Thought for the day

It is eternally easier for a man to believe that the scriptures are true, than it is for a man to believe he will live to see tomorrow.

By the scriptures, I mean the word of God, as revealed through the only true and living God, described, demonstrated, and proven in the Holy Bible, that word which is forever settled in heaven, whereby the Creator is revealed through the Lord Christ, as the only God of nature, science, arithmetic, the alphabet, and all truth; ALL truth, by whom and through whom, God has no competitors, even though attempts have been made by the fabricated many ‘gods’ of sinful men, who collectively can neither count to three, blow a bubble, or tie their shoes.

The scriptures. Guaranteed truthful and certified with the seal of heaven. His tomorrow is certain. Yours? Eh, not so much.

Thought(s) for the day

‘Proof’ is the incessant cry of the godless ere they admit ‘there is a God.’ Ha. As if the answers are not found in life itself. Anyway, this cracks me up.

Image result for say that again?

Many Einsteinians, Degrasses, Nyes, Hawkings, and such ilk, say the earth is a spinning globe at 1000 MPH and hurling through space at 67,000mph. Yikes. Kind of makes a sane man dizzy.

Mind numbing numbers and ideas with zero proof. Didja catch that? Zero proof. Sure, there are theories, calculations, speculations, formulas, suggestions of evidence, but nope, no proof. None. Zero. Nada. Nil. Nula. Zippo. Harpo. Chico. Yeah, its funny all right.

No proof whatsoever. Ever. Nothing observable, testable, or repeatable, such as the pillars of science demand. Therefore, the greater issue is never following the trail of absolute truth, but of erecting a smokescreen that leaves out God.

So the so-called science that the godless worships, feeds on its own dead fruit, and cannot see its own mentally malnourished world view. Example? Sure. When asked to explain gravity, Degrasse said a thousand words, talking in circles and pretended intellect, choking on his own house of cards, citing the ‘geniuses’ of yesterday,  then finally admitting:

‘We can say what it does to other things. We can measure it. Predict with it. It is the curvature of space and time. Matter tells space how to curve, and space tells matter how to move…..(then he sums it up and adds)  I don’t know what it is, no body knows, can’t explain it.’

Huh???? Say what?

Thus spoken by a high priest of ‘science.’ Do you see why scripture calls it ‘science falsely called?’  But he is ‘certain’ the earth spins at 1,000 mph.  He is certain the earth hurls through space at 67,000 mph. Again, having ZERO proof.  Observable? Nope. Testable? Certainly not, and a thousand times no. Repeatable? Well, maybe the nonsense is.   If something like ‘gravity’ is worshipped by the godless, and presented as fact, you can rest assured it is non-existent.

Soooo, life which is full of proof just as the eyes can see, and scripture which tells the truth, is traded for the guesswork of false science which relies on devilish faith in the godless suggestions, endless theories, fancy math that does not add up, and baffling explanations that are pure fraud, ALL with the desire to steal from God what is rightly His.

You know what I say? No, forget what I say, this is far better:

-Be still and know that I am God.

-The Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him.

-Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Juicy fruit

This is just too plain juicy to not dedicate its own attention. On a post regarding the improvement of human society, with an intent to inflame believers against each other, this observation was made by viole twisp:

I always find it interesting that they assume atheists are, relative to them, living a debauched life of ‘sin’. I do think Christianity has a tendency to attract quite messed up people with low self-esteem who have difficulty controlling themselves – it’s the only thing that accounts for this kind of projection.

So let’s take a gander at what’s beneath the surface. But what is ignored, is the fact that the common atheist is no greater sinner than let’s say, a church going guy or gal who has perfected the skill of associating with potential clients. It is just that the atheist must cloak his/her disdain of Christianity by comparing his ‘superior’ life of not needing the so-called crutches of faith.

But the ‘attraction of messed up people….with low self esteem…….who have trouble controlling themselves……..’  Ouch.

How then do we explain the ‘attraction’ of Saul of Tarsus, to the religion he once despised? No self-esteem problem there. A man among men. A man of letters. A Hebrew of the Hebrews. A Pharisee of the strictest sect. A member of the tribe of Benjamin. Unequalled in his law prowess. Unparralled in his arguments defending scripture.  Exceptional in his passion for truth.

He was far from ‘messed up,’ yet his mental skills would embarrass any modern psychologist with his defense of creation alone. But Christianity attracts all kinds of misfits, yep, truth be told. Such castaways as scientists, engineers, lawyers, heart surgeons, bus mechanics, electricians, bricklayers, microbiologists, bridge painters, nurse aides, tailors, poets, senators, and even self-righteous law-keeping scribes.

So let’s fix this. Christianity attracts people who have tasted all the world’s attractions and have hungered for the truth of life, and have enjoyed a life of truth in return. Christianity is in a nutshell, about life. It is not about putting a new suit of clothes on a mannequin. It is not about being a ‘better’ person. It is about a dead man having life.  Sober but true.

It is simply carrying the banner of identification with the sons of Adam, who while being created in the image of God, have marred this image in a thousand ways, but who have also found that the Lord of creation, He is God, and He is good, and that He is actually for us.

Like a candle in a dark room, He offers light to the powerless, they who stumble in darkness, and while citing believers as ‘ones who cannot control themselves,’  we simply bow the knee to He who controls everything.

The creation of the sun as the greater light is no small feat I tell ya. ‘Controlling’ the distance from earth, and the temperature….then there is the moon. That demure sight of nightly elegance which demands reverence toward He who shows His approachable glory 24/7, that we have no excuse.

God is quite the gentleman so good people have noticed. So yes, consider me guilty of being attracted to the natural magnetism of God, as He attracts ALL people, of all kindreds, tongues, and nations.

‘Messed up people’ eh is the only accounting WHY people are drawn to God? Hmmm. Quite a few apologies should be in order then toward the above mentioned scientists, lawyers, engineers, and people of all stripes, who have only recognized that all questions have been answered by He whose understanding is infinite.

Well then, messed up I am, as I cast my lot with Saul of Tarsus, then Paul the apostle, and countless millions who have opened their eyes and have turned from darkness to light, unto the only true and living God, who has revealed Himself in and through  the person, work, and worth of the Lord Jesus Christ, by whom all things consist, whether they be seen or unseen.

And as a bonus reminder, the life and times of Paul the apostle puts to rest once and for all the absurd idea that Christianity attracts people with no self esteem, and people who have ‘control’ issues. That’s some real bad juicy fruit there, stale even.

Taste and see, that the Lord, He is good. He alone satisfies.

Thought for the day

It does not require the mind of an Einstein, a Tesla, a molecular biologist, a heart surgeon,  a carpenter, or a lawyer, to know there is a God.

All one needs is to be alive.

Then again, ask any two year old, as the divine code is imprinted on the conscience. It’s too bad the so-called scientists hide their knowledge of this between their sandwiches of theory and endless detours, which provides no nutrition, for the bread of unbelief is quite stale.
