A Study on Atheism for Christians

05 November 2013, 08:37

A Study on Atheism for Christians

In a bid to understand the more intricate disciplines of the atheist’s motivations and subsequent mindset, I came across some of the jewels depicting the pinnacle of the atheist cause. Individuals defining themselves as front runners and the authority on building a society run with a distinct atheist agenda.  The atheist want to build a society without God and His influence on people, vigorously trying to destroy any voice depicting any “other” (than the atheist agenda) envisioned outcome.  They would like to “protect” society at its core, by “protecting” the individual from God; thus: an atheist envisioned “free man”. This “free man” is able to do what ever he wants, as long as such an individual does not violate the “freedoms” of the society he lives in…, a man having the liberties of a god (Man being god of his own life and withholding {revoking his right to}, his ability to enforce “evil” on society), because there supposedly is no God… They unfortunately, conveniently forget that an individual living without a moral conscience is without morals.

Their agenda is thus just as bigoted as any religious institution (the leaven of the Pharisees); by failing to truly liberate any individual. They conveniently make a rule of “no-rules”, as to unburden their own conscience from the constraints their current disposition in a Godly moral society (which is a dubious term, considering South Africa’s current state); yet they and their peers are still “forced” to adhere to. They experience a form of a “mind chain” of religious morality, still burdening their in cumbered hearts, forcing them to admit to having sin, due to their involvement in a secular society, that still reveres Godly morality as its basis, even thou the existence of Godly morality within that society is severely hampered and disfigured at best. Communism is one example of such “liberty”, the liberal post modern atheist man another…; both moderate to extreme versions of atheist ideology dismembers morality at its core, with the best of intentions, by trying to dismember Godly morality. They then enslave the future generations by not giving it a clear grasp of what is moral and just to do, by disregarding the cornerstone of morality. 

How can that happen with the best laid plans of moral education? How can you debar all rules except one, and expect a fair and just society? The atheist agenda endeavor to instill a conscience of morality in the future generation by giving them a non-religious education in morality. But, how is this viable? “Do as you please as long as you do not violate the “freedoms” of society”, and then enforce a moral conscience upon a young person, who is without the understanding (knowledge), of what actions could actually violate the freedoms of a society? And even if he has full knowledge of his actions, am in no ways bound to “do as he is told”, because he has in effect a “no-rules” ideology…?

For a person to respect another he has to be aware of his misconduct (sin) that could infringe or impede the liberties his neighbor. He has to live and breathe obedience to an authority, and the laws that govern it. He in effect can not live and be; the atheist propaganda slogan: “…I am my own god, because there is no God…” An atheist is therefore a subsequent slave to the laws and rules of society, and definitely not its master, because an Atheist society has no reward for good behavior but only punishment for disobedience. God rewards “god fearing biblical good behavior”, and punishes bad (disobedient to God/sin), behavior at Judgment Day. An atheist is a bar-coded man (faceless number) of a propaganda system, not master of his/her “world” at all. Atheism merely gives an illusion of grandeur, - saying: “…our knowledge is the only “Truth…” (conveniently forgetting that a few hundred years ago secular science considered the earth as flat). In my opinion it depends on what you know…, and not what someone else tells you, you should know, or is the norm (fashion) of the day…? Atheism deem to punish immoral behavior without giving the person a “will” to obey it – enslaving its follower because its followers doesn't comprehend the “will” to obey the statute

Is there such a thing as truth then? Or is “truth” manipulated to fancy the propaganda of the day? Your social consciousness should not determine your “knowledge of truth”. Truth should be the total sum of what you consider as fact, never resting at a full drown conclusions, but always questioning and learning. Otherwise you are a sheep, herding to your click. Isn’t it? Where does knowledge and wisdom start?

Proverbs 9:10

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding

 Atheism at it its core is the doctrine of self-centeredness and the egoistic seeking of its own advancement above any other, it has only one vision; and that is to exalt the person “wielding” it (indoctrinated by it), as a supreme being: as to liberate him/ her from the consciousness of “sin” and its consequences. Thus: “…to be made god of yourself…” implodes every time, because it can not bind, the person to his/her actions effectively.

How can society be effectively moral; and not selectively moral?

By the acknowledgement of sin and the repentance from it: the conscious decision to walk not as before (in a state of selfishness and sin), but be truly liberated by the Blood of Jesus, reborn as a new creation…  Deserting our social consciousness and taking up the cross to follow Jesus. Luckily for us! God desires a relationship with Himself and not a doctrine of religiousness. He desires fellowship with us. He will teach us himself, because He promises it to us. We should not even accept the words of our teachers (pastors and preachers), without asking God’s insight an authentication by His Spirit. Obedience to God and the ability to live morally in a society: can only truly come through the act of loving Jesus. Because He first loved us, we recognize our sin and repent from it, to live morally God-accepting lives in the Presence of Jesus. God rewards “god fearing biblical good behavior” accordingly (Hebrews 11:6). Eternal Life is but one example…  Atheism deem to punish immoral behavior without giving the person a “will” to obey it. Thank you Jesus!

John 6:45

It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.

Some examples of the pinnacles; the atheist propaganda machine can reach…?

1.            Alfred Kinsey

Atheists love to propagate their agenda by referring to “Cherry Picked -Old Testament Scriptures” and the current Catholic Clergy Scandals as prime examples of the fallibility of Christianity (by not guarding innocence), however, seldom mentioning the fact that their moral disillusionment can undermine an entire generation; case and point: Alfred Kinsey was an infamous American biologist and professor of entomology and zoology, who made groundbreaking research on human sexuality. Undoubtedly, he helped to progress social values – but, nevertheless, he took sadistic pleasure out of his research, and did some very weird stuff, including exploiting children for sex. Moreover, much of his research was fraud. How can this “study” not have a detrimental effect on the pulse of a society? Questioning a pedophile on societal trends? Although it is widely known that he was quite intricately involved in his own work, one can only speculate on his involvement with children. Sickening stuff isn’t it?

Wikipedia: “…Kinsey wrote about pre-adolescent orgasms using data in tables 30 to 34 of the male volume, which report observations of orgasms in over three-hundred children between the ages of five months and fourteen years.[23] This information was said to have come from adults' childhood memories, or from parent or teacher observation.[24] Kinsey said he also interviewed nine men who had sexual experiences with children, and who told him about the children's responses and reactions. Little attention was paid to this part of Kinsey's research at the time, but where Kinsey had gained this information began to be questioned nearly 40 years later.[25] It was later revealed that Kinsey used data from a single pedophile and presented it as being from various sources…”

1 John 3: 6

6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.

Anyone who defiles a child didn't see Jesus. You have to be an atheist to be a pedophile and a pedophile is therefore an atheist…  Are all of the preachers converted? God should give us discernment of spirit so we can distinguish between the wolves and shepherds.  May Jesus come quickly to help us?

2.            Napoleon Bonaparte

Many people agree that Napoleon Bonaparte, heavily involved in the anti-clerical French Revolution was atheist – he claimed that “all religions have been made by men”. He was one of the best ever military commanders, and conquered much of Europe. He staged a coup and declared himself Emperor. While he ended anarchy in post-Revolution France, many considered him a tyrant and usurper. He ignored treaties and conventions, seeking undisputed rule throughout Europe. He plundered conquered territories. His 17 years of rule resulted in the bankruptcy of France, loss of many of her territories, six million dead Europeans and economic setback in just one generation.

After his incarceration/ exile to The Rock of St. Helena, he was quoted saying:

"I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His Empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him."


3.            Than Shwe

He was the 77 year old dictator of Myanmar/Burma, the head of the ruling military junta. He oversaw the formation of one of the most closed societies in the world. There is no notion of free press, and journalists who opposed his regime are detained. Aung Suu Kyi, the leader of the main opposition party, is kept in house detention by him. Civil servants are forbidden from resigning. Burma has the highest rate of child soldiers in the world, and uses forced labor on construction projects. As far as dictators go, Than Shwe keeps a relatively low, and even sullen, profile. Nevertheless, he reportedly leads an extravagant lifestyle, while his people continue to suffer a life of extreme poverty and natural disasters. In the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis, he refused entry into the country for many foreign aid organizations. Another definition of what an atheist in power is capable of, noted that he was influenced by communism, with atheism as one of its core principles, Than Shwe sets the bar.

4.            Kim Jong IL

He was the de facto leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, and responsible for the deaths of four million of his fellow Koreans. He was also at the heart of a bizarre personality cult; apocryphal stories such as how “at the time of his birth there were flashes of lightening and thunder, the iceberg in the pond on Mt. Paektu emitted a mysterious sound as it broke, and bright double rainbows rose up” are abundant. Those caught stealing food in the famine-struck nation, or attempting to cross the borders, are subject to public execution. Kim continued his lavish lifestyle and military obsession in spite of the crumbling economy. In North Korea he and his father were deified, considered saviors of the whole universe. 250,000 dissidents are confined to “re-education camps”. He has waged a war on South Korea that involved assassinating South Korean leaders and blowing up South Korean planes. He presented a great threat to the world in terms of nuclear warfare, having persuaded the Soviet Union to award him a nuclear reactor in 1984. When communist atheism sentiment is taken to its truest virtue: making its dictator’s a “god”

5.            Jeffrey Dahmer                      

Born:                    May 21, 1960

Died:                    November 28, 1994 (aged 34)

Conviction:         Child molestation

Disorderly conduct

Indecent exposure


Public intoxication

Sentence Life imprisonment (15 life terms)

A perfect example of an individual influenced by atheist centered propaganda and some of the extreme consequences it might have …

How do you atheist define morality? Well, Mr. Dahmer exhibited his take on the concept. He was an infamous serial killer and atheist sentenced to 900 years in prison, said “if a person doesn't think that there is a God to be accountable to, then what’s the point of trying to modify your behavior to keep it within acceptable ranges?”. He brutally killed seventeen men and boys, dismembering them, storing their parts and indulging in cannibalism and necrophilia. In 1991, he was caught by the police after one of his would-be victims escaped. Despite pleading not guilty on the basis on insanity, the court found him sane and fully accountable. He later expressed remorse.

6.            Jim Jones  


Born:                     James Warren Jones - May 13, 1931

Died:                     November 18, 1978 (aged 47)

Occupation:        Religious leader

Religion:               Atheist (self-proclaimed)

He drew people into atheism through the People’s Temple, largely based in California. He said that he “took the church and used the church to bring people to atheism”. In 1978, 909 people at the restricted communist “sanctuary” he presided over in Jones town, Guyana, committed “revolutionary suicide” at his command. This occurred after the arrival of an American delegation, which he claimed was conspiring against the People’s Temple. Men, women and children took a vial of cyanide and died within five minutes. Only a few people escaped. This event was the largest single loss of American civilian life, in a non-natural disaster, up until 9/11. This entry has the unique status of being on both the atheism and Christianity list. The reason is that the majority of people considered Jones to be the leader of a type of Christian cult, but, as the quote above illustrates, it was really a ruse to attract people who would otherwise have steered well clear of him.

7.            Benito Mussolini   

Wikipedia: “…Mussolini would become anti-clerical like his father. As a young man, he "proclaimed himself to be an atheist and several times tried to shock an audience by calling on God to strike him dead."[146] He denounced socialists who were tolerant of religion, or who had their children baptized. He believed that science had proven there was no God, and that the historical Jesus was ignorant and mad. He considered religion a disease of the psyche, and accused Christianity of promoting resignation and cowardice…”

He is notorious for his war crimes as a Fascist dictator during World War II. As a young man he openly declared his atheism, and in his early career as a politician was openly anti-clerical. He was the Italian leader of the National Fascist Party, became Prime Minister in 1922 and was eventually a dictator who severely restricted freedom of speech. Mussolini supported Hitler’s conquest of Austria. In 1935, he invaded Ethiopia, using poison gas, bombing Red Cross hospitals and concentration camps to kill civilians and destroy “inferior” cultures. He ordered the execution of prisoners without trial and the shooting of “witch-doctors”. Italian troops used public executions, hostage taking and burning of villages to crush the Slavic population of Yugoslavia. These acts are now widely considered an attempt at genocide. However, later he tried to associate Fascism with Catholicism in order to garner dwindling support (however his widow made it clear that he was still staunchly atheist). Mussolini was also deeply anti-Semitic

8.            Mao Zedong

He led the Communist Party of China to victory in the Chinese Civil War, helping to establish the People’s Republic of China. He had ambitions for a strong China, but his programs largely failed altogether. He has been blamed for the death of between 20 and 67 million of his “comrades”. Under his insane rule there was a culture akin to anarchy that killed the economy and industrial production. His “Great Leap Forward” triggered a catastrophic and massive famine. However, he is most notorious for the precepts of the “Cultural Revolution”, which led to perhaps the greatest era of cultural vandalism the world has ever known. Antiques, historical sites, artifacts, ancient documents, feng shui traditions, Chinese traditional dresses and monasteries were destroyed for being associated with the “old ways of thinking”. Many copies of the Qu’ran were burnt. Red Guard groups around the country destroyed political and educational stability, criticizing anyone who considered himself superior, destroying reputations and lives. Mao, privately, led a life of great deviancy and excess. He also exacted revenge on all those, mainly intellectuals and professionals, who had disgraced Mao in his earlier career. He also targeted anyone with links to the Chinese Nationalist Party as well as anyone who posed a threat to him. Five million were executed in death camps. 36 million were persecuted and tortured. There were even instances of cannibalism.

9.            Pol Pot       

He was the leader of the Khmer Rouge and Prime Minister of Cambodia from 1976 to 1979, having been de facto leader since mid-1975. During his time in power Pol Pot imposed an extreme version of agrarian communism, where all city dwellers were relocated to the countryside to work in collective farms and forced labour projects. The combined effect of slave labour, malnutrition, poor medical care and executions is estimated to have killed around 2 million Cambodians (approximately one third of the population). His regime achieved special notoriety by singling out all intellectuals, and other “bourgeois enemies”, for murder. The Khmer Rouge committed mass executions in sites known as the Killing Fields, and the executed were buried in mass graves. In order to save ammunition, executions were often carried out using hammers, axe handles, spades or sharpened bamboo sticks. His attempts to “cleanse” the country resulted in the deaths of 1.7 to 2.5 million people. He also had an intense dislike of anyone with the semblance of being intelligent, such as those who wore glasses or who spoke another language.

Wikipedia: “…The Khmer Rouge also classified people by religion and ethnic group. They banned all religion and dispersed minority groups, forbidding them to speak their languages or to practice their customs. They especially targeted Buddhist monks, Muslims, Christians, Western-educated intellectuals, educated people in general, people who had contact with Western countries or with Vietnam, disabled people, and the ethnic Chinese, Laotians and Vietnamese [citation needed]. Some were put in the S-21 camp for interrogation involving torture in cases where a confession was useful to the government. Many others were summarily executed…”

10.          Joseph Stalin           

He was General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union’s Central Committee, from 1922 until his death in 1953. Under Stalin’s leadership, the Ukraine suffered a famine (Holodomor) so great it is considered by many to be an act of genocide on the part of Stalin’s government. Estimates of the number of deaths range from 2.5 million to 10 million. The famine was caused by direct political and administrative decisions. In addition to the famine, Stalin ordered purges within the Soviet Union of any person deemed to be an enemy of the state (i.e. capitalists, theists). In total, estimates of the total number murdered under Stalin’s reign, range from 10 million to 60 million. His government promoted atheism with mass propaganda in school, and held a terror campaign against the religious. He crushed the Russian Orthodox Church, leveling thousands of churches and shooting more than 100,000 priests, monks and nuns between 1937 and 1938.

N.B. Adolf Hitler is left off this list because it is widely acknowledged that, while he abhorred organized religion, there is much evidence that he engaged in “nazi mysticism” or occultism.

Then there is the founder of the American Atheists and its president from 1963 to 1986

Madalyn Murray O'Hair

Born:                                    Madalyn Mays - April 13, 1919

Died:                                    September 29, 1995 (aged 76)

Cause of death:                               Murdered by David R. Waters

Wikipedia: “…Madalyn Murray O'Hair (April 13, 1919 – September 29, 1995)[1] was an American atheist activist. She was the founder of the American Atheists and its president from 1963 to 1986. She created the first issues of American Atheist Magazine. One of her sons, Jon Garth Murray, was the president of the organization from 1986 to 1995, while she remained de facto president during these nine years. She is best known for the Murray v. Curlett lawsuit, which led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling ending official Bible-reading in American public schools in 1963. This came just one year after the Supreme Court prohibited officially sponsored prayer in schools in Engel v. Vitale. After she founded the American Atheists and won Murray v. Curlett, she achieved attention to the extent that in 1964 Life magazine spuriously and ironically referred to her as "the most hated woman in America".[2][3

In 1995 she was kidnapped, murdered, and her body mutilated, along with her son Jon Murray and granddaughter Robin Murray O'Hair, by former American Atheist office manager David Roland Waters…”

What a sad story… A pity Mr. DR Waters couldn't selectively maneuver his morality to not kill his leader and idol in atheism Mrs. O'Hair. His delusion, that he was god, harmed his dearest neighbor, almost like Cain did his brother….

So in conclusion: if you subscribe to an atheism ideology that has a communist, moderate or postmodern extreme liberal version, you are holding on to a “pie in the sky”. Whether the atheism ideology you subscribe to can provide substantial amount of wealth and an illusion of self-sufficiency (cooking a frog with cold water) or a communist famine like Zimbabwe, its effect on the morality of a society can be immensely detrimental. If we consider South Africa and its extremely liberal constitution, we can clearly see the effects of a “do as you please” policy, by evaluating our crime stats. It is clear that the majority of South African do not have a clear and present indication of what is right and what is wrong. Even thou 70% subscribe to being a Christian, it is clear that religiousness and a relationship is vastly different concepts… Our consideration for our neighbor, family and society we live in, has taken a severe nose dive.

With Bible prophecy clear on the mark of the beast and subsequent end times, it do seem like the atheist are the perfect bar-coded men needed for the job. They are cultivated in a media-greenhouse with no hope, easily made to fear, to go to war and to stimulate the economy at the drop of a penny. They are the storm troopers of tomorrow, overly stimulated with technological upgrades and vast amounts of conflicting information and then pounded with societal peer reviews validating their opinions fit for their environmental indoctrination. They live a delusional free life, and in some cases with many sexual partners. The family is being destroyed and the next generation has the government as its parents, being taught by an atheist outcome education system. They worship the creation, and not it’s Creator. Fear is the “supreme ruler” of Atheism. Instead of being fearless and taking up the responsibility Godly morality demands, they are bar-coded men and women (we are seeing - the making of brainwashed drones, societal zombies). The uneducated masses during the Crusades, unable to read and taught the word of God in Latin, by power hungry clergy, were their predecessors.

Romans 10: 10 to 15

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”[e] 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”[f]

 14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”[g]

May everyone come to Jesus…
