Are You Ashamed Of Jesus? The Truth Might Surprise You!

Romans 1:16 states emphatically that a true Christian is NOT to be ashamed of the power of God revealed in our lives. But…..really how many of us actually live conscious of that fact? I’d bet good money that we don’t even think about the fact we live like we are ashamed every day, not willingly so much as selectively. We avoid situations that place us in the way of telling others about our savior before we actually get into them thus telling ourselves it wasn’t God’s will to speak to them. We justify simple moves to avoid the bigger issue of  spreading the Gospel of power.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

The power of God is ONLY REVEALED THROUGH US WHEN WE SPEAK ABOUT JESUS AND HIS GOSPEL. Not only that but the righteousness we THINK we have in Christ is directly tied to the preaching of that same Gospel releasing freedom into our lives, so if we become ashamed of that power in ANY WAY we by extension deny God’s power.

Romans 1:17  For therein (In the power of God) is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. “

Now…think about this very carefully, BOTH the righteousness and the power of the Gospel to save us from sin, are tied to NOT BEING ASHAMED of it. Doesn’t that indicate clearly that the majority of so-called salvation’s are hinging upon a proper understanding of this concept?

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;…”

 What is “Holding the Truth” in an unrighteous way? Could it possibly mean THINK YOURSELF to be saved while AT THE SAME TIME BEING ashamed of the Gospel. The two are oxymoron’s, one cannot be saved and ashamed according to scripture, they are mutually exclusive. Could this be the reason most religious people are deceived? Could it be the reason religions create false premises concerning salvation’s rules to cover for this obvious infraction against God?

The just shall live by faith and in order to live by faith,…God’s version of faith in Hebrews 11:1 you must not be ashamed of Gospel because it counter acts what true faith is! True faith cannot be revealed as the overcoming power it is, if you are constantly countering it’s power in you through your personal embarrassment of what it represents. Religious people only believe what their church tells them to believe, they are in effect trained to understand only a limited experience. Their faith is NOT BIBLICAL and thus not able to overcome the world system around them, which is why man-made religions cannot save us!

 Hebrews 11:1    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

True biblical faith CONTAINS certain ingredients that average everyday faith does not, it has substance and evidence contained within it ready to be released through our lives as we believe, that produces everything religion cannot but being ashamed countermands it’s effect. This is called being double minded in scripture.

James 4:8  
 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts, ye double minded. “

We can CURE our double mindedness by simply getting as close to God as we can, and as far from man-made ideas as possible. We then create an atmosphere where pure biblical faith can grow, sprout and reproduce itself in our lives. This is the true Christian faith in action not the fake religious version we all go to church and see. True Christianity is nothing like we see today, of course some things are but that is how we become deceived, we think we are serving God but all the while we are simply serving our own selfish needs, masking them over with religious duties.

Religion is the single most reliable source of Atheism in the world, why? Because it is a never ending well of excuses why God cannot be real. Religion gives lip service to everything real making it powerless before the world. Religion takes everything the bible says and diminishes it’s viable power through traditions created in the minds of mere men, totally powerless traditions!

Who can look at scriptures presentation of the power of God and think for even a second that Christianity as we witness before us is scriptural? What kind of deception is at work to make us excuse our weak kneed version of faith as the real faith of our fathers? How can we read of Jesus’ life in the Gospels, his healing of the sick, casting out of dark spirits, his renewing of the insane minds around him and think…..”Yeah…that’s the kind of power my religion emits around me!”

James 5:19-20  

 “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death,
and shall hide a multitude of sins.” 

Man’s religion is our greatest err from the truth we could have ever committed against God, we have settled for demonic counterfeits rather than biblical truth. We have replaced his power for a powerless pile of dogmas. Do we really think God could be pleased with our lack of power?

 John 4:13-14


“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this
water (The water of normal mortal life.) shall thirst again: 

 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I

shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be
in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Eternal life means just that, it is life that is SELF-REPLICATING, UNABLE TO DIE not simply unwilling to as the natural life of man is. This water from the well of God himself cannot be overcome, cannot be polluted by the world’s ways, cannot be what religion wants it to become…..weak and unobtrusive into the affairs of men!

God has provided us with a power so great that it’s painful to watch how the church has thrown away that power to BLEND IN WITH THE WORLD it’s supposed to be saving from it’s sin. Do we really believe that God will put up with us as mere shadows of what we are supposed to be?

John 6:53-58

 “Then
“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life
in you.  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal
life; and I will raise him up at the last day.   For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 
 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my
blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
 As the living Father hath sent me, and I

live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.  This is
that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and
are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.”

The Church’s power did not end in the forth century it was merely put to sleep by religious unbelief and only awakened periodically over the centuries in revivals that God caused to awaken his bride to be. But for us to believe we are his church we must believe his word to us, his true description of his body. That and that alone is our reflection not the weak religions ideas of what the church is! Human beings have a bad habit of accepting the easiest solution to a problem instead of digging for truth as 04-05-14 - 1God requires of us!

Think about it, would the God of creation really give up all he had to give up just to produce a powerless religion that believes in nothing and accomplishes nothing of import? Would Jesus really want what we know of as the Christian religion to take over the world? Come on people wake up, religion is the poorest excuse for faith and belief that has ever been invented. For heaven’s sake, it’s created more unbelief that all the Atheists combined over the century’s so why do we think for a moment that God is even in our worthless religions?

If we do not obey to the letter what Jesus commands we are not true believers, the truth cannot set you free if your view of it is warped from what it truly is. Truth is not really truth if all it is, is your personal opinion and not God’s word. The Bible is not a book of suggestions it’s a directional instruction for living life as God requires and e do not get a choice on that! Being ashamed of God is not a hard thing to do, it shows itself at every disobedience, every time your opinion trumps God’s direction, every little fear or pandering to the world’s ways creeps in……you are ASHAMED AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED of being ashamed because he gave more than any human being on this planet, past, present and future.

Kenneth Hagin’s Forgotten Warning

 

A warning that I missed from Brother Hagin, it is very refreshing to know he had it right then and it still rings true today!

CBN.com – Charismatic Bible teacher Kenneth Hagin Sr. is considered the father of the so-called prosperity gospel. The folksy, self-trained “Dad Hagin” started a grass-roots movement in Oklahoma that produced a Bible college and a crop of famous preachers including Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Charles Capps, Jesse DuPlantis, Creflo Dollar and dozens of others—all of whom teach that Christians who give generously should expect financial rewards on this side of heaven.

Hagin taught that God was not glorified by poverty and that preachers do not have to be poor. But before he died in 2003 and left his Rhema Bible Training Center in the hands of his son, Kenneth Hagin Jr., he summoned many of his colleagues to Tulsa to rebuke them for distorting his message. He was not happy that some of his followers were manipulating the Bible to support what he viewed as greed and selfish indulgence.

Those who were close to Hagin Sr. say he was passionate about correcting these abuses before he died. In fact, he wrote a brutally honest book to address his concerns.

The Midas Touch was published in 2000, a year after the infamous Tulsa meeting.

Many Word-Faith ministers ignored the book. But in light of the recent controversy over prosperity doctrines, it might be a good idea to dust it off and read it again.

Here are a few of the points Hagin made in The Midas Touch:

1. Financial prosperity is not a sign of God’s blessing. Hagin wrote: “If wealth alone were a sign of spirituality, then drug traffickers and crime bosses would be spiritual giants. Material wealth can be connected to the blessings of God or it can be totally disconnected from the blessings of God.”

2. People should never give in order to get. Hagin was critical of those who “try to make the offering plate some kind of heavenly vending machine.” He denounced those who link giving to getting, especially those who give cars to get new cars or who give suits to get new suits. He wrote: “There is no spiritual formula to sow a Ford and reap a Mercedes.”

3. It is not biblical to “name your seed” in an offering. Hagin was horrified by this practice, which was popularized in faith conferences during the 1980s. Faith preachers sometimes tell donors that when they give in an offering they should claim a specific benefit to get a blessing in return. Hagin rejected this idea and said that focusing on what you are going to receive “corrupts the very attitude of our giving nature.”

4. The “hundredfold return” is not a biblical concept. Hagin did the math and figured out that if this bizarre notion were true, “we would have Christians walking around with not billions or trillions of dollars, but quadrillions of dollars!” He rejected the popular teaching that a believer should claim a specific monetary payback rate.

to those who give in certain offerings. He wrote in The Midas Touch”

(Many evangelists who appear on Christian television today use this bogus claim. Usually they insist that the miraculous debt cancellation will occur only if a person “gives right now,” as if the anointing for this miracle suddenly evaporates after the prime time viewing hour. This manipulative claim is more akin to witchcraft than Christian belief.)

Hagin condemned other hair-brained gimmicks designed to trick audiences into emptying their wallets. He was especially incensed when a preacher told his radio listeners that he would take their prayer requests to Jesus’ empty tomb in Jerusalem and pray over them there—if donors included a special love gift. “What that radio preacher really wanted was more people to send in offerings,” Hagin wrote.

Thanks to the recent resurgence in bizarre donation schemes promoted by American charismatics, the prosperity gospel is back under the nation’s microscope. It’s time to revisit Hagin’s concerns and find a biblical balance.

Hagin told his followers: “Overemphasizing or adding to what the Bible actually teaches invariably does more harm than good.”

If the man who pioneered the modern concept of biblical prosperity blew the whistle on his own movement, wouldn’t it make sense for us to listen to his admonition?

This article by J. Lee Grady of Charisma Magazine will no doubt be doing the rounds but it is worth reprinting in a day when there is a lot of unquestioned practises around, especially to do with giving.
 
Before he died in 2003, the revered father of the Word-Faith movement corrected his spiritual sons for going to extremes with their message of prosperity.

Part 1 – The Doorway of Proving what we hope for :The Faith of God!

Rom 10:17
 
True faith comes from God, therefore it is empowered by the Words of God as YOU speak them in confession before God. As we learned earlier the Evidence we see in creation about God is ONLY REVEALED through the Faith that God gives you at the New Birth, it contains within it the PROVING of the evidence you now do not see. 
 
Beneath the SEEN WORLD is an UNSEEN WORLD where the the physical realm’s evidences are proven by the spiritual realm to be real, all of science is the outward evidence of the spiritual truth that PROVES it true, no theory of Man that cannot be proven by its counterpart in God’s realm is true.

It is its spiritual structure that HOLDS it together, keeping it from flying apart!
 
Heb 11:1  
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:3  
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Heb 12:2

Always remember that there are TWO kinds of faith, one faith is natural every day belief in what we do, sitting in a chair, walking down the street, natural faith is an assumption that what is will be, BUT God’s pure Faith goes one step further, his faith presents absolute proof OF WHAT HE ASKS YOU TO DO.
Real faith, present tense (Now) faith from God provides proof that the evidences we do see in the physical realm are real and will come forth as promised. God never says what his faith cannot produce therefore his promises in Christ are YES and Amen!
 Jas 2:26  
God’s faith just like natural faith REQUIRES an action to produce results, no matter how much faith we think we have, if we NEVER ACT UPON his instructions then no results will happen, like planting a garden, if you keep the seed in your pocket and never put it in the ground it cannot grow!
2Pe 1:5  
“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;..”
God requires us to know things, his faith in us is not a blind belief, http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002GWWD1E&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrlike mans religion is, but one of PURITY and KNOWLEDGE the proof manifest through our actions. We are a LIVING EPISTLE written in the heart, known and read by all men because we act like he acted while he was here, that’s what Christlike means. 
The Church has FAILED miserably before the world, we act like other men who copied other men instead of being HIS written word in our hearts, revealing the proof of God in the world!

1Jn 5:4  
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1596444312&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr“For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. “

Rev 14:12  
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
Gods Faith doesn’t work UNDER WAVERING, DOUBTFUL CONDITIONS, just think about this for a second, if you had kids that WAVERED and DOUBTED every thing you told them. Would your words mean anything to them? Would your presence matter to them? 
When you have confidence in someone’s word to you, you never doubt the outcome because you possess the proof internally, you trust emphatically that what they say is what will happen because you have experienced them personally. The longer you experience http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0007EHC5A&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrGod’s word and act upon it, the deeper the proof becomes, depth in God is revealed as your faith grows!

Psa 42:7  
 
“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. “

Joh 1:1  
 
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:14

Because we are dealing with not just a part of God but with God himself being planted in our recreated Human spirit, Faith is more than a belief but the result of belief, the proof, the evidence of Hopes and dreams, the very thing that holds every ATOM in the universe together resides in your heart waiting for you to act upon what God says.
This does not seem to be dealing with Apologetic issues but I assure you that these teachings are the very foundation of every thing we believe. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0830816496&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIf you do not understand what true faith is you cannot PROVE to yourself or anyone else that God is real if he’s not real to you first; that is just logical! The Atheist and the Agnostic are looking at a spiritual issue from the BACKWARD position, wanting proof that can ONLY come through personal experience, then turning around and refusing to act upon it to gain the proof. 
It is they who are trapped in a “God Box” never being able to leave the confusion of wanting proof of God and not able to act on it to get the proof they seek! It goes against everything in them to OBEY BEFORE RECEIVING THE PROOF but that is how God made FAITH to work, because in doing it that way it filters out the wavering and doubt our human condition is cursed with. SIMPLE OBEDIENCE to God, NOT A http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=193659417X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrCHURCH, NOT A MAN-MADE IDEA, BUT TO GOD ALONE releases the proof you seek, but you must first do the required action…..SALVATION!

The Bible: Circular Reasoning or Proof of God?

The statement “Christians can’t use circular reasoning by trying to prove the bible by quoting from the bible!”
This question which sounds reasonable to the masses who hate all things God, is lacking BOTH common sense and reasonableness  if you use proper logic! The Bible is a written record of what http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0529122170&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrhappened from the beginning until the future, it is God’s memory recorded in writing of the history of the earth. So to even think that its not O.K. to use it to prove the proposition that God exists is at best avoidance of PROOF.
It is like saying you cannot prove that the president lives in the White House by looking inside the White House to provide the necessary proof!

Is it wrong to read the Origin of Species to gain insight into Darwin’s mind or is that also circular Reasoning? 
The fallacy of petitio principii, or “begging the question”, is committed “when a proposition which requires proof is assumed without proof.    More specifically, petitio principii refers to arguing for a conclusion that has already been assumed in the premise, in effect “begging” any listener to “question” the basis of the logic.
Using the Bible to prove it true is a totally different thing because the Bible contains all the evidence needed to prove the proposition true, all that is needed is the FAITH of God to activate the mind to reason it out of the Bible.

Only in recent years has science discovered that everything we see is composed of invisible atoms. Here, Scripture tells us that the “things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
2. Medical science has only recently discovered that blood-clotting in a newborn reaches its peak on the eighth day, then drops. The Bible consistently says that a baby must be circumcised on the eighth day. 
3. At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant (1500 B.C.), the Bible spoke of the earth’s free float in space: “He…hangs the earth upon nothing” (Job 26:7).
4. The prophet Isaiah also tells us that the earth is round: “It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth” (Isaiah 40:22). This is not a reference to a flat disk, as some skeptics http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0805424628&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrmaintain, but to a sphere. Secular man discovered this 2,400 years later. At a time when science and FALSE  believed that the earth was flat, is was the Scriptures that inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world (see Proverbs 3:6 footnote). 
5. God told Job in 1500 B.C.: “Can you send lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, Here we are?” (Job 38:35). The Bible here is making what appears to be a scientifically ludicrous statement—that light can be sent, and then manifest itself in speech. But did you know that radio waves travel at the speed of light? 
This is why you can have instantaneous wireless communication with someone on the other side of the earth. Science didn’t discover this until 1864 when “British scientist James Clerk Maxwell suggested that electricity and light waves were two forms of the same thing” (Modern Century Illustrated Encyclopedia).
6. Job 38:19 asks, “Where is the way where light dwells?” Modern man has only recently discovered that light (electromagnetic radiation) has a “way,” traveling at 186,000 miles per second.

Science has discovered that stars emit radio waves, which are received on earth as a high pitch. God mentioned this in Job 38:7: “When the morning stars sang together…”
8. “Most cosmologists (scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation, in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth” (Time, Dec. 1976). 
9. Solomon described a “cycle” of air currents two thousand years before scientists “discovered” them. “The wind goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the wind returns again according to his circuits” (Ecclesiastes 1:6). 
10. Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power, and motion. Genesis 1:1,2 revealed such truths to the Hebrews in 1450 B.C.: “In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter] . . . And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters.” The first thing God tells man is that He controls of all aspects of the universe. 
11. The great biological truth concerning the importance of blood in our body’s mechanism has http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001HFLU8I&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrbeen fully comprehended only in recent years. Up until 120 years ago, sick people were “bled,” and many died because of the practice. If you lose your blood, you lose your life. Yet Leviticus 17:11, written 3,000 years ago, declared that blood is the source of life: “For the life of the flesh is in the blood.” 
12. All things were made by Him (see John 1:3), including dinosaurs. Why then did the dinosaur disappear? The answer may be in Job 40:15–24. In this passage, God speaks about a great creature called “behemoth.” Some commentators think this was a hippopotamus. However, the hippo’s tail isn’t like a large tree, but a small twig. Following are the characteristics of this huge animal: It was the largest of all the creatures God made; was plant-eating (herbivorous); had its strength in its hips and a tail like a large tree.
It had very strong bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amounts of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river. He appears impervious to attack because his nose could pierce through snares, but Scripture says, “He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.” In other words, God caused this, the largest of all the creatures He had made, to become extinct.

Encyclopedia Britannica documents that in 1845, a young doctor in Vienna named Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was horrified at the terrible death rate of women who gave birth in hospitals. As many as 30 percent died after giving birth. Semmelweis noted that doctors would examine the bodies of patients who died, then, without washing their hands, go straight to the next ward and examine expectant mothers. 
This was their normal practice, because the presence of microscopic diseases was unknown. Semmelweis insisted that doctors wash their hands before examinations, and the death rate immediately dropped to 2 percent. 
Look at the specific instructions God gave His people for when they encounter disease: “And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself even days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean” (Leviticus 15:13). 
Until recent years, doctors washed their hands in a bowl of water, leaving invisible germs on their hands. However, the Bible says specifically to wash hands under “running water.” 
14. Luke 17:34–36 says the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will occur while some are asleep at night and others are working at daytime activities in the field. This is a clear indication of a revolving earth, with day and night at the same time.

People often wondered why the disease was affecting so many people at one time. They attributed these epidemics to ‘bad air’ or ‘evil spirits.’ However, careful attention to the medical commands of God as revealed in Leviticus would have saved untold millions of lives. 
Arturo Castiglione wrote about the overwhelming importance of this biblical medical law: ‘The laws against leprosyin Leviticus 13 may be regarded as the first model of sanitary legislation’ (A History of Medicine).” 
Grant R. Jeffery, The Signature of God 

“With all these truths revealed in Scripture, how could a thinking person deny that the Bible is supernatural in origin?”

There is no other book in any of the world’s religions (Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita, Koran, Book of Mormon, etc.) that contains scientific truth. In fact, they contain statements that are clearly unscientific.

“Faith in Christ is not some blind leap into a dark chasm, but a faith based on established evidence.” (Hebrews 11:1 )

The Bible is ANYTHING but circular reasoning, it is a witness to great things proven within its supernatural pages. 

The Bible: Proofs of its Supernatural Origin!

To deny this is to close one’s mind to facts that bother your theory of beginnings.

Part 2 -The Doorway to Belief: How FAITH Opens the Proof of God!

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0964261065&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrAs we learned previously, The Bible cannot be learned from, with “The Mind of the Flesh”mindset; meaning that the Natural Mind is blinded to anything spiritual…..period! The natural human mind cannot imagine the half of what God HAS DONE let alone what he will do BY FAITH!
The words of God are of spiritual nature so it is totally understandable and Logical that it must then be spiritually understood, opened within the spirit man to reveal its proof within you once you have obeyed God. 
This is what the Bible calls “The Renewing of the Mind” http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0890510032&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrrestructuring our thinking so that what God says makes perfect sense to our human mind, the problem is we have become religious rather than smart in our thinking!
 Romans 12
 1I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.
   
2Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
The total transformation of the mind through the Word of God, and remember the Words of God are the containers of proof, of http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002Z14MXI&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrevidence, of answers to our deepest questions. Once we renew our thinking and restructure our mind to think as God himself would think then the Will of God becomes second nature to us!
Man’s religion, his attempt to reach God aside from God’s provisions for Salvation and his CLEAR commands, are mind/flesh agreements that DISAGREE with God’s clear Commands. (Idol Worship is a clear case, praying to saints, confessing to men sin, ALL CLEAR DISOBEDIENCE TO SCRIPTURE
Religion is wearing a Fig Leaf to cover sin instead of allowing God to put the Blood of Christ there. People who are deceived by religion are as blinded by darkness as skeptics who don’t know the Lord at all and cannot see the truth before them, the only difference is that Religion has access to the truth in their laps or http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0830832351&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifron their coffee tables daily and Skeptics don’t. 
 WHAT IS BELIEF?

1. The mental act, condition, or habit of placing trust or confidence in another: My belief in you is as strong as ever.
2. Mental acceptance of and conviction in the truth, actuality, or validity of something: His explanation of what happened defies belief.
3. Something believed or accepted as true, especially a particular tenet or a body of tenets accepted by a group of persons.
This equally applies to science as it does religion, there’s no way around this. Scientists BELIEVE certain things based SOMETIMES on good scientific evidence and other times not so much, so for Atheist’s to say they are not a religion, a belief system is at best a denial of the obvious. 
 
I know they are not a religion LIKE a denomination but in basic terms ALL men worship something, god or God or Humanism or science as a concept to explain who we are, why are we here and where are we going? 
That is where the similarities end through, because without proof there is NO God, Atheists have no firm base on which to stand http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0520261879&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrsince the ALL NATURAL explanation of origins (Evolution) is naked of proof, only circumstantial evidence!
As I have said TRUE BIBLICAL FAITH according to Hebrews 11:1 is the real base on which all Christian evidence rests BUT it must be understood FIRST of all that the requirement of God is to receive HIS FAITH FIRST then all the evidence’s PROOF’S are revealed to the Mind!   

Hebrews 10:34 (Amplified Bible)

For you did sympathize and suffer along with those who were imprisoned, and you bore cheerfully the plundering of your belongings and the confiscation of your property, in the knowledge and consciousness that you yourselves had a better and lasting possession.”

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0690045654&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrFaith produces true Knowledge by stirring our Consciousness with “doubtless” confidence in God’s ability to fulfill what he has said to us, that goes for evidence for whatever we are desiring to get from him!

True Biblical Faith is the heaven sent SUBSTANCE of what we desire, physically or Mentally need to know or have. Faith given by God CONTAINS within its seed every thing needed to BRING that desire into OUR REALITY.

Just as in Science, you MUST STOP doing everything that will taint your results, your heart must be like a “Clean Room” in a Lab, pure from any desire that is Hypocritical to what you want to happen. If you desire Healing it would be a conflict of Interest to keep claiming your sick. Don’t deny the truth, but rather reinforce your true desire with scriptural backing, thus creating the end result as God framed the worlds.


A scientist doesn’t REHEARSE a wrong idea when he knows it won’t get the result wanted, he changes what he’s doing to match the wanted results, in the same way we must change what doesn’t work (Our Confessions to others and ourselves) and start confessing what God says about us, that’s how FAITH serves God’s purposes in our life.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0006UEVQ8&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrWhenever we excel in our desires we are experiencing prosperity from God and that is HIS PERFECT WILL FOR US! 

Hebrews 11:6 (Amplified Bible)

“But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

Did you see that, “whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists“, that is clearly proof of what I’ve been saying about the proper way to get your proof. First http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0007QQULK&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifraccept him by Faith then the proof that he exists follows, its not a blind faith without proof.

“Without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him.” God loves a FAITH following believer, and will ALWAYS answer their prayers of heart felt desire. Faith gets God’s attention immediately and HIGHLIGHTS YOUR NEEDS AND DESIRES.

Psalm 35:27 (Amplified Bible)

“Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”

Mark 11:23-24 (Amplified Bible)

“Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.
    
For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].


This is an exciting verse, or it should be for the skeptic, who is willing top follow the RULE laid down by God in his word, its a chance to PROVE once and for all if God is real or imaginary, but you must first follow what he’s told you to do. This isn’t hard, but the skeptical mind cannot be in obedience to what it rejects from the outset.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0892767286&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIf your in revolt to God in ANY WAY, faith CANNOT WORK, if you are not in total obedience to his requirements YOU HAVE SPOILED THE EXPERIMENT and have no right to criticize God from a scientific standpoint. A scientific mindset would never do what MOST skeptics do normally, rebel against the results because you don’t want to believe the alternative idea.
A true Scientist goes into an investigation UNBIASED trying to find Evidence of ether side of the argument NOT going into it with doubts of one side and belief of the other side strong, HOW could any result but the one expected ever happen? If you are like that your not serious about the results and are the biblical definition of a HYPOCRITE!
 

Part 1 – The Doorway to Proof Opened – Your Move!

I have heard countless Atheist’s, Agnostic’s and Skeptic’s state that IF I could show them http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0802863833&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrabsolute PROOF that God existed (Which is funny if you think about it, since FEW of them believe in an ABSOLUTE TRUTH in any way), ARE THEY HEDGING THEIR BET’S? 

They have valid issues they bring to the table BUT SO DO WE, so why is it that our issues with the “Natural” evolutionary model of all things are NEVER ANSWERED, but only double talked away as insignificant?

Well there is absolute proof of God available to them BUT they refuse to accept the WAY in which that Evidential Proof is received. That limits the reception of the proof because they have succeeded in muddying the water in regards to spiritual evidence. 
Sort of like if a scientist (And keep in mind I’m using a physical example to show a spiritual issue.) were to deny that a physical tree grows in the forest from a seed because he’s NEVER SEEN A SEED in nature, so it must not exist and by virtue the tree could not come from such a small seed.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B000GB5MEC&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrI know this is a great stretch but the point is that there can be no agreement on ether side until science can see for itself the evidence, so the issue I bring into the debate here is valid to science. If the proof is hidden with the evidence presented and can be seen ONLY ONE WAY then it is the job of those who SAY they want the proof to get it the way its supposed to be viewed and stop all the slight of hand and dishonest intellectual word play to avoid doing what must be done to receive! 

As I teach this lesson which God himself instilled in me by Revelation, it is my prayer and hope through Faith that every skeptic can pull a personal revelation in the natural to finally do what must be done to witness what they seem to seek!

THE DOORWAY OF PROOF: Its as close as your Heart!

Hebrews 11:3

 
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

 So as you can see from this verse, the NATURAL WORLD was not made from the http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0801072603&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrNatural elements which we see, feel and smell around us but from a SUPERNATURAL source called FAITH, CONSISTING OF THE VERY WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE!

The key to studying scripture is NEVER to use it or look at from the MIND OF THE FLESH!
God never intended his word that was created from faith to be used from a fleshly standpoint ONLY from the recreated Human HEART (The Spirit of Man Born Again) to look from human emotion is surface knowledge and it extremely dangerous to your eternal destiny. 
 
The Word of God is a powder Keg of eternal explosives, once released it has the power to create world’s and renew lives BUT at the same time if MISUSED OR MISAPPLIED just like ‘sweating dynamite” it can do much damage to your life as well, Christian or Unsaved.
 
Original intent plays big in how the word of God reveals truth and if you “superimpose” your false intent or even denominational slant upon God’s, the danger is real for judgment because God will not stand for being misspoken of forever. This is what’s meant by “Laying up in store for Judgment to come.”

Let’s look at a passage of scripture from the Amplified Bible to see just how misunderstood it has been:

John 10:1-42 (Amplified Bible)

John 10

 1I ASSURE you, most solemnly I tell you, he who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way (elsewhere, from some other quarter) is a thief and a robber.

What is this DOOR? The doorway into the sheepfold is Jesus in http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001NZ2AYA&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrthe wider sense but the Word of God in the lesser sense because the Bible says Jesus is the Word of God in flesh. 
 
So we can clearly teach from this that ANYONE saved or unsaved that tries to enter into the knowledge of God or the power of God anyway but through The Word of God is a thief and a Robber. 
 
Why? 
 
Because if you are to understand God it must be by HIS testimony of himself not our “superimposed idea” of him through false experiences and comparisons made by men! This how Israel fell flat on her face whenever she backslid from God’s picture of himself through his Laws and presence and looked instead at nations of the world’s picture through false gods.
 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0977743365&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIf your internalized picture of God is based in any way on your experiences in the flesh, your perspective is through a dirty glass instead of in the perfect mirror of His word.

    2But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
  
  3The watchman opens the door for this man, and the sheep listen to his voice and heed it; and he calls his own sheep by name and brings (leads) them out.
Now let’s see how its supposed to work, THE WORD of God, Jesus; enters through the DOORWAY of FAITH and becomes our SHEPHERD (Jesus: The Word ) and the WATCHMEN This I believe is our spirit-man within being guided by the Holy Spirit to OPEN THE DOORWAY OF BELIEF bursting forth the PROOF of what’s just happened with our hearts.

As we learn to listen to the voice of his word and DO IT, then he begins to CALL OUT of us that internalized PROOF into the http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001KEHAFI&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrworld for them to see. We must first act upon what the word says THEN our belief becomes FACT BASED because its been grow from the seed it was encased in just as a natural Tree grows, for some its faster and for others it takes longer but rest assured it WILL GROW!
    4When he has brought his own sheep outside, he walks on before them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.
    5They will never [on any account] follow a stranger, but will run away from him because they do not know the voice of strangers or recognize their call.
Once the revelation of pure truth begins to grow to maturity then Jesus draws us out-side of self and shows forth his glory to the http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=088270432X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrworld. Jesus himself WALKS through us, in us, leading before us into deeper and deeper depths of truth. This is as it should be but because of natural interference’s such as “The World, The Flesh and the Devil” the process is most often slower to take UNLESS WE RESIST STEADFASTLY IN THE FAITH!
    6Jesus used this parable (illustration) with them, but they did not understand what He was talking about.
Why didn’t they understand this seemingly simple parable? Because their hearts were not RENEWED, or RECONFIGURED by the New Birth to understand what was under the surface of his word, this is the same problem Religion faces, being man-made it misses the mark of God’s perfection.
    7So Jesus said again, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that I Myself am the Door [a]for the sheep.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B003LVZ4H4&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr    8All others who came [as such] before Me are thieves and robbers, but the [true] sheep did not listen to and obey them.
  
  9I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture.
All others who try to enter Salvation some other way than by Jesus are stealing from you the ONLY doorway into divine revelation of the real PROOF, the ultimate proof of the Living God which is HIS CHANGE OF YOU!

    10The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [b]overflows).
   
11I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd risks and lays down His [own] life for the sheep.(A)
    12But the hired servant (he who merely serves for wages) who is neither the http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B000SH81HE&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrshepherd nor the owner of the sheep, when he sees the wolf coming, deserts the flock and runs away. And the wolf chases and snatches them and scatters [the flock].
     13Now the hireling flees because he merely serves for wages and is not himself concerned about the sheep [cares nothing for them].
    14I am the Good Shepherd; and I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize Me–
    15Even as [truly as] the Father knows Me and I also know the Father–and I am giving My [very own] life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep.
    16And I have other sheep [beside these] that are not of this fold. I must bring and [c]impel those also; and they will listen to My voice and heed My call, and so there will be [they will become] one flock under one Shepherd.(B)
    17For this [reason] the Father loves Me, because I lay down My [own] life–to take it back again.
  
  18No one takes it away from Me. On the contrary, I lay it down http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0967501008&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrvoluntarily. [I put it from Myself.] I am authorized and have power to lay it down (to resign it) and I am authorized and have power to take it back again. These are the instructions (orders) which I have received [as My charge] from My Father.
 This is why there is ONLY one way into salvation, because NO ONE ELSE has the Authority of God but Jesus, NO MAN ON EARTH could or even would follow God’s instruction’s as Jesus has! ALL other religions carry no God given Authority to be shepherds of God’s flock, all doctrine MUST PASS the one doorway TEST in order to be labeled pure before God! 
This entire chapter teaches us that there is ONLY ONE WAY to get the evidence all over creation to be revealed as the PROOF it is! FAITH CONTAINS the proof of God, without faith you cannot please God NOR can you understand him…..PERIOD!
 http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001PO650O&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr   19Then a fresh division of opinion arose among the Jews because of His saying these things.
    20And many of them said, He has a demon and He is mad (insane–He raves, He rambles). Why do you listen to Him?

    21Others argued, These are not the thoughts and the language of one possessed. Can a demon-possessed person open blind eyes?
   
 
Do you see a pattern here concerning the debate about God and creation! 
 
What was the first thing the Jews did after Jesus CLEARLY EXPLAINED himself and his DOCTRINE to them? 
 
Did they accept him as he stated to do?
 
Did they get the point, the simple point?
 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0041EVWBC&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrNO, they did what the world today does concerning God and creation, because they had another WAY to salvation (They thought!) and any new idea was foreign to them!
 
Instead of doing as instructed which would have been easier, they INSULTED HIM, and said his DOCTRINE was inspired from Devils. Sound Familiar? 
 
Whenever Atheist’s can’t answer the questions posed or the Ideas presented to them CLEARLY they simply resort to insults and demeaning the Bible, do you see the pattern? This will always happen when we try to raise our knowledge above God’s perfect knowledge.  
22After this the Feast of Dedication [of the reconsecration of the temple] was taking place at Jerusalem. It was winter,
    23And Jesus was walking in Solomon’s Porch in the temple area.
    24So the Jews surrounded Him and began asking Him, How long are You going to keep us in http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002W5UPJM&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrdoubt and suspense? If You are really the Christ (the Messiah), tell us so plainly and openly.
    25Jesus answered them, I have told you so, yet you do not believe Me [you do not trust Me and rely on Me]. The very works that I do by the power of My Father and in My Father’s name bear witness concerning Me [they are My credentials and evidence in support of Me].
    26But you do not believe and trust and rely on Me because you do not belong to My fold [you are no sheep of Mine].
    27The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
    28And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand.
    29My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater and mightier than all [else]; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of the Father’s hand.
    30I and the Father are One.
    31Again the Jews [d]brought up stones to stone Him.
  http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0061335304&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr  32Jesus said to them, My Father has enabled Me to do many good deeds. [I have shown many acts of mercy in your presence.] For which of these do you mean to stone Me?
    33The Jews replied, We are not going to stone You for a good act, but for blasphemy, because You, a mere [e]Man, make Yourself [out to be] God.
    34Jesus answered, Is it not written in your Law, I said, You are gods?(C)
    35So men are called gods [by the Law], men to whom God’s message came–and the Scripture cannot be set aside or cancelled or broken or annulled–
    36[If that is true] do you say of the One Whom the Father consecrated and dedicated and set apart for Himself and sent into the world, You are blaspheming, because I said, I am the Son of God?
    37If I am not doing the works [performing the deeds] of My Father, then do not believe Me [do not adhere to Me and trust Me and rely on Me].
    38But if I do them, even though you do not believe Me or have faith in Me, [at least] believe the works and have faith in what I http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0041EUNLM&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrdo, in order that you may know and understand [clearly] that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father [One with Him].
    39They sought again to arrest Him, but He escaped from their hands.
    40He went back again across the Jordan to the locality where John was when he first baptized, and there He remained.
    41And many came to Him, and they kept saying, John did not perform a [single] sign or miracle, but everything John said about this Man was true.
    42And many [people] there became believers in Him. [They adhered to and trusted in and relied on Him.]
These verses clearly tell us that unbelief in what God says produces an unreceptive heart, there is no way to know about the creator until the acceptance of his Word.
 
The Father God and his Son are BOTH one WORD given to us to http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002IBZN10&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrreveal himself to us, all the proof and the evidence are contained in the very same FAITH he gives to do the Job he requires. 
The Works that Jesus did contained all the evidence and proof the Jews needed to believe in their Messiah but they were unable to understand the very scriptures they worshiped because they were stuck on the surface level its statements. The Word of God is hidden on purpose from those who cannot understand the depth beneath it.
 
WHY?
 
Simple, would you give dynamite to a 1 year old to play with or to a experienced bomb maker who knows what he has? 

It takes a lot to be worthy of knowing him doesn’t it? Well……not really, it only takes simple obedience to the instructions given. It takes changing our perspective just a little and allowing God the http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0802844502&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrbenefit of our doubt, doing the simple act of receiving his FAITH and the rest will take care of itself!

As this lesson continues you will be amazed as to just how simple the problem of proof of God and creation is, BUT I hold no illusions about winning any argument with the Skeptics here, this simply my response to their QUESTION of “If there is a God, PROVE it to me!” If they STILL do not wish to see it, then so be it, I’ve done my part to admonish and to warn!





 
 
 
 
 


Part 4 -The Doorway to Belief: How FAITH Opens the Proof of God!

 
 
Yes, of course they do…..It’s just that they don’t call it “faith” they can’t bring themselves to admit that they have the same natural faith as religiousness does. 
 
It’s called something else, like “testing” or “probability” or “reliability” all word games and slight of hand, yet it is the exact same thing as false Religious faith. Until God’s Kind of Faith reaches down and touches our natural human propensity for belief, NOTHING CAN CHANGE!
NOT BIBLICAL FAITH!

Yet faith underlies all phenomenon that can be measured by a scientific instrument, otherwise how do you explain the “trust, allegiance to duty,  firm belief in something, complete trust something that is believed especially with strong conviction” in science that scientist’s show. 
 
THIS IS A NATURAL FAITH IN SCIENCE!
 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B003E7F05Q&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThere is or was a mind WE CALL GOD that believed in everything a scientist can measure. But their faith will not allow them PAST A CERTAIN POINT of belief, that’s why a Scientist who is a true Christian can go farther and connect with God’s Faith. The scientist must be part of that belief structure or he will not be able to experience what the bible reveals.
 
“The statement ‘there is no God’ is quite different from the claim that there can’t be a god. The latter makes a claim regarding possibility; the former is an actuality or existential claim. 
 
I doubt that there are many theologians or Christian apologists who would claim that all their faith amounts to is a belief in the possibility of this or that. One can believe there is no God because there can’t be a god, but one might also disbelieve in God while admitting the possibility of the Judeo-Christian or any other god.
 
Disbelief in God is analogous to disbelief in Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Santa Claus, or the Easter Bunny. 
 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0664230903&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrYet, those who believe in Bigfoot and Nessie, for example, aren’t known for claiming they believe out of faith. To say you have faith in Bigfoot or faith in Nessie sounds ludicrous. 
 
Believers in Bigfoot think there is good evidence for their belief. Disbelievers argue that the evidence is not strong at all and does not deserve assent to the proposition that Bigfoot exists. Disbelievers in Bigfoot do not disbelieve as an act of faith; they disbelieve because the evidence is not persuasive. 
 
Belief in God, on the other hand, could be either an act of faith or a belief based on conclusions from evidence and argument. If the theistic belief is an act of faith then the one holding the belief either thinks the evidence against belief outweighs or equals the evidence for belief, or the belief is held without regard for evidence at all. Otherwise, the belief is not an act of faith but of belief that the evidence is stronger for belief than against.
 
 
 The above argument is interesting but unrelated at the same time simply because he assumes to much and thus over-inflates his point! Believer’s in anything have NATURAL FAITH, its the simple bottom-line he misses in his extended boring explanations. The evidence spoken of here is circumstantial at best but that doesn’t prove they don’t hold faith in that little evidence.
 
 A whole lot of double talk later his point is lost in a mess of words like “Faith, Belief, Evidence” my point is clear here, Natural Faith is Natural Faith whether or not a big-footer or a Scientist holds it, its a simple matter of what your Faith is in not how you Redefine what human faith is!
…science has its own faith-based belief system. All science proceeds on the assumption that nature is ordered in a rational and intelligible way. You couldn’t be a scientist if you thought the universe was a meaningless jumble of odds and ends haphazardly juxtaposed. When physicists probe to a deeper level of subatomic structure, or astronomers extend the reach of their instruments, they expect to encounter additional elegant mathematical order. And so far this faith has been justified. (“Taking Science on Faith,” New York Times, Nov. 24, 2007)


“The claim that the assumptions of science are of the same kind as the belief in the Trinity, the Virgin birth, or the existence of God is as wrong as Dr. Spencer’s belief that the claim that ‘everything evolved from natural processes’ is an act of faith.” 
 
 
I’m not sure why he cannot clearly see that what he is denying is really there but it must be a cloud of thick demonic blindness. He has worded himself into a corner so many times already I’m amazed he doesn’t have claustrophobia. All kidding aside, this is so silly an argument its painful to listen to if you have the least bit of knowledge about God and Faith. But that is the kind of dishonest coverage true Faith gets from dishonest science.
 

“Dr. Spencer’s belief that the claim that ‘everything evolved from natural processes'”

 
 
Everything evolving from the natural is a common belief in Science but it would take much more faith than any religion could muster, natural processes CANNOT be shown in the problem of D.N.A. 
 
How could the information in D.N.A. required for life, ever evolve over Millions of years if ALL the information is needed from the beginning in order for life to exist?
 
This is an impossible question to answer as science stands today, there’s nothing to explain this missing link in common sense among scientist’s except FAITH to believe the impossible without evidence to prove their position.
 
“If the only alternatives are that everything evolved from either supernatural or natural forces, and one is unconvinced by the arguments and evidence presented by those who believe in supernatural forces, then logically the only reasonable belief is that everything evolved from natural forces. Only if the evidence supporting a supernatural being were superior or equal to the evidence and arguments against such a belief, would belief that everything evolved from natural forces be a matter of faith.”
 
My answer to this is “It is superior and it is a matter of faith on both fronts except my Faith belongs to God”, the evidence is mounting daily against the natural beginning of anything, creation is shinning brightly with the real answer and science is taking notice slowly but surely! If you could pull apart the double helix, you would see the exposed ends of four different chemicals waving in the air. Those four chemicals, called bases carry the information used to make a body and to keep it running.

Scientists named each of the four bases with a letter, G, A, T or C. All of the letters in one cell make up the human genome, a complete set of instructions for making a person, but how could our D.N.A. evolve a little at a time? It had to be intact completely or human life could not exist, so how did D.N.A.’S information evolve from soup to ape to human?
 

 
“Thus, our disbelief in a supernatural creator is not an act of faith, and therefore, not non-rational as are those of theists and Christian apologists. However, if Christian apologists insist on claiming that science is faith-based or that their version of Christianity and the rejections of their views are equally acts of faith, I will insist that the apologists have a non-rational faith, while their opponents have a rational faith. Though I think it would be less dishonest and less misleading to admit that atheists and naturalists do not base their beliefs on faith in any sense close to that of religious faith.
 
Wow, this guy is a “double talk freak” first he isn’t then he is now he isn’t kind of guy, he said all that stuff just to say what they always say, “we don’t have faith you do” hogwash at its best!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Part 3 -The Doorway to Belief: How FAITH Opens the Proof of God!

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0825424348&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThose who HATE or at the very Least dislike Jesus and his Church, do so FIRST of all because We as believers do not live up to our words or his Word, but that aside they would HATE him for the simple reason of “The Obedience Question” attached to the “Good News” of the Bible. 
Under all the “fake anger” and questions of our motives that we, as believers are not allowed to answer because our evidence is not good enough, there is that simple problem at the core of every argument they make, they do not like obedience to God, that is the real issue, no matter what is said against the Bible or God!
Let’s not kid ourselves here, say what you will, that is the single most hated thing to mankind,….. “FIX the world’s troubles, take away our problems of Hunger, Sickness and Poverty but do not with all that, require US to OBEY God in return. Its my life, leave me alone and let me do as I please!” 

ALL THE ARGUMENTS IN THE WORLD CANNOT HIDE THAT FACT!

STATEMENTS LIKE THIS ONE ARE AN EXAMPLE OF THE LEVEL OF HATE.

“Always remember, faith is the tool of deceivers and the abode (house) of folly and error. Its sole purpose is to keep good people from seeking the truth and understanding wisdom. Would the creator of all knowledge and wisdom insist that you remain ignorant by simply believing what you have been told by obviously duplicitous religious founders and leaders?”

WHILE I AGREE THAT RELIGION IS FILLED WITH THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE AS IS http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0307458687&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrATHEISM, THIS STATEMENT IS IN ITSELF DUPLICITOUS IN NATURE AND REQUIRES US TO BELIEVE THAT GOD DOESN’T AND DOES EXIST IN THE SAME STATEMENT! How would one know how the God of Wisdom and Knowledge would act if he doesn’t exist? 
The Bible is God’s wisdom and KNOWLEDGE BUT it’s is said to be mythological and spurious at the core so the question is a straw argument MEANT TO STIR EMOTION NOT ANSWER A QUESTION or PROVE ANYTHING ONE WAY OR THE OTHER!

God’s kind of Faith as defined in Hebrews 11:1 CANNOT in any way be used to perform these acts only the normal everyday faith of man is a tool to do evil, that should be obvious to anyone who studies the word of God seriously but some do not study to learn, they look to find fault and this is intellectual dishonesty bold and obvious. 
It is humanism that has failed to prove its purpose, BECAUSE whenever it has held sway in any nation around the world DESPOTISM and heartbreak rule the day JUST AS with false Religion, SO WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE, THEY BOTH DERIVE POWER FROM SELFISHNESS NOT TRUE FAITH?

I do not disrespect you or what you believe, but you think its o.k. to disrespect me and my God, WHY? Because your thinking about God makes my belief a Myth to be http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1849021376&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrtrodden upon and disrespected, but your beliefs are to be respected and followed simply because mine are mythical to you? That at its face is garbage, because my evidence HAS NEVER been disproved, simply DISMISSED out of hand which only proves that in a battle of ideas you LOOSE!

I do not ask that you believe me, I only ask for a fair hearing in regard to God and creation’s proof FOUND ONLY BY FAITH ALONE! Are you so afraid I’m right that you resort to insult’s and false statements about faith, that says volumes about the insecurity of your belief’s and that goes for Christians as well, civility should rule the day not fighting each other over nothing solid.

Let’s continue with my analysis:

“They require belief in logical contradictions. Virgin births, we now know, are possible, but the technology for the implantation of fertilized eggs did not exist two thousand years ago.” 

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1845400690&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThis is a weird remark, given the fact the bible says Mary WAS a virgin literally but this fact did not stop God from CREATING a child in her womb, something very LOGICAL for an all powerful God don’t you think? The Miracle was not that she was a virgin but that she gave birth to God’s own Word made flesh!

This is just an attempt to set up a false premise and destroy the premise by the “time setting” being off from modern times, as if ONLY man could perform this act. The problem is that Man must use God’s creation (The Sperm) to implant life, God DID NOT, HE USED HIS WORD (The Seed) IMPLANTED and made FLESH, Mary was simply the vessel of Obedience!

“The belief in the Virgin birth entails the belief that God miraculously impregnated Mary with Himself. Such a belief defies experience but not logic. The Virgin birth is conceivable (to make a bad pun), unlike the Trinity. “
It only defies HIS experience not the experiences of New Testament people so the issue created here, doesn’t hold water if one examines the evidence from scripture on the birth of Christ.
Likewise the Trinity Doctrine is said to be of Pagan Origin SIMPLY to make it easier to dismiss http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=074254351X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrout of hand RATHER than subject oneself to proper biblical analysis WHICH WOULD MEAN ACTUALLY STUDYING THE BIBLE AS TRUTH instead of using it to beat up the concept of God! 

You will notice that he BEGINS this by calling ANYTHING we believe a ‘Logical Contradiction’ or We say that a statement, or set of statements is logically consistent when it involves no logical contradiction.  A logical contradiction is the conjunction of a statement S and it’s denial not-S.   In logic, it is a fundamental law- the law of non contradiction- that a statement and its denial can not both be true at the same time. 
WITH THIS DEFINED AS OUR LOT, WE ARE AT THE BACK OF THE BUS BEFORE WE SPEAK, BUT IS IT SO, BECAUSE HE SAYS SO? 

I say the Christian Faith is the MOST Logical concept of all and Atheism the most Non-Logical concept of all. BUT that is a matter of my experience perspective because I have received the PROOF needed to know God personally they HAVE NOT! 

The Trinity is JUST as conceivable as any other biblical doctrine but because they cannot understand it, it becomes INCONCEIVABLE regardless of the evidence presented, to the Atheist, if we cannot FULLY explain it and prove it to them, it’s not so! The problem with this line of reasoning is it is http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1169756344&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifra two edged sword and they must explain FULLY why Evolution cannot be proved as well, even if they say they don’t have too.

READ THE FOLLOWING:

“The Trinity of the Godhead IS NOT PAGAN , TAKE IT FROM AN EX-PAGAN! Wrapping your mind around who God really is!”

 

“All arguments regarding these articles of faith are quite distinct from Rachel’s argument. “
“To defend these articles of faith, the best one can hope for is to show that they cannot be shown to be false. However, the consequence of arguing that logical contradictions may nevertheless be true, seems undesirable.”
THE BEST WE CAN HOPE FOR….really? Creation BEST fits all scientific methods http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=141431485X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrwhile evolution has failed miserably for decades to meet the full investigative skills of the Scientist but predisposed people refuse to see the facts and keep up the deceptive double standard! 

The Intelligent design of God: What’s the beef with a purposeful Creation?

Again he says: the consequence of arguing that logical contradictions may nevertheless be true, seems undesirable. ASSUMING that they are Logical Contradictions, this is a total Straw-Man diversion, the Christian Faith is NOT a Logical Contradiction at all, it’s doctrines are HIDDEN from the understanding of a darkened mind ON PURPOSE.

You must seek truth by FAITH ALONE, all you will get otherwise is surface revelation which will explain little about God, thus your left with religious fill in the blank dogmas that make little sense!

“Such a defense requires the abandonment of the very logical principles required to make any argument and is therefore self-annihilating. “
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0966665732&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrAccording to his misguided preconceived notion about Christian belief, but once one is opened to understanding it from the perspective of the Faith of God they are the MOST Logical of Principles, after all we are dealing with the Spiritual Realm not the Physical Realm. 

This alone places the debate under a different “observation Technique” altogether for the Scientist. If the person testing FAITH is unsaved then his conclusions will not be correct unless observed from the standpoint of the spiritual PERSON OF FAITH, that is only Logical. You wouldn’t want a blind person telling you about a sunset if they have never seen one, as you should want someone who understands God to explain him not a hypocrite WHO HATE THE CONCEPT OF GOD!

What if I wanted to test Atheism as to its validity, would I get any results testing its principles UNDER CHRISTIAN CONDITIONS? 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=002864266X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrOf Course not, I would have to test it under unbelieving conditions or my results are tainted, and neither can Atheists study Christianity under the assumption of Atheistic thinking, that pollutes the results. 
It defies Logic to think that Atheists make the rules up concerning God and his creation before proper investigation is ever done, and then claim a non-bias with a smile! If an Atheist TRULY wants to find the PROOF of God they must do it as a believer for their results to be revealed. Faith from God cannot be revealed to a dark heart that refuses to see truth as it is, “The God Kind Of Faith” opens into light what is now hidden by darkness!

The insurmountable Evidence of a creative act is everywhere while the made-up version of beginnings has the stage in Schools. This is the sole reason they fear COMPARATIVE TEACHING OF BOTH THEORY’S in school, because once the Truth is out the children will see the hypocrisy and cover-up.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0028639456&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrYou CANNOT possibly believe that OUR limited human minds could ever get the entire scope of God without HIS EYES of understanding opening our hearts and minds, that’s what the New Birth was for, to bring us from Darkness to Light. 
“The fact that arguments such as Rachel’s and those defending articles of religious faith are not empirical or resolvable by scientific methods hardly makes them equally matters of faith.”
 What is Empirical research? 
“It is a way of gaining knowledge by means of direct observation or experience. It is used to answer empirical questions, which must be precisely defined and answerable with data-theory regarding the topic under investigation. Based on this theory some statements, or hypotheses, will be proposed. 
From these hypotheses predictions about specific events are derived. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0205272533&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThese predictions can then be tested with a suitable experiment. Depending on the outcomes of the experiment, the theory on which the hypotheses and predictions were based will be supported or no.”
There is no reason to believe that the Doctrines of the Bible cannot be looked at by Science ONCE Faith has been released in the Human Heart a Scientist can then look properly at the Subject at hand no longer blinded by self imposed restrictions. 

God created our ability to reason http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0761922229&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrso it is only Logical that he requires us to use it. Reason however must be tempered with Faith Proof and Common Sense to arrive at the proper conclusion…UNBIASED.

 
Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge AS REQUIRED, but Evolutionists have never corrected their glaring errors in text books…WHY?.

Atheism’s Fall:The Demise of the Deniers of the Faith!

 

To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on gathering observable, empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning. This is not done with the concept of God at all, they do not examine
A scientific method consists of the collection of data through observation experimentation, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses, this was and is done by Creationists but their Data is ignored by unprofessional scientists of Evolution simply because it doesn’t support their personal beliefs. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1579106293&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThe Laws of logic are conceptual by nature and absolute. Being absolute they transcend space and time. They are not the properties of the physical universe (since they are conceptual) or of people (since people contradict each other, which would mean they weren’t absolute). So, how do you account for them?
 
 We both are acting on Faith but the Church of Jesus has God’s Proof contained in what they act on, Atheist’s are acting on mere assumptions about God, but nonetheless trusting in a future answer in science, or somewhere that will fill in the gaps and Missing Links for them. IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
The “Missing Links” Of Evolution by
Richard Massey
How is that different from SIMPLE faith? It isn’t, it’s word play, redefining the obvious http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0010XZ8OY&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrso it appears to be something else. A tactic used to dismiss and reshape the issue to appear one sided. But the facts involved once looked at from a PURELY SCIENTIFIC STANDPOINT cannot be denied for long!

Part 2 -The Doorway to Belief: How FAITH Opens the Proof of God!

In Part 2, I will deal with the previous part as too the Skeptic’s Dictionary definition of FAITH!
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0890513414&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrWhile it makes some good points about Religious ideas and their silliness, at the same time the Author makes similar silly comments and misconceptions available to view. I do not throw out the baby with the bath water as he seems to do on some concepts, concerning faith and the existence of God, so the concept of faith is viewed very differently by two viewpoints. 

This IN NO WAY disproves anything, it simply shows that we have completely different points of contrast concerning the same doctrine!
What I want to do here is to take apart what was said and put in a true biblical light, NOT a religious false light, this where he has bleed the two concepts together. I’m not saying that his points are not valid, they are but ONLY in the concept of man-made religion not real biblical Faith.
Religion as I have PROVED many times before is NOT a true reflection of the truth of biblical http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001BYLFFS&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrfaith simply because religion has ADOPTED the World’s definitions of Biblical concepts and thus twisted their meanings to be mush too simplistic and powerless from what God himself has defined them as!

Please read this first as it will make things clearer as to what true Christian Doctrine is concerning faith and how it applies to our Belief system, any definition of biblical Faith MUST include this wording or it fails to meet God’s requirements for Belief!
Notwithstanding the silly parody of Mark Twain: “Yet it was the school boy who said, Faith is believing what you know ain’t so. which is not to be taken as Gospel in any form, other statements in this Article are just as silly as Twain’s was.
“Faith is a non-rational belief in some proposition. A non-rational belief is one that is contrary to the sum of the evidence for that belief. A belief is contrary to the sum of the evidence if there is overwhelming evidence against the belief, e.g., that the earth is flat, hollow, or is the center of the universe. A belief is also contrary to the sum of the evidence if the evidence seems equal both for and against the belief, yet one commits to one of the two or more equally supported propositions.
 
What makes this silly is that there is absolutely no evidence that Biblical Faith is http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B000CNE0JW&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrNON-RATIONAL, sure…the religion men make these non-rational jumps all the time with its circular reasoning. But true biblical Faith isn’t defined in this way so his conclusions are false based upon a presupposition of guilt! He is doing here just what he accuses us of doing.

Second of all he assumes that “there is overwhelming evidence against the belief ” when there is not, there is nothing out there that would contradict biblical defined Faith. I mean sticking to it strictly speaking and not redefining it to fit your understanding. 
It is only FAIR to use the proper definition of Faith going forward is it not?
From Hebrews 11:1 
THIS IS WHAT FAITH IS, HOW IT WORKS AND WHAT IT CONTAINS:
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002VYHZTC&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrSo we can plainly see that NOW FAITH, present tense Faith is FILLED with SUBSTANCE, of what? THINGS hoped for, in other words the answer to our prayers is CONTAINED in our Faith as well as the PROOF or EVIDENCE needed to believe. This is far from his weak definition of faith from a man-written document, defined by man’s perceptions NOT God’s!

Now let’s see it from the Amplified bible which reveals the Greek Original:

NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”

Faith as defined in scripture contains the Contractual agreement between you and God for the things your praying for, The Title Deed of your ownership to them. It also contains the PROOF of their reality, all the Evidence needed to draw your conclusions as to their reality, all this is contained in a seed the size of a pepper speck!
Faith perceives as real fact what is not revealed to the senses, as yet. Not that it will not be revealed but that it is so-far unseen in the world. All the proof and Evidence that the skeptic needs is there inside “The God Seed of Faith” given when Obedience is fulfilled.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0310679664&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrGod requires FIRST obedience THEN He’ll reveal the details, just as Life requires you to live it before the details are revealed!
Don’t like that, Mr. Atheist, Agnostic or Skeptic? 
Tough, that’s how it works, and no amount of crying and amassing vast amounts of contrary evidence based upon a false assumption will change it. Life works this way and saying it shouldn’t won’t change the outcome in the least.
What if the evidence seems equal both for and against the belief, this is a loaded request because NO matter how much evidence is given they’ll explain it away and thus a quandary is created, this is like a self fulfilling prophecy for them! Its a trap we as believers fall into, chasing our tails around a straw man principle. 

If you think about it this creates the same issues for the skeptic, they just don’t let you know it, so it seems insurmountable to the believer, if they have just as much counter evidence to my evidence no one wins. BUT the real question all along is HOW good is their evidence, is it circumstantial or based on SOLID SCIENTIFIC FACT! There is a great difference between SOLID facts based in scientific study and “Factual innuendos” used in their “non existence”arguments to defer a response, stating FACTS like a machine gun at you as if those http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0801072603&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrfacts were part of the answer when most of the facts are unrelated to the question.

What about the statement: 
By Richard Spencer, Ph.D., associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at UC Davis and faculty adviser to the Christian Student Union.
“There is no God, and there can’t be a god; everything evolved from purely natural processes” cannot be supported by the scientific method and is a statement of faith, not science.”
 What’s wrong with this statement? He says The error or deception here is to imply that anything that is not a scientific statement, i.e., one supported by evidence marshaled forth the way scientists do in support of their scientific claims, is a matter of faith. To use ‘faith’ in such a broad way is to strip it of any theological significance the term might otherwise have.”

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0817014748&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThat is a total misreading of what he said in the first place, what he is saying is the statements made concerning Evolution and God are not based upon science but the fanciful speculations of those who BELIEVE in the natural explanations vs. the actual data available to prove that. There is NO evidence that PROVES ONCE AND FOR ALL THERE IS NO GOD OR THAT THE WORLD CAME INTO BEING BY PURELY NATURAL OCCURRENCES. 
What he’s saying is THEIR VIEW of faith and ours is different so they take things in “faithful assumption” that one day there will be the evidence to support, RATHER than rejecting it as unproven, that’s what “a statement of Faith” is in regards to science.
No side in this debate can say that, that in itself is dishonest and can easily be disproved simply by seeing the state of the debate as it is today. LOTS of things are taken on faith in this debate, Evolution is the biggest offender as the Missing Links are VAST and getting bigger, anyone who states in the Church that “Some things are just to be taken by Faith!” is being equally dishonest, as this form of “Faith taking” is not in any way biblical, no where in scripture does God require a “Brain Freeze” in regards to belief or for that matter knowledge, HE WANTS PEOPLE TO KNOW EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW CONCERNING WHAT THEY ARE TO BELIEVE, IF THEY NEED TO KNOW IT HE REVEALS IT! 
Where? 
In scripture, seek it out, ask the questions He’s a God of answers but according to FAITH not according to DOUBT and SKEPTICISM.
Again, the same bad defining is used here:
“Physicist Bob Park explains this difference in a way even the most devious casuist should understand. 

 “1) complete trust or confidence, and

2) strong belief in a religion based on spiritual conviction rather than proof.”

A scientist’s “faith” is built on experimental proof.

The two meanings of the word “faith,” therefore, are not only different, they are exact opposites.”

 He’s right by defining faith the way he does, they are different because he has assumed that we have complete “Trust and Reliance” upon NOTHING real, its just “Dreams and Mist” as others have stated. BUT that’s NOT TRUE, real faith REQUIRES the opposite to mean anything at all. This meaning is not the FAITH we are talking about here, but…. 

 rather than proof.” where is that found in Hebrews 11:1

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0521736285&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThis is what’s called a “Straw-man argument setting up a false idea and defeating it like it was a real issue in the first place, maybe he’s unaware that he’s done it because he’s parroting others who defined Faith the same way or maybe he is dishonest, I don’t know!
All I know is that NO Atheist site defines Faith in the proper way, is it because they fear their ideas can’t hold water under the true definition? Only your friendly Atheist knows for sure! 
Here’s more based on a false premise:
**************************************************************************************************
“an erroneous view of faith
If we examine Dr. Spencer’s claims, the error of his conflation of two senses of ‘faith’ should become obvious. He claims that the statement ‘there is no God and there can’t be a god; everything evolved from purely natural processes’ is a statement of faith. There are three distinct statements here. 
One, ‘there is no God’. 
Two, ‘there can’t be a god’. 
And three, ‘everything evolved from purely natural processes’.
Dr. Spencer implies that each of these claims is on par with such statements as ‘there is a God’, ‘Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior’, ‘Jesus’s mother was a virgin’, http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1419653067&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr‘a piece of bread may have the substance of Jesus Christ’s physical body and blood’, ‘God is one being but three persons’, and the like.
The statement ‘there cannot be a god’ is not an empirical statement. Anyone who would make such a claim would make it by arguing that a particular concept of god contains contradictions and is, therefore, meaningless.
For example, to believe that ‘some squares are circular’ is a logical contradiction. Circles and squares are defined so as to imply that circles can’t be square and squares can’t be circular.
James Rachels, for one, has argued that god is impossible, but at best his argument shows that the concepts of an all-powerful God and one who demands worship from His creations are contradictory. 
The concept of worship, Rachels argues, is inconsistent with the traditional Judeo-Christian God concept.”
 *****************************************************************************************
 This argument is nothing new, and shows a complete ignorance of true Doctrine in the Bible, mixing the facts up with FALSE doctrine doesn’t make his arguments any better. How could we have an erroneous view of Faith when he’s using an erroneous definition to start with?!

How can the concept of Worship be inconsistent with our view of God? It can’t, if http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001PO650O&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifryou have revealed to you the God of scripture but that CANNOT happen unless your FIRST SAVED, FIRST THE OBEDIENCE THEN THE UNDERSTANDING.

Are we working on Blind Faith? CLICK HERE to find out!


All understanding outside of biblical faith is limited greatly by a darkened mind controlled by the shadow of sin, now, I know; they don’t think their thinking is darkened but that doesn’t change the fact it is! My mind was so polluted by wrong thinking concerning God’s Love I wouldn’t know truth if it stood right in front of me singing Dixie! 

Ephesians 4:18
“Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:….”
 Romans 1:21
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1566393973&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
What about our Worship and our God? Does how we define our God (The Doctrine) even matter when we worship him?
“The concept of worship, Rachels argues, is inconsistent with the traditional Judeo-Christian God concept.”
Mark 12:33
“And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
Sounds to me as if God requires a whole LOT more than religious worship affords, our worship of God is to be ALL OR NOTHING, our whole person is to be involved not a once a week, and Holidays worship. So it would seem that HOW we define our God is as much a part of us as we are to be of him. So the doctrine comes with the package.

“The statement ‘there cannot be a god‘ is not an empirical statement. Anyone who would make such a claim would make it by arguing that a particular concept of god contains contradictions and is, therefore, meaningless.”
Would that same Argument be in force if I found the many contradictions of http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0984489126&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrEvolutionary theory to make Evolution meaningless? Of course not, it only applies to us not them! Good reasoning applies to every argument no matter the side but BAD reasoning knows no bound of dishonest approach. And to often there are bad reasoning’s on both sides, with or without knowledge of it.

The whole idea of their use of the Trinity in arguments offends my knowledge of God greatly, not because it weakens my position but because I know as a former Pagan that it IS NOT a Pagan doctrine at all, pagans worship TRIADS not trinities the concept of ONE God in Three persons distinct from each other yet one in nature is unheard of in Paganism. So the matter of its incompatibility with Christian Worship is a false premise.
