Researchers Find a Hidden Cost to the Internet
Proverbs 18:24
"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother."
Have you been on the internet lately? If so, it may be costing you more than you think. That's the suggestion of a study done by researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. The study...

Atheists should thank God for His patience!

If you're not already a member of the Creation Moments Facebook group, you're missing out on some great discussions! For instance, teacher April Schulthies recently shared some thought-provoking comments on Richard Dawkins and other atheistic evolutionists who find great pleasure in attacking God. Check it out ... then visit our Facebook group to see a whole lot more!
***************
Atheists attack the one true living God as vicious and evil without even bothering to find out that He's the defense of the weak and the downtrodden. Dawkins knows very well that his followers are too lazy to do their research. His God Delusion book describes the God of the Bible as the worst monster to hit the universe. In an interview I saw, Dawkins relished reading this diatribe against Jesus, but when he was asked if he wanted to comment on any of the other "gods" of any of the world's religions, he dismissed them out of hand.

Why, I ask, would Dawkins go after the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ, but have no interest in attacking any other so-called "gods" if he didn't know exactly what he was doing?

Am I saying that Dawkins knows in his heart that Jesus Christ is the one true living God? You bet. It's obvious, because Jesus is his only target.

Dawkins rips apart the God of the Bible every chance he gets, calling him a blood-thirsty villain. Here's one example:

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

This statement exploits people's ignorance. Anyone who has read the Bible knows that the Lord God of Israel is meek and lowly, the hope of the helpless, a father to the fatherless, a defender of the defenseless. God is no respecter of persons. He is a shield to those who place their trust in him. He will, it is true, remove his support from the wicked if they refuse to repent, but what else would you expect from a just God?

It's unbelievable what you see on these evolutionist blogs. And the people evidently believe their own diatribe. If Jesus really was in the smallest particle the unmerciful God they make him out to be, the earth would have long ago opened up and swallowed them alive, just to wipe out the ignominy of such ingratitude and hatred.

Truly the Lord is good to even those who are evil, giving them a chance to mend their ways. Otherwise, the evolutionists I've encountered in blogs would not be around to blaspheme and spread lies.

The tender mercies of the Lord are great, but many are the thankless who don't even acknowledge it. Far from being a "capriciously malevolent bully," the Lord is full of goodness and mercy. Far from being "petty" and "unjust," the Lord is gracious, longsuffering, and full of compassion. Far from being "racist," the Lord is no respecter of persons.

The Lord defends the weak, but he will not justify the wicked. It's no wonder the evolutionists love to slander him.

"He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." (Deut. 32:4)

"The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground." (Psalm 147:6)

"The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel." (Isa. 29:19)

America of all nations should express gratitude for her deliverance from bondage. Time and again, America has appealed to the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ, for aid, and received divine assistance. Now with the wave of secularism threatening to drown out the voices of the past that honored the Lord, we are sinking into an abyss of darkness as the floods of disbelief wash away our Christian heritage. The founders of this nation revered the Mighty One of Israel and through his help made this country great. As evolution and other false doctrines of men erode our knowledge of God, I hope many of us will still hold fast to the truths of the Bible. Without the mighty arm of Jesus Christ to protect us, we have only governments to rely on, and vain is the help of men.

"It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors." - George Washington

President Washington had it right when he said, "“What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ.” Today you'll find that the Bible is excluded from classrooms and teachings on Jesus Christ are seen as public enemy #1. But what we really need is more of Christ in the classroom.

It is knowing the Lord and his goodness that brings knowledge. Many people credit Darwin and his "science" for current technologies, but true science was built by those who trusted that God's universe is orderly. Former generations benefited immeasurably from biblical teachings. Their dedication and honest work brought us to enjoy technological advancements and prosperity, while evolutionists have actually kept us back from even enjoying the benefits of common sense.

Evolutionists like to say that their "science" is beneficial to mankind, when it has actually kept us back from true scientific inquiry and advancement. For example, evolutionary scientists insisted that the appendix was a vestigial organ, but now we know it has important functions in the body. Fact agrees with biblical truth. The Lord said we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and we find that this statement holds true under scientific study.

If scientists would base their studies on biblical truth instead of being ungrateful to the Lord and working contrary to the facts we have directly from him, there is no telling how much better the world would be today. True education comes from above. No amount of earthly wisdom can ever compare to the wisdom of God.

You read the Bible with blinders on. You don't see how cruel its God is. You only see the happy times. Of the religious text allowed in the Bible it has been estimated that God directly or told Israel to destroy around 2 million people.

Joshua 6
2 Then the LORD said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men.

20 When the trumpets sounded, the people shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the people gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so every man charged straight in, and they took the city. 21 They devoted the city to the LORD and destroyed with the sword every living thing in it—men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys.

You know I bet there were some pregnant women in Jericho. God destroys a fetus?

2 King 10
After Jehu's deceitfulness and slaughter of those of a different faith, God says "Because you have done well in accomplishing what is right in my eyes ... "
You might like to deceive and murder those of an opposite faith by I believe in being honest and having a trial before my peers.

There the almost entire annihilation of mankind with Noah's story. God raining down fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorra. The endless descriptions of what God will do to those who disobey him.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam are the dominant religions in the Western world. This is why Dawkins addresses them. Taking about some remote religious oddities in this realm isn't pertinent.

With all due respect, John, it's you who are reading the Bible with blinders on — if you're reading it at all.

God is a defender of the weak and the helpless. As a just God, he cannot allow the wicked to oppress others. He gives them every opportunity to repent, as he did at Nineveh, but when they rebel, he removes his protection.

You cannot cite cases in which the wicked willingly embraced destruction rather than righteousness and say the Lord was evil for letting them have their desires. Those who sow evil reap it. When people pursue courses directly opposite to the cause of righteousness, they have no right to blame God when things don't go the way they planned. God doesn't force us to choose the right path. We have to choose it ourselves. If we want to run off into the bramble, we're bound to get burned.

Hey, if you want to jump off the cliff of atheism, don't complain about what it's like when you hit bottom. You're the one who picked that course of action.
