Some of This and Some of That

Philosophy, or the love of wisdom, has been with us since the dawn of creation. Man cannot help but be an inquisitive creature who is constantly attempting to understand the environment that surrounds him. Perhaps the clearest example of this urge to know is the exploration of space. Nothing is more challenging than understanding what is "out there." In the same way, the quest to find God has occupied man's thoughts for all of his existence. Some have sought to do so through the Scriptures, and rightly so. Others, however, do so primarily through philosophy. It is this latter group that has gone off the rails, albeit in many cases with good intentions.

Taking an Eraser to History

I recently heard about a Spike Lee documentary about 9/11 that "removed interviews with conspiracy theorists." As I read that phrase, I was struck with the fact that this action is such a microcosm of our society and its insistence on erasing anything that may "hurt its feelings." To be clear, I am not a supporter of people who hold to such conspiracies as that 9/11 was an inside job or that George Bush caused the events that took place on that day in order to place us on  a constant war footing. That being said, however, I am neither a supporter of this society's continuous attempt at silencing anyone who dares to contradict the party line.

The Irrationality of Atheism


The nonsensical character of atheism is in full display all around us on a daily basis. The idea that the universe has no purpose, that it all came about by random chance (out of nothing, to boot!) and all on its own, that the process of evolution is unthinking, unfeeling, and yet it accomplish what we see today can only lead to one conclusion: in the words of John Macarthur "what kind of idiocy is that"?

The idiocy of atheism leads to all kinds of perversions and lunacy. Our demented society has gone down the tubes at an astonishing rate. Think of the urge for society to be "inclusive" of the LGBTQ+ lifestyle (I know, to talk about a lifestyle when we discuss a group of people represented by such disparate descriptions is incoherent, but that just comes to show how demented society truly has become). Catering to a tiny percentage of our population has become the sacred mantra of our age. It really is impossible to understand the infatuation that our society has with this perversion. Is there any better proof of the fact that our world has lost its collective mind?

When you watch and listen to the video above, think about the fact that you could have been among those left to their own devices and believe such astonishing foolishness. You could be among those who make it their purpose to convince you that there is no purpose to our existence. Were it not for God's grace and giving us a renewed mind, we too would be apt to believe such balderdash. Two things come to mind in light of that fact: we need to be extremely grateful to God for his mercy and we need to pray for those who are still in the dark.
