What is a Christian Atheist?
The words almost contradict each other, right? I mean how can someone be a Christian and an Atheist? But if you think about it, a lot of us are Christian Atheists because we believe in God but live as if He doesn't exist.
The reality is we can say we believe in God and Jesus but if we’re not reading His word, pursuing him and regularly attending Church Online, we may very well be living as a Christian Atheist.
The Bible says in Romans that once we have faith in Christ we are dead to sin and alive to God. So why would we want to keep sinning if we have faith in Christ, who ultimately conquered sin and death?
Check out what Paul says in Romans 6 below; "What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life." -Romans 6:1-4 ESV
For the next four weeks, Pastor Craig is going to be talking more about what it means to be a Christian Atheist and what we can do to make sure we are not living like one.
