Introduction

How can Christians be so sure they’re right and everyone else is wrong? Isn’t that being exclusive or arrogant?

  • Exclusive – Not shared: available to only one person or group.
  • Arrogant – Having or showing the insulting attitude of people who believe that they are better, smarter, or more important than other people.

What do people say?

Christianity is exclusive. If Christianity is true, then

INTRODUCTION – LOOKING FOR A GOOD CAUSE?

If Whatever Begins to Exist Has a Cause – In nature, there are no instances of something coming into existence out of nothing. When scientists believed that the universe had always existed, they did not dispute “whatever begins to exist has a cause.” Now many do.

Then the Universe Had a Beginning – “Almost everyone now believes that the Universe, and time itself, had a beginning at the big Bang.” (Stephen Hawking). In the Big Bang theory, the universe (time, space and matter) came into being in an instant in a cosmic explosion. The effects of this have been scientifically observed (stars and plants are rapidly moving away from each other and from a common origin). In other words,

INTRODUCTION – YOU MEAN IT MAY NOT BE WRONG…

If It Isn’t Clear? – I go even further back than that. Ten years after The Great War, as we used to call it. Before we knew enough to number them. You miss that kind of action, sir? No, I miss that kind of clarity. (Wabash/Houseman and Higgins/Robertson – Three Days of the Condor)

If You Don’t Get Caught? – Boy, what is it with you people? You think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth? (Turner/Redford – Three Days of the Condor)

If It’s A Gray Area? – You are such a boy scout. You see everything in black and white. No, no, no! Not black and white Ritter, right and wrong! (Ritter and Ryan/Ford – Clear and Present Danger)

If… – What are some other ways that we

The practice of questioning authority may not have been “made in America” but we’ve done what we can to make it “new and improved.” From the declaration of self-evident truths that challenged a dominant world power and launched a revolution, to the civil rights movement that made possible a new birth of freedom for repressed minorities, Americans have prided themselves in questioning long-held customs, traditions and beliefs in the name of liberty, freedom and human rights.

In many instances,

INTRODUCTION

Pro-Choice – A political view that believes abortion should continue to be legal and accessible. Pro-choice is not necessarily pro-abortion, but merely being in support of a woman’s having the option available (Urban Dictionary).

Pro-Life – Advocating the legal protection of human embryos and fetuses, especially by favoring the outlawing of abortion on the ground that it is the taking of a human life (The Free Dictionary).

THE BASIC FACTS OF LIFE – THE ABC’S

As Long As The Earth Endures

Screenshot (1691)

As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”  (Genesis 8:22, NIV 1984).

My Musings – “As long as the earth endures.”  If the threat of global warming is as precarious as many claim, then this can only mean that “the end is near.”  Until that time, the general pattern of  “seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.” That is the promise of God Almighty.  There are some tribulation judgments recorded in Revelation that very well could accompany global warming.  But the signs we should really be looking for are not how many average degrees the earth’s temperature has increased over how short a period of time.  The signs to pay attention to were given by Jesus in His Olivet Discourse.  And like “birth pains,” many of these signs are increasing in frequency and intensity.

My Advice – Make sure you are ready for a “change in the seasons.”  For “as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came.”  (Matthew 24:37–39, NIV 1984).
