The new Australian PM, Julia Gillard, has just declared that she is an atheist. She grew up in ‘church’ and came to believe that there is no God.
Strange how, in the debate, people are equating belief in God with religion: saying that it is a religious issue. If they were the same thing, then, truly, there would be no God, for God would just be the product of man’s thoughts. Jesus’ resurrection is an historical fact. Not an ideology.
And if they were the same thing then that would mean that one has to become religious or join a religion in order to know God. Which is a lie.
There is no true religion to join. There is only the physical historical resurrection of Jesus Christ : the living Man, who is God. Either joined to Him or not.
Pray ...for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 1 Timothy 2:2
LORD have mercy on Australia, and may your people be strong and do exploits, in Jesus name.
