Dawkins: Dangerous Islam and Toothless Christianity.
In an interview on New Zealand TV program The Nation, 3 October 2015, Richard Dawkins was asked why he was so critical of Islam. He replied, “Well, Islam is the only religion that’s at the moment positively dangerous”. He then went on to say, “I mean, if you’d asked me that question 500 years ago, I’d have said Christianity, but Christianity’s teeth have been drawn, comparatively speaking, today”.
Editorial Comment: Why have some Christian churches had their teeth drawn, and been rendered dead and ineffective in spreading the gospel? Almost always because they have not stood firm on the truth of God’s word from Genesis to Revelation, but have conformed to the world, morally, politically or pseudo-scientifically.
However, Dawkins (and all of us) should take warning from the passage in the Bible that contains this statement: “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account”. (Hebrews 4:12-13) (Ref. quote, sceptics, atheists)
