My New Years Eve Message

Thanks to all of those who follow my blog! This blog has been read all over the globe, and I appreciate it. I thank you all! Have a great 2015 and praise the Lord and the Grace He gives us all! Can you imagine how horrible this world would be if God’s Grace was not with us? Those who say “How could God allow this?” and “Where was God when that plane went down?” If God took His hands off the wheel, we would have already obliterated ourselves by now!

Please pray for peace on earth for the year 2015!

God Bless

Atheist Dialogue:

As most dialogue with atheists, interacting with one atheist becomes a “swarm” of other atheists” but the following is what I could do to reconstruct an atheist worldview argument: I started by stating that evolutionary worldview….” Then was quoted:

Evolutionist:”Evolutionary worldviews cannot account for preconditions of intelligibility that makes science possible!” – So what? Neither can religion. However, we evolved to make sense of reality as it is. If we did not change to make sense of reality, we wouldn’t have survived in the first place. The universe is intelligible for the same reason rocks are visible….they aided our survival.

Me:”So what?” First I will not comment on any religion except for Christianity. The accounts in Genesis work perfectly well with science! You can’t explain the order in nature as the result of a chaotic origin. Do not conflate science with evolution. How do you know what reality is anyway, in your worldview?

Let’s take DNA for instance; It would have had to originate from a mind. Have you heard of SETI? If not, their criteria for the possibility or evidence of life outside of our solar system would be a series of radio signals. Now if these signals gave us information to make even a simple machine, would that not be reason enough to believe a mind was behind it?

With DNA we get encoded information on how to build a human body! You say we evolved to make sense of all this, then would you be saying we gained information through macro-evolution? You still cannot explain how that “rock” got there anyway…and a non-life form evolved into a life form? Chemical and Physical laws don’t allow for it…

So far crickets…

A Lesson On The Heresy Of Roman Catholicism!

Here is my Brother in Christ Matt Slick explaining how the Roman Catholic Faith has fallen to apostasy, ( total desertion of or departure from one’s religion, principles, party, cause, etc.. ) Dictionary.com

Pray for the believers in the Roman Catholic Doctrine to have the Holy Spirit show them the true Gospel!

The Mustard Seed: Is It The Smallest Seed?

Mark 4:31New American Standard Bible (NASB)

31 It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the soil, though it is smaller than all the seeds that are upon the soil,

The “mustard seed defence” is often brought up by unbelievers as proof of biblical error; but does this prove the bible is erroneous on this passage?
The Mustard seed being referred to is the common black mustard plant. This plant was used for medicinal reasons as well as a condiment and as a vegetable. Of course a quick search will prove that it is not the “smallest seed”, but it was in reference to the type of seed that was sown by the Jews in Israel at the time of Jesus. So it WAS the smallest seed if you take this scripture in context!

Centering Prayer: What Is It? Is It Dangerous?

A term and action is being pushed by the emergent church called “Centering Prayer” or also known by a few other monikers such as “Contemplative Prayer.” and a few more.

This is practiced by “emptying the mind” and “stillness”, and in many cases repeating something to feel God’s presence. It is based on occult and eastern religious practices. Emptying the mind is NOT Christian as it opens up the Christian to demonic influences.

Contemplateiveoutreach.org recommends the following four guidelines (steps):

1.Choose a sacred word as the symbol of your intention to consent to God’s presence and action within.

2.Sitting comfortably and with eyes closed, settle briefly and silently introduce the sacred word as the symbol of your consent to God’s presence and action within.

3.When engaged with your thoughts, return ever-so-gently to the sacred word.

4.At the end of the prayer period, remain in silence with eyes closed for a couple of minutes.

These steps reek of occultism.

Romans 12:2- 1-2 (NASB) clearly contradicts the centering prayer practice…

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

We as Christians are to seek God, but not by vain repetitious prayer! We must seek God with an active mind. Stay away from this practice that is occult in origin.

God Bless

Accidental Chemical Interaction?

From the evolutionary worldview: “If human beings are just the accidental result of chemistry working over time, why would they be worthy of respect? Would we hold a funeral service if a few pounds of baking soda were destroyed by reacting with vinegar? Clearly, human beings are not just complex chemical reactions. If people are just chemistry, then they have no choice in what they do – just as vinegar has no choice but to react to vinegar. Therefore why should we punish people who do evil if they have no choice? There could be no such thing as human freedom or dignity if evolution were true.”

Scientists Again Wrong! Water Origins.

Read this, this morning.

http://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/dec/10/water-comet-67p-earth-rosetta

Perhaps these scientists could find valuable reading in the Book of Genesis? I pray they do!

Genesis 1: 1-10 (NASB) is very clear…

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.

6 Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. 8 God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.

9 Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.

God Bless
