The atheist's faith is greater than mine

Sometimes people sneer at the idea of "faith". 

But we all have faith. The atheist has faith that there is no God. He pins his eternal future on it in fact because if he's wrong - and Jesus is right - he's in terrible trouble. When I contemplate the extraordinary universe around me and the compelling life of the Nazarene, I must admit its a greater faith than I can muster.

"I tell you that every careless word that people speak they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment" (Matt12:36)
