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.

Answering Some Atheists Who Claim That They Used to Be Christians

I remembered years ago when I read a now defunct atheist blog who admitted he used to be a Christian. What he meant that he used to be a Christian is that he was once a Roman Catholic. The average world today considers Roman Catholicism as well as other pseudo-Christian groups to be Christian when they aren't. Another atheist said he used to be a Christian until he read the Bible and found passages that horrified him. But there's one truth in that and that's those who criticize the Bible most are those who read it least. They haven't seen the context of events like why God ordered the destruction of evil civilizations. 
The "God's Not Dead" movies are somewhat lacking but this scene really makes think of atheists who claim they were once Christians. In this clip, notice how Professor Radisson claims that he used to be a devoted Christian. Just because someone came from an Evangelical background or family doesn't mean they're Christians. They may …

Pro-Homosexuality Media's Selective Outrage

Homosexuality is a result of man's fallen state (Romans 1:26-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10). It's a result of man's unrighteousness and the need to be reconciled. It's no surprise how homosexuality now fills secular entertainment. How often is the LGBT media already invading the media slowly but surely teaching nothing is wrong with homosexuality. It's best for anyone not to spend time over-analyzing pro-homosexual music videos and movies. Instead, one should spend time to rebuking the act which in turn will rebuke anything that promotes the act. This also includes the selective outrage of homosexual media as a result of legalizing same sex marriage.

I thought about a couple of events that passed after the United States of America's Supreme Court legalized homosexual "marriages". Starbucks' CEO Howard Schlutz wouldn't accept any dealings with anyone who is for traditional marriage. You have homosexuals who always love to throw their outrage toward…

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

Never Say It's Just a Little Sin!

Many times we think that what's small won't kill but many times, we fail to see that what's small may also kill.  A small leak sinks a big ship.  A small spark can set a forest or a neighborhood or even a city on fire.  Likewise, sin even if it's just small damns the person for all eternity.  Words can't describe how heinous sin is and why it must be hated and why people require salvation from it.  Nobody can say, "But LORD it was just a small sin!" on Judgment Day.  Instead, He'll say what He said in Matthew 7:23 to let such people depart from Him, He never knew them because they weren't saved to start with.

Do you know how severe even one tiny sin is?  One sin was enough to damn the human race.  Adam and Eve didn't have to murder anybody nor do all the sin they wanted.  All they had to do was just commit that just one sin.  Likewise, everyone on this Earth is condemned even for just one sin that they commit.  Romans 5:12-14 warns that it wa…

Manny Pacquiao's Conversion: True or False?

Bro. Gerry Soliman of Solutions Finder Apologetics who I wish to soon meet in person has actually raised the issue of rumors that Pacquiao had returned to Roman Catholicism.  The truth of the matter is once saved, always saved.  That is a true Christian remains a true Christian no matter what the circumstances may be by God's grace and true faith in Christ continues by God's grace and not by man's effort.  Anybody who supposedly converted to Christianity but later fell away completely was never saved to begin with (1 John 2:19).  Friends, either you are saved or not and the kind of live you live tells the person you are.  Christians do good works only for God's glory, the works salvationist does it in a vain effort to save himself but fail.  By reading the entry from Bro. Gerry's blog, it looks like Pacquiao had a genuine conversion and not a false one.
I am really annoyed at how dirty Roman Catholic apologists have gotten who now also said that the pastor who prea…

Testimony of Former Iglesia Ni Cristo Member, Now a Born Again Christian

Editor's note: 
First and foremost, I would like to thank the Bereans for this wonderful story of a former Iglesia ni Cristo minister (or pastor), now he has become a Baptist Christian.  It's a sad story that some people have just jumped from one cult to another.  Some members of the Watchtower Society, Charismatic Movement or the Iglesia ni Cristo have left Roman Catholicism but they have never truly come to know the truth of salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that any good works after Christian life is but the grace of God at work in the believer.  Now for this brave testimony that I can really share after many years of searching for one testimony which I hope will further bring more INC members to Jesus Christ.

May I begin with a word of prayer that in the midst of all these trouble, I call upon Jesus Christ the Son of God who the Iglesia ni Cristo deny is indeed God, the only way to salvation, that they trust upon their works and church membership than Him alone.  I…
