Atheists Form a Support Group for Non-Believing Pastors

Yes, you read that headline right. Claiming that “it is nearly impossible” for clergy to leave their faith and their jobs, the founders, Richard Dawkins, and Dan Barker, are offering a “true sanctuary, a congregation of those of us who have replaced faith and dogma with reason and human well-being.” Why would it be hard to leave the clergy if you don’t believe? If you don’t believe, wouldn’t you be engaging in a woeful waste of time?

If you had been a believer, and knew that not believing would mark you for a devil’s hell, now that you no longer believe, wouldn’t it be easy? I mean, what do you have to lose now… other than eternal life in heaven. Oh yeah, that. Well, OK, but now you don’t believe in that kind of thing, right? So, you are free! Right?

Well, the Truth will set you free. (John 8:32) And the Truth is… you are gonna shake and bake, Jack. Them’s the breaks. I’m sorry to sound snide, but this is just stupid! I seriously doubt that ANY so-called pastor, or cleryman, who was EVER truly a believer suddenly just no longer believes! I question whether they ever truly did believe in the first place. But, that’s just me!

Jesus said, “… Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8) The Amplified Bible makes it a bit clearer to us, “However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?” It is one thing to believe, it is another to be “persistent” in believing!

So, what we need is persistence, “stick-to-itivness” (if that’s a word!) If you are going to believe, then believe! No half measures, no “well, I believe except for those pesky miracles…” Just go for it!

God’s Word: The Universal Constant!

Joel Osteen, recently was a guest on “Piers Morgan Tonight,” on CNN. Morgan pressed him to renounce the truths of the Bible with regard to what the Bible says about homosexuality. Pastor Osteen, praise God, stuck with the Word of God, saying that 200 years from now, the Bible will still say that homosexuality is a sin.

“But shouldn’t the Scripture be dragged kicking and screaming into the modern age?” Morgan said. “Not really everything in the Scripture is, in my view, conducive to modern life. Like everything else, doesn’t it have to move with the times?”

It always amazes me that people think that the Bible should “change” to reflect the times. I realize that this thinking is based in their ignorance of God’s Word, but, it would seem that anyone that understood that a believer, that is a TRUE believer, must believe and know that God wrote the Word of God, the Bible, and it is “settled forever in Heaven!” (Psalms 119:89) The world may change, but the Bible doesn’t change! It is the universal constant!

Ever since Einstein, people have believed and taught that the speed of light is the one universal constant. But recent scientific experiments have now cast doubt on that belief! The Bible is, in fact, the one universal constant the we can believe, and trust!

What is says will never change. You may choose NOT to believe what it says, but IT will ever be the same!

God is true, let every man be a liar! (Romans 3:4)
