“What’s Popular Isn’t Necessarily Right” Note by me.

“What’s Popular Isn’t Necessarily Right” Note by me.

What’s vogue/popular for many doesn’t mean it’s right or ok.
The popularity of a thing doesn’t equal it automatically being ok or right or moral or useful for individuals or society.
Appealing to the popularity of a thing or mere opinion of some in favor of a thing, is fallacious.
If people cared about clear thinking and avoiding fallacious reasoning, they’d reject mere opinions of some in favor of a thing as a valid reason for thinking it’s ok or right, they’d use critical thinking instead to evaluate, examine, critique, and reach a reasonable, logical, rational decision about the thing in question.

“Atheists and Life’s Meaning” note by me.

“Atheists and Life’s Meaning” note by me.
–originally just a long comment, shared here for all–

While not all atheists are nihilists, all nihilists are atheists.

Some atheists like to make up their own meaning of life in hopes of not succumbing to hopelessness, depression, or despair, to function sufficiently on a daily basis and appear to be living a happy life but underneath no one sees the reality of their inner emptiness and the uselessness of their superficial meaning of life.

Atheists deny the existence of God who created all.
They reject any claim or authority God deserves and demands by the fact that He’s the Creator, Maker, Sustainer, God.
They deny they’re made in God’s image.
They deny there’s sin and that they’ve disobeyed God’s laws and fall short of His glory.
They deny their need for a Savior, to save them from their sins, from just condemnation for transgression of God’s Law, they deny their need of grace, mercy, forgiveness, and salvation.

How can they find meaning in life when the deny the existence of God who gave them life?
They can’t find a real and valid meaning of life because they reject the source of it, that is, God.
They can hold on to a superficial meaning they’ve manufactured but it’s inadequate and useless in the long run, and for some even in the short run.

Their problem then is whether to keep denying the existence of God and His rightful claim on their life as Creator, Maker, Sustainer, Judge, or to come to believe in Him and embrace Him as God and source of meaning and purpose in life and follow the God’s precepts, principles, and commandments found in His Word for the good of humanity and the stability of the world.

It’s their choice and yes, without the Holy Spirit they won’t come to truth and repentance so truth must be told to them in love and the Holy Spirit asked to work in the life and heart of the atheist to lead them to the truth, to Christ, to salvation, to new life.

“Abortion is Murder” Note by me.

“Abortion is Murder” Note by me.
Very recently read in a book (pro-life) that mentioned the most common abortion procedures done and at what time usually in the pregnancy; nasty stuff, terribly evil, yet for some reason it’s legalized in so many places?
Just feel free to treat the most innocent and defenseless of human beings in wombs as disposable crap you’d rather never see because consequences of actions aren’t for facing or accepting by either the male or female?
That’s called 21st century progress in ‘health’care?
As said by many, it’s a culture of death that devalues human life, slowly but noticeably becoming barbaric toward each other.

What many pro-choice people don’t understand or just ignore is that it’s not the mother being aborted, it’s not her body being aborted, mutilated, butchered, it’s that of a defenseless separate body in their womb that’s being murdered at their request, one with brain activity, heartbeat, feels pain, all that any human has or does, just at a much earlier stage, it’s not a clump of cells by any stretch of imagination, it’s a real human being in there, is that so hard to understand?
Did they never learn that humans only give birth to humans?
Do they not know a whole new human is conceived and begins their life in the womb, doesn’t magically become a human only when birthed and declared wanted and allowed to live by mother or father?

“Las Vegas Tragedy” note by me.

“Las Vegas Tragedy” note by me.
What happened in Las Vegas is tragic but not something that wasn’t inevitable, for simple reasons.

For a place called Sin City by so many, were some people expecting it to be some kind of death-free sinners’ haven with no probability of such a massacre ever happening? Talk about foolish hope and unrealistic expectations and probabilities!

Do some fools out there still deny the existence of evil after this event? Yes, because they’re fools and live in denial.

If you boast of your allowing of sinful activities for a whole city, you’re not only inviting crime, terrible immorality and misery, you’re inviting death and should accept that such negative consequences will surely come.

If you’re really using your brain, you can’t pretend this kind of thing couldn’t or should never have happened there.
