This is in rebuttal to the April 12 column, "'God's not Dead'? Yes, people deserve to hear from all sides."|
Nowhere in the Bible do I find that Stephen was stoned for picking up sticks. He was stoned for standing up for his belief in Christ. And where does it say "by God's prompting" children were torn apart by bears?
It is true that what you teach a child when he is young is going to stay with him throughout his life. He will believe a donkey talked in Numbers 22:21-36 because God said it. If you've ever read an autobiography of someone, did you doubt what it said about that person?
Where does the Bible say the universe is 6,000 years old? If you don't believe the moon has its own light, what do you see when you look up in the sky?
Christians hold onto their beliefs knowing they are true from the beginning of time. We don't change our minds as the scientists do when they are proven wrong.
Because the world that God made is so magnificent, we cannot always understand or explain it. Religion says, "I don't know everything, let's go to the Bible, ask God and find out." If we believe that Jesus died for our sins and in three days became alive again, we can ask Him any questions we have when we see Him in heaven.
It is much easier living for the world than living with Christ in your life but it is a much more peaceful, loving, joyful and wonderful way to live.
