Atheist Missions

There are tens of thousands of Christian missions around the world that feed the homeless and take care of the poor. So I wondered how many atheist missions I could find on the Internet. I typed in “Atheist Missions,” and guess how many came up? Zip. I tried the search words “atheists feed the poor.” None. “Atheists helping the homeless.” No results. I got more results from typing in “Hen’s teeth.” So, if the economy turns sour and leaves you homeless, thank God that there are Christian missions out there that will feed you, clothe you, and give you and your children somewhere to sleep. If you find yourself in a disaster, thank God for the Salvation Army, or the Red Cross, or if you are taken to a hospital because of a serious illness, you may end up in a Saint John’s, a Saint Jude’s, or some other hospital whose name reminds us of its roots.

One more thought. If you find yourself in a lifeboat with no food and a group of very hungry people who are checking you out for lunch (it has happened), who would you rather be sharing the lifeboat with: a group of starving evolutionists who believe in “survival of the fittest” and have no moral absolutes, or a group of Christians who love their neighbor as themselves and fear God?

Deuteronomy 15:11 For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.’

    To be fair, there are many secular charities (not anti-religious or atheistic, but humanitarian and non-denominational). For example, in Australia we have Dr Barnardos and the Smith Family

    Atheist actually do a considerable amount of humanitarian work. You just don’t hear about it because they don’t convert them to Christians afterwords.
