    More irrelevant psychobabble pushed forward by people who have nothing better to do than to come up with reasons why, or why not, something exists. The fact that we have the bible, something that men on their own are unable to put together without a miraculous intervention and guide to complete it, proves God exists. But that is not the only thing that points to the existence of God. One does not need to look too far in nature to see additional evidence.

    You should be thankful when other attack your beliefs. They are actually causing you to be blessed by God.
    Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Hi & Thank You David for the warm welcome! I live in the US, but I've noticed a lot of criticism regarding Christianity... Christian bashing is what I am sensing. Especially in forums.... It is horrible! Nasty remarks... atheists who will not tolerate even a "I pray for you" or "Bless you" I know I am far-far from being a excellent example Christian, but I thought "society" was supposed to be tolerant! Society wants to tolerate obnoxious beliefs and...

    Oh, the joy that can dwell in the lives of the saints when our understanding of the work of God in us is clearly seen in His Word. The learning of the greatest lessons come the hardest and the latest, all due to instruction in patience, from which of the Lord’s provisions His Spirit uses to “conform” believers the most in bringing forth the most pleasant of His fruit that manifests the strength of faith—joy!

    "Fortune cookie" runs rampant across many denominational divides. We rip a verse out of it's context and apply if directly to ourselves, with no regard to its original meaning or to its original audience, e.g., 2 Chronicles 7:14 is not addressing the United States of America....

    Hi again CAC, a couple of quotes come to mind as well, one from the Lord, and one that echoes what the Lord had to say in John 16:32-33 from missionary/wife/mother/author, Elisabeth Elliot (did you ever catch her radio broadcast by any chance?).

    The Lord said:





    And as I said above, Elliot makes the same observation as she echoes Jesus' words about how we are to live in this world. She says, "The secret is Christ in me, not me in a different...

    I agree with that. Sproul says "The Bible does not take on some special magic that changes basic literary patterns of interpretation, " and he is correct. Often the Hebrew and Greek languages take on a kind of mystical connotation for some people and they see all kinds of things that just are not there. God chose people to write the biblical text, and people write using grammar, in styles understood by their peers....
