There are two conflicting worldviews that will ultimately shape your entire future: atheism and theism. Richard Dawkins, a famous atheist, describes atheism as “pessimistic” and the universe as “bleak, cold, and empty.” He ends his statement with, “But so what.” This type of thinking leads to an emotional death. The number one prescription drug in America is antidepressants because so many people are looking for hope but are surrounded by an ideology that tells them that there is no future, and nothing they do matters. When they do try to find meaning for their life, the atheistic response is, “so what.” In Christ, we know that there is a greater cause to live for.
