On atheism

Some say that they are atheists, but there is no such thing as an atheist…No such thing.  Even the devil believes and trembles (cf. James 2:19), but he refuses to do good.  There is no such thing as a person who does not believe in God, and there is no rational being on earth that does not long after life with all his heart.  We will give anything to live eternally, and we all long after perfect love, love that never changes but lasts forever.  God is life, He is love, peace and joy.  There are those who oppose Him, but they can do nothing to hurt Him.  It is we who complicate our own lives with our negative thoughts.
