The Apostle Paul tells us that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28). "All things" includes both good and evil. God can use struggles, heartbreaks, sickness, debilitating chronic pain, mental trauma, mass murderers, child slavery, intentional starvation of millions of citizens, and even feminists to bring about His glory (Isaiah 48:9-11). Even though we may not understand the reasoning behind them (Isaiah 55:8-9), we can trust they are yet a part of His Perfect, Divine plan. If God could not control evil, He would not be God.
The LORD tells things will happen exactly
as He intends (Isaiah 14:24). Nothing is random. Nothing comes by chance. God has resolved to do what He will do, and nothing and no one can stand in His way. Through the Prophet Isaiah, He assures us that everything He plans will come to pass. God does what He wants (Isaiah 46:10).
Praise God, this even includes the foul, mocking lips of New Atheist High Priest, Richard Dawkins! Richard Dawkins is leading souls straight to the loving arms of Christ!
Reading Dawkins challenged me to go beyond my comfort zone and honestly confront the issues holding me back from a full commitment to faith. My sense of The God Delusion is that it is written as a testimony to Dawkins’ belief system (which I call fundamentalist atheism) and that the author cherry picks convenient quotes to bolster his opinion that esteemed scientists (such as Einstein) couldn’t possibly be ignorant enough to actually believe in a supernatural God, no matter what they may have said to the contrary. In fact, anyone with any intelligence at all couldn’t possible believe in a supernatural God. Dawkins is preaching to his atheist choir and evidently they loved the book based on their many five-star recommendations of it. But in that sense, Dawkins is no different than the many Christian authors who write in a similar manner. There is a pre-judgment that whoever disagrees with the premise of the book is, essentially, an idiot! Well, I don’t like to be called an idiot.
Now the Atheist Media
is scrambling to find excuses to dismiss this great Exodus Out Of Atheism!
