Three times the Psalms speak of a fool or the wicked say, "There is no God." (Psa. 10:4/Psa. 14:1/Psa. 53:1) A person who does not believe in the Almighty Jehovah God is called corrupted in both deeds and thought.
Here is what is amazing about those who profess there is no God. No one is born an atheist! People choose to become atheist just as people choose to believe. Many an atheist try to deny "faith" but what they fail to recognize is that atheism is a belief system! It requires their faith placed in something that God does not exist.
What makes a person turn to such extremes to denying the existence of God? There could be several but one of their major ideas is because all the pain and corruption in the world has led them to "believe" that there could be no God to allow all this evil. In their mind, if God were all powerful and He sees everything, why would He not use His power and all knowing insight to deal with all this hurt and corruption? Here is where they miss the point. If there is no God, how did they come up with the idea that evil actually exists? What process can be use to distinguish good from evil? There has to be a standard somewhere set in order for man to know what is good and evil. That means there is a belief system behind their denial!
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." (Rom. 1:20) God made it evident to man He exists. Just look at His divine nature. Every single day, in the east and west the sun rises and sets. God never fails in this. Look at the storms and natural disasters proving the power of God is greater than man. In fact, God made it evident "within" man that He exists (Rom. 1:19). The result? God sees man as without excuse. God holds man accountable for his conclusions and actions.
David was right when he said: "The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God.'" God holds man accountable and because of all the evil and corruption, only through Jesus will man escape. I pray we aren't fools!
