What God Thinks of Atheism

God gives much more revelation about people who worship false Gods than He does about atheists.

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.” (Psalm 14:1-2)

This is repeated in Psalm 53:1:

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good.”

People are born with a tendency to sin:

“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned—or before the law was given, sin was in the world.” (Romans 5:12-13)

People are born sinners, but they are not born fools; they have to become fools.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.” (Romans 1:21-23)

People are not born atheists. They have to be taught to be atheists.

Many nations have endeavored to teach atheism. Most of these nations have been communist: Russia, China, Albania, North Korea, and Viet Nam.

Academia in England and the US is experiencing a surge of anti-Christian atheists. God says they become fools.
