Mohler on the New Atheism

It is becoming more and more evident that the walls of "Christendom" are coming down. Indeed, they are already gone in Western Europe, and we are following suit. In many ways, this is good and the Lord can use the cultural changes to purify his church.

Recently, Dr. Mohler gave some very enlightening lectures on "the new atheism" mainly focusing on the work of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett, and Sam Harris, whose books have sold like mad in the last few years. Here they are:

Lecture One: The New Atheism and the Endgame of Secularism
Lecture Two: The New Atheism and the Assault on Theism
Lecture Three: The New Atheism and the Defense of Theism
Lecture Four: The New Atheism and the Future of Christianity

They can be accessed here. One (of many) notes of interest is the fact that both Hitchens and Dawkins turned from their Christian upbringing early on. I think this is often the case. Kids grow up watching their "Christian" parents deny the gospel by their lives on a daily basis, and walk away from the faith as soon as they leave home. Moral of the story: Parents (and all believers) must model genuine Christian lives.
