In the past, some atheists have looked at the evidence that we have regarding the Big Bang Singularity and said, “Well, all you have is enough evidence for a deistic god.”
And I think, “Fine. At least you’ve been partially honest with yourself.”
A deistic god is one who got the whole show started and then, more or less, left the building. This is simply not the case with Creator God as He is described in the Bible. God, as He is described in the Bible does not macro manage the universe. He micro, micro manages the universe. He knows the number of hairs on your head. He intervenes to the point of sacrificing Himself in your place so that you can avoid eternity in hell - if you want to. As is sometimes said, “God has a plan for your life.”
In fact Revelation 9:15 shows that God’s plan is right down to the hour.
“And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind.”
There is a “fixed day” coming when all of us will face judgement.
People know this. Based upon this knowledge we are called to make a choice.
As anyone who’s ever communicated with atheists knows, and as verses 20 and 21 of Revelation 9 show us, the gates of hell are locked from the inside. Despite all kinds of supernaturally caused natural disasters:
“They did not repent.”
“They did not stop worshipping demons.”
“They did not repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
Atheists ask for evidence but the truth of the matter is this. No amount of evidence will ever change minds that are determined to deny God’s existence; to reject His relevance in one’s life.
Their destiny is already set in place.
A Deistic God? Atheists should be so lucky!
