Words of Comfort: Without Excuse.

This is what God’s Word says about the atheist and why he or she will be without excuse on Judgment Day: 
“For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools…” (Romans 1:20-22).
It’s amazing how “this bronze age 2,000 year old Book written by sheepherders” manages to perfectly peg the atheist. An atheist is someone who believes the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything—when the genius of God’s creative hand surrounds them. Every atheist knows God exists because of the incredible order of nature, and because He has given them inner light via the conscience (con—“with” science—“knowledge”). Yet they are unthankful for the gift of life, and imagine that they are primates with no moral responsibility towards their Creator. They darken their own foolish understanding, and then proclaim themselves to be wise. Watch their condescending response and watch them again confirm the truth of Holy Scripture.
