Like TNT, the Biblical word “fool” is a powerful word that must be used with extreme care and caution. Jesus solemnly warns against its misuse in Matthew 5:22. In the eyes of God, a fool (Greek word—moros) is a spiritual moron. Only a moron thinks that God will cease to exist and no longer be a rewarder of human behavior should he decide that he does not want to believe in Him.
The truth about atheism is that it is the result of a corrupt heart that desires to do abominable works (Psalm 14:1). Atheism is not the logical outcome that inevitably results when valid reasoning is applied to irrefutable evidence. Rather, it is the whitewash that is used to cover the god of self. It is the camo used to veil the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life that rages within the atheist’s heart. Humanist Aldous Huxley stated it most succinctly and accurately: “We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom.”
Being “one nation under God” has been, is, and always will be repulsive to everyone who wants to do what is right in his own eyes.
