A Letter to an Atheist


Atheists-right

You hate me because of my faith; but deep inside that is not really the problem. At the heart of your hate is your hate for God.[1] You don’t want me to spread my message of hope; but in your hypocrisy, you fight, not only against my God, but also to spread your atheist views.

         You want to set people free from religion; I want to set them free from the consequences of sin and give them hope through Christ. We both should be able to be free to do what we think is right for the world; but you fight against my right to do so.

         You want to prove everything through science, you demand evidence; you demand a sign, but the Lord will only show you one sign, the most ridiculous one, the sign of Jonah.[2]

         For some of you, your hate will last until the very last hour, your punishment for all eternity. For all eternity you will be expressing your hate against my God back and forth, back and forth… for all eternity. For all eternity you will be drinking from the bitter cup of your rebelliousness; for all eternity you will be burning and you will feel thirst without any possibility of drinking a glass of fresh water[3]. But the words of your mouth will be evidence of the righteousness of God. The words of your mouth will be evidence against you, for some of you will refuse to repent even in your torment and pain.[4]

         God gave you the freedom to follow or reject Him.[5] Then you use that freedom to blame every evil thing on God; the matter of suffering is your issue; it is not that you need evidence of His existence. God made his existence obvious[6], He gave you morals[7], He show you His power[8] and His authority as the Godhead[9]. You know of His judgments, but not only that you go against His righteousness; you made the decision to suppress His truth and promoted your demonic agenda.[10]

         The reality of the life, dead and resurrection of Christ is your scientific answer, but you live to mock Christ and to mock the story of God’s creation. You reject God’s knowledge in exchange for your foolishness.[11] The wrath of God is upon you.[12]

         You proposed for a divorce between science and God. Romans 1:22-23 describe your foolish arrogance, “Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.” (NKJV)

         It is my prayer that my love for you overcomes your hate for me and for my God. It is my prayer that the love of God arrest your heart and that you conclude, in your heart, that my God is good[13] and that His judgments are true and righteous[14]. It is my prayer that you repent for your blasphemies.

         It is my prayers that you realize that God’s ways are higher than our ways.[15] At the end of this dimension of life only God’s people will enjoy His glory, not because we are better, but because the holy sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. His humiliation is the heart of our salvation.[16]

         There is an end-time revival coming, the pouring out of God’s Spirit[17]. His Shekinah glory will fill the earth[18]. The last call for his salvation will come to an end. The time will come when He will no longer be found.[19] The closing of His time of grace and the manifestation of His judgment are quickly approaching. In the mix of your hostility I give you the Gospel, the good news that it does not have to end this way. God loves you! He is the redeemer, who will make all things right, but who will also judge all things.
