The Fool’s Holiday!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 1, 2019

         DID YOU KNOW THE NAME OF AN ATHEIST IS IN THE BIBLE? IT’S FOUND IN PSALM 14:1: “THE FOOL HAS SAID IN HIS HEART ‘THERE IS NO GOD.’” SO HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S DAY TO MY ATHEIST FRIENDS. TODAY IS YOUR NATIONAL HOLIDAY.

         I HEARD RECENTLY FROM A FRIEND WHO BRINGS UP THE FAMILIAR QUESTIONS. IF GOD IS A LOVING GOD WHY THE HOLOCAUST? WHY DO CHILDREN DIE? WHY DO PEOPLE SUFFER?

         THESE ARE THE WRONG QUESTIONS. THE RIGHT QUESTION IS: WHY SHOULD A HOLY GOD ALLOW SINNERS SUCH AS ME INTO HEAVEN?

         THERE ARE ANSWERS TO ALL OF AN ATHEIST’S QUESTIONS, BUT INFORMATION IS NOT SUFFICIENT FOR BELIEF, OTHERWISE EVERYONE WOULD BELIEVE BECAUSE THE SAME INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE TO ALL.

         ONLY THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN BRING SOMEONE TO FAITH IN JESUS. PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME, “HOW DID YOU BECOME A BELIEVER?” MY RESPONSE: THE SAME WAY EVERYONE ELSE DOES.

         THERE IS SO MUCH WE DON’T KNOW AND CAN NEVER KNOW ABOUT GOD, ESCEPT HIS NATURE. HE IS HOLY AND TRUE. KNOWING THAT, WE CAN TRUST HIM FOR UNANSWERABLE QUESTIONS BECAUSE GOD’S WAYS ARE NOT MAN’S WAYS AND NEITHER ARE HIS THOUGHTS OUR THOUGHTS. ALL QUESTIONS WIL BE ANSWERED SOMEDAY, BUT BY THEN THEY WON’T MATTER BECAUSE WE WILL SEE HIM AS HE IS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
