It might be the non-believers who are the non-thinking victims of the cult of godlessness. Let me give an example.
Here is a quotation showing the value of quoting from the Bible. It's from a man who lived a long time ago, writing in the Greek language to Hebrew Christians. He said, "For the word of God [the Hebrew and Greek scriptures of the day] is living and powerful. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." (Hebrews chapter 4 verse 12)
This shows that the scriptures have a power beyond the mere written word. They are designed to expose what is in a person's heart and mind. That is why non-believers often scoff at any quotation from those scriptures. They dismiss God's word (and, hence, God's authority and God's self-revelation) as superstitious nonsense. Yet to those who are genuinely seeking God, the very same words can draw them to God. The Spirit of God operates via correctly applied scriptures, to convince people about the things of God, in a personal way. That's why Christians quote from those scriptures. They are pointing you to a higher authority than mere personal opinion.
