In Matthew 27:20-21, the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to put Jesus to death. Pilate the governor said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release for you?” they said, “Barabbas.”

It is very easy to start a mob. Two or three people can get into the head of  a group of people and it will start to spread like a terminal disease. The people actually cheered to released a known criminal over the Son of God. That is not much different from what is happening in the world today. The atheist have brainwashed a mass of people to believe it is cool to have “no reason” to believe in the existence of God. The atheist in the past saw how dark and gloomy life was if there is no God and no eternal life. When they removed God from the picture, they saw how meaningless life truly was. It was the toughest decision they could ever make because of the understood the consequences. However, the new atheist find pleasure in tormenting people. Can you believe the new atheist have the audacity to call Christians brainwashed? The new atheist have their followers believing that their is joy in absolutely nothing. To them, the world is a dark and gloomy place; people are murdered, burned, mutilated everyday but as long as they have their pets, Starbucks and latest science magazine, there is joy in the world. My brothers and sisters, please keep a clear mind that is grounded in the world of God. Don’t be concerned with popular doctrine or worldviews. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
