"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works." Psalm 14:1
An atheist is a person who believes that there is no God. The Bible tells us of these kinds of people and describes them as being foolish, corrupt, and full of iniquity. Of course, they wouldn't believe that about themselves. Most atheists (but not all) seem to have the same beliefs as secular scientists. "The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs." And they think we're the idiots. They think we're close-minded for not even considering the theories they came up with, but in reality, the truth has been revealed to us through the beautiful creation of God Almighty. The Bible also reveals this to us very clearly. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1). The Word of God (written thousands of years ago) gave us (now known) facts before scientists even discovered them. Such facts are that everything we see is made up of invisible atoms (Hebrews 11:3), the Earth just floats there in space (Job 26:7), and the cycle of air currents (Ecclesiastes 1:6), etc. "Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power, and motion. Genesis 1:1,2 revealed such truths to the Hebrews in 1450 B.C.: "In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter] . . . And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters." The first thing God tells man is that He controls of all aspects of the universe" (The Evidence Bible). Science is even in the very first verse of the Bible. You can visit here for more information on these scientific facts found in God's Word. The Bible has all the answers that anyone would ever need. I found an interesting quote that is actually pretty obvious - "If God didn't exist, neither would atheists." This is so true because without God, none of us would be here, not even atheists. Lots of atheists even argue back at this quote saying that we're not thinking logically for using it. There is a God (this isn't just a belief - it's absolute truth, He has proved Himself over and over again). God made all people. So...without God Who made everyone, there would not be anyone. Why can't atheists at least have this mindset - "I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't than to live my life as if there isn't a God and die to find out there is." They shouldn't have to think like this though. We should tell them the Gospel message and if they don't accept it then at least we planted a seed. That, in time, might be watered and eventually flourish into a zealous Christian. It is so sad when you think about how God's looking at His own creation and they're denying His very existence. We must go out there and not care what they think of us. They might think we're idiots who can't think for ourselves but we know the truth and must hold to it. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ" (Romans 1:16). Let's not care what they think about our beliefs. We aren't here to please the world but to please our Creator. May we show them the evidence of God's existence.
I'm a twenty one year old Christian saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. Praise the great name of our glorious Savior!!
Go serve your King!"
