Religion loves to deploy magic whenever science deconstructs religion. When science picks religious beliefs apart, religion turns to magical incantations in order to convolve faith and reality. Evolution? God did that. The creation of the universe out of nothing? God did that. Who created God? God is eternal. Its magic!
How long should we allow such sleight of hand to be the
response to such questions? How dare
theists use such childish rebuttals as responses to these important questions! What do you think?
God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for
the degrading of their bodies with one another.
They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served
created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to
shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for
unnatural ones. In the same way the men
also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one
another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves
the due penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the
knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do
what ought not to be done. They have
become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They
are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,
slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of
doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no
fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that
those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very
things but also approve of those who practice them. – Romans
The Bible declares that homosexuals deserve death, but
there are those who still think that they can be gay and a Christian at the
same time. How is it that some people can
conflate these two ideologies? How can a
person consider themselves Christian in this day and age when the Bible says
that homosexuals deserve death for their “sins”?
How is it that God sees everything but failed to
intervene during black slavery, the crusades, women’s forced indebted
servitude, rape, child molestation, the outcasting and murder of homosexuals
and all of the mass genocides of the 19th and 20 centuries?
Proverbs 5:21 – The Lord sees everything you do.
Wherever you go, he is watching.
Hebrews 4:13 – Nothing in all creation is hidden from
God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to
whom we must give account.
Proverbs 15:3 – The eyes of the LORD are everywhere,
keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
As a final nail in the coffin of
the creation account, let us examine a definitive hole in the creation mythos on day five. On this day, birds
are created, alongside the animals in the seas. On day six, land animals are created. However, again in using the
fossil record, we find a glaring hole in this account. Birds are direct
descendants of dinosaurs. Fossil evidence establishes that dinosaurs
and birds had congruent features such as hollow, pneumatized
bones, were nest-builders and had similar digestive behaviors. Archaeopteryx is a classic example of
a fossil that fills a missing link gap.
us to our inevitable dilemma. Land animals are clearly created on the sixth day, after
birds! This runs in direct
opposition to what Paleontology has shown us! We can even
ignore the overwhelming evidence for evolution because the bible does
not subscribe to this fact. Let us examine the fossil record.
Fossils in lower layers died longer ago than specimens found in higher
layers. It can be viewed as the earth tree
rings. When do you ever find a bird
fossil at a portion of the earth’s strata lower than the first land
animals? Never! It never happens! Therefore, you can exclude
all of the overwhelming evidence that science has culled together, such as
similar bodily characteristics, habits, conclusive DNA evidence (it is scientifically proven that a T-Rex
and bird are a closer match DNA-wise than an alligator, a reptile) and the
fact that feathers developed in the fossil record with dinosaurs and no
other such animal. The layers of the stratum show that the land
animals came first and that birds came after. There is no way to provide
confluence to the text. It is irreconcilable.
Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you
love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt
offering on a mountain I will show you.” – Genesis 22:2
What kind of sick individual would put a parent in the
position of killing their child? How
could this be considered moral? It does
not matter that Yahweh/Jehovah recanted his mandate to Abraham and allowed his
son to live. Imagine what God wanted
Abraham to do as a test. He wanted
Abraham to slit his son’s throat and then set him on fire. Please re-read the previous sentence one more
time for emphasis. This is the God that
wants your adoration. This is why the
scourge of religion needs to be eliminated, not by force but by the
understanding that is what this God would like as devotion. Pure allegiance and service to this vile
creature is what it desires. This
monster can gift wrap the rest of the Bible as a sound foundation of morals but
this requested act is a testament to what God wants from us.
“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not
worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy
of me. – Matthew 10:37
Please remember both the example of Abraham and the
aforementioned scripture when thinking about where you devotions lie…
It is faith that was the impulse engine for the
Crusades, the Inquisition, the Nazi’s Holocaust, and other atrocities. Faith
is the motor that allows people to be complacent in their lives. Faith allows people to truly believe in miracles.
Faith can make a father like the biblical Abraham place a knife onto the
throat of his son. Faith can make a Jehovah’s
Witness withhold a blood transfusion for
themselves or significant others when that is the only cure. Faith allowed 19 men to fly into the twin
towers, the pentagon and an open field in
Pennsylvania. Conversely, it was only
facts that allowed the U.S. to kill Osama Bin Laden.
What do you think?
Is faith so strong that it can lead people to kill? Is faith a bad thing?
So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord
commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials,
and it became a snake. Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the
Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts: Each one
threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up
their staffs. – Exodus 7:10-12
Which God was
stronger? The God of the Bible or the gods

Nature Of Human Nature”
may never die due to the supposed comfort that it brings. Prayer has been
foisted upon parishioners as a way to directly communicate with God as a
means of comfort. However, what has
prayer ever done that was beneficial? If
two football teams pray for victory, one of their prayers will not be fulfilled.
The Islamic hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93 were praying to God
before they attempted to hit their intended target. The ironic thing is that
the passengers prayed to God as well.
What good did any of their prayers do?
