“Don't let anyone fool you by using senseless arguments. These arguments may sound wise, but they are only human teachings. They come from the powers of this world and not from Christ.” Colossians 2:8 Contemporary English Version
There are many in this life that would challenge the believer with human arguments. Atheists pride themselves in their unbelief. Their words are powerless and useless in the face of the truth of God. They have chosen to not follow Christ because they desire to rule themselves. They do not want to have to answer to any higher authority. If that were truly the case one would think they would be against all government rule and become anarchists as well.
Some people who choose not to believe in God have a desire to make true believers out to be lunatics and fools. God cannot be mocked for as the scripture states, “What you sow, so shall you reap” (Galatians 6:7). Just because they don’t believe a word of the Bible doesn’t keep its’ truth from coming to fruition. Don’t allow these babblers to influence you in any way. Immerse yourself all the more in God’s word and turn a deaf ear to their inane ramblings that amount to nothing more than idle verbiage, spoken for their own personal gratification. If you doubt the existence of God, open your heart and mind and ask Him today if He truly is who He says He is. If you are sincere, then you will find out what billions of others across the globe have found to be true … that God is real and Christ really did die to pay for your sins.
Many false religions have adopted man-made approaches to solve life’s problems. The only problem with these is that they completely disregard God. They credit humanity for providing the answers to life’s issues. To avoid succumbing to these heretical teachings we must keep our eyes focused on Christ and study the Word of God. Knowing the truth is meaningless unless you put that knowledge into action. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
