Found a wonderful Christian blog to add to my growing “follow” list here at Talk Wisdom. The name of the blog is Historical Jesus Studies.
The first post that I read at the site was:
It is difficult to cite just one of the 44 atheists on that list who have written about their conversions to Christianity. However, one stood out to me today so that is the one that I will excerpt below.
Our current aberrant, lie filled, sexually immoral, anti-Christian culture is the result of decades worth of indoctrination in our public schools, secular colleges and universities. The hard-core, rabidly anti-God professors that dominate these institutions are busy brain-dirtying students in the most egregious ways! Prestigious universities have become breeding grounds of anti-God, anti-Bible, and anti-Christian thought. It isn’t enough for them to disagree with the religious freedoms that we are (supposed) to enjoy as a Constitutional Republic, but they are busy doing all that they can to egregiously stomp out such freedoms!
The New Totalitarians label themselves as “liberals,” “progressives,” “leftists,” etc.; and also proclaim their ideology to the world via political activism, leftist propaganda on the news, progressivism in social media, and of course, the most totalitarian-oriented mindset of the anything-goes Hollyweird crowd. The result of such pressure being pushed into the minds of young people in this way is proof that the goal of the new Totalitarians is to wrongly proclaim that the things of the world that are evil as “good,” and the things of God that are good as “evil.”
Isaiah 5:20-24 speaks of this plainly; with sharp words of warning to those who engage is such wickedness:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!
Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,
Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!
Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble,
And the flame consumes the chaff,
So their root will be as rottenness,
And their blossom will ascend like dust;
Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts,
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
The young people who have escaped such indoctrination are usually those who have either been educated via home-schooling, Christian schools, or charter schools which do not engage in the social engineering that is being hammered into the minds of students who do not know the written of Word of God – the Bible and do not know the Living Word – Jesus Christ.
I think that Peter Hitchens’ quote below speaks volumes regarding the ongoing battle between good and evil that continues to rage here in America.
Peter is a widely know English journalist and author. He has published six books, including The Abolition of Britain, The Rage Against God and The War We Never Fought. He also writes for Britain’s The Mail on Sunday newspaper and is a former foreign correspondent in Moscow and Washington. In his book The Rage Against God: How Atheism Led Me to Faith he tells us of his conversion from militant atheist to Christian theism.
- “I thought this gesture [burning his Bible] was a way of showing that I had finally rejected all the things that I had been brought up to believe, and I went on to behave for the next 20 years of my life exactly as if I didn’t believe in him [God], and that’s how I discovered in the end that what I had rejected was right.”
- “The current intellectual assault on God in Europe and North America is in fact a specific attack on Christianity – the faith that stubbornly persists in the morality, laws, and government of the major Western countries. . . .The God they fight is the Christian God, because he is their own God. . . .God is the leftists’ chief rival. Christian belief, by subjecting all men to divine authority and by asserting in the words ‘My kingdom is not of this world’ that the ideal society does not exist in this life, is the most coherent and potent obstacle to secular utopianism. . . . the Bible angers and frustrates those who believe that the pursuit of a perfect society justifies the quest for absolute power.”
- “…when it comes to the millions of small and tedious good deeds that are needed for a society to function with charity, honesty, and kindness, a shortage of believing Christians will lead to that society’s decay.”
-Peter Hitchens (‘The Rage Against God: How Atheism Led Me to Faith.’)

It is nice to know that these 44 atheists have now seen the light of Christ and have escaped from the secular humanistic prison that once held them in a tight grip of despair. I pray that many more will seek Jesus Christ and escape satan’s stronghold of sin and evil which wreaks havoc upon their lives.
The LORD is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.
