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 blogs

“A dear friend of mine called me last night absolutely heartbroken, sounding like he had just finished intensely sobbing. His wife, who was once a zealous lover of Jesus, and also a big fan of your ministry, had been slowly slipping from God for about a year. She has spent much of her time feeding her doubts with atheist blogs and has now become a complete skeptic herself. She has cried saying she wants to believe as she used to, but can’t anymore. My friend, her husband, is very intelligent and well versed in apologetics and has given her apologetic books, but it seems like nothing he says gets through. My friend is one of the godliest people I know, so was his wife. They have a few children as well. He was calling me for support and advice. Do you have any suggestions on what he should do?”

You should tell him that one thing worse than finding out that my wife was a false convert, would be not finding it out. So these atheist bloggers may have done him (and her) a big favor, because Judgment Day will expose every human heart, and then it will be too late. I don’t know if his wife is a false convert, but the question I would have for her is why would she spend any time on atheist blogs? These writings are founded on the stupidity that nothing created everything. That is scientifically impossible. According to the Bible (and to common sense), atheists are fools who profess to be wise, and their agenda is to reproduce after their own kind. That is where they find a sense of security. They think that stupid is no longer stupid, if enough people believe the stupidity. They point to great intellects such as Carl Sagan (who wasn’t an atheist), Albert Einstein (who wasn’t an atheist) and Mark Twain (who wasn’t an atheist) and with no qualms of conscience say that these men didn’t believe in the existence of God.

They will also stand in moral judgment over God by saying that He told Joshua to kill every man, woman, and child, and when you ask them if He really did do that, they realize that they have painted themselves into a corner. This is because if God told Joshua to kill the Canaanites, then they are saying that God exists, and the issue is really that atheists are offended by His harsh judgments. If they say that God doesn’t exist, then God never told Joshua to do anything, because God doesn’t exist. And so they are complaining about something that never happened. That’s like spending your life complaining that it wasn’t fair that Cinderella’s slipper didn’t fit her ugly sisters. And this man’s precious wife suffers these fools gladly.

So anyone who spends their time reading lies written by fools will in time become like them. People who frequent porn sites become porn freaks. Those who bury their heads in violence become violent. Those who spend time in God’s Word grow to love and trust God. This issue goes back to Satan’s fist words to a woman “Has God said…?” Those who doubt God and instead believe the devil are left with an open invitation to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season, but they are also left with no purpose in life, no origin for life, and no salvation from death and a very real Hell.
