Letter to an Atheist #2

How often do you think of God? How often do you weigh the consequences of your actions not with the blind scales of justice, but with God's uncovered scale of judgment. The notion that a person can live as they please and then die and be done is incorrect. To presume that God is not going to judge us for sin is unreasonable considering we as humans made in the image of God are very quick to point out and demand injustices committed against us be dealt with. Do you ever wonder when its quiet if you are wrong, if you are on the right path? I know that for the time being it is gratifying, but in the end will it be worth it? Do you sometimes think about Hell, and if there really is one? Do you prepare yourself just in case you go there? What will you do if there is a God and you must give an account for yourself, will you make the cut, will the balances fall in your direction?

"Sinners in hell are not the fools they were on earth; in hell they do not laugh at
everlasting burnings; in the pit they do not despise the words, “eternal fire.” The
worm that never dieth, when it is gnawing, gnaws out all joke and laughter; you may
despise God now, and despise me now for what I say, but death will change your
note." Charles Spurgeon

Is it that you disbelieve now, or is it that you still hold an inkling of truth that you merely keep cut low so as not offend your conscience? Will you take disbelief to the grave as a hypocrite with half of you yearning for repentence and the other half twisted and foul cursing the God that gives you breath to do it. Friend there is no more important time in your life than now to return to God. I fear that if you hesitate much longer even that grace will be removed from you.

Rest assured that your disbelief has not shaken the foundations of that ivory throne, take solemn notice that your petulance has not threatened the Creator, but past that hold it near to your heart that with each hateful, spiteful breath that you breath out towards God, you bring yourself one step closer to the dreadful day in which you will stand before him. It does not have to be so for as fierce as his judgment is, his mercy is tender.

2 Corinthians 6:2
(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

In Christ,
Nathan Hay
