Atheists in Germany recently made a bus tour of several cities, advertising their belief that God doesn't exit.
However they didn't go alone. A group of German Christians decided to "escort" the atheists -- and counter their message.
The atheists chartered a double-decker bus to take their message on a 25-city, national tour.
Their slogan: "There is -- with a probability bordering on certainty -- no God."
"We're traveling around Germany to draw attention to the fact that a lot of people live happy and fulfilled lives without religion," atheist bus spokesman Philipp Moeller said. "These are people that don't need the Bible for ethics, norms, and values."
But unlike atheist campaigns elsewhere, this bus had a challenger.
"And we would like to accompany this other tour to point to the fact that you can get to know God, because we believe He is real and you can get to know Him," Christian bus spokesman Andreas Bartels said.
The Christian-sponsored bus posed the question: "and if He really does exist..."
The competition was friendly, and both sides welcomed discussions. Local Christians joined the buses at stops along the tour, and shared the gospel with songs, leaflets and personal testimonies.
