If Jesus Never Came.

If Jesus Never Came. part 1 by Anthony Smith

2 Peter 2:4-2:11

If Jesus Never Came. part 1. A look at, Athiest, Agnostice, Humanist and Freethinkers. There are many people that call themselves atheist, to me an atheist is an agnostic without a clue. I believe if we took a poll on atheist from ever major war, we would find out many Atheist were turned into Agnostics and Agnostics were turned into believers. An atheist is; One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods. An agnostic is;One who believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God.
One who is skeptical about the existence of God but does not profess true atheism. Why are Athiest, Agnostice, Humanist, Freethinkers and the like so preoccupied about proveing that God and His Son Jesus dont exist? Is there something in the Bible that scares them so much that we have become a threat to them? It doesnt take much not to believe in something, but it takes all to believe in God. Christianity, in mankind, is not perfect by any means. The Apostil Paul stated, “Let us go on to perfection...”Heb 6:1. We disagree many times over many subjects but we all have come to the agreement that we can all disagree. I think that is pretty civil of us, dont you? Well lets put it this way, If God didnt exist then neither would, Athiest, Agnostice, Humanist or Freethinkers. Now lets take a look at the world as If Jesus Never Came. An atheist states that God or gods dont exist, this is not entirely the truth on their part. An Atheist doesnt believe in the Theory of Darwin so that makes him a believer in a higher power. They believe, or are interested, in spirituallity and sense spirituallity is a religious term they lie to themselves. So we will look at it from that point of view. The question that these people should be asking is “Who created religion?” Athieism, Agnosticeism, Humanism or Freethinkers are terms that constitute a religion. Religion is actually;
Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe.
A personal or institutionalized system grounded in such belief and worship.
The life or condition of a person in a religious order.
A set of beliefs, values, and practices based on the teachings of a spiritual leader.
A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion. Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. In this statement the Bible speaks not a word about religion or worship, you would be, in fact, hard pressed to find any mention of these subjects untill Chapter 4. A covenant relationship didnt arrive untill chapter 6. Again religion is still not mentioned, so what was God doing with man? He was making a pact, a promise and a covenant, not religion. Religion came into effect begining in chapter 10 with Nimrod. The Hebrew name Nimrod means "let us rebel," given by his contemporaries to Nimrod as one who ever had in his mouth such words to stir up his band to rebellion. Nimrod subverted the existing patriarchal order of society by setting up a chieftainship based on personal valor and maintained by aggression. [Fausset] This is an athesist comment; ”I am interested in spirituality, and I have a general interest in the history of Christianity and the bible. I find most of the active Christians I meet to be nice people, and I am fascinated by how they twist and avoid the truth in order to claim the Bible is somehow holy. I also see it mis-used often in Politics, and  I always urge people to read the bible, line for line, so in that respect we have the same goals. I would love for bible reading to be compulsury in public schools, line for line, without Christian spin.” Most athesist fall under the catigory in religionism; A state of often extreme religious ardour; {Fiery intensity of feeling.} Morris notes, "The essential identity of the various gods and goddesses of Rome, Greece, India, Egypt, and other nations with the original pantheon of the Babylonians is well established. [In fact], Nimrod himself was apparently later deified as the chief god (’Merodach’ or ’Marduk’) of Babylon.(Rom. 1:23)And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Babylon means the “Gate of God.” The citizens of Babylon had rejected the knowledge of the true God. Therefore, we should expect the creation of a false religion as part of their dubious cultural achievements. Again, the Bible speaks of "mystery Babylon," that is, of the reality symbolized by the earthly city, saying that it is "the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth" (Rev. 17:5). This refers, as do the ideas of prostitution and abomination throughout the Bible, to false religion.Turn to any book on astrology and you will find that it was the Chaldeans (another name for the inhabitants of Babylon) who first developed the zodiac by dividing the sky into sections and giving meanings to each on the basis of the stars that are found there. A person’s destiny is said to be determined by whatever section or "sign"he is born under. [THE TOWER OF BABEL AND THE CONFUSION OF LANGUAGES] by Lambert Dolphin
So as you can see in just the 1st couple of Chapters in Genisus, that it was man that started religion and not God. God, in the begining of man had to deal with rebellion and hatred of His athourity by man, because of the Fall of Adam. Remember the meaning of religion,A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion. Quote”I am fascinated by how they twist and avoid the truth in order to claim the Bible is somehow holy.”Unquote Holy means; 1.Regarded with particular reverence or respect: blessed, hallowed, sacred. 2. Protected from violation or abuse by custom, law, or feelings of reverence: inviolable,Protected from violation or abuse by custom, law, or feelings of reverence Belonging to, derived from, or associated with a divine power; sacred.
Regarded with or worthy of worship or veneration; revered: a holy book.
Living according to a strict or highly moral religious or spiritual system; saintly: a holy person.
Specified or set apart for a religious purpose: a holy place.
Solemnly undertaken; sacrosanct: a holy pledge.
Regarded as deserving special respect or reverence: Athiest, Agnostice, Humanist, Freethinkers very seldom attack The New Testiment for they see the Old Testiment as a key to destroy all beliefe. War in the old Testiment is a key target of many people. They fail to understand that it was mans lack of understanding, compassion and duty to all mankind that caused war.
James 4:1, puts it this way; From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Lusts is the key word here. Man in the, Old as well as the New Testiment, even continueing on today, is the primary cause of death and destruction. In the Old Testiment, God had to destroy man so that mankind could survive, or evolve, eather way you wish to look at it. The reason for the flood and the death of all but a few lets look at; Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. The question here is,”Did God give mankind a chance to repent?” The answer is Yes.Here is their answer for death of men, women and children in the Old Testiment. 2Pe 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
2Pe 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
2Pe 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
2Pe 2:7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
2Pe 2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
2Pe 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
2Pe 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
2Pe 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
2Pe 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; Mans, corruption, evil, lust, greed and disreguard for other human life, brought about their own destruction, remember that evil brings forth evil and cannot change for it is not in its nature to do so. As for the wars that Israel fought but the order of God, 2nd Peter 2:4 thru 10, also answers that question. End Part 1. ars
