Atheists these days are more numerous and bold than in previous generations. As public tolerance for atheism grows, they have become increasingly open in their hostility toward God. The Internet – and the relative anonymity it provides – has only increased these displays of hostility and outright mockery.
This sort of thing does not please God. Recall the judgment he brought against those who mocked a mere prophet of God, the prophet Elisha:
So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake. And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, “Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.” And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them. And he went from thence to mount Carmel, and from thence he returned to Samaria. (2 Kings 2:22-25)
Moreover, today’s mockers were prophesied by the Apostle:
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: but the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (2 Peter 3:3-7)
The fire of judgment is coming to the mockers. If God sends she bears against children who mock His prophet, how much more severe punishment will come upon those who mock the very Son of God? If you are someone who mocks God, think again. If you know those who do, and if you love them, find a way to warn them.
