Glad to be Resuming My WordPress Site

121314_ Diff bio picI began posting here some months ago but afterward stopped and moved to other projects for a while. It is now December 2016 and I feel I have now determined the most suitable purpose for this website. I (James Lowrance) will use this venue to write mostly about Christian and Biblical subjects . My blog posts will occasionally feature written excerpts from the book-transcripts that audiobooks were produced from but mostly, articles will be original with no quotes from my other resources.

I cover many subjects on Bible teaching/theology and some on health (specific disorders and diseases). Many of those covered, are illnesses I experience myself. Many patients like to hear from others who have “been there“. In other words, folks who have experienced or are experiencing their same health problems. They relate via patient-to-patient quite well, rather than from doctor instruction alone (which is also very important).

I will also have some blogs on a few business subjects. These will be focused on the various aspects of publishing but also on the subject of “invention marketing and licensing“. I plan to make posts on these subjects as interesting as possible but they may appear as only one or two blog posts per day, so that I build this website in a quality fashion.

I have been writing online since year 2003 and I began publishing audiobooks in year 2008, so I have a fairly large size backlog of eBooks ( about 100 titles) that I also published as paperback books and eventually as audiobooks as well. Please keep checking back to the site because new blog posts will probably be waiting on you to hear and read!
HERE’S AN EXAMPLE of an audio message I will post on different subjects in articles:

Atheistic Satirical Animated Film about God being a Murderer

NOTE for the start of this article: Why do atheists often bring up the taking of life by God or by those he sent, as Biblically recorded, when they never bring up the fact that vast numbers of babies die by the hands of people in the USA. From 1967-2017 (in 50 years): 60,440,000 babies were aborted in the United States. Since WWII, 1.8 billion babies have been aborted worldwide. Their disinterest in my opinion is because it doesn’t suit their agenda; it is a conflict of interest and they don’t care. Now to the article – – –

THE SUBJECT:

I had an online animated film pointed out to me by my wife; the producer of it having shared it numerous times on a social media website, along with other atheists doing the same. What was surprising to me, was not the film per se but rather that the share we saw it from, was by someone who had previously said only a couple of months ago, that it was not his purpose to make fun of Christian’s/Bible Believer’s faith. It was instead, as they put it “to help Christians understand where they (atheists) were coming from but in a polite non-attacking way”. Well, they apparently were put in their place a time too many (frustration) because by their sharing of the film, they became partakers of credit for it: “Anyone who encourages such people becomes a partner in their evil work.” (2 John 1:11 NLT).

The attempted point of the lengthy (for one subject) animated film, is that God – by sending His chosen people the Israelites (e.g. Hebrews, Jews; His choice of choosing the Jewish people, going back to Abraham of the early Old Testament), to kill off villages of people, makes God a murderer. These Hebrew people, as they were referred-to in the Old Testament, until Jacob was re-named “Israel” by God Himself, were settling on the land God promised them but that was delayed by their 400 years of enslavement by the Egyptian people. As they claimed the land, they found squatters on it and when traveling to it as well. In some cases, they could spare women and children and make them a part of their developing nation. In other cases, God commanded them to kill every living person in these cities villages or encampments. Read further below for more on this latter-mentioned aspect.

What the atheists will often claim, is that this made God a breaker of his own commandment “You shall not murder/kill. “and to make others do so as well, however, this sense of the Hebrew word in the original language means “to kill without a righteous cause”. If for example, there were people invading our land of the USA, to kill us and we knew their purpose was highly unrighteous (e.g. to take over our land) we would attempt to kill them first. This type of thing has gone on between nations at an escalating pace for millennia. Is there a right side and a wrong side to each war in most cases? Yes. What righteous causes would God have for destroying a colony, village or encampment? Idol worship was a major one because a nation can become so enthralled with idols that God the Creator of all things will literally be forgotten. God did not want this happening to His chosen people through which he would eventually birth His only “begotten” Son – born by conception in Mary, the mother of his physical body, by the Holy Spirit.

Without Jesus (Yeshua), the world that became fallen due to Adam and Eve submitting their selves as servants to obey Satan (Romans 6:16, Genesis 3:17), we wouldn’t have a Messiah (sent one, redeemer) to take that curse off willing mankind. This brings me to another reason people were slain as the Israelites traversed to the Holy Land were Jesus would eventually be born. There was a time as recorded in Genesis Chapter 6, in which fallen angels (“Nephilim” – fallen ones) lured/tempted people to worship them “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14). Following are 3 different translations from Genesis 6:1-4 showing that this angel worship turned into them interbreeding with human women.

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” (KJV)

“Now a population explosion took place upon the earth. It was at this time that beings from the spirit world looked upon the beautiful earth women and took any they desired to be their wives. Then Jehovah said, “My Spirit must not forever be disgraced in man, wholly evil as he is. I will give him 120 years to mend his ways.” {a warning – the flood was coming but “Noah was perfect in all his generations”} In those days, and even afterwards, when the evil beings from the spirit world were sexually involved with human women, their children became giants, of whom so many legends are told.” (TLB)

“When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.” (NIV). Thor? Superman? Neptune? etc.… – Some embellishment and some reality? Goliath was 9′ 9″ and wielded a spear with a 15lb head on it. And, why are excavations finding such large numbers of ancient, giant human skeletons?

When Joshua and Caleb, 2 of the 12 Hebrew/Israelite spies who were sent to spy-out the land of Canaan Numbers 13:1-33, reported back to Moses along with the other 10 spies, they said that it was a land of “giants” but that it also “flowed with milk and honey” (meaning a land of plenty and good things). A sample of the land’s produce hung between two men on a pole; a single cluster of grapes. They ended their report saying, “We are well able to take the land.” Why? Because they were among the spies that had faith in God’s directive to do just that. The 10 others were fearful to attempt taking back God’s land of promise to them and said that the giants were so large, that they were all but “grasshoppers in their sight”. Therefore, they wandered in the desert for 40 years with many calamities befalling them. Joshua and Caleb however, were the only 2 of the original 12 spies who were allowed to enter the land of Canaan after Israel’s often miserable years of wandering in the dessert. The other 10 spies died after bringing fear to their people that God could not empower them to destroy a land full of the Nephilim.

These are among the reasons God destroyed certain peoples, as related to us by the atheists most hated book, The Holy Bible.

Culturally Evolved and Legally Accepted Indescent Exposure

There’s a picture online of a female sexual abuse victim walking around in short, shorts, protesting her horrific experience. A somewhat feminist-minded woman would possibly chime-in saying WELL, then you must be the type of male chauvinist who believes women are to blame for being sexually assaulted. NO, not to blame but victims of our sexual culture that contributes to the actions of sexual predators! Yes this is argued and has been for many years but it would certainly seem logical to an intelligent thinking person in my opinion. Another part of my response to the male chauvinist accusation (this might also anger some people) would be that women will consent to relations with men during a moment of passion and immediately feel gilt and regret it afterward (NOT TRUE in all cases). This may be headed-off with the claim that it was non-consensual.

Women for the most-part cannot stand for it to even be known that they-too have a sex drive – in some cases exceeding that of the average man. Regardless of this fact it is my belief that the majority of rape claims filed, do genuinely occur and perpetrators should be recognized as lifetime sexual predators for victimizing a woman or women-plural, or in some cases, boys. The latter listed victimizing has been perpetrated by female school teachers, who in some cases send indecent pics of their selves to their VICTIMS! For women who are victims but do not dress in indecently-exposed manners, how do the women who do practice this type of deviance help such victims? Perpetrators can be sexually-charged (still not an excuse) by women who display their selves as a walking soft pornography display.

I am a Christian man with enough struggles of my own to be pure of eyes and heart (“But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” – Matthew 5:28). What I don’t need is such a large percent of young and older women, walking in every direction I look, such as at a discount department store, indecently dressed. With God as my witness, I look away in the vast majority of cases but I am also human and fail to do so at times. They wear the tightest possible tops, many worn to accentuate the upper body, including special-made braziers and shorts that are nearly as revealing as a bikini or that are as accentuating as one. In some cases attire is worn to show a woman’s midriff and more (top of hips, bellybutton and lower ribcage).

Most men of course don’t complain but we who truly love our wives and the Lord Jesus Christ, perceive this as a type of sexual harassment (it certainly qualifies as that in the workplace). A feminist might laugh at such a statement; in fact some women in general might  laugh, simply because it’s very seldom stated. It is a type of sexual deviance by females however, although it is taboo to point out this TRUTH. They experience a type of satisfaction by the public sexual exhibitionism they engage in. Isn’t it deviant for women wanting to attract men and seeking to have them sexually aroused which is tantamount to soft porn? OF COURSE many people in general will also laugh at these statements but this is further proof that desensitization has slowly crept into our culture regarding women taunting men with near-nudity – what used to be called “being a tease”.

Then again there are true victims who are indeed not consenting or indecently dressed but are being forced/violated by sexual abusers. The allowable dress code for young and older women however does contribute to these incidences and I don’t care if the highest supreme court justice on earth says otherwise; some men who are sexually-charged by this indecent exposure by women, are acting out. Even in the early 1950s women could not legally wear these styles and would be placed in jail for doing so)! With this said, which sex has fought endlessly for literally centuries to wear clothing with more and more bodily exposure? It was women, beginning with the Women’s Suffrage Movement in the 1800’s (19th century). This and ongoing feminist movements were about voting rights and claims such as men not doing their share of housework while he held full time or overtime work at an occupation along with homestead land upkeep (the latter complaint displays an obvious imbalance).

In these early days we can laugh at the swimsuits shown in old pictures which women demanded to wear in the 1800s and early 1900’s but as things evolved in a deviant direction, we have today the 21st century “wedge-bottom bikini” (yes, it is what it sounds like). Why do women place priority on wearing the sexiest possible clothing, makeup, shoes, painted toenails and fingernails, etc…? It is because it empowers them and gives them opportunity to feel strength in making men feel uncomfortable for various reasons. Men resent women for constantly teasing them with provocative clothing. What can put a large dent in this agenda by women, is the fact that truly beautiful women outwardly are rare. But when you see the purposefully-hired female news anchors for example, being mostly eye-catchingly beautiful and news clips of beaches were mostly bodies made for swimsuits go, this respectfully misrepresents how attractive the average woman is.

Some women young and old are beautiful, some have medium attractiveness and others are homely but have many qualities otherwise. These facts dispel the myth a bit further, that women are all supposed to be of the beautiful body type. As a side-note, the ancient sculptor’s, commemorated the male form as much, if not possibly more than they did the female form. One myth developed and perpetrated by females is the “fairer sex” cliché taken too far. I personally believe it to be true, considering that the fairness ranges, just as good looks do with men. Fine specimens of men also wear revealing clothing and as a 100% heterosexual man, I don’t agree with this either (e.g. Speedos and shirtless).

They do indeed turn the heads of women but men seemingly do less indecent exposure of dress than do women. Is sexual exhibitionism not a crime when looked at honestly? Yes, but the population has become so desensitized to the improper/inappropriateness of it, largely because men are stimulated more easily by sexual exposure of women but not too far ahead in how women are also attracted to highly attractive men. The world has sexual deviance hang ups and as the saying goes “enough said” but in this case “way more than enough said” (with complete honesty on this writer’s part).  JML

Christians Oppressed by the Demonic of Ephesians Chapter Six

I made a video posted today but one small add-in story I planned but forgot to put into it, is the fact that a church Pastor actually felt an extreme oppression I was going through (hear video for details), without my ever telling him I was going through it (discernment of spirits – I Corinthians 12:10). Oppression is not possession. It’s being “pressed down from the outside”. The video can help bring better understanding and the Apostle Paul himself experienced this (Paul said: “…Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.”- 2 Corinthians 12:7 NIV).
.
I was getting ready to speak at this particular Pastor’s church and harsh oppression hit me, so much so that I felt absolutely sick but I kept a happy composure. I noticed the Pastor (a man not related to me) when handing me the microphone, had a terrible look on his face. I talked to him a couple days later and asked that he be totally honest about what made him look like he was about to walk-the-plank, so to speak and I actually knew what his answer would be.
.
He told me he felt an extremely strong oppressive spirit but was reluctant to say he thought it might be coming from me. I told him “yes it was” and told him, I would not have taken that service to teach if I knew that was going to happen (inwardly I knew I should not be at the pulpit). It was only a couple other times previous to this that I spoke for a service at his church during my struggle to become delivered from severe oppression and to re-dedicated my life to God.
.
The Lord did deliver me, gloriously PRAISE GOD! – But this was yet another very strong confirmation that my battle was one of demonic oppression. Very few Christian people will testify of their horrific struggles with those we “wrestle against” (Ephesian 6), in fact many Christians stay away from this type discussion as much as possible. I’m of the few who will let my negative battles with the enemy, possibly help others for the sake of Our Lord Jesus Christ! Call me fanatical if you like but I know the time is short and the enemy’s battle against Christians is increasing.
.
Being oblivious to the “wiles of the devil,” (Ephesians 6:11) is as dangerous as it gets. Not everyone becomes extremely oppressed by the enemy but God delivers on all levels and we cannot “tempt God” as I did when I developed an area of satanic stronghold to a certain area of sin (Mathew 4:7). My repentance eventually became a weak pretense (I was backslidden while attempting works for God) and He taught me a very strong lesson (2 Corinthians 4:9 – “Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed ;”).

Fellow Christians Attacking when You Defend Bible Faith History

end times summationFellow Christians I have a story to tell:  A man of God (not related to me) placed disagreeing posts on the heels of posts I made of recent on a social media site, regarding the protection of Protestantism. This being the reformation movement led by French – John Calvin and German – Martin Luther beginning in the early 1500s. For reasons I suspect but am not absolutely sure of, the man on the media site, berated France, comparing its warring to the peaceful Protestant revivals in Britain/England. He apparently felt its in-country civil war in the late 1700s was barbaric and yet America was having a revolutionary war of its own to break free of Britain at the same time period in the late 1700s. I diplomatically replied to what he apparently misunderstood and he unfriended me. I WAS NOT going to unfriend him and I love him in Christ as a brother. I will post only my answers to him below. This IS NOT to berate the man. No name is used –  it is for example purposes; not only to show how misunderstanding occurs but also how arguments between fellow Christians arise over trivial things (this time “dates” – World History events that happened 100s of years apart). I posted these replies, shown following as an imperfect man, the best I possibly could. {NOTE: From 19,000 to 40,000 died in the civil war within France (late 1700s). Approximately 11,000,000 died during the Protestant Reformation, led by a French and a German leader beginning in the early 1500s – events that were 275 years apart.}
.
My 1st Reply: “If I may, the Reign of Terror in France was a revolutionary war from the late 1700s, much like America had with Britain in 1775 – 1783. It was within the country itself regarding France. The founders of New England America, wanted to establish their own separate land-mass country rather than Britain taking it over, to make it British territory. The Protestant wars involving France and several other countries including Protestant Germany, occurred much earlier in year- 1517 and ended tentatively in Approx. 1648 (after a war called “The 30 years’ War”). If Roman rule, had been allowed to continue over most of Europe, which included the religious and political Papacy, there very likely would not have been “revivals happening with Charles and John Wesley and George Whitefield in England”.
.
My 2nd Reply: I wanted to see what your reaction would be (I actually knew what it would be). You have just repeated much of what I already said, I just didn’t use the details you went and searched-out before posting yours. Why did I want to see your reaction? Because you often post on the heels of other minister’s teachings, simply for the sake of disagreeing (too many times to be coincidence). My major with Liberty University was Archeology of the New Testament – no point in saying that but like you pointing out your minor in History, I mention it anyway (?). I’ve had suspicions of who would post a disagreement and my Minister Brother-in-Law was right in regard to your wanting to argue – for the sake of argument. Great Britain was governed by the Roman Empire, from 43 to 410 AD and was actually called Roman-Britain (Roman Ruler-ship 367 years). Possibly you are Catholic and if so, I’m sorry if I insulted your sensibilities in that area but I will teach what I believe God has called me to teach.
.
My 3rd Reply: Regardless of cause, the Revolutionary War was the new-founded America’s “revolt” against many things of England but foremost because they – England would not take “no” as an answer from the “New England” states and they wanted America to be their territory. Go into more of the ins and outs if you like but I am through with this thread. It attempts to highjack the purpose of my posts on how Protestantism was preserved literally worldwide. Your first post about “While France was having a Revolutionary war, England was having Revival” (my paraphrase), is a somewhat fragmented statement. The first point about the French which really doesn’t go with your other thought and followed by points about your Gospel heroes (mine too) was definitely a timing I could see coming from my posts about the French Huguenots and German Lutherans. I was raised Baptist but enjoyed membership in Pentecostal churches as well due to my job as a younger man, taking my family to areas where only one or the other was available. There is far less difference between them than most people realize. But….some people love to argue.
.
On the very same day that I made the preceding replies to the man, I had a neat, blessed thing happen that same night. To repeat what I wrote above; I posted some replies I made to a man who posted to me about “when the French were having civil wars, England was experiencing Gospel revival” (my paraphrase). A lady we’ve known here in our town for only a few months was walking and came toward my wife and me as we sat on our front porch. She stopped and we somehow began talking about church denominationalism (I did not begin this subject). She was raised Baptist as I was but she is now attending a full-Gospel church (Pentecostal church if you will). She still loves her Baptist roots as I do.
.
At one point she said “if it weren’t for the Frenchman John Calvin and the German man Martin Luther, we would not have freedom to worship as Protestants but America would be under Roman rule today.” She also said that people confuse the French revolution with the Protestant movement that involved the French and she ended with telling me about her history studies background and about the large library of history materials she owns (DVD sets, etc…). I told her that she just stated to me what I stated to a man online, almost verbatim and I was totally amazed. She then said “God has just sent you a confirmation.”
.
There are those who will think this is an exaggeration/sensationalism but it is not. The Lord is my witness to this and my wife Jan was present and she confirmed online that I did not embellish anything. Lastly, I wrote a 5,940 word book, several weeks before any of this incident occurred, so the man who told me I am writing/speaking on things I don’t know about may also find the book. It took me many months of study to even write the booklet at the 5,940 word length for The National Huguenot Society.

Seeing False Teachers around every Corner versus Righteous Judgement

Shoving Christianity down throatsJesus stated: “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”

What’s one thing happening in the world of evangelical Christianity that is somewhat disturbing? It is a practice by some Christians who are constantly seeing false doctrine in messages given by true ministers of God (on occasion their suspicions are correct). Could a message have errors rather than truly false teaching within it? YES, the only perfect teacher was Jesus Christ himself. There are for example, MANY versions of creationism being taught by sincere ministers. Does this mean that those who proclaim the wrong versions are all going to hell? My belief is that teachings which are “sincerely wrong” and not purposefully false, will not cause these ministers an eternity without God.

There is very definitely a true definition of false teachers, versus men in error and the Christians who are SO anxious to label sincere ministers as false need to see and understand the differences (Paul actually confronted Peter for being in error Galatians 2:11-13). In short, errors are not purposefully corrupting the meaning of the scriptures for dishonest reasons, while false teachers are described as “ravening wolves in sheep’s clothing” (Matthew 7:15). They are in other words, out to deceive for purposeful reasons – usually self-gain of some type. As a follow-up regarding Peter, he certainly did accept Paul’s admonition and he continued to evangelize during his lifetime, through to his death. “Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.” (Psalm 105:15).

The “False Teacher” and “False Teaching” accusation is thrown around at people who teach God’s Word – The Holy Bible, like darts that hit both friends in Christ Jesus’ Gospel and enemies to God’s Word as well (Ephesians 6:16). Unfortunately this often comes from trivial things that are not essential to salvation but that people want to hold at least some position on (e.g. there are MANY positions by evangelical Christians on the subject of creationism, for example). Are all of those who are wrong on their positions apart from the truly correct one, all going to hell? I personally do not believe so. Churches also disagree regarding the “Once saved always saved” position. The timing of the Rapture is disagreed on even by people attending same churches (pre, mid or post Great-Tribulation). Are those on the incorrect side of these doctrines all going to hell? Again, in my belief, NO.

In many instances fellow Christians will disagree on a teaching simply because they have never heard it before (of course they say; it can’t be true if they’ve never heard it before {???}). Maybe their own church fails to teach on a specific truth in The Holy Bible or they do teach it but their doctrine IS WRONG (a truly good church can be wrong on certain doctrinal aspects). I again ask, are they all going to hell? In the YouTube audio I made, I explain the differences between error in teaching (sincere mistakes) and true false teaching (purposeful for evil intent).

There’s also the fact that some Christians out there love to point out things they believe are in error, which gives them a warped type of pleasure (e.g. to hurt others and to feel somehow superior). There is usually a correlation with these people, who at the same time are often busybodies and gossipers. When it comes to ministers Jesus said: “And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire.” Yes part of tithes and offerings go to pastors, evangelists, etc… But there are false ministers, whose idol is riches. Jesus said “you shall know them by their fruits”. Listen to the audio link posted below for an example of a highly interesting subject that can cause uninformed Christians and those looking intentionally for false doctrine as an example of a doctrine that can produce this very result (while being absolutely scripturally substantiated).

Snap Judgments against Christian Teachers as being False

In this article I use my teachings on the historical Protestant Reformation Movement of the 16th and 17th centuries. Fellow Protestants who have not heard about this highly historical and fully substantiated event, may resort to calling it a false teaching simply based on the fact that they haven’t heard about it before. Judgment of Christian teaching, should be done as the scriptures direct us to do so (cross-referencing scriptures “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15 – KJV). Now here is the admonishment I wrote, following below. – – –
.
Superficially judging teachings (snap-judgments) or judging the teacher who gives them actually goes against God’s Word/will. On the other hand some false teaching is immediately apparent but we are to “Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly.” (Jesus: John 7:27 NLT).

I’m amazed at how Christians want to take the easy route (actually no effort at all) of judging something they see posted by a Christian and because they haven’t heard these things before, they immediately judge it as “false”. My posts about my being of French Huguenot linage, is a confirmed historical fact. What some Christians do however, is say “There goes James Mark getting into some strange religion.” Here’s the actual definition of “Huguenot”: “A French Protestant of the 16th–17th centuries. Largely Calvinist, the Huguenots suffered severe persecution at the hands of the Catholic majority, and many thousands emigrated from France.” (World History, Chapter 18- Section 2).
.
The biggest war the Huguenots had with the anti-protestant people was 30 YEARS IN DURATION, with an estimated 8-million people killed. The previous smaller wars (e.g. Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre), killed an estimated 3-million. I DO NOT agree with all aspects of Calvinism nor do I agree with all aspects of Martin Luther’s teachings. They also disagreed with each other on certain aspects (e.g. Calvin taught ‘predestination’, Luther taught ‘free gift salvation by grace’). I can still however, see what their main objection was, which was to stop the forced acceptance of Catholicism that was enforced by persecution and large numbers of executions (the inquisitions).
.
We remember with honor (not worship), the Protestant reformation leaders because they broke 1,500 years of Roman rule over most of Europe, politically (the papacy) and religiously (Roman Catholicism). While even today we honor the rights of Catholics to practice, we as Protestants still preach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and the proper precepts and admonitions of the Epistles, the book of Acts and the book of Revelation. While I am anointed by the Holy Spirit to teach God’s Word and to relate views in history and carefully selected stories that are well-confirmed in addition to specific scriptural studies, I am NOT a prophet. Teachers can be false too but I would highly suggest that one actually listen/read those things I share, that seem unusual (from lack of ministers relating them from the pulpit) before you conclude something to be a heresy.
.
Also carefully compare them to God’s Word instead of lazily saying False! False! False! God says in Psalm 105:15 “…Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” Even kings who went against God’s ministers, suffered famine as a result. Using God’s Word against true ministers of God (though imperfect men) is an especially dangerous practice. It is different when a fellow Christian can show false teaching being taught by someone, precept by precept instead of lazily and disrespectfully saying “I think that guy is a false prophet or teacher.” If you do so by superficial judgement, you will be the one who becomes false, in addition to being a busybody and a gossiper. With this I end my words in this article, as a 54 year old man (year-2017), called by God to teach when I was in my teens. While I found necessity in writing this article on fellow-Christians perception of this particular subject as being false, my next article will be more generally on false teaching versus sincere Christians being in error. Destroying or injuring a Christian because you are a little too lax in learning to distinguish between them is irresponsibility. Look for my second article on this subject matter.

 

Lengthy but Unnecessary Dissertations by Fearful Atheists

Often you find Atheists posting articles online about how misinformed believers in God were in Old Testament times and how misinformed New Testament Christians are. They point out things such as Christians or Old Testament believers in God, mistakenly believing that the world was flat. As a Christian believer in God I will even add to this argument by saying that believers from both time periods believed in many things that were not correct. However, the Holy Bible says in many scriptures that God did not always give explanations but His Word is rather “revelation knowledge”. Why did God allow his people to lack understanding in so many things? Could it be that He desired for man to seek answers; not only the extremely important spiritual ones but also those that he could learn increasingly through scientific and common sense methods?
.
The Holy Scriptures are an account of God’s ongoing dealings with man’s sin-nature; a term that is of course ridiculed by Atheists, even in the face of a horrible increase of bad attitudes across the board in the world. You can add adulteries that lead to murders, theft of other’s properties that in many cases sends men to prison. You additionally have the even farther-reaching results of sin, to include war, child molestation, rape of young women – on up to the elderly. However, Atheists often result in saying the pointing-out of these things is a “stick man argument”; a phrase they use to ad nauseam.
.
This pointing out of how ignorant mankind was/is, includes fields of science that it was literally impossible for man to understand in the earliest and earlier years of mankind’s domain/dispensation (yes Biblical terms Christians believe in). Can you imagine people 5,000 years ago saying to one another “Let’s build a very large telescope, so we can really know what’s going on in the universe.”? Daniel stated in his Old Testament book: “But you, Daniel, keep these words secret, and seal the book until the end times. Many will travel everywhere, and knowledge will grow.” (Daniel 12:4 GWT). Would this not reveal that God had a timing for scientific knowledge to grow increasingly with passing generations? Christians have a very difficult time seeing all things working in unison because a force of evolution is moving it forward. This implies reasoning and planning behind evolution, by those who don’t even realize they are saying this with every argument they attack belief in God with. You can do it in a calm voice and a convincing tone but this still does not make any of these arguments true against belief in God.

What is the “fearful” aspect I added in my title of this article, toward Atheists? What it is meant to point out is that they have a gnawing, a deep down fear that tells them it is wrong to try converting others to Atheism (very much a religion) because they don’t want to be alone if they find that God really will be judging them. Here’s another spot where Atheists will use the “stick man argument” term and say; “This is the technique of Christianity, to scare and frighten people, including little precious children, into becoming Christians.” Let me just add this statement, to that counter-argument: How real is child rape and war that kills many 1,000s of innocent people in their homelands or how about bombs that can wipe out millions of people with the simple entry of codes and button pushing? “Well”, an Atheist might say, this is simply “unacceptable social behavior – a flaw in evolutionary progression”. Why then is it all tied-into what can logically be called “evil” (yes, a term evolutionists say is philosophical and improvable in a scientific testing or lab setting).
.
How can evil possibly be denied or how can good be possibly denied (e.g. supporting the poor, helping orphans, handicapped/disabled and widowed people)? As far as age of earth and universe findings go that Atheists believe prove ‘theories of evolution’ (stated in plural because evolution is not one theory but a variety of them and many are in conflict), many Christians believe God has used the earth for other purposes that may go back eons of ages. The belief goes back to Targums (early Old Testament concordances/paraphrases). Do Christians even now know a great deal past “Jesus Christ and Him crucified to redeem men from the sin-nature John 3:16)? No. I’ll end with a verse from the Holy Bible that sums up this point: “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” (1 Corinthians 13:12 – KJV).
