Blind Faith?

Here's a common objection by self proclaimed atheists - they say, “Your religion is based on blind faith.”

Don't we all place our faith in many things during our everyday life? Not blindly, of course, but based on past experience and the evidence that we see. The same evidence that we see in creation (Rom 1:20). Thus, we see that it is not blind faith at all, but faith based on reasonable evidence and logic.
And we can also see from this that "atheists" don't exist at all, they simply suppress the knowledge of God out of hatred.
I mean, seriously, why would anyone gripe, complain and rail against what they claim they don't even believe exists? That almost seems insane, doesn't it?

With the understanding that there really are no atheists, we must also recognize that there is more to being a Christian than simply believing. Even the demons believe - and tremble (James 2:19), yet they have no salvation.

Our belief, based on all of the archaeological evidence, the fulfilled prophecy, and the promises given to us through the historical account given in God's Word, can still leave one as a false convert.

We must also place our trust in Jesus Christ, relying on Him alone for our salvation. We repent of our sins, turning away from them, even hating those sins that we once loved, as much as God has always hated them. We will be a new creation (2 Cor 5:17), our lives will be different. We won't want or do the same things that we once did. Not that we could ever earn our way into God's graces, but out of gratitude will flow good works.

150,000 people die every day, that's two people every second - off into eternity. At that point, your fate is sealed (Heb 9:27), there is no longer any time, you will either be with the Lord or suffering eternal torment forever.

Don't put it off until tomorrow, because you are not guaranteed another tomorrow. TODAY is the day of salvation (2 Cor 6:2). Repent and put your faith in Christ alone before it's too late.

Soli Deo Gloria
