If Jesus Never Came. part 1 by Anthony Smith

2 Peter 2:4-2:11

If Jesus Never Came. part 1. A look at, Athiest, Agnostice, Humanist and Freethinkers. There are many people that call themselves atheist, to me an atheist is an agnostic without a clue. I believe if we took a poll on atheist from ever major war, we would find out many Atheist were turned into Agnostics and Agnostics were turned into believers. An atheist is; One who disbelieves or deniesrepparttar existence of God or gods. An agnostic is;One who believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God. One who is skeptical aboutrepparttar 141363 existence of God but does not profess true atheism. Why are Athiest, Agnostice, Humanist, Freethinkers andrepparttar 141364 like so preoccupied about proveing that God and His Son Jesus dont exist? Is there something inrepparttar 141365 Bible that scares them so much that we have become a threat to them? It doesnt take much not to believe in something, but it takes all to believe in God. Christianity, in mankind, is not perfect by any means. The Apostil Paul stated, “Let us go on to perfection...”Heb 6:1. We disagree many times over many subjects but we all have come torepparttar 141366 agreement that we can all disagree. I think that is pretty civil of us, dont you? Well lets put it this way, If God didnt exist then neither would, Athiest, Agnostice, Humanist or Freethinkers. Now lets take a look atrepparttar 141367 world as If Jesus Never Came. An atheist states that God or gods dont exist, this is not entirelyrepparttar 141368 truth on their part. An Atheist doesnt believe inrepparttar 141369 Theory of Darwin so that makes him a believer in a higher power. They believe, or are interested, in spirituallity and sense spirituallity is a religious term they lie to themselves. So we will look at it from that point of view. The question that these people should be asking is “Who created religion?” Athieism, Agnosticeism, Humanism or Freethinkers are terms that constitute a religion. Religion is actually; Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor ofrepparttar 141370 universe. A personal or institutionalized system grounded in such belief and worship. The life or condition of a person in a religious order. A set of beliefs, values, and practices based onrepparttar 141371 teachings of a spiritual leader. A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion. Gen 1:1 Inrepparttar 141372 beginning God createdrepparttar 141373 heaven andrepparttar 141374 earth. In this statementrepparttar 141375 Bible speaks not a word about religion or worship, you would be, in fact, hard pressed to find any mention of these subjects untill Chapter 4. A covenant relationship didnt arrive untill chapter 6. Again religion is still not mentioned, so what was God doing with man? He was making a pact, a promise and a covenant, not religion. Religion came into effect begining in chapter 10 with Nimrod. The Hebrew name Nimrod means "let us rebel," given by his contemporaries to Nimrod as one who ever had in his mouth such words to stir up his band to rebellion. Nimrod subvertedrepparttar 141376 existing patriarchal order of society by setting up a chieftainship based on personal valor and maintained by aggression. [Fausset] This is an athesist comment; ”I am interested in spirituality, and I have a general interest inrepparttar 141377 history of Christianity andrepparttar 141378 bible. I find most ofrepparttar 141379 active Christians I meet to be nice people, and I am fascinated by how they twist and avoidrepparttar 141380 truth in order to claimrepparttar 141381 Bible is somehow holy. I also see it mis-used often in Politics, and  I always urge people to readrepparttar 141382 bible, line for line, so in that respect we haverepparttar 141383 same goals. I would love for bible reading to be compulsury in public schools, line for line, without Christian spin.” Most athesist fall underrepparttar 141384 catigory in religionism; A state of often extreme religious ardour; {Fiery intensity of feeling.} Morris notes, "The essential identity ofrepparttar 141385 various gods and goddesses of Rome, Greece, India, Egypt, and other nations withrepparttar 141386 original pantheon ofrepparttar 141387 Babylonians is well established. [In fact], Nimrod himself was apparently later deified asrepparttar 141388 chief god (’Merodach’ or ’Marduk’) of Babylon.(Rom. 1:23)And changedrepparttar 141389 glory ofrepparttar 141390 uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Babylon meansrepparttar 141391 “Gate of God.” The citizens of Babylon had rejectedrepparttar 141392 knowledge ofrepparttar 141393 true God. Therefore, we should expectrepparttar 141394 creation of a false religion as part of their dubious cultural achievements. Again,repparttar 141395 Bible speaks of "mystery Babylon," that is, ofrepparttar 141396 reality symbolized byrepparttar 141397 earthly city, saying that it is "the mother of prostitutes and ofrepparttar 141398 abominations ofrepparttar 141399 earth" (Rev. 17:5). This refers, as dorepparttar 141400 ideas of prostitution and abomination throughoutrepparttar 141401 Bible, to false religion.Turn to any book on astrology and you will find that it wasrepparttar 141402 Chaldeans (another name forrepparttar 141403 inhabitants of Babylon) who first developedrepparttar 141404 zodiac by dividingrepparttar 141405 sky into sections and giving meanings to each onrepparttar 141406 basis ofrepparttar 141407 stars that are found there. A person’s destiny is said to be determined by whatever section or "sign"he is born under. [THE TOWER OF BABEL AND THE CONFUSION OF LANGUAGES] by Lambert Dolphin

Now Faith

Written by Rev.A.R.Smith

Hebrews 11:1-11:23 Now Faith is, by Rev A.R. Smith Hebrews 11:1, Now faith is,repparttar substance of things hoped for,repparttar 141362 evedence of things not seen. Introduction; We see many people expecting things to happen tomorrow. I hear it every day when I speek to frends, loved ones and even enemyes. They always say, Well maby tomorrow things will get better, or maby tomorrow or next week, Ill start going to church. And i always add, well what if tomorrow never comes? Where will your soul be for eterniety? Think about it. I. What does Hebrews say about faith? Now faith is, Lets break it down so we can understand it a little better. What Paul was saying here isrepparttar 141363 same thing, Jesus told Mary and Martha. John 11:32, Then Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying unto Him, Lord if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. Isnt thatrepparttar 141364 way some christians are, they try to put blame on everything not knowing that whatever happens to us as believers may just berepparttar 141365 will of God. As you see here, Mary had faith for yesterday, she didnt have,Now Faith.She believed if Jesus had been there yesterday, Her brother, would not have died. She had seen many wonders preformed by Jesus and at this time, along with everyone else, that knew Jesus,they were walking by sight, and not by Faith.We see this alot in scripture and in our daily lives. Christians are sitting back waiteing forrepparttar 141366 Rapture and doing nothing today, to add to their own faith. being sick in body and spirit, not knowing where to turn, not knowing how to survive. Look at John verse 37, And some of them said, Could not this man, which openedrepparttar 141367 eyes ofrepparttar 141368 blind, have caused that even this man should not have died? Walking by sight and not by faith. How many wonders does Jesus hafe to do before we believe. The Bible states, that, We can do all things throu Christ Jesus, who strengthens Me. Thats Now Faith,. I can, I Can, I can do all things, not yesterday, not tomorrow, but NOW. We all have been given a measure of Faith byrepparttar 141369 Holy Spirit, but what about Faith for today? Where does it come from? It comes fromrepparttar 141370 same Spirit. Now Faith is,What is it? Its a substance, Strongs Dictionary declaires that ,A substance is, 1. a property. 2. A possession. 3. A virtue. 4. a wealth. So if we use this description, Now Faith is a virtue, a desire,a possession ,a substance, we can hold onto.
