God and the Bible are binding on all domains

First of all the Bible itself must be taught. If the Bible is what it says it is then knowledge of it is essential to life. The Bible undergirds the civilization we live in; it is the main spring of every facet of our culture….If the Bible is not central to education, to everyday life, [19th century atheist Max] Stirner’s logic [that consistent atheism requires one to disbelieve in the validity of any law] prevails.

The Bible, for us thus must be a part of the curriculum and we dare not teach it as [just] a devotional book or an inspiring book – it is an inspired book, it is not [just] inspiring.

What it tells us about our sin – it’s painful. What it tells us of the things we have left undone, we can think of better reading. When it gives us a catalog of sins that describe human nature, it can be very depressing reading. But it is God’s command word. It is his command word as us as individuals, as families, as churches, as schools. Also as workmen, as citizens.

The Bible is as binding upon the state as it is the church. God does not say the church is mine but the school and civil government and science and art and the vocations are secular, outside my province. Not so. All things are to be governed by the Lord, by his sovereign word. We must teach the Bible therefore as God’s command word.

Games played by atheists: the omnipotence paradox

You might be a fundamentalist atheist if:

6. You think questions like, “Can God create a rock so big that He cannot lift it?” and, “Can God will Himself out of existence?” are perfect examples of how to disprove God’s omnipotence and ultimately how to disprove God. When someone proves to you the false logic behind the questions (i.e. pitting God’s omnipotence against itself), you desperately try to defend the questions, but then give up and go to a different Christian site to ask them.

When atheists forget about their hypocrisy

You might be a fundamentalist atheist if:

137. You assert that there is no absolute categories of good and evil, that all morals are merely personal, social and evolutionary constructs but then you can still describe Christians and Christianity as absolutely immoral, repugnant and evil and a danger to humanity and not feel even a twinge of hypocrisy at the monumental illogic of your position.

God doesn’t exist because of one guy’s experience?

This highlight was stored on my Kindle (but the original page now looks to be deleted):

I’ve been cruising this planet for over 60 years. IF God existed he would know what sort of evidence would convince me of his existence… if he wanted me to know it ;) So far? Nothing; nada; zilch.” I suppose HE either doesn’t care about ME in any way whatsoever… OR God is imaginary…

I’m going with the latter. I’m 100% certain god is imaginary. If he really existed he would have found a way to convince me he exists. Obviously he hasn’t cos just as obviously he doesn’t.

While that sounded like an argument from silence, let’s move beyond the hunt-for-logical-fallacies approach, and note this as well:

You might be a fundamentalist atheist if:

10. You consistently deny the existence of God because you personally have never seen him but you reject out of hand personal testimony from theists who claim to have experienced God as a reality in their lives.

Atheists’ inconsistency on evolution and abortion

You might be a fundamentalist atheist if:

44. When the Pope says that God may have used evolution, he is an enlightened religious leader whom Christians should listen to. When the Pope preaches on the sanctity of human life from conception, and thus denounces abortion, he’s just a senile religious bigot who should keep his opinions to himself.

Atheists and their fundamental inconsistencies

You Might be a fundamentalist atheist if:

136. You assert that the crimes and failings of some Christians (acting inconsistently with the teachings of Christ at that!) disproves the whole edifice of Christianity but that the crimes and failings of some atheists (acting consistently with the fact that atheism can provide no basis for objective morality!) should on no account be held against the philosophy of atheism.
