No more seekers: Apatheists

After a couple of glasses of Merlot, someone asked him about his religion. He was about to say “atheist” when it dawned on him that this wasn’t quite accurate.
 
“I used to call myself an atheist,” he finally responded, “and I still don’t believe in God, but the larger truth is that it has been years since I really cared one way or another. I’m…”
 
(and this was when it hit him)
 
… “an apatheist!”
 
He’s not alone. Forty-three percent of unchurched Americans told LifeWay Research they don’t even wonder whether they will go to heaven. It’s just not on their minds.

Our culture is experiencing a hostile takeover. We must stop rejecting God if we ever want it to end | Fox News

American society used to be governed by Judeo-Christian do-unto-others morals. But we have drifted (been pushed, really) into a hedonistic YOLO (You Only Live Once) cultural morass.

“An Act of Pure Evil” – Searching for Meaning in Las Vegas – AlbertMohler.com

Evil is a fact, too. And evil is a theological category. The secular worldview cannot use the word with coherence or sense. The acknowledgement of evil requires the affirmation of a moral judgment and a moral reality above human judgment. If we are just accidental beings in an accidental universe, nothing can really be evil. Evil points to a necessary moral judgment made by a moral authority greater than we are — a transcendent and supernatural moral authority: God.

Previous research confirms that simply hearing a concept over and over again can make people interpret the familiarity as truth.So what’s the best way to combat untruths?Della Sala says it’s crucial to provide a set of facts that can combat the previous statements without restating the myths, or even mentioning them. “Saying ‘this is wrong’ or ‘this is false’ is not enough.”I don’t believe this is being grappled with—at least sufficiently—in regard to Christian apologetics. (Apologetics is a word used for all efforts to defend the gospel against attack, and to put forward arguments for its truth.)Think about the myths people believe about the Christian faith, such as how science contradicts the Bible, or that the Bible is full of errors, or that Jesus was married and had children. The list is endless.
