For awhile I believed that those 17 teenagers who all thought that getting pregnant at the same time would be a really great idea were the stupidest people on the planet. I guess not. I saw a YouTube post a couple days ago. It proves that there are at least two people who are even dumber. First, the atheist who showed off his "brilliance" on YouTube and second the person who tried to promote this nonsense on her blog. My impression of what the kid on YouTube had to say?
Spoken like a true intellectual infant. The thing about atheists who make these kinds of arguments, the thing that is so striking is their naivety, puerility and dulled thinking. Sure they're proud and arrogant. Show me an atheist who isn't. ("I'll do away with the idea of a Creator God in five minutes?" Paleez!!)
Regardless, it's their pride and arrogance in the face of overly simplistic thinking that makes the irony of all this so sweet. People like this kid are so confident in their intelligence that they fail to ask the most important question of all. It's a question that is sitting right under their noses and they can't even conceive of its existence.
Like teenagers who think they alone have discovered the joys of sex, these narcissistic personality disordered individuals seem to think that they are the only ones who have grappled with these issues. Atheists trot out their thoughts on omnipotence and omniscience, justice and free-will choice as though no one else has sat up at night sorting these things out. And what these self-absorbed people really can't conceive of happening is that billions of people, considered by the atheist as h/her inferior have come upon an explanation to this pseudo dilemma. In sweet justice, it's those who are destined to die as God's enemies who will never understand this simple explanation; an explanation that makes perfect sense once you hear it.
For what it's worth, I'm certainly not going to push that particular pearl onto the individuals represented in that blog.
Beyond that, the beauty of being in an intimate, healed and forgiven relationship with Creator God is that He explains to anyone with the ability to hear:
- I will rescue those who are not looking for Me,
- I will love those who hate Me, and
- I will make peace with those who are My enemies while showing to them the enormity of My Grace and Mercy as contrasted by the destruction of those who deserve destruction. Romans 10:22,23.
- The rebellious cannot complain because they are in fact guilty of rebellion.
- The saved cannot boast because they have done nothing to deserve salvation.
Narrow minded atheists ask: "Why did God create billions of people who are destined to be eternally separated from Him?"
Open minded people ask: "Why did God, in the form of His Son Jesus forgive evil by taking His own punishment and suffering His own wrath for the horrible act of continued rebellion against a Creator God who is perfectly pure, holy, righteous, just, merciful, slow to anger, filled with great patience, filled with grace and abounding in Love? Why did God provide a path to forgiveness for every human being on earth since we are all guilty of participating in the murder of His Son Jesus? More than that: Why is God saving for eternity in paradise, Billions of people who should have been eternally separated from Him?
That is love!!!
