Doncha tire of people asking for ‘proof of God?’ Sheesh. There is this thing called dirt, and ‘Death’ is kind of a big one, then there is always the crooked branches of life aka ‘sin.’ Ouch. And in between is nothing but the glory of God. Then there are the scriptures…
Not to mention the existence of law, the nation of Israel, the church of the living God, science, art, literature, and for God’s sake, there is this thing called the ‘conscience.’ A man giving his only life for a friend is a pretty big deal too. But the SCRIPTURES!
Here are a few morsels from previous posts, seems always relevant.
Let’s summarize and connect the dots with ‘the links of knowledge.’ There is a bizarre phenomenon captivating the interest of unbelievers worldwide. There is a concerted effort to find fault with the scriptures and to hurl people of faith with slanderous innuendos. Am I sure? Let’s have a second look:
A person tells you the bible is a fairy tale. He says you are a lunatic if you believe ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’ He thinks you are insane if you actually believe there was confusing of languages in Babel, he tells you Abraham never existed, he tells you Sodom was not a real city, and he tells you sin is a fabrication. He then tells you the death of the son of God was a joke. He informs you that the ‘faith once delivered to the saints’ is a deluded hope. He tells you men of higher learning have found errors with scripture.
He then finishes by informing you there are mistakes in what he calls the book of myths, and pleads with you to answer his endless charges. He ridicules people and their precious faith, and he enjoys spreading the poison ivy of unbelief and hopes it is contagious. Hmm, seems I read that somewhere.
The source for the end of all strife and the knowledge of the beginning of wisdom are noble pursuits in higher education.
Where is higher than heaven?
Certain folks demand answers from scripture, Sola scriptura! they shout, while at the same time deny the authority from scripture which gives the answers their only merit. Look at the supreme lack of logic being engaged, where the precursor to the question, guarantees ANY answer as completely unacceptable.
There is no correct answer to the atheist under his own terms.
Would it be wrong of me to laugh at such a statement? Hoop jumping, fact twisting, and logic avoiding are all used to justify further unbelief, while at the same time charging the believer with malfeasance. Indeed, it is the believers fault the truth is vague! Yea, there’s a chuckle in there somewhere.
Watch for the patterns to emerge. Emphasis mine.
These are a few recent comments:
‘ Moses is a fictional character.
You have no evidence for anything you promote on this blog.
And your intransigence is only matched by either your ignorance basedindoctrination or blatant stupidity.’
‘The “Word of God” is what mortal, superstitious Bronze Age men SAY it is.’
‘I don’t mock the Bible. I don’t despise it. But I do recognize myth when I see it.’
‘Adam and Eve aren’t historical figures. They were never real people and they were never our founding couple. We did not descend from them. We did not ‘inherit’ anything from them. They are characters in a story. That’s it. They had to make the choice they did because that’s the choice the author made for them. The characters are not accountable; the author is.’
‘I saw Law and Moses and Jesus and pretty much switched off after this as you are referencing a fictitious character and what is to be gained from that.’
‘There is nothing you can say about the Bible, including all of the supposed “Words of god.” that weren’t written by mortal, superstitious, ignorant, Bronze Age men, except for the NT, which was written by mortal, superstitious, ignorant, Iron Age men.’
‘First, I would need to see testable, verifiable proof that your “god” exists.’
‘ What on earth are you talking about? The story is fiction. It (the ark of Noah) was never built.’ ‘It has been established through science that Noah’s flood, for example, is pure myth. What more is there to defend?
‘Your “Lord,” your “Son of god,” knew no more about the flood than the anonymous, scientifically-ignorant Bronze Age men who invented it, and says a LOT about him.’
I’m thinking that somewhere there are a pack of hyenas snickering at the audacity of men who dismiss their Creator, and who laugh at His word. It appears even nature smiles at such decadence that cannot connect the dots of the God-given heart and mind, that knows without doubt through nature, the conscience, and of course the scriptures of truth, that: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. And God saw that His creation was very good.
Hmm, wonder what happened that the ‘good’ was tainted.
Darkness is merely the absence of light. ‘The entrance of thy word giveth light.’ But WHY do men choose darkness? Of course God is light years ahead with the answer, and it has something to do with ‘deeds’ and ‘evil.’ Uh yyyep. I repeat: the entrance of thy word giveth light.
