Does the Bible State That God is the Author of Confusion?

Genesis 11: 7-9 (NASB); 7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language so that they will not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; they stopped building the city. 9 Therefore its name was called Babel because there the Lord confused the language of the whole earth, and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.

1 Corinthians 1: 27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,

According to the above scriptures, God is the author of confusion. The following scripture reads that He is not:

1 Corinthians 14:33; for God is not a God of confusion but of [m]peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

God is not the author of confusion but He approves of order and peace. However, there is no reason to believe that God cannot bring confusion or destruction to the rebels of God’s Word.
Read Deuteronomy 28:15; “But it shall come about, if you do not [o]obey the Lord your God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes with which I charge you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:

God can bring confusion to the wicked and those who do not obey the Word of God!

The Rapture Sign of 2017

Here is a very interesting article, scripturally accurate about the possibility of the Rapture of Jesus’ followers this year. I have bookmarked it and will consider the article for further review. I have also ordered the book “The Witness of the Stars” by E.W. Bullinger. I know that the Rapture is always being predicted, but this article looks like a valid argument!

Any thoughts?

Free Will: What Does It Mean Based On Scripture?

“Free Will” is a term that is commonly brought up in bible discussions, but what does it mean? Calvin said that it was a term that he didn’t want to bring up in conversation. In fact, Calvin wrote in “Institutes”: “Man will then be spoken as having this sort of free decision, not because he has free choice equally, of good and evil, but because he acts wickedly by will, not by compulsion. Well put, indeed, but what purpose is served by labeling with a proud name such a petty thing?” “But how few men are there, I ask, who when they hear free will attributed to man do not immediately conceive him to be master of both his mind and will, able of his own power to turn himself toward either good or evil…If anyone, then, can use his word without understanding it in a bad sense. I shall not trouble him on this account…I’d prefer not to use it myself, and I should like others, if they seek my advice, to avoid it”.

Nowhere in the bible does it say that we are “free” in the sense of being outside of God’s control. Neither does it read that we are allowed to be free to do right of our own volition without God’s power.

Absolute freedom that is totally out of God’s control is not possible. God maintains and directs all things providentially in this universe by Himself. So the challenge is to interpret the word “free.” If we were able to be “free” to make our own choices, then we would be equal to God in respect to our will. God will know our choices before we make them, but does that mean we are not free to make choices? Absolutely not.

Acts 4:27-28 27 “For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
28 to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur.

Why Does God Allow Suffering? Tony Costa

This is a question that athiests, non-Christians and even Christian believers ponder. Why does God allow suffering?
This is Tony Costa on 100 Huntley Street explaining as best he can as to why? His book “The Reason For God” is one that I have on my to-read-list.

Was Jesus Married To The Flying Spaghetti Monster?

Okay, now that I have your attention we are coming to the time of the year that draws closer to Christmas. Along with the time frame comes the expectant liberal media nonsense trying to attack Christ. As usual, there will be some “evidence” that Jesus was married, had children or was fictional; something along that ilk
.
BBC, CNN as well as many other secular will broadcast or print some nonsense that was poorly researched.

Please fellow Christians that it is your duty to research and defend these accusations as they come up! Read:

“But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence,” (1 Peter 3:15).
