Psalm 14:1 "The Fool hath said in his heart there is no God."
Atheism... the denial of the existence of God. Millions of people around the world and in the US refuse to accept the existence of God. Why is this? Why would people refuse to put their trust in God who has the power to either save or destroy man? I believe the Atheist by his very nature is arrogant.
1. The Atheist believes HE knows what is best. My friend, that in itself is foolish. Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25 both say that there is a way that seems right to a man but the end is death.
2. The Atheist is condescending towards people who are religious, including and especially Christians. Seth Macfarlane, creator of the TV program "Family Guy" is well known in Hollywood as a proud Atheist and it is visible in his TV shows and movies where God is often mocked and Christians are made fun of. "Pride comes before destruction" Proverbs 16:17-18.
3. The Atheist is not only condescending but is often vulgar towards Christians and God. Bill Maher said on his HBO show not long ago that God was a psychopath guilty of murder. What a vile statement by a vile human being. Mr. Maher, the unbelieving shall have their place in the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8)
The Atheist while arrogant, has a soul and sadly is lost unless he comes to believe the truth. Pray for these people.
