In a recent op-ed piece for The American Christian, author Brian Beutler, a professor at the University of Notre Dame and author of “The Faith of the Atheist,” wrote that Christians can’t be atheists if they don’t believe in the existence of God.
He wrote: The Christian faith is not just a collection of beliefs but a collection and an act of faith in a greater purpose.
This great purpose, God, is the real and immutable foundation of Christianity.
The truth of the Bible is not contingent on the beliefs of believers.
And in any case, Christians who believe in God cannot be atheists.
They cannot be a “faithless” person, Beutlers comments.
But, he continued, “there are atheists who do believe in an ultimate God.”
Beuters essay comes amid growing concern that a growing number of Christian denominations, particularly those in the United States and Europe, are abandoning their faith.
Last week, the Catholic Church released a document entitled “Concerning the New Testament and the Question of the Trinity,” which it says clarifies its position on the Trinity.
In the document, Pope Francis and his fellow bishops state that the doctrine of the existence and indivisibility of God, along with the view that human beings are created in the image of God and thus are not predestined to exist, is “absolutely essential to the Christian faith.”
The document, which was issued last year, also states that “no doctrine, including the doctrine that God has a will or agency, can be legitimately taught without the doctrine and the affirmation of the indivisible God.”
“There is not a single Christian who does not believe that there are eternal truths and a loving God. “
This is simply wrong,” Beutlers opines.
“There is not a single Christian who does not believe that there are eternal truths and a loving God.
And if you do not believe this, you are not an atheist.
You are not even a Christian.”
“Atheism is an essential part of Christianity, even if it does not seem to be popular,” Beutslers conclusion concludes.
“And it is the essence of the faith of the Christian.”
He adds that “the idea that there can be a God who does things other than what we are taught is a theological absurdity.”
A representative for the American Atheists told The Christian Post in an email, “We think the document does not make sense, nor does the argument that some atheists have a special right to deny or deny-believe in something which is contrary to their belief in God.”
“As an atheist myself, I find the claim that there’s no such a thing as an atheist or that there could be such a God as absurd, and we’re going to fight for that right to remain the law of the land,” said Beutzer.
“In fact, I think it’s a good thing that the Bible has been updated and is a better source of information than any other text.”
The American Atheist’s website also recently launched a new website, “Athism.org,” which is dedicated to bringing awareness to atheists.
The website also includes a section on the “The Myth of the Supreme Being,” a popular theory that says that if God is not an actual being, then He must not exist.
The section includes information about the Bible, the history of Christianity and the modern atheist movement.
“What we do believe is that there exists a supreme being, a personal, personal God, and that His name is Jesus Christ,” said the American Council of Churches spokesperson, Scott Gagnon, in a statement.
“That being is the true, divine nature of the universe, the ultimate source of all things.
We have seen that there has been a lot of progress in our understanding of God over the last 100 years, but there is a lot more work to be done.”
Gagnons statement comes after The American College of Religion (ACR), a national association of Christian schools and religious organizations, released a statement in September saying that “A theism is a fundamental, fundamental belief, the only way to attain knowledge of God is through faith and the Bible.”
In a statement released by the group, ACR President Mike Witherspoon said that “religious organizations have a responsibility to encourage people to find out the truth about God.”
While ACR says that the American Humanist Association is not opposed to atheists, Withers statement notes that the group is not involved in the “religious liberty” debate and “has not been involved in discussions with these groups.”
“In the same breath, we are not opposed [to atheists], but we are concerned about their use of religious language, including when they assert that they have no reason to believe in any God,” Witherson told the Christian Post.
“When the language is used, it implies that there must
