The truth behind atheism
by Dr. Jack Graham
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds,
there is none who does good.
Perhaps you’ve noticed as you’ve looked at the Bible that within its pages, there’s never once an argument for the existence of God. In fact, today’s Scripture is the only verse that directly addresses anything close to the subject. But it tells us much about the mindset behind the atheistic worldview: it’s definitely mistaken.
You see, the atheistic worldview tells us that long, long ago, a chance event happened where life came into being. And through an innumerable series of other random events, over millions of years, inanimate matter evolved into the life we have today.
Now, I don’t know about you, but to me, that’s absolute foolishness. And the reason many people adhere to it isn’t because of the plausibility of the arguments. Behind the atheistic mindset is a rebellious spirit that wants to take God out of the picture. That’s because if there’s no God, there’s ultimately no accountability.
But if we look at what’s most logical, we know that creation requires a transcendent Creator. And that Creator, I firmly believe, is the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. We know God by the relationship we have with His Son, Jesus. Acknowledge God today as your Creator and King by affirming your faith in Jesus!
THE ATHEISTIC WORLDVIEW IS FOOLISHNESS. SO EMBRACE GOD AS YOUR CREATOR BY AFFIRMING YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST TODAY.
