Are We Christian Atheists?

“Love keeps no record of wrong. Bitterness keeps a detailed record.” (From the Christian Atheist by Craig Groeschel)

The Christian Atheist is a book about people who claim to believe in God but live as if they don’t. If we are flying by the seat of our emotions, being critical of others in a demeaning and derogatory way (including our President Obama…ouch!), can we truly claim we are being sourced by the Spirit of God?

There is a vast difference between being judgmental toward a person and being discerning about his or her ways. We must be discerning, but at the final judgment, neither you nor I will be wearing the robe.

“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” ~ Colossians 4.6

But this is for Christians…not those who do not claim to have a relationship with God. If it’s not by our actions and the words we speak, how can others know where our allegiance belongs? How will people know how grateful we are for the amazing grace of God in our lives if we’re not living as “Christian” Christians?

Are we who we claim to be? Or are we Christian atheists? I think it’s a question we must be prepared to answer.
