Don’t Be a Fool (1)
“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” Ps 14:1 NKJV
The atheistic fool. It’s said, “An atheist can’t find God for the same reason a thief can’t find a policeman.” Sometimes pride is at the core of atheism. Without a God, you become your own God, which means there’s no higher power than yourself! But the God of the Bible proves His existence in three ways: (1) Creation. Many people are in prison today who weren’t caught at the scene of the crime, and no one actually witnessed the crime. What proved they did it? Fingerprints! DNA! Creation carries God’s fingerprints and DNA. “Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name” (Isa 40:26 NLT). (2) Calvary. In creation you see God’s power, at the cross you see His love for you. In creation you see His hand, at the cross you see His heart. (3) Conscience. “Gentiles…even without having heard it…demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right” (Ro 2:14-15 NLT). Conscience is like having a Bible in your soul; no one was born without one. Voltaire, the French atheist, said, “It took twelve fishermen to build Christianity. I will show the world how one Frenchman can destroy it.” After Voltaire died, the home in which he had lived became Europe’s most famous Bible distribution center. Bottom line: Voltaire is dead; our God lives! Atheism is the greatest gamble of all. After all, what if there is a God and you stand before Him one day?
