I have it on good authority that atheists succumb to background demon activity whenever they open the Bible.
That’s right…background demon activity. You read that right.
If you’d like to learn more about this awesome phenomenon, you can visit this article or you can see some excerpts below.
For an atheist, to deny everything there is to deny about the God of the Bible, merely means that he or she is acting under the authority of the free will they have as human beings. No-one can deny anyone their right to choose the direction they wish or prefer to follow.
Okay. I’m with you so far…sort of. I have free will. I’m down with that, I guess.
No, I don’t ‘deny’ the God of the Bible; I just see no evidence to back up the assertion. My honest conclusion so far is that the Bible was written by men at a time when the wheelbarrow was considered emerging technology. It’s full of contradictions and it makes no logical sense to me. I’m not denying this God exists, I merely don’t believe that it does for a host of reasons.
For instance, Darwin did not force anyone to believe his theories and neither did any other iconic philosopher or scientist. An atheist – or anyone for that matter – has the undeniable right to apply the authority they have to intellectually stamp it on matter presented to them. And whether or not this is considered to be intellectual suicide, the fact remains that they are acting under the authority inextricably vested in them.
Darwin didn’t have to force anything because he had evidence. Since Darwin, the theory of evolution has only gotten stronger because more evidence is added to the pile all the time.
If science is intellectual suicide, why not head out to the wilderness and pray for relief?
On the other hand, should they have been wrong about their unbelief in a creator God and find themselves where this God says they will find themselves – then it does not matter either. They will simply be where the authority of their free wills has taken them – which will not be a pleasant place at all.
Ah, here it is - the veiled threats that Christianity seems to rely on. If you don’t believe as we do, then you will be tormented by our all-loving God after you die. It’s just one of the many logical gaps I mentioned earlier.
It’s also the much-used and debunked Pascal’s Wager.
It’s kind of ironic because my partner informed me this morning that her kids told her that their Catholic School now says that atheists can reach heaven, as long as they’ve lived good, sin-free lives.
That was a load off my mind, let me tell you. *wipes brow*
The author then goes on to explain that we’re living in a period of Grace, which will all come crashing to an end at some point in the near future. By golly, all the signs are there and laid out in the Bible.
But then we have this glow-y gem of wisdom:
Unfortunately, for an atheist to open a Bible and start reading attentively is like throwing a cat into a swimming pool. That cat wants to get out of there like it has wings. What atheists do not understand about this is that it is not their own personal desire to “escape” from the Book, but it is the spiritual entity that has them under control that wants to flee from it.
As far-fetched as this may sound to an atheist, to him the background demon activity would be inaudible, but it is likely to be something like, “Oh no! He is about to open the Bible. Let’s get him out of there before we lose him. Quick, let’s fill his mind with unbelief, revulsion and blasphemous thoughts so that he throws that Book down like a handful of burning coals.”
And so the atheist succumbs to the mental attack, thinking that, once again, his authority as a free moral agent has saved the day. Yes, I am saying that the atheist does not have a mind of his own. “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2
It seems to contradict the premise of free will, doesn’t it?
If I’m under the influence of a demon, where is my free will? If I don’t have a mind of my own, where has my free will gone?
Furthermore, I’ve read the bible a number of times and I never felt like a cat being thrown into water. I’ve never felt as if there were demon background noise going on, either.
I definitely have a mind of my own, which is partially why I realized that the religion I grew up in had some serious flaws.
