Vain Imaginations: A World of Futility


One of Napoleon’s compatriots in a war casually expressed to Napoleon that he planned on starting his own religion once the war was over. Napoleon quipped in reply,

“That should not be too difficult... —all you have to do is die and come back from the dead”.

Despite his many faults (and Catholic misunderstanding of the Scriptures), Napoleon recognized and expressed truth, when he said:

“The Bible is no mere book but a Living Creature with a Power that conquers all that oppose it.”

“If once the Deity of Christ be admitted, Christian doctrine exhibits the precision of algebra.”

Those who mock the Bible are like 5-year old’s playing “doctor”; having no true understanding of the topic, babbling on incoherently but with such smug confidence as if they were experts on the topic. They don’t understand the background, let alone the content. They are like a blind man trying to tell everyone else who can actually see, what a certain object looks like. The only ones who could actually be fooled by such a charlatan (or sincere, but deluded person) would be those who are equally or even more blind.

An individual can only believe that 8 + 8 = 16 if he first believes and accepts and understands that 4 + 4 = 8 and 2 + 2 = 4 and 1 + 1 = 2. If one starts with a faulty premise he will end with a faulty conclusion. All of logic is reduceable to an algebraic equation that is either valid or invalid; and the premises and conclusions can also be either false or true. There are no contradictions in the Bible. There are only contradictions in the faulty minds of those who don’t believe 2 + 2 = 4 (or who refuse to believe it, even though they know that it is true; or who believe it is possible that there could be answers other than 4), or those who are easily confused, easily swayed, or who don’t understand the 1 simple rule of the children’s game “Simon Sez”, or who cannot follow the plot of a story, who think that the plot of a novel or a movie changes to suit the whim of the viewer or modern, corrupt, politically correct agendas — who mindlessly imagine that truth is in a state of flux and not static.

Without Faith it is impossible to please God. Faith is not an ether that floats into the brain through the nostrils. Faith is an unshakable knowing that God is True and Immutable, based upon the declarations that God gave us in His unchanging Word; even though one may not have the understanding of how every detail is true (that understanding comes with time and study — and faith is the “Members Only” card that admits you to understanding). You can believe in electricity, and have faith that when you flip a switch, the lights or an appliance will come on — even if you don’t understand the science of electricity or how to wire a house or an appliance. So also, the lights come on in the mind (soul, nature, being) of an individual child of God, if God has wired the mind to believe; which wiring is “hooked up” at regeneration of the elect of His people. Faith originates in no human; even as computer programs do not write themselves, and computers do not build themselves, nor “evolve” from random chance. Faith is a Gift of God via the Holy Spirit, based upon the facts (the Doctrine) of the Word of God. This faith is given to the elect of God’s people, wherewith they believe unto salvation and live unto sanctification. Salvation is regeneration — new birth: the beginning of true life. Sanctification is walking in that salvation / life in obedience to all that God commanded, in appreciation of that life / salvation, and in order to obey, please, and honor God; which is our reasonable duty / service, since those truly redeemed were bought with a price and are no their own. Humanism seduces man from truth to believe that he is his own person, independent of God, and that he chooses his own destiny.
No archaeological discovery has ever disproved the Bible. No scientific discovery has ever disproved the Bible. No philosophy of man has ever disproved the Bible. The Bible has only been proved to be true, time and time again, even by many who have attempted to disprove it.

[Inquire for such books on the Bible and Archaeology, the veracity of the Bible, and the resolution of most all seeming “contradictions” or “errors” in the Bible. There is more secular evidence that Jesus existed than William Shakespeare. There is more certainty that the Hebrew and Greek Bible manuscripts that we have are faithful representations of what the Prophets and Apostles wrote as God breathed into their minds what He wanted written, than we can know for certain that the works of Virgil, Homer, Julius Caesar, or William Shakespeare are faithful to the originals. There are literally tens of thousands of copies of Bible manuscripts, made within 100 years of the originals; the cross comparison of which weeds out scribal errors. On the other hand, of the other secular works referred to, many texts are incomplete, with damaged or missing portions, with sometimes only a half dozen or so copies, which were made up to 800 years after the originals.]

Those who have no desire to know such things do not believe: They stand on the threshold of the truth, but refuse to cross it. Such faith is dead; a mere concept; a lifeless fact; but not dynamic; a theory never put into practice, an plan never undertaken. As St. Augustine expressed,

“Understanding is the reward of faith. Therefore, seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand.”

Sir Francis Bacon expressed,

“If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.”

Like mining for gold or searching for sunken treasure, it takes time and dedication, investment, to uncover riches. Like a crime scene investigator, one must consider all the evidence (keeping in mind that some evidence may be overlooked, and a plethora of truth exists that is not part of the evidence at the limited crime scene itself), and after examining it all, and consdering it all as a whole, rule out that which is not valid or unlikely, and that which remains is most probably that which is true; if properly understood.

[* Over 4 decades ago I played a joke on a married couple, who were friends of mine, whom I knew liked jigsaw puzzles. I bought several puzzles and opened the taped edges carefully, so that they did not cause anyone to suspect that they had been opened. I found 2 puzzles with the same color backing and same thickness of puzzle piece, and put them both in one box, and then sealed it up. I bought a can of spray polyurethane, so they could seal it when done, and have framed. I then waited. Sure enough, it took them a little while, but they discovered my little trick, after hours of confusion; until a light bulb went off in their minds that I was a fiend and that there were two different puzzles in the same box. Things are not always what they seem to be, and often you have to “think outside of the box”. However, in order to understand the Word of God, you must understand the one simple rule, even as in the children’s game “Simon Sez”. You must remember: God Sez! — and God does not ever “un-sez” what He Sez...! God does not lie, change His Mind, contradict Himself, make a mistake, break His Word or Covenant, be untrue, or change the reality of truth. Truth never changes. Evil never becomes good; darkness never becomes light (light dispels the darkness; or light retreats from the darkness); bitterness never becomes sweetness (by a chemical reaction or miracle “something” that was bitter can be made sweet; but bitterness is not sweetness); sin and abominations never become non-sin and virtues. 2 + 2 will never equal anything other than 4. Up is never down (if you stand on your head, which way is up and which way is down, when someone else is standing next to you? one’s perspective can change; but reality never changes). God is True. God is Immutable and cannot change; and therefore, truth cannot change. What God says first sets the Standard by which all subsequent declarations of God are to be understood. God will not contradict Himself, so if there appears to be a contradiction the reader is confused: most probably attempting to squeeze God, like a genie into a bottle, and make God conform to modern sinful man’s confused notions about “fairness” or what sinful man thinks is “good” or “evil” (which changes with each new day on the calendar—and those who pervert the understanding of the unchanging realities of good and evil, God pronounces a curse upon).

Can God Change His Mind...? [And an Utter Demolishment of the Humanistic Myth of Man’s “Free Will” and Arminianism], 506pp., 25.00 + P&H. Lively, profound, revealing, thought provoking, convincing thought, logic, Scripture. Exposes subversion of true Christian faith in counter reformation re-introducing false theology of Origen and Pelagius; corruption of modern church by Jesuits, crypto-jews & terribly deceived humanists (Schleiermacher, Kierkegaard, Spinoza, Barth, Schweitzer, Erasmus of Rotterdam, etc.); undermining of Puritan church by Solomon Stoddard, and much more; dissects false theology from 1 chapter of 2 different books (1 by Dr. Norman Geisler and 1 by Brother Andrew); which dovetails nicely with my, God and Evil [280pp., pb., 18.00 + P&H] and my The Sovereignty of God, Predestination, “Free” Will, and the Protestant Reformation, 192pp., pb., 16.00 + P&H.]

God commands the elect of His people: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God”; and that those who do not shall be shamed (II Timothy 2:15). Those who do not, demonstrate that they are not His (or that they were spiritually still born; or suffered a spiritual crib death). Jesus said: “Every tree is known by its fruit”, “My sheep know My Voice and follow [obey] Me”, and “If ye love Me keep My Commandments”. Even if one does not think that he needs to understand (which contradicts what God commanded; and thus, such a person calls God a liar) because he already “believes”, it is the understanding of the facts in God’s Word that add substance to the faith and prove that it is real and well founded, and not delusion; and only by knowing such facts can one defend what he believes, and also give others reason to believe that it is true. To not study to show thyself approved unto God, to not meditate upon His Law day and night (Scripture says that those who do so are and will be blessed) are unfaithful and wicked stewards. When your infant is born, do you not educate it daily from childhood to young adulthood? Would not a parent be recognized as a fool...? — who said, “My child is already alive; nothing else matters. I don’t need to feed it or teach it anything. I simply ‘love’ my child. That is all that is needed”. Such a person would be a fool because love is not an isolated “feeling”, it is obedience / self-sacrifice / devotion. Even as faith without works is dead (and not faith), so also love without daily expressions of that love, is dead (and not love).

Even as Scripture says,

“14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. 19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils [demons] also believe, and tremble. 20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” (James 2)

Scripture also says,

“But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (I Timothy 5:8).

Faith without (the) works (that God commnaded) is dead; that is, it is counterfeit faith (delusion); that is, it is not real faith. True faith produces that for which God gave it. Obedience to God is the natural outflow of true faith, even as requisite expressions of love are an natural outflow of true love. If someone claimed to love you, but never said or did anything to demonstrate that love — and actually did and said things that were not truly loving — it would not be too long before a rational person doubted that love. So also it is with faith. God gives faith not merely to give someone the warm fuzzies — but as the fuel / energy to produce the “works” of which Scripture speaks: obedience to all that God commanded (which is also the demonstration of love; and love is the fuel that generates obedience, which is self-sacrifice / devotion). The good “works” of which Scripture speaks are not merely “good deeds” (like helping an old lady across the street, holding a door open for someone etc.) that any individual thinks are acts of kindness. It is doing what God commanded, day in and day out; adopting God’s unchanging Law, Morality, Mind, Spirit, Nature, as your own. In fact, what sinful man (including most “Christians”) imagine to be “good works” are actually demonstrations of wickedness in God’s Eyes. Jesus commanded, “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” (Matthew 7:6). Scripture reveals: “Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is Wrath upon thee from before the LORD” (II Chronicles 19:2). God also commands, “Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever” (Deuteronomy 23:6); and God also commands even concerning our own kinsmen who reject the Doctrine of Christ (the Full Counsel of the Word of God — Sound Doctrine): “10If there come any unto you, and bring not this Doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:* 11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” (II John 1).

[* This is any well-wish or blessing, most of which we take for granted and indiscriminately dispense like petals by a flower girl at a wedding. “Take care”, “have a nice day”, even “good-bye”, which is a shortened version of the older English phrase, “God be wi’ ye”. Most individuals think there is nothing wrong with saying such things to just anyone — God says differently.]

Works (obedience to all that God commanded) do not contribute to salvation, but are evidence of salvation. If a newborn baby lays lifeless, making no sound and no movement, showing no signs of life, displaying no signs of hunger, no desire to be cleaned, no one would have any reason to believe that it was alive. Obeying what your father commanded does not make you his son. You being your father’s son is the result of your father’s will and act of procreation. Your obeying your father, walking in his footsteps, establishes you as an honorable son, whom the father will bless and cause to inherit of him. This is really quite simple logic; and the only reason it is resisted is because of the carnal will that does not want to obey God.

Most apropos to our topic of vain imaginations, Napoleon also expressed,

“It is strange what men can believe so long as it is not in the Bible.”

However, “believing” in God and understanding truth (as Solomon experienced in his willful descent into sin, madness, and folly, and which he, in the end, confessed), is meaningless, if you do not obey God, if you do not live what you claim to believe. Such “belief” is sterile; and actually a delusion. Truth and faith, like love, that is not lived, is a fraud, and nonexistent. It is a mere idea. The refusal to utilize faith (resulting in obedience) and the refusal to demonstrate true love (through obedience / self-sacrifice according to what God commanded) is actually a rejection and / or denial of true faith and true love. Imagine someone who has a Trust Fund established for him by a benefactor who deposited money into the account, but the person given the Trust Fund never used the money, never made a withdraw, new wrote a check from that account — he basically ignored it. Imagine now that he lives in debt and in need (deluded that he is successful and happy), all the while having the money that he needs right there, ready for him to use; but he never uses it. In reality, he rejects it. Imagine someone who knows he needs to be on a specific diet, but never does so. Imagine someone who knows what morality is, but never lives morally. Imagine someone who knows the right directions to a certain location but always goes the wrong way on purpose, and suffers for it. “To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17)

[About 26 years ago I was at a Bible conference and the preacher asked the audience, “If you could ask God for anything and He promised to give it to you, what would you ask Him for...?” I knew the answer in my heart immediately, but waited, hoping that someone else knew the answer too. I waited and heard people’s replies: “money,” “power,” “wisdom,” “fame,” “success,” etc. (you would have thought this was a secular financial empowerment convention, not a Bible conference attended by those who supposedly knew the Scriptures). Not even one soul had the ingenuity and humor to answer “Ten more wishes”. I was disappointed, dumbfounded. I waited and waited, hoping someone — anyone — would know the answer. The preacher was about to end his call for answers and I casually looked around, no one else had his hand raised, so I raised mine. He motioned to me to answer. I called out “THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT!” Without batting an eye the preacher pointed at me and declared, “I want what that man wants!”

Sadly, it seems that no one else in the auditorium had a clue — ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth; not even recognizing truth when they heard it; not even caring to inquire, in order to learn more...! The natural [unregenerate, carnal] man beholds his face in a looking-glass, and straightforth goeth away and forgetteth... — forgetting, not caring about all the imperfections that he noticed (or being in such delusion, he sees no imperfections in himself) in the mirror, and goes on with his life, without making any corrections; without repenting of sin; without desiring true godliness (which is not a mysterious ether that wafts through the atmosphere, but which is the internal desire in the heart / mind to please and obey God, deposited there by the Holy Spirit: to please God through obedience to what He commanded; not inventing ones own “good works” and expecting God to accept them instead of what He commanded).

What was even more dumbfounding was that no one (in a crowd of possibly 200 “Christians”, presumably there because they wanted to learn the Word of God)* — not a single one, when he heard the only correct answer (which was confirmed by the minister in his reply to my answer), not a single one asked for an explanation. Furthermore, no one came up to me afterwards to inquire: “Why?” or to ask, “I don’t understand. Will you please explain...?” Not only did they not know the correct answer; they did not even want it explained to them!

* or maybe the conference to them was merely a Country Club gathering; or like those free week-end sales pitch meetings where they try to sell you a time share, in which they give you vouchers for a few free meals and tickets to local amusements; and thus, such individuals “endure” the Bible teaching meetings solely in order to partake of the food and “fellowship”. But Scripture says that you cannot have fellowship with those who reject sound doctrine. Two must be agreed to walk together (Amos 3:3). You cannot have true fellowship with someone who is a humanist, who does not truly believe, love and obey God (and if you don’t obey Him, you don’t love or believe in Him — and you certainly do not fear* Him). Futhermore, such “fellowship” is a danger to the young and to those weaker in mind and faith, who are easily swayed by false doctrine. Some who attend Bible conferences actually are “evangelists” to undermine any true Bible teaching that eminates from the podium. “All you need is love” is an anti-christian, counter-revolutionary Beetles song; not Bible doctrine. Nondoctrinal “Christians” are not Christians, but humanists; and do not even know what love is; because they reject doctrine (or embrace humanism / false doctrine).

* Fearing / loving God entails obeying what He commanded (Ecclesiastes 12:13; Psalm 97:10; Proverbs 3:7) and hating what He hates (Proverbs 8:13; 16:6; 23:17). Without obedience, words and emotional fondness are meaningless.

Why did they not want to know why “the Power of the Spirit” was the only valid answer? The only explanation is that they were spiritually dead. Jesus told the woman at the well,

“13Whosoever [Each man* that] drinketh of this [well’s] water shall thirst again: 14But whosoever [each man* that] drinketh of the Water that I shall give him* shall never thirst; but the Water that I shall give him* shall be in him* a [Living] Well of [Living] Water springing up into Everlasting Life.” (John 4)

[* to be discussed shortly. Also, in English a double negative cancels each other out; in Greek, it intensifies it. Shall never thirst is actually “NEVER NOT thirst forever”. Well would be better rendered, “fount, fountain, spring, or even artisian well”.
Immediately, the woman replied,

“15...Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither [must continually I] come hither to draw”.

Those at that Bible conference, clearly thought, “I have all the water I need; it is in good supply and readily available; I can get it whenever and wherever and in whatever quantity I want” — even though, they did not know what water was when it was splashed in their faces. White-washed sepulchures full of dead men’s bones; hypocrites — Pharisees. Had they known the answer, they would have offered it themselves; but when they heard it, they did not even want to understand it. They did not care about truth; which, again, was dumbfounding concerning why they were even there at a Bible conference.

* Note also that Jesus was not “afraid” of, nor did He “surrender to” the mental deragement of society in delusionally imagining and eschewing so-called “toxic masculinity”. In fact, God established it! No woman wrote any book of the Bible. No women were chosen by Jesus to be Disciples or Apostles. God is masculine (He is our Father, not our Mother; and those “Christian” churches who delusionally imagine Mary to be part of the Trinity — or close to it in authority — are part of the Harlot Church; godly women are to be honored, not worshipped, not place in authority). God established man to be head of the family, Church, and State. Because of this, every single Indo-European language that I have studied (over 50) uses the male pronoun and forms of words as the default, to refer to people in general; and even in nouns such as man-kind and hu-man-ity and wo-man. It might seem plausible that the word woman came from womb-man, but the etymology of the word woman derives from the Old English / Anglo-Saxon wimman from wifmon (wife-man; that is, man’s wife). The f (which can also be a v) was eventually dropped (in Anglo-Saxon and Dutch), even as in the Old English / A.S. hlæfdige, which in Middle English became lafdi / lavede, then lady. adds of hlæfdige,* “literally ‘one who kneads bread,’ from hlaf ‘bread’ (see loaf (n.)) + -dige ‘maid,’ which is related to dæge ‘maker of dough’.”

* In Old English / Anglo-Saxon, the ligature æ (called ash) was pronounced like the short a in ash. In Classical Latin æ was pronounced as a long i, as in aisle / isle (but in post-classical Latin it became a short e as in bet.

In verse 13, “Everyone” [the Greek word pahss] means, “Each man”, and is nominative-masculine-singular; in fact, it is paired with a definite article [ho; short o, as in “hot”] (also nominative-masculine-singular), which is redundant to us, but which would be translated literally, “(the) each man”; in v.14 “whoever” is the definite article [hos] which is also nominative-masculine-singular. Likewise, the 3 instances of the Greek word auto [pronounced, ow-toe] “him” are dative-masculine-3rd-person-singular. Those who oppose God’s Order “out” themselves as friends of the world and enemies of God. God did not make man and woman to be equals; those who reject that concept have a “God-problem”, not a male gender-problem. It is called being Antichrist, and Christ will not return for a “bride” who thinks that she is the groom and He is the bride, or who thinks that the bride and groom are “equals”. Yes, there is an intimate relationship, and a oneness; but they are also distinct and the roles are clear.

How, indeed, will “Christians” stand up and not deny Christ if they are threatened to be beheaded or burned at the stake, if they are too afraid to even use a pronoun! or if they so cowardly and ignorantly (not caring about truth, of which language is a primary component) engage in mindless stupidity in helping to destroy the English (or other Indo-European language) and invalidly mix the “number” of the nouns and verbs in a sentence, in their deranged fear of using a male gender-specific pronoun...! When they have made it a life’s habit to stand for nothing** and remain cowardly silent in the face of every form of immorality when there was relatively no persecution for standing up, how will they ever stand up when it is a matter of life or death...! They will not! Jellyfish do not grow backbones and walk upright; they simply flow with the tide. Even more blasphemously, some “Christian” churches have women (or even lesbian) “preachers” and “elders”; and some even perversely refer to God as a “she”. Morality never changes. Those who think that it does, or who do not know whence morality is derived do not know God.

** Christianity and Christendom would not have been overrun by aliens, alien religions, antichrists, homoperverts, freaks, abortion, crime, corrupt politicians, government misspending and fraudulent, so-called “National” Debt, etc., if Christians actually stood up as God commanded. You reap what you sow. Everyone else reaps what others sow or allow to be sown. If you allow poison ivy or weeds in your garden, field, or lawn (especially wind-blown dandelion-like seeds of extremely invasive weeds) to continue unchecked, ignoring them because you are lazy or indifferent, all your neighbors around you will also suffer. So it is with sin in a family, church, community, and nation. Those who ignore those who are in sin, are accomplices in their sin.

Sadly, the majority of “Christians” (even those who go to Bible conferences) have not had their minds transformed — “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is Life and Peace” (Romans 8:6) and “the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (I Corinthians 2:14) and “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts” (Psalm 10:4). Many are “ever learning but nevr able to come to the knowledge of the truth” because they are unregenerate, or carnally minded. Remember, Christ said that MANY will say unto Christ on the Day of Judgement, “But did we not do all these wonderful works in Thy Name...?” and Christ shall declared, “I never knew you, depart from Me ye that work iniquity [lawlessness: the violation of what God commanded]”. These were not pagans or atheists to whom Christ was speaking, but those who thought they were “good Christians”, even thinking that they had been “serving” Him; that is, actively doing something (but the opposite of what God actually commands), not mere “pew sitters”, like the majority of “church goers” (which number has dwindled to a mere fraction).

Some individuals may go to a Bible conference simply for the experience; as if being there makes them “spiritual”; in a sort of existential “as-if” behaviourist way. “Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart” (I Samuel 16:7) Taking “experience” to another level, charismatic experiences rely upon the emotions, and subjective notions (even personal dreams), not upon the God-given and directed intellect meditating upon the Truth of God’s Word. Faith cometh by hearing the facts / doctrine in the Word of God; not by emotional experience or subjective daydreaming or “visions”. You see (in explanation of my answer, “the Power of the Spirit”), Solomon had unearthly wisdom, Divinely given to him. He understood life and truth and reality better than any human ever has. However, knowing what is right to do and doing it are two entirely different things! All of Solomon’s wisdom in his brain did him little good if he did not have it in his mind (heart, will) to do what he knew was right. This desire and power alone comes from the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit Alone Who restrains the carnal passions within us and enables us to “[through obedience] present your bodies [according to God’s Requirements] a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1). God only accepts worship / service / obedience according to what He commanded, not merely any notion of man, or what each individual [like Cain] is willing to offer. When you go to pay for a meal at a restaurant, the restaurant wants to be paid in money, not chicken feathers, corn on the cob, birdhouses, or anything else that may have value (unless you have a previous contract / agreement). God makes the Contract, and the only acceptable terms are those that He established. God does not receive worship or hear prayers of those in disobedience; including those “worshipping God” in “their own way”. Paul further admonishes and exhorts us: “This I say then, ‘Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh’” (Galatians 5:16); the lusts of the flesh (as the subsequent verses indicate) are the violations of all that God commanded.

Solomon should have asked for wisdom to properly rule the people (which he did ask for) — and for a heart and the power to do what is right and to never turn from doing what God commanded. The forward-thinking David, whose idea it was to build the Lord’s House (and even though the honor was denied him, he asked if he could at least gather the materials — showing his pure heart), counselled his son Solomon to ask God for wisdom (I Chronicles 22:12). If only David had thought to tell his son to ask God also for a tender heart held fast by the Power of God’s Spirit so that he would never stray! See my commentary on Ecclesiastes, 554pp., pb., 30.00 + P&H.]

One of the most-unlikely persons, philosopher, moralist, and humanist Aldous L. Huxley (1894-1963) expressed a timely truth:

“So long as men worship the Caesars and Napoleons, Caesars and Napoleons will duly rise and make them miserable.”

However, he did not realize within his own heart* — and within the heart and mind of each fallen human — a “god complex” that imagines self to be a Caesar or Napoleon, at least, in relation to God (that is, declaration of independence from God and then living ones life as a dictator of his own soul, rejecting the Authority of God).

[* which word in Scripture is synonymous with / refers to the “mind”. Although in both Hebrew (leyb) and Greek (kardia) the word literally means heart, in 95% of verses it refers to the intellect, and also to the will, and the nature; not to emotions or the blood-pumping organ.]

Aldous’ entire existence and profession was meaningless: and doomed to fail from the start; even as if one was lined up for a race, waiting for the starter’s pistol, but facing in the opposite direction from the finish line and then running the wrong way, travelling away from the goal. There is no morality apart from the Bible; and thus, one who attempts to be a “moralist”, while rejecting the Bible, is like someone who attempts to be a blacksmith, but refuses to recognize the need for fire, a hammer, or an anvil! As Dr. Gordon H. Clark has powerfully demonstrated,* no philosophy of man, no political system, and no pagan religion — only the Bible — can rationalize morality or why anyone should want to obey it or why anyone should be forced to obey it. Apart from acceptance of the Authority of the Word of God, every other attempt at philosophy or political theory boils down either to a mere subjective self-choice of any individual to imagine his own notion of a standard of “morality” and then the delusional “hope” that everyone else will respect and conform to it (which, in a world of psychopaths, is like one or two sheep hoping that all the wolves will see the “wisdom” in vegetarianism, and eat grass and not kill and eat sheep); or, it results in totalitarianism in which a few powerful (usually ruthless and hypocritical) individuals will domineer everyone else (crushing all those who resist) and force them to accept their “rules” (though those self-assumed rulers themselves would never accept anyone else’s rules).

The “honor” system works only among the spirit-led people of God — which is why there has ever only been one Christendom, of one people; and the more savages / antichrists that it absorbs, the less Christian it becomes. John Adams, our Second President expressed,

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious* people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”

[* Our Founders, and the Puritans, Pilgrims, and Reformers used the word “religion” as a synonym for “Christianity”. They were not confused. They knew that Christianity was the only religion and that there was only one God; and that all other “religions” were pagan superstitions and the worshipping of idols. They understood what our generation of “Christians” has been lobotomized to be completely oblivious to: that God commanded: “NO other gods!” All other “gods” are deceptions by evil spirits / demons, fooling individuals into thinking that those gods exist; all of which is strong delusion sent by God upon the wicked. Our Founders, and the Puritans and Reformers never for a moment, would have consented to fellowship and worship with savages and pagans; or recognition of all peoples, religions, philosophies, political systems, or genders as being “equal” or valid. Those who do not obey what God commanded do not know God (I John 2:3-6); and those who think that black is white and white is black, that immorality can become morality, that evil become good, darkness can become light, abominations can become virtures — do not know God, are His enemy, and are cursed by Him (Isaiah 5:20,21; James 4:4, Revelation 18:4). Morality never changes. Morality was forever established each time God commanded, “Thou shalt not!” and “This shalt thou do!” Those who think otherwise are confused and don’t know God. God is Immutable. God does not change and conform to modern perverse notions about morality, equality, or fairness.]

In other words, Adams inferred: “Sheep rules are only good for sheep” and “only sheep belong in the sheepfold.”

The perverse philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) stumbled upon a truth (even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then), when he wrote (in his aptly named book, The Antichrist),

“The majority of men prefer delusion to truth. It soothes. It is easy to grasp. Above all, it fits more snugly into a universe of false appearances.”

American political theorist, philosopher, explorer, military tactician Homer Lea (1876-1912), with penetrating insight wrote:

“The Judgements of men are formed, not from facts as they are, but as they wish them to be. They root through tons of good wheat to find three pieces of chaff, if the chaff lends weight to their belief and argument. It is not that they want others to know the truth, but to have them believe as they do. Beyond this they do not care. The conceit of man ordinarily forms his criterion of truth.”

Aldous Huxley himself confessed,

“It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one’s life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than, ‘Try to be a little kinder’.”

Yes indeed! —embarrassing it is! Monumentally! It is as impotent as a doctor telling a dying, suffering patient, “try to feel a little better”; or for a would-be liberator to tell someone in prison on death row, “try to feel a little freer”; or to tell someone who is starving to death, “try to feel a little fuller” (but not giving him any food). Those who hold themselves out to be experts are fools and frauds. Scripture says,

“5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. 7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” (Proverbs 3)

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 4:12 and 16:25)
God declared,

“I call Heaven and Earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you Life and Death, Blessing and Cursing: therefore choose Life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19)
Christ, the Personification of Wisdom declares:

“But he that sinneth against Me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate Me love death.” (Proverbs 8:36)

Aldous Huxley’s older brother, Sir Julian Sorell Huxley (1887-1875), who, like their famous grandfather, was also a famous biologist, was shockingly honest (not recognizing his own shame) when he declared,

“[I suppose the reason that] we all jumped at [believing] the [Darwinian] Origin [of the Species, thereby embracing Evolution] was because the [very] idea of God interfered with our sexual mores.*” [Brackets mine for clarity.]

* Mores (a Latin word prounounced like the eels, morays) are “folkways or customs of central importance that are accepted by society without question, which embody the fundamental moral views of society”. Mores also entail the recognition of societal taboos. Taboos are particularly vile forms of immorality. Sadly, as our society becomes less and less Christian, as we absorb pagan peoples, we have “less mores” and what were once universally recognized in civilized (that is, Christian) lands as taboos, are now considered, “perfectly normal lifestyle choices” — and traditional Biblical Morality and Values are demonized and considered the greatest of evils, crimes, and are themselves considered “taboo” by the subverters of society (who call evil ‘good’ and good ‘evil’) and the masses of immoral, mindless lemmings and sycophants that follow them. Christians who remain silent in the face of such evil deny Christ; and demonstrate that they are enemies of God by being friends of the world; rejecting the God and Jesus of the Bible, and accepting the Apostate Church’s giving God and Jesus a modern “makeover”, transforming God into an all-loving, doting old grandfather who requires nothing and smiles at everything; and turning Jesus into a passive, tolerant, indiscriminate Gandhi. Most “Christians” are Hindus and don’t know it. There are limitless billions of gods in Hinduism: each superstitious Hindu inventing his own god in his own mind, the way each superstitious Hindu imagines his (imaginary) god(s) to be. So also do most “Christians” believe in a false god and a false christ, imagining God and Jesus to be the way that sinful self thinks that God and Jesus should be — while rejecting the Word of God concerning God’s True and Immutable Nature, Decrees, Law, and Plan. God Himself rebukes such: “thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove [rebuke] thee, and set them [Truth] in order before thine eyes.” (Psalm 50:21) False doctrine is a sin. Most “Christians” believe idolatrous, superstitious humanism, not theology. Theology is God centered; humanism is man centered. Most “Christians” are humanists with a slight (and highly blasphemously distorted) “Jesus-fetish”. “Nondoctrinal Christianity” is not Christianity, but humanism. Humanism is Satanism in disguise (since Satan seduces people into worshipping anything other than God and which is Antichrist).

Again, see my book, Does God Repent...? Can God Change His Mind...?]

Why is it that the majority of people, who are incredibly blessed to be in Christendom* refuse to believe that God exists...? —because if they admitted that the God of the Bible existed, and that the Bible is True, they would have to admit that they are, therefore, dutybound to obey Him! Our institutions of learning, entire professions, the “government”, and even the mainstream Christian Church have been utterly subverted, teaching evolution and humanism. Even the majority of “Christian” churches, since the 1920s in the U.S., have not believed that Jesus is God, in the virgin birth, the Resurrection, infallibility of the Bible, etc. Modernly, the majority of “Christian” churches espouse wickedness and perversion; again, in complete contradiction of what the Word of God says. This has only been possible because of liberalism, modernism, and humanism, socialism and hedonism —all of which continually move all of the boundaries left, more and more, year after year; even as addicts need a stronger drug, a more depraved perversion, a bigger risk, heist, or con (gamblers, daredevils, criminals). Tell me, WHY would someone who does not even believe the Bible want to be a pastor or theologian? —the only possible answer seems to be that Satan had so deluded them so that they can help destroy the Christian Church and Christendom from within.

[* —including those who have no right to be here; though they are completely ignorant that it is a blessing, and who actually do all that they can to destroy Christendom. Such are like a person on the side of a cliff, standing on a solitary tree projecting from a crag in the rock, that tree having saved his life after having fallen; and he is sawing off the branch that he is standing on, thinking, “I’ll show this tree who’s boss!” Many antichrist invaders of Christendom are atheists — but not content, as Edomite Pharisees of old, to go to Hell alone; they must drag along with them all whom they can, by turning them into atheists and children of Hell like themselves. The majority of “Christians” don’t even believe in the Virgin Birth, that Jesus is God, that Jesus is only one way to Eternal Life, that Hell exists, that God created the universe as depicted in Genesis 1.* The majority of “Christians” believe in Evolution. You cannot be a Christian and believe in Evolution. Most “Christians” believe the very opposite of what Jesus said and commanded. They believe that the Law of God (the only Standard of Morality in every single area of life) was “abolished” — even though Jesus commanded us NOT to think that; and He said that not the smallest letter, or the slightest hook on the top of a letter in the mechanical writing of the Law would pass away (not one jot or tittle; or more properly, keraia, “horn”). You cannot believe God and also not believe God. It is not obedience to pick and choose what decrees and commands you will obey that your master has given you. That is doing what you want. Atheists did not found the United States or Christendom; neither did Third-world peoples, antichrists, savages, or followers of any other “religion”. Their fleeing their own lands and flooding to Christendom is not only the fulfillment of Bible Prophecy (the Dragon vomiting forth a Flood to drown the woman, the Bride of Christ, the true people of Christendom), but it is a declaration that their nations are not worth living in, and the only civilization worth living in is Christendom. However, ironically, the more that their own people invade Christendom, demand “rights” to vote and hold office, the more they change our nations and Christendom, into the type of unstable, uncivilized, wicked nations from which they fled. The antichrists that have illegally assumed power (by hook and by crook) in the nations of Christendom, then turn the savage antichrist masses against Christians within Christendom!

* See my booklets: The Biblical Textual Evidence that God did not Create the World Via Any Form or Type of Evolution “Theistic” or Otherwise - A Brief Commentary on Genesis Chapter 1 as it Pertains to Evidence Refuting Evolution, 88pp., 7.00 + P&H; and Stephen Hawking: Cosmic Tragedy — Hawking Fake Science... & A New Evolutionary Theory of The Universe, 78pp., 7.00 + P&H (refutes atheistic anti-God evolution and utterly shreds Hawking’s illogic).]

Atheists, agnostics, or those who reject the Sovereign Biblical God in favor of their own imaginary human-pleasing god, may anti-intellectually imagine to themselves, “Even if God does exist, I did not ask to be brought into this world, so I am not dutybound to obey God if He exists. It is MY life!” — and yet, no infant, child, or adult that I have ever met* has ever told me that he chose for his parents to conceive him (and if any individual ever made such a claim, I would imagine drugs, organic brain damage, blunt force trauma, or other mental derangement or spiritual delusion would be the explanation). Thus, most every sane person, I believe, would agree, that no infant ever “asked” his parents to conceive him or her; and yet, it is generally understood within the civilized (and even uncivilized world) that children are to obey their parents — even though they never asked to be brought into the world.

[* But, I don’t get out much, and have not met as many people as the reader may have had the unfortunate opportunity to have met; but I have read a plethora of shameful rantings on the internet, which alone informs the reader that humanity, and what passes for it, is utterly depraved and wicked. It can be said of today, what Scripture recorded of the world in Noah’s day, before the Flood: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the Earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5) Indeed, this is what Scripture prophesies in echo of those former wicked times, as Christ declared:

“37But as the days of Noe [no-eh; the Greek spelling of Noah] were, so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the Flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the Ark, 39And knew not [God’s approaching, inescapable Judgment] until the Flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24)

There is nothing wrong with eating, drinking, marrying [men taking wives], and giving in marriage [fathers giving their daughters in marriage] in general, therefore, what this refers to, is doing these things in violation of all the moral boundaries that God established and commanded.]

However, the more that antichrists pollute and subvert our nations, the more the State* usurps power; and parents are told that they have less and less authority over their own children (because the State thinks that it is “God” and claims to own everyone and operates under the false assumption that everyone derives their very existence from the State); parents are taught that they have no right to decide what philosophy or “moral” code their children are taught (that is, if it is “Christian” philosophy / moral code) and that the All-Powerful State alone decides what children should be taught — even teaching them in grade school about pagan religions and that sexual perversion is normal and desireable.

[* —a fictitious entity. In reality, a State / Government cannot exist without people. The State / Goverment is people — the true people; not those who subvert and usurp the nation and government; and not renegade, corrupt politicians or appointed persons who comprise “agencies”; which agencies are not “the Government”, but public servants who are guilty of High Treason if they think that they are the Government and the people are serfs.

The notion that “I did not ask God to create me; I did not ask Him to bring me into existence; therefore, I don’t have to obey him” and the modern communist (for that is what it is) notion that children don’t have to obey their parents (but they have to believe in and obey the State-god) is not only hypocritical, but it violates the U.S. Constitution, and it contradicts nature — and again demonstrates the anti-intellectual hypocrisy of evolutionists who believe that we all evolved from animals. Even in the animal kingdom animal parents demand their offspring to do what the parent wants them to do; and even use force to make the offspring do it (barking a command, giving a nip, pushing, kicking, herding them, even picking them up in their mouths and carrying them by the neck).
However, God designed humans to need to be cared for by their parents for a far-longer period of time than animal offspring need to be cared for.* Both herbivores and carnivores among animals ween their offspring rapidly (within a few weeks or months); and even though the young, as they grow older, may still nurse some, they are taught to attempt to eat solid food on their own by watching their parents, and by the mother “kicking off”, or refusing to allow the offspring to nurse, after a certain point in time. Were it not for predators, most animals, after a few weeks, could live on their own (and offspring who exercise their own “free will” and stray from their parents often fall prey to predators).

[* —which would seem to contradict the notion of “evolutionary progress”; higher species via this mythical process should mature more quickly, with less attention and governance; not more time and attention.]

However, human infants require special care and feeding for several years; and beyond that, several more years, during which time they are taught language and (hopefully, if they have respectable, civilized parents) morality. Some human young, even as early as the age of possibly 5, “might” be able to survive, if there were not predators (including the 2-legged type), extremes of temperature, and disease. However, even if they were to survive, on their own, in the wild, they would not learn language, they would not learn morality, they would be devoid of all the benefits of civilization and accumulated wisdom and advancement; they would be like nearly mindless savages; and would die or be scarred by making many mistakes in a harsh, unforgiving natural world under the Curse of the Fall (due to gravity, physics, the softness and frailty of the human body, the weight, hardness, and sharpness of many objects in nature, poisonous plants, etc.). This would not be life; but mere existence (and uncertain at that). Where then did such civilization, advancement, truth, morality, language, and knowledge come from...? —Adam did not evolve from a monkey! God created him fully formed and civilized and instructed him in truth; and hard-wired his mind to receive and desire truth); and generation after generation that truth was conveyed by word of mouth and built upon by personal experience, thought, and subsequent Divine Revelation. Man did not evolve — but has devolved the more he has rejected the only true God and embraced savagedom. The more that man has been taught and believes that he evolved from animals — the more like animals he acts: eats, thinks, breeds, and behaves. “The curse causeless shall not come”; “be not deceived, God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap”.

The carnal mind rejects truth, and will twist and distort a clear lesson and then falsely infer invalid and untrue ideas: and thus, most “Christians” are eventually, by continual doses of humanism (in the churches, schools, and the media) taught to “wean themselves off” and “become independent of” and “outgrow” God completely. Humanism (and Liberalism / Modernism / so-called “Progressivism” in the churches, which accounts for 95% of so-called Christian teaching modernly) is the “Step Down Plan” (like the niccotine patch) for a person to eventually “kick the bad habit” of believing in the true God — who is not a mere idea, but the Center, Origin, Power and Truth Source, and Sovereign Lord of the Universe. False doctrine (liberalism, humanism, etc.) is like a rotten tooth — if not extracted, it will rot out all those next to it, until there are no teeth left at all. God commands us to be vigilant, to contend for the Faith — the unchanging Faith once / originally delivered unto us (the faith that God delivered to us through His Prophets and Apostles, which revelations were then collected to form His Word) — not the deluded “faith” of subjective dreams and notions of mentally unstable individuals who think they heard God because they had a dream or thought that they had a “vision”. These “lying signs and wonders” are everything from UFOs to allegedly crying or bleeding statues, a cloud formation, or just a crazy dream (and mental derangement and drugs cannot be ruled out in many cases). When those who are not God’s people, those who reject sound doctrine, those who claim notions that contradict Scripture, those who live in sin, those who violate the Order that God established and usurp and pervert that Order claim to have had a word from God — it was not a word from God, other than Strong Delusion through an intermediary (demon, evil spirit). Those who reject sound doctrine are to be excommunicated because they will infect the minds of others. Once one Bible Doctrine is rejected, in time, more and more will be rejected, until all that exists is a mere façade; and those who observe what is left merely go through a charade, from man’s perspective, and practice an abomination from God’s Perspective (which is the only true perspective). Each successive generation suffers attrition: Fewer and fewer believe or see any need even to continue the memory of what they consider to be merely a useless “folkway”; and before long it shall be abandoned altogether (or merely remain as a pagan holiday like Christmas and Easter*).

[* Both of these “Christian” holidays are actually pagan in their origin, hybridized with some elements of Christianity (which is an abomination to God). The few Christians who are left, cling to the holidays (though they center around man) as if they were Christian; while the nonchristian masses observe them merely as a time of fun and games, frivolilty, parties, decorations, and giving of gifts to each other.

See my booklet, Merry Antichrist-mas...? Is Christmas Christian or Pagan...? —Is it Pagan even if Christ is in it...?, 24pp., 3.00 + P&H. Are you a Christian? be prepared to be challenged. Do you love the Lord God / Christ Jesus more than Christmas...? If you won’t even take the challenge, I guess that answers the question.

Most “Christians” don’t want to know they truth. They think that their “feelings” or subjective thoughts legitimize that which is illegitimate, simply because they like it. They think that God will just accept whatever they offer, because they are ego-centric and think God conforms to them, and because they have no understanding of what Holiness is. They also suffer from the Three Stooges Syndrome: “I can’t see! I can’t see!” “Why not...?” “—my eyes are closed!” They are closed willfully and God is NOT amused. They are content in their ignorential bliss thinking that God won’t hold them responsible for that of which they are ignorant. However, ignorant sin is still sin. Furthermore, God commanded us to daily study and meditate upon His Word and Law, and after a point in time ignorance itself is a sin. Yet the majority of “Christians” still don’t care, believing in a bloodless, repentanceless, man-centered, “Touched By An Angel” theology: “God loves you just the way you are; no need to change a thing”. There is no repentance without stopping what God forbade and doing what He commanded, confessing the sin and asking forgiveness; and without true repentance, there is no forgivness, and therefore, no blood applied (Hebrews 10:26,27).]

This is leading to “as in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the Coming of the Son of man” and “when the Son of man cometh, shall He find Faith [yet up]on the Earth?” (Luke 18:8). Faith is not a free-floating phenomena. Faith exists solely within the elect of God’s people — and true faith produces that which God gave it to produce: obedience in thought and deed. The inference of “will He find Faith on the Earth” is that the elect of God’s people shall nearly be extinct. This is actually what Christ also revealed: “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh [of the elect of God’s people] be saved: but for the Elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22) Christ also revealed this sentiment in His declaration, “As in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the Coming of the Son of man” (Matthew 24:37). How many souls were saved on the Ark? Was that number of souls saved on the Ark a significant percentage or tiny fraction of the greater population on Earth at the time?

“Here is the Patience [Perseverance] of the saints: here are they that keep the Commandments of God, and the Faith of Jesus.” (Revelation 14:12)

“And the Dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the Commandments of God, and have the Testimony of Christ Jesus.” (Revelation 12:17)

The Faith of Jesus is not merely a concept, a nice idea, an inspirational thought — it is the embracing of and living by the Full Counsel of the Word of God (the Decrees, Law, Covenants, and Doctrine of the Word of God — not one jot or tittle of which has passed or shall pass*) which is evidence of regeneration.

[* The Law itself has not passed away. However, the blood sacrifices for atonement, did not “pass away” either; they were fulfilled in Christ’s Eternal Sacrifice of Himself for the elect of His people. What was “abolished” was the Curse of the Law — the Judgment, the Death Sentence against us. It was abolished because Christ paid it in full and God does not dishonestly “double bill”. All the rest of the Law (which had nothing to do with salvation, the dietary laws, laws of marriage, international relations, Sabbath, laws of cleanliness, laws against usury, murder, theft, lying in court, etc.) are all completely unchanged and are the “House Rules” that God commanded His people to obey. It is the only Code of Morality. God does not hear the prayers of those in sin. God does not bless those in sin; but often will chasten them to repentance — and if you sin and do not receive chastisement, you are a bastard and not a son (Hebrews 12:8). Obedience is required for blessing, the answer to prayer, placement in the kingdom / inheritance — and to be an honorable son.

Christ taught Occupy till I come (not surrender or blend in with the world), and Paul wrote, have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but REBUKE them... this is not consonant with “turning the other cheek” to GOD’S enemies, the enemies of Christendom: immoral people, aliens, perverts, criminals, antichrists, etc., which is not what Christ was teaching; So, You Call Yourself A Christian...; powerful primer proving God’s Law could not have been abolished not only because of God’s Promises, but because of God’s very nature.

No human “converts” to Christianity; and no human “converts” another person to Christianity. The Holy Spirit converts the elect of God’s people at the time of each individual elect’s regeneration and repentance (like a newborn, crying out; with a change of mind, accompnied by a change of behaviour) and the evidence of that is the change of life from sin to obedience to what God commanded. Sin is transgression of the Law (I John 3:4).

[I guess John did not “get the memo” that someone abolished the Law of God (for Jesus did not; and said that it never would be abolished — and Paul did not abolish the Law; he had no authority to, and he also declared that the Law was not abolished, but confirmed / established (Romans 3:31). Those who think Paul says anything to the contrary are profoundly blind and have no business teaching the Word of God. They do not know God (I John 2:3-6); nor understand God’s Nature* or the nature of Logic or Bible Doctrine. Even as pronouns refer to different people, so also words for law, salvation, etc. do not all refer to the same law or salvation of the spirit / redemption / forgiveness of sin. John wrote his Epistles after he wrote Revelation; having been released from exile on Patmos. If the Law of God was abolished, it is impossible for anyone to sin; there is no need for anyone to repent of or be saved from anything; and Christ did not even need to die! Where there is no law there is no penalty; no guilt.

“Confessing” or “denying” Christ is not mere assent that you know His Name or believe that He is God — the demons themselves believe, and even tremble...! (James 2:19) — but the majority of “Christians” never tremble: for they have no fear* of God; which is why they live as wickedly as they do, with impunity. “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, as Alexander Pope wrote, insightfully, when he was only 22 years old (see Appendix).

[* Indeed, perfect love casts out fear (I John 4:18); but love is not a gushy emotion. Love is self-sacrifice (I John 4:10): obedience. “15If ye love Me, keep My Commandments.... 21He that hath My Commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him” (John 14); “If ye keep My Commandments ye shall abide in My Love, even as I have kept My Father’s Commandments and abide in His Love” (John 15:10). Jesus had no commandments of His Own apart from the Father. Whose will did He come to do? Whose business was He continually about? He set the example for us in all areas, and was tempted in all areas, even as we are, “yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). Jesus’ Commandments are God’s Commandments; and vice versa. Jesus Himself is Creator, Lawgiver, and Judge; even as God the Father is. Children demonstrate their love by obeying their father and mother; wives show their love by obedience and submission to their husbands; likewise servants their masters. All such submissively — lovingly obey, seek their father’s / husband’s / master’s betterment; anticipate his needs; seek to please and honour him and do his will. Those who don’t are rebellious, renegade, unfaithful, shameless, and shameful. There is a reason that God calls the elect of His people both His children and the Bride of Christ (and also God’s servants / slaves). However, Scripture also warns those who live as if they are their own (which is evidence of unregeneracy) — “But if ye [sin and] be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons” (Hebrews 12:8). Disobedience is unfaithfulness. The parable of the 10 Virgins (Matthew 25:1ff.) also informs us that the unfaithful / disobedient shall be rejected and shut out. Again, Christ warns that MANY who thought that they were good Christians, even doing “wonderful works” in His Name (but things other than — even the opposite of what God commanded, while ignoring what God did command, in “good ole Pharisee fashion”) shall hear on the Day of Judgment, “I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity [anomos, lawlessness]” (Matthew 7:23). Again, being unconcerned is evidence of unregeneracy and being under Strong Delusion. Perfect love (obedience) casts out fear; but delusion causes one to be unconcerned when there is reason for fear.

“There is therefore now no Condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1)

“Walking in the Spirit” is a synonym for obedience to all that God commanded (Galatians 5:16-21). Only those who are regenerate can walk in the Spirit — with the Holy Spirit, in the direction that He is going (and the Holy Spirit will never lead into disobedience / sin). The only “good works” that God recognizes are those that He commanded:

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)

“5:33Ye shall walk in all the Ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.... 8:6Therefore thou shalt keep the Commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in His Ways, and to fear Him.... 30:16In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in His Ways, and to keep His Commandments and His Statutes and His Judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee.” (Deuteronomy) [and many other passages]

Those who fear and love God obey Him; they don’t brainstorm excuses why they do not have to obey; or run after false teachers who will help them justify their disobedience. Obeying the Law does not save. Righteousness does not come through obeying the Law. Regeneration is of the Holy Spirit and those truly regenerate are clothed in the Righteousness of Christ — and will then walk as He walked, in holiness and obedience.

“26For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27But a certain fearful looking for of Judgment and Fiery Indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.” (Hebrews 10)

A person cannot “lose” his salvation, even as a person cannot be “unconceived” or “unborn”. The point is, those who sin wilfully (believing the voice of strangers; and rejecting the clear Commands of Christ Jesus; pollutedly interpreting all that is in the Scriptures through the corrupt filter of the modern wicked world, and according to what “self” wants to believe; expecting God to change His Immutable Law to accomodate them and their sin) were never regenerated. Like the rich young ruler, or those who find the Pearl of Great Price (Matthew 13:45ff.), they consider the cost (everything) “too much”, and were merely window shopping; never made it theirs, and continued on down the avenue to buy something that they deemed to be “more important”. Mere knowledge of the truth (observation of a few facts) is not the same as regeneration / conversion. Again, even the demons believe. True faith results in obedience / self-sacrifice. Every tree is known by its fruit.

“7...the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, 8In Flaming Fire taking Vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Christ Jesus: 9Who shall be punished with Everlasting Destruction from the Presence of the Lord, and from the Glory of His Power; 10When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that Day.” (II Thessalonians 1)

The Gospel is something to be obeyed. Christ is not glorified through disobedience. Those who do not obey God do not know Him (again, see I John 2:3-6). Those who believe, those who love — obey.

“19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which [Who] is in you, which [Whom] ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (I Corinthians 6)

Those who live as if they are their own, most probably, were never bought with a price. Christ is not Saviour of those for whom He is not LORD. If He is Redeemer, He is Owner. The unregenerate are under Divine delusion, thinking that they are self-emancipated children and self-emancipated wives, self-emancipated servants who think that they are their own and do not need to obey. Those truly regenerate will want to learn more, so they can obey and please God and be honorable sons and wives; the wicked, unregenerate rush headlong into their folly, unconcerned. They think that they can have all their needs met without having to do anything the job requires; or do only what they want to do; what they are willing to offer. Satan and false prophets have taught God’s people the very opposite of what the Word of God says; and yet, the majority are unconcerned and seek after the false prophets who will teach them what they want to hear.]

Most “Christians” don’t actually believe in God — if they did, they would not live as they do. If a “Christian” does not fear God, he does not know God: for he would know that God is Holy and Just and must and will punish sin. Those who think that God abolished His Own Law don’t even know God (I John 2:3-6) but believe in a false god invented in their own mind or the local pagan shrine which they think is a Christian Church. As I have, for many years, asked: Tell me, exactly how many Attributes of God, or Declarations of God could a person NOT believe, and yet still believe in the true God? What percentage? What percentage of a glass of orange juice could be sewer water and you still consider it orange juice and serve to your family? Well, it is not man who makes the rules, it is not man who determines such things, but God; and it behooves those who claim to believe in Him to believe what He has said about Himself, not what false prophets and blind pastors say, which contradict the Word of God. Again, those who don’t care demonstrate their unregeneracy; and those unconcerned with that statement, again demonstrate their unregeneracy. “Christians” have no fear of God because they believe in a Jesus remodeled after Gandhi, not the Biblical Jesus, and they believe in “Touched By An Angel”, theology, the humanistic notion that God is “ALL LOVE” and nothing else. They do not fear God because they have been sent Strong Delusion to believe a lie. It is not that psychopaths (renamed “sociopaths”, as if the individual is not responsible and that it is society’s obligation to “rehabilitate” that which cannot be rehabilitated) don’t know the difference between right and wrong; it is that they don’t care and don’t think that it applies to them. Why is it that most “Christians” are more like Hindus and psychopaths?

“They have healed* also the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace’; when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:14; 8:11)

[* That is, they put a mere band-aid on a broken arm or cancer].

“2For yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3For when they shall say, ‘Peace and safety’; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5Ye are all the Children of Light, and the Children of the Day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the Breastplate of Faith and Love;* and for an Helmet, the Hope of Salvation. 9For God hath not appointed us to Wrath, but to obtain Salvation by our Lord Christ Jesus.” (I Thessalonians 5)

[* Again, faith that does not produce what God gave the faith to produce is not faith; is dead; is counterfeit. Likewise, love that does not demonstrate obedience / self-sacrifice (as the father, husband, master requires) is not love; but sterile; a delusion.]

“8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as Children of Light: 9(For the Fruit [Package; the Produce] of the Spirit is in all Goodness and Righteousness and Truth;) 10Proving* what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5)

[* “Proving” is done through obedience; performing as the inventor / manufacturer intended; fulfilling its design and purpose. It is functioning as the inventor / manufacturer intended; not according to one’s own whims.]

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their [own] means [hand; thus inferring, by their own will]; and My people love to have it so.” (Jeremiah 5:31)

“My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them [God’s sheep] away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain [large nation] to hill [small nation], they have forgotten their Restingplace.” (Jeremiah 50:6)

Because the majority of “Christians” do not love God and have no fear of God they have no concern that they may even be sinning against God (by believing the false doctrine that the Law of God was abolished),* and that is why they do not repent, fall on their knees, and study this matter, before continuing on in sin thinking that it does not matter; or believing that Jesus abolished the Law — though He said NOT to think such because He did not do so and it was impossible for that to happen (Matthew 5:17). Again, the natural (unregenerate) man is unconcerned, and cannot receive the things of God, and refuses to and cannot be in submission to them (Romans 8:7). Such ill concern is evidence of unregeneracy. Confessing or denying Christ is done daily through how one thinks, speaks, and lives; not according to one’s own standards, but according to what God commanded and forever established as Morality and Holiness. A “Christian” is a follower — an imitator of Christ. Confessing Christ is standing up for what Christ would stand up for (which entails knowing Christ and adopting His Mindset and Lifestyle and not assuming that Jesus is supposed to immitate you and do what you do). Each time that “Christians” see evil in their home, church, community, etc., and say nothing, they deny Christ.

[* If you were a carpenter and your church hired you to renovate the sanctuary and pastor’s office, after you submitted your bill and were paid in full, imagine if someone privately brought to your attention that you had done your math wrong and you had actually overcharged your church by double... would you not stop dead in your tracks, not even be able to sleep, have no appetite to eat, and not have a moment’s peace of mind, being unable to concentrate on or enjoy anything else, until you had gone over all of your calculations and accounting, and upon seeing your errors and realizing that you had unintentionally double-billed, and then contacted the church and made things right...? WHY then, when you have been told repeatedly that God’s Law was not abolished and that you are in sin against God, which is contributing to the Judgment of your own house, church, community, nation, and all of Christendom, why, like the unregenerate man, after hearing or reading such earthshattering revelation, do you casually go about your life as if you never heard it? as if it did not matter? How can you not fall on your face before God and pray, “God, if indeed I am in sin please forgive me and please show me and please change my corrupt sinful heart, mind, nature, and will, and empower me by Your Holy Spirit to obey and desire to obey you”, and then get out your Bible and read the plethora of passages that I (in hundreds of books, booklets, and articles; and if you have read none other than this one, this one should be enough) have quoted and explained and cross-referenced, and shown the logical errors and false doctrines of the modern notions that contradict what Jesus Himself said, and what God’s Word says...? How can you casually continue on in your sin? Scripture gives us the answer too:

“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)

“1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the Power thereof: from such turn away. 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (II Timothy 3)

At one of my websites, for several years now 3,000 to 8,000 individuals regularly read any article (which may take me 10 to 200 hours to write) that I post, for free, yet not a single one has ever asked a question...! let alone said “thank you”, ordered a book, or sent a donation. Why do they keep reading...? Admittedly, after my challenging, many have stopped reading (and Christ Himself spoke hard sayings that were true, so that some would stop following Him; John 6:60-66). Why do those who still read on a regular basis, continue to read if the words are meaningless to them...? It indeed is a mystery. “Ever learning [or at least, ever “reading”], and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” At worst, God has never regenerated their spirits, or at least, has not converted their minds.

Things don’t add up. If someone told you that what you are eating is actual poison, would you continue, like a pig at a trough, to slurp it up unconcerned...? —even knowing that you were feeding it to your entire family? What if what you were eating was something abominable — dog feces made into hamburgers, or human flesh roasted like chicken...? What would it take to get your true attention to the point that you stopped, shocked, revolted, ashamed...? Every sin should cause such a reaction (which was the very purpose of Peter’s Vision, which had nothing to do with the dietary laws being abolished, for they were not*). Someone truly regenerated has the Holy Spirit indwelling him, to actually convict him of sin; he will not continue like a pig at a trough in the face of the preaching against sin in his life.

* Again, see my booklet, So, You Call Yourself a Christian....

Right and Wrong — Morality — Reality is not determined by what each individual “likes”; but that is how they operate (including most “Christians”). “Christians” continue, unphased in their sin, because they love their sin and its fruit, its generational offspring, its by-products, its pleasure more than they love God. You cannot love God and mammon.*

* literally, “wealth”; but used figuratively of “self-interest”, which is what wealth actually is: an established medium of exchange or accumulation of “things” that “self” wants. Wealth is not desired intrinsically, but for what self can use that wealth for, to please self.

God / Christ Jesus will not tolerate being merely one of the many gods on your totem pole. The vast majority of “Christians” would choose their family over God. They do; which is why the family and the church and society has collapsed. They embrace what God forbade, called sin and abominations, and expect God to “change” and “compromise”, and accept them and their sin. They thus demonstrate that they do not even know God. The vast majority of “Christians” remain aloof and unmoved by such words. I care. That is why I continue to write, and pray that God truly turns the hearts and minds of His people to Himself, truly convicts them, gives them the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Repentance (and without change of life — stopping what God forbade and doing what He commanded — there is no repentance). Christendom is destroyed. There is no Rapture.* The true Church (the elect of God’s people) go through the Tribulation, which is upon us. Christ will not return for a rebellious bride unwilling to submit to His Rule, who don’t even know His Voice, who follow the voice of strangers that contradict what He Himself said — who don’t even care when they are warned...! That is why Christ shall say to MANY who thought they were “good Christians” — “I never knew you; depart from me ye that work iniquity [lawlessness]”.

* See my book, The Futurist and Rapture Conspiracy: A Brief Exposé of the History of these Subversive Doctrines—and Their Biblical Refutation, 164pp., pb. illustrated, 13.00 + P&H. revealing; shady characters behind false doctrines of Futurism, Dispensationalism, “any moment” “two-stage” “Rapture” Return of Christ. Christ is returning; but not according to modern Antichrist heresy / new new-age false doctrines not held by Reformers or great Bible leaders of early modern era. Order direct; not from Amazon. Support the minister, ministry, author, publisher, not an antichrist organization that takes the majority of the money and then uses part of it to destroy Christendom.

Why do 3,000 to 8,000 “Christians” regularly read my writings at my Ancient Heritage Foundation website? Are their pastors not meeting their needs? If not, why are such their pastors? Would you eat at one restaurant for free, and then go and pay an entirely different restaurant for the meal? It is like a man being married and then having a lover on the side. If a person was properly fed at home, why would he seek sustenance elsewhere? If such don’t have a pastor, why not? God commands it. He commands accountability. If such don’t care about truth and pleasing God, why do they continue to read and yet do nothing? —not even tell others.

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (I Corinthians 2:14)

“23For if any be a hearer of the Word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass [mirror / highly polished metal]: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the Perfect Law of Liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” (James 1)

The carnal mind — often led astray by blind pastors and Bible “experts” — frequently interprets important passages of Scripture and teach that they mean the very opposite of what they actually say. The Perfect Law of Liberty is NOT the “freedom to sin” — GOD FORBID! It is the freedom, by the Power of the Holy Spirit to NOT SIN.

“1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized [by the Holy Spirit] into Christ Jesus were baptized into His Death? 4Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism [of the Holy Spirit; of which water baptism is supposed to represent] into Death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the Glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His Death, we shall be also in the likeness of His Resurrection: 6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin* might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7For he that is dead is freed from sin.*” (Romans 6)

* Note clearly: the Law of God was not destroyed; and we are not free from the Law of God, but from sin! —IF truly regenerated by God’s Holy Spirit. This does not mean that a truly regenerated Christian never sins, but that he knows what sin is and detests and resists it. Instead, the majority of “Christians” take the “Nestea Plunge” into sin, daily; or like a Mountain Dew commercial, they ride their bikes off a jumping ramp into a lake of sin, while wildly waving their arms and legs and doing flips and pirouettes and twists, smiling with ecstacy and glee. Understand: If the Law had been abolished it would be impossible to sin; sin would not exist. No one would need to be saved from or repent of anything. Why then does the New Testament speak so much about sin, repentance, confessing sin to God, asking forgiveness, if sin is impossible; which it is, if there is no law. Why do “Christians” want to see how far they can stray from God and His Standard and hopefully still be accepted, rather than seeing how close they can get to God and become more like Christ...?

See my S.T.E.Commentary: The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans, 758pp., pb., 40.00 + P&H.

True Christianity is Doctrine. The Fear of God and true Love are demonstrated by obedience — obeying all that God commanded; not mere compliance as a slave or disgruntled employee or rebellious teenager, but the adoption of God’s Mind, Will, Morality as your own, knowing that His Way is the only way; and all others end in death. Christ, the Personification of Wisdom declares:

“But he that sinneth against Me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate Me love death.” (Proverbs 8:36)

Scripture also warns us:

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25)]

God is Immutable. God is True. Morality never changes. God commanded, “Be holy as I am Holy”. God’s Law is His Will, an extension of His Mind. The Standard of Holiness for God never changes. If the Standard of Holiness “changes” for us (which it did NOT, but which the majority of “Christians”, believe it did, believing the very opposite of what Christ Himself said, showing that they are not His sheep, since they know not and obey not His Voice, but follow the voice of strangers), but the Standard of Holiness for God does not change, then we cannot be holy as He is Holy! God does not give senseless Commands. It is not God who is confused.

This delusion / false doctrine / false philosophy / egocentric self-exaltation / self-empowerment / delusion of independence from God and delusion that self is in control of his own destiny / free will are methods that God uses for the wicked (most of whom consider themselves “good” — by their own standard, not by God’s) to “fill up the measure” of His Wrath and thereby, deserve the Judgment that He has planned for them. Again, humanists will “out” themselves by focusing on “how unfair” that they (who are not God) think that God’s Decrees and Commands are; rather than focusing on obeying and pleasing God so that they don’t have to experience the “business end” of His Wrath. “Every tree is known by its fruit.” The carnal mind / will opposes God’s Supremacy / Sovereignty / Determinism; and attempts to exalt itself above the Mind of God, which is the spirit of antichrist (II Thessalonians 2:4; II Corinthians 10:5; Romans 8:7,8).

Julian and Aldous Huxley were grandsons of the famous self-taught anatomist and biologist, “Darwin’s Bulldog”, Sir Thomas Huxley, who coined the term “agnostic”, to explain his own doubts — as the false religion of Empiricism and its over-valued Scientific Method replaced deductive logic and facts; and thus, replaced God in the minds of most “Christians”. Despite his own doubts and disbelief, he upbraided those who attacked the Bible and Christianity, and confessed and asserted that the Bible / Christianity is the only hope for society, morality, law and order. Yet because of his doubts concerning God’s existence or the trustworthiness of the Bible, his descendants became confirmed atheists. Similarly, Darwin expressed (back in a day when global travel was by ship, and precarious and uncertain) that those very people who hate and disparage Christianity, if on a ship at sea that sank, hope that the savage lands upon which the sea will hopefully thrust them, will be lands that were blessed with the civilizing effect of Christian missionaries (that is, back when Christianity actually had influence, before Christendom was paganized by absorbing pagans; the salt having lost its power; which now is impotent and worthless, and thus, trampled under foot).

Accepting and obeying Sound Doctrine (the Full Counsel of the Perfect and Unchanging Word of God) is not a matter of the intellect, but of the will. It is not an educational or mental problem, but a spiritual one. If God has not turned the will / mind, nothing will. The unregenerate mind, the carnal mind, rejects the things of God — and cannot receive them, and cannot be in submission to them (Romans 8:7,8). Thus, acceptance of Sound Doctrine (all based upon God’s Immutability and Absolute Sovereignty and Determinism) is a litmus test of regeneration and / or carnality / backsliding / heresy / apostacy (II Timothy 4:3,4). Anything less than believing the Absolute Sovereignty and Determinism of God, such as believing the fallacy of “free will”, is humanism.

[Again, see my book, Does God Repent...?]

The unregenerate mind, the carnal mind is at war with God and hates* God — because God is God and “self” is not! Ironically, or rather, hypocritically, every single individual (except those utterly ignorant concerning their own mind, or those who are dishonest), will have to admit that “if” he were God and created the universe, he would have ordered it in a way that he alone saw fit,** and he would expect his creatures to accept what he decreed and to obey. Such a Christian himself rebels against His Maker, whenever he thinks, “Well, if God did this or that... He would not be ‘fair’; or He would be ‘evil’, ‘not good’, ‘unloving’, etc.”, and those who think so, God pronounces a curse upon (Isaiah 45:9).

[* Though the carnal mind does not view it as hate; just a “difference of opinion” — not realizing that no creature has any intellectual or legal standing to have a difference of opinion with His Creator and Lord, God of the Universe.

** If a person is self-aware and honest, he will have to admit, that if he were God, if he ordered his universe any differently than things are now, he is a fool (which word in Scripture is an indictment of wickedness, not merely low I.Q.); since he thinks that he is mentally and morally superior to God Himself. God determined all for His Plan, His Drama, His Glory. His Creation did not simply “go bad”. God is not a crappy Creator. He is Omnipotent, Omniscienct, Perfect, and Immutable. Again, see, Does God Repent...? and my annotated edition of The Attributes of God.

From God’s perspective there are no coincidences, for He determines all as part of His Drama (see my book, Does God Repent...?). From man’s perspective, coincidences are a bit subjective as we see similarity, relation, pattern, etc. to those things that seem significant to us and our situation, whereas, we tend to overlook a plethora of data that we don’t think significant, or don’t even notice, because it is not on our radar as something important, until something in our life makes us shockingly aware of it. The Law of Statistics and Probabilities is imperfect, but helpful. Man cannot know all of the factors to determine the exact likelihood of something happening; but based upon his information of mathematics and physics and based upon the data that he does have, he can come close to determining the probability of an event (unless unforseen factors overrule his data). Based upon all that, Evolution is impossible. But for those who understand God, there is nothing that is chance or random; God is not a mere spectator in His Universe, but has planned the entire drama, every single electron in every single atom that comprises all energy and matter, and their exact interaction with each other on both the macro and micro scale.]

The carnal mind is irrational; it is egotistically self-destructive. It rejects reality unless that reality is what it wants reality to be; hypocritically demanding for others to accept and obey what he thinks reality should be, while rejecting what they think it should be. The majority of Christians and atheists alike are in unimpeachable agreement that each individual has “free will” — while most demand all others to accept only his will. In reality, man’s (delusion of) free will is actually like Henry Ford’s advertisement of his early motor cars: “You can have it in any color that you want as long as the color is black.” This, in essence, is the Sovereignty of God and man’s problem with “morality” and man’s delusion of “free will”. Morality is not determined by the “smartest” person; nor by the richest person; nor by the strongest person; nor by “majority vote”; neither is it determined by whatever the individual majority just happen to do. “Rules” / “laws” and “morality” are not necessarily synonyms. Morality is established by the Creator and Lord; which, again, is why the majority reject Him, and prefer to believe the delusion that He does not exist. Random chaos does not establish Natural Law and it does not establish morality; neither does a superstition, which is what the “faith” of most “Christians” is. Most “Christians” believe in an irrational humanistic mystical superstition based upon their “feelings” and what they want reality to be or what they think reality is or should be, based upon what their polluted minds think is “fair”. Their “religion” is experientially based; whereas Christianity is revelationally based — and not based upon the “revelations”, alleged dreams or “visions” subjective to any individual, but based upon the Doctrine of the unimpeachable Revealed Word of God.

Tell me, when an atheist is in trouble, does he cry out...?

“Please, Random chaos... help me...!”

When a New Ager is in trouble, does he cry out...?

“Please, Universe... help me...!”

Asking non-existent, impersonal random chaos or the scattered energy of the universe to order events in a specific way in your life to help or please you is anti-intellectual. Do they think that their local electric company’s substation is a “Temple”...? It has concentrated energy... far-more usable than the “universe” in general; the universe having disjointed, impersonal energy, often millions of light years away in every direction. Do such persons not know the expanse of the universe, the speed of light, and what a light year is...? Tell me, does the universe all have to agree together before it can help you? Is the universe divided? Would that not be chaos? How can chaos help you? What if part of the universe battles against the part of the universe trying to help you? If the cosmic energy of the universe has to agree, and take a vote, how long would that take (considering the speed of light and the length of a light year)...? Do such people ever actually think...? Would such individuals also hire an idiot who doesn’t even know simple math to be their accountant to balance their books or to plot their upcoming trip to the moon...?

When an atheist / New Ager narrowly escapes death or has a close call with an accident, does he say...?

“Thank random chaos / universe... —that was a close call!”

Actually, sadly, I saw an episode of one of those out-in-the-woods surival reality shows (filmed in England, which was a much shorter version of “Survivor” with Bear Grylls, if I remember correctly), and one ignorant women who was suffering the hardships of not being in luxury was sitting having a pity party and she was actually crying and crying out under the stars at night, “Universe, please help me”.

That makes as much sense as praying to the moon, particles of dust, a sun beam, a rock, scattered atoms, the fog, or the steam coming from your tea kettle — and thinking that any of those things have awareness, let alone ability, let alone inclination or concern to help you, is delusion. Most individuals are wicked, though they imagine themselves to be “good” (irrationally based on their own self-decree of what “good” is; as if their whim establishes reality). If they majority are good as they think why is there such evil in the world?

Furthermore... what makes such individuals think that even if “the universe” (which is not a living organism, which does not have individuality or cognition or intelligence) or any pagan god, or the moon, or a pile of rocks “could” help them, that it actually “would” help them? What makes them think that the universe, the moon, a rock, or a pagan god is “good” or “cares”...? What makes them think that the universe, the moon, a rock, or a pagan god (if it existed and had personality) “likes” them or “cares about” them? Whence originate such altruistic Peter Pan naïveté and fantasies? As mythology testifies, pagan gods could be good or evil. If the god to whom they pray is “evil”, why would such a god help them? Furthermore, if the god to whom they pray is “evil”, would that evil god not pretend to be good, to deceive the person, to better abuse him? Do such individuals who pray to some god that they do not even know really expect an evil god to be honest?

On the other hand, if the pagan god to whom they pray is “good” — and that “good” pagan god knows the wickedness of the heart, mind, and life of the one praying, why on Earth would the god want to help him? Someone who helps wicked people is not himself good, but terribly confused: for doing so ignores and blurs the difference between good and evil. Good that helps evil is not good and is itself evil.

The deluded person (who thinks reality magically changes to what he wants it to be) may reply, “The god should answer my prayers and help me because I worship him”. Well, did such a person ever think that the god does NOT want his worship? Why would a good god want the worship of a wicked person? How can you worship some god whom you don’t know? when you don’t know what he wants and when you don’t even know if he is good or evil? How do you know that your unknown god is male or female — or neither? How then can you refer to such a god? If you don’t know the god you don’t know the god’s name. If you don’t know the god or know if the god is male or female, you cannot refer to the god as “he”, or “she”; and you cannot refer to the god as “they” (because a singular entity cannot be a “they”). Referring to such a god as an “it” would seem a bit impersonal and insulting.

If you think that you are “good” (based upon your own delusional standards) why would you pray to an evil god? If you know nothing about the god, how do you know if it is good; or if it is evil pretending to be good? If you are such a skilled discerner of things that you know nothing about it seems that the god should be worshipping you; which, in reality, is what it is when individuals think that the god should do what they want the god to do for them, when they have done nothing to deserve it, or when they themselves invent what it is that the god should accept from them. If you met someone from an alien race / culture, if he gave you a piece of chewed up bubble gum, would you give him a gold coin or a diamond? Just because he gives you what he was willing to offer you, does that mean you have to give him what he wants. How can you expect a god to accept and be delighted in your worship, since the manner in which you worship is entirely of your own notions, and not what the god actually likes or wants — since you know nothing about him? Did you ever think for a moment that what you gave him was offensive? How would you like it if someone served you a plate of fresh dog feces for a meal? Why then do such deluded individuals think that the god, whom they know nothing about, likes or wants what the sinful deluded human thinks is appropriate? Do you think that the god should simply accept whatever you give to him and in return give you everything that you want? Who then is the god and who is the worshipper? Does the individual who worships “the universe” or moon or false god actually think that the universe or the false god is then obligated to act as a magic genie and grant their every wish and demand, simply because they “worshipped” the god in a manner after their own notions, and what was convenient to them? Again, maybe the god does not want their worship. Do they think that their “god” or the universe is as irrational as they are? and that their “god” or the universe has such “low standards” as they do? What makes them think that their “god” or the universe (if it existed as a god) would not reply? —

“You give me a bad name. No god wants a wicked, worthless fool like you to worship him. Take your insulting trinkets elsewhere. Do you think that we gods are legally bound and obligated to do what you want, just because you think that you worship us by doing things on your own terms? Produce the contract. I never introduced myself to you or gave you any promises. Better yet. Stop worshipping me. Go away. Worship something else; anything else. Find a nice rock. I don’t like you. I don’t care about you. Loose my phone number. Don’t call me; I won’t answer or return the call.”

Scripture tells us

“There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.” (Isaiah 48:22; 57:21)

There is no peace for them, because there is no hope for them. There is only hope for the Elect of God’s people whom the Holy Spirit regenerates to be convicted of sin, repent, confess, Christ, and then “go and sin no more”; meditating upon the Scriptures day and night, to learn what God requires — and then doing it.

[“To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17) Sinful things are still sin to those who don’t know such things are sin. Christ taught,

“47And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” (Luke 12)

Why is the ignorant servant beaten...? — because it is the DUTY of a servant / child / wife to know the master’s / father’s / husband’s will...! God did not put us here on Earth as a “Plan-your-own-vacation, do-your-own-thing, sight-seeing cruise”. If He did, I got on the wrong boat and want a refund...!]

That is the true Christian life (knowing and doing what God commanded); which few “Christians” live. They reject the Old Testament and ignore much of the the New (in accordance with what I have called for over 3 decades “Smorgasbord Theology”); and they seek after whichever spiritual guru / preacher will tell them what they want to hear; according to “Touched By An Angel”, theology: “God loves you just the way you are; no need to change a thing”.

Without Faith it is impossible to please God. Faith is not a mysterious “good feeling” or a fantasy or wishing well. Faith is belief in reality: the facts / Doctrine of the Word of God — which faith seizes the individual believer to act upon that faith; wherein the individual believer believes and obeys and seeks to please God, not self.

“5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. 7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” (Proverbs 3)

“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.” (Proverbs 12:15)

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25)

“All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.” (Proverbs 16:2)

“Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.” (Proverbs 21:2)

“There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.” (Proverbs 30:12)

“Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:21)

The majority of individuals in the modern world irrationally believe that their subjective will power determines reality. Even more irrationally, they anti-intellectually imagine that everyone is equal, and all religions are equal, and all political systems are equal (though hypocritically rejecting those upon which Christendom was established). Tell me, how can reality be the way that 7 billion individuals want it to be...? How can any, let alone an Immutable God be the way that 7 billion individuals imagine Him to be...? This would be like trying to watch the t.v. with 7 billion different people fighting over the remote control, constantly changing the channel (to any one of 7 billion different channels) every half-second and continually raising or lowering the volume as they desired. That would be like being on a psychedelic drug trip. That is Hinduism (except each stays on his on channel). That is not Christianity. God alone determines reality, Morality, and Doctrine. It is as He says it is and it is our DUTY to conform to Him. Those who believe otherwise are Anti-God / Anti-Christ.

The average “Christian” is selfish, ego-centric, double minded, irrational, anti-intellectual, dishonest, and hypocritical, who thinks that the world should change to suit him. Imagine someone whose accountant tells him that he has a surplus of $100,000 in his bank account...! The individual is ecstatic and does handsprings and backflips. But imagine that same person whose accountant tells him, “You are $100,000 in debt”. Now, the individual grumbles, “I don’t believe in mathematics. Mathematics is not fair. I hate mathematics!” That sounds silly, but that is exactly what “Christians” do; and it is what the average nonchristian does also. It is the Welfare Mentality with an irrational sense of “entitlement”. I have asked for a decade (though like most of my questions, no one ever answers): “Why do individuals think that they have a ‘right’ to inherit their ancestors’ wealth but not their debt?” This is what Christians do when they are accept the portions of Scripture that they like, but reject those that they don’t like.

Some “Christians” are even under such Strong Delusion that they vocalize sentiments like, “I refuse to believe in / would not worship a God Who hates, punishes, or rejects anyone” or “if He demanded [this or that]”. Such do not understand the concept of GOD [Creator, LORD, SOVEREIGN, MASTER, OWNER]. Someone I know told me that once in his town he had struck up a conversation with a person on the street, as they were both waiting on someone. It turns out that this other “gentleman” (which term I use loosely) was an “elder” of a church; and when the person I know had steered the conversation toward God, this “elder” actually said, “I hate the God of the Old Testament”...! Guess what...! He probably hates you too! —which is why you have such blasphemous thoughts you shamelessly share; which is why you are an “elder” in a “Christian” church although you do not even know God! The God of the New Testament is the very same unchanged God of the Old Testament. God is the same: yesterday, today, and forever. What part of “Immutable” don’t you understand? “I am Yahweh and I change not: Therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6) This is our hope: because God is not a liar, a Covenant breaker or a Promise breaker; nor is He fickle, whimsical, prone to forgetfulness or confusion. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from Above, and cometh down from the Father of Lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” (James 1:17)

I met someone 32 years ago, who, after I briefly epxressed about what the Bible said about this or that, he actually said, “Well, I am a God-fearin’ man, but I’ve never been much for doing what the Bible says”. Such a person does not have a clue what “God fearing” means; it is a mere expression that he picked up somewhere in his life and he liked the sound of it. As I learned more about him, he would smoke pot while grading tobacco in his barn, then be in the mood for some “Gospel” music; he used the f-word liberally, was sexually loose, got into brawls, had his driving license revoked for too many DUIs (and then drove his farm tractor to town for groceries), lived as he pleased, probably did not go to church except for Christmas, Easter, and a wedding or a funeral, probably never read the Bible... but he was a “God-fearin’ man”.

I was in a conversation in the house of a neighbor once, 25-some years ago. He had a Bible on his shelf and he probably considered himself a Christian. After my having casually interjected the Scriptures into any conversation concerning any area of life that we were discussing, he stopped the conversation and said, “You mean that you live every area of your life by what the Bible says?” I was dumbfounded. It was as if someone walking around on planet Earth, bewildered, asked me, “What, you mean you breathe air...?” Do people not know what a Christian is? Well, sadly, no, they do not; and that is why Christendom has been destroyed; and why they shall have a rude awakening once their spirit is separated from their body.

Some deluded individuals even believe in the Norse gods, Odin, Thor, etc.; or the Roman gods, Jupiter (Jove), Mars, etc.; or the Greek gods Zeus, Apollo, etc.; or any one or more of a plethora of Asiatic or other gods. Some may worship “mother” Earth, the sun, moon, stars or planets (as the Romans and Babylonians once did), a comet, the “universe”, animals, rocks, trees, water, the wind, fire, or a myriad of inanimate, invisible, or imaginary things. Scripture also speaks of an abominable god — and it is hard to believe why anyone would have worshipped it (but false gods are delusions given by demons, and like evil people in the world who corrupt the morals of others, they drag them down into the vilest and most perverse filth possible).

“And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said [of Jesus], ‘He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils [demons] casteth He out devils [demons].” (Mark 3:22)

The wicked Scribes from Jerusalem, who travelled there (possibly being in conspiracy with the Pharisees and Herodians, for the intention of finding some cause to falsely accuse Him or entrap Him) here outright insult Jesus (and blaspheme the Holy Spirit). For some reason the translators mistranslated the name of the pagan god. The Greek word in the New Testament text is #954 Beelzeboul (beh-el-zeb-ool), “lord of dung”; but they translated it Beelzebub, which word is a rendering of the Aramaic word (used in the Old Testament, not in the New Testament; such as in II Kings 1:2) #1176 Baalzebub (bah-al-zeb-oob) “lord of the fly” (a Philistine deity); on which the Greek word that the scribes used, is a parody. The two, clearly, are related: for where there is dung there are flies — but what a perverse mind it would take to serve such a god...!

So, it all boils down to this: Why would anyone worship Norse, Greek, Roman, or other god, a superstition, an unknown spirit, the sky, a planet, the moon, the “universe”, an animal, a rock, what they think is a U.F.O., etc. ...? The answer is simple; and is basically the same as why humanists or atheists believe in no God; or why humanists who deludedly think that they are “Christians” (“non-doctrinal” or otherwise) believe as they do. The reason individuals may believe in Norse gods, or worship the moon, a rock, an unknown god, the “universe” etc., is because those gods don’t exist (they are superstitions or a combination of actual history corrupted into legend and mythology, combined with man’s own wickedness), and because they did not give to them a Bible / Laws / a Moral Code — and they do not make any demands upon their followers! Everything is based upon the individual’s imagination, mood, will, desires, lusts. Many don’t want to believe that we are alone in the universe — but they reject the only One God; because they want to be in charge. Why are they so irrational? (Assuming that they work and are not on Welfare) Did their boss hire, and does their boss pay them to do “whatever they want” to do? Many humanists (who think that they are “Christians”) want to appear “spiritual” (for whatever reason), but then live as if God is supposed to bow down to, worship, obey, and conform to them; or simply accept whatever they do and smile. Jesus said,

“7Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias [Isaiah] prophesy of you, saying, 8‘This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me. 9But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men’.” (Matthew 15)

Such reject God’s Word and make up their own “religion” and blasphemously call it “Christianity”. Such infiltrate Christianity and corrupt it. They shall answer for it.


Alexander Pope wrote his poem, An Essay on Criticism (1711), in scathing castigation of the corrupt literary world. Below, the famous phrase that I quoted is offered in context (Lines 613-633):

“Such shameless bards we have; and yet ‘tis true,
There are as mad, abandon’d critics too.
The bookful blockhead, ignorantly read,
With loads of learned lumber in his head,
With his own tongue still edifies his ears,
And always list’ning to himself appears.
All books he reads, and all he reads assails,
From Dryden’s Fables down to Durfey’s Tales.
With him, most authors steal their works, or buy;
Garth did not write his own Dispensary.
Name a new play, and he’s the poet’s friend,
Nay show’d his faults—but when would poets mend?
No place so sacred from such fops is barr’d,
Nor is Paul’s church more safe than Paul’s churchyard:
Nay, fly to altars; there they'll talk you dead:
For fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
Distrustful sense with modest caution speaks;
It still looks home, and short excursions makes;
But rattling nonsense in full volleys breaks;
And never shock’d, and never turn’d aside,
Bursts out, resistless, with a thund’ring tide.”

[This poem by Pope is also the source of at 2 other well-known expressions that have entered academia and common speech due to Pope’s eloquence: “To err is human, to forgive divine” and “a little learning is a dang’rous thing.”]
