There is a global resurgence of secularism in both Eastern
and Western cultures. Atheists are are actively spreading
their worldview like never before. They organize conferences,
fund bus advertising campaigns, record podcasts, participate
in debates, and write best-selling books to spread their ‘gospel’.
Christians must respond in turn, but we must also reach out
personally to build relationships and engage in conversation.
Now is not the time to retreat, but to connect. Sure, some are hostile to
Christianity, but many are not. If we each lovingly reach out to skeptical groups,
we might be amazed at how many are receptive to the gospel.
