"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

"There Is None That Seeketh After God"

“There are a lot of atheists that wanted to find God. I should add myself to that list…Atheist do not _deny_ God, as if we know God exist and it is real.” –Daniel

Romans 3:11 says, “There is none that seeketh after God.” Now I am sure you will try to say, “There you go. The Bible can’t be true because it says that no one seeks after God, and I looked for Him for years.” Well, the truth is that you were looking for God to meet you on your terms; you were not looking to meet God on His terms. You were looking for God to accept you as you are and expect nothing in return. You wanted to have both God and your sin; and when you found out that was not a possibility, you chose your sin instead of God.

You see, there is only one thing that keeps people apart from God. That one thing is called sin. Until we come to the realization that we are indeed sinners in need of a Savior, we cannot truly know God. John 3:19 says, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” Simply said, your love for your sin is what keeps you from knowing God in His fullness.

The “light” that John is referring to is the Lord Jesus Himself, along with the Gospel truth that He preached. The “darkness” that John is referring to is anything but the truth of God’s Word. You don’t have to be an atheist to prove this verse to be true. If you believe anything contrary to God’s Word, or if you fail to believe God’s Word in its entirety, you have proven John 3:19 to be true—you have chosen to believe a lie rather than the truth of God’s Word because you love your sin.

In order to really know God, you must take down the barrier of sin. Matthew 6:24 says, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.” One cannot serve both God and sin. God is against sin, and sin is against God—the two do not go together. You have to choose either God or your sin, but you cannot choose both.

If you want to know God—I mean really know Him—you must do away with all sin. That, my friend, is what we call repentance. On this blog, I do not try to convince people that God is real because I am already convinced that everyone already knows that; I simply show people how they can have a right relationship with Him. And in order to have a right relationship with Almighty God, you must turn from your sin and follow after Him.

If you will repent of your sin and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord of your life, He will forgive you for every sin you have ever committed and give you everlasting life. Micah 7:19 says that, if you will turn from your sin and follow Him, He will have compassion on you and “cast all your sins into the depths of the sea.” Please let go of your sin and trust Jesus before it’s eternally too late for you.

  1. @Tommy,

    I assume it fully represents your own theological believes regarding salvation, sin, etc. Should I start discussing about theology with you? I don't think so, so there is not too much I could say about it.

    So, you are free to believe whatever you like about ethereal things.

    But if you start asserting thinks about reality that are at odds with the real world then I do have some things to say, like:

    > On this blog, I do not try to convince people
    > that God is real because I am already
    > convinced that everyone already knows that;

    How do you know that? When you say "everyone", Do you mean "everyone in this planet"? Which real piece of evidence (that anyone could recognize as valid) do you have?

    Of course you could point me to a Biblical quote that says so, but, sorry, that is not a valid proof, because saying my-holy-book-is-real doesn't put you in any better position than a Muslim saying the same for Quran; and saying but-I-do-know/believe-it-is-real also doesn't make it so, neither for a Muslim saying the same thing.

    By the way, if I make this assertion:

    "I do not try to convince people that God *is not real* because I am already convinced that everyone already knows that"

    Would you accept my word as true?

    If not: Which evidence should I provide you to show my assertion is true?


    After you have an answer for the previous questions regarding the piece of evidence I need to show you... Now: Could you show me the same kind of evidence for your own assertion?

    Remember: the Bible says Moses made a stick to transform into a snake, but also the Pharaoh wizards made the same! So, how do we "know" Moses "truth" was superior to the other? Because his snake could do something the other couldn't, and was not just Moses saying so. That is physical evidence that matters, and everyone around saw it (in the Biblical story).

    So, unless you have something to show that is better evidence that the same claim any other religion could do, your own claims are not a bit more credible than theirs, and I could bet you know the other religions claims are false.
