Athiests Advertising on London Buses

Photo source: BBC News

Buses in London will soon be decorated with advertisements saying "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life." In other words--eat, drink, and be merry. The British Humanist Society has raised a considerable amount of money in order to promote their philosophy that there is no God.

In an effort not to offend religious people, they added the word "probably." I find that interesting. There "probably" is no God? I challenge them to think about "what if you are wrong?" The Bible tells us that the fool hath said in his heart there is no God.

I would not want to live in a world that didn't have God. Everything that is beautiful, good, virtuous, and pure is from the nature of God. He is merciful, loving, and satisfies the longing soul. Man has made a mess of what God has designed, yet God gets a lot of the blame.

The farther away man gets from God and the truths of the Bible, the worse our world is becoming. Families are falling apart, killing one another (literally). Mothers are killing their babies, kids in the school yard are shooting each other, and the hearts of man are growing colder and colder. Do you really want to live in this kind of world?

The eat, drink, and be merry type of life is empty at best. As a pastor's (missionary's) wife, I get to hear all the heartache and suffering from people who have chosen that route. Lives that have been ravaged by what they thought were "good" times but have led them down a road of destruction. The party scene is not where true peace and happiness is found.

Who knows, maybe these signs will actually make people think. If there "probably" is no God, according to them, then on the flip side "there probably is a God." What if God exists in the part that you don't know for sure? I would rather live my life believing there is a God, than in the other side that says there isn't.

i've been reading a few of George MacDonald's novels recently and those two have dealt a lot with believing for yourself that there is a God--not just going with the flow because your parents believed it, and not turning your back on "religion"--and then basing the way you live off of that. How often, I wonder, does my life display an attitude of unbelief in God? I hope I can be a clear testimony to the world that there is a righteous and loving God before Whom we all will stand one day.

That's astounding that they can do that. It will be happening in America soon!
