The Age In Which We Live
It’s sad but true that we are living in an age of escalating secularism, humanism and materialism. Is it any wonder some people think it is difficult believing in God? Every effort is being made to rid people’s thinking of God. Godless evolution encroaches into every aspect of our educational system.
But the truth is, there is enough evidence of God’s existence to convince intellectually honest people there is a Creator, and God will definitely hold atheists accountable for denying Him. Psalms 14: 1 says, “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.” Thus, atheism is a matter of the heart, not of the head and not a conclusion formed because of evidence. It is not belief reached by research or honest investigation. As Rom. 1: 20 says, “Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-His eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Yes, what God created is evidence of God’s creative power and wisdom-and it is inexcusable for people to refuse to see God in that evidence.
Think about it! If you were walking through a desert and came upon an automobile with the engine idling, you would certainly see in it such obvious evidence of design that you would never theorize it might have been produced by an accidental explosion in a distant junk yard. But, my friends, imagining an automobile resulting from an accidental explosion in a junkyard is easy compared to trying to explain the universe and life without God. “For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God” (Heb.3: 4). To advocate that there is no evidence for God in the visible universe is neither intellectual nor honest. Think on these things.
