What if there is no God? Can Man live without God?

Published

What does it matter whether you believe in God?

Well, let’s think this through.

Seriously, let’s examine this rationally and see the practical implications of your choice. 

Ravi Zacharias, in his book Can Man Live Without God?, makes the most compelling and rational case for faith in God that I have ever seen. His critical thinking, commitment to logic and practical answers make this so much more than an appeal to religion or blind faith. The implications of belief in the existence of a loving God are huge and life-or-death profound.

Following are some screen shots I took from his book. All of my comments in red ink, his are in black.

Look below at the chilling quote from Hitler that is posted at Auschwitz death camp. 

Here’s how Ravi approaches the basic idea of God. 

 

“Word Games” lead to “Crimes of Logic.” 

If the Concept is faulty the Conclusion will be too. 

Concept, Application, Function:

These are the modes of thinking that I teach in my book The Acorn Principle and in my seminars. Concept, Application, Function.

The Concept is the main idea, the Premise, if we get that wrong then everything else will be wrong. If there is a flaw in your logic then no matter how compelling your argument may be, it will not stand up to scrutiny.  

For example: “Open Borders are Compassionate.” Faulty concept. So all the attempts to rationalize it, justify it and ignore key outcomes from it will ultimately fail. It’s just not an idea that can work. Even worse, “Police are no longer needed.” Not true. 

Or, “People change the climate.” No, people may be able to influence the climate, but the forces of Nature are so massive and universal as to be overwhelming, more powerful than our ability to alter them. Granted, we should be good stewards of our Earth, but Nature has more power than we do. Every great disaster that was supposed to kill us all has abated and Nature has absorbed the impact quite well. Climate has always changed and we cannot stop it. A stable climate would kill us all. And fossil fuel is a gift, not a curse. 

Here’s another: “Kids need to realize that gender is discretionary. You can choose your sex.” As Senator Biden once said, “That’s a bone-head idea.” He was referring to something else but it applies here. Gender is a fact. Nature rules. There are mutated conditions where gender conflict occurs in people but it does not change their gender. If others are asked to ignore reality in order to make them more comfortable ALL of the people will know that they are denying reality. It becomes an enabler’s game but it cannot endure. Heterosexuality is required for humanity to survive. 

Try this one: “White Supremacy is the greatest threat to our country.” Bone-head mentality is required if one is to accept this idea. First off, white skin is not supreme to anything, nor is brown, black or other tones of skin. Second, there is no organized movement of white supremacy. There are isolated groups like Nazis and Skin Heads but they don’t have any significant influence, especially when compared to Black Lives Matter and Antifa. If the perpetuation of racism in America were left up to white people it would die almost overnight. It is the misguided leaders of the black community who perpetuate the racial division with hate and blame and victim-mindset.

America has been infiltrated by Marxist organizers who are aggressively pressing for changes to our language, our culture, our laws, our churches, our schools and our lives. In the year 2020 they conducted the worst riots, murders, vandalism and destruction in our country’s history since the Civil War. The Sixties were nothing compared to this. January 6 was relatively mild* when compared to the murders, fires and damage in Portland, Minneapolis, and other cities across America. The violent push continues now in 2021 and radicals are getting elected and appointed at all levels of society. (*with the tragic exception of unarmed demonstrator Ashli Babbitt being shot to death by Capitol Police.) 

Next comes new regulations, rules, laws and policies that will separate us by race, age, politics, language and gender.

The plan that worked for Hitler is now in place in the USA.

Our economy is eroding fast, our resources are becoming unavailable, and people don’t trust each other. So, since chaos has been put in place, change is possible.

If you are Evil and want to take control, what do you do?

First you stoke hatred of your largest target (rational, conservative white people), then you get children to accept guilt and become spies against their parents and teachers, next you restrict public expression and freedom of speech, then you demonize belief in God and churches, then you register everyone and sort them in to categories of compliant vs rebellious, then you begin to imprison the offenders. Tell me my logic is wrong!

This is the path our country is on today. We MUST reverse the course, reject the stupidity and obvious irrationality, and more importantly, we must embrace belief in a loving Creator. We must celebrate and popularize religious expression and gatherings.

Concept: America is a country founded on belief in God. A good God.

Application: Our churches, schools, public places and institutions must support and encourage faith but never dictate it.

Function: We must become good people. Help our neighbors. Be problem solvers and stop hating, labeling and blaming others. 

We must Make America Good Again.

This is Exactly How You Destroy America – And It Has All Been Planned

The Final Act of the Anti-America 60’s radicals

It has taken a long time to get America to where we are today. Decades and decades. And it was all planned out.

In the middle of the 20th century the average American was patriotic. They loved America. They knew history and studied reading, writing, and arithmetic. They were not consumed with folly.

In order to destroy America, they first had to destroy Americans. And thus it began.

Sow seeds of doubt as to the legitimacy of Christianity.

Declare capitalism evil at its core.

Focus all attention on the sins of our past such a slavery, rather than the fact that we figured it out, repented, and abolished it.

Create a permanent minority under-class that will never get out of poverty and can be counted on to vote for those who constantly promise that they will get them out of that poverty, while knowing that they will forever be there.
Dumb Americans down by taking over the schools and universities and focusing on courses such as feminist studies rather than history, philosophy, economics, math and science and other traditional studies.

Create an all consuming culture of amusement with movies, concerts, sporting events, and debauchery. Make young women consumed with the Kardashians and the Bachelor while young men are consumed with sports and video games.
Fill the minds of Americans with degradation and all things unholy.

Hide the great American history from them and instead tell them that they are racist, sexist, transphobia, homophobic, and every other ist and phobic that you can think of. Shame them with invented sins that rack them with guilt.
Install a press that rivals Pravda with its disinformation, hiding the truth and telling us that lies are really the truth.

Undermine the Constitution.

Turn people against the police and military.

That’s how you destroy America.

It is time to wake up, my friends. This has been 70 years coming. The radical left, Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Elizabeth Warren, and Dianne Feinstein were the radical anti-Americans of the 60s and 70s. This is their final hoorah to destroy the country they’ve hated since the anti-America 60’s.

Now they control the United States government and our economy. They are destroying it with every policy every single day. No need to give you the litany of ways in which they are imploding our country for their own political gain of the great reset. One simply needs to look around and pay attention.

Today is not a day for the faint of heart. Today is a day to pray. To work. To declare the truth. To stand for all that is good and right with America. Freedom. Capitalism. Faith.

Fight the good fight. Stand for what is right. Declare the truth. Love God and serve others.

In These Troubled Times, Stay Optimistic

The more challenges you overcome, the more confidence you have that you can do more

Published

on

With what Biden and company are doing to the nation and to the world it is easy to feel down. Dr. Terry Paulson’s classic book,  The Optimism Advantage: 50 Simple Truths to Transform Your Attitudes and Actions into Results, however, isn’t just about managing your attitudes. It’s about shaping your world in a way that promotes optimism, energy, opportunity, and simple living.

Making a strong stand for simpler living, Dr. Paulson writes, “Far too many people spend years gathering more things to fit into increasingly bigger houses only to spend their later years getting rid of things and craving simplicity and satisfying relationships. Why wait? Claim a little more simplicity now; avoid the wasted cost and stressful aggravation involved in competing for who can own the most toys and the biggest mansion.”

Commitments in Action

The Optimism Advantage focuses on putting commitments into action. Optimists live “action imperative” and have a continual bias towards action. Instead of over-analyzing what to do, or lamenting their situation, optimists get busy doing.

Paulson shared a story of a housewife who was overwhelmed by the clutter and her commitment to bring sanity to her living space. She picked a room, set her kitchen timer for 5 minutes, and got started bringing order to her life.

She continued for another ten minutes, after the bell went off, and was proud of going beyond what she had planned. She was pleased with her results and kept increasing her time commitment. She took back her world one room at a time.

Overcoming Adversity

Optimism isn’t motivational hype; it comes from a track record of overcoming adversity and challenges one day, one choice at a time. The more challenges you overcome, the more confidence you have that you can do more.
