Atheism of the Heart

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God,’ They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; there is no one who does good.” (Ps 53:1)

Statistics show that intellectual atheism is a very small percentage of the population in America (around 3.1% at last count). However, the 53rd Psalm makes it clear that there is another type of atheist that ALL of us are from time-to-time: the practical atheist.

The practical atheist may intellectually accept God’s existence, but then live like he doesn’t exist. Like the man that built bigger barns in Luke 12:16-20 – we reason in our hearts that our interests, our plans, and our desires are the center of the universe. We live like we are gods and He doesn’t exist.

But remember – there is a day of reckoning coming. We all must die and meet our Maker. It is foolish to ignore what cannot be avoided.

“And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment” (Heb 9:27)
