I recently had a discussion with my wife about the topics of discussion I find on different blogs, of course mainly God, Creation , evolution and topics like that. She posed the question to me of why do I spend time commenting on these subjects when most of the responses are against me and that most of the responders will not change their minds anyways. So I thought about it and came up with the answer that I do it because I care. Once of the hardest things to come to grips with as a new believer is that not everyone I know is going to heaven. I do not say I know who is and who isn’t, but the odds are that a lot of them will not. So in the face of losing there friendship I feel a need to tell them about Jesus and his sacrifice to save us from our sin.
Recently I have moved from face to face “witnessing” to online evangelism. I find that online I get a bigger audience that wishes to speak on this topic and are not shy to speak their minds. So I post comments on blogs to help get the message out in hopes that someone will hear the true gospel of Jesus and not just what is being said by those who hate Jesus. Then in hearing the truth these people will be left with questions that will lead them to answers that will ultimate allow them to enter heaven. So thats my agenda, I comment because I do not want to see anyone go to hell, but would rather be in heaven with them when the time comes.
Then the thought hit me, why do Atheists blog against Christianity so much? I know, they don’t believe in any god form any religion, but I am going to single in on Jesus haters. What do they hope to accomplish in proven a Christian wrong? I could not find an answer to this in my mind so I am hoping to find answers in the blogsphere. Why do Atheist spend their time on the internet trying to prove their beliefs are the only truth? What is their motivation?
