The definition of atheism is “an absence of belief in the existence of deities” (by Wikipedia), or the lack of belief in a supreme God or gods. The American Atheists (atheists.org) states “Atheism is not a belief system nor is it a religion.” The American Atheists shows from a recent survey that there are nearly 26% of Americans who are atheists. The agnostics believe “that the existence of God, of the divine or the supernatural is unknown or unknowable…Human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify either the belief that God exists or the belief that God does not exist” (by Wikipedia). The American Humanist Association (americanhumanist.org) is a society that has been in the US for over 75 years states “We strive to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted and respected way to live life.” The American Humanist Association also have an international Darwin Day for celebrating the life of Charles Darwin (Father of Evolution and man came from monkey beliefs). There are about 15% of Americans who claim to be agnostics. The combined 26% atheists and 15% agnostics provides a total of 41% of Americans that do not believe in a god or that a supreme being exists. This is very sad! There is also a rise in Americans that do not believe or associate with any religious affiliations or beliefs, illustrated by ScientificAmerican.com. This may be the major contributor to the rapid decline of professing Christians in America, discussed by PewForum.com. The News Gallup also shows a sharp decline of over 20% in church memberships over the past 2 decades in the US. How much more will the church decline in America and be taken over by atheism, agnostics, and other false religions? See the earlier post God Will Judge America With Wrath If We Do Not Repent.
James, one of Jesus’s apostles, explains in the scriptures (Holy Bible) that we who believe that there is one God is good and we do well for even the demons believe and tremble – James 2:19. Even the evil forces of darkness in this world that go against God’s plan and His word believe that there is one God and one Jesus (See an earlier post on Even the Demons Believe in God and His Son Jesus and Tremble). The bible tells us that we are all sinners (all humans in the flesh), whether we are Atheists, Agnostics, Catholics, Christians, Jewish, Muslims, Mormons, etc. The apostle Paul in Romans 6:23 states, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Jesus, God’s only Son, also stated while He was on this earth over 2,000 years ago in the gospel John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through Me.” As the bible tells us that Jesus is the only way to heaven, it also tells us that there will be deceivers and false doctrines that will rise up to mislead many down the dark path and eventually will be doomed to the fire as we read in Matthew 7:15-20, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn-bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” The false teachers and their deceptions are anything that goes against the truth, which is God’s word and that Jesus died for all to save us from condemnation and destruction. These false prophets and teachers will receive swift destruction as we read in 2 Peter 2:1-3, “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master (Jesus) who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.” If atheists and agnostics continue to believe that there is no God, and continue to deny God’s word and never accept Jesus as their savior, according to the bible, they are all doomed for eternal destruction. The bible states that they (and all unbelievers) are doomed for eternal hell and destruction as we read in Romans 2:5, “But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.” Also, the bible teaches that we are without excuse to not believe in a supreme God since everyday we see God’s power and divine nature as we read in Romans 1:20, states “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” The bible tells us that the heavens were created by God as written in Psalms 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” Also, the bible teaches us that we are foolish if we say and believe that there is NO God, as we read in Psalms 14:1, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.”
The bible tells us (Christians) to NOT take part in the works of the unbelievers but to expose them by revealing the truth as we read in Ephesians 5:11, “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” This is the reason for explaining the truth and that there is hope for all atheists, agnostics, and unbelievers (non-Christians) to be able to obtain true salvation and to be saved from eternal hell and destruction through Jesus Christ (the true Messiah!). The gospel of John tells us about receiving salvation through God’s only Son Jesus in John 3:36, “He who believes in the Son (Jesus) has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” All we have to do is to pray to Jesus and call upon His name and ask Him to save us! See an earlier post explaining how to obtain salvation through the sinner’s prayer: “Will You Go To Heaven When You Die?”

Do you know where you will spend eternity after you die on earth? Will Jesus be your Lord and Savior or your eternal judge – John 3:15-21, Romans 2:16, 2 Timothy 4:1? Jesus says He is the narrow gate to heaven where it is difficult to find and only a few will enter by it where many will enter the easy, wide and broad gate that leads to Hell and destruction – Matthew 7:13-14. Will you experience the second eternal death (spiritual death) – Revelation 2:11, Revelation 20:6, Revelation 21:8? Do you know for sure that you are written in the eternal Lamb’s Book of Life – Revelation 3:5, Revelation 20:12-15? The place called Hell is NOT a myth and is very real and an extremely scary place – Watch this Video!
