American Atheists plan to send the Georgia Department of Natural Resources enough popular atheist books to place one in every state park cabin.
American Atheists, an atheist organization based out of Cranford, NJ, say they plan to send books on atheism to Georgia state parks. In a recent press release the organization stated the following: American Atheists announced Friday that it will send the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GADNR) enough popular atheist books to place one in every state park cabin in the state. The atheist books will be placed alongside Gideon Bibles already in every state park cabin as directed by Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal on Wednesday. The Bibles were initially removed following a complaint from former American Atheist President Ed Buckner who found nine Bibles in a cabin he had rented last month. But on May 15 Gov. Deal ordered Bibles to be returned…

“If you think it’s not about numbers, quit checking your bank account.” -Perry Noble
Over and over, one of the big reasons that I hear people give for not wanting to attend church is that it’s too big. This blows my mind. They say things like, “Well they are all about the numbers.” What they mean by that is that the church counts how many people are there, they count the offering, and they are always trying to grow. Well, let me just put you at ease. They are 100 percent correct. Most, not all, churches are all about the numbers. But you what, that’s OK. It’s funny how it’s ok for the Atlanta Falcons to count how many fans show up for a game, but it’s not ok for a church to know the same. You count how many “friends” you have on Facebook, how many followers you have on Twitter, and how many people read your blog, but you …

Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us
consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving
up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one
another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

There are approximately 150 churches in Cherokee County. You read that correctly, about 150. In 2009, it was estimated that Cherokee County held a population of 214, 084 people. Now let me drop this on you: about 23 percent of the residents of Cherokee County attend church on a regular basis. Now, that is higher than the national average of 18 percent. Here’s something that will blow your mind: If every resident of the county attended a church service somewhere in the county, all of the churches couldn’t fit the people. The First Baptist Church of Woodstock, which holds 7,000 people, would have to have 31 services. If each service lasts one hour (good luck getting a Baptist preacher to only go one hour) it would, well, you can do …

When Brian Cain, a Holly Springs Police officer, got a Bible from First Baptist Church of Woodstock a year ago, it inspired him to spread the gospel to all the officers in Cherokee County.
Code-4, Holly Springs. Everything is OK. What started as a gift from another church has turned into a life mission for Brian Cain. Two years ago, First Baptist Church of Woodstock gifted all of the Holly Springs police officers with a Bible. From there, Cain, a Holly Springs police officer decided to give all of the Cherokee County police officers and sheriff's deputies a Bible as his way to share the gospel. The Bible collection is part of a larger project, "Code-4 Ministries," which Cain founded to reach the law enforcement officers who had a bad perception of religion. Code-4 is police jargon for "Everything is OK," a message Cain promotes to the men and women who come to the monthly meetings. "I'm called to reach cops who have given up…
