There is no God (Atheism)

There is no God (Atheism)

cielo-soleAtheism is the belief that there is no God. The word Atheism comes from the Greek word atheos which means ‘without God’ (a ‘without’ + theos ‘god’).

Confutation

Creation itself bears witness that there is a God, that is, a living, omnipotent and intelligent Being who created it. The apostle Paul wrote to the saints in Rome that since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and Godhead – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made (Romans 1:20); and David said that the heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork (Psalm 19:1). Therefore, since the existence of God is so clearly witnessed by His works, those who deny His existence are fool. “The fool has said in his heart, ‘there is no God” (Psalm 53:1 – NKJV).

Atheists are without excuse, because they are surrounded by the works of God which attest very clearly that God exists. Undoubtedly the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, clearly prove the existence of God because they did not come into existence by chance or by their own power but by the will of the only true God. For according to the Scripture there was a time when all these things did not exist, then at a certain point of past time (about six thousand years ago) they came into existence by the will of God. God created them in six days (Genesis 1:1-31; 2:1-3; Exodus 20:11), and in wisdom God made them all (Psalm 104:24). Oh, what a wonderful wisdom can be seen in all the works of God! It can be seen even in the simplest forms of life. God is indeed a wise Designer and Creator! Among the things made by God, one, that is, man, was made in God’s image, for the Scripture says: “So God created man in His own image” (Genesis 1:27 – NKJV). That’s why Paul says that man “is the image and glory of God” (1 Corinthians 11:7 – NKJV). Man himself, therefore, bears witness that God exists. When one considers that man is an intelligent being, with a will, reasoning ability, emotions and a conscience, how can he deny the existence of God?

To sum up, just as one’s computer or one’s watch exists because someone designed it and built it, and we can’t affirm that no one has made it (for it suddenly appeared one day accidentally!), so the universe (that is, the heavens, the earth, the sea and all that is in them) exists because someone designed it and made it, and this ‘someone’ is God, whose name is Yahweh. In other words, the perfection, the beauty, the design and the orderliness of the universe require the existence of a Supreme Being whose intelligence and power have no limit, and this Supreme Being is God. It is absurd to think that the universe was not created by God.

Let me tell you something else about the existence of God. I am absolutely sure that God exists because I know Him; He has saved me from my sins, He has given me a new heart and a new mind, and He has come to me and made His home with me. I am absolutely sure that God exists because He has delivered me from many dangers, from many distresses, and He has supplied my needs in answer to my prayers. I bear witness that He is a living God, a faithful God, a God who is a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1). To Him be the glory now and forevermore. Amen.

Therefore, if you are an atheist, I exhort you to believe that God exists, and also that He so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for our sins and rise for our justification; know this, that if you believe these things you will surely taste the goodness of God for He will manifest Himself to you by forgiving your sins and giving you eternal life. On the contrary, if you are a believer I exhort you to keep believing in the existence of God and in the atoning sacrifice of His Son, and to refute atheism, which is one of the lies conceived by the devil.

    “Atheists are without excuse, because they are surrounded by the works of God which attest very clearly that God exists.”

    How?

    “In other words, the perfection, the beauty, the design and the orderliness of the universe require the existence of a Supreme Being whose intelligence and power have no limit, and this Supreme Being is God. It is absurd to think that the universe was not created by God.”

    Ah, I see. A thing’s “perfection” and “beauty” is a subjective statement, which renders it meaningless if you are trying to prove God by a thing’s perfection. For example, I certainly don’t see this supposed creation as perfect, so does that mean that I just disproved God? By your line of reasoning, if you are able to prove God claiming a thing’s perfection, I should also be able to disprove God by claiming that that very same thing is not perfect.

    Do you see what I’m trying to get at? Because adjectives like “perfect” and “beautiful” are subjective, they can’t be used to prove an objective truth.

    Just fyi, if you check the OED atheists may either believe there is no god or simply lack a belief in god.
