it is the fact that we are ALL sinners together.
With all due respect, did you ever wonder why you believe you are a sinner - Because a Book, of unknown origin, embellished by many generations of
self serving men, tells you so?
If I throw trash in your yard, I have caused a negative. This is sin. I took something of yours as my own. Your yard is not a place for my trash.
You have a choice. You could come beat me for this. Now how many negatives do we have? Two. You could, instead, pick the trash up from your yard
and cancel my negative. Now we are back to equilibrium. Which is superior? The one that added positive.
What if you then came to my home and cleaned my yard? Now there is a surplus of positive and we have become friends. Now I am unlikely to ever take
from you again.
One piece of trash is easy to erase and forgive. Wars are caused by as little as this. Your children can die in war and by the hands of men who
think sin is not the problem. A book told me this and much more. It has the answer for ending war, poverty and for showing you how you are about to
lose all that you treasure in a free society because humanity has undervalued virtue and truth. Tyranny comes when the thieves rule.
Let's say for the sake of argument that you are right. What if the Bible is only a continued story of mankind over the centuries of history, showing
the various methods and mechanisms of observed good and evils and their accompanying results. Are you willing to deny what we have learned from our
own history? Only a fool would deny truth, no matter how we arrived at the obvious.
God was there first from Genesis 1:1. What did he say in Genesis 1:1-3?
Genesis 1:1, 3
In the Beginning (Time), God created the heavens (Space) and the earth (Matter). Let there be light (Energy).
Are you willing to bet an eternity that He has ever been wrong? Einstein was not on the same page with God until our day and age. When did God tell
us what we took thousands of years to see? Who was there first?
1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Are you aware that science is now realizing that we are an image of energy and light? Ask yourself if this is even possible? What are you reading
right now? You are reading words in the form of energy, collapsed from memory and reflecting the creators thoughts in word. You are reading them
later than when I wrote them and they are using a mechanism of collapsing wave function to transmit from my distal phalanges to your screen. I am in
your home right now, yet I am here as you read. Surly you don't believe me. I'm a Christian. We must all be liars.
What did God say that all of reality is constructed from? Other than Time, Space, Matter and Energy, did he give us a clue?
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
God just got lucky on this one, right? Surly science doesn't comply with this truth. Is a computer the very thing man creates as a microcosm to the
macrocosm? Yes. We are HIS image.
