Pastoral Nuggets: Pink Unicorns

I don’t believe pink unicorns exist on Mars.

In fact, I don’t believe pink unicorns exist on earth.

And if you really want to get down to it, I don’t believe they exist – period!

The natural consequence of my unbelief in pink unicorns is that my mind is not preoccupied with the thoughts of them. If you want to believe in pink unicorns, then that’s your business!

I don’t have a problem, per se, with a person believing that something doesn’t exist, or is not real.

However, what blows my mind is when atheists become evangelistic with their unbelief and they try to persuade others that something they believe doesn’t exist – doesn’t exist.

If I truly believe that pink unicorns don’t exist – then why in the world would I spend my time, resources, and make it my life mission to convince people that what I don’t believe exists – doesn’t exist?  (Mind boggling, isn’t it?) If I don’t believe something exists then it should not control me!

Herein is my problem with atheism. It’s not so much the fact that people say they don’t believe God exists that bothers me; it’s the fact that they want to convince others that what they don’t believe exists – doesn’t exist.  Again, they have become evangelistic in their unbelief!

Why would an atheist be evangelistic in their unbelief in God?  I believe the answer is that, despite all their logic and reason, they cannot fully reconcile the simple facts regarding our existence.

To come to a belief in a Creator God, all one has to do is look around. The simple truth is that mankind did not create the world in which we live. Here’s the simple truth: Something cannot come from nothing. As one looks around, commonsense dictates that “nothing” could not produce the sun, the moon, the sky, water, or even the life we are living. There had to be a Creator God.

Now, I am unashamedly a Christian and believe in the Bible and the Biblical account of creation. However, if I did not believe as I do now, I would still have to believe in a creator of some shape, form, or fashion.

I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, nor am I the brightest Crayon in the box. However, I am smart enough to know that mankind didn’t create life, nor the world in which we reside.

I once heard somebody say, regarding the Big Bang Theory, that the odds of that being true would be equal to a tornado hitting a junkyard and a fully assembled, functional, 747 Jumbo Jet being the result.

My point is that nothing regarding our existence is random. None of this “just happened” or is the result of evolution. And speaking of evolution, it always amazes me that scientists somehow believe that if they can make something old enough that it makes their absurd claims palatable.

Have you ever noticed they will say something like, “Billions and billions of years ago …” thinking that if they can make something far enough in the past it somehow become plausible? Well, the only problem with that is – it just ain’t so!

Again, why then do atheists feel the need to convert others to their unbelief? I think it’s because at the very essence of their being they realize that there has to be a Creator God. But if they surrender that fact, then they must also embrace the possibility that there is a heaven and there is a hell.

Heaven is for those who believe in Jesus Christ and hell is for those who don’t. Therefore, instead of acknowledging Jesus Christ, they seek converts to validate their unbelief.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”  John 1: 1-3(KJV)

No, I don’t believe in pink unicorns. However, through faith, I do believe in Jesus Christ! Do you?
