That the Eternal Almighty creator and sustainer of life does not exist. And then we have: ‘’Because that which may be known of Elohim is manifest in them: for Elohim hath shown it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, clearly seen being understood by the things that are made, both his eternal power and Divinity; so that they are inexcusable’’. What has happened over the years is the true meaning of atheist has been ignored and the atheist has raised himself onto the lofty pedestal of free will along with the Arminian. The Arminian declares his will being free to allow him to seek, choose and obtain salvation. While the atheist declares his sovereign decision in denying the existence of Deity. Atheist means without Theos / without God / without Elohim. Just as amoral means without morals. The question must be asked, why is the person who declares himself atheist, without God? Is it because the power of the atheist is greater than that of the Almighty? Or is it because the Almighty has left the person without saving grace, without saving knowledge and without trust. It is of course the latter. The boast of the atheist that there is no God is as empty as an old husk, because the word atheist means something completely different to what they have been taught. The atheist is without Theos, because they have been left in that state.
