practicing chrisian atheism

Great article from Miguel De La Torre on ethics daily.

The Christians of the first century were thrown to the lions on the charge of atheism, because they rejected the god of the dominant culture of their time.

What Christianity needs today is more of this kind of “atheists”--those willing to lose their life or livelihood for refusing to believe the god of today’s powers and principalities.

Hence the real question for us “atheists” to ask is not if God exists, but who is this God whose existence we affirm or deny.

It is my contention that some gods are better off dead than alive.

A good discussion of the obligation of Christianity to be contrary to the culture, even the prevailing "christian" culture if necessary.

Go figure, linking to the Baptist Center for Ethics. Not sure how this one slipped through.
