Debating an atheist on the street

Hello dear blog readers,

Just yesterday I happened to arrive a half hour early for a Bible study in town. Wanting to get some exercise I went walking down the neighborhood. The streets were long enough, so it happened to fill out my half hour. Right before I started I noticed a man about fifty leaving his house with his two ten-year old kids on bikes.

On my way back to the Bible study I was stopped by the man who I asked if I was the man with the car with all these -provocative- bumper stickers on them. Notably: “Gay genes don’t get passed on – homosexuality is a sin”, and: “Hosni MuBarack Saddam Hussein Obama bin Laden”.

I use these bumper stickers to get attention and make people think. Especially liberals, to challenge their reigning worldview.

Well, the man turned out to be a liberal atheist, so when I answered in the affirmative, he immediately opened fire on me. He demanded how I could put put such “hateful” words on my bumper sticker. I replied simply that that was what the Bible said, and that God created mankind male and female, and that homosexuality was an aberration of God’s original design. Gay couples break up at a larger rate than straight people, BTW. The atheist could not fathom that I would bring up such a thing as sin, yet people break the Commandments daily. It just didn’t occur to him that the two female Muslim members of the House of Representatives hurl insults at Christians, not even stopping at mocking vice president Mike Pence for his evangelical faith. Some atheists can be real fowl-mouthed and this atheist cussed my religion out at least three times during our fifteen minute verbal duel. In front of his own kids…

Things turned to matters concerning the truthfulness of the Bible. Using the knowledge that I had learned in apologetics class I made a point to the atheist that as skeptic, he knows nothing. If a skeptic is truly consistent, he will take his skepticism to the very logical end and doubt everything. Thus, the atheist knows virtually nothing. As Rene Descartes said, “I think therefore I am”. What Descartes meant by this is that an observer can doubt everything that he sees, hears or touches. The only one thing he cannot doubt is that his mind is somehow turned on and working. The only thing he knows is that he exists. Pathetic, as some atheists would say… The atheist is like a man who has locked himself out of the house of knowledge and thrown the key away. How so? Because this house is the house of God, and all knowledge starts with the fear of God. Only God can know everything. Only God can be objective. Only God knows and sees things as they really are. That is why we as humans can benefit from the truth that God imparts to us in His Word, the Bible. Atheists suffer in darkness, Christ followers have the light.

Things turned to the matter of abortion. The atheist brought up the worn out argument that it’s the woman’s choice. Not so, because you as a human were always you from conception. As such nobody has any right to interfere with the baby’s life from that point forward. Imagine, the womb is the most dangerous place to be in this world. More babies are aborted than soldiers on the battlefield. Without abortion, there would be half a billion Americans. In order to have a stable, future society, we need reproducing families. We cannot achieve this with homosexual couples, or with people who abort other Americans. Abortion is anti-American.

The atheist brought up the idea that “religion” is all about control, and that without religion we’d all be free. I reminded the atheist about his own religious beliefs, namely that he believes that nature is everything (which he accepts by faith because he can’t prove it). To me this smacked of the Communists endeavors some fifty-sixty years ago to liquidate religion in the former (and not-so-former such as North Korea) Communist countries. I told him that if we were to do away with all religion, we’d have to exterminate every single person on the planet, atheists included. Good show. How’s that for a self-goal.

And all I did was say that homosexuality was a sin…

Letter to Brett Kavanaugh – overturn Roe vs Wade

Dear Justice Brett Kavanaugh,

Congratulations on your being affirmed as the 114th Supreme Court justice of the United States of America. I find the smear campaign that the left launched against you absolutely appalling, detestable, and deplorable.

We are at a historic juncture in history. With a 5-4 majority of conservatives on the Supreme Court we now have the opportunity to make history. This does not bear repeating. We now have the opportunity to undo the present deep tide of liberalism which is destroying this country bit by bit. We have a golden opportunity in our very hands to save the lives of millions of unborn babies. It is time to stop the senseless killing.

Some people claim that we cannot legislate morality. But, the fact of the matter is that at present we do exactly that. If were not to legislate morality, then we would have to do away with all of the laws in the country. We would have to be antinomian. In that case literally, all hell would break loose.

During World War II the United States would have done anything to stop a war which cost the lives of millions of people. Yet the number of innocent babies slaughtered by abortion over the course of 44 years is greater than the number of American soldiers lost in the American Revolution, the war of 1812, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Korean war, the war in Vietnam, Gulf war I and Gulf War II combined. Roe vs Wade has made it more dangerous to be in the womb than on the battlefield.

Just imagine – without abortion, today there would be half a billion Americans instead of only 325 million.

When will the killing end? How much longer will this total depravity be allowed to continue? Roe vs Wade must be overturned!

God has put you in a special place to help stop this continuous, senseless killing. Remember the words of Scripture from Esther 4:13-14:

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

In these verses we read about Haman’s plot to destroy the Jewish people. Mordecai the Jew, the relative of queen Esther got wind of this plot and notified the queen. Esther, herself also a Jew was in a very special position to stop this evil conspiracy. She had the king’s ear and certainly could have interceded for her own people. Mordecai urges queen Esther to intercede for her people, since this is a one in a lifetime possibility to save her people from destruction. Note that Mordecai warns Esther that if she remains silent, God is powerful to save the Jews in any way He wants, but Esther and her house will perish.

Judge Kavanaugh – you are in the position of queen Esther. The situation cannot be more clear. With a majority vote the conservatives on the Supreme Court could vote to overturn Roe vs Wade and stop the killing. It is a golden opportunity, and a great responsibility. If you do not overturn Roe vs Wade think of what God will ask you, why you did not do so on Judgement day when you had the chance.

Do what is right. The Lord calls.

Remember the millions of aborted babies.

Stop the killing, and overturn Roe vs Wade.

God bless you,

Dr. Matthew Cserhati
