Do You Think There’s No God?
Psalm 53 has some harsh words for those who think there is no God: “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.” David, the writer of this psalm, isn’t mincing words when it comes to the idea of saying there is no God. I don’t think we should mince words either. Personally, because of the fact that all people are created in the image of God, it is foolish to think that there is no God. I remember listening to an NPR podcast on the origin of the universe. God had been left out of the conversation entirely until after hearing a few sentences on the vastness and complexity of the universe the host of the podcast inadvertently uttered, “Oh my God”. He then moved on with his sentence but it struck me as quite ironic that in a 45 minute podcast about the origin of the universe where God was never mentioned, “God” made it into the podcast! It’s hard to talk about the origin and complexity of life without at least thinking about or calling on the name of God. If you think there’s no God, then God calls you a “fool”. Don’t be too crestfallen about that. God can correct that in your heart pretty quickly when you acknowledge His existence. Then when you submit to Him you go from fool to friend and that’s a very good transition. If you really think there is no God, message me. I think I can help you go from fool to friend.
