Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Atheist Paranoia

Joshua S. Black, when addressing an atheist said, “For people who don't believe in God, you guys sure are paranoid about something!!” How true that is. I have known many atheists, and I have found them to be totally committed to their negative cause. They are zealots, fanatics--who are serious, angry, hateful, and blasphemous towards something they don’t believe in. And what’s more, they spend their time gathering fuel for the fire of their hatred for God and those that love Him. They gather what they think is legitimate fuel, whether it is atrocities committed by hypocritical religions of history, or the horrors of the Inquisition (the Catholic church torturing Christians for their faith in Jesus). They even gather unintelligent and unscientific material. It qualifies for use because it fits their presuppositions. Any fuel will do, as long at it puts smoke between them and the God they hate “without cause.” It was Jonathon Miller who said, “In some awful, strange, paradoxical way, atheists tend to take religion more seriously than the practitioners.” So, what is this “something” about which they are so paranoid? It is the same “something” that makes criminals paranoid, and it is that paranoia that fuels criminals to have a deep-rooted hatred for the police. It’s not the individual officer they hate; it’s what he stands for--civil law. And that’s the root of the hatred that the atheist has for God and for those that represent Him. Once again, the Bible has said this all along. It hits the nail on its big and hard head: Romans 8:7: “. . . because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God's Law; indeed it cannot” (Amplified Bible). They hate the morality that God’s Law demands. That's the fuel for their hostility.
