Ha, can’t compete with Noah and the animals being called unto him for preservation sake, but at least this small blog can/has made a dent on the daily godlessness posing as intellect. How so? Glad you asked.
Over the years, there have been steady visitations by the usual customers; they who have proudly admitted no use for God nor people of faith really, and they will/have, at every opportunity, offer a pittance of words that always paint believers as unthinking idiots, and God as an evil monster who is out to lunch regarding His own creation.
As you know, this site is a haven for unapologetic defense of scripture, that being God’s word is very good, and we the people, eh, not so good all the time. But one by one, they have dropped, from the most vocal and antagonistic to the grace of God, to the casual one sentence insult of my post(s); yes indeed, they have gone by the wayside, being thoroughly and completely defeated by scripture, truth, logic, common sense, and helped alongside by the testimony of decent believers who have all spoken with the golden voice of agreement that God is very good, and His word resolute.
To prove this even further, I have been banned in many many places, (as have some of you) for simply being a voice of reason amidst profane commenters who would no more repeat things said online than if being in the company of a mother or children. Light has this effect. It’s not my light mind you, nor yours, but the scorching light of eternal truth, which always scatters night critters. (as an observation, some need moderated here because they have proved to be untrustful with a free forum; some put forth utter depravity and plain vulgarity which I will not host)
Yep, they used to come, and harass good people who enjoyed thoughts on nature, scripture, the news of the day, and they would find fault, but take note, they could find no wrinkles in a believers consistency, and they moved on to seek new ‘meat’ to try to steal precious faith or to simply plant seeds of confusion amidst the young.
I have said on many occasions that God has never lost an argument to ants, and while yours truly may have offered a random weakness of thought, God wins every time, and He need not even show up. His word is that good.
So congrats to all my believer friends, whose steady stream of visits and commentary have sealed that sure fate of godlessness, unbelief, and that ugly little monster called atheism, and that man of sin, whose disciples are really intellectual babies who have never grown up, and whose fleeing from the Den have confirmed the ever and always perfect word of the only living God, through whom He has revealed Himself in the age of grace, whereby the son of God sits on the right hand, abiding His kingdom of patience.
A silent heaven in the midst of a world gone sideways is the singular greatest proof of God’s truth. His quietness is deafening.
The whole creation still groans, from that once pristine place called Eden, through vice of every sort, through rebellion, disease, murder and mayhem, mischief and miscreants, through the spiritual raping of scripture perfected by atheists and pseudo scholars, through the tepid testimony of believers, through fear or fortune, through the reprieve of the Baptist’s life in the wilderness as a man among men, and as a disciple above all, he committed himself to One higher still, yet the earth cries out for a day of reckoning.
That day will come, but the time is not yet. So we press on, working, paying the bills, laboring in the wee town of Blogsville, suffocating godlessness as we testify to Truth at every turn, and how we advance God’s kingdom, and bless Him for allowing us to have a part, and to see a bit of fruit even now, as the tens become nines, then eights, then fives, then two by two they drop like swatted flies, and scripture wins the day. As always. And ever shall be.
Keep it up brethren, and yes, sisters are included in the phrase, lest the term ‘mankind’ be challenged by the weak-minded. But the victory has long been won.
(PS- have you also noticed that your very sites as well have been purged of sorts, and the air is much cleaner)
