Happy Atheist’s Day!
“When the crowns of gold are laid before His feet
Then the worthy Lamb of God is a treasure we will keep
Some may call me foolish, some may call me odd
But I’d rather be a fool in the eyes of man than a fool in the eyes of God.”
Read all the lyrics here.
Over the past couple years I’ve seen several references to April 1st as Atheist’s Day. Given that it’s scriptural, I suppose it’s worth observing! 🙂
“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.'” (Psalm 14:1)
Many people today (including me) lament what seems to be an overwhelming increase in foolishness, whether of the political, economic, social or moral persuasion. We are living in times described so well by Paul in Romans. It’s no coincidence the rise of such foolishness has been concurrent with a decrease in belief in the Creator, or a willingness to listen to —and do –what He tells us in His word.
So enjoy the prankster’s favorite day (the blog owner takes no responsibility for any use of the contents of the preceding link!). But don’t fall for the ultimate prank: The Enemy’s desire that you believe there is no God and no divine accountability. The best April Fools Day gags have no long-lasting consequences. Not so with the foolishness described in Psalms – it has eternal implications! Satan wants nothing more than to include you in his original foolishness: self-centered rebellion against our own Creator. Thankfully, God’s provision of grace (which we just celebrated at Easter!) has made it possible for us to turn a different way.
And that’s no joke!
