Have you ever heard an unbeliever say, “I don’t care if I go to Hell”? I was always taken aback when I would hear that phrase, because all my life I have been brought up in churches that teach about hell, and some preachers described it so vividly that you would have thought they had been there! I knew from a young age that is not a place I would want to go for even one second, let alone for eternity.
It is very unsettling when I hear someone say, “God can do anything.” Is this truly the case? If that is so, then you serve an illogical god that does not exist. Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you want to serve the one true God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, then you are going to have to change your thoughts about who He is.
At lunch today the topic of “Contradictions in the Bible” came up. It was so tempting to get into each and every one of the supposed contradictions and defend them one by one, but there was a deeper issue at stake. The real issue was, “Is God’s word our Authority?” I was amazed as the conversation kept coming back to that very issue. What is even more interesting is that EVERY conversation will keep coming back to that one issue! Whether you are speaking with someone about radioactive dating or the moon landing, the fundamental question we must examine first is, “Is God’s word our Authority?” Sounds strange, doesn’t it. What would that question have to do with radioactive dating? The short end of it is that our thoughts themselves, our senses that observe our world, and our very ability to reason prove that the Christian God of the Bible exists!
