Today’s first reading is a unique Bible passage with which we should be familiar.
Paul says that atheists have no excuse for not believing in God. He asserts that logical people are compelled to see God’s hand in creation. We should memorize the evidence he gives for believing.
“For what can be known about God is evident to them, because God made it evident to them. Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived in what he has made.”
Lately, I have listened to too many people asserting that Mother Nature had mysteriously brought about all the wonders of our macro and micro world.
I find it helpful to hear St. Paul tell us those people are leading us astray with empty logic.
