Candid observations re. the level of life

Did I say candid? Ha, as if that has been a shortcoming. Nope, many defects here, but candor is not on the short list. So, if I may offer a few tales from the world of blogging, based on facts, fairness, repeatable proof, and the true nature of criminal conduct….

There is a hatred of scripture that is abnormal. I’m not talking about a disdain for the works of Shakespeare that some people have, who while spurning the poetry, would never dream of spending a lifetime to discredit his work, nope, I’m speaking of the consistent, daily, mind numbing encompassing of time and energy to DISCREDIT that which is the monarch of books, and by way of association, to cast aspersion upon He who alone could inspire such a record of  the life and times of man and earth.

God has no equal. He is before the bee and the honey. He is before the spider and the world-wide web. He is before the stone of the pyramids. He is before the temporary light of the sun and the moon.

So, what be this hatred for God and scripture? Easy squeezy: the pride of life. Period.

But am I correct, is this hatred and pride? Uh, yep. These twins of the human heart (the dairy cow does not have this dilemma) give fuel to godlessness, atheism, rebellion, vice, and crime of all sorts. It is subtle and most destructive, because it dresses itself in pretty words while wearing  a suit and a tie, or a pantsuit and a dress. Take your pick.  It’s appearance pretends to be attractive while pushing stench cloaked as intellect.

Take the decon, that so-called former christian who now evangelizes that all christians are unthinking morons, and how God’s word is peccable and useless, and how christians themselves have contributed to his/her deconnery. Ha! Can’t stop laughing, as if God’s word has not pointed out the embarrassing position of they who point fingers at others who have the same defects.

Pride is a biatch, and believers are not to blame for your displeasure of God and scripture. Grow up and get a spine. Do you not know that not all believers are at the same mile markers in life, and what you find appealing, they currently find appalling……..and yet, you have ignored the most important doctrine of all: grace.

All of a sudden, you have listened to the golden hiss of ‘new thought’ that suggests Moses never lived……..Abraham’s shoe laces were lost in his travels, and he therefore did not live……since there is no proof…….and ALL the so-called scholars combined say Christ was not the messiah, or that the apostles were deluded………yeah, like that worked out well…….

…..as I said, HATRED for scripture. Plain and simple. God’s word was inspired, written, and preserved with this in view: let God be true and every man a liar.

More candor. You say Moses never lived? You are a liar. You say Daniel was not in the den when God shut the mouth of hungry lions? You are a liar. You say Paul was not Saul of Tarsus and the agent of God as the apostle to the Gentiles? You are a liar. Unlevel.

You say there was not a flood of water that covered the earth brought upon the world of the ungodly by a gracious God? You are a liar. You say God does not control the hot and cold of the earth along with rain in its seasons? You are a liar.  Unlevel.

You say Solomon never lived and that his wisdom was no better than Confucius, Don Ho, or Don Juan? You are a liar.  Unlevel.

You say sin is a fabrication of the human mind and has no relevance to decay, disease, or death? You are a liar.  Unlevel.

You say Christians have orders to lop off the heads of others? You are a liar. You say Christ did not bring anything ‘new’ to mankind? You are a triple liar.  Way off level.

Pride and lying as the twin towers are the devil’s playground. His charm is toying with the mind which innately rebels against God and the truth of scripture. ‘HATH GOD SAID?’ is his mantra, and in this overbearing loud whisper, is revealed the truth of God as pertinent in soon coming 2018.

The father of lies has many children, and pays so poorly, as the price of pride is as useless as a gold tooth on a corpse.  And oh, did I mention the grace of God? Uh yeah, but you may have missed its importance and singularity. The grace of God. Today. The silence of God proves this grace unlike ever before.

And as a bonus thought, the candor of the spirit level, the compass, and the plumbline all speak with the truthful voice of scripture. Every time. Gotta love candor.

    No supposed and incorrectly assumed Hatred of scripture, the old and new testaments, led to my ‘decision’ to deconvert from christianity.
    I found out it just wasn’t true. Honesty and integrity led me to deconversion, cs.

      That’s a first mike. Someone saying their own ‘honesty’ surpasses that of scripture. And the ‘integrity’ of a building is in proportion to its foundation.

      Your ‘foundation’ is greater than scripture…….? Hmmm.

      Soooooo, it appears my assessment is correct: the pride of life.
      But tkx for that.

          ‘Honesty. Courage. Integrity.’ Your words. Now put them in the context of Acts 7, where Stephen’s accounting of Israel’s stubbornness in truth…….led to his own demise.

          It wasn’t that they thought Stephen was being dishonest; it wasn’t that they thought he was not courageous; and it certainly was not because they thought his message had no integrity.

          They simply refused the indictment that the Truth brought to them. They had no issue with Stephen. They simply refused to admit the honesty of their own heart.

          As to you? Just admit you do not like the message of scripture, but please do not bring to my blog your ‘facts’ that the scriptures are not true.

          It is not my intention to embarrass anybody, but please. there are no defects in God or scripture.

Enjoy your new found brain. But noooooo…you have to chase down and “enlighten all of the OTHER morons.” Why? Why the extreme vitriol? Why the mocking? Why the condescension? Why the hate filled, mocking posts? BECAUSE YOU HATE GOD. Why, then, remains the only question. It is, however, clear that you do. Again, if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck….it is a duck.

          Read the book of Jude mike. Will you accuse the epistle writer of hate because he points out ‘raging waves of the sea……………’ ‘foaming out their own shame…………….’ ‘clouds without water……’ ‘bringing ‘ungodly speeches……….’ ‘wandering stars……….’ ‘mockers…………’

          You do have a track record mike of railing against believers; Christians do not rail against you; there is this thing called ‘according to the scriptures…………’ in which believers prove our case.

          Don’t confuse the truth of God with hate because it offends you.

          Preacher Mike. I, am not the one rampaging around Christian blogs hurling nonsense, then running back and writing “rebuttal” posts that are nothing more than shrill whining and hollering. So, the question remains….why do you hate God, Christians, and God’s Word? I’m must asking a question. That, it a nutshell, is actually YOUR problem. News flash, preacher, failing to agree with you or asking you a question does not constitute hate speech. If you want a bunch of glad handing sycophants, run back and pal around with your fellow militant atheists evangelists. When you come around these parts posturing and preening about your superiority to God and His Word, you will be challenged. Put away the pea shooter, Mike, you look foolish. So, back to the question…why?

          That’s a good point about writing rebuttal pieces W, where then all visitors can have fun and games speaking of things irrelevant to the original. Quite the tactic and echo chamber.

          It is a compliment of sorts to not be visited by the others who say ‘believers are morons,’ for in this venue, on this page, with solid believers who are good people, godlessness is easily crushed and upheld by facts, logic, common sense, and of course scripture.

          The 2nd paragraph of this post pretty much sums it up.

      One of the things I find baffling about atheists is how many advocate policies that supposedly would either harm no one or save people from harm. Then they proceed to rail against scripture.

      Abortion is harmless, supposedly.
      Same-sex marriage is harmless, supposedly.
      Pornography and violence on the silver screen is harmless, supposedly.
      Public education is right, supposedly.
      Redistributing the wealth is charity, supposedly.
      Global warming and the Theory of Evolution are irrefutable science, supposedly
      And so forth.

      Yet, the Bible, where in which Jesus tells us to love each other and to do unto to others as we would have others do unto to us, is a terrible evil, a great big lie that supposedly creates religious strife. Frankly, I think some of the things you and your friends take on faith are much much difficult to defend than anything found in the Bible.

      You say atheists are not Liberal Democrats? That’s funny.
      http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/06/01/10-facts-about-atheists/

      There are Conservative atheists, but they don’t waste their time Bible bashing. Even if you don’t believe the Bible, bashing it is just plain stupid.

      Have you looked at those countries where atheists run the show? You live in a society that tolerates Atheism because it has a Christian, not an atheist heritage.

          Wow Ct, that is a strong observation regarding the ‘company we keep.’ True, says alot about what makes us tick .

          Your link up above made me laugh though about educated atheists, as if ‘higher learning’ has the drop on scripture. Yeah, saying ‘there is no God’ makes you smart because some guy with a degree says so.

          But scripture forces you to think, connect, discern, study, and apply………what is taken in, in ways that academia cannot.

          Nobody here is discounting learning, but good gravy, it’s not too smart to ignore He who inspired the Alphabet.

          The people who run our colleges and universities have advanced degrees. Many are Atheists because many are socialists. Many like all that government money flowing into colleges and universities, and Atheism is more compatible with Socialism than Christianity.

          Is it any accident that the Nazis and the Communists are godless? No. Redistributing the wealth is stealing, but if we are willing to covet what others have, then we will vote for a politician to redistribute the wealth.

    This was an excellent post, friend. Your candor is refreshing, in an age of ‘tolerance’ and candy coating! Taking a stand on the inspired Word of God edifies the body of Christ, while convicting the lost sinners. They went out from us because they were never of us. God bless you, and keep you, friend!

      It’s otherworldly I tell ya W; this incessant banging on scripture from they who have no use for scripture.

      Reminds me of a kid banging a metal trash can lid every day and waking the neighbors. When asked if he likes the sound, the kid says, ‘nope, not really.’

      Then why do you do it?

      ‘Because I know other people hate it.’ Geez, what a hobby.

  7. I like it, Colorstorm! A bit of candor without the candy coating. Hatred and pride do indeed go hand in hand. So seldom can we see it clearly, however! There is like, this spiritual blindness on the spiritually blind. So, so many people believe they are good, honest, full of integrity, have a vastly superior ability to reason. A bit if self confidence is a good thing, but when we start to believe we are capable of understanding the nature of the universe far better than God Himself does,something has gone all awry with our thinking.

    For me it’s far easier to believe in God than it is to believe in a bunch of talking monkeys communicating across an invisible wi/fi signal, discussing the nature of our own non existence.

      A little candy is good as you know, but we would starve if that was all we ate. 😉

      I’m sorry, if a person says ‘Abraham who was married to Sarah’ was a construct like Batman……….this person purely hates scripture. No way around it. Then there is Christ who spoke of Abraham as a historical certainty………before Abraham was………..I am.

      It’s all connected, and we shout from the roofs the goodness of God and His word.
