You Know What?

alte6596873Big news!  I have been invited to Washington D.C. to meet with President Trump and a commission he is putting together on creativity.  I think I was selected because of this blog.  The president wants to find different ways to get young people to express themselves, to set goals, and have dreams to live for.  Okay, April’s fool.

To be honest, I have never understood this day.
It’s lying.

One year I was asked to be at a wedding.  I traveled hundreds of miles to get there and the next day, as I was on my way to where the event was to be held, it dawned on me the date was April 1st.  When I saw the young couple I said, “If this is an April fool’s joke you’re dead!”  They laughed and then assured me it wasn’t.  I guess it does make it easier to remember the wedding date.

You know what?  There are fools year round, not just in April, and people do foolish things all the time.  Believe it or not, I’ve been known to do a foolish thing here and there, but that’s another blog I don’t want to write!  The most foolish person is the one who does not believe in God.

“The fool says in his heart, there is no God.”
Psalm 14:1 (NIV)

There are people who say, “There is no God.”  I wonder what they will say when they stand in front of him?  How do they arrive to this opinion?  I’m not sure, but the Bible says God gave everyone a measure of faith.  I tend to think when these people boast about their opinion they have a measure of doubt.  I’m sure they hope they are right.

One might live like a fool, but you don’t have to die a fool.  You can believe in God, accept his Son, and then ask him to help your unbelief.  You know what?  He will.

  1. “The most foolish person is the one who does not believe in God.

    Well, you might want to ask someone who doesn’t believe in your god rather than making up nonsense.

    Most, if not all religions, claim that people who don’t agree with them are fools. So, we have Christians insisting that Muslims are fools, Muslims insisting Christians are fools, and ever other combination you can think of theist vs theist. You are all atheists; you have come to the conclusion that gods don’t exist, except yours of course. And generally, you came to that conclusion because of the same reason I have: no evidence to support claims.

    The bible says a lot of things and I’ve read it a couple of times. I do not recall a verse that says all people have faith. I do know of at least one that says they don’t. “3 Finally, brothers and sisters,[a] pray for us, so that the word of the Lord may spread rapidly and be glorified everywhere, just as it is among you, 2 and that we may be rescued from wicked and evil people; for not all have faith. ” 2 Thessalonians 3 And Romans 9 says that this god picks and chooses who it allows to accept it and then damns those it didn’t choose for no fault of their own.

    You might wonder what an atheist would say to your god in your end times fantasies. I would hold this god accountable for its incompetence. The god in the bible is nothing admirable, with its need for approving slavery and telling slaves to never seek freedom, when it commits and commands genocide and when it kills people for the actions of others. I’m not afraid of such a petty bogeyman.

    When I was losing my faith, I prayed for help. You know what? Nothing happened at all. Now the typical response of the Christian will be blaming me, not considering that their god is imaginary.

    As for the end times themselves, well, Christians have been claiming its coming for a couple of thousand years. I’ve ceased being concerned with such nonsense.

    • Thank you for reading the blog post. I apologise for not citing my reference for “a measure of faith”. It is Romans 12:3 For by the grace given to me I say to every one of you not to think more highly of yourself than you ought to think, but to think with sober discernment, as God has distributed to each of you a measure of faith.

      Thank you for sharing your views. Some of what you said I actually agree with, to a point. I have emailed you as well. I pray for you and I know that God does love you so much.
