Happy April Fools Day!

"The fool has said in his heart, There is no God." Psalm 14:1

To say "there is no God," and to be correct in the statement, I must be a know it all. I must know how many hairs are upon every head, every thought of every human heart, every detail of history, every atom within every rock…nothing is hidden from my eyes…I would have to know the intimate details of the secret love-life of the fleas on the back of the black cat of Napoleon's great-grandmother.

To make the absolute statement "There is no God." I must have absolute knowledge that there isn't one. If the atheist is reasonable he will have to say, "Having the limited knowledge that I have at present, I believe that there is no God."

In other words, the atheist doesn't know if God exists, so he is not an "atheist," he is what is commonly known as an "agnostic." The word “a” means without and “gnostic” means knowledge — agnostic means without knowledge.

The agnostic is like a man who looks at a building, and doesn't know if there was a builder.

Perhaps the “atheist” has a question about faith. We have faith in plenty of things we don't understand. Did you understand the mechanics of television before you turned it on? Probably not. You took a step of faith, turned it on, and after it worked, understanding how it worked wasn't that important.

Or perhaps he has an ulterior motive? Could it be that the "atheist" can't find God, for the same reason a thief can't find a policeman? Could it be that his love for sin is clouding his good judgment?

If you, like the atheist, have broken even one law, then you have sinned against God and therefore will "surely die," for the "wages of sin is death." We are all guilty of breaking God’s moral law, the Ten Commandments.

Listen to the voice of your conscience, and let it remind you of some of the sins of the past.

On Judgment Day our transgressions will be evidence of our shame. Think of it: God has seen every sin we have ever committed. We share our thought-life with Him. We are guilty of violating His Law a multitude of times, yet if we repent, God can forgive us because Jesus stepped into the courtroom 2.000 years ago and paid the fine for us.

His death on the cross satisfied the Law we so blatantly transgressed, and at the same time demonstrated how much God loves us.

Please, forget your arguments, repent and put your trust in Jesus and be saved from God's wrath. Make Psalm 51 your prayer, then read your Bible daily and always obey what you read; God will never let you down. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Don’t be an April Fool!
