The Bankruptcy of Atheism

Segment 1 (00:00) – Todd introduces atheists as not existing, because all atheists know God exists. Todd brings up evidence in the Bible in Romans 1. Atheists suppress the truth in unrighteousness. Mark Spence talks further about this, Romans 1 is a biblical truth that atheists know God exists. The problem with the Atheist is their heart.

Segment 2 (09:00) – Todd exhorts us to get out of the realm of intellect and into the conscience. Mark expounds further on this. He brings up his past as a heathen and not being able to understand anything until his heart changed. Don’t be afraid of not knowing the answers, don’t make excuses, just go and witness. “Why do bad things happen to good people?” Mark says there are no good people, except one. Also, if you can’t trust men who write the Bible, how can you trust anyone?

Segment 3 (17:40) – Todd says atheism is a religion, saying dictionaries say it is the “faith there is no God.” Mark says not to be afraid of the gospel. Everything is in the balance, including atheistic worldview. The gospel is the power of God in salvation, and Paul wasn’t afraid of it. Clip of Piers Morgan believing he is a good person according to his own morals. Mark says Christians have a monopoly on the standard of good based on God’s word.
