Agnostic vs Atheists....

Good Evening everyone.

I hope that as you are reading this, you are in good health and spirits. As with anything in which you are involved, you should be aware of those who may not agree with the things you agree.

Today, I wish to share with you the difference between an agnostic and an atheists.  Well you might be saying to yourself, "Aren't they the same?...neither believes in God? Right?".  We'll, you are right but there is a difference between the two.

An agnostic is "[o]ne who is skeptical about the existence of God but does not profess true atheism." Also, an agnostic is "[o]ne who is doubtful or noncommittal about something."  In essence, with this person, you have an opportunity to show them something about Christ, which could change their mind and help them understand that God does exist.  The mere fact that they are skeptical lends to the point that they aren't 100% sure in their thinking.

An atheist on the other hand is different. This is "someone who denies the existence of god" or "someone who refuses to believe", period.  No matter what you say to them or what evidence you have regarding the existence of God, their mind was been made up before you even approached them.

So, you have to know the type of person you are conversing with at all times when you have someone who is a non-believer.  We are suppose to go forward sharing the Gospel to all corners of the earth, but if you don't know your audience, you're already behind the eight ball.

Be easy fam and have a good one.
