I love the winsomeness of Dr. Ravi Zacharias’ respect for others and their ideas even when he believes they are wrong. Atheist Richard Dawkins, on the other hand, is an example of a brilliant mind corrupted by arrogance and disdain. Lacking respect for all who disagree with him, Dawkins resorts to mockery when his ideas don’t carry the persuasive power he desires.
He is a mean-spirited and angry man and he needs our prayers and compassion. Though he is deluded, Dawkins is made in the image and likeness of God and we who have been forgiven through the mercy of Christ need to never stoop to his model but follow instead the path of the Savior. Ravi does a good job of that here.
