What? Herman Cain Says God Told Him To Run For President?

Official White House Portret of James A. Garfi...

Herman Cain who is running as fast as he can for president of the United States said that GOD told him to run for president…..Pat Robertson said the same thing “God told me…” but God doesn’t send people on wild goose chases. Robertson lost.

If a man is a minister he is to be preaching the gospel not running for president or having a beer with Herod or Caesar. If God called you to preach you need to preach, not try to run the world without God on your side. God is in the soul saving business, not electing public officials to high office while the world goes to hell.

The Republican candidate told CBN News that’s why he believes “God’s been in this from the beginning.” Cain said that when he felt God calling him to run for president, he resisted just as Moses did after being called by God to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt. Like Moses, Cain says he told God, “You’ve got the wrong person. You can’t be talking about me.” Cain told CBN News that it took a lot of those “conversations with God” to overcome his reluctance to seek the presidency.

Notice Cain said he FELT? Nowhere in the Bible are we to go by feelings when determining anything is real or not real. We walk by faith and faith without works is dead. Then Cain comparing himself to the great lawgiver Moses is incredibly absurd. Cain’s faith is in politics not in God. That faith is dead on arrival anywhere he sends it.

President James Garfield also was a minister, then abandoned it for politics, then was elected president of the United States. As we know he was shot after only six months in office and died soon after. Nothing more can be said of what God thought about he leaving the ministry for politics.

He took the man’s life. God is not in politics regardless of what some say. Read the Bible and see there the only politicians were the wicked, not the righteous.

If one is following Jesus his only goal is to win the lost to Christ.

Garfield was only POTUS for six months then died by an assassin. 

About Garfield….”While at Eclectic, he was most interested in the study of Greek and Latin,[12] and he was also engaged to teach. He developed a regular preaching circuit at neighboring churches, in some cases earning a gold dollar per service.[13] Garfield then enrolled at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, where he joined the Delta Upsilon fraternity[14] and graduated in 1856 as an outstanding student.[15]Garfield was quite impressed with the college President, Mark Hopkins, about whom he said, “The ideal college is Mark Hopkins on one end of a log with a student on the other.”[16] Garfield earned a reputation as a skilled debater and was made President of the Philogian Society and Editor of theWilliams Quarterly.[17]

After preaching briefly at Franklin Circle Christian Church (1857–58), Garfield gave up on that vocation and applied for a job as principal of a high school…”

Information taken from Wikipedia.

Men who claim that God tells them to run for president are sadly ignorant of the Bible. God doesn’t call ministers to Caesar’s palace for $1000  a plate fund-raising dinners. He has no part in lobbyists whose interests do not include the lost and dying, the hurting and sick and those desperately in need of healing and salvation.

God calls us to win the lost to Christ. Cain is delusional as was Robertson who said GOD told him to go run for president. Robertson lost and who can believe God told him such a thing? God call us to win not lose. God give victory never defeat. And there is no victory in defeat.

Herman Cain said Monday he didn’t want to run for president, but God called him to join the race.

The Republican candidate told CBN News that’s why he believes “God’s been in this from the beginning.”

Cain said that when he felt God calling him to run for president, he resisted just as Moses did after being called by God to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt.

Like Moses, Cain says he told God, “You’ve got the wrong person. You can’t be talking about me.”

Cain is delusional. He feels stuff then acts on his feelings. Then blames God for his feelings. Feelings change like the weather. We must have the sure prophecy of God’s word and God’s word is not a feeling. It is Christ.

Cain comparing himself with Moses is ludicrous. He is not Moses. America is not Israel. And Americans are not slaves in Egypt land. God did not call Cain to lead anyone anywhere this is for certain. And we have the entire Bible to prove this.

Cain told CBN News that it took a lot of those “conversations with God” to overcome his reluctance to seek the presidency.

Conversational with God? God only talks salvation from sin and healing and deliverance from sin. Sin is what God wants to remove from the world (not just from America)  not republicans or democrats from office.. But Cain is delusional in that he thinks God is calling him to some great mission as he called Moses. Moses already gave the law. It is a done deal!

Nowhere in the Bible does God tell anyone to run for public office. Jesus did not dine with Tiberius. He called Herod a fox, not his running mate.

Jesus did not run for public office. Jesus did not vote in elections. Jesus did not do anything that did not relate to the redemption of the lost. He healed the sick. He did not take away their benefits. None of the apostles were into politics. They preached and they prayed and they fasted to do one thing: WIN THE LOST!

As long as these religious politicians can push their delusions that God is walking with the rich and vain and lost in sin Caesars, and not with the hated persecuted Christians, they are winning victories for the devil not God..

It is wrong to pass the lie that God is involved in politics. God wants us saved NOT elected. And he wants us to get others saved not elected. The world needs Jesus and he seeks those who want to work in his kingdom, not work for the banks.

This blog to be continued on the case of Karla Faye Tucker, the young woman executed by the state of Texas for murder…. and how church and state are obviously separate.

The Debaters (1)

Chinese human rights activist Liu Xiaobo award...

Ladies and gentlemen thank you all for coming tonight. Our speakers will debate whether science and the Bible have anything in common.

Our first speaker Dr Fuller O. Hotairre was educated in London, England at the prestigious university of higher learning Weighbridge. His knowledge knows no limit. His understanding defies human understanding. His wisdom defies the wise and learned..also

he attended the school of Socrates in Alexandria earning several degrees; where he later became  the highly respected Dean of students. He alone discovered that Greek philosophy when mixed with the teachings of Carl Jung with a pinch of Freud can raise one’s knowledge to  heights of ecstasy.

He has studied extensively and his knowledge is unsurpassed by any of his peers. Or by anyone for that matter.

He also served as the president of the college of Incredible Intelligence in Rome. While there in Rome the pope kissed his ring.

After that he earned degrees in every ology known to man. He presently is the respected president of the University of Learning So High that degrees from there can only be attained by a few whose IQ’s must be at least 198. He is fluent in seven languages. He has written over forty books which all have been best sellers.

He has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to educate the ignorant religious Bible thumping fundies. He works tirelessly to somehow convince them that they have been duped. He enjoys golf and traveling to places never before visited by humans. And he is only thirty-five years old. He calls himself an agtheist which is agnostic but technically a borderline atheist.

His Brilliance Dr Hotairre will now speak.

Dr Hotairre: Good evening ladies and gentlemen. My first presentation will be on unanswered prayer. God does not exist because I have never seen him. And my esteemed audience if I the magnificently educated Dr Hotiarre have not seen God, then he does not exist. I have never heard him with my perfectly healthy ears. I have never touched him. He simply is not here. He is not there. Ladies and gentlemen he is nowhere and not anywhere. He seems to be quite invisible as well as silent. He reigns from glory they say. But where is this glory? He wants praise from his prisoners. But why? Why praise him for an imperfect world? Could he with all his great awesome power have created a world without hurricanes and floods and tornadoes? yes. But he did not. Why? Because he did not want to is the simple answer…if he exists..which I am sure he does not exist. As the late great Alfred North Whitehead inquired why would any God want to be praised forever as does the Old Testament Yahweh?

But the greatest most convincing reason I am sure he does not exist is because he never answered one single prayer I prayed when I did believe in him. I read the Bible through and found nothing but contradictions. Oh yes my listeners I read it through.

I am disappointed it did not contain more information to solve our dilemma. What with all the blood, and smoking mountains, seas that mysteriously part, axes that mysteriously float, gore, wars, and incest, jealousy, idolatry, destroyed temples, wanderings, rapes, circumcisions, garden snakes,  misguided Egyptians, pathetic Persians, rowdy Romans, screaming pagans, confused Greeks, arrogant Assyrians, adultery, and murders, along with all the so called miracles it is a wonder these stories were preserved and handed down to the next generation of ignorant peasants who did not know their right hand from the left.

That is why I turned to science which has all the answers I need. But let us just take a little peek at the scriptures: For example who numbered Israel the Lord or Satan? It is maddening! There is no scientific reason that an axe would float. The Sea of Reeds has been searched thoroughly and not one chariot wheel has been found. Where are the stones Moses said the Ten Commandments were written on by the finger of God? There is not one shred of evidence that the Israelites wandered forty years in the wilderness. Where is the evidence for it?

It is absurd to believe that Elijah left here in a chariot. Science cannot support that the sun stood still at Joshua’s command.  It is not scientifically possible to produce the result Jacob did when he did his sheep experiment. I could go on and on naming one impossibility after another.

The notion that David killed a lion and a bear with his bare hands is absurd. Samson did not kill thousands of Philistines with the jawbone of an axe simply because there was no Sampson. What man needs is education. The world is in the condition it is in because of ignorance. It is a battle between those who have an education and those who need an education.

Thank you Dr Hotairre. We will now hear from Brother Happy.

Brother Happy: Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and thank you Jesus!

Glory to God! Praise the Lord for saving a wretch like me! I was lost and now am found. I was blind but now I see! I was full of hate and Jesus exchanged it for love! I was a sinner bound for hell. I am now saved and on my way to heaven.

The Bible is the Word of God

MOSES BREAKS THE TABLES OF THE LAW.—Exodus xxx...

Image via Wikipedia

There are some out there who claim the Bible is not the word of God.

The Bible IS the written word of God.

When God said Let there be light, it isn’t difficult to understand that what God said IS his Word. What I say is my word, what you say is your word..So it follows that when Moses wrote down what God SAID; he wrote down God’s WORD so the Bible is the word of God.

The Bible doesn’t say at the beginning This is the word of God…but it does say at the beginning on its first page In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth. It says the earth was without form and void. That darkness was upon the face of the deep. Then it goes on that the spirit of God moved upon the face of the deep. Then it continues with And God said Let there be light. And there was light. And God saw that the light was good.

The Bible doesn’t tell us many things but the concept is there.

I like what Tim Lahaye said once..”There are only two lines of thought which permeate all literature: God’s thoughts and man’s thoughts.”
Everything said by the human race can only be good or bad.

And the Book that tells us the story of Jesus is the word of God.

Joyce Meyer Said What God Did Not Say

Year 2~Day 59 +030/366: Gift from Secret Pal

 17And it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

 18And the LORD said unto David my father, Whereas it was in thine heart to build an house unto my name, thou didst well that it was in thine heart. ( 1 Kings 8:17-18)

God did not allow David to build him a house.  His son Solomon did. Because David was a man of war and blood was on his hands. But David intended to do it. And for that good intention God told him he did well because it was in his heart. He wanted to even though he did not get to.

Joyce Meyer said one day these exact words; “God said to me, “Joyce good intentions is not obedience.” (I don’t listen to Joyce Meyer but I happened to be channel surfing past her one day when I heard her say this.) Immediately it came to my remembrance what God told Solomon about David wanting to build him a house..

When we intend to do something for God God says we do well. So is intending to do well obedience to God? Yes. It is never disobedience which is what Joyce Meyer said God told her it was. Anything that is well or good is never in disobedience to God. Even a good intention is pleasing to God. There is no gray area with God. Either it is sin or it is not sin. Good intentions is not sin.

IE:A man could intend to love and provide for his family, then illness lays him up, but still his intention to work hard and provide for his family is accepted by God as a good thing. Even though he was unable to fulfill his intentions to do good. God would never tell a father who intended to provide for his family then his wife suddenly dies that he failed to be obedient.

Joyce Meyer should have cited these verses from the Bible saying that if we have good intentions we do well. If we intend to do something and do not carry through our intentions seen by God it  is still doing well. But not carrying through with our good intentions could be caused by many reasons. She was not clear in her so called teaching.

She presented God as thoughtless and inconsiderate. God appreciates anything we do for him even if it is just a good intention.

Teaching the Bible In Schools (revised)

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:15)

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou rises (Deuteronomy 6:7)

From a child Timothy knew the holy scriptures. Which we know was the Hebrew Bible since the New Testament had not been written yet. Who taught Timothy? Not a pagan public school teacher. In first century Israel the Hebrew boys attended school to the age of thirteen to study the Torah. This was a law then that they had to attend school to learn the Torah. God never left it up to pagan school teachers to teach his word to anyone.  The parents and religious teachers of the law did it. Not heathen pagans who had no regard for God. He commanded the parents to diligently teach their children about him. The Deuteronomy passage is clear that the we are to teach our children the word of God not expect pagan heathen  schools to do it.

The schools today teach evolution this is their thing to do. An entire generation has already been taught there is no God: the very generation that teaches now there is no God. That we evolved added to that. Now this crazy idea that is being promoted by the religious right; people like Chuck Norris and David Barton to teach the Bible in schools is really saying to place the Bible alongside Darwin, Shakespeare, Homer,  and the Greek philosophers, etc. for literature.

But the Bible is the word of God. It is not to be read as any book which is what the schools will do with it. Why would an atheist teacher teach the Bible as the word of God? It will be taught as the Bible as literature. It is not just literature it is the written word of God.

The commandment in Deuteronomy 6 uses the adverb diligently when commanding us how to teach the word of God to our children. It must be taught diligently. Not as the Bible as literature.

But maybe it is easier to leave it to the schools rather than teach our children what Thus says the Lord. This is how church and state unite which was never the teaching of God. Jesus also never taught that the state is to teach the word of God to anyone.  Sadly I have browsed books in bookstores and have seen books containing parts of the Bible. It is exactly what God commanded the human race not to do; to add or take away from his word.

Should the Bible be used as a textbook in schools? It seems it would then be considered just any other book to read or study.  Give it a few years in the hands of a generation of kids who think the Bible is an outdated book written centuries ago by ignorant goat herders.

It would be seen as required reading perhaps? Just another book with a rumor attached to it perhaps. The rumor being that once it was considered to be the word of God.

I can see it now the student carrying it their backpack a revised revised revised copy of the Bible along with Catcher in the Rye. I can see it now the student sitting on the college campus grass with the Bible lying on the ground along with books of fiction. I can see it now the money-man coming to college to buy back reusable textbooks and he buys the Bible for a few dollars. I can see it now the Bible tossed in the trash bin along with other old worn out books. I can see it now on a library shelf under fiction.

It is easy to push this idea to the public with commercials such as where Chuck Norris and his wife stand together and promote this idea.

The Bible is to be taught at home and in the churches. If the children were taught it at home by their parents, the idea to  teach it at school would probably have never been introduced. We parents are to teach it to our children. Nowhere does it say the school teacher is to do this.

There was a time and it still happens in places where sinners were saved from their sins. Now it is the right so out there with their propaganda that those who know nothing of the Bible think that God is all about government when he is nothing of the sort.

As Mary at Jesus’ tomb said, when Jesus whom she thought was the gardener asked her why she was weeping, “They have taken away my Lord and I do not know where they have laid him.”

The Religious Right (of which I do not adhere to) accuse the Left (of which I do not adhere to) that it is the other group who have no regard for God. But isn’t it really they who have no regard for God who want to take the Bible out of the home and church and put it in government?

People need to be saved. Jesus died to save the lost sinner. But the sinner is not seen as a sinner anymore but as a voter. Vote for those on the right and you will be saved and get to heaven. Don’t vote for the Religious Right and go to hell.

The church has nothing to do with the state. How could the religious right not see the damage they are doing? Because it is easier to cast a vote than spend time in prayer for the lost sinners of the world.

God said his word will not return to him void. Whoever reads it, though they realize it or not, will be eating the bread of life.

God is the Keeper and Preserver of his Word and what he allows to be done in this situation will somehow bring him glory.

Atheist (8)

Hi again Atheist and thanks for coming tonight. As I mentioned to you in our emails last night you will be questioned about the mind. Where did it come from? How did it evolve. Of course you know that I do not agree with one thing you have said about anything else you’ve offered here. I do not believe the universe or earth is billions of years old. I am sure it is only a few thousands years old because of documented evidence.  I certainly don’t believe humans evolved from different beasts over billions of time because of time’s magical powers. Before Genesis one, anything said what happened then, is hearsay. Anyway I respect your right to believe whatever you believe. I am sure God created man in his image and he called him Adam. Let us begin…

CS-Theist: How does evolution account for the mind?

Atheist: It simply evolved along with everything else. We believe that emotions and thoughts are just the result of the big emotional and mental bang. You see when the big bang happened, an incredible amount of energy was released from the center of it. The ability to think was among the treasure distributed to wherever it happened to explode . You know the time-god is not compassionate its purpose if you could call it purpose is simply whatever.

CS-Theist: You misunderstand the question or I did not make myself clear. I refer to the hairy smelly beasts you insist were our ancestors. Did they have a mind?

Atheist: Yes they did but it was limited to grunting. They had no idea to move their tongue to form words since there were no words to form. They  simply grunted. Try grunting and notice it requires no movement of the tongue.

CS-Theist: Brilliant observation on the part of evolutionists that no words existed to be formed. Well..why didn’t the creatures make some up? Anything even if it was just Let’s go hunting?

Atheist: Their mind was there but it was completely blank. They lived by instinct. As I said earlier most of their time was used looking for food. But since as you said earlier they probably committed cannibalism, they probably did resort to eating each other when no food was available.

CS-Theist: By the way what food was available besides they eating each other? And don’t forget to explain how the mind formed.

Athirst:  They ate grass and leaves, fruit and if they were able to outrun them, they caught raccoons and porcupines and ate those too. I’m sure they ran after foxes and coyotes and wolves to eat them. When they weren’t doing that they were multiplying and having baby beasts….all the while their minds were evolving. Why the earth turns on its axis in perfect tune from the get-go and humans took billions of years to evolve I have not a clue.

Cs-Theist: Porcupines? Uh..okay. I can see the quills sticking out of their face now. Truly the world you describe is horrible beyond belief. There must have been blood all over the place with the smell of decaying flesh and the stench of death. And to think this went on for billions of years is gruesome and sick to say the least. These beasts you describe did they possess any tenderness? Or is it as I suspect they were capable of nothing but murder and cannibalism? Sounds to me these disgusting creatures were deserving of death by any method. I  recall Yahweh commanding the Israelites to utterly destroy the Canaanites. These disgusting people were engaging in sexual perversions to have babies to offer them to demons. Archaeologists have found all the proof of this. Baby after baby after baby dead while they worshiped demons. And this was about six thousand years ago. We have authentic documentation for this. The earth turns on its axis without a flaw because the same God who set that going is the same God who made man in his image in Eden just a few thousand years ago.

Atheist: Well imagine what happened billions of years ago. I know evolution has no documentation to prove these hairy creatures existed but they had to have existed when you go backward into time considering the progress of man has been gradual and slow. We keep improving so it follows that there was a time we were brute beasts.

CS-Theist: I would not call a few thousand years slow progress. Just a short time ago we discovered many things such as electricity. America is only a few hundred years old and look how far we have come. What concerns me is the dead bloody smelly bodies of numberless creatures who supposedly lived. Would there not be some clue they were here? Anything? There is nothing.

Atheist: Well look at the Hebrews. Is there any clue they were here? They left behind no buildings, no works of art, no nothing. How do we know that Abraham Isaac and Jacob were real people? Egypt left the pyramids. Greece left us their knowledge and other nations have left many artifacts that proves they existed.

CS-Theist: Hello? We have the Bible and Jesus the Christ. We have over 5000 manuscripts of the Greek New Testament. We have the Dead Sea Scrolls. Israel is with us today and they live in their homeland since 1948. And even if a million mistakes are found in the copies of the New Testament we know that Jesus was the Word made flesh. And he said that all the Law and the prophets hang on this: Love your neighbor as yourself.

Atheist: Hearsay is all it is. In contrast; what evolution has discovered thanks to the great naturalist Darwin we now know that the Bible is a myth.

CS-Theist: The myth? the original myth has nothing to do with the Bible. The myth is the what originated with the ancients who worshiped the sun and moon, the rain and the stars. This was before God called the idolater Abram out of Ur of the Chaldees. When the rain watered these ancient people’s crops and made them grow, they worshiped the rain which they saw as one of the good gods. If the rains destroyed their crops they then believed the rains had become angry or evil, so to appease the rain they offered up gifts on altars. You know that is why so many ziggurats are found all over the world. They built them to offer sacrifices to the god that they saw as friendly. If the sun warmed them they worshiped it. But if it burned their skin they  thought it was angry so they offered up sacrifices to appease it. They worshiped anything they saw as greater than they were. If something seemed to have power over them they saw it as a god. It is still happening today as in when some people worship celebrities or money or anything they see as greater or better or richer than they are. Not all people do this only those who see them as gods.

Atheist: But back to the mind; when the hairy smelly beasts were hungry or wanted to multiply by mating with female beasts, which was all the time they did not think. They moved according to their feelings. They took what they wanted with not a thought of anything. They did not think, their brains were not developed to think, they only felt, and did whatever it took to satisfy their animal beastly lust for self-gratification.

CS-Theist: On that we agree that the mind is separate from feelings. Instinct is not the thinking mind. Living by instinct is animalistic. It is not of God. God told us to think, and he told us how to think, and what to think. Because he knows our feelings will get us into trouble. So he gave us the law of Moses to guide our minds to think only those things that will make us happy. The Law of Moses guides us to do things that are in order with God so we will worship no God but Yahweh. This is why God told us what to do and what not to do. All you have said merely confirms that humans are by nature beastly. But God calls it sin and sin is the transgression of his law. The Bible is civilized while the story of evolution is laden with sorrow and pain and unheard of amounts of blood and disgusting entities who had no goal in life, nothing but their teeth and lust to shed more blood.

Atheist: The mind slowly evolved over billions of years. Before that it was part of the big scheme of things. It was as I said part of the big bang. Then it began to localize into individual brains.

CS-Theist: So you say it localized into individual brains? What came first the brain or the skull? What looked for the other? Did the skull look for a brain or did the brain look for a skull to reside in? Sound pretty far-fetched to me.

Atheist: The brain found the skull after billions of years of time had passed. The brain could not think yet it had to go through time. Time had to pass before anything could evolve.

CS-Theist: This is your answer then; that the brain evolved without a mind than after billions of years, the mind found the skull and got in it than it began to think? So it was wandering around in space looking for a home?

Atheist: Yes you could say that. It was part of the big bang explosion than after time had passed it finally found its place in the universe which was inside a skull and brain.

CS-Theist: And what determined which skull it landed in?

Atheist: Again it was sheer chance. If so and so got a smart mind it was the luck of the draw of the universe. If the mind was not so smart it was simply how it went. The strongest survive.

CS-Theist: So the strongest mind survived and was able to choose what skull it entered? Why did not this happen for the hairy beasts? Why were they excluded from this great scientific expedition into the unknown?

Atheist: They were not considered fully human yet. They were merely experiments that time used and discarded on its way to here to almost perfect humans. Remember there must always be sacrifice for victory. The beasts were  sacrificed so we could be here. We owe them alot.

CS-Theist: Yes the time-god is evil. Evolution’s time-god and I borrow from a famous atheist Richard Dawkins these adjectives he used in this order… is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; petty, unjust, unforgiving, control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty, ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. As for sacrifice I am so glad Jesus sacrificed himself to give us victory.

Pilate’s Question; What is Truth?

Christ before Pilate, Mihály Munkácsy, 1881

Image via Wikipedia

Pilate the governor of Judea was looking at Truth personified  when he looked at Jesus of Nazareth and asked the question What is truth?

Pilate did not recognize truth. He is like the rest of his fellow humans that do not, cannot, will not see truth for what it is.  When it does not comply with their thoughts and feelings it cannot be truth. Jesus said that he himself was the TRUTH.

Many people see themselves as truth not anything else. What is truth? Truth is what GOD SAID. It is that simple. But how do we know what God said? The Torah is the law of God.

God isn’t ever going to say that green is red. But if he did, than green would be red. It is what  GOD SAID that determines everything to be what it is.

Could one conclude just by speculation, or even deep thought that any feeling, or experience is real or good? Or is it evil or is it a delusion? Perhaps it is a hallucination? What? How do we determine what is from God when there is so much delusion in the world?

Firstly, Satan is the master of delusion and deception. He is the being of iniquity and darkness, the wicked evil savage of hate and murder.  He walks  in lies. He operates in delusion, in deceit and incredible dark light.  As Jesus said there can be light that is darkness.

If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness! (Matthew 6:23)

When two masters are served (good and evil both) the evil master will prevail because the good Master Jesus will not compromise with  evil. Your light will be turned into darkness. How great is that darkness?  So great you think it is light. That is dark!

This is deception; this is what the enemy does as he works his evil in the hearts of those who refuse to simply believe God. When Jesus said to believe him he didn’t mean you need a degree in theology. He didn’t mean you need to pray until there are lumps on your knees. He didn’t say you have to graduate at the top of your class.  Just go with what he said.

He did not come to threaten or judge he came to reveal laws that are in place. Universal laws his Father set into motion. That if you transgress those laws you will perish. Why? Because they are immutable laws.

Laws such as the law of gravity, the laws of thermodynamics, the laws of marriage, and of faith, of sin, or love….laws laws laws…all set into motion by the great Creator.

Satan is the master magician who can actually present in full color before you an illusion by presenting to you evil disguised as goodness.  He comes as an angel of light to deceive those who refuse the light. Jesus said men loved darkness rather than light, that they would not come to the light lest their deeds be reproved.

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. (John 3:19)

Condemnation is not anything to play around with.

But fear of shame and reproach keeps many a sinner from the altar of repentance. When that is why the altar is there; to receive the sinner.

Murderers and adulterers and homosexuals all feel what they are doing.

Karla Faye Tucker the woman who axed two people to death in Texas and died by lethal injection for it, said she had orgasms while she slashed her victims to death with an axe. She felt what she was doing as pleasure though what she was doing was evil. Satan the master deceiver was at work to destroy her and her victims.

This is undeniable evidence that evil brings pleasure even as the Bible says. The Bible says there is pleasure in sin for a season.

“…..to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; (Hebrews 11:25)

Homosexuals say it feels right so they think their perversion is right.  They say they need to get “married” because of their rights and feelings.

On and on the claims go. Ted Bundy was driven to kill; he could not stop himself so he stalked and killed with nary a tear of remorse. He lived by his feelings. Homes torn to pieces by adulterers and fornicators all because they live by their feelings instead of by laws. Feelings feelings and more feelings. The world is almost destroyed because of humans being guided by their feelings instead of by what GOD SAID.

The man who had sex with a stallion in Washington state than died after the stallion perforated the man’s inner organs.  He bled to death. Why? Because the man lived by his feelings. He thought to have sex with a horse and paid for it with his life.

If he had obeyed God’s law that said not to lie with beasts he would not have died that way. Yet God gets the blame for so much from so many.

Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it [is] confusion. (Leviticus 18:23)

Consider….

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  (Genesis 1:1)

Than what happened? Nothing happened. The Bible says next that the spirit of God moved upon the face of the deep.  (Genesis 1:1) What happened then? Nothing happened. Simply because nothing just happens there has to be a reason a cause for it. What a horrible world this would be if things just happened for no reason or cause. Scary.

Like a family going on a picnic on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. They know it might rain if that weatherman got it wrong. They know they will see different strangers at the park. They know what might take place, but they know this ; They know that no beast will suddenly arise from the ground and eat them up. This is delusion it is imagination something the Bible says not to do.

There are laws and there is delusion. People who took LSD hallucinated and saw colors and other weird  stuff. It was all delusion one of Satan’s most useful tools.

I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love. (Psalm 119:113)

Then it says in Genesis something that brought light.

And God said Let there be light and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

Those words……GOD SAID. And there it is the reason for it all the reason for good and the reason for evil…the cause of both in the universe it is all because GOD SAID. If anything agrees with what GOD SAID all will be well with that one. If one resists what GOD SAID than he will die.

LAWS. Everything that proceeds from the mouth of God is LAW. Not idle chatter, not suggestions awaiting our approval. Not maybes, or could be. Not conjectures or guesses.

If we only understand it is what GOD SAID that determines what is right what is wrong.

This is why we have the Torah it tells us  GOD SAID what is right and what is wrong.
Nothing else exists that contains its enduring truths.

Many will argue that there were before the Torah laws and rules.  I think not. That the Old Testament is not original but way before it there were laws teaching right from wrong. That is also the extent of their opposition to merely say the Torah is not original. Let them try then to prove it with documented evidence.

Don’t bring the Babylonian Code that is not sufficient to guide the world as history has proved. Don’t bring Buddha who came along 700 years before Jesus was born.

The Torah is what GOD SAID. It will remain what GOD SAID forever.

What GOD SAID is TRUTH. His laws are TRUTH.

And Jesus was the personification of those laws; what GOD SAID

Next..why obeying the Ten Commandments is right and will bring peace order and happiness.
