NO EXPLANATION FOR CREATION: All things were made by him;
and without him was not any thing made that was made. -Jn
The Universe is a vacuum. Where then did matter and energy come
from? Where did the earth, sun, moon and the constellations of
stars come from? Other than God Himself, something cannot come
out of nothing. Every effect must have a cause. The energy in the
Universe is the effect. What causes it? The Scriptures rightly show
the foolishness and inconsistency of man - "The fool hath said in
his heart, There is no God..." ( Psa 14:1 )
It isn't rational to argue that the world which is based on cause and
effect is itself uncaused. - Michael Green
NO EXPLANATION FOR INTELLIGENCE: For the invisible things
of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood
by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so
that they are without excuse. - Rom 1:20
An atheist cannot accept the fact that a car can exist without a
maker or a house without a builder. But, at the same time, he can
accept the myriad of living things which are millions of times more
complex than cars or houses without a Maker or Designer. Where
is the logic?
NO EXPLANATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF LIFE: Vanity of
vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. What profit
hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? - Eccl
Why are we here? Where are we going? What is the purpose of
life? An atheist has many questions but no answers.
An atheist is someone who is all dressed up but has no where to
An atheist has no excuse in life.
NO EXCUSE FOR NOT KNOWING HIS GOD: Because that which
may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto
them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are
clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his
eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse. - Rom
NO EXCUSE FOR NOT KNOWING HIS SINS: For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God. - Rom 3:23 If we say that we have
not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. -1
NO EXCUSE FOR NOT KNOWING HIS JUDGMENT: Who knowing
the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy
of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
- Rom 1:32
An atheist has no escape in death.
THE SURETY OF JUDGMENT: And as it is appointed unto men
once to die, but after this the judgment. - Heb 9:27
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books
were opened... and the dead were judged out of those things which
were written in the books, according to their works. - Rev 20:12
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh
reap corruption... - Gal 6:7-8
THE SEVERITY OF JUDGMENT: And whosoever was not found
written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. - Rev 20:15
... the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his
eyes, being in torments... And he cried and said, Father Abraham,
have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his
finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
- Lk 16:22-24
When we travel to a foreign land, we will be judged by the laws of
that land no matter how severe they may be. We cannot demand
that we be judged and punished accordingly to our expectations
and thinking. Similarly, when we die and meet God, we will be judged
by His high and holy standards, and not by our standards, or rather
We are so subnormal that when we try to be normal others will
think that we are abnormal.
Dr Jacks tells the story of two friends who had rather blatantly
proclaimed themselves to be atheists. When mortal sickness visited
one of them, the other came to see him and, perhaps a little afraid
lest at the last he should abandon his atheism, said to him, "Stick to
it, Bill!" "But," replied the stricken man, "there is nothing to stick to!"
- J.D. Jones
Atheism is the death of hope, the suicide of the soul.
There is nothing so costly as ignorance. - Horace Mann.
