I love the I Am Second website.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time surfing through their videos, and I’ve even been known to shed a tear from time to time. Like most of you who read this site, I love hearing stories from folks about their experiences with God and how His grace has gotten them through some difficult times.
However, I find that there are certain types of testimonies that are championed by the church, and these same types of testimonies are indicative of what you find at I Am Second. They are as follows:
1. Atheist/non-believer converts to Christianity.
2. Christian has great faith despite personal tragedy.
3. Celebrities who are Christians.
Now imagine if Richard Dawkins used I Am Second to announce that he became a Christian. Holy crap, Christians would go nuts, wouldn’t we?! We’d be running through the streets screaming, “We got Dawkins! We got Dawkins!” Then we’d have a huge celebration at Willow Creek Church, and Richard Dawkins would come out wearing his new Jesus uniform.
Meanwhile, the atheists would be burning Dawkins’ old Secular jersey out in the streets and tearing down his posters from the sides of buildings. Sam Harris would write a letter in comic sans telling everyone that the atheists would win a debate before Richard Dawkins does as a Christian.
It’d be amazing.
