I recently had a discussion with an avowed Atheist who derided the idea of absolute truth. He said that there could be no absolute truth, everything changes and evolves. I stopped myself from informing him that what he just said was in fact a statement of absolute truth, exactly what he said could not exist. He went on to tell me that no true scientist can deny Darwinian evolution, essentially saying that despite any discovered, observable, and accepted evidence that is modelled on actual scientific practice, if it is presented by a scientist whose world view is founded on biblical truth, it is deluded and not scientific. Needless to say, it was quite a lively couple hours of conversation!
I continue to be amazed the lengths to which people go to deny a Creator. I realize that accepting a Creator also means being accountable to that Creator based on His revealed character and will. I find it reprehensible that good scientists, many of whom with the same or better qualifications as the so called “experts”, are dismissed and ridiculed because their evidence contradicts the status quo. It is frightening that so many humanist scholars are entrusted to “educate” each passing generation. They continue to indoctrinate unsuspecting students into a belief system that requires far more faith to adhere to than Christianity. It is no wonder that many people believe in no absolutes because their belief system must constantly change to counter the evidence that the Bible, the source of truth, and scientific evidence that supports it. True science must have unshakeable, immovable foundations, unfortunately their foundations are as sturdy as a house of cards going so far as to defy the accepted laws of physics.
I praise God for leading me to Himself and that my faith is built upon the Solid Rock, the Lord Jesus Christ. My friend with whom I was conversing aligned himself with the beliefs of a recognised and outspoken Atheist who, like virtually all Humanists, resorts to ridicule in order to defend his belief system. I doubt he knows this man personally but he trusts what he says and is comfortable in using his claims to justify his own beliefs. On the other hand, I know my Saviour personally and like the blind man in John 9, I can attest to what He has done in my life and so many others. Why should I believe Scripture and stand in its defense when questioned? Because like that blind man when he was questioned about Jesus answered, “Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.”(John 9:25) I trust God at His word when He says in Malachi 3:6, “For I am the Lord, I change not…”
I recently read a great testimony of a former Atheist, a person from the world of academia, who decided it was important to know and understand what she claimed to be. The indoctrinated, despite what they claim, have been trained not to think for themselves. They are expected not to question and “toe the line”, arms locked in rank with countless others who follow each other in the paths of death rather than follow the One who says that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I’ve included the link to her story, please pass it along to an Atheist you know. Who knows, they may just start thinking for themselves…
