Here’s an article from USA Today explaining a new trend among atheists, ‘de-baptism.’
‘Up until last summer, Jennifer Gray of Columbus, Ohio, considered herself “a weak Christian” whose baptism at age 11 in a Kentucky church came to mean less and less to her as she gradually lost faith in God.
‘Then the 32-year-old medical transcriptionist took a decisive step, one that previously hadn’t been available. She got “de-baptized.”
‘In a type of mock ceremony that’s now been performed in at least four states, a robed “priest” used a hairdryer marked “reason” in an apparent bid to blow away the waters of baptism once and for all. Several dozen participants then fed on a “de-sacrament” (crackers with peanut butter) and received certificates assuring they had “freely renounced a previous mistake, and accepted Reason over Superstition.”‘
If this article says anything, it says this. No one is dispassionate towards Godâ€”not even atheists. Jesus said it best: “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other” (Matthew 6:24). That is why some atheists are not content simply to disbelieve but feel like they must scoff at those who do. Proverbs 19:3 applies as much to the atheist as to anyone else: “The foolishness of man ruins his way, And his heart rages against the LORD.”
The good news is that the Lord’s arm is not too short to save (Isaiah 59:1). He is able to bring to repentance the most hardened of sinners. I am living proof of that.
