Atheist Ricky Gervais – A Better Christian than Christians?
Are atheists better Christians than Christians are today? Famous comedian and English actor Ricky Gervais likes to think so.

Posting a holiday message for Easter entitled “Why I’m A Good Christian” in The Wall Street Journal, Gervais, a professing atheist, revealed that he is a “good Christian” compared to a lot of Christians.

To prove his point, he outlined the Ten Commandments and analyzed how he faired against each law. Giving himself a 10 out of 10 – passing all counts of murder, idolatry, and blasphemy – Gervais considered his perfect score “not bad for an atheist.” ...

Thank you for posting back to me. I apologize for just now replying I have been traveling.

www.youtube.com has a wonderful brief clip taken from Paris Reidhead's message 'So Great Salvaion' that is titled: "Come And He Will Set You Free" I believe would be a blessing to you as well.

For any atheist to believe that they are a Christian is nuts. A Christian is someone who follows Christ.

However we are undone, men of unclean lips.
How can the Church share the Gospel with others when it knows not the Good News itself?
The same way that Isaiah was made profitable, a burning coal off the altar.

If the Scripture is crystal-clear to any reader, then why the divorce and remarriage scandal in the Church?
Might I suggest, it is one, of many of the fruits of a broken Covenant. The apostasy and backsliding we see on every side are the symptoms and not the disease. If there are none more culpable then the Gospel Ministry for they deal with eternal souls and not bodies only, then I suggest that is where this must begin to be addressed, personally and as a moral person. Next the Congregations of the best Reformed Churches,in like manner. Then a reflective Civil Magistrate as to the reasons perfidity towards God leads to usurpation of their right to rule among a praying people, who help to keep the lid on, 'so to speak', the rebellious ilk.

Now, we can wipe the tear away from our eye to see clearly the poor pained individual households who have suffered almost to the extinction of the next generations of the godly.

Rev. 12:14-17

It is interesting that even atheists, philosophers, infidels and let's not forget members of the horribly wrong RCC can still observe some things very accurately sometimes more accurately than typical church going people today, even then their pastors.
We ought to weep and repent.
Btw have you listen to 10 Shekels and a Shirt by Paris Reidhead, if you haven't you ought to.
Weep and repent indeed.

Perhaps the Reformers' doctrine, the "Perspicuity of Scripture," is an exaggeration.

When it comes to Christian marriage, divorce and remarriage could there be any more confusion and controversy?

Who will settle this debate? Atheists? The civil magistrate? Or perhaps another war as was required to end the Evangelical slavery debate?

If the Scripture is crystal-clear to any reader, then why the divorce and remarriage scandal in the Church?

The problem with Gervais and other atheists is that they would not know a real Christian from a giraffe.

Gervais and others think for example that Anglicans and Roman Catholics are quote, "Christians."

Satan has set up shop in the business of flogging religion so that he can taint the term Christian and deceive the people. He also puts non-Christians into the churches to get the counterfeit effect.

What many reprobates see and identify as Christian is Satan's fictitious religious actors to add to the confusion.

2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; BY REASON OF WHOM THE WAY OF TRUTH shall be evil SPOKEN of.

Agreeing with Gandhi’s words – “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians” – Gervais admitted that he too held this opinion of Christianity even when he used to believe in God as a child.
Perhaps he has a point: Christian marriage is the earthly symbol of Christ's infinite love for His bride, the Church.
However, with a reported 50% divorce rate, even in the Church, what's our message to the unbelieving and dying world?:
(A.) Our marriages are no better than yours.
(B.) Our marriages are destroyed just like yours.
(C.) Our Christ has failed us.
God forbid this!
