EVEN ATHEISTS AND SKEPTICS KNOW
Will Durant, historian, author of the eleven volume History of Western Civilization and or numerous other books was a professed atheist who made no secret of his religious skepticism. He was skeptical about something else too: Durant was convinced of the futility and fatality of any worldview, whether embraced by a nation or an individual, that has no room for God in it. In The Meaning of Life, he wrote:
“The greatest question of our time is not communism vrs. individualism, not Europe vrs.
America, not even the East vrs. the West; it is, whether man can bear to live with out God.”
Durant’s statement illustrates once again the convoluted thinking of professed atheists who are at the same time obsessed with the significance of a God they don’t believe exists. But the point here is that the most insightful intellectual atheists know that once God has been excluded from a life – be it an individual’s or a nation’s life – that life’s ability to function properly plummets and in the case of nations, it’s mortality rate skyrockets.
America today is a lesson in real time of how unbearable life can become for a nation without God. We are now ruled by a minority of people who by biblical and clinical definition, are sin-crazed fools; at the same time, we are immersed daily in an atmosphere of fantastical evil.
Can man bear to live without God? On an individual or national level, life is barely bearable without God and becomes more and more unbearable And when this life is over, what follows in terms of regret, suffering and eternal separation from God will forever be impossible to bear.
Because they are by nature separated from the life of God and spiritually “dead in trespasses and sin” (Rom. 5:12; Ps. 51:5; Eph. 2:1), men and women cannot enjoy life as God intended (John 10:10). They need to bring God into their lives and submit to His rule over their lives as quickly as possible. How is this done? Read Isa. 55:7, John 3:16-18; Rom. 10:9-13 and/or message me and I’ll help you all I can.
