I am often confused by the concept of atheism and ponder that there are those who actually reject the existence of God.
How can someone step back and look at the vastness of our world, the beauty and intricacies of nature, to see your own eyes in your child’s eyes and believe this is all an accident?
To me it borders on actual hatred for God as opposed to love of him. I believe even the unreached villager in Papua New Guinea acknowledges God.

I find the Bible to be so fascinating. Non-Christians or general non-believers often scoff at the Bible being accurate or true at all.
It’s fascinating how anyone could believe such an amazing work of literature written over 2,000 years ago and compiled by numerous authors all inspired by God can be so easily dismissed.
I am most surprised that some dismiss it when historically there is no doubt a man named Jesus lived and was crucified.
