I once read this brain teaser: “Johnny’s mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child’s name?” It should only take about 10 seconds to figure this out. But it exemplifies how oft times in life the answer is right before us but because we see only with our imagination instead of our minds, the answers do not come quickly. I read this posting by a young lady who said: I’ve been an atheist for going on four years now and I feel so free now. May god strike me dead on then spot if I am not serious. I have told many folks that I do not believe in a god and then usually invite the strike down from god. Haven’t had anyone turn away yet or jump back from what they think is coming.” What this poor creature does not realize is that if there really is no God, then why is she asking Him to strike her dead? And if He did strike her dead, what would that prove? It would only prove that God is not patient with foolish people. But He is patient, because His Word has already said: “Only fools think there is no God” (Psalm 14:1).
