Standing Up For My God

By on August 8, 2014

Someone referred to me as being a fake Christian for posting the blog on “Why are the atheist angry with God and Christians”, they said that we are just supposed to show love and not say nothing and that will draw them.  She stated that perhaps they are angry because they have been hurt by people in the church.

My Response to this:

I understand that there are some people who have been hurt by other people in the church.  In fact, probably the majority of people have been hurt at one time or another. If we all, were to turn away from God and turn against God and other Christians because we had been hurt, the church would be empty. There are just too many Christian who want to hide behind the four walls of the church and not confront the work of the enemy. Some Christians hide behind “we need to just show them love” and yes we do. However, I believe God is also looking for believers who are not afraid to go into the enemy camp and declare that Jesus is Lord! Even a bully usually chooses to pick on a person who they know will not stand up for themselves, someone who thinks “well maybe if I’m nice and do what they tell me to do, the bully will leave me alone” “maybe if I don’t say anything when they take my stuff, hit me, kick me, take my money, they will eventually stop’. NO! The only way to face a bully is to stand up to him! Satan is a bully, and he uses the atheist to come into our territory and say all sought of things about our God and we run and say “just show them love and maybe they will leave.” God is not calling us to be wimps. He is calling us to stand up for him and to speak the truth of his word. Speaking the truth does not mean you are not walking in love, it means you are simply standing up for your GOD!

    Hello again! As a former Christian I understand the sentiments you express about bullies. Just as all different walks of life have their aggressive people (the bullies), I invite you to consider that there are also people out there who just want to open a dialogue with people who have different ideas. Although I am an atheist, I can assure you that I am not an agent of Satan (or any other nefarious spirit for that matter).

    I understand that my views on the divine are diametrically opposed to yours. This can be a troubling thing. But even though we do not agree on some things, the only way we can agree on anything is to listen to each other.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I enjoyed reading them!

      The one I listen to is God. I do not have anything against you and I’m glad to see you following my post, However I will not compromise my beliefs in God, just because it may offend someone. If God speaks against something then I speak against it. If God speaks for it, then I speak for it.
      God bless,
