Today’s question. Amazing atheist says that Jesus is dangerous to America. Is it true?
Atheist Thomas Kirk runs a YouTube channel with the name Amazing Atheist. He says that Jesus is dangerous to America. Atheism is increasing in America.
Many people do not believe in the God of the Bible. Many people do not believe that God created human beings for a unique purpose. Many people do not believe in sin, let alone their sinful lives drag them to eternal hell. Many people do not believe in God centered public education or God centered politics.
As God and Jesus disappear and as belief systems change, eventually we will see the consequences of disbelief in God. Just take murders. Violent killings are skyrocketing all around America.
Take a look at the data gathered by the F.B.I for its annual report on crime. The year 2020 experienced the biggest rise in murder since the start of national record-keeping in 1960. The data shows almost 5,000 more murders last year than in 2019, for a total of around 21,500.
Think about that folks. 21,500 people were murdered in 2020, with 5000 more murders than the previous year.
God sanctified human life by creating it in His image.In the Bible, God says, thou shalt not kill. That’s the fifth commandment in 10 commandments. God considers murder as a very serious sin because human beings were created in the very image of God. The first murder in the world is when Cain killed his brother Abel out of jealousy and anger. God came down and asked for an account for the murder of Abel from Cain.
God is a God of law and of accountability. He is also a God of forgiveness. Jesus Christ our Lord said, love your enemies and pray for them. Imagine you are angry at someone and you thought of killing that person.
Then you remembered the words of Jesus. You were on your knees praying for that person. ‘Lord, help me to forgive this person. Help me to love this person. Give me strength not to hate this person’
Knowing Jesus and following his words to the letter is the best antidote to violence. More Jesus means more peace and less violence. Less Jesus means less peace and more violence.
So, Amazing atheist is wrong to assert that Jesus is dangerous to America. This guy would not last even one day if he lives in Pakistan or Egypt or Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia or any other Muslim nation. It is Christians who give you freedom to criticize God. So, the idea that getting rid of Jesus is beneficial to society is not a good idea.
We read in Psalm 2 11
Serve the Lord with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry
The psalmist says serve the Lord with fear. Serving the Lord with fear is a good thing.
Kiss the Son…. Kiss the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life. Because Jesus is the way, without him you are lost.
Because Jesus is the truth, without him you live a lie.
Because Jesus is life, without him you are dead. Let us pray for this atheist who does not know what he is talking about. Let us rejoice in Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior. The answer is Jesus is not dangerous to America. Leaving Jesus is dangerous. Having Jesus is a blessing.
