1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
An atheist is one who denies the existence of a deity or of divine beings.
Since its April Fool Day I thought I would share my desire to see the “fool” know there is a God.
Most of you have heard the story of the judge in Florida that snopes.com says is false. Snopes.com states however that “The power of illustrative anecdotes often lies not in how well they present reality, but in how well they reflect the core beliefs of their audience. Here is the post.”
In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation for Easter and Passover holidays and decided to contact the local ACLU about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidays while the atheists had no holiday to celebrate.
The ACLU jumped on the opportunity to once again pick up the cause of the godless and assigned their sharpest attorneys to the case. The case was brought before a wise judge who after listening to the long, passionate presentation of the ACLU lawyers, promptly banged his gavel and declared, "Case dismissed!"
The lead ACLU lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? Surely the Christians have Christmas, Easter and many other observances. And the Jews — why in addition to Passover they have Yom Kippur and Hanukkah . . . and yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday!"
The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said "Obviously your client is too confused to know about, or for that matter, even celebrate the atheists' holiday!"
The ACLU lawyer pompously said: "We are aware of no such holiday for atheists. Just when might that be, Your Honor?"
The judge said, "Well, it comes every year on exactly the same date — April 1st!"
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." Psalm 14:1, Psalm 53:1
HOORAY FOR THIS JUDGE
It is sad anyone would believe there is no God. Therefore I want to declare that Jesus is Lord and he died for the sins of even the “fool” who proclaims there is no God. I pray on this April 1, 2012 you repent of your sins and receive Jesus. Then you can celebrate Easter next week with Jesus in your heart. In reality I have never believed there is a true atheist but I know there is a true GOD.
“If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9
