Last week On my friend Paul Edwards' radio program in Detroit, his guest was noted Christian Apologist Ravi Zacharias. I have an incredibly deep respect for Dr. Zacharias and his constant defense of the Christian Faith, not merely as a religion, but as the truth based in the faith given by God as our means of salvation. The first analogy that Paul gives in the interview has to do with watching a show that revealed the secrets of some of the great illusions of the master magicians and that in order for them to succeed, the magician must hide certain elements of the illusion. It is the same thing that the New Atheism is attempting to do with a flood of new books railing against God and against Christians,such as “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins, “God Is Not Great” by Christopher Hitchens, and “Letter To A Christian Nation” by Sam Harris. Dr Zacharias particularly addresses Sam Harris book in his new book “The End Of Reason.” He shows that these atheistic apologists are just like a master magician in how they frame their arguments and that when we understand the underpinnings and purposeful omissions in their arguments, we can see that they are very weak at best.
I highly recommend Dr. Zacharias website and ministry to you. Here is the link:

These New Atheists are men the are to be pitied. Romans 1:17-19 reveals the difference between the just and those “who hold the truth in unrighteousness”
“17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
“And such were some of you…” (I Corinthians 6:11). We must consider that outside of the magnificent Grace of God, we would be in the same boat. We must always contend for the Faith, but we must always do it in a spirit of humility. Nevertheless, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS stand for the truth of the Glory of God's Name, and never cower in a corner when confronted for your faith. Take care and God bless!
