Chewed Up His Tag

  The dog was being shipped by train from one place to another. But a problem arose. One asked, "Where did this dog come from?" Nobody knew. "Who owns the dog?" Nobody knew. "Where is he going?" Nobody knew. 'What is it doing here?" Nobody knew. "Why doesn't anybody know these things?" The dog chewed up his tag. In this way the dog is like the atheist who denies God.

  The atheist cannot tell where he came from, to whom he belongs, why he is here, where he is going. Denying God, he has "chewed up his tag." The pitiful thing about it he has no intelligent explanation or answer to any of these questions. Yet, atheists think they are so wise? Especially is this true of the "superior" professors. "The fool hath said in his heart there is no God" (Psalm 14:1).
