While it is true that there are evil that throughout the history of humanity were done by some people who “allegedly” are believers in the existence of God, the worst of evil were done by those who denied the existence of God.

PSALMS 53:1 
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

This was the observation of the psalmist David. The same observation was written by another biblical writer many hundreds of years after David.

In Romans 3:10-18, the apostle Paul categorically stated:

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 
11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 
13 Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 
14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 
17 And the way of peace have they not known: 
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

In I Timothy 6:10 (ASV), the Apostle Paul explained that the love of money is a root of all evil:

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil: which some reaching after have been led astray from the faith, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

But Paul was consistent in saying that all evil come not only from the love of money as the verse says, the love of money is “a” root of all evil, not “the” root of all evil, because “the” root of all evil is denying God’s existence or not acknowledging the existence of God.

ROMANS 1:28-32 
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 
31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The Godless Hitler murdered millions of innocent Jews. While other tyrants confess that they know God, their acts of cruelty and injustice denies their claim.

TITUS 1:16 
They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

Polpot (an atheist, leader of the Cambodian communist movement known as the Khmer Rouge) has killed probably at least 1.5 million people and it may have been as 3 million. 

Joseph Stalin (an atheist, General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union’s Central Committee) is a tyrant who murdered millions of people. He began a series of ‘purges’ in which millions of people died. The purges are known as the Great Terror. The Soviet dictator said, “You know, they are fooling us, there is no God… all this talk about God is sheer nonsense.” – (E. Yaroslavsky, Landmarks in the Life of Stalin) 

Adolf Hitler (Nazi leader, no religious inclination) is the one responsible for the murder of some 6 million Jews during the World War II

Will the belief in the true God bring evil to humanity?

He said:

“Thou shalt not kill.” ( Exo. 20:13) 
“Thou shalt not commit adultery.” (Exo. 20:14) 
“Honor thy father and thy mother…” (Exo. 20:12) 
“Thou shalt no steal.” (Exo. 20:15) 
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;” (Ephe. 5:25)

Believing in the God who commands all these things will make the human society more humane. There is wisdom and prudence to believe in God as all areas of logic dictates than to deny His existence. Denying God is denying the principle of science and logic that nothing happens without a cause.

ROMANS 1:19-20 
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. 
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

The wonders of the created universe prove the existence of the Most Magnificent Creator. Denying God is denying the dictate of human conscience that there is Somebody greater than us (humans)!

ROMANS 2:14-15 
14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 
15 Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

The inability of a man to attain the stature that he perfectly wants to be, proves the fact that he was created by somebody higher in power than him; while understanding the purpose of the Creator, allowing the presence of infirmities in his being, will make him realize how great his Creator is.

ROMANS 9:20-21 
20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 
21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?

II CORINTHIANS 12:7-10 
7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 
8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

THERE IS PROBABLY NO GOD, IS AN ESCAPE FROM ALL REALITIES.

  1. Thanks be to God, for another enlightenment thru Bro Eli. We pray that atheists and agnostics spend some time to read Bro Eli's blogs and hear his preachings with open hearts and minds. They will surely see the glaring truth and reality that they are trying to escape from.

    What strikes me the most is how bro Eli used Adolf Hitler as an example. There are articles online that uses him as an example of a religious believer who murdered many people. What they forget is that, Adolf Hitler has no religious affiliation or inclination. This blog just reminded us of that fact.

    To God be the Glory!

    We miss you bro. Eli. May God permit us to see you again. I hope it will be soon.

  7. In the early 90's when I was still in the life insurance industry, I learned from one of our leadership meeting's speakers that there's a certain fluid in the brain that detects whether or not a person commits suicide. Thanks to the advent of modern technology!

    Speaking of GOD's existence, I've learned from Bro. Eli through the Bible, that nobody can deny GOD's existence as this fact has already been written and implanted in everyone's heart and mind through the things manifested... (Romans1:19-20)

    Interesting article from this week's blog!

  20. To deny God's existence, is a manifestation of being fool.
    How pity those atheists and agnostics are.

  21. YES! Very accurate, logical and with my conscience as a witness and even evidence I could say that it is true.There is Someone who gave me this feeling of guilt when I did wrong, leading me to confess it and take responsible of it and guiding me and encourages me to do what is only right and justice.
    Truly, denying God, is an escape from all realities

  23. thanks be to God. to God be the glory forever and ever.

    Napakarami talaga ng tao dito sa mundo ngayon ang hindi naniniwala sa Dios. Sa mga paaralan pa nga lamang eh may mga tao na kung akala mo eh may alam pag dating sa katwiran ng Dios. Napakamangmang naman nila at ang lakas pa nilang magyabang tungkol sa kanilang mga paniniwala na walang Dios na umiiral at sasabihin pa nila na sila ay mababait at sila ang tama. Di talaga nila nalalaman ang kanilang sinasabi. Di ko nalang sila kinakalaban at baka wala ring mangyayare kasi nga baka yurakan lang nila ang sasabihin ko. naka attain lang ng konteng talino eh nagyayabang na. Hope na sana ay maliwanagan sila balang araw. salamat po sa Dios.
