Psalm 53:1 “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God…’”
We have a word in our world for someone who doesn’t believe in God. We say atheist. It’s a gentle term for those who choose not to believe.
God also has a word for the person who doesn’t believe that there is a God. God uses the term, fool. It’s not quite as gentle.
Perhaps one of the reasons for the abrupt approach is because God knows that the evidence for Him is, in reality, undeniable. There is not one shred of evidence in our world that suggests that something can come out of nothing. Every creation, in every corner, of every inch of our world, has needed someone to make it. Time doesn’t change a pile of lumber into a house. Eons wouldn’t take Scrabble tiles and form an intricate message. There is always an outside source.
The intricacies of our world shout Creator. No creation exists without a creator. A design always demands a designer. Time doesn’t change that reality.
We can say atheist if that makes us feel better. But an atheist by any other name still means fool in God’s vocabulary.
Look around. What in your world would exist without someone carefully crafting, forming, and honing the things you see? Look at the world. How could it have come about as well?
Psalm 53:1 sums it up, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God...’”
God, I see You in all of the creation around me. Thank You for such blatant evidence.
