“Professing Themselves to be Wise”

By Irvin Himmel

In his letter to the saints at Rome, Paul wrote about the idolatry that engulfed the Gentiles. Men had been given opportunity to know God, but “they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things” (Rom. 1:21-23).

1. Some profess to know that God does not exist. A few years ago Charles Smith, President of the American Association for the Advancement of Atheism, was one of this nation’s champions of “no-God-ism.” Later, Mrs. Madalyn Murray O’Hair gained the dubious distinction of being the chief voice crying in America that there is no God.

Atheists and Atheism

Luther Blackmon
Berea, Ohio

Not having the moral strength to meet the demands of his Creator, an atheist tries to convince himself that there is no such Creator. This is like breaking the barometer to avoid the storm or shooting the diagnostician to cure the disease. Some have become atheists because they want to wave the flag of the intelligentsia (having been informed that most of the intelligentsia are in the camp of atheism) whether they qualify or not. So they read a few books on how man developed from the tiny, one-cell or two-cell amoeba up to the Edisons and Einsteins and decide that the theory of evolution must be true. It doesnt seem to bother them at all that this select group can offer no reasonable or sensible explanation as to how the one cell thing came to be, or, how it came to have life. Life comes from antecedent life. However, such trivial questions as the (a) origin of matter (b) origin of life (c) order in the universe (d) laws of nature (the atheist talks about the laws of nature, but denies that there was an intelligent law-maker) do not seem to bother him. All these obstacles the atheist brushes aside or ignores. He evidently thinks that if he will hold his head high enough, and try to look as smart as he thinks he is, and talk loud enough about the gullibility and credulity of these simple-minded Bible dreamers, that people will not notice the impotency, absurdity and inconsistencies of his theory.
