There is No God. No worries, right?

Only fools say in their hearts, "There is no God." They are corrupt,
and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!


~ Psalm 14:1, NLT

This verse will divide family and friends. Why? Because those who
openly proclaim they don't believe in God actually are offended that
an "old book" would call them on the carpet for their beliefs. I
always find it funny that atheists and agnostics get upset over this
stuff.

You see, if it's not real or a big deal then simply ignore it. But
verses like this one convict their heart. They don't want to admit it.
It's easier to be the "master of their universe" then to rely on a
higher being. If science can't prove it, then they won't believe it.

This is not to say these people are murderers, thieves or pedophiles.
Quite the contrary. The few people I know who don't believe in God are
nice people. Pay their taxes, give to charity and help little old
ladies across the street. Yet, it's such a tragedy that these good
people turn their backs on the One who created the heavens and the
earth.

By denying the existence of God, the Enemy has won their souls. When
the day of judgement comes and they stand before God and plead their
case, the Lord will say He never knew them. They will be condemned to
the fires of Hell for eternity. It's not a matter of what's fair, it's
a call to obedience and trust in God. They turn their backs on God; he
will turn his back on them.

But hey, if it's all just a fairy tale you shouldn't have anything to
worry about.....right?
