Tract – What atheists and rocks have in common

If there is no God and matter is everything, then WHO are YOU? Is your next thought just brain chemistry? Is there any difference between YOU and a rock on the ground, other than the arrangement of atoms? Do you believe in the existence and the importance of truth, logic, beauty, love, justice, honesty, and goodness? Matter doesn’t have these properties. Don’t YOU have the capacity to distinguish between good ideas and bad ideas, logic and illogic, right and wrong? Isn’t there a YOU in there? Everything about YOU tells YOU that YOU exist! Once YOU admit that YOU exist, it’s easy to figure out that God exists.

Look at a nearby building. There is no doubt in your mind that someone with intelligence and skill built it. Time, physics, and chance don’t build structures, but rather tear them down – a consequence of the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Buildings are fairly simple: mostly rectangular design, using bricks, stone, glass, plaster, plumbing, and wiring. YOU, however, are walking nanotechnology. Every cell in your body is far more complex than a supercomputer. Time, physics, and chance can’t create buildings, cell phone networks, or the nanotechnology of life.

The Designer of life is the Lord Jesus Christ, who once walked among us. When an engineer builds something he doesn’t throw it away. He has a purpose for it. God has a purpose for you – first that you find Him.

That mind of yours – your soul – is going to live forever. You have a God-given conscience – you know the difference between right and wrong. Is murder wrong? Is rape wrong? Is molesting children wrong? If all you are is a clod of molecules in motion, then there is no morality. Murder is just one clod colliding with another. You know better! In atheism there is no hope, no meaning, and rational thought is impossible. Think!

Are YOU ready for justice? How many lies have you told? Ever stolen anything, including time from your employer for which you got paid anyway? Ever lusted? Ever gotten angry or insulted anyone? God knows your every thought and judges you as a lying thief with an adulterous and murderous heart. This also applies if you’re religious. Rituals and church attendance don’t save.

Your destiny is a prison called the Lake of Fire. Want forgiveness? Your Judge, Jesus Christ, offers His own shed blood in payment for your sins. When He rose from the dead, He proved His credibility. Repent from your sins and trust Him. Follow Him for the rest of your life and He will grant you the technology to enjoy a resurrected body someday.

Note for the reader: I have printed this tract in an attractive 4×6 inch format with an artistic cover for our own use. If you would like to acquire some, I can put you in touch with the ministry that printed them for me. These tracts are particularly useful on a college campus or with atheist / evolutionist friends of yours. Or you can simply click on the PDF below and use it however you like.
