I Believe In Nothing
Faith is essential for a proper relationship with God. Without faith, it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6). Jesus’ own disciples, in the very midst of walking beside the Son of God, asked Him for more faith. Children of God have experienced miracles, been set free from sin, and grown in their relationship with God as a result of exercising their faith. Yet not everybody believes in God. No, there are those who have no desire to please God. Instead, they arrogantly proclaim, “I believe in nothing.”
“There Is No Creator”
Atheists declare with prideful yet unsubstantiated confidence that there is no Creator. They would have us believe that everything came out of nothing—the stars, the planets, the sun, and the moon came out of nothing. They propose that our own Planet Earth did not come into existence as a result of a divine decree but evolved over a vast amount of time. For them, everything came out of nothing. They literally believe in nothing.
Do They Really Believe In Nothing?
No, of course not. It takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does in the biblical account of creation. They would have us believe that somehow, in the distant past, the spark of life was produced when there was an electrical reaction between two molecules that just happened to bump into each other in the vast distance of nothingness. From this came all that we see around us. The obvious question needs to be asked, Where did the first two molecules come from? Matter cannot be created in a vacuum. The first law of thermodynamics states that you can convert energy into matter, but even the best scientists cannot create something out of nothing. To convert energy, it must first exist in one form or another. The law of conservation of mass says, “Matter can change form through physical or chemical changes. The same amount of matter exists before and after the change—none is created or destroyed.” That being the case, where did the first two molecules come from? It seems to me that it takes more faith to believe in evolution (devilution) than in a Creator.
“There Is No One To Help”
They proclaim that there is no one looking over us. There is no one you can turn to who can help you. If it is to happen, then you have to do it. When it comes to a higher power, they believe there is nothing or no one to place your faith in. Atheism sees man as the only and logical solution to man’s problems. Humanistic psychology teaches that man will progressively improve until all of man’s problems will be solved through man’s efforts. We will then experience a man-made utopia. Really? So far, man’s record is not good. The evidence shows that wickedness is on the increase. An apple left on the table for weeks does not improve but decays. Man cannot improve without God. He needs to be born again.
“They Are Without Excuse”
Paul addressed those who refused God in his day. “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Rom 1:18-22).
The splendor of creation points to the existence of God. The inner voice of the Holy Spirit speaks to them of the existence of God. Yet they choose to reject the revelation of God. It’s not that they don’t believe there is a God, but they know if they admit there is a God, then they have to admit their need of God. They have to admit that their lifestyle goes contrary to the edicts of a holy God. Instead of embracing a loving God’s solution to sin, they would rather embrace the sin itself. They would rather declare that they believe in nothing.
