(This short post was inspired by a particular den of thieves. I use the word in both a comical and serious way. Comical because to deny God His existence is mental theft, and serious because the same God who is laughed to scorn is also extremely patient being robbed of Himself. It was said that ahem, I, was mopped up by the arguments of atheism, and that is rather odd, since that brand of nothingness has no argument.
God’s word has never lost an argument, NEVER, as it is woven into God Himself. A man may as well find fault with a waterfall, than try to point to flaws or weaknesses in scripture or God. Sorry, no can do. The Creator of lightning, rain, fruit trees, time, laughter, and all that is, is flawless and above rebuke. He can be charged with nothing but good. As a matter of fact, daily He proves His intrinsic eternal perfection.)
So tell me. What would you say of a person who boasts of expertise in Calculus but disagrees that two plus two equals four? What would you say of a geography professor who says Cleveland is the capital of Ohio? What would you say of an English teacher who says the correct spelling of that piece of paper for an item purchased is ‘reseat?’
And what pray tell do we say of a person who claims to be a believer in the one true God, but has absolutely no issue with atheism, thinking it is simply an alternative lifestyle?
Would you despise the false math, the false geography, the false English teaching, and the false christian theology? Or does the idea of absolutes frighten you? I suggest that math teachers worth their salt would despise false math, where simple addition cannot exist, and the entire world would then revert to chaos without the truth of the strength in numbers.
No biggie if there are 8 days in a week; no big deal if there are 26 hours in a day; sure, 2 plus 2 equals 3 (heck, it’s close enough,) and it is certainly not worthy of argument in thinking that believers should approve of atheism. Yep, 9 days in week. Just a mere technicality.
But is not this intellectual liberalism at its finest, where a student CAN live a life having his own math, deciding that yes, two plus two equals five, and where it does not matter if Bowling Green is the capital of Ohio either. We wouldn’t want to hurt the feelings of Cincinnati now would we?
And yes, it also does not matter if a believer is an atheist. Uh huh, sure, make your own reality, but in the world of absolutes, people should and do detest the notion that a believer should not have an issue with atheism.
Which is it? Do you cling to believership and detest the atheism, or love the atheism and detest the believership? How long will you cling to both opinions? The word ‘doubleminded’ seems to strike a bell.
So a man defends a professed believer: ‘she does not despise my atheism one bit.’ Hmmm. Make that a double hmmm bartender. Let’s hear a few thoughts from what God tells us through His word as to clothing that is the wrong size, and how to recognize certain people and their lame beliefs or lack thereof:
-unreasoning animals (There is no God…….)
-brute beasts (man is no different from a jackal; Christ did not live, and if He did, He did not know history ) Worth repeating: brute beasts.
-filthy dreamers (Moses never lived, God did not create the stars, Saul then Paul had brain damage)
-clouds without water (believers are mentally deranged, Christ did not suffer once for sins)
-murmurers (God has furnished no proof)
-backbiters (God is evil, believers are brain-dead; Paul formed his ‘own’ religion)
-being filled with vile affections (hello commenters)
-debate (here’s a big one)
-deceit (scripture cannot be trusted, Christ was a liar for promoting the Exodus)
Sooo, atheism (aka false math), all forms of unbelief, and christianity can equally co-exist eh? People have no issue as they detest Christianity, yet the professional atheist thinks it absurd that a believer would detest atheism….. Hey, bartender, make that a triple shot of common sense with a side of turtle soup………..and make it snappy.
And to the alleged believer who has no issue with atheism: aw, nevermind.
