Today is April Fool’s day. In the United States, that can mean only one thing — 2 Chronicles 7:14 is second in use only to Psalm 14.1.
You know, the verse that suggests fools say there is no god. Now, this doesn’t really point to atheism, because it is difficult to imagine atheism in the time this psalm was written. But, like Genesis 1 and other verses, they tend to take this one like it was written by the white guy next door.
And they gloss over Matthew 5.22 — the one where Jesus says you shouldn’t judge the soul of the person. They refuse to take this one hyper-literal, although, if we took it by the Good Samaritan standard, then shouldn’t we count everyone a brother, sister, neighbor friend?
Anyway, if you are one of those types of Christians who believe that today is National Atheist’s Day, then you need to check yourself before you wreck others.
