Bankruptcy of atheism
THE EDITOR, Sir:
I don't believe that there are any true atheists - men or women who were born with no consciousness of God.
In the heart of every man, there is knowledge of God, but some men misunderstand it, deny or suppress it for many reasons. Those who do so successfully and announce it to the world are called atheists.
The Bible, the book that professing atheists abominate, says God is angry with man because man suppresses the truth in unrighteousness. Which truth? That God exists: "For what may be known of God is manifest to them, for God has shown it unto them."
This says God has given knowledge of His existence to man. How Has he done this? "For since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse." (Romans 1: 20-21)
In nature, God has clearly communicated to man that He exists and is to be worshipped. This is why I contend there are no real atheists, only pretend ones, who use ingenious reasoning and intellectual nimbleness to deny God's existence.
