Video: How to Convert Your Atheist Friend to Christianity

A blog reader asked for advice on how to convert her friend from atheism to Christianity, so I made a four-minute video to offer my perspective on it.

Having been an atheist myself, I get asked this question fairly often. It’s understandable because we as Christians know we have found the pearl of great price, so we want to share it with our friends who do not yet know Christ.

But there are pitfalls to avoid, the first one being the idea that there is some thing that you can do or say that will convert them. Watch the short video to get the rest!

  1. Darn, I was hoping for some secret formula LOL….Not that it surprises me. I come from a family of non-believers and I’ve been trying to figure a way to plant seeds. I thought, if I could get St. Thomas Aguinas’ five proofs of God down, then I could wow them with my intellectual reasoning. But when I ask about the non-contingent reason for our existence which is contigent, they just shrug it off and say “I don’t know.”
    And that’s that. So yes, I’ve been praying for them also.

  2. Hahaha! Sylvia, I’ve felt the same way. But I realized like you that there is no magical formula. Only God can draw them and only they can choose to respond. It’s interesting because in spite of the fact that most atheists believe they are super-rational, when they are presented with some of Aquinas’ arguments for God’s existence they will often dismiss philosophy as made-up garbage that you can use to defend any position. The relativism runs deeps.

    God bless you with your family!
