for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand, Joel 2:1.

It is hard to kick against the pricks!

Every time I read or hear anything of what Richard Dawkins says I am always reminded of the words that the Lord Jesus Christ spoke to Saul of Tarsus on the Damascus road and recorded in Acts 9:5: 
And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Once again Richard Dawkins is in the news. This time the embarrassment is his in that he boasted of being able to reel of the full title of his hero Charles Darwin's famous work: Origin of Species. Yet when pressed to do so on Radio Four's Today programme he stumbled over the title and took the Lord's name in vain. 

The full title of Darwin's work, which runs to 21 words, is: On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in The Struggle for Life.

The Daily Mail report of the incident reads

In one sense Dawkins is right in that although 70% of people in Great Britain say they are Christians there is little, and in many cases no, knowledge of the Word of God. They are nominally Christian. The survey he refers to records that two out of three 'professing Christians' cannot name the first book of the New Testament. The survey also details that one in six 'professing Christians' have never read the Bible, and only 28% believe in Christian teachings.

Richard Dawkins is a modern day equivalent of Saul of Tarsus - a man in a rage against the claims of Jesus Christ. May God be pleased to save Richard Dawkins as He did the arch persecutor of the New Testament Church.
