An atheist Tiktok user asked for help and prayed for the first time after watching Christian videos on the media.
Tiktok videos mostly feature entertaining videos but recently, Christians have risen to the challenge and used the platform to share the goodness of God. That’s why, a 32-years-old woman, has responded to the overwhelming love of God.
According to Faithwire, Felicia’s now-viral video showed herself in tears while asking for help. She said, “If you’ve been on my page before, you know I’ve posted things about being an atheist. And I took it down because now I’m really confused. Because all I see are videos about God and Jesus, and I actually prayed the other night. And I don’t know why. I guess I need help because I just don’t know where to start.”
She continued, “I just don’t get how, if you guys claim He loves me so much. I don’t understand why I have denied him so many times.”
In a follow up video, Felicia shared that she grew up as a Christian but became an atheist a few years ago. She said that she did “many bad things” and “doesn’t know where to start” in her journey with God. But she is gradually learning and knowing more of God.
Some of her Christian followers asked her if she would take down her older videos which contain foul languages. “I can see where I was when I felt lost, and you can see it in those videos, and now you can see where I am now,” she responded in another video. “I never want to go back to feeling lost again. And I’m not deleting them because, hopefully, there’s somebody out there who, if they feel lost or if they feel like nobody can relate or understand, they know that someone else felt the same way.”
Daniel Darling, author of “A Way With Words: Using Our Online Conversations for Good”, told Faithwire that although social media can be a toxic place, we can always use it for our good.
He said, “God has called us here in the 21st century — we’re not gonna go back to the 1950s. We’re not gonna all of the sudden become Amish. So the question is how do we steward well these engagement platforms.”
He encourages believers to be mindful of their posts and talk more about the promises and love of God. “And that kind of content, I think, over the long haul, will not just help people see the goodness of Jesus and want to come to faith in Christ. But also to edify brothers and sisters in the Lord.”
