The Bible says, "There is no God"...

Don't get too excited my biblically ignorant atheist friends...actually, in context, this is how it reads, "The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God.' They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good." Psalm 14:1. Today is April Fools Day or as I like to call it, National Atheist Day. Actually, I will be extending this day for this first week of April, and declare it National Atheist Week by posting blogs about "The fools..." The Bible is not name-calling here, but describing what Atheists really are. And what is that? That atheists are mentally dull. By rejecting God, atheists are reduced to absurdity in their reasoning because they cannot make sense out of the world in which they live; which includes morality, rationality, science, human dignity, and more. Atheists refuse to take what is obvious to everybody and draw out the conclusions and worship Him. Romans Chapter 1:18-22 confirms this because the atheists refuse to acknowledge God, their reasoning becomes futile. In this next week, I will be directing you to great articles about the foolishness of atheism and the arguments they love to press and...avoid.

Today's great article is entitled, "Why Atheism Fails: The Four Big Bangs", by Frank Pastore,
Christian talk show radio host and former Major League Baseball pitcher.

Here are his Four Big Bangs:
  1. The Cosmological (the universe “just popped” into existence out of nothingness).
  2. The Biological (life “just popped” into existence out of a dead thing)
  3. The Psychological (mind “just popped” into existence out of a brain)
  4. and the Moral (morality “just popped” into existence out of amorality).
Now, watch how atheist borrow from the Christian worldview to raise a moral argument by commenting to this week's posts. I pray in contrast, that they come to the saving knowledge of the Saviour of their souls, Jesus Christ!

"Bob, my answer is...ABORTION"


With the recent "milestone", as the NY Times calls it, of 4000 U.S. deaths of our beloved soldiers in IRAQ, I wanted to take this opportunity to make the Blogger Nation aware of the hypocrisy living within the Political Left regarding the war. By no means am I downplaying this tragic death toll of American Soldiers in IRAQ. One American loss in any war is one too many. My brother is a Veteran who is against the war, and my nephew, his son, served in IRAQ for two years, is for the war. He is now home. He wishes he could go back and help his fellow "brothers in the war" to finish the job. However, to say that 4000 American deaths is an atrocity and on the other hand sweep under the carpet 1.2 million American deaths each year is extremely wicked! The hypocrisy is that Liberals cry and moan about the deaths of Americans in other countries, but fail to see American Holocaust going on in their own backyard.

Here are some Abortion facts;
  • Total number of abortions in the U.S. since 1973: 48 million +
  • Abortions per year: 1,200,000
  • Abortions per day: 3,288
  • Abortions per hour: 137
  • 9 abortions every 4 minutes
  • 1 abortion every 26 seconds
This is barbaric and is happening right under our noses.

American Vison's President, Gary DeMar has posted on his website an excellent series on "The Resurrection of Christ; Hoax or History?" Here are the topics he's covering;
  • Part 1 (March 14): Introduction and Scriptural account
  • Part 2 (March 19): Refuting poorly constructed theories concocted to explain away the resurrection
    • The Theft Theory (The Jews or Romans stole the body)
    • The Wrong Tomb Theory
    • The Legend Theory
  • Part 3 (March 20): Refuting poorly constructed theories concocted to explain away the resurrection continued...
    • The Swoon Theory (Jesus never actually died and was simply resuscitated.)
    • The Hallucination Theory (The people who claimed to be witnesses of Christ's resurrection simply had hallucinations.)
    • The "Contradictory Gospel Accounts" Theory
  • Part 4 (March 21): How the Resurrection of Jesus Christ Changed the World (link not available yet as of 3/20/08).
I encourage you to visit and read it. Naturalist may not find the above evidences to the Resurrection of Christ to their liking, however, just because they don't like it, doesn't mean it's not true.

"Should schools teach abstinence?"

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released a study today stating that one in four teen girls in the U.S. has a sexually transmitted infection. That's approximately over 3 million teenage girls in the US. What's worse is that side effects of STI are not known until it's too late...and many teen girls won't even know they are carriers of such disease.

Of course, the "Abstinence Only" promoters are not only asked to go to the back of the bus, but nowadays, are not even allowed on the bus.

I pondered, "What is causing this drastic rise in sexual activity with our teen girls?" There are many factors that could be responsible for this, fatherless homes, uneducated about risks of sexually transmitted diseases, and others. However, I want to focus on one; Today's choice of entertainment for our youth. Specifically, music. I went to Billboards Singles Chart Top 10 website. I've listed three of the top 10 songs below with some of their lyrics:

"If you didn’t know, you’re the only thing that’s on my mind
Cuz the way I'm staring miss you got me wantin to give it to you all night."
—Lyrics: Usher - Love In This Club lyrics

"Hey lil mama, ooh you're a stunner
Hot little figure, yes you a winner, and
I'm so glad to be yours." Chris Brown - With You lyrics

"Hey, dime piece girl turned to Internet hottie
Little mama got that top model body." Flo Rida Elevator Lyrics
Featuring: Timbaland Lyrics

Many of these songs make Prince's "Little Red Corvette" sound like a children's story time book. Promiscuity abounds is an understatement.

Should parents without teaching credentials be allowed to homeschool their children?

A state appeals court on 2/29/08 has decided California parents without teaching credentials do not have a right to home-school their children. I'm not a lawyer, but as I understand it, this ruling will go into effect 30 days after the decision. And I doubt that it will be enforced. The homeschool community, which I am part of, will not allow this biased decision to go into law without a fight. Saying that a parent needs to hold a teaching credential is a red herring. It's a militant way for the education mafia to take thought control of a captive audience....OUR KIDS! Again, the strong secularist arm uses the liberal court system and not by a vote of the people to get what they want.

I don't understand it. A rich country like the USA has some of the highest dropout rates of high school students and high literacy rates. Some HS graduates can't even read or fill out an job application or write a blog ;) and they were taught by credentialed teachers? Obviously, there's something bigger going on here. Stay tuned.

"How do you intend to answer the problem of good in a world without God?"

Today, I saw this interesting article online entitled, "The problem of good almost insoluble for the atheist." In that article reads the following quote,
"I am offering a counter-question to the atheists. You show me a world without a Creator; then, you also need to provide grounds for the existence of goodness in this world. How do you intend to answer the problem of good in a world without God?"

I think it's a great question. The article was written by Greg Cootsona, an associate pastor of discipleship at Bidwell Presbyterian Church.

To add, last week, my Sophomore son brought home a magazine entitled, "Skeptical Inquirer March/April 2007" from his public high school chemistry class. He said, "Dad, look what your tax dollars are buying." Which I found surprisingly funny. So, the next day, I read through most of the articles. However, one caught my eye more than the others. It's was an article written by Daniel C. Dennent entitled, "Thank Goodness!" Briefly, his whole article was about how he had to undergo harrowing emergency heart surgery and how he rejoiced at his successful surgery by "Thanking Goodness" instead of thanking God. Then I said to myself, "Thank Goodness?" Could a naturalists, a materialist be thanking something unnatural? Something immaterial? To help me answer these questions, I turned to my favorite online radio show, Unchained Radio on Saturday (3/02/08). I called into the show and asked Pastor Gene, the same question posed above by the Presbyterian pastor, "How does an atheist account for the problem of good in this world according to their worldview?"

To hear the show and Pastor Gene's brilliant refutation of Dr. Dennet's problem of "Thanking Goodness", click here. My question is approx. 29 min into the show.

Oh, and to add, Skeptical Inquirer, at least that edition my son brought home to read, really does confirm what the Apostle Paul says in Romans 1:18-25 . Not only that, Skeptical Inquirer is as captivating as a public school bathroom.
