The So-Called Atheists prove God’s existence every time they spend millions of dollars on bill boards, commercials and t.v. shows to deny it. Their desperation to not believe would be funny if it weren’t so saddening. A true Christian can no longer laugh at them, though. It’s come to the point where my heart breaks for them. Sometimes they anger me and I lose compassion, it’s true. But that is only because I am evil to the bone. Thank you, God, for Jesus who redeems me from myself. But when my heart is correct, as it is now, I feel sorry for them. Satan has convinced them that if only they can silence us Christians, and if only they can get rid of the Word, ‘God’ and ‘Jesus’ and take down every cross, then they will no longer feel compelled to believe. Because, make no mistake about it, they do believe.
That is what makes them so very angry. They don’t want to believe. They don’t want to believe so much that they have made it their life’s mission to not believe. They are certain that they only believe because they were influenced, since they were young, by their parents and society to believe. They think it is a mere environmental training thing- at least, that is what satan has whispered into their ear. They believe they can raise children who can be ‘trained out of God’. They don’t know about the scripture where God said, in Hebrews 10: 1-18
1The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. 2Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. 3But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins. 4It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
5Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said:
“Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
but a body you prepared for me;
6with burnt offerings and sin offerings
you were not pleased.
8First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. 9Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.”
He sets aside the first to establish the second. 10And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, 13and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool. 14For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
“15The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:
16“This is the covenant I will make with them
after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
and I will write them on their minds.”
17Then he adds:
“Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.”
18And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.“
You can see why satan doesn’t want them to believe in these particular verses right? Because these verses, among all verses, are the most critical. They encapsulate the very essence of our salvation through Christ. Here is the holy promise of God. That the promise of salvation through Christ is written on the hearts of all men. All the laws of God, including the fact that Christ’s sacrifice and the forever forgiveness that results is written on all men’s hearts. We believe in them. We naturally believe in them. That is why people, when they once hear, believe. Their hearts naturally believe. (p.s. that’s also why God doesn’t need you to be perfect in your witness- people already want to believe, so just open your mouth and speak- that’s good enough.)
These verses also tell us that all men will know who God is and what his laws are- even if they don’t know Jesus. Elsewhere in the Bible, God adds, “so no man will have an excuse.” All individuals simply know that God exists by seeing nature around them. That is why even primitive people believe in God. That is why all peoples, all cultures, understand the same basic morality- no matter how isolated they have emerged from one another- we all understand, ‘thou shalt not murder, steal, commit adultery, provide false witness, etc’ These are standard moral ideals across all cultures. If nothing else, this Universal Morality is proof of God’s existence, but the Coffee House Intellectuals of this world simply look the other way. Ah, well.
The So-Called Atheists are desperate to eradicate all mention of God because they have bought into satan’s promise (ha!): if you can just eradicate all reminders of God, you will finally get rest from him. You will finally stop believing in him and you will get peace. Today, because they still believe in Him, they have no peace. They still feel his eyes boring into their backs as they lust. They still feel His judgment as they curse his Son’s name. They still sense a terrible fear of death and hell. How do I know this? Well, just tell an Atheist that they are going to die and see what happens. All this creates a rage within them. It solidifies their resolve to complete their mission quickly.
But they will never succeed.
Because they are wrong.
They can kill every Christian. They can take down every cross. They can strike the words, ‘God’ and ‘Jesus’ from every book, t.v. show, blog and newspaper. They can do all this and God will still exist. And the very worst part is this:
He will exist in their own hearts. And they will know it.
Satan is a liar. Jesus said that lying is satan’s native language. We should be better Christians. We should not hate the so-called atheists. I wish I could be like this all the time. I pray that we should all remain in Christ’s love and forgiveness for so-called atheists. I pray that we can love them and not despise them. I will pray for us all right now, that we can all be cleansed, once and for all, of our own hatred and disdain for these lost people.
Help us, Jesus, to understand how much satan is lying to them. Help me, Jesus, to not provide bad leadership to people when I speak about these people. Help me to be more loving and gracious and pure in my love toward those whom satan is torturing for they are going to die and I should feel mercy, not anger. Forgive me, Jesus, for I have truly sinned against my brothers. I feel guilty, Lord, because I know I have sinned. Anger is not your way, Jesus. I will do better, Lord. Thank you for my life and my opportunity to witness. Help us all to witness properly in your name, that we should not shame you in this world, Lord Jesus. We are evil and we know it. We thank you for your blood and your sacrifice for us. Thank you for being so willing to suffer for our sins, Jesus. You didn’t have to, we know this. We know you did it for love. For that, we love you so much in return. We owe you our eternal servitude. Jesus, you were so kind and loving when you were here- please help us to be like you and not like ourselves. Thank you, Amen.
