Q. One angry individual wrote in, saying, “If I get hit by a bus when I go to buy some more cigarettes and I stand face to face with God I’ll tell him exactly what I think of him. As Woody Allen said, ‘God has some explaining to do.’”

A. Most of us won’t die under the wheels of a bus. We tend to see them coming. What we don’t see coming is an aneurysm in our sleep, or being rear-ended by a truck, or liver cancer, or a massive heart attack. Death has a way of sneaking up on us, but one thing is sure, it will come.

When the atheist stands before God, it will be a waste of time telling Him what he thinks of Him. God already knows what we think. He sees the thought-life and hears every word spoken. He knows the enmity that human beings have towards Him, and He has even gone to the trouble of telling us exactly why we feel enmity towards Him.

“Enmity” is a state of hostility. Here’s the explanation from Romans 8:7, from the Amplified Bible. This version of the Scriptures (as the name suggests), amplifies the English, by going back to each Greek word and opening up its meaning:

[That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot.”

Our godless thought-process is called the “mind of the flesh.” The “flesh” is the biblical way of expressing the fact that we get pleasure out of sin. The flesh loves gluttony, pornography, violence, adultery, sexual fantasies, etc. We delight in that which is wrong. If you disagree, then explain why it is that almost every movie, television program, magazine, and newspaper is filled with stories of sex and violence? Of course we love these things, and it’s the love of them that makes us despise the very thought of God and His moral Law. We are like criminals who despise the police, because they uphold civil law.

Woody Allen may be big with words, but he is little on delivery. He is a sad man who is fearful of dying. And that fear of death will plague him until he takes the time to listen to the explanation that God has already given us in His Word.

Allen once lamented, “I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.” The offer of not dying is there, and we ignore it at our own peril. Listen to the warning of Scripture: “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation...[?]” (Hebrews 2:3).15

How indeed?
