The FOOLishness of Atheism

Happy April fools!  There's been no other time in history worth acknowledging atheism but April 1 and it's a sad thing really that people choose to reject there is a God.  Psalm 14:1 says, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.  They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."  So how foolish is atheism.  Atheists say, "Thou shalt not bear false witness Christian!" when their system is in fact nothing more than a bunch of lies, God is no delusion and that intelligent design is not a magic wand argument.  Still they insist Christians are liars, frauds and responsible for all the mess the world is into.

Here are just some things noticeable:

Note: This entry is not meant to create anger against atheists but atheism.  The atheist must take time to consider the fact that God is still willing to forgive them while they are still alive, only if they let Him.  We are here to hopefully soften their hearts but sadly many of them have continued to harden their hearts no matter how high the cost may go.  We love them enough to preach to them the truth that there is a God and His Name is Jesus Christ!

1.) They have a hard time believing there is a God yet they buy one pagan myth to another, remove the theistic part and account it for the world's existence

Like it or not, Charles Darwin was NOT an atheist1.  He was a deist and probably a Freemason himself as he came from a line of Freemasons.  Evolutionists are not necessarily atheists and the idea of mankind coming from lower lifeforms marching to a higher lifeform is all part of a paganized society's way of thinking and it's being believed by MOST world religions today.  Many atheists have adhered to Charles Darwin as the "man who killed God".  The problem is MANY evolution textbooks are NOT written by atheists.  They simply got the idea to try and explain God away.  They call agnostics and other forms of theists to be idiots and Charles Darwin was a theist!

Their argument can be as, "Well I don't believe in God because I don't see God."  However they have not SEEN evolution happen, they have NOT seen the Big Bang or whatever pagan myths they have adopted yet they believe it.  They say Christians are unscientific yet NOTHING proves their claim that life came from nothing!

2.) They have a failure to account for morality due to relativism

Perhaps one of the most famous quotes of atheism is this, "The total amount of suffering per year in the natural world is beyond all decent contemplation. During the minute that it takes me to compose this sentence, thousands of animals are being eaten alive, many others are running for their lives, whimpering with fear, others are slowly being devoured from within by rasping parasites, thousands of all kinds are dying of starvation, thirst, and disease. It must be so. If there ever is a time of plenty, this very fact will automatically lead to an increase in the population until the natural state of starvation and misery is restored. In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference2.".  And it's a pretty self-contradictory system.  One can notice that atheist blogs are usually filled with bad words.  Plus, it's best that the URLs of the Devil will not be placed here, they shouldn't get any more traffic than they already have and Christians should NOT waste time reading them and get stressed!

So here they call Christians dishonest yet they believe there is no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.  For example, how can they call Christians to be dishonest for mentioning about sin when there's the statement that sin is just a fantasy word and people were just doing what they could to survive.  Or another, how can human sacrifices be wrong if there's nothing but pitiless indifference.  Perhaps a trip to an atheistic Communist country like Cambodia could at least open the eyes or reading of the atrocities done by the dictator Mao Zedong in China (we recommend reading "Mao's Last Dancer", though it is a secular book by Li Cun Xin, it does detail MUCH of China's atheist regime).  This philosophy gave rise to dictatorship aside from Roman Catholicism and Islam.  By teaching so in the secular schools, it was resulted to more school fights, more school shooting and tiny problems have grown into mountains.  This is all based on pitiless indifference.

This however does not mean atheists are necessarily totally wicked and immoral, some try to do the best they can to keep society in order but they still fail to account for morality with their philosophy.

3.) They laugh at the Bible yet they buy atheist literature as their Scriptural references

Weird but true.  They put the Bible to the test yet popular atheist literature becomes their source of Scripture. Some of these books happen to be "The God Delusion" and "The River Out of Eden" by Richard Dawkins or other books even some, dare to call Christians as bearing false witness.  After doing some cross examination, it can be concluded that these books are written out of bitterness and hardheartedness against God (like the Pharaoh of the Exodus).  It's amazing to see the Word of God that has stood the test of time to be always put to the test despite the evidences yet they HARDLY put to the test the writings of their favorite atheist authors.  Atheists quote their authors mostly as if they never make a mistake.

Thou shalt not bear false witness anyone?  Their books are nothing more than a bunch of lies backed up by another bunch of lies.  Many of these books happen to be foul-mouthed, full of bad words, sexual references and not to mention hypocritical.  Some atheist literature tried to debunk Alberto Rivera and Jack T. Chick as "delusional nutcases" especially with how Jack T. Chick's comic "Primal Man" really proved the deception behind atheist systems and evolution.  It showed the sad truth of atheism as nothing more than a system people adopt to avoid God.

4.) They can't tell the difference between Christianity vs. world religions

Various atheists have compared Christianity to world religions when there are hardly ANY common grounds except that they're theist.  Well it's NOT enough to be a theist- one must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for who He is (the Son of God) and what He did for sins to be saved.  They have compared Christianity to religious terrorism (such as the Inquisition and the Crusades or Islamic terrorist activities) when there is a BIG difference.  Christians preach the Gospel and are narrow in doctrine in the sense they are John 14:6 proponents that salvation is ONLY through the Lord Jesus Christ but they are commanded to love their enemies and pray for those who reject the Gospel.

What about atheism?  Most of the time, those who reject atheism have ended up in brutal treatment.  The Khmer Rouge of Pol Pot and Mao Zedong's regime were known for its torture of not only other theists but also the Bible-believing Christians!  While one can point out and say, "Hey many Communists are Catholics." but they fail to account for how Communism was also fueled by atheism.  While they condemn Islamic theocracies and Catholic theocracies for cruelty, they fail to see the cruelty of the Tiananmen Square Massacre or how the Cultural Revolution of Mao Zedong created a massive genocide.

Who Will You Believe: Pope Francis or the Bible?

Here's a cartoon of how tragic the afterlife for Roman Catholics would be when they realize that they needed a real, personal relationship with Christ to enter into Heaven. As I grew up as a Roman Catholic I didn't really care about the Bible. I even hear some Roman Catholics are told to never read the Bible for themselves because not everyone should be allowed to read it. The priest often says that reading the Bible alone will confuse you so you need their extrabiblical doctrine. Worse, they are confusing Sola Scriptura with Solo Scriptura. Born again Christians have their tradition but it's dictated by the Bible as a guiding principle to one's lifestyle. It's not that they read only the Bible but rather they have the Bible as their only principle for Christian tradition.

What is this personal relationship? As much as some pastors feel like the term personal Lord and Savior can be dangerous or "personal Savior" may suggest that Jesus is a genie than Lor…

When God Says No, He Means No

When God says no He means no! Do you know why the world is in a mess right now? It's all because Adam and Eve couldn't follow one simple rule that was to never eat of the tree of the fruit of life. I'd like to imagine it that God may have even put an "Off Limits" sign on it. But Satan himself always finds a way to convince people to break the rules.
Genesis 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

What Christians Can Learn From Joshua and Caleb's Confidence in Seizing the Promised Land

Being a Christian means you can be stuck in a pickle. Today's lesson will be from Numbers 13-14 which talks about the twelve spies to the Land of Canaan. I think any Christian leader going into much trouble today may find this as both a source of vexation and encouragement at the same time. It's a source of vexation because there are so many people like the rebellious Israelites in the wilderness. It's a source of encouragement because it's a reminder that God is still in charge.

The story of Numbers 13 talks about the spying. We see one member of each of the tribes that were given a political inheritance were there. We can see their names are as follows:
Numbers 13:4-13 And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur. Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph. 8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun. Of the tribe of Benjamin…

Drunk Driving is Dangerous to Society

Consider this picture of a drunk driving incident. This is the car that the late Princess Diana Spencer, the late Dodi Al Fayed and the late Henri Paul (the driver) were using before their tragic demise. What was also interesting to note is that their driver had high dosages of alcohol prior to this gruesome incident. I don't want to talk about the conspiracy side of things but the whole ugly picture that drunk driving kills. But even after this incident and many similar ones before it is that many people still do it even if the consequences are clear as day.

The Bible warns that being a drunkard is one of the marks of an unsaved person:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Modernization is Not an Excuse to Dismiss Badly Needed Old-Fashioned Revivals

I remembered reading through Jeremiah can be a chore because the events of that book continue to repeat itself. At the same time, reading through Jeremiah can be a comfort because the prophet chose to stand by God's command even if he momentarily stopped preaching (Jeremiah 20:5). One verse that is used to call for old fashioned revivals is Jeremiah 6:16 which says:
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
It's a problem you start calling for old-fashioned revivals and people will call you outdated or a neanderthal. While there's nothing wrong with modern technology but the problem is when people only care if something is modern. While modernization can be used to evangelize but it can also be used to spread the influence of sin. The same printing press that allowed the late Martin Luther to publish Bibles was also u…

The Prosperity Gospel is an Enemy of Cheerful Giving

I remembered having a lecture on the prosperity gospel. One of the worst lies of the prosperity gospel is that giving money or the tithes and offerings to their pastors will turn you into a millionaire, God will spare them from trouble and that they can have the desires of their wicked heart. That's one of the worst heresies I've heard. On the contrary the more faithful you are to God the more you should expect enemy attacks. Some people I know are faithful in giving and their tithes and offerings yet they are not living as billionaires. The motive of giving in the prosperity gospel is to gain the false promise that God wants us happy, healthy and wealthy all the time. That's not cheerful giving isn't it?

If you give money to God in exchange for material blessings then something is pretty wrong. It's a terrible misapplication of Malachi 3:9-10. Do they even know that the blessings where there isn't enough room to receive it isn't all about becoming a billio…

Politically Correct Parenting Raises Spoiled Brats

Politically correct parenting is already the norm of parenting in this fallen world. What most parents don't see is that everyone needs a healthy dose of both Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. But like anything beneficial in excess or in scarcity too many people have either too much or too little of Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. While it's not okay to have an overdose of Vitamin No but what's so upsetting is that many people today take the opposite extreme. They aren't giving enough Vitamin No ad are given too much Vitamin Yes. Either way both are overly misguided approaches in parenting.

Is there anything wrong with giving the child what they want? It depends on what the child wants. If a child wants something that's going to honor God (ex. They want their own copy of the Bible that they can read for themselves) then the parent should say yes if what the child wants is God honoring. But if the child only wants to be like the secular children with all their nice stuff the…
