For those of you who say you don’t believe in God and yet He’s the first One you curse when bad things happen…Ask yourself this – Do I or do I not believe in God? You can’t have it both ways. And if you say He’s real, is He just a name you throw blame at when it’s most convenient? See, we can’t say we don’t believe in God and then blame Him for something. That’s foolishness. He’s either real or He’s not. I don’t believe in Santa Claus. This unbelief in him is very freeing. It means I don’t care who believes in him or who doesn’t. It means I literally never have to think about him. I wouldn’t have to spend my limited days coming up with a Freedom from Santa Claus organization. Not believing in Santa of course means I would never blame him for anything because I don’t believe in him. How foolish that would be! This is how silly it looks when people claim they don’t believe in God but then spend a lot of their lives hating Him, trying to disprove Him or blaming things on Him. See, everyone deep down knows God is real, but the hard part is being accountable to Someone other than ourselves. I do not believe that atheists truly exist. As Eric Hovind said, “The truths of God are not a matter of belief or unbelief. They are a matter of acceptance or rejection.” See, no one has ever seen nothing create something. And no one has ever seen a partially evolved creature. Furthermore, we have consciences! Stardust couldn’t create such intricate human beings that know right from wrong. Are you telling me that we, by chance, all know in our hearts that killing an innocent person is wrong? No, friend. The Bible tells us that the law of God is written on our hearts. Romans 2:15 says, “Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another.” Use the brain that God so intricately designed and think for a minute. Examine your heart. You know that it doesn’t make sense that you, as special as you are, could be here by chance. How depressing it would be to think that we just arrived here on this earth and we are accountable to no one! That we have no purpose! How meaningless life would become and how terrifying death would be! You and I both know that God is real. Otherwise why would you spend so much time trying to convince yourselves and others that He’s not? And why is He the first person you blame when bad things happen? There is more to this story – about a Savior that has a purpose for your life. But this, my friend, is the first step. You can either accept it or reject it. The choice is yours.
