“GOD, RELIGION, ATHEISM - ‘SO WHAT?’ ”
- A Message to the Indifferent -
(posted: January 2012)
* All scripture references are from the New King James Version (NKJV) of the Bible, unless otherwise noted.
“... they aren’s atheists either. They simply shrug off God, religion, or the ever-trendy search for meaning and purpose. Their attitude could be summed up as
“So what?’ “ 1
“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”
“... a more openly secular America as people fess up to being faithless.” 1
“44% don’t spend time seeking ‘eternal wisdom’; 46% never wonder whether they will go to heaven.” 1
2. They speak idly everyone with his neighbor; ...
“Instead of followers of Jesus, they’re followers of 5,000 unseen ‘friends’ on Facebook or Twitter.” 1
3. May the Lord cut off flattering lips, and the tongue that
speaks proud things.
“... a culture that celebrates an idea that all truths are equally valid, he says. Personal experience and personal authority matter most.” 1
4. Who have said “With our tongue we will prevail; our lips are
our own, who is lord over us?”
“A decade later, 80% of her clients choose her carefully God-free (marriage) ceremony. The only faith they pledge is to each other.” 1
“... nearly half said they believed ‘nothing in particular’.“ 1
6, 7. 6 The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver tried in a
furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 ... You shall
preserve them from this generation forever.
“Scripture and tradition are quaint irrelevant artifacts.” 1
8. ... when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
“We’re just focusing on the party.” 1
[The scripture relative to the news article contrasts the destiny of those who fear and
honor God with those who ignore Him.]
“For them the Almighty is off the radar like some tiny foreign country they know exists but never think about.” 1
[Contrasts God’s filling the whole earth rather than “some tiny foreign country.”]
