I think most atheists today believe in a god-like race of aliens who come from either space, the future or an alternate reality. They consider them mortal beings so that's why they aren't gods. Some still think that planet Nibiru is a real planet, and those beings created us. They will believe almost anything other than the God of the Bible. They don't want sin to exist. They want to be free to do as they deem best. They totally reject that "there is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof is the way of death".

 

I have never read or heard these ideas from any atheist, JTC.  Atheists, by definition, don't believe in any type of gods, god-like beings or deities.  Where do you get this information from?

It comes across to me like they are attacking Christian chaplains by insisting on non-Christian chaplains.  It is sort of like how non-Christian groups will mess up a nativity scene by secularizing it, or how you may be able to have prayer in school if all religions are treated the same.  The idea is to get rid of religion altogether, by making it hard to meet the standards.  I can's see any other reason for having unbelievers acting as chaplains.  Of course, anything is possible.

This is inane. It makes no sense whatsoever other than Atheism being a religion, which it is.

Even then it makes no sense because Atheism is a religion without a god so what is the purpose of a chaplain?

 

Remember satan copies God in all things, O.W.  And, you're right, atheism IS a religion.  One of satan's denominations.

    I don't even know what to say besides"ridiculous!" Brother Butero said it even better...............

 

What will he say?  You are just an animal and when you die, that's the end?  The idea of an atheist chaplain is ludicrous.

In NY State we now have Atheist churches. That's another head scratcher. I heard that a typical sermon would be like listening to a motivational speaker. They emphasize how you can do anything if you believe in yourself. The whole positive mental attitude is preached. There is some truth to that. But taken too far and you have New Age thinking. The reporter even mentioned a song they sing. It was a song from my generation, but I forgot. It might have been that song "I'll Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. The focus is on The Self. It's better than an Islam Mosque where they preach Sharia Law.

I think it is an attention getting move and it has certainly done that.  It is also to elicit a reaction, which they also got.

More than once we have listened to stories how on the battle field a soldier carrying a Bible in his pocket was saved by that same Bible stopping the penetration of a bullet headed for his heart.  Are the Bibles next on the hit list?

They could get that from some of our popular megachurches.

How would an atheist "chaplain" give marriage counsel, or comfort someone that was sexually assaulted, or help a person who's problems are beyond anyone's ability to solve?

 

What would their solution be to help these people?  Christian Chaplains have so much more to offer someone in need.

Just hire psychologists, call them counselors, and be done with it.  Some psychologists aren't much help either without God's wisdom and guidance.  But they might be of help with grieving and run support groups or self help groups.  The problem is that most people need God's forgiveness and help.
