-Did Dawkins’ Book ‘God Delusion’ Actually Lead Many to God?

English: Richard Dawkins giving a lecture base...

                                    (Richard Dawkins: Wikipedia)

Did Richard Dawkins’ book- ‘The God Delusion’ actually end up leading many to find God? That‘s what one minister in the UK claims.

From the Christian Post:

"Richard Dawkins has done us a big favor," said the Rev David Robertson, a minister from the Free Church of Scotland, …

"A book about God and the Bible has become a bestseller and as a result has opened up a discussion that many people thought was over."   …

"I actually know of people who have been converted through reading ‘The God Delusion’ and interacting with the discussion. Dawkins has opened the door. We now have to walk through it."

More Than 100,000 Britons Want to be ‘De-baptized’

image Over 100,000 Britons have downloaded a ‘Certificate of Debaptism’ from the National Secular Society (NSS) in the UK to publicly demonstrate their separation from Christianity. The majority were baptized into the Church of England as infants and now as adults have decided to reject the church.

According to the article, similar movements are spreading to other countries, including a well organized move against Catholicism in Argentina.

Response: This is a rather sad development. A generation ago most Britons were baptized into the state church as infants. Now as the secular and the atheist movements gain numbers and cultural credibility many adults are seeking to ‘divorce’ themselves from their former ‘Christian’ identity.

Actually this is really not all bad. It is far better to be either hot or cold. After all, the declining British ‘cultural Christian’ identity has lately produced a weak church. It is actually harder in many ways to bring ‘Cultural Christians’ to Jesus than any other religion. Their ‘luke-warm’ version of Christianity actually inoculates them from seeking the real McCoy.

One good sign, the Charismatic and Pentecostal churches are growing significantly in the UK. Also, those who now identify themselves as Christians in the UK are far more likely to be seriously committed.            *Top
