Don’t let the title fool you. Even though I have been part of the most exquisite studies ever, (simply because God’s word was opened and unfolded) the one I am speaking of has no equal. Yep, it is one held by the professional skeptics, pseudo scholars, infidels, ignorant rabbis, apostate Christians, unbelievers, and atheists, and while the scriptures may be read, they most certainly are not opened, and can never be unfolded.
Please explain. Sure, thanks for asking. Goes something like this, but bear with my interlaced sarcasm if you will.
Turn to Genesis chapter one. First, we know God did not create anything, as there is no God. Trees appeared after water, or was it before water, or was it before flora and fauna, or was it after the dairy cow? Doesn’t matter, as God had no part.
The sun, while being the perfect distance from earth, is completely circumstantial, and if it was a foot closer, would make French fries out of your garden potatoes, but who cares? And the moon? Ha, a mere accident with no purpose other than to give the sun 40 winks. Doesn’t matter, God had no part.
We know Eden was a fabrication, Cain never killed anybody as Dr. Seuss’s nephew wrote Genesis, and a vessel 450 ft. long built by amateurs? Pure imagination. (Meanwhile the Titanic was built by professionals, and see what happened there) Rain is not amazing at all, heck, anybody could hold up all that weight, just as easily as snow which dumps 6 feet in Buffalo New York. Rest assured, God had no part.
Turn to the book of Queens, or was it Kings? Doesn’t matter, as Solomon never built a temple, and his alleged father David was purely fictitious. The king was an evil monster and full of doublespeak because he said ‘a good name is better than riches,’ then he told a woman to cut a baby in half, surely signs of mental trauma.
You heard about Hadassah also known as Esther? Yep, another tale from the crypt and not to be trusted. An account purely driven by people who had an imaginary axe to grind with supposed enemies of Israel. Everybody of sound mind knows the Jews have no enemies. And Mordecai? The uncle everyone dreams of, but note, just a dream as the good man never lived.
The prophets were solely men of profit, who sold books, living lives of fictional hardships only to extend the tall tales of scripture to support the narrative that there is a God in heaven who cares for His people and who keeps His promises. Intelligent people know that Isaiah, Jeremiah, Hosea, Daniel, Ezekiel, and that farmer Amos, were delusional and comic book action figures. They never lived.
You have heard of that man some call the Christ, as in the Lord Jesus Christ who spoke of Noah, Daniel, marriage, sin, money, pride, hypocrisy, jealousy, envy, love, sorrow, joy, death, angels, devils, heaven, hell, churches, and of course the gospel of the grace of God, but it does not matter, and there is no God, and God has no son.
But before we leave, let’s address quickly that other monstrous imposition fronted to the gullible that the words of the Lord, since they cannot be trusted, prove even more unreliable when He said: ‘I have many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now, howbeit when the Spirit of truth is come, He will guide you into all truth.’
We know class…. let me emphasize, we know….we know that Christians are not guided into all truth, because they all are deluded idiots because they say ‘science’ is superseded by scripture. They believe things unbelievable therefore scripture cannot be trusted, proving they are all fools. Tks for attending class, next week we’ll discuss the cherubim and seraphim which are equally tall tales meant only to keep the gullible in place, and to keep them from truth. (Enter that condescending remark by Pilate: what is truth?)
Listening to a lecture regarding scripture by the infidel, the apostate, or the atheist is a triple threat, but not to the slow of heart or unlearned. The unlearned merely has not learned as yet, and the slow of heart, while being like a turtle, at least is making progress.
Apostates with bibles in hand, are an embarrassment to intellectual honesty and are more lost than London fog. There is no context, no frame of reference, no differentiation between east or west, north or south, up or down. There are no absolutes, and God is always, Always, ALWAYS cited as contemptible. Beep, no, sorry, God is not on trial. God’s word has wore out every single hammer against it, and still it stands.
Who reads a work and dices and slices the contents in the middle of reading without seeing how it all ends? What sane person could possibly fault the Creator, for ANYTHING?
Key word there, sane. So it is, part and parcel of the ‘many things’ the Lord had to say, came courtesy of His revelation to the apostle Paul, and we have these ‘many things’ revealed in Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians, and so much more. While the twelve were sunk in despair, they were in no position to know ‘the rejected Head of His body, seated in the heavenlies; they could not at the moment know of their election which was sure through sad hearts; they would come to know later that ‘by Him do all things consist,’ thus the many things were rich, deep, layered, and always reverentially true.
But a bible study by atheists? There is more hope that a turtle could teach a monkey how to play chess.
