Sometimes people have told me of someone they know who is a very smart atheist. They don’t believe in God or in the Bible. If asked, and if I can, I agree to talk to most of them. You see they don’t believe in God while I don’t believe that there are true atheists. So they say there is no God but deep down they know that is a lie. They may have pushed down their belief in God and covered that truth with grass and dirt, but it is there, alive, breathing and powerful in the grave they hid it in. When they are alone, sometimes in the still of the night, they fear that it will rise from the dirt and they will have to face it, by themselves.
The fool makes the choice to convince himself to believe there is no God, or to say that they believe that. They have turned against their own God given good sense. What they know is true, what they always knew to be true, they deny and foolishly reject, all the while knowing the living buried thing. They make a conscious choice till they believe their own lie. They have intellect to know better, they must purposely and persistently and daily work hard to not keep covering what is alive and will change their lives. They keep throwing dirt but the truth kees rising. At night they can hear its voice, but they stuff their ears about the truth what is buried. What they knew and know is true. They fight this till they are overcome and repent from their lie or unto death. That is foolishness. Why should they die when the could live forever in the Truth? A stupid choice from people who reject their own intelligence to run from life and the life giver, so they die. No, God will not condemn them to eternal death, but they will insist upon it for themselves. Love and pray for these. The Lord knows that they know not what they do.
