No imagination necessary

(Heard a short lecture by the self made guru of godlessness Hitchens, and how his disciples hang on his every word;  I’m impressed at his level of abhorrence for all religion in general, and for God’s word in particular. His arguments are so lousy and lame, it’s a shame he cannot connect the dots of life as his words are painful to hear, so this Bud’s for him and his clones.)

Imagine if you will a world where there is no rain, no water, no rivers, no lakes, no oceans, no trees, no dirt, no fruit, no song birds, no bees, no dogs, no sun, no moon, no stars, no love, no joy, no sand, no camel, no prairie, no lion, no snow, no Everest, no heat, no cold, can you imagine these things NOT being?

Can you conceive of no male or female, no man or woman, no north or south, no east or west, no TIME, made without design? Of course you cannot, UNLESS you refuse to engage the God given brain.

I loathe the godless mind, which enjoys itself and feeds like a leech from every emolument of life without stopping for one second to say ‘thank you,’ for you see, after all, ‘thanks’ is an expression of the recognition of the hand of another’s courtesies, courtesies which are non existent in the life and times of accidents or chaos.

Go ahead, keep telling yourself the rising sun is just another accidental occurrence today, that its heat and light just so happened to arrive at the right moment, taking over the night duties of the moon. Keep telling yourself that the owls who deferred to the morning light and gave way to song birds are somehow existent because of a train wreck.

There is no song bird singing at a trainwreck. The ones laughing at funerals are paid professionals- this is no time for fun and games. If a man, or woman for that matter, thought sincerely for one second of his life, there is no other conclusion to a sane mind than: ‘in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’

Am I sure? Oh yeah,

‘For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:’

Did you catch that? Clearly seen? No ambiguity, no shadow, no question. And to add insult to injury, these things are understood. Ouch. So men understand, they simply suppress this understanding and say it is wrong. Go ahead, go into a boxing ring with your conscience. You will lose before you throw the first punch. The scars left by the conscience are punishing where God is denied.

And the result? You have no excuse for your self made ignorance, and this is why the godless despises scripture, because God’s word reveals truth at every turn. And we are not even talking about redemption here as this is a topic for another time. Creation is easy, life 101 so to speak.

Is it any wonder that to the believer, God’s word is a savour of life, and to all others it is a savour of death. Same book. Same words. One received. One reviled. And this is understood, clearly.

    Well thought out CS, however you have forgotten that theists should go ahead and tell themselves that God is all good and all-knowing as the fanatical nut shoots up the school kids or rapes the child without divine interjection. Theists should also tell themselves God’s miracles saves loved ones from disaster or removes cancerous growths from bodies when God seems to have forgotten about the 20 thousand kids that die every day from starvation and disease. Maybe keep telling yourself when I pray good things happen such as locating my lost car keys or relief from my painful ear wax problems.

      Steve, your return is weak, and here’s why.

      You are not judicious in your comparisons, ever, and here once again.

      You would accuse a carpenter of malfeasance because the swing set structure he made for his family was abused and mis-used— kids being bold where they should have had restraint- doing things they were not enabled to do- causing death-

      And here you are blaming the carpenter??? Not too smart.

      The original acts of the Creator were perfect…………gee I wonder what happened to the degree we now have earthquakes, tsunamis, nations wanting to eradicate each other/ disease/ and the love of money is president on every continent- and it is God’s fault?

      Really, you going with that? Scripture, per Genesis, sets the table with the beginning of all things, and we know it is true- just like u know it is true- yet while u suppress this fact, I do not.

      While you see evil in God, I see none. As long as u are blind to the effects of sin, you will be clueless every time you read of God’s return acts to the people on earth.

      And no, please do not preach ‘science’ to me, as I am well aware of this lying little god. Water embarrasses false science every time.

        If this God was perfect CS he would have designed perfection in everything. The fact is that nothing is perfect, every single human every single life form has a defect, or a mutation, a flaw, fault, or disease etc. Man cannot always make something perfect; he cannot always be right or exactly as God is supposed to be….perfect.

        Free will you say, God gave free will to man and beast, right? Why would he do that because it is obvious that would destroy perfection. You do not allow anything you own that you believe is perfect to be damaged by anything because you would like to retain its perfection. Obviously your God tried to create perfection and in fact discovered he could not as the Adam and Eve story proves, therefore this must also make Gods failings equal to human failings only because the imperfect bronze age people were clearly not able to invent what they believed to be a perfect God. Man is truly created in your God’s image.
