Deny God

30 April 2014, 13:01

The early followers of Jesus Christ were known as disciples of Christ. Today they go by the description of Christians. These early followers were brutally murdered in the most horrific ways that men those days could dream up.

Men, woman, children and the elderly were murdered indiscriminately. Information regarding this is abounding on the internet. What is interesting is that despite these horrendous acts this religion just grew and expanded. Some scholar’s actually believe that it was these very acts of torture that helped this religion grow even faster.

Now what could possibly move a people to suffer such brutal treatment, and yet still believe in a loving and merciful God that allows His followers to die in such horror? What mind set must you have to hold on to this belief and yet you watch in utter horror as your loved ones are brutally slain before your very eyes?

This is the mind renewed by Christ that is more than able to do this. It is written in Psalms “Al day long we are slaughtered like sheep for Your names sake.” This is the fortitude of the mind renewed by Christ.

Followers of Christ understand that the current life we are living is but temporary. Our inheritance is not of this world but is glorious and everlasting. This the believer knows is fact by the inward working of the Holy Spirit that is not present in all people. The truth of this is undeniable and unshakable to them that have seen and felt the Messiah's presence in their lives.

 This is why the non-believer cannot possibly understand why a Christian would hold on to a belief that they deem as scientifically redundant. Science will never prove or disprove the existence of the christian God. He is above all and yet to His followers, not shrouded in mystery at all!

How much does science really know?                                             

-          Less than 5% of the world’s oceans.

-          Less than 35% of the world’s species have been noted and catalogued.

-          More about the moon’s surface that about earth’s surface.

I know for a fact when my time is finished here I am moving on to greater things because of the Carpenter from Nazareth that changed everything.

I will sum up with the following quote from Dorothy Sayers that I have changed the order of:

“The sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die.”

Maranatha!
