I am sure you know this title is strictly tongue-in-cheek.  On the other hand, though, you may not have heard of National Atheists’ Day.  I have no way of knowing if the following really happened, but it should have.  For now, we will just accept it as a story that someone made up.

FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY

In Florida, an atheist created a case against Easter and Passover holy days.  He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and the observances of their holy days.  The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days, and so the case was brought before a judge.  After listening to a passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel and declared “case dismissed!” The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling saying, “Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case?  The Christians have Christmas, Easter, and other such holidays.  The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur, and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays.”  The judge leaned forward in his chair and said, “Oh, but you do; your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant.”  The lawyer said, “Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.”  The judge said, “The calendar says April 1st is April Fools’ Day.  Psalm 14:1 states, ‘The fool says in his heart, there is no God.’  Thus, it is the opinion of this court that, if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool; therefore, April 1st is his day.  Court is adjourned.”

A NATION OF FOOLS

There can be little doubt that we have become a nation with a majority of fools.  I understand that most of them would not claim to be atheists, but even this rabble category is growing.  The fact is that most of the people we know live as if there is no God, which makes them “practical atheists”.  From that perspective, it could be said that the majority of the people in our country are atheists.

It is very easy to confirm this argument – just listen to the media, entertainment crowd, business community, academia, religion, the courts, and government.  Almost every conversation and report makes it clear that man has become the god of our society.  Not only has human reason become the authority of our culture, but it has invaded the churches.  The theology of man is not only prominent, it is the standard; and it will not tolerate the voice of those who are truly biblical Christians.  Truth as defined by the Sovereign Creator is ridiculed and shouted down in every venue.  The only arguments that are given any value are those from the atheist majority who have chosen finite man to be their god.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

There are several reasons why the practical and stated atheists have won the day, but the number one culprit is state education, which is also where their victory is most evident.  A cursory study of our public schools at every level of education produces an irrefutable illustration of the problem.  While academia touts its open mind and ability to think critically, the evidence is against them; they have no room or tolerance for anything that flows from the true God.

Before you get all bent out of shape about that, please know that I am fully aware of, and thankful for, the tiny minority of believers in the system who try their best to be faithful to the eternal, infinite God.  Every little victory has worth; but we have lost the battle, and it’s time to admit it.  The atheist (man is god) theology is taught every day in the majority of classrooms.  There is no room in most of these educational settings for prayer, the Bible, and the real God.  Such falsehoods as evolution, Mother Nature, and a lot of assorted psychobabble are the rule of the day.  The religion and theology of the atheist is freely taught, and it has been successful.

WHO PAID FOR THIS?

The rise and great growth of this false religion has been made possible by the wrongful use of our tax dollars.  Biblical Christians have been forced to pay for the dissemination of this sad farce, as well as the teaching of other religious beliefs.  These Philistine schools have taught the children of true faith to think like” worldlings”.  A majority of the teachers in the state system are spiritually dead and so are incapable of communicating what God wants His children to know.  God specifically prohibits the taking of advice from those who are spiritually and morally deficient (Psalm 1).

The arguments of believers on this subject are sure signs that the dominant atheist religion has reached deep into our own Christian community.  Some will argue that these unbelievers are intellectual and smart.  Of course they are intellectuals, but they are intellectual pagans.  Other believers argue that in secular things it doesn’t matter who does the teaching, and here you have another answer: for the believer, there is nothing that is not sacred.  For us, every thought is sacred before God (I Cor. 10:5). This is what I meant by people in our crowd who have been taught to use human reason as the final authority rather than the Word of God.  Why not admit it?  They are in the majority, and most of us don’t even know why we lost.  And so, “Happy Atheists’ Day” to you!
