Have you ever met an atheist? An atheist believes that there no God. Now a Christian would never be guilty of being an atheist, but many Christians are guilty of being practical atheists. Practical atheism does not believe there is no God, practical atheism lives as if there is no God. An atheist does not pray, and so many Christians don't pray. An atheist doesn't read the Bible, and so many Christians don't read their Bible. An atheist walks by sight, not faith, and sadly, many Christians do the same thing. If those similarities are too close for comfort, I want you to confess it as sin to God and ask the Lord to change your heart. He is there for you this day and every day. Now that’s real hope.
