The Proud Atheist
by Brian Price 3/19/2012

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." - Psalms 53:1-3
The word fool insinuates stupidity. Webster's dictionary defines fool as: "a person lacking in judgment or prudence." Many proud atheists snub their nose at Christians, Jews, and Muslims, as if they (the atheists) are superior in knowledge and wisdom, while religious people are completely inferior. Yet the Bible says:

"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." - Romans 1:22

They suppose that those who believe God created the world are childish, foolish, and utterly repugnant. Yet they themselves are hypocrites because they believe that nothing created everything. They believe in foolish theories such as evolution and the Big Bang. They think that nothing created everything.

And I mean, how silly is it to believe in evolution. A dog cannot breed a cat, a bird cannot give birth to a whale. To suppose that dinosaurs evolved into birds is ridiculous. And there's no such thing as transitional fossils. Darwin even admitted that there are no transitional fossils, and he said that it was this fact that could have brought detriment to his theory of evolution.

"Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory. The explanation lies, as I believe, in the extreme imperfection of the geological record." - Darwin, Charles (1859). On the Origin of Species. John Murray. ISBN 0801413192. p. 280313, 4th edition of 1866, p. 359360
So whose really the dumb ones? Christians? Or atheists? I mean lets face it, if you are an atheist, you believe in nothing. You believe that nothing created this world, and that we're just all here for no reason, for no purpose whatsoever, and then when you die, you just cease to exist. My friend, that's just ridiculous. I mean really, I should take time right now for 2 minutes of silence, so everyone can just laugh. This is just absolutely ridiculous to think that nothing created everything. Let's just take for example the verse in Hebrews. It says:
"For every house is builded by some man, but he that built all things is God." - Hebrews 3:4
Now consider the house you live in. Did you ever think that a dog built your house, or maybe your house assembled itself over millions of years without the assistance of any intelligent individual? Of course not. You do not question that your house was built by somebody. You in fact accept that by faith. You accept by faith that your house was built by somebody.

Likewise it is not foolish to accept by faith that this whole world was created by somebody. In fact, its completely logical, and it makes perfect sense. Author L. du Nouy, author of the book Human Destiny said this in regards to transitional fossils of horses:

"But each one of these intermediaries seems to have appeared 'suddenly' and it has not yet been possible, because of the LACK OF FOSSILS, to reconstitute the passage between these intermediaries. Yet it must have existed." - L. du Nouy, Human Destiny, The New American Library, New York, 1947, pg. 74
Another author, Luther D. Sunderland, author of Darwin's Enigma, says this:
"Geology and paleontology held great expectations for Charles Darwin, although in 1859 [when he published his book, Origin of the Species] he admitted that they [already] presented the strongest single evidence against his theory. Fossils were a perplexing puzzlement to him because they did not reveal any evidence of a gradual and continuous evolution of life from a common ancestor, proof which he needed to support his theory." - Luther D. Sunderland, Darwin's Enigma, 1988, pg. 9
Here we see from these two men that evolution requires transitional fossils. And the truth is, the transitional fossils do not exist. There have been numerous attempts to find these transitionals fossils, but many have been found to be a hoax. There was one where a dinosaur was made to look like it was evolving into a bird. It was sort of a part bird - part dinosaur creature.

There have been many different attempts to make these transitional fossils, but they're all hoaxes. But notice that we read here in Psalms 53, that God openly and unashamedly calls atheists, Fools.

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." - Psalms 53:1

God literally laughs at them. He says in Proverbs chapter 1, verses 26-29:

"26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD..." - Proverbs 1:26-29
I mean, this is some very serious business when God says that he would actually mock at somebody. But the fact is that God would only reward somebody something that they deserve. And the only reason why God would mock somebody is because they mocked him. They thought it was so ridiculous to believe in God, and to choose the fear of the Lord, and therefore God would in return mock them when their fear would come, when they go to hell.

And speaking of hell, a story is told by Jesus Christ in the book of Luke, chapter 16. In it, he tells of a rich man who dies and goes to hell. He then continues this story of this rich man, and that he had dialogue with the patriarch Abraham. The rich man tells Abraham to send Lazarus back to earth to tell his brethren about hell, so that they would not come there. But notice what his reply is:

"29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead." - Luke 16:29-31
The picture here we get of this Moses and the prophets, is essentially the Bible. When Abraham says they have Moses and the prophets, this is what the Bible refers to as the Old Testament. Basically, what he is saying is, let them hear the Bible. So if they don't hear what the Bible has to say, they are not going to be persuaded to repent and to trust in God, and in the Lord Jesus Christ, even if one were to rise from the dead, and tell them about hell. And this is some very serious business because Jesus Christ DID in fact rise from the dead.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most proven fact in all of world history, namely because of the eyewitness accounts of the apostles. Not only did their eyewitness accounts agree with one another, but they also DIED for what they believed. And if they died for a lie, then how ridiculous that would be! Simon Greenleaf, a well known professor of law back a couple hundred years ago, said this in regards to the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

"...it was IMPOSSIBLE that the apostles could have persisted in affirming the truths that they had narrated, had not Jesus Christ ACTUALLY RISEN FROM THE DEAD..." - Simon Greenleaf, An Examination of the Testimony of the Four Evangelists by the Rules of Evidence Administered in the Courts of Justice, pg. 29
His conclusion was that their testimony was nothing but the truth.

People like Richard Dawkins (pictured above) walk around with their mouths wide open against God all day long as if God is to blame for all of the world's problems. Yet they fail to realize that man is often-times to blame, and it is the devil that is often-times to blame. Not God.

The Bible says, "For since by man came death..." - 1 Corinthians ch. 15

The reason why there is death in the world, the reason why there is suffering in the world, it is not because of God, but because of MAN. And it all started back in the Garden of Eden, when God told Adam to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. And man disobeyed God, and it was by this disobedience that brought death into the world.

It was never God's intention for man to die. In fact, Jesus said, "I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly," (John 10:10). And Jesus also said, "He that believeth on me, hath everlasting life," (John 6:47). And lastly, God said in John 3:16:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16
God wants to give life to the world. And death comes from the devil; it comes from mankind. So, this whole picture above that I have, it just illustrates that the atheist thinks that he is getting away with blaspheming God.

But what he is really doing is poking a sleeping bear. And you can only poke the bear so much before he wakes up and eats you. And what people like Richard Dawkins, and other atheists out there who hate God, what's going to happen to them is that they are going to find themselves at the end of their life, and they are going to die, and they are going to wake up in hell. And they're going to say, "Oh my gosh, THERE IS A GOD." And it will be too late.

And you know the illustration that Jesus gave about Abraham and the rich man, and how Abraham said they have Moses and the prophets. They have the Bible, let them hear the Bible. This is what the apostle Paul had to say in 1 Timothy chapter 6:

"3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself." - 1 Timothy 6:3-5
The Bible says that if any teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ.... HE IS PROUD. He is a proud man. I've never met a humble atheist. Many times they are proud. Especially the militant ones, and the evangelizing atheist. And it says that he knows nothing. They're foolish. They're very foolish, and they are just full of pride. They are wise.... in their own conceit. I think they are so blinded by pride that they cannot see what is right in front of their face, that the Bible is true.

I mean, here we have the most widely read and published book in all of world history. It's not even on the same scale as other books, as in book sales. Here we have this book that was written by many different authors over a couple thousands years, and they point to Jesus Christ, even before he was born!

Even Moses, in the Old Testament wrote about Jesus, as well as all the other prophets, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel. Even the strongest Old Testament Messianic verse comes from Daniel, in which the word Messiah is only mentioned twice in the Old Testament, and it's right there in the book of Daniel chapter 9. And it talks about Jesus being cut off for the sins of mankind.

So when someone utterly rejects the Bible, and does not listen to what it has to say, they are in some serious trouble. There is absolutely no hope for him. You see, the end for the ranting and raving atheist is hell. The atheist probably thinks to himself, "God won't send me to hell. God won't require my sin." He probably thinks he is a righteous individual. They always think that only Christians are hypocrites, and that atheists are so righteous. Yet, the Bible says, "There is none righteous, no not one," (Romans ch. 3).

They may hate the Christians, and think they are hypocrites, but I mean, look at yourself. You are a hypocrite too. The atheist's thoughts are hateful and contemptous against God. Yet, he has no idea what's ahead. They have no idea, that "...as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." (Hebrews ch. 9). They have no idea that Jesus is going to say to them, "Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels," (Matthew ch. 25:41).

They have no idea that "...the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word, are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men," (2 Peter ch. 3:8).

Dear friend, if you are an atheist and you are reading, or listening to this, my intention of preaching to you is not because I want to see you die and go to hell, but rather because I care about you, and I don't want to see you die and go to hell. The Bible says, that "... the Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9).

God said in the Old Testament, "Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?" (Ezekiel 18:23).

And he also says in Ezekiel chapter 33:11:

"Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?"

God does not have pleasure in your death. I mean, it says, "For God so loved the world," (John 3:16). And if God so loved the world, that includes you. And if you'll just repent of your sins, and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, then you will be forgiven. You will go to heaven. But if you refuse, you will perish. You will die and go to hell. And then when you do, you will realize there is a God. So don't wait for that day to come. You don't know if you're going to live another day. I've worked with several people where their death came out of nowhere.

I worked with one girl who went home on vacation and died in a car crash. So you don't know when you're going to die. But one thing is certain, you are going to die one day. And then when you do, you will know that there is God. And trust me my friend, there is a God.

IF YOU DIED TODAY, WOULD YOU GO TO HEAVEN?
