Can an Atheist experience a Changed Life?


RAY: This is an outside link that I think is very interesting. Alister McGrath in the video explains his decision to change from Atheism toward a belief in the God of the Bible as his worldview. He does not seem to have believed the Bible 100% however in that he still hangs on to some Evolution ideas. God does not require that we know everything first before coming to Him. Each of us is on a journey. But the Journey begins for the Christian when they trust Christ as their source of truth in their lives.

A prominent atheist blogger says she has converted to Christianity.

Leah Libresco made the announcement on Monday on her Patheos blog, “Unequally Yoked.” The blog post, titled “This is my last post for the Patheos Atheist Portal,” details how Libresco came to her decision.
——————————————————————————–
She said she struggled with moral law, exploring where it comes from and what’s behind it. As an atheist, she states that friends told her that her philosophy was unsustainable.

“I was ready to admit that there were parts of Christianity and Catholicism that seemed like a pretty good match for the bits of my moral system that I was most sure of, while meanwhile my own philosophy was pretty kludged together and not particularly satisfactory,” she wrote.

She goes back to the night before Palm Sunday, where after a debate on religion she then had a discussion with a friend about morality.

After a back-and-forth where her friend asked her to make an argument about where moral law comes from, she couldn’t think of any. She then realized that it had to come from something like a person or being.

“I believed that the Moral Law wasn’t just a Platonic truth, abstract and distant. It turns out I actually believed it was some kind of Person, as well as Truth. And there was one religion that seemed like the most promising way to reach back to that living Truth,” she writes.

C.S. Lewis was a famous Atheist who changed to Christ
Another very famous Atheist that changed over to becoming a Christ follower was C.S.Lewis. I hope to invite the past president of the C.S. Lewis society of Toronto also past president of ministry called “the Shantymen”. Dr. Arthur Dixon to come and join us on an upcomming show to talk about the things that attract a person away from the Atheistic world view to the Christian world view. I would also like to ask Arthur about his experience in inner city mission work and in his various ministries that he has been involved in, including his current itinerant Pastor Ministry among the Christian Brethren of Ontario (Also called the Plymouth Brethren).

In the meantime if you turned from Atheism to Christ we would like to hear from you. Please add your comments to this topic and let us know what you experienced in switching over your worldview.

  1. Hello there, I discovered your blog via Google at the same time as looking for a comparable subject, your site came up, it appears good. I’ve bookmarked to my favourites|added to bookmarks.

  2. I got this site from my buddy who shared with me on the
    topic of this web site and at the moment this time I am browsing this site and reading very
    informative content at this place.

    • Thank you for your interest. We have been flying on a low budget and we’ve had some things in our lives interfere with the regularity of the program. But we are excited. We hope to improve some things in June. We have found a good 1080p Vidcam that does not stop every 11 minutes like our Canon 5d Mark II and Canon G1X did. (Sony VG30 for those interested). And we are about to go with a device called a VIDIU so we can livestream to USTREAM. This will allow us to finally put our show up live. We are also planning to use Google Hangouts to invite guests to join us over the internet. Hopefully our program will be more interesting and we will find more time to add content. We value persons like you to join us and comment from time to time at the website.
