Atheist Tuesday: They Came from…Beyond!!!

| 117 Comments

For almost a year now at this blog atheists and other militant unbelievers have been posting here. For the most part, I allow their comments with very little editing because they demonstrate to the believer the true sad state of an unredeemed mind. Their objections are pointed, at times sarcastic, a little bit brutal, and always, always, against what we Christians believe.

If you are a Christian follower of this site, you may be wondering what is their purpose in being here? What do they hope to achieve and why do I allow them to comment at all? Believe it or not, I have a redemptive purpose in mind, a strategy that relies on God rather than my own weak and feeble arguments. In other words, this is an evangelistic strategy….

You also may be wondering who are these unbelievers and are they organized? Do they have some nefarious Master plan to take over the world? Or do they do this for honor, to serve man?

Time allowing, in the coming weeks on Atheist Tuesday, I will slowly reveal their not-so-hidden agenda, their hypocrisy, and, their failure.

It’s a cookbook!

  1. @ Nohm
    I’m sorry for assuming how you’d respond. I wouldn’t want anyone assuming my response either. Forgive me?

    this is my conclusion…
    Please allow me to take back my stance that psyhics tap into supernatural forces because…
    I cannot prove that a psychic taps into supernatural forces, BUT I cannot prove that they don’t either.
    A psychic represents him/herself as having divine gifts or supernatural abilities…whether or not they do is beside the point…

    “The Bible strongly condemns spiritism, mediums, the occult, and psychics (Leviticus 20:27; Deuteronomy 18:10-13). Horoscopes, tarot cards, astrology, fortune tellers, palm readings, and séances fall into this category as well.” (got questions)

    We are commanded to have NOTHING to do with sorcery, witchcraft, future telling, etc…If the psychics are posing as having supernatural abilities when they are, in fact, cold reading or whatever, they are still having SOMETHING to do with the things God forbids in scripture…just by representing themselves as possessing and utilizing supernatural powers.

    Please consider this…
    “If” Satan, is real and the things listed sorcery, witchcraft, future telling, etc…are his working grounds…wouldn’t giving countenance to such things be a dangerous ground to tread? Wouldn’t it be nodding to something evil, in spite of, whether it’s practiced or not? Wouldn’t that open a door to the occult?

    Get what I’m saying here?

    “Whatever the case and wherever the source of the information, nothing connected to spiritism, witchcraft, or astrology is a godly means of discovering information. How does God want us to discern His will for our life? God’s plan is simple, yet powerful and effective: study the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and pray for wisdom (James 1:5).” ( copied got questions)

    I guess my tagging along bank robbery accomplice was a bad comparison…it made sense to me..sorry

    P.S I wasn’t copping out with asking whether you believe in Jesus or Satan….honestly.
    I asked because if you believed you’d understand the things I speak about.
    I just want for you to understand.

  2. Yes, Garrett.

  3. Actually we CAN prove they aren’t tapping into supernatural powers. You can look up videos on YouTube debunking the very basis for astrology. If psychics aren’t able to predict important events (not a lot of forewarning about 9/11, eh?). If their powers don’t work, then they obviously aren’t tapping into squat.

    That’s a big IF, Tracy, and it certainly requires a lot of evidence before I toss out my board and video games that have demonic themes and references (BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!). Which is funny since, as a Christian, I avoided that stuff. Now, as an Atheist, I’m further from occultism than was before since I don’t even believe in demons or witchcraft to begin with. It’s just fantasy.

  4. As a Chrisitan Garrett?
    Oooookay….I’m confused… If you were a Christian surely you would understand what I am saying, right? How can one be a Christian and then not be?

    As for now… just because you don’t believe- doesn’t change the truth. And just as easily as you don’t believe is as easily as you can.

  5. I was a Christian, Tracy, and then a year ago I became an Atheist. It was not a quick process, but rather the result of several years of dealing with the evidence concluding that what I had held to be true was, in fact, not.

    Yes, I understand what you are saying, but it’s from the same perspective as a person who doesn’t believe in Santa tell me how we have to be good. I held similar views, yes, but I ultimately discovered that they were views lacking in a reality-based worldview.

  6. I guess I can understand the “avoid people who say they have supernatural powers, because God commands it” thing.

    The question that arises (for me) is how Christians should treat angels (et al). Jesus manifested abilities like the ones listed above; stories of angels have them providing advice which helps mortal avoid future calamities; a human who’s in direct communication with God may be able to do the same.

    How can a Christian distinguish between “good supernatural” and “bad supernatural”? After all, Satan is a trickster. He could use those powers to actually help people, in an attempt to get them to reject God.

  7. Can you imagine The Horned One appearing in this thread, poofing $10,000 in front of the monitor of each non-believer, demonstrating supernatural powers? We’d be convinced, instantly. We’d probably become Satanists in a flash.

    If The Horned One wanted to get us in trouble with God, that’d be a pretty effective way of doing it. Instead, he supposedly gives some humans the ability to make vague predictions about the future? How in heck is THAT supposed to tempt us?

  8. My apologies for the risqué humor, Steve. It was a little too tempting an opportunity to pass up.

    • No problem, Whateverman. When I was a teen I thought that type of humor was cute, too. Also, I understand that you have no power to resist temptation. So, youthful folly and unregenerated are deadly, unfortunate combos.

  9. Well we know Christians have no sense of humor, so we try to tone it down.

  10. Steve, I’m curious… do you believe that psychics are using satanic supernatural powers?

    Why, or why not?

  11. So is that an early announcement of yet another delay for your “Why atheists post here” article?

  12. @Garrett- No it is not like Santa!
    @Whateverman,
    We can distinguish between good and evil because God verifies and confirms the truth. He expsoes the evil for what it is.

  13. Tracy wrote the following to me: We can distinguish between good and evil because God verifies and confirms the truth. He expsoes the evil for what it is.

    You KNOW that’s not true, Tracy. If it were true, the anti-Christ would be visible from day 1, and he would never be allowed to sneak into a position of power.

    No, evil is supposedly pretty sneaky, and the Bible is replete with examples of it. According to Christian doctrine, God in no way guarantees that you will recognize good from evil.
