Wholly to the atheists
Soul Snack 158/11 ... Wholly to the atheists
Did you know that no-one is born an atheist? Atheism is the deliberate choice to divine rejection.
In Florida an atheist created a case against Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and observances of their holidays. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.
The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "case dismissed!"
The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling,"Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays?"
The judge leaned slowly forward in his imposing chair saying, "But you do. Your client is woefully ignorant."
The lawyer responded, "Your honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; (Eccl 3:11a)
The only way to become wholly a fool is to extinguish the intuition of eternity God has planted in every soul and then deny the witness of what he sees.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Rom 1:18-20)
