Confrontation with a Radical Atheist
2 Peter 3:12
"Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?"
Creation Moments and friends of our ministry spend countless hours sharing their faith and the truth of biblical creation on social networking websites. One such creationist, Allen Dunckley, Th.D. recently ran into a person he describes as a radical atheist. The atheist laid down a challenge with these words: "Demonstrate a causal link to why your god needs to exist or does exist."
Dr. Dunckley was quick to respond with a question of his own: "Can you explain to us how is it that the positively charged protons in the nucleus of an atom don't repel each other since it is a fact that like charges do so? By the laws of physics, the atomic nucleus should not exist, yet it does."
He continued: "This fact is consistent with Colossians 1:17 that says, 'by Him (Jesus Christ) all things consist.' 'Consist' is from a Greek word which means 'held together.' So here is demonstrable empirical fact that God exists and that His existence is what holds the very fabric of matter together. So the existence of the material universe is dependent on the existence of the Creator Himself. All that needs to be done to destroy the universe is for God to literally 'let go' of matter and – poof – gone just like the Bible says in 2 Peter 3:12."
As you can see, Christians are using social networking websites to share their faith with people, some of whom live on the other side of the world. Does God want you to join them in declaring God's truth unto the ends of the earth?
