All Scripture

 

Today, the reply is on why the Scriptures are held to be difficult and offensive among some atheists and disbelievers. For developing Christian believers the holy writings are challenging because the Scriptures also should be thought of and dealt with as an appearance and manifestation of divinity that is simple yet profound. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality forum using the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

Why do atheists hate the Word of the Lord?

Atheists claim to follow reason, yet they ignore reason when it comes to the fact that God exists and Jesus died for everyone’s sins. The Bible says that God exists, so it must be true, otherwise why would millions of freedom loving Christians follow Christ so much?

Morality comes directly from Christianity, through the teachings of Jesus. Yet atheists deny morality in favour of drugs, unmarried sex, homosexuality, murder, and other things. If anything, Atheists have rejected God in favour of immorality, so that they can feel “free” (which they obviously aren’t, since God loves each and everyone of us, and God gave us morals).

Why don’t they want moral Christians to tell them how to live your lives in a better way? Why don’t they want moral Christians to establish God’s Rule in politics?

What is it about morality that offends them? What is it about the better way that moral Christians offer them that offends them?

Why are they so delusional? Why do they hate morality so much? Why do they wish death on we the faithful?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? (John 3: 1-12, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, you may find this godly counsel: Many resent being labeled as “sinners” and regarded as somehow deficient because they have made no adult or mature study of the Bible, and because they lack both the sacred knowledge and rebirth as a vessel of Spirit that the holy writings are intended to nourish. Atheists refuse to accept that mankind on the earth is to be permanently changed and transformed by actions and operations of divine fullness (we say, Deity; the GODhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Dismissing the truth of GOD as an aspect of human experience past, present and future, such thinkers can not correctly apprehend the fullness of Creation, the range of divine possibilities displayed and shared by mankind, and the integrity mankind is to maintain in order to exist as more than a brute beast or savage animal.

The Scriptures gradually become open to those who acknowledge themselves capable of being in a continuing relationship with GOD as vessels who have received divine substance. Through water baptism (i.e., the death, burial, and resurrection of ones inborn spirit), a sinner becomes “born again” and receives a fresh endowment of life essence (we say, breath; spirit; word) from the makeup of Deity. Included are faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Those who are born again must “grow up again” and become mature as the offspring and heirs of GOD living on the earth until the Advent of Jesus Christ (we also say, his appearing; the harvest; the Rapture; the Second Coming). amenable to the existence, process, and eternal purposes of GOD.

Many fail to receive blessing by the Scriptures because what the seek is by and from the flesh. The finite tools of human imagination, intellect, logic, philosophy, carnal reason, secular knowledge and science cannot replace or surpass the provision of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD. In the same way a person’s own consciousness, thoughts and self-will are important along with their material and physical body to their having or feeling completeness, the spirit aspect within the living also is important to our existing as complete and whole. Developing believers will be edified and grow in their relationship with divinity by practicing discernment, discovery, fellowship with other believers, prayer, regular study of the Scriptures, and unselfish service. Like others on the earth, believers may experience times of disappointment, hardship, reversals, sorrow, and suffering. While there are many assurances and promises from GOD written in the Scriptures that comfort a believer, there also are calls to duty, exhortations, urging and warnings intended to spark immediate action, godliness, obedience, and vigilance.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
