Richard Dawkins (Part 2)

Welcome to Apologetics with Carl Kerby!

Today, we’re talking about Richard Dawkins.

Richard Dawkins — who shows a religious fervor in promoting atheistic evolution — also shows an intense hostility to the Christian faith. 

If you have any doubt, Dawkins said, “I am often accused of expressing contempt and despising religious people. I don’t despise religious people, I despise what they stand for.”

In other words, it’s not believers he has a problem with so much as the MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL itself.  

This lines up exactly with Romans 8, where Paul said that the carnal mind “is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot” (ESV).

People like Dawkins hate God because they have sinful natures. Like all humans, they have a natural bent toward evil and rebellion against their Creator. It’s only when people’s wills are surrendered that their hearts can be changed by God’s grace.   

And what are other problems with Dawkins’s teachings? We’ll discuss them another time.
