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.

Continue the Reformation Through Expository Preaching

It's not merely enough to protest against Rome. There are many who protest against Rome who are just as heretical as Rome. What's not too surprising is to find some "Baptist" preachers who reject the badly needed art of expository preaching. Why do we need expository preaching? To know why we need it we must first define it.

Defining expository preaching

This is what the book "By the Book: The Whys and Hows of Biblical Preaching" would define expository preaching:
Expository preaching. When the main theme, its main points and further development of the points of the points or sub-points are all derived from the content, context and structural flow of a longer text in Scripture. This is popular when expounding paragraphs, stanzas, and chapters of a book and especially when doing a series of preaching from a book. (p. 45)
Here is the definition from Got Questions on "What is expository preaching?":
Expository preaching involves the exposition, or co…

Continuing the Reformation Also Means Preaching Against Quack Evangelical Pastors

It's so easy to heckle on Roman Catholic priests and similar cultists but hard to acknowledge that Evangelical circles aren't free of wolves in sheep's clothing. What I thought about is how often you may think that a certain pastor is a man of God but he's just as much as a wolf in sheep's clothing as the Roman Catholic priests. Just because a person claims to be a pastor doesn't mean he's a man of God.

Should it be mentioned Jeremiah has condemned irresponsible pastors or shepherds with how they carry their jobs? Read them at Jeremiah 10:21, 12:10, 22:2, 23:1-2 and you'll find out the kind of pastors God hates. Jeremiah 3:15 has God promising to give pastors who will give understanding. The problem is that there are so many pastors who aren't even men of God. They are pastors by profession but they are not pastors in God's eyes. This is a warning to Christians that just because a pastor by profession doesn't mean the person is a man of God.…

The Difference Between Faith Results to Good Works vs. Adding Faith to Good Works

There's a huge argument between the Papists and the Reformers about what authentic faith is. The stand isn't just merely between Papists and the Reformers as it goes as far as Papists, anti-Catholic cults and the true born again Christians (Protestant or not) on what James means by faith without works is dead.

Is James saying that in order to get saved or to stay saved that you must add faith to good works?

Perhaps one reason why Martin Luther once thought of the Book of James as an epistle of straw was because it felt like the author added good works to saving faith. I remembered having a dialogue with a third degree cousin of mine who was a Roman Catholic apologist. He knew I was a former Catholic turned Baptist. I had a conversation with him and he told me that I should examine the Book of James to see good works are required for justification.

The Roman Catholic view as well as the anti-Catholic cultist view tends to use James' writing to justify their heresy. Here'…

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…

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…

Paul Washer's Quote to Slam the Prosperity Gospel

I really am so annoyed with all the prosperity gospel garbage because it is not biblical doctrine.  When I became a Christian, it is not about what it has done for me but what I have done for God.  If I am going to follow Christ, I can only expect to be ridiculed and persecuted.  If I am going to follow Christ then I expect the whole world to leave me behind.  Why do I expect that?  John 15:18-19 warns that the Christians are not of the world.  James 4:4 warns that you cannot be a friend of both the world and of God.

It is utterly foolish to say, "Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and you will get healing and prosperity.  You will get a Mercedes Benz."  The more I read through the words of Jesus, the more I realize He did not promise any of those garbage that the prosperity crowd promises.  Instead, I read more warnings about persecution for His Name's sake.  Being a Christian can also mean being unpopular, hated, rejected, a laughingstock for the wrong reas…
