Those Who Criticize the Bible Are Those Who Read It Least!

Add the word "wrongly" before criticize though...
I remembered how I've seen people who actually criticize the Bible a lot for being a book of tyranny and oppression.  Some foolishly unrestrained people have been calling Christian schools as places of tyranny, concentration camps and say that the Bible is a book that oppresses man, that it's a symbol of tyranny and it's a book of inconsistencies.  But here's the question that I want to tell them, "How often have you read the Bible to criticize it?"  I may expect an answer saying that they are too intelligent and that they don't need to read it again while they criticize it.  I always feel like saying, "Look, if you read it thoroughly, you'll find out how wrong you are."  The more I think about their refusal to take the Bible into context is because of their intellectual pride, not their intelligence.  What they do not realize is that they are willfully foolish and ignorant while declaring themselves to be wise in their own eyes.  

Reading through their arguments which are hard to digest due to all the profane language and swearing in them (the Bible says in Romans 3:14 and Psalm 10:17 that such mouths are filled with cursing and bitterness), I can see how they quote the Scripture.  The Scriptures they quote are very much taken straight out of context.  Even when they insist that they are not taking Scriptures out of context, they are by their own actions, taking them out of context.  It's been one of the most effective weapons the children of Satan have aside from the use of character assassination and half-truths.  Matthew Slick of Christian Apologetics Research Ministry reveals this truth about atheists saying, "Additionally, after reading much atheist material and debating with them over the internet, I've discovered they often use mockery of God, religious leaders, and the Bible as weapons to further their agenda.  This isn't the case with all atheists as I have had very good conversations with some of them, but ridiculing attitudes are surprisingly prevalent and strong.  Character assassination, half-truths, and out-of-context Bible quotes are typical tools used by many of them in attempts to make Christianity look bad." taken from "Concerning atheist attacks against Theism".

Let us take a look at the fact these unfair critics of the Bible call God a murderous monster.  They usually cite the verses that talks about God's command to kill a certain civilization, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and just about every instance God commands warfare without understanding the context.  Some of them even say something as foolish as that sin is just a fantasy word and people were doing all they can to survive then God becomes a killjoy.  This also raises the question that if they believe in the famous Dawkins quote that there is no good, no evil but only pitiless indifference and that if sin is just a fantasy word, what is their ground to condemn a just and holy God as a cruel, murderous and unjust in the first place?  If they knew how wicked the civilizations were which were involved in every form of bloody cruelty then they have to realize, God judges the wicked in due time.  They are most likely to cook up another excuse to continue their hatred for God and their unbelief instead of seeing themselves as worthy for extermination.

What they may also fail to see is that God in spite of His hatred for sin and that He is angry with the wicked at a daily basis that He still has given a chance for mercy to be met.  What is worse is that the atheists make fun of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for the sins of man as either just a "fairy tale" or an "unnecessary act".  If they read the Bible in context, blood is required as payment for sin and it's the sinless blood of Jesus that pays for it.  Hebrews 9:10-22 is clear that without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness and when Jesus paid for it that all blood sacrifices got abolished as a result.  God could not make man righteous without that payment for sin because He is just.  Jesus offered to be that payment for sin for the helpless sinner.  What they do is that they have spat on God's holiness as a result which is both the basis of His mercy and justice.  Their arrogance would be their downfall.  Only if they humble themselves, stop their hostile rebellion against God and submit to His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior can they escape the wrath to come.

Sorry Homosexuals, God Owns the Rainbow, Not You!

I found this absolutely funny picture and the maker got it right about homosexual activists getting mad at the rainbow light in the Noah's Park exhibit. Who could forget the time when homosexual marriage was made legal that those who are for it used the rainbow on their pictures on Facebook profiles or in other social networks. They claimed the rainbow as their color. I don't apologize for speaking the truth. The Bible is God's covenant with man and not homosexuality's banner of success. Genesis 9:14-17 - "And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said …

Politically Correct Organizations Need to Take the Beam Out of Their Own Eye First

Politically correct organizations meddling in worldwide affairs is not anything new. Whether it's the Vatican, the European Union, the United Nations, Human Rights Watch and any organization driven by political correctness (and not all of them are Illuminati or Jesuit ran but they're all still dupes of Satan and most of them don't even know it) it's always a problem that they are indeed meddling. While meddling isn't inherently wrong but here's some problems with politically correct organizations:
They only meddle when it's convenient for them as they are guilty of both selective outrage and selective justice.They meddle in the affairs of others without considering their own yard first.They meddle like as if they own the world.
It's stupid how political correctness demands Christians not to judge others but they end up failing to judge themselves. They are always taking "Judge not and you will not be judged." out of context without knowing wha…

The Error of Comparing Protestantism to New Atheism

The amazing blindness of Catholic.com is too amazing isn't it? I just read an article written yesterday which compares Protestantism to New Atheism. As much as the article is written as professionally as possible in contrast to some self-proclaimed apologists I've had a lot of useless arguments with but I'd like to give a friendly rebuke to the writer Karlo Broussard. It's my sincere prayer that Broussard will see the truth from the pages of the Scripture. 
The writer commits the fallacy of categorical error. He compares Sola Scriptura with Richard Dawkins' views on science. Here's one of the statements that really should be considered a categorical error:
Just as science is the only tool Dawkins and company are willing to use to arrive at knowledge of the natural truth, Protestants use only the Bible for determining what is revealed truth. And as many modern atheists reject anything that science cannot detect, so too do Protestants reject any teaching that is…

The Quest For "Unlimited Human Progress" is Really Destroying the Environment

Every time I read from the news of nature's decline due to pollution, how food supply can soon drop anytime, how plant and animal deaths are massively happening I can't help but blame it on one factor: SIN. Yes, sin and most people think it's a fantasy word. It wasn't just a fantasy word that kicked Adam and Eve out of Eden and cursed the Earth with all its imperfections. Sin brought disease and destruction to mankind. Unfortunately, man is to blame for the wanton destruction of the environment all in the name of "unlimited human progress".

You can't divorce science from the Creator and that's a fact. Yet you have people who want to benefit from science without considering the Creator. Christian scientists were conservative because they were aware of one truth that science without ethics is meaningless. I'd like to expand it to say that studying creation without the Creator is absolutely stupid. People can claim that removing God is the key to &qu…

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…

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…

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…
