Atheist Evangelism?

February 16, 2009,


In jolly old England, 800 buses now display the latest message from that country’s atheists. It is interesting that they did not declare that there is no God, but that there “probably” is no God. I just wonder how many commuters in London look up at that campaign slogan and are encouraged. In times of terror, fear, and lack of trust, what an empty message!

I read of a similar campaign planned for Australia’s bus service, but this one was turned down. What was the proposed slogan? “Atheism: Sleep in on Sunday Morning.”

Atheism is developing an evangelistic approach in these times? Seems rather unusual. How will followers of Christ respond to these efforts?
