“Foolish Words and the Gospel Truth.” Note by me.

“Foolish Words and the Gospel Truth.” Note by me.

It’s truly one of the stupidest things atheists and whoever else says or thinks such things as shown in the pictures below of the sign and the shirt, can think or say.
No matter how sarcastic they’re being, no matter if they are just joking or really believe their own words, see it for what it is.

 


It really shows atheist (and others’) ignorance, their pride, their darkened understanding, their closed, small minds; it shows they hate God and Christ; it shows they foolishly think Christ is on their level (a mere mortal they can kill); it shows their rebellion against the Creator and displays their sinfulness and their desperate need for but denial of their need for Christ the Savior.
They need most Christ whom they foolishly think they could kill with their fragile mortal hands when He comes back.
They need the Gospel which they deny is true or necessary or that it’s even good news for any.
They need to surrender to the God they’ve denied even exists; they need the Truth that sets free indeed; they need the Lamb of God to take away their sins and forgive them, to reconcile them to God, to change them from condemned sinners into redeemed saints, to save their souls and make them into who God wants them to be.
They need to see God’s truth (His whole Word, the Bible), but not just see it or consider it, they need to embrace it and really believe it for it to have a real effect on their life and soul and destiny.

We could smirk when we see such stupid signs and shirts with such messages on them, or we could get angry at them and spout our worst criticisms at such people and words, or we could look at it and see it as it is beyond the surface: a desperate cry of now-condemned souls who in vain fight against God and Christ but are in need of His grace and forgiveness and salvation through Christ.
They’re people we can pity and forget about or we can pray specifically about these lost ones because they really do need the prayers, for them to come to repentance and understanding of God’s truth.
The current state of their souls is a miserable and an unenviable one. Jesus said such people are already condemned, they’re on their way to Hell, regardless of what they say or believe otherwise. If we don’t believe Christ’s own words on this matter, we should stop calling ourselves Christians. Jesus died for such atheist fools and blind agnostics, for idolaters and pagans, to set them free from their bondage to sin, from the chains of their condemnation.
Jesus died for the unworthy, the undeserving, and the whole human race falls into that category. See, it’s not about our worthiness, it’s about God’s love and why He saw it right to make a sure way for sinners to be saved, forgiven, justified, reconciled to their Creator and made His children in Christ.

So then, while we will still see many more of such stupid signs or words from atheists or pagans, let it not turn you into one who just ignores those lost sinners, use it as a way to start a talk with them and tell them God’s truth, give them God’s Gospel, show them the love of Christ that is in you through actions and not just words. It’s not your part to make them accept the truth and be saved, you’re not the Holy Spirit, your part is all that Christ said is your part in the matter, so don’t dilute the truth and don’t give them half the truth, give them the whole Gospel in love and the Holy Spirit will do all that you can’t in the person’s heart and mind.

“Freedom in Christ” note by me.

“Freedom in Christ” note by me.

-Note: originally just a comment, shared here for others’ benefit-

John 8:32, 36
“32) And you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
“36) If the Son therefore will make you free, you will be free indeed.”

True freedom is found in the Son of God who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

There are plenty of counterfeit freedoms out there but all are insufficient and temporary, while freedom in Christ is the only sufficient and lasting freedom, the kind of freedom every person needs, whether they believe or realize that or not.

There are obvious implications and simple and logical conclusions we can draw from the verses quoted above.
If we don’t know the truth, then we’re not free. If we don’t or won’t want to know the truth, then we don’t want to be free, and the fault is our own, we’ve no one to blame but ourselves. You must know the truth to be made free by it.
If we’re not made free by the Son, then we’re still slaves to sin, to lies, and we must come to the Son of God to be made free by Him, in Him, through Him. The Son makes free indeed, for real, truly, in the only significant, meaningful sense of the word, and this freeing is something we all need but can’t and won’t get outside of the Son of God, that is, there’s no substitute for Christ, there’s no other viable or real option for us if we want to be made free.

Christ alone can set free all who are slaves to sin. To know true freedom, the spiritual that affects all other areas of life, one must surrender to and know and love Christ. Surrender to Christ is the beginning of truly living.
There’s no way around it.

“Humanism Ruining Schools” note by me.

“Humanism Ruining Schools” note by me.

Getting rid of all things Christianity-related from school has been the main agenda/goal of humanists/liberals for over 100 years now. With every such additional Christian thing they lie about and call unconstitutional, they replace it with their humanistic thing.
So things degrade, schools get worse and killings in them increase; test scores become laughably low; students become dumbed down and illogical zombies, which is the liberal goal; Christian influence fades and humanism’s cancer spreads.
It’s not that schools are just secular or unreligious, it’s that Christianity and its light in schools has been replaced with the religion of humanism and its darkness spreading lies, foolishness, confusion.
It can be reversed but the damage has been done and people must wake up from their sleep of stupidity and political correctness and stop listening to the lie that there’s no religion spread in schools. There is; it’s nasty and its name is humanism.

“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.

“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?

God commands sexual purity before marriage (and fidelity during) because …

God commands sexual purity before marriage (and fidelity during) because He knows what’s best and His laws aren’t man-made so they’re not flawed or erroneous.
Teenagers are to be taught this not only because it’s right but also because it will benefit them greatly; they’ll shine as examples of purity in a world obsessed with sex and propagating immorality.
Teenagers being taught sexual purity will help them avoid much trouble and heartbreak and the consequences of such immoral actions.

Basically, whatever God says in His Word on this matter is what we should heed and obey out of our love for Him and for the good of others.

Humanism glorifies man and denies God’s existence …

Humanism glorifies man and denies God’s existence.
Humanism is America’s most popular religion right now and they worship at the altar of moral relativism and political correctness.
Humanism praises the shallow, foolish, and vain.
“Anything but God” is their slogan; rejection of reality is their perception.
Idiots are too many to count; they’re the products of the cancer of humanism that corrupts America and elsewhere.
