<<one who denies God exists>>

A person who doesn’t believe in the existence of God and is firmly convinced of that view. This is different to an agnostic who doesn’t know whether God exists or not. “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’’’ (Ps 14:1, 53:1). Atheism elevates man to the category of God, by putting man in the center, yet this unbelieving stance does not have the power to change lives or bring peace and joy.
