God Hater

January 1, 2008

It seems that some of the folks at Hot Air took umbrage with my use of the term God Hater in the Hukster post.  They even put the quote on their headlines page. 

The question they raise is this:  Can an atheist, who does not believe in God at all, be considered a ‘God Hater.’  I am a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ and while I understand the confusion, my definition in this spiritual matter must come from the Bible.  Philosophy may be the queen of all the sciences, but she still has a Lord.

If you have another God besides the Triune God of the Bible then God describes you as a God hater.

Ex 20:3-6

3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image — any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Jesus said that there are two classes of people, those who are His and those who are “of the world.”  This is the great antitheses of the bible.  Jesus said this about those who are not His (atheists would be in the group, no?):

John 15:18,19

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.  19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.  

Then in verses 23- of John 15 the Lord said, 

 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also.  24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father.  25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’ 

Now, the atheist believes himself safe from judgement in all this, both from man and God, after all if they believe God does not exist how that that God hold him/her accountable.  But, let me just say that God knows their heart and He also knows that they are without excuse.

Rom 1:18-19

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

Let me urge my atheist readers (are there any?) to repent of their sin and believe on Jesus Christ.  He is the way the truth and the life.  No one comes unto the Father but by him.

The Huckster…

January 1, 2008

… Why The “Real Christian” Running For President Makes Me Nervous.

Huckster

  • huckster:  One who uses aggressive, showy, and sometimes devious methods to promote or sell a product. (American Heritage Dictionary)
  • More than nervous really.  Nauseous is a better word.  That’s it, I am nauseous and not in a good way.  This is not the upset stomach that comes with endorphins; the ones that would be released into my body at the thought of a Christ follower ascending to the highest office in the US government.  No, this kind of nausea is the kind you get after opening up a bottle of Mellow Yellow on a really hot day, tipping it straight up and closing your eyes, while drinking it half down. Only to open your eyes to see long strands of some bacterial growth hanging from the bottom of the now upturned bottle.  It is that kind of nausea.

    This, from Hot Air, made me want to puke:

    Huckabee nobly cancels attack ad on Romney — then plays it for reporters

    He called a presser to unveil an attack ad on Romney, then decided at the last minute that he’s too Christian a leader to attack another candidate — and then showed the ad to reporters anyway, knowing of course that it’d be the talk of political news coverage tonight and tomorrow.

    This from the New York Times:

    Mr. Huckabee, with his wife standing silently off to the side, said that the “conventional wisdom” was that when you are attacked, you attack back. But, he said, an hour before the press conference, which was scheduled for noon, he just decided not to go that route.

    “It’s not worth it,” he said.

    Polls regularly show that Iowa voters do not reward candidates who go negative, and perhaps Mr. Huckabee saw some of those polls. “The people of Iowa deserve better,” he said.

    Asked if he wasn’t being hypocritical by showing the ad to a roomful of cameras that are likely to record it and show it — for free — around the country, Mr. Huckabee said he was showing it to reporters only because reporters were so cynical that if he didn’t show it, they would not believe that he really had made such an ad.

    Prov 11:9 The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor,
    But through knowledge the righteous will be delivered.

    Read the post, as Hot Air’s resident Atheist, takes The Huckster to task. 

    The thing about hypocrisy is that the God hater spots it with ease, while the hypocrite fails to see the sin.  Why is that?  I think part of the answer lies with our view of biblical reason.  We despise the clear teaching of God for some sort of “heartfelt” experience and as Jeremiah said, “the heart is deceitful above all things  and desperately wicked.”
     

    Happy New Year… I am going to be sick.
