Athiests

I was watching Larry King on CNN one night. There was an atheist and a believer being interviewed. The atheist was all for separation of church and state. What he didn’t realize was separation of God and state is an impossibility. He didn’t like the “under God,” in the pledge of allegiance, “In God we Trust” on our coins, Christmas decorations on public property, etc.

It came to me that maybe God was doing to us what He did in Russia, which brought about the revolution. We are warned in the book of Revelation that if we are lukewarm, He will spue us out of his mouth. He would, that we were hot or cold. Since He knew that revival was out if the question in Russia, there was only one way to go – cold. (Revelation 3:15, 16) You can’t get any colder than atheism.

I am a Christian and I am offended by all the Christmas decorations and commercialistic hoop-la. If God is also offended, maybe we can see where some of the opposition is coming from. I think its something that deserves a good look. If what we are doing is an offense to God, He can, will, and has used more ungodly people than His own, to bring chastisement on them.

The Atheist, Mr. Sherman, was quick to divorce the Declaration of Independence from the Constitution. Larry King, as well as the guest, was quick to point out that the name of “God” is not mentioned in the Constitution. The fact that religion was mentioned in the 6th Article of the Constitution goes to prove that the men were certainly aware of the power in a person’s belief of God, and the havoc it could raise if the government were to require a test to make sure the subject was up to “their” standards.

It is my opinion that you can’t divorce the two documents. About 6 of the signers that are on one or the other documents, are in fact seen on both of them. If you make a study of the signers, you will find in a lot of cases they were men of faith. This is a fact that an atheist will cover up or at least not volunteer in a debate. They are out to captivate and win over the simple minded. They will admit to as little truth as possible. They remind me of the “Flat Earth Society.” Whereas they hide their head in the sand, the atheist is bold and full of pride in their declaration that there is no God. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Psalms 53:1

They hide behind the flag in the name of patriotism, but listen to what George Washington (a signer of the Constitution, that does not mention God) has to say about them. This quote comes from The Rebirth of America, page 225, published by The Arthur S. DeMoss Foundation, from an article written by Jerry Falwell. These words came from President Washington upon his leaving office in 1796, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable support. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars.” In all fairness it should be pointed out that the Constitution had at least one other draft. I heard someone tell of a draft that was in the National Archives that was a lot more hospitable to religion at the least, and God at the most, but it was changed in a compromise to the “church and state” alarmist factions.

Atheists are the lowest form of rebellion. They are in a constant mode of biting the hand that feeds them. God gives us every breath we breathe. (Job 12:10; Daniel 5:23) These people are smitten with the worse thing that can happen to a human being, PRIDE. It is number one on God’s hate list.

Anyone that says “there is no God”, is a good prospect for selling a bill of goods that says, everything came from nothing, or that the makings of the earth and universe, just happened to be there. Who said atheists don’t believe in miracles. It takes more faith to say everything was just there, than to say that God was just there. If this fact isn’t enough, the fact that the Bible has been proven true, by archeology, science, and history should be. (See: Creation vs. Evolution).

I think if the truth were known, most atheists were offended somewhere along the line while growing up. They either suffered the loss of a loved one or some sort of other tragedy that they can’t come to grips with. I’m sure another aspect is when they look around the world at all the wars and starvation and say to themselves, “how can there be a God with all this suffering going on.” What they don’t realize is, mankind brings all the suffering on themselves. (See: God of Wrath).
