There is no God! This is the cry of many in the world today. Whether the cry comes from the atheist (who believes in no God), agnostic (who believes in a higher power, but doesn’t recognize Christ as that higher power), pagan (believing in many higher powers but none supreme or humanistic (believing themselves to be gods). For whatever the reason most do not believe in one true God reigning above all.
The cry that there is no God is directly connected to many problems in society today. We as Christians see this much more so around our religious holidays. As I write this Easter is just around the corner and we are beginning to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. One town has taken the word Easter out of its annual Easter egg hunt. This is not the first time we have seen this behavior. Groups all around our nation use this time to attack Christianity and it’s followers. We may not shed blood due to lawsuits, but as the saying goes “The pen is mightier than the sword”.
Christian, the enemy has a plan for the United States of America. Replace God with government. Americans are not anti God. Whether they practice their religion or not for the most part, we live and let live. The enemy doesn’t need a large anti God group to cry out about how religion offends them though. A small group of loud and well-funded citizens can persuade the government that our voices silenced for the greater good. Our need for politically correctness slowly takes precedence over our freedom of religion. Eventually, we have a society where there is no God. When there is no God the next most eternal thing becomes the most important. In our case, government.
Paul wrote in Romans 1:
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness,19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.20 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 people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.T
The best thing we can do is stand firm in our beliefs. We don’t need nonbelligerent but also be not ashamed of the gospel that bring salvation to a lost and hurting world. Easter is almost here. Celebrate Christ and His love for you. Invite someone to share in that celebration with you.
