“Creed” (condensed) by Steve Turner, English journalist as quoted in Can Man Live Without God by Ravi Zacharias
We believe in Marxfreudanddarwin.
We believe everything is OK . . .
We believe in sex before, during and after marriage.
We believe in the therapy of sin.
We believe that adultery is fun.
We believe that sodomy is OK.
We believe that taboos are taboo.
We believe that man is essentially good.
It’s only his behavior that lets him down.
This is the fault of society.
Society is the fault of conditions.
Conditions are the fault of society.
We believe that all religions are basically the same—
at least the one that we read was.
They all believe in love and goodness.
They only differ on matters of creation,
sin, heaven, hell, God and salvation.
We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him.
Reality will adapt accordingly.
The universe will readjust.
History will alter.
We believe that there is no absolute truth
excepting the truth
that there is no absolute truth. . . .
“Chance” (added as a postscript)
If chance be the Father of all flesh,
disaster is his rainbow in the sky,
and when you hear
State of Emergency!
Sniper Kills Ten!
Troops on Rampage!
Whites go Looting!
Bomb Blasts School!
It is but the sound of man
worshipping his maker.
“Indeed, the hope of atheism moves it inexorably to a creedless chaos.” –Ravi Zacharias.
If I am just an accident of chance I have no reason to be—no meaningful meaning–no God-ordained purpose and fulfillment. Chaos steals character and hope. Evolution brings chaos and despair. There is no meaning there is no hope. Chance steals it all. It’s the devil’s ice cream.
