To look everywhere for help except to the only place where help can be found, and to do this with intent and forethought seems the height of insanity. Yet this is exactly what atheists do on a daily basis. In an apotropaic effort that seems more like psychopathy than anything else, atheists call for more science, more wealth, more physical health all in the belief that this will ward off the emotional and spiritual ills that plague humanity. Yet as Max Lucado correctly tells us:
“If our greatest need had been information -
God would have sent an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology -
God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money -
God would have sent us an economist.
Since our greatest need is forgiveness -
God sent us a Saviour.
God became like us
So that we could become like Him.
From Max Lucado - “When God Whispers Your Name"
What kind of a person would turn away from an offer like that?
