A World Without God

Breaking news around the world, God is dead! It has been broad casted repeatedly, in the media, and in the market place. No one attended His funeral, or wake. He was buried in an unmarked grave. But around the world all the nations are celebrating His demise. The philosophers around the world are proclaiming a new age of social evaluations, and a new age of unity for all mankind.

Now there are small pockets in societies around the world that still report an occasional God sighting, just like Elvis fans have the sighting of their fallen hero. But the world only has to evaluate these followers’ action to see these sighting are just hoaxes.

Now that we are past fairy tales, how long must we wait for mankind to put away primitive behavior, like war, oppression, bigotry, poverty, pestilence, and crime. If there were no God, who prevented the human race from falling under the world rule of dark governments, like Nazism, Communism ‒ where groups of people were deemed vermin to humanity, and were put in death camps.

If God is dead, and the gates to our social evaluation is no longer chained up by a belief in God, why has the suffering of humanity become worse to the point of inability to survive? I believe this is the reason: when a world ceases to acknowledge God and give Him thanks, they take all the honor and glory that belongs to God, and claim it for themselves; Then the healing, provision, and protecting hand of God, turns into the hand of judgment and cursing.

The human race will never be able to reach or create the Promise Land, as long as God remains dead in their hearts.
