It should not be surprising that the world abounds with atheists. The Lord Himself knows it in that it was written, “some will depart from the faith” (1Timothy 4:1). Some will become faithless. Most surprising is the rationale of how they have come to unbelief. The general consensus seems to be in that the Most High God had fallen short of explanation, detail, description, or was simply ignorant of the discoveries of men today. So that since He failed to provide premonition of all these things their conclusion is that He is inexistent. The Word failing to provide knowledge of all these is then set aside as erratic and acclaimed as a grand hoax.
Such people, atheists, will never find the answer they are looking for. When they said the Word have no answer, they simply failed to understand and accept. Sadly, that is to his own destruction for it was wisely written, “there is a way that seems right to a man but its end is the way to death” (Proverbs16:25).
Let us have a deeper look at these people. I am not really good in onomastics, so may I be forgiven if my weakness offends. There are two kinds of Atheists:
Alienics: Farsighted- Deep Thinking Supernovas
These people are proud to declare of their atheistic knowledge from some out of this world kind of reasoning. These people are not born atheist, in fact, they claimed to have read it and heard of the Word. But they are devoid of understanding and comparable to those who received the seed on rocky ground. They have belittled the greatness of God after being astounded by the discovery of more planets that they claim were beyond the knowledge of God or that nothing about it was written in the Holy Bible.
The Gospel of John declared that if everything that the Lord Jesus had done would be written, the world would not be enough to contain all the books that would be written (John 21:25). It means that if the Bible writers had gone to the trivial task of just listing all the planets, moons, suns, stars, and every heavenly bodies which through the Lord were all made then the Bible must have been on its preparatory stage at this time. Insisting on it would have defeated the very purpose of its creation, besides I suppose they can not insist on God as they were to write only what they were told, heard and saw. The needs of the people would have been neglected as they are everywhere now grazing the earth that they were told to be good steward of. Building people up in faith would not have been realized even today.
Bionics: Animal Tinkerers
These people must have watched dinosaur movies and have remained awe struck that they have not regained a sense of reality. They have referred back to the Word, a very noble act, to see if these things were so. But to their dismay, pterodactyls or pterosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, and etcetera just were not there.
These people are in the height of wickedness, and they do not know it. The Word said, “the righteous shall live by faith and not by sight” (Habakkuk 2:2-4). A person living by faith knows he can do anything, yet knows too that until Jesus Christ comes again faith will suffice only so that we “know in part and we prophesy in part. But when the perfect comes the partial will pass away” (1 Corinthians 13:9-10). Faith can only reveal part of God’s greatness which means what we discern of His face today is just but suggestive of the real one. Still, faith should suffice for us as it was in His Word that His “grace is sufficient for you” (2 Corinthians 12:9). The wicked will insist to live by sight in this life and thus no satisfaction shall ever come to them. Nothing is right. Everything is put in question. But the wicked or faithless will forever fail to “…draw near to the throne of grace and thus receive mercy and grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). The faithless shall receive no answer and satisfaction.
Be awed by Him for the things He had done, be not awed by the creation. The Lord had set the world a stage for everyone to witness His greatness. Faithful living is thus, an everyday anticipation of great and greater things to come. The Lord declared, “…you will see greater things than this” (John 1:50). It is His job to reveal all this things to us in His own appointed time. For those who believe, their task is to tell of it from day to day.
If all this awesome creations were not all named in the Word then I am just glad they are revealed today. At the same time, I am more excited for those beautiful and awesome creatures yet to be discovered and yet to arise.
In conlusion there must be an aged rule called Theory of intrigue . This stated that great he becometh is the one who sayeth anything about the great. If you want to come out big then set your sights on the great. Just come out saying anything whether in agreement or against that whom you judge to be great and you will turn great yourself. Now I guess everybody knows why I am writing this article, but I suppose that in this, I am doing something right for once. Thus, in parting I would like to relate part of Joshua’s valedictory address to the Israelites of old, “And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” ( Joshua 24:15 ).
