I am constantly amazed by these people who think they are ever so pragmatic when they objectively evaluate ‘world religions’ and ‘holy books’ and ‘systems of religious belief’ and conclude that they are all of equal value , or perhaps, they are all of ‘no value whatsoever’.
These people who consider themselves ‘ever so smart’ are the type of people who:
1. Are quick to embrace science as absolute ‘fact’ and the ‘savior’ of mankind.
2. Are quick to dismiss the Bible and ‘faith in God’ as ‘superstitious nonsense’ and of little if any value in the grand scheme of things.
The SCIENTIFIC METHOD starts with OBSERVATION proceeds to QUESTION then formulates HYPOTHESIS which proceeds to EXPERIMENTATION which leads to ANALYSIS which results in CONCLUSION….. and then starts all over again.
Funny isn’t it that so-called intelligent people cannot see the application of this to BIBLICAL TRUTH and CHRISTIAN REALITY.
OBSERVE the change in the life of genuine Christians…… QUESTION what brings about this ‘humanly impossible’ change…. formulate the HYPOTHESIS that just maybe there is actually a SUPREME GOD after all and just possibly the Bible could be true in what it says…… EXPERIMENT by giving God a chance to prove Himself to you …… ANALYSE the outcome ….. and CONCLUDE that GOD is GREATER than the ‘apparent’ laws of nature because He exists OUTSIDE of His creation and therefore is not restricted by ‘laws of Physics’ that govern the normal operation of our material Universe.
My dear friend…. if you are reading this message…. I want you to know most assuredly that people who believe that ‘faith…. Bible …. the supremacy of Jesus Christ …. and the existence of God… are all superstitious hogwash invented by ignorant people to explain their world of ages past’….. are neither scientific nor honest….. but are manifesting supreme arrogance and pride…. how can a created animal in the material world believe that the whole thing came about by chance.
‘Laws’ do not make themselves…. nor can they create anything…. they are merely an OBSERVATION of the normal functioning of material systems within the world that they are a part of.
The Bible tells us exactly what is wrong with these people…. these so-called ‘brilliant’ scientists and ‘intellectuals’ that the world believes in….. they have CHOSEN to exclude GOD from their consideration…. their entire ‘science’ is constructed on the basis that there is NO SUCH BEING…… therefore they must necessarily look elsewhere for understanding, explanation and interpretation of the data being evaluated….. and in the process they have become FOOLS selling LIES to a gullible public who also would rather NOT believe in a HIGHER BEING because that would make them ACCOUNTABLE for the way they live their lives.
John wrote, ‘But these are written that ye might BELIEVE that Jesus is THE CHRIST, the Son of God, and that BELIEVING ye might have life through his name. (John 20:31)
This FAITH that the scientific community laughs at as foolishness is, in fact, at the foundation of the material Universe….. read Hebrews 11:3
Jesus made the observation,…. if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. (Matthew 17:20)
Those people who are quick to point out all the cases where FAITH FAILED ……. ignore the many, many cases where FAITH WORKED.
Maybe it is the UNCERTAINTY of whether it will work or not FOR YOU that makes you skeptical of FAITH ….. if that is the case, how can you expect it to work ? because such uncertainty is in itself a LACK OF FAITH.
I will have a great deal more to say about FAITH in future messages….. however, Power belongs to God (Psalm 62:11)…. if you lack faith ask God for it …. God is able to give you what faith you need for whatever you are facing today.
Be sure of one thing everybody BELIEVES something, it is at the very foundation of our existence
But contrary to the popular notion that “it does not matter what you believe as long as you are sincere”….. I want to tell you that it matters a great deal…… in fact, it is the most important thing in your life …… go back to John 20:31 and READ IT AGAIN
may your eyes be opened to see the TRUTH today.
