Are Atheists and Agnostics Destroying The World?

I suppose I should be answering the comments on my own blog, but I like to read other blogs too. At The End of Ideology is a new blog, and it is quite interesting. Here we have a question: Are Atheists and Agnostics Destroying The World?

I think the answer is no. The Bible says that before we destroy it God will renew His creation.

Are Atheists and Agnostics the worst of the humankind? I don’t know. Even if we were wise enough to judge each other, such a label doesn’t tell us enough.

Do Atheists and Agnostics have any reason to be good? I think the answer is yes. In “Mere Christianity,” C. S. Lewis spoke of an inborn moral law. Lewis observed that each of us knows the difference between right and wrong.

The problem is finding the motivation to do what is right. Just the belief in God is not enough. Even the demons believe in God.

James 2:18-20 New King James Version (NKJV)

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

To do what is right we must love God. We show our love for God by loving each other. We learn to love when someone shows us their love. That is why can learn to love each other even before we realize how much God loves us.

How do “save” the world? We love our neighbors — each other — as we love ourselves.

At The End of Ideology

I recently appeared in a pre recorded episode of The Culture Monk Live where we discussed the effects of agnosticism on culture.  Particularly, did agnosticism destroy western culture?  Now, I’m not too sure if western culture has been destroyed. Many aspects of our society have certainly been relegated to the lowest common denominator.  The list is actually pretty long.  Reality TV, the decline in literature, and communication through 140 characters or less immediately come to mind, but there are many, many more problems.  Is this a sign that America is heading the way of Rome, or are these things just the hiccups of a society grappling with the problems post-modernity and advanced consumer technology?

If our society is crumbling before us, are atheists and agnostics to blame?

Has the existential way of life robbed us of the sacred beliefs that we need to create an ordered society?

When people argue…

    1. Lazy? Yes, and sloth is a sin.

      But what is liberty without wisdom, and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness, without tuition or restraint. — Edmund Burke

  1. Hi Tom,

    “The problem is finding the motivation to do what is right. Just the belief in God is not enough. Even the demons believe in God.”

    You said a mouthful and then some! It is just as you say… for many Christians and non believers alike there is no real push to do what is right in the sight of God. This can easily be understood in the life of person who does not believe in Christ nor is concerned about what is pleasing to God.

    However, for those of us who have trusted in Christ, it is so hard to understand how we cannot be concerned about His will for our lives. And yet sadly it is so. In many cases, I believe it is because the professing Christian has not truly accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior. In the other cases, I believe we have forgotten all He has done for us. Because we have forgotten all of His wonderful works of grace, we do not appreciate nor love Him as we should, and therefore, do not serve Him with our whole heart.

    It all gets back to loving the Lord as we should and placing Him first in our personal life, family life, church, and government.

    Thanks for, once again, pointoing out some of the great needs in our country! Lord bless you.
