An Honest Atheist

Sergio is an honest atheist. He, unlike so many atheists, willingly admits to why he doesn't believe in the existence of God. He doesn't want anyone telling him what to do. While most atheists will hide behind the smoke screen of secular humanism, naturalism, or intellectualism there are those like Sergio who will not shy away from the heart of the matter, which is the matter of the heart.

Sergio doesn't want God telling him what to do because Sergio is an idolater. Sergio worships himself. He wants to be the god of his existence. In doing so, he, like other atheists, validates the truth of God's Word. Sergio loves his sin. Sergio is suppressing the truth of the existence of God and the reality of sin, judgment, and Hell. He is suppressing these truths by his unrighteousness (Romans 1:18).
