If you have been reading on my site, or have done research yourself, you might wonder, like I do, why we have atheists in the world. With so much evidence for God’s existence, with the very intuitive belief that humans show toward the transcendent, why do we still have people who deny the existence of God?
Paul writes in Romans 1:18-20 that the evidence for God is clear. He states that from the creation we should have a knowledge of God’s existence. He goes on to say that individuals who do not recognize God exists will have no excuse when they stand before God. The evidence is so clear that no one is able to deny God’s existence.
So why do we have atheists?
Paul states we have atheists because man suppresses the truth about God (Romans 1:18). God’s truth is evident but man does not want to accept God’s truth so we suppress the knowledge of God that can be clearly seen. In its place we attempt to create idols that can explain the evidence we see (is this not clearly seen in the new god of Naturalistic Science).
The saddest part of all of this is at some point if individuals continue to suppress the truth of God. God will give them up. At some point God allows them to have full assurance of this worldview with the results being the degradation of society.
We have atheists because people choose to suppress truth.
