Response to an atheist challenge


I notice atheists are lately arguing that Christians born in Christian lands and culture wouldn't be Christians if they hadn't been born in Christian lands and culture.

A simple response to this is: God is sovereign in creation, providence, and grace. Part of providence is where we are born.

Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
— The apostle here opposes both Stoical Fate and Epicurean Chance, ascribing the periods and localities in which men and nations flourish to the sovereign will and prearrangements of a living God. - Commentary of Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown
