Dennis Prager… who is no fool…
When I was a Bible school student at Christ for the Nations in Dallas some years ago, I had an Israeli friend who called herself an “atheist.” We had many long talks about “God,” “Jesus,” and the Bible.
I will never forget once riding a ski lift in Winterpark, Colorado, with her… the beautiful, snowy mountains under and above our feet took our breath away. We were engulfed in the stunning loveliness of nature. To which my friend exclaimed, “This is truly God’s country!” I looked at her and said, “I thought you did not believe in God.” She only looked away. Then she brightened and said, “Well today, I believe in God.” We both laughed!
The beauty of the snow and mountains around us compelled us to believe… God was shouting to us that He existed. And we both heard his voice that day.
My husband and I just saw Ben Stein’s movie, “Expelled,” and we heard the famous scientist, Dawkins, state that a firm belief in the theories of Darwinism does perpetuate atheism.
Below is a snippet of one of the debates between Dennis Prager, Jewish conservative, syndicated talk show host, columnist, and ethicist, and Christopher Hitchins, atheist, British American author and journalist. Hitchins is infamous famous for his best-selling book, “God is not Great: How Religion Poisins Everything.”
Dennis loves debating atheists. One of his first questions is, “Often people who believe in God have doubts about His existence.” Do you as an atheist ever doubt your position that God does not exist?”
Dennis says that of all the atheists he has debated, he has never heard one admit to doubting their stance on the non-existence of God.
I wonder if all of them really never doubt or are too proud to admit it.
It is human nature to doubt from time to time. Sometime I doubt that my husband loves me. It is totally crazy, but the thought enters and then leaves when I count up the reasons that he does. It seems so out-of-touch not to doubt the non-existence of God, with the many signs of His existence in the earth and heavens.
I believe that God is speaking all the time… drawing us to Himself… through nature, through circumstances, through current events… and His Word does tell us that it is “the fool who has said in his heart ‘there is no God.'”
