Default Landover Agrees with Atheist Richard Dawkins - 02-18-2012, 06:54 AM

It's from Godless England, but it could be from anywhere. The unwashed masses often wonder why the Landover Baptist Church is God's only True Church in existence, yet the facts are staring them in the face.

Don't read or believe everything in the Bible (KJV1611), just "baptized", don't believe our Savior rose from the dead, rarely attend church and don't believe in the power of prayer, don't believe Jesus was the Son of God – it's all there, you can't call yourself a Christian.

Quote:
And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For many are called, but few are chosen.

- Matthew 22:11-14

Richard Dawkins and His 'Oh God' Moment
Michael Brown
Feb 17, 2012



The interview in question took place on February 13th and aired on the Today program in England, where Rev. Giles Fraser and Dawkins discussed the findings of a recent survey conducted by the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. As reported by Stephen Pollard in the Telegraph, "The statistics purport to show that most people who identify themselves as Christian turn out, when questioned on what they actually think, to be ‘overwhelmingly secular in their attitudes on issues ranging from gay rights to religion in public life’. Dawkins’s conclusion is that these self-identified Christians are ‘not really Christian at all’."

To be sure, it is absurd to think that Dawkins is the last person who should be making pronouncements on who is or is not a Christian, and Fraser, an ultra-liberal himself, took Dawkins to task, arguing that people who professed to be Christians were entitled to be recognized as Christians.

But is self-identification an accurate measure? Is there no such thing as a religious hypocrite? What about a nominal Christian? And didn’t Jesus tell us that we should judge a tree by its fruit?

According to data from the Dawkins survey, "the research found that fewer than three in ten (28%) say one of the reasons is that they believe in the teachings of Christianity. People are much more likely to consider themselves to be Christian because they were christened or baptised into the religion (72%) or because their parents were members of the religion (38%) than because of personal belief."

Come again? If more than 70% of them do not "believe in the teachings of Christianity," how can they call themselves Christian?

But it gets worse: "The majority (60%) have not read any part of the Bible, independently and from choice, for at least a year." And, "Over a third (37%) have never or almost never prayed outside a church service, with a further 6% saying they pray independently and from choice less than once a year." Also, "Only a quarter (26%) say they completely believe in the power of prayer, with one in five (21%) saying they either do not really believe in it or do not believe in it at all."

A Christian who does not read the Bible, pray, or believe in the power of prayer?

But it gets even worse: "Just a third (32%) believe Jesus was physically resurrected, with one in five (18%) not believing in the resurrection even in a spiritual sense; half (49%) do not think of Jesus as the Son of God, with one in twenty-five (4%) doubting he existed at all."

How wonderful! "Christians" who don’t believe their Savior rose from the dead – which basically ends the story right there, the truth be told – and who don’t believe he was the Son of God or, for some, that he even existed. Yet they identify as Christians?

This would be like people identifying as Muslims and yet denying that the Koran was God’s Word, denying that Muhammad was Allah’s prophet, and denying that Islam is the true path to God. Could they rightly be called Muslims?

They could be called "intelligent Muslims"!


Bible boring? Nonsense!
Try Bible in a Year with Brother V, or join Shirlee and the kids as they discuss Real Bible Stories!
You can't be a Christian if you don't know God's Word!

Brother WJB, I am stunned. Baffled. Flummoxed.

I agree with every word Dawkins wrote there.

Is it possible that, for the shortest period of time, he was touched by the Holy Ghost?


Psalm 81:10:
I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt:
open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
