Dear Pastor Andy, is cold the absence of Heat, like Atheists are the absence of God?
My Reply: Atheists are not the absence of God, for God is everywhere. One Psalmist wrote that no matter where we go, even to the deepest depths of the earth, we can’t escape the presence of the Lord.
Now Atheism, on the other hand, is the absence of believing in God’s existence. However, just because you don’t believe that God exists, doesn’t mean He doesn’t; and just because you don’t believe God’s not present, doesn’t mean He’s not.
