Jesus loves Atheists, and so do I

I visited an Atheist site.

I told them I was a Jesus follower.

And that I wanted to learn about how they think and approach life as Atheists.

Some were respectful and kind to me.

One woman wrote a beautiful description of being one with the universe as she watched the night sky, because she was formed by the universe and composed of what stars had made.

However, most attacked me.  I think they were using me as a proxy for a Christian they really wanted to vent at.

One person told me that many members of the site had been hurt by Christians and that is why they became Atheists.

Many of the group that I engaged with struck me as hurt, scared and alone.

I honored my agreement with them and did not preach Jesus.

I did not point out to them that the hole in their soul they were trying to fill was made to be filled by Jesus and Jesus alone.  That nothing else would work.

I did not point out to them that anyone can claim to be a Christian, but it is in acting the way Jesus acted that proves whether their claim to be a Christian is true or not.  Then they would know not to blame Jesus for the evil done to them by someone falsely claiming Jesus’ identity.

I did not point out to them that their highest rule – Treat others the way you want to be treated – pointed to their own yearning for Jesus that they did not realize yet.

I wish I had the chance to share Jesus’ love with them, so they would know that Jesus is on their side, that He loves them just the way they are, and that He wants to take them home.
