Sky Fairies?

How many times have atheists discounted Christians for believing in a Sky Fairy or some similar derogatory remark.

I sometimes get annoyed by this, because I know that Christianity has a sound historical basis. What some folks do not realise is that there is greater evidence that an itinerant teacher called Jesus was crucified at Jerusalem in AD33 and rose again from the tomb than that Julius Caesar invded Britain, but nobody disputes Caesar’s invasion.

It was a joy to me to see an article in a publication called “American Thinker” which debunks much of the athiest nonsense. You can find that article at http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/03/the_historicity_of_the_resurrection_of_christ.html

We need to remember the words of Psalm 14, v 1
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
the next time an athiest complains that all our public holidays are based on Christianity and offer to join him in a campaign to have the only reasonable day in the year as an Athiest’s Public Holiday. I would go so far as to suggest April 1st.

About UK Fred

A Christian who cares that the church in Britain conforms to societal demands, rather than transforms society. I am particularly concerned with the lack of support for marriage and the acceptance of divorce in the church. I also care that the body politic in Britain seems to be corrupt and in need of a good shake-up.

    It is sad that people are so badly educated that they think “sky fairy” properly refects the Christian heritage our society was built on.

    They would not care to read or understand, say, St Augustine, and yet they are smart enough as to know there is nothing beyond themselves.

      Hi Christopher

      Sometimes a person has a problem grasping a concept that s/he has never experienced.

      What I hoped to do with this post was to remove barriers to belief in cases where people actually do want to believe in Jesus as God’s son, but genuinely have a problem in believing that He was a real person who walked on this earth.

      I have been accused of believing in a ‘sky fairy’ by a fairly articulate militant atheist on another discussion board. We need to be sure that we are ready for the attack from that direction when it comes.

      Like feminists who are happy to accept what men can do and have done for women, but then try to tell men that their rights are always trumped by a woman’s rights, those militant atheists want to have all the benefits that a civilisation based on Christian values provides without the Christian belief that is necessary to underpin the values.
