They were told that atheists were people who do not believe in any God. The villagers were baffled, how could someone not believe in a God, not any God whether good or bad gods. The villagers discussed amongst themselves and said that atheists must be people who are maybe blind and dumb and are locked in a cell somewhere. Clearly the villagers could know there is a god because they live near a river.
The visitors told the natives that there are people who pay doctors to kill unborn babies in their wombs. The villagers were even more shocked at this then the atheist idea. They told the visitors to stop telling them these things because it is giving them bad thoughts.
Who are the real primitives, us or them?
By far and wide, there is a Big Lesson to be learned here. This without a doubt shows that "mankind" of the modern world, is influnced a lot by Satan. We as Christians need to be very careful that we don't let our "modern world" pull us away from God. These Villagers sound like they have "Wisdom and yet know God, even if they don't know how to lable God like we do....yet they respect Life, and know God should be worshiped and all without a Bible.
