Unsaved Scoffers Still Laugh at the Bible While Prophecy Fulfills Before Their Very Eyes!

Truth is truth no matter how so few agree. Falsehood is falsehood though everybody agrees. Those are two timeless truths that can't be changed by the majority or minority. There are many times that the minority has been right over the majority. It's not because they're the minority or the majority that makes them right. The real truth of the matter is that facts will always be facts even if everyone chooses not to believe it. Matthew 7:13-14 warns that so few people ever enter into life and there are more people entering into Hell than Heaven.

The issue right now is that prophecy is happening before their very eyes. They can go ahead and mock the Bible because nobody got wealthy being faithful to it except if God allows. The Bible may not contain every detail about the future like when the economy will be good or bad but it certainly tells you of what to expect. Acts 1:7 already tells people that no specific dates will ever be told to the Christian of when and where. Matthew 24:26 warns that no man may know but the Father only. Even if the Bible won't tell Christians how to become billionaires and popular men but its accuracy can't be disproved yet so many still choose to harden their hearts. Even after they read the Bible and the newspaper and it matches why do they still refuse to believe it? It can remind anyone of the Pharaoh of the Exodus who saw all the signs and wonders yet chose to remain stubborn.

Prophecy is already unfolding before one's eyes. A lot of passages in the New Testament have given a good idea of what will happen at the end of days. Wars, famines, earthquakes, economic disasters, immorality on the rise and yet people still choose to dismiss it as mere coincidence. It's not mere coincidence if the doctor discovered you had a tumor. The same is going on with the Bible. It's been predicted and now it's happening yet people will still not choose to believe it. The Book of Revelation was given to John not to merely frighten people but to warn people of what's to come. Yet the bitter irony is that Revelation also shows how many people will choose to ignore the warning.

It's not really surprising at how unsaved scoffers laugh at the Bible. While they laugh at it, 2 Peter 3:3 already predicted that they will be there in the last days. They're fulfilling prophecy without knowing it. Remember that Noah was laughed at for 120 years straight while he built the Ark. Remember that Elijah already foretold that there won't be rain for three years in the Northern Kingdom but Ahab chose to believe that Baal's anger caused the drought. Jezebel herself saw the prophecies from Elijah and Micaiah coming true yet she refused to repent. Remember Jeremiah was laughed at and persecuted severely during his ministry even if the signs were coming to pass. Even after the Babylonian Captivity came to place as Jeremiah foretold by God's power, people still chose to remain disobedient. Remember that the Apostle John wrote Revelation while in bitter bondage as an exile in the Island of Patmos. The Christian can't expect to be in any better position than those before them.

Richard Dawkins' "Compelling" Evidence For Atheistic Evolution is Foolish!

If you noticed the word compelling was spelled as "compelling", it's to deliver from sarcasm of the whole problem of evolution. Many "compelling" evidences of evolution are questionable at best yet these "experts" don't even want to have them questioned. Above this paragraph is a picture of atheist scientist Richard Dawkins showing his chart of a cartoon of whales with feet. Wait... haven't we seen this tactic used by evolutionists before?

They just love to say that the evidence is "overwhelming" but the so-called fossil record is questionable. It's time to ask them a question to how did they know the exact image where the piece of bone supposedly came from? A good example is how a single piece of skull can be said that it came from this person and he supposedly looked like this. They just have their incredibly evil imaginations to draw imaginary cavemen and claim that they already knew everything. Part of their tactic also involves isolating people who don't believe them through appealing to popularity. But the bitter truth is that wrong is wrong though all agree and right is right though none agree. 

A bigger problem towards the so-called fossil record is to ask them whether or not the fossils had notes attached to them. A piece of bone or a single skull is no record for atheistic evolution or proof there's no God. A single piece of skull is evidence of Intelligent Design not evolution. Deformities happened as a result of sin entering into the world. But for these godless atheists there are some of them who believe that man is basically good or that there are no absolutes. If there are no absolutes then why are they claiming to be absolutely sure of that Dawkins' lectures are absolute evidence that atheistic evolution is indeed possible? 

They say the Bible is a "book of fables" but it speaks the truth about them. Romans 1:20-25 says:
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

The Problem of Atheists Rejecting God's Word and Blaming God For the Consequences!

It's a very common practice to say, "We don't need God." then when bad times come they say, "Where was God?". This makes me ask them, "I thought you don't want God. So why are you calling upon Him now when you don't want Him to make changes in your life?". This leads to the serious problem of atheism. Atheism's hatred for God inevitably reveals a very deep personal hatred. Along the way they became an atheist and chose to no longer believe in God because they thought He owed them something. They often even cite that if God is so good then why's the world in a tragic position then they refuse to call sin as sin. Instead, some atheists want to just call sin as a fantasy word. If sin is just a fantasy word then why do they have a standard for right and wrong to start with?

This is the problem of people who call the Bible a book of fables. They even tell Christian adults that they're getting too old for fairy tales while they hypocritically get entertained by works of fiction. If the Bible is just a fairy tale book then why is it that they put it in their most hated list? True works of fiction can make anyone go furious if it's a reflection of them but the Bible targets man's sinfulness than any work of fiction. You can hate a nonexistent character and be glad that the person doesn't exist in real life but that hatred may exist because that non-existent character may remind you of someone you have a feud with. The atheist's case with their hatred for God is much different. It's all about that they wish God didn't exist.

The truth of the matter is that God's law is their for your protection. The Ten Commandments are not cruel. On the contrary they give us ground to complain if we're victims of sin. They say that the rules are cruel but they start complaining why society is in a mess or why they're victims of crime. Worse, they blame God for the problems that rejecting God's Word causes to society. They have no one but themselves to blame.

Political Correctness Won't Make Sin Smell Any Sweeter to a Holy, Righteous God!

It's very easy for any Christian to get sick and tired of sin. There shouldn't be any good reason why sin should be given fairer names. One of the worst things they did was to use the word gay which means happy to describe a male homosexual. I don't want to call it LGBT but rather it should just be called the sodomite or homosexual community. If you're engaged in bisexuality you're still a homosexual. You still violate God's precepts concerning homosexuality. The huge problem is that to be politically correct means you should make certain sins look like they're not sins. In short, it's all about legalizing certain sins.

The problem is that just because man makes sin legal doesn't mean it's legal according to God's Law. Remember a lot of stuff were legalized by tyrannical rulers such as worship of false gods, unjust taxation, child sacrifice (and today it continues in the form of abortion) and murdering God's servants. When the prophets were killed it was in perfect accordance to the laws of an unsaved degenerate ruler. To oppose any law that support certain sins can get you into trouble like the prophets. Just remember John the Baptist lost his head for criticizing the adulterous and incestuous relationship that Herod Antipas (who was married to Phaeselis, daughter of Aretas IV an Arabian king) had with his half-niece Herodias and that Christians lost their lives opposing the idolatrous decrees and immorality of Roman emperors. They didn't even conspire to overthrow the ruling parties but were charged with treason for simply refusing to be politically correct.

The issue is no different than the days of the prophets. People today just repeat the problem in the Book of Judges - every person did what's right according to their own eyes. People laugh at the faithful man of God for warning them about judgment until it's too late like it was in the Days of Noah. People today prefer to be entertained by false prophets than true preachers like it was in the Days of Jeremiah. People even don't want the bitter truth and telling it may result to more persecution. Today, even doctors may consider getting their licenses revoked simply for warning homosexuals about the harms of their activities or scientists may risk losing their license for telling people why evolution can't be science.

So much for telling people to be "tolerant" towards everything. If you tolerate evil then you can't tolerate righteousness. If you tolerate righteousness then you can't tolerate evil. Either you choose good or you choose evil. Both the truth and falsehood can never coexist and will never coexist no matter how hard politically correct people try to mix them together.

Atheists May Consider Dumping Laser Science!

The quote above by Charles Hard Townes the founder of laser science is really true. It's amazing that theistic scientists (Christian or not) have contributed much to the study of science and advancement of technology yet some atheists insist that you can't be scientific unless you're an atheist. The problem isn't a lack of intelligence but one's hardness of heart on the part of the atheist.

If these certain atheists say that believing in God makes you unscientific then may way as well dump the study of laser science and not benefit from it. This means no more use of whatever technology was derived from Townes' invention of the laser and maser. If non-atheists aren't scientific then nothing that they invent or contribute to scientific knowledge should be considered scientific. It's time for atheists to stop admiring and using anything that uses laser and maser technology and to tear out everything that Townes had contributed to physics textbooks.

Sinful Man Hates the Fact That God is Sovereign!

The great preacher Charles H. Spurgeon once said that no doctrine is more offensive to man than the truth that God is sovereign. It's really annoying to anybody's sinful self when they're reminded of how God is sovereign and man isn't. Man is inclined to wanting their own way not God's way. It's very common for man to wish that they could just have it their way and not God's way. But the problem is that man wishes they had their way. God says no but man doesn't want to have no for an answer. That kind of attitude had caused man to lose Paradise all because Adam and Eve didn't follow God's will. The world has been in chaos all because they don't want to respect the sovereignty of God.

Here's what the Bible says about man's attitude towards God's sovereignty:
Romans 1:21 - "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened."

They know God is in charge but they don't want Him to be in charge of their lives. They hate the idea that God should be their Boss and that He's sovereign. They hate the idea that He is Lord and that one day they'll have to answer to Him. They hate the idea that God is in charge yet He doesn't magically make all the problems of the world go away. Some atheists may reply that their turn to atheism was because God is unfair and unjust not to prevent the tragedy from happening. Others want a doctrine that's man-centered because it feeds the lust of the flesh.

The fact that God is sovereign doesn't feed to the three areas of sin: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. If God says no then it's no. The fact God is sovereign also has helped establish the doctrine of election that you couldn't choose God if He didn't choose you. In fact, these verses can be very humbling:
John 15:16 - "Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, He may give it you." 
Ephesians 1:4 - "According as He hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:"
2 Thessalonians 2:13 - "But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:"

The sovereignty of God removes all bragging! It doesn't feed the flesh! It doesn't glorify the pride of life! It doesn't gratify the lust of the eyes! It's all about God being in charge of everything including when He allows Satan and the demons to attack the believer. Satan must get God's permission first before the former could cause any damage to any Christian. God also restrains Satan from doing any further harm. God had every reason to allow both good and bad in the lives of the believer because He's in charge!

Just Say No to Man-Centered Theology

1 Timothy 4:3-4 - "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."

Just because man-centered theology is popular and liked by the majority doesn't mean it's right. Facts will always remain whether or not people believe it or they don't. Man-centered theology is very pleasing to the ears of man. Go and tell people about their total depravity and you can only expect to be persecuted. Go and tell people about how they can have their best life now and be ready to be well-accepted. It's because any doctrine that satisfies the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life is easier to accept than the doctrine of man's total depravity. Right will always be right even when nobody agrees.

Jeremiah 5:31 warns about the condition that people love to be in. The prophets prophesy falsely and the priests bear rule by their means. What should be more alarming is that the people love to have it so. When Jeremiah warned everyone about Babylon's incoming invasion he was laughed at. The majority preferred Hananiah's false prophecies. People would prefer comforting lies over the uncomfortable truth. People are too easily offended whenever their sin are exposed. It's no surprise that many of the prophets were stoned for lovingly warning people about God's judgment. Jeremiah wasn't catering to man-centered theology even for a second.

Man-centered theology fails to address the reality of what Christian life is like. The Christian life is never called to have them parade their wealth, be loved by everyone and have huge mansions and material wealth. On the contrary, Christianity may mean you may lose all as a result of it. You may lose your fame and fortune. Don't believe for a second that just because a person is wealthy that they're right with God. A lot of rich people today think that they don't need God showing that they're not right with God. While being rich isn't inherently wrong but putting one's trust in them is one of the reasons why people think they don't need God.

This start of 2017 it's time to think where is your theology centered on? Are you seeking the glory of man or the glory of God?
