Do Christians believe that Atheists worship devils?

And other strange thoughts...

A reader asked me:

"Do you think that Christians believe that Atheists worship devils?"

I'm not sure exactly why this question was sent my way, but I found it interesting and decided to answer it.

I am a Christian and I thought atheist meant they did not believe in worshiping anything. I could be wrong, as I don't know any atheists in my personal life, but my impression was always that they did not believe in any theology, religion, or deity at all and therefore worshipped nothing.

Then again, most Christian I know in my personal life are of the opinion that I worship the devil and/or Satan, simply because I am not the same religion as they are, which confuses me, but whatever.

"If all the evidence in the universe turns against creationism, I would be the first to admit it, but I would still be a creationist because that is what the Word of God seems to indicate." ~Kurt Wise, Ph.D

I was raised in a multi-religion family, that included several LDS/Mormons, a SDA, a Calvinist, a Methodist, some Holy Rollers/Pentecostals, a Baptist,  a Voodoo/Voduist, and a couple of non-affiliated pagans. Growing up, I attended church/worship services at each of the above religions, today 40 years later, I believe in a blended mixture of all of the above, I no longer attend any church building and instead have set up a private meditation garden in my backyard where I simple worship on my own. (Because I got disgusted with the hypocrisy of the way all the churches taught to "love thy neighbor" while at the same time preaching condemnation of anyone not of their congregation.)

The end result is local Christians call me a "witch" and see me as "too liberal", "too accepting", "too pagan", "too accepting of gay rights", "too accepting on non-Christians", and "too satanic" to be a "true Christian".

Or to quote one local LDS/Mormon Bishop, I'm "a cape wearing gay loving loony toon who should be shunned."

While on the other hand, local pagans, witches, and wiccans say I am "too Christian" to be one of them either.

Several people refer to me as a ChristoPagan. 

Since it is obviously inconceivable that all religions can be right, the most reasonable conclusion is that they are all wrong. ~Christopher Hitchens

So, perhaps, I don't fit the standard definition of the modern "Christian". I don't specifically belong to any religion. When I say I am Christian, what I mean is, I believe in following the words of Christ when he said "Love thy neighbor" and "do unto others as you would have others do unto you" and "turn the other cheek". Whether he was god or not, Jesus' teachings were good and noble and I have never encountered a Christian who actual practiced the teachings of Jesus.

I believe that any "Christian" who condemn anyone for any belief, is not a true Christian, because Jesus condemned no one, and to be a Christian, means you do what Jesus did. I don't think most Christians today (at least not the ones in my local churches) are actually Christians at all, I believe Jesus would be ashamed to see the type of people who are today claiming to be his followers.

"Many believers admit that nothing could change their mind about their religious beliefs, which means they are no longer seekers of truth and have become, in essence, mindless religious robots. Religion consistently and effectively discourages introspection and inquiry. That isn't by accident."~ Bob Peters 

Do Christians believe that atheists worship devils? I believe that there are many who falsely come in Jesus name, falsely claiming to be Christian, who do believe this, yes. I also believe that anyone who believes this, is not a Christian, no matter how much they call themselves one. Why? Because Jesus also said: "Judge not lest ye be judge by the same measure pressed down and overflowing" and als "he who is without sin, cast the first stone".

People who cast stones at others for any reason, are not Christians, no matter how much they say they are. And therefore no TRUE Christian would ever say that they believed atheists worship devil.

That is my opinion, at least. I am sure there are many other Christians out there who would disagree and find my own Christianity to be a perversion (I know this, because many have said as much to my face, but that again, only proves they are not as Christian as they claim they are.)
