The Atheist Test

The Atheist Test…

Charles Bradlaugh was a famous atheist in England. Hugh Price Hughes was a minister who served in the slums of London. Bradlaugh challenged Hughes to a debate on the validity of Christianity.

Hughes challenge was that each bring concrete evidences of our beliefs in the form of men and women who have been redeemed from sin and shame by the influence of our teaching. ‘I will bring 100 such men and women, and I challenge you to do the same.

If you cannot bring 100, bring 50 men and women. If you cannot bring 50, then bring 20 people who will say, as my 100 will, that they have a great joy in a life of self-respect as a result of your atheistic teachings. If you cannot bring 20, bring 10.

No, I challenge you to bring just one man or woman who will make such a testimony regarding the uplifting of your atheistic teachings.’ With great embarrassment, Bradlaugh withdrew his challenge.

You don’t have to get into a long involved argument – the testimony of God is your life. You don’t have to argue Jesus. Show them Jesus. Show them a changed life and they’ll see.

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:24

Today, let people see Jesus in you by the way you behave.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
