Atheists, and those without faith, condemned by the faith of Job and Noah
Noah and Job, real men of faith.
By Noah's obedience in doing all that Jehovah told him in the preservation of himself and his family [eight souls] and a selection of the animals, Noah condemned the rest of the world to death. Genesis 6:22.
Hebrews 11:7 (King James Version)
7By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
In the case of Job, all he had was what his eyes could see [no telescope, no satellite photos, no holy scrolls], and what he heard [what was passed down as the spoken word]. Yet, Job, maintained his faith despite serious losses and a deteriorating health. Even Job's wife and so-called friends prompted him to curse Jehovah.
With his endurance, Job spoke to God, who manifested himself through a windstorm.
As a result of the faith of Job, a man who had faith based on what limited evidence he could see and what he heard, there certainly, is no excuse for ANYONE, to doubt, that there IS a Grand Creator.
