There is a saying, “The atheist can’t find God for the same reason that a thief can’t find a policeman.” The atheist claims that there is insufficient evidence for the existence of God. But, honestly, they are no different than the Pharisees and religious Jews that rejected their Messiah, Jesus. Jesus performed many miracles, and they still demanded proof. The truth is, they did not want to submit to the authority of Jesus Christ. Neither are the atheists willing to submit themselves before the throne of God.
Pride is the enemy! It took down Satan. It took down Adam. And pride is the wood that fuels the fires of hell for each man that exalts himself before the throne of God.
“For this they WILLINGLY ARE IGNORANT OF (choose not to know), that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But 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 3:5-7
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who HOLD THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (hold back, restrain, keep from penetrating).” ~Romans 1:18
