From a spiritual perspective, atheists live perpetually in opposite day.
“When you seek Me with all your heart, THEN I will be found by you.”
Instead of seeking God, even to just see IF He exists, atheists demand a sign of His existence.
I can’t tell you how many atheists have said in all seriousness, “Why can’t Jesus just appear in front of me? Then I’ll believe.”
Atheists do just the opposite of what God says it will take for us to find Him.
Is this an accident? I think not.
