Psalm 14:1
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

Otherwise known as “The Fools Creed”. To say there is no God is truly one of the most foolish stands that anyone could possibly take. The person who claims there is no God denies His existence simply because they do not want there to be a God, an irrational position to take, to say the least!

First of all to say there is no God, is a claim to all knowledge; It is saying, “I know everything. It is not possible that a God could exist beyond the boundaries of my knowledge.” This is the height of pride and arrogance. Mankind has so deluded themselves into thinking that they know absolutely everything, that they have succeeded in knowing nothing true. They go around patting themselves on the back for all that they have learned apart from God….how sad and foolish!

Second, this attitude claims omnipresence; it says, “I am present in all places at one time, and it is not possible that God could exist anywhere in the universe without my knowing about it.” The individual who claims this is ignoring the wonders and complexity of creation, the immensity of the universe, the precise movement of the planets, the design of the human body and brain, the way a seed sprouts from the soil as a plant…..etc. The theory that all this happened by chance is just not even in the realm of possibilities! That is why God calls atheists fools.

There is a definite connection between a person’s creed, and conduct that comes from said creed. The lower a person’s conception of God is, the lower their morals are apt to be.
Barnes writes: “The belief that there is no God is commonly founded on the desire to lead a wicked life, or is embraced by those who in fact live such a life, with a desire to sustain themselves in their depravity and to avoid fear of future retribution.”
I believe this to be the crux of why people hold so vigilantly to evolution. If you believe that you came from an ape, then you need act no better than one! There is no God in your mind that you are responsible to so it is permissible to act however you feel like acting. It is extreme selfishness and pride.

Romans 1:20 says, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”
Creation demands a Creator. Design demands a Designer. By looking up at the sun, moon, and stars; anyone can know there is a God. There will be no excuse when one stands before God, for He has displayed Himself in creation for them to know of His existence, they cannot say they didn’t know!

Thank You Father God for creating all that exists. Thank You for sending Jesus to shed His blood for my sins and redeem me to You so that I can spend eternity in heaven. I love You so and give You all praise this day, Amen!
