Misery Loves Company

Why do atheists evangelize? Atheism is hopeless
Since I've been sharing Bible Love Notes devotions on Pinterest, I've discovered that some atheists are especially bothered by posts about creation

I always try to respond courteously but invariably, I'm met with insults about my intelligence.  

I understand why Christians are evangelistic: we believe people waste their lives here on earth and spend eternity in hell if they don't know Christ. 

But I'm always confused by these evangelistic atheists. What purpose do they have in trying to convince us there's no God? Why do they care that we have faith?

We believe in an all-knowing, all-loving, all-wise Creator God. But they want us to believe we're mere accidents of nature.

We believe we'll spend eternity in paradise with our Lord. But they want us to believe when life is over, it's over.

It seems as if "misery loves company." No wonder God says: 
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalm 14:1

  1. In what atheists believe, there would be no harm in us believing in God or anything else. Nope, it doesn't make sense.

  2. It is human nature for people who feel like they have been denied a voice to then try to suppress others once they've been "empowered". Praying that you will always access His provision as you are challenged in this way!

  3. I like the way you worded this,

    "I understand why Christians are evangelistic: we believe people waste their lives here on earth and spend eternity in hell if they don't know Christ.
    But why would atheists be evangelistic? So we can join them in their belief that we're accidents of nature without purpose, morals, or hope?".

    Great way of explaining it.

  4. It is always sad when readers reacts so forcefully. Why not have a normal discussion? Anyway, I am glad you are writing the way you do and I hope she keeps reading along.

  5. I've often wondered why many atheists seem to want to force others to lose hope and believe in...nothing. But, your title says it all, Gail: Misery Loves Company! But, maybe somewhere deep inside those atheists who are shouting the loudest are shouting because they want to be heard by God. Do you know what I mean? I pray that their hearts soften.
