Here’s How Atheists Are Targeting Inmates in Quest to Battle the Bible in American Prisons

A secular group is implementing a coordinated plan to regularly send atheist literature to inmates in American prisons — a quest its members claim will counter the faith-based messages that are often touted by chaplains and faith leaders.

The Center for Inquiry, a humanist advocacy group, first made its intentions known in December.

Since announcing the Freethought Books Project, atheist authors have been donating books to the organization and publishers have been pitching in — all in an effort to balance the theological messages being delivered to inmates. ...

Chris, all who aren't Christian end up horribly, an eternity in hell. Atheists are something like those who commit suicide, unfortunately, Muhammadans are like suicide bombers --in more ways than one-- and try to take as many with them before killing themselves, Islam: The Religion of Peace.

Atheism, i.e. rejection of God, is based on ignorance at best. Ignorance teaches what it thinks it knows, but unfortunately atheists are too proud to recognize how ignorant they are.

It's all about the line of thought; Atheism, as a philosophy, automatically begets humanism, which as a rule teaches that one should use reason for self realization; this realization would lead to the assumption that, if this life is it, you should make the most if it for yourself. Hence, it matters not about others; do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.

I would definitely agree with that statement Chris. The sad fact is people default to evil; that is their sin nature popping out... One of the major impediments to the Gospel is mans predilection to justify himself and make excuses for what he has done. However, I would maintain that false doctrine makes it easier because it adds the element of spirituality... No one wants to be a fool "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." (Psalm 14:1)

What "hope" will these atheists offer the lawbreaker? After all, atheism teaches them there are no moral absolutes, rather than an absolute moral Lawgiver who will punish sin. Thus they will believe their only crime was getting caught, and will go on to do "what is right in their own eyes" when they get out.

Right Jim! You know when I see articles like this, articles about athiests spending their time, effort, and money to erase god, I lose sight of the fact that whether one is an athiest, a Mormon, or a Muslim, etc, none of them end well and they all spend eternity together within the same gathering place. One is not any more well off than the other. No God, false god...doesn't matter...

I think you had better worry more about the Islamists. A fair chunk of this article references the U.S. http://www.examiner.com/article/muslims-force-british-prison-inmates-to-convert-to-islam

Thanks for the input, Steven. "Jailhouse Religion". Interesting, and everything you said makes sense.

It is true that in the initial lockup inmates tend to be repentant and receptive; often short lived (Jailhouse religion) Please understand that The Holy Spirit can work at any time, but at the vulnerable time of their first interment they are most receptive. Like Esau, however many repent to tears, and not to Christ; and like Judas many repent to Works, and not Christ. Some fall away to false doctrine, and others move to other religions... Often though, they begin to harden their hearts after the initial scare, and at that point it is a sham; religion is a way to get favors, (lot of requests to talk to parole boards) or to rebel (most Islam converts) so at this point, going back to the initial comment, yes; the idea of atheism will be a novelty idea to get some reading material.

Satan and his secular/atheist work force are not going to achieve anything which God is not going to allow anyway.
Satan does what is natural to him which is evil, not to achieve anything more than doing evil the opposite of God.

If God wants to reach a person whether in prison or in free society He will and nothing the atheists do will make any difference.
Mat 9:13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Ro 9:18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. 19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

The last paragraph got cut off but you get the point. I just think the athiests are barking up a fruitless tree.

Hi Steven, I'm glad you posted before I got the chance because I would be interested in your opinion.
What I was going to say after reading the article is that, know matter how well the Athiests claim the program is going, I would think that prison would be the worst and least effective place for Athiests to gain any ground. When it comes to the heavier, and even life sentences, people have hit their lowest point in life; they are at the bottom of the barrel with no place to go...mentally drained, no hope, lifeless, ,exhausted. To me, I would think that they are in the best positions of their lives to do some honest soul searching and hopefully get to a point in which Christ can finally get through to them. Now, I know that the prisons are infested with Islam on one side and Roman Catholocism on the other, but those are the people who have chosen to remain lost instead of allowing the bible to speak to them and activate their spirits with the sound of truth. I'm speaking to the rest, the ones in the middle because what better position for one to be in to hear the voice of Christs call when a person is so down and out, afraid, feeling empty, lifeless, and worthless. I would think there are many genuine conversions within a prison setting as opposed the down and out turning t

I suspect most inmates already know what the consequences are of living a Godless life and will reject it,the atheist offer hopelessness,inmates already have enough of that to.

I have been involved in the prison ministry for 18 years, and to be honest, I expected this long ago... but at this point it seems almost a wasted effort for Satan; he already has a serious inroad with false doctrines and Islam... To re-add humanism to the mix seems a waste of time.
