This earth is becoming more chaotic, cruel, and confused as people attempt to make wrong right, evil good, and lies truth – which only underscores our need for more Jesus Christ, as He is the only cure for our chronic condition of self-promoting, self-protecting, and self-pacifying sin.
For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. Romans 10:3-4 (ESV)
What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it? May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, (Romans 3:3-4a NASB)
The unbelief of an atheist doesn’t nullify GOD in any measure or implication; it only minimizes the atheist’s mind, hardens the atheist’s heart, limits the atheist’s life, and reduces the atheist’s usefulness – and ultimately proves the atheist to be a fool.
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1a NASB)
This world is full of exceptional people. There are great numbers around us who have heard the GOOD NEWS of the Savior JESUS and have even read the Holy Scriptures for themselves, yet they remain unconvinced of its promises, uncertain of its purpose, and unchanged by its power. Yes, these are exceptional individuals – women and men with exceptionally closed minds and exceptionally calloused hearts – who refuse to believe there is any need outside of which human ingenuity and intellect has the wherewithal to meet.
