It’s just grand I tell ya

Gotta love the drama of the decons, yep, those illustrious new disciples of atheism (so-called) proudly perfecting, promoting, and pompously pontificating the art of godlessness, as they tell one and all that yes, they were once blind, but now see the utter vanity and lies of the scriptures!

Image result for goliath

Yep, it is one thing to say there are shortcomings in scripture, (wrongfully assigned of course) it is quite different to then make the leap and say there is no God…not too smart.

And now with such evangelistic fervor that would embarrass many a believer, they now carry their cause, and cry atop the roof tops: ‘I was duped into believing the grace of God.’ Uh huh, sure. Okay.

But please be wise enough to make a distinction between the garden variety atheism which sticks to itself having no interest in God, and the gospel thumping version of ‘I say there is no God, and I will harass you to prove it.’

So here ya go, no charge, something to chew on:

Atheism is the poison that sucks the life out of pure goodness. Like a leech, it drains the blood from that which is healthy, and it would cease to exist without living at the expense of another. Atheism needs a host, and that host is ‘religion’ in general, and Christianity in particular.

But ah, the leech makes no distinction between the head or the tail, and doesn’t care if a madman who ‘says’ he is christian, kills a thousand people with a straw, or if a grandmother without legs spends her days in prayer, no, both are the same, delusional recipients of a non-existent faith. Once more, uh huh, sure.

Atheism, as that leech, with new customers known as decons, would go out of business if it did not live at the doorstep of another. Atheism NEEDS the blood of Christianity to feel vital. Don’t believe it? Visit the sites of they who say Christianity is passe. Indulge yourself as you enjoy seeing the words of they who say ‘there is no God.’ Look at the lifeless string of comments that resemble a corpse that somehow mutters words of contempt.

That’s right, but I apologize to the deceased where there is to be respect. Marvel then at the time, energy, and resources spent to deny that which exists: the Divine.

Look at the effort wasted in trying to suggest people of faith are mentally weak for cultivating hearts of mercy, patience, self-control, respect for authority, goodness, and a life of faith which is its own reward. Look at the attempted larceny of that which is precious. Isn’t it grand…

Atheism is the Goliath of ignorance, writing and rewriting history apart from the God of history. Not too smart, but hey, nobody ever said Goliath was a genius as he needed the life from the smaller David to justify his 9 ft. clumsiness; that said, atheism is much taller, and twice as wobbly.

Yep, atheism is quite oafish, needing vitality from the strength that is in their eyes weakness, but ah, how the wisdom of God confounds the so-called wisdom of the world, and how the weakness of God is stronger than men. Atheism has zero strength, but David’s little stone of truth is stronger than all, for it is rooted in the rock of ages.

  1. The central dogma of atheism is that everything just happened all by itself.

    That’s not just a little stinker, it’s a caravan of toxic waste.

          I was trying to take the heat off CS by reminding you that we’re all guilty to some extent. It was a stupid ploy on my part.
          ‘Pharisee’ gets thrown around a lot but it was a specific group of people, not Christians – though we can be hypocrites. However the question is can you tell whether his life and words match? No. How can you possibly know he’s seeking acclaim for instance? Quoting Paul in the first part of 1 Cor. 2:11: “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
          What’s in your own heart? – only you can answer this.

        • got it about blood (I think)!

          Thank you for being kind. Though it is a pain to be able to see different sides and I can waffle. But on whether I believe in the Lord and His Son – God in the flesh – Jesus Christ. No, I can’t waffle. He saved me, suffered the pangs of death, and should I be unfaithful? Death is scary.
          People don’t get any of it until the Lord gives them new life, that is we were all once dead in our trespasses and sins, Arch. (If you come to Him in repentance and faith, it will be difficult. He doesn’t have some great plan for your future here, other than love and suffering with Him.) Only He can make you see any of this. It’s all nonsense otherwise. Before I believed I resented Christians who constantly talked about the Lord – as if they actually knew Him is what I thought. As a Catholic I thought I had all that was needed. Now I call Him Lord and pray to be worthy. I pray He makes you see and believe. People can talk all day and it’s worth the effort for one person – yes! But finally it’s you and Him.

          Actually, Maria, I’ve not seen you say anything stupid. In fact, you seem to be the embodiment of tact, and I would suspect that in real life, you are a problem-solver, prone to trying to bring two disparate factions together whenever possible. It’s likely you came by your name, “gentle iconoclast” quite naturally.

          If I’ve been curt with you, I apologize, but I have come to expect rude opposition on Colorstorm’s blog, and often react accordingly. You have not been rude in the least, but some of the things you’ve said have triggered things that CS has said in the past that WERE rude, and I confess I may have transferred my reaction to one who did not deserve it. If you feel I did, I again apologize, as you’ve been nothing but kind.

          There is nothing wrong with enjoying praise. It is the person who doesn’t need anyone else’s praise who is too proud. Even Jesus accepted and enjoyed the praise of His Father.

          If CS enjoys Maria Tatham’s praise, I suspect it is because he realizes that each Christian serves Jesus, that all honest and joyous praise is of God.

    For weeks now, I’ve been thinking: what does it say about a man who writes a book declaring God is not great… yet, said man is dead.
    Can no one see the incredible irony of such prideful and deceptive foolishness.

    Paradoxically, they spend more time speaking about a God -they claim doesn’t exist- than some professing Christians.
    I say, God is Great Indeed! “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”

      I like you arch… but what the arch is this……….where’s the sound reasoning/logic that you guys desperately seek to envelope yourselves in, but can never attain?

      You stubbornly grope through life clinging desperately to a negative position that renders you incapable of ever proving -how wise is that… oh well, the atheist has never been & will never be known for his wisdom.
      You have no idea what eternal life is, do you?
      Anyway, the awesome brilliance and wisdom of God is such that He gives wisdom to anyone who asks… but I see you’re in a very tough position, wedged between pride and a very hard ego… pray tell, how will the arch attain wisdom now… gotta employ some sound logic here friend.

      Lady Wisdom: You simple, naïve people, how long will you love your feeble ways? You simpletons, how long will you enjoy making fun of what you don’t understand? You fools, how long will you hate learning what truly matters?

          The very definite ramifications have been lost on mockers & deniers, who lack substance – that’s the only plausible way one can make fun of what they clearly do not understand; and embarrassingly, have never taken any time to reflect nor give meaningful consideration to.

    Why is it, though, that the decons don’t just quietly fade into the sunset so to speak? Why are the decons the most vocal and anti theists around? Could it be by recruiting company they justify their own rebellion?

  6. Well said, Colorstorm. I had a chuckle over “mentally weak.” Uh, yeah not so much.

    Richard Dawkins recently released a facebook post in which he declares the burden of proof is on theists, not atheists. It’s somewhat amusing in it’s lack of logic and has sparked some good humor. “Lord, I demand you prove your non existence to me,” which then begs the question, “Who exactly do you think you’re arguing with?!” If one doesn’t believe, then don’t believe, but one simply cannot demand constant validation from the Creator of the universe Himself, because that is totally irrational.

    Very timely post ColorStorm and well said! I was just reading an on line article on Mother Teresa edging one step closer to sainthood by the Pope attributing a second miracle to her and I was so disgusted by the just mean and ugly comments many wrote about her, many quoting the late Christopher Hitchens verbatim. Even as someone quite familiar with the putrid swamp of on line comment sections I was still taken aback. You’re reminder though about the deadness of these people puts it all in perspective.

    On another subject, I read another interesting article that quoted Eric Metaxas saying, “There are over 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life and every single one must be perfectly met or the whole thing falls apart. Can every one of those many parameters have been perfect by accident?” Indeed I think not.
