Truth V’s Error

JCC 04.10.09 am

2 Corinthians 10:3–5: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”

What you believe about God will determine your worldview on life

Your view of Him automatically has more far-reaching consequences than anything else in your belief system

A wrong view of God leads to a wrong view of yourself

What you think of God will automatically determine how you think about everything else:

· How you prioritize values

· How you determine right and wrong

· What you think of your place in the universe

· How you behave

· Your thoughts of an afterlife

The same principle is as true for atheist, the nominal Christian and the born again believer

Let’s view the atheist:

The accidental universe

What good is there in an accidental universe with no Lawgiver and no Judge?

There’s no god

One who rejects God has refused the foundation for morality, accountability, true spirituality, and the necessary characteristic between what’s good and evil

The atheist’s private life will inevitably become a living demonstration of their evil and unbelief

Where there is no boundary, there is room for an ‘anything goes’ mentality

They are answerable to none but themselves

This is corrupting through to our children

Ps 14:1 Ps 53:1 & the fool has said in his heart, [There is] no God. They are corrupt; they have done abominable works, [there is] none that does good.

The foolish are mentioned biblically:

Ps 74:18 …. the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.

Prov 10:14 Wise [men] lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish [is] near destruction.

Matt 7 the builders

Matt 25 the virgins

Many turn to science to disprove God’s reality, yet Rom 1 tells us that all creation is a witness to his existence

Those in unbelief say, ‘How shall I know that this true?’

I AM THAT I AM is the only grounds for true faith

The Nominal Christian

2 Tim 3:5 They are the ones with a form of godliness, but deny the power

Hypocrisy has potentially more disturbing implications than outright atheism because of its deceptiveness

A living pretence

Jesus’ campaign against hypocrisy is a prominent, if not dominant, emphasis in all four gospels

Jesus’ harshest words were reserved for institutionalized religious hypocrisy of his day

They have the ludicrousness and arrogance to call Christ Lord with the lips while utterly defy Him with their life

They go to church, sing, pray, but revert back to their own selfish way of living once outside the doors

Religiousness with no righteousness

Outward show, but no inner change

A life improved, but never transformed

They believe God is there to help them get ahead in the world

To give them a ‘get out of hell’ card

Christianity revolves around ‘feelings and emotions’

When troubles come, they run anywhere and to anyone other than Christ Himself
