Romans 1:20 (NIV)
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Our Success Scripture this week intimates that people have no excuse to deny the existence of God. God not only has made Himself known through His creation, but He has also put a moral compass inside every human being. Every human being knows, innately, the difference between right and wrong.
In our book, Beyond Positive Thinking: Success and Motivation in the Scriptures, we talk about the difference between positive thinking and faith in God. Positive thinking is what atheists use to be more successful. They refer to this practice as the Law of Attraction. In the book, The Secret, Rhonda Byrne and her faculty state that what you think will be attracted to you. This practice is mere positive thinking.
Then Rhonda and her faculty make a radical, but false statement in The Secret on page 164. The statement is: “You are God…” Then on page 183, she makes this statement: “You are the master of the Universe.” Atheists have faith and they exercise faith regularly. Their faith is in the god of self – You! Their mantra is: You are God. Unfortunately, no matter how confident you may become, you are not the master of the Universe and you are still not God.
Atheists embrace humanism. Humanism implies that you are God; therefore, atheists believe in God – the God of self (you)! Here is the reason why atheists believe in God: Humanism implies that you are God. Humanists not only deny the existence of God, but by default, they set themselves as god of their own world.
The bottom line for the Atheist is the determination of who has the right to determine good and bad, right and wrong, righteousness and unrighteousness. Since Adam and Eve chose to determine good and evil for themselves apart from God (in Genesis 3:5), people since then have been doing the same. The Atheist is a person who is their own God. They will determine right and wrong for themselves; thereby making themselves God. This is the main reason Atheists really do believe in God – because they are their own god!
