But enlightened mankind rejects Genesis and hasn’t the foggiest idea who laid what when. They don’t know where they came from, what they’re doing here, or where they are ultimately going. They do know that they are going to die, yet they don’t know what causes death, what happens after death, or what to do about it.
They don’t even know what makes a murderer murder. Experts have studied the profiles of multitudes of murderers so that we can better understand why they kill. With more than 600,000 who have committed murder (just in the U.S. since 1970) to study, they should have come up with a clear and common profile. But they haven’t. This is because they consider themselves too wise to believe the Book. It says the common denominator is that they have a human nature, and that nature is inherently evil.
The Bible also says that the wisdom of this world is “foolishness” (Greek moros; “stupidity”) with God. It also says that when men profess themselves to be wise, they become fools (stupid). I have seen this often, when atheists attempt to discredit those who believe the Bible by quoting history books that were written around the time of Christ. They blindly believe the historical recordings of men without a second thought.
The Bible calls those who deny a Creator a fool (stupid). Only dim-witted folks would say that a painting didn’t have a painter, that a building didn’t have a builder, and that creation had no Creator. These same folks often have blind faith in the theory of evolution. They believe a theory as though it were fact, and they look down on people who have a trust in God. As Napoleon said, they believe anything “as long as it’s not in the Bible.” This is because it is a moral book. From Genesis to Revelation, it accuses us of sin.
