Atheism is the opiate of the masses.
Enabling escape from the consequences of reality by denying reality.
Christianity is often accused of being an escape for the weak and feeble minded who can’t face reality. For those who can’t look at the facts as they are and the evidence smack dab in front of their faces.
But is that true?
There is a massive cumulative case to the contrary.
Instead those who accuse Christians of intellectual weak knees are themselves shaking in their boots.
Because the consequences of a just God are too much for them to bear.
So they convince themselves there is no God.
Because to them accountability is hell!
Because the concept of an absolute standard of right and wrong throws a wrench in a lifestyle where anything goes, without repercussions. No looking back, no guilt, and no second-guessing.
Because if there is no God then everything is permitted.
Because if there is no God death brings the comfort and solace of sweet oblivion because reality can’t follow and no longer exists. All they have thought and done is erased for eternity.
Everyone needs a savior.
Death is theirs.
They may not deny that eternity exists, but they deny that eternity can touch them personally.
But eternity can’t be mocked. Eternity like our lives is there for a reason. It’s where the chaff will be separated from the wheat. It’s where you and I will encounter Perfect Justice or Perfect Mercy.
If you’re reading this you still have a choice.
His winnowing fork is in his hand,
and he will clear his threshing floor,
gathering his wheat into the barn
and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
