In his last article Mr. Rush called our belief in God irrational. I would say that it is irrational to believe that human intelligence is the best thing since sliced bread. Look at history, Mr. Rush. The intelligence levels have DECREASED since evolution started being taught in our schools. Mr. Rush misinterprets the Bible by saying God is against art. Read it again, Mr. Rush, if you ever have. Look at the tabernacle and temple. There was much art in both of them and the temple of Solomon was considered the most beautiful building in the world. God told them what to put in those places of worship. God is an artist (His art is all around us and is us) why would HE be against creativity? Mr. Rush’s point on speech was a great one. The atheist’s belief that he can say whatever he wants to and shouldn’t have to worry about offending someone is anti-social. Yes, you have freedom of speech but that doesn’t mean you should say whatever you want, whenever you want. It’s called self-control and respect. In fact, Mr. Rush’s commandments seem to stem from a lack of control and understanding (i.e. # 5, 6, and 7). This, of course, is very revealing. Prior to the teaching of evolution and the growth in atheism this country was actually a very moral country. Since then it has become a country that says “If it feels good, do it.” Through the teachings of Evolution (you’re only a more-highly evolved monkey so act like an animal) and Atheism (There is no God to be accountable to, so do what you want) this country has devolved into what we see today.
I would like to offer my services to Mr. Rush to help him understand the Word of God. It does not hold a message of hatred and bondage but a message of God’s love and freedom from sin. Yes, God is a God of judgment but His patience with man is an example to all of us. Atheism is a religion. Atheism worships the human intelligence. We have seen where that has led this country. King David told us “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1a)
