Words of Comfort: Fairytales.

"It's not about Ray. It's about the fairytales Christians and other religion followers believe in and the seeds they try to plant among the gullible."  Estelle Bjoring

It's condescending to look down on people who don't believe as atheists do--the scientific impossibility that  nothing created everything (or the silliness that nothing is actually something), that there's no ultimate right or wrong, and that death is the end (when they don't have any idea what happens after death).

Creation/Nature makes the existence of God axiomatic. It's an intellectual embarrassment to have to point out His existence. That's why the Bible calls the atheist a "fool" (see Psalm 14:1).

I often have proud people burst into a crowd (when I'm open air preaching) and act as though they are the intellectual savior of these poor peasants that haven't the brains to judge what I'm saying.  People aren't as dumb as you make out. They have thought out the issues of life and death, and when they understand that God has deliberately chosen foolish-sounding stories to trap the proud in their arrogance, the entire Bible makes sense. They soften their heart, do what it says (repent and trust alone in Jesus) and they come to know God personally. Argument over.
