Just Let It Go

Not too long ago , a group promoting atheism posted the message "Imagine a World Without Religion" on a billboard in a community near where we live.

The outrage from Christians was immediate and intense. The billboard company removed the message within a week.

The entertaining part for me is the debate that has raged in the letters to the editor in my local paper. Christians blame atheists for this. Atheists blame Christians for that.

There are usually millions of deaths throughout history attributed to the other group.

The thing that really struck me was that both groups are talking past the other. Atheists don't seem to understand why believers believe and believers can't understand why atheists don't believe.

The only lesson I take from this is:

Protesting a billboard doesn't do much to further the Kingdom of God.
