Religion and the Sabbath-Sunday Worship Part 12 – Atheist

When our minds realize some level of reality, we will be awakened from a deep sleep and realize how much we missed the truth about God’s existence and love and care for all the earth’s inhabitants. It hurts to hear that with all the proven facts from the Archaeologist, Cosmologist/ Astronomer, who have first-hand knowledge of space, which includes the stars, the moon, the sun, the planets, and the galaxies above us, and likewise see the wonders of the universe. Though what they missed to report is the signs that they observed the perfect distances of the planets, the sun, and the moon to the earth, and just a little heavenly dot that the sun getting closer to earth can destroy all the living things, including humans to untraceable species.

If the unbelief will only pause for a minute and meditate with a pure heart, they may hear God talking to their souls. Some already harden their hearts, dispelling their consciousness or subconscious beliefs that God exists, and they are more to avoid believing even though they sometimes struggle with what they feel about it. Believers sometimes overdo their godly work and charge the unbelief with the spirit of lawlessness. The counterclaim is that there are more violent Christians that you will read and view on the news network than the unbelief. We must accept our aggressiveness to express that the truth is on our side; instead of giving us a chance to be heard, we push them away.

Doing evangelistic work is indeed not an easy task and is worthy of compensation. We will get more rejection if they sense that we are not worthy of spending time with us—humbleness, work, and respect. If we cannot let them join us in believing in God, then so be it. We don’t have to argue or squeeze their neck to show that we are ready to fight. Our attitudes and characters count. Once they gave us a chance to preach the word, consider it, and a job well done, at least you have planted a seed that can be harvested when the time comes. We represent God. We are walking advertisements of His holiness, and if we act arrogantly, what do you expect to get in return?

Jesus said: Not to seek better accommodations; if they don’t accept what they heard, they continue moving to the next person or house. Jesus meant that you could not force someone to accept what you believe. The more they insist, the more they resist. If there is hesitation, give them time and come back later. Then, when the Spirit of God starts to move them, they will be moved and come to the awareness that what they believe will not last a long time, and they will find God is in their heart even before they are born again.

Acknowledge God; He will acknowledge you and give you wisdom when you ask. Atheism is not a religion like Buddhism, so we can be God’s believers and enjoy the practice of happy and peaceful living. However, some pagan practitioners still believe in God. Though Atheists believe in Darwin’s theory about evolution, there is no concrete support among the majority of scientists, so it is still subject to discussion in the absence of aggressive arguments and debate.

The unbelief can claim that evolution can explain creation, and cosmologists can testify to the signs and wonders of the universe. The Big Bang theory lost its glamour many years ago, so let the power of the Spirit of the Holy One be our guide to show us the path to living side by side harmoniously with one another while waiting for the time when the curtain of this stage called earth goes down. We need God, and we do not need the existence of the fittest. We don’t need the existence of another god, like the God of the wicked. We are satisfied to have God that is merciful and graceful, God that loves to forgive. God is good. God is love. Therefore God, who is a Spirit exists in our hearts.

Though the unbelief does not believe in our God, they may also not believe in the Bible. I will quote it anyways.

Psalm 82 says, “They do not know or understand; they wander in the darkness; all the earth’s foundations are shaken. Therefore, I have said, ‘You are gods; you are all sons of the Highest.’ But like mortals, you will die, and like rulers, you will fall.”

God is all in all.

The literal definition of “atheist” is “a person who does not believe in the existence of a god or any gods”—Merriam-Webster Dictionary.
