“I Need More Evidence!”


“I’m sorry, but I am not convinced by your arguments, and I find myself unable to believe something without evidence. I’m sure if there is a supreme being as described by the average Christian, he or she would know that my “belief” was false and based on fear tactics. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Also, being an atheist just means you don’t believe in a god, other than that atheists are as different from each other as strict Geek (sic) Orthodox adherents and snake handlers.”

From time to time I get something in my inbox telling me that someone has made a comment about one of my videos. The paragraph above is the latest of these efforts and was motivated by a video I did some time back reviewing a website called “Infidels.org.” As one can imagine, the website is dedicated to denigrating religion in general, especially Christianity, and for the average atheist to bask in the glory of their supposed superior intellect. After all, who but a complete ignoramus would be so gullible as to believe that there is a God and, even worse, that He came to earth and died and rose again.

Irresistible Grace


“I” stands for the next doctrine to spring up called Irresistible Grace. This is the belief that the elect (those chosen by God) are going to be saved whether they desire to be or not. This would mean that a man could hate God; even worship Satan, and still be allowed to enter into heaven. Joshua told us that we have the ability to choose whom we will serve (Joshua 24:15). Peter told those on Pentecost to save themselves (Acts 2:40).

Limited Atonement


Unconditional Election eventually led to the doctrine of Limited Atonement. This is our “L” in the TULIP doctrine. This is simply the belief that Christ only died for those select few whom God had chosen. Thus the atonement for sins given by his death was “limited”. This doctrine is easily proven false. First, the Bible says that Christ died for the ungodly (Romans 5:6). Limited Atonement says that He only died for the godly.John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the “world”. God did not only love a select few but all men (1 Timothy 2:42 Peter 3:9).
