Words of Comfort: Why I should get down on my knees?


"Please explain why I should get down on my knees and start pleasing an immoral, judgmental, childish, inferior, insecure, genocidal maniac God!"  

Because you are the one who is immoral, judgmental, childish, inferior, insecure, self-righteous, blasphemous and godless--with the ultimate delusion of grandeur in thinking that you can stand in moral judgment over Almighty God. You need to look closely at your own sins in the light of the Ten Commandments.

Words of Comfort: Jesus didn't listen to Himself.


"Jesus asked Himself if this cup could pass him by. He didn’t listen to Himself."

When the Creator and Upholder of the Universe made a human body and filled that body as a hand fills a glove (Jesus was "the express image of the invisible God"[1]) He didn't cease to be the omnipotent Creator and Upholder of all things. Jesus was fully Man and fully God, but in the incarnation He was limited to time, space, hunger, thirst, all so that He could suffer the pain of death[2], to save us from Eternal Justice.

Words of Comfort: AIDS in Africa?


"Why is it that God gives AIDS to kids in Africa?"

As an atheist, God didn't give them AIDS because He doesn't exist. Always keep that in mind when you blame Him for things when you don’t believe He exists. If He did commit the crimes you accuse Him of, then He exists and you have to face him on Judgment Day.

Words of Comfort: Two men cannot procreate.


“Why is it that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah but had no problem with Adam, Eve and their two sons basically procreating the world?”

Adam and Eve obviously had more children. Two men cannot procreate.

Words of Comfort: A beetle without a maker.


“The only thing you can say about all atheists is that they all lack belief in gods.” 

There are many atheists around the world who don't embrace your carefully worded modern definition. They simply say "I believe that there is no God." Your cut-and-paste movement only started a few years ago. But you are still connected to the old “I believe” atheists. If I have a car and say “I lack belief in makers,” it means I believe that cars have no makers—and my car therefore had no maker.  It means that I believe that nothing made it.  So, carefully worded though your modern definition may be, it still leaves you believing the scientifically impossible—that nothing made everything.

Words of Comfort: Extra limbs.


“A whale was found with atavistic hind limbs of over 4 feet long. This makes perfect sense according to an evolutionary framework. Please explain how it makes any sense according to creationism.”

Do an Internet search for "photos of extra limbs" and you will find lambs with eight legs, people with four legs, three arms, etc. They have nothing to do with evolution and neither does a whale that has extra limbs.

Words of Comfort: Faible device of communication.


“If there was an omnipotent Supreme Being, why would He use such a fallible device of communication--a book written by men, selected by men? Why not just communicate directly?”

God did communicate directly with human beings. When He gave the Ten Commandments, the nation of Israel was so fearful that they thought they would die. He has chosen to give us His written Word telling us how to find everlasting life, and we are to simply do what it says.

Words of Comfort: Insulting to God.


A skeptic remarked: “Lack of faith is insulting to God--sounds extremely petty."

Ray answers:  I don't believe for one minute anything you say. You are not a trustworthy person. I lack faith in you because you lack the virtue of faithfulness. To lack of faith in someone is to slur their integrity. How much more so with God.

Words of Comfort: Lip service.


I often go through the Ten Commandments to help people see that they need God’s forgiveness. Some people say that they’ve never lied, stolen or even lusted. If you are in that category, you should know that the Ten Commandments are summed up in just two—loving God and loving your neighbor as yourself. If you love God, you will put Him first, have no other gods before Him, never use His Name in blasphemy and you will keep the Sabbath holy. If you love your neighbor, you will never lie to him, steal from him covet his property, commit adultery with his wife, or murder him. 

It gets even worse for us when we realize that loving God isn’t a mere lip service. It means to love Him with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength. Do you do that? And to love your neighbor as yourself is more than a cake given over the neighbor’s fence.

Jesus summed up the moral Law’s command to love everyone in the story of the “Good Samaritan.” The Samaritan found a man beaten and robbed. He bathed his wounds and transported him to an Inn, and told the Inn-keeper that if the man spends anything, the Samaritan would cover the bill. Do you love God and every other person to that degree? If you have failed even once, then you have fallen short of keeping the Law. Add to that your lies, lust, greed, rebellion, unthankfulness, blasphemy, fornication, envy, pride, and a multitude of sins we all have, and you have a tiny glimpse of the serious nature of your sins. You ned a Savior to wash them away and save you from death and Hell. For details on how to get everlasting life, see www.needGod.com

Words of Comfort: Tortured for Christ.


“Out of curiosity, have you read Richard Wurmbrand's Tortured For Christ? He gives an incredible account of torturers who claimed all of their evil in the name of atheism.” Richard Bushey  

"The communist torturers often said, 'There is no God, no Hereafter, no punishment for evil. We can do what we wish.' I have heard one torturer even say, 'I thank God, in whom I don't believe, that I have lived to this hour when I can express all the evil in my heart.' He expressed it in unbelievable brutality and torture inflicted on prisoners."  (Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand, page 34).
