Atheist (9)

Theist: I can’t believe you were nice enough to continue our discourse on God. Would you like a cup of coffee or tea?

Atheist: Thanks I don’t mind if I have a coffee.  My premise is there is no God. No God only reality.

Theist: Paul the apostle says you suppress the truth in unrighteousness. Makes sense to me. He is saying that the truth is there but you push it down so far you cannot see it anymore.

Atheist: I don’t care what Paul said. I see no evidence for God and I do not suppress the truth in unrighteousness. There is no such thing as unrighteousness. I admit there is right and wrong but to call wrong unrighteousness is absurd. It is amazing that anyone could believe the Bible to be what God said to the world. It seems he could have picked more intelligent people to get his word here. Have you ever examined their style of writing? And it came to pass than they repeat the same thing over for no reason.

Theist: Well it has been a long journey hasn’t it from wild hairy grunting killing smelly beast to what you are now a living man who thinks civilly. Am I right? Also how does it feel to know your ancestors were beastly cannibals and sexual perverts?

Atheist: So were yours. But to answer your question I see it as simply the way it is. Man was once a beast. Where have you been hiding? The evidence is there that we evolved.

Theist: God calls them sinners. Pagans heathens and idolaters. He does also say that some are to be taken as brute beasts and destroyed. Not all are destined to go to heaven.

Atheist: See you said it yourself that there are some who are destined for salvation and some are destined to burn in hell. How unfair is that? What kind of God makes people only to destroy them? Why wasn’t he able to make a perfect race where none had to be destroyed?

Theist: Ah…we are back to you are wiser and kinder than God argument. Since you claim to be so smart explain why there is darkness?

Atheist: It just happened for no apparent reason. It was part of the big bang.

Theist: I understand you see it that way. But what is darkness? What is dark matter? Why does darkness exist? The mind is the only place where we get answers you say? Than think of an answer and tell me why there is darkness?

Atheist: It is the opposite of light.

Theist: Wrong answer. It is not the opposite of light. Nothing is the opposite of God and he is light. The sun is an artificial light so to speak, since he is the true Light. God is one and he is self-existent. Nothing he created can be in opposition to him and he created all things including darkness. In the beginning he saw that all he made was good not goo. It was man that sinned in opposition to what he commanded them. But I refer to literal darkness. Have you ever traveled down a long dark highway at night from one town to the next than for one instant switch off your car headlights?

Atheist: As a matter of fact I did do that once when driving from California to Arizona. It was pitch dark. No light no moon could be seen. It was blackness.

Theist: What is that?

Atheist: It is darkness?

Theist: Yes we know that, but what is it?  What is it made of? Does it have properties? If God turned off the sun moon and stars there would be nothing but blackness. In other words by nature everything is black and dark. There is no light. None. Now say all the electric power went out on earth also. There were no candles no flashlights and no matches. What would that be?

Atheist: Well hello? It would be gross darkness nothing but pure blackness.

Theist: Why blackness? Why not whiteness or pinkness or blueness?

Atheist: I don’t understand the question. I am sure it would be blackness.

Theist: But why black and not white or green? Say it remained that way for a year, would the human race survive it?

Atheist: I think this could only be answered if it was actually experienced. It would be black because that is what darkness is; blackness.

Theist: I read once of an experiment scientists did; they placed a man in a pitch black room for a week. After a week they placed a small candle in there. The man reported that he was depressed and sad. He said he was lonely and that even fear tried to attack his mind with scary imagination. But when he saw the candle he felt better. The light and warmth of the candle somehow revived him. Why do you think this was that the candle helped him?

Atheist: For obvious reasons; he could not adapt to the darkness. So there is no way the human race could exist one year in pitch darkness.

Theist: But you insist that man is able to adapt? Please explain why he can adapt to one thing and not another.

Atheist: it just happened that way. Evolution just happened it did not come with a book.

Theist: Good news the human race was given a Book by God.

Atheist: If man had to live in pitch darkness he could not survive. It would kill him. We need light! We need warmth. Evolution made us that way.

Theist: Oh? And why then did evolution evolve darkness? Why would it big bang something that is detrimental to our survival? Why did evolution evolve what is bad for us if it is indeed bad for us? I say man can endure if God is with him. Because God is light and warmth and love. The very things we desperately need to live. But your magic time machine never got rid of the darkness even after billions of years. How mean is that?

Atheist: I said we evolved into humans not into super beings. There are limitations. Darkness is not always bad for us. We sleep in it and as we sleep our body and mind for some reason renews itself. We become unconscious and we rest.

Theist: Please explain how we evolve improving as we go but die anyway?  How is that improvement. Did you know that depression is darkness? It is totally negative. How did evolution not rid the world of depression and disease? Why did it not correct all these problems since it had billions of years to do it. That is a lot of time and still evolution gets it wrong.

Atheist: I will answer your questions but you tell me what darkness is. You tell me what is dark matter if you know.

The SUN our light? (2)

As a christian I cannot view the sun as real light. It is a created light. A light spoke into existence by God. The great light to rule the day. Natural? yes. Real? no. Christ is the true Light there is no other Light to Light men but Jesus Christ.

This true light that is God lights every man that comes into the world. That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world. (John 1:19) Yet Jesus said to beware that the light that is in us be not darkness.Take heed therefore that the light which is in you be not darkness. (Luke 11:35)

Can light be darkness? Yes because Jesus said so.  That’s right he said so. Love others and walk in the light which is God’s love. Hate others and stumble in the darkness one can feel. That darkness that is evil that is terrifying that is death.

He said if the light that is in you be darkness how great is that darkness. But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness! (Matthew 6:23) He referred to the spiritual darkness that will overcome the man and shroud him in great darkness. If he reaches out his hand to iniquity.

How does the light that is in us when we are born, which is God, become darkness? Transgression against the laws of God. It is called sin.

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24)

They may think they can serve God and Satan the world and the flesh, but they cannot do good and evil both and expect that light to shine. It cannot be. Satan will always compromise with God but God will never compromise with Satan. If evil is done the Lord cannot be there. He cannot be where sin and darkness are. Because he is LIGHT.

Atheists think that the world would be a better place without Christians. But without the Christians there would be that darkness Jesus Christ warned of.

Christ in the Christians is the light of the world.

1 John 1:5: This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don’t tell the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

There is a darkness without the sun. If one could imagine a world without the sun he would see a terrifying world; a world of darkness and cold. I would imagine stark fear for one could not know what is there beside him. Or behind him or waiting to meet him. It is a fact that evil is present in the universe. It is real and without mercy. Darkness invites evil. Without the sun all things would die.

Evil men do their evil deeds in the darkness. They think they can hide there.

They lurk and wait in the darkness for their prey.

When one dies he goes where the sun doesn’t shine. There is no light beyond the grave. Jesus said he is the Light of the world. The world he said, but what of the other world that exists beyond the last breath?

Whoever has not considered his last breath has not considered. He who has not carefully regarded his life beyond his last breath has not regarded the fact that death is exactly that; death. Death is not the lack of existence it is the end of earthly awareness.

The sun is not our light. Christ is the true light and without him there is no light only darkness. No world can exist without the true light.

The world would be a dark cold terrifying place of instant death without the sun. Death for all life. Life comes from God alone it cannot be created in a lab or imagined into reality. Only God can create life. He is himself LIFE.

To die without the true light which is Jesus Christ,  is without doubt the great darkness Jesus warned of.

Don’t leave this world without Christ in you the hope of glory!

Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)

In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness did not comprehend it.
[The light in every man shines in the darkness of man, pleading with him to forsake evil; but man in his darkness does not grasp what God is trying to explain to him.] (John 1:4-5)
