Ha…heard some guy say that on the radio this weekend, and it stuck.

Truth, truth, truth…

I kind of thought you would like that one, as we have talked about that before.

You are welcome, Wally!

What a great analogy!
January 16, 2017 at 17:44
Some preacher on Family Talk Radio said it…quoting another so not sure where it actually started lol. I agree though it was very apt

So wally, you don’t believe in the sovereignty of god over all things? You don’t believe God either does or allows all things in accordance with his will?
January 16, 2017 at 20:55
Um never said that
But I won’t bother to explain
January 17, 2017 at 05:17
Kind of difficult to believe God is totally Sovereign over all that happens yet afford him deniability for all tragedy and evil. You might say it’s logically contradictory and dissonant.

If that is YOUR position, Mike, great. Here is my issue, and why I consider you as waste of time, and that you are nothing but a flailing militant atheist.
One. You presented your initial comment as if what you just stated was MY position. Yes, it was a question, but clearly by any standard a question designed to plant the idea that I said something. I never said it, and my post never meant that. Hence, your opening comment was a lie.
Two. If you were truly a student of the Bible for 34 years, then you know that the Bible DOES NOT teach what you just said. Again, a waste of time to cover this with you, because ether you need to actually do that 34 years worth of study, or again you are intentionally lying and misrepresenting
God’s Word clearly teaches the concept of God’s sovereign authority coupled with His granting to mankind free will.
I will gladly discuss this with anybody genuinely curious.
Not with liars.
Have a nice day!

not an atheist by the way. i keep telling you that
January 17, 2017 at 06:48
What are you then?
Do you believe in God?
January 17, 2017 at 06:54
i’m just not a christian anymore. the two, non christian and atheist, are not necessarily synonymous. you should have learned that by now if you’ve read anything about religion and apologetics.
January 17, 2017 at 07:19
What do you believe?
We all know what you don’t believe
Tell us what you do believe
January 18, 2017 at 05:18
What I believe is not nearly as important to me now as what I can and cannot know to be true
January 18, 2017 at 06:21
Well, the question still stands.
What DO you believe?
It’s easy to take pot shots at the beliefs of another.
What do YOU believe?
You are always complaining nobody talks to you. Here is your chance.
The floor is yours.

Mike is still around? I forgot all about him.
January 19, 2017 at 21:35
Yep and still pops over for a visit now and then
They usually don’t last long

This is good Wally, it reminds me of an old story…
A preacher and an atheistic barber were once walking through the city slums. Said the barber to the preacher: “This is why I cannot believe in a God of love. If God was as kind as you say, He would not permit all this poverty, disease, and squalor. He would not allow these poor bums to be addicted to dope and other character-destroying habits. No, I cannot believe in a God who permits these things.”
The minister was silent until they met a man who was especially unkempt and filthy. His hair was hanging down his neck and he had a half-inch of stubble on his face. Said the minister: “You must not be a very good barber because you wouldn’t permit a man like that to continue living in this neighborhood without a haircut and shave.” Indignantly the barber answered: “Why blame me for that man’s condition? I can’t help it that he is like that. He has never come in my shop; I could fix him up and make him look like a gentleman!”
Giving the barber a penetrating look, the minister said: “Then don’t blame God for allowing the people to continue in their evil ways, when He is constantly inviting them to come and be saved.”

I actually used that story in a post some time ago that was still in draft. I just put it back up.
God is, of course, sovereign but He does get blamed unfairly quite often.
January 17, 2017 at 09:28
Yes…He certainly is..and we are certainly culpable. Complex, and I won’t even pretend to understand it all. Nonetheless, Scripture teaches it.
January 17, 2017 at 09:27
That’s an excellent analogy James, thanks!

Great post Wally. Short but extremely on point.
January 17, 2017 at 09:30
Thanks Tricia. My Sirius XM radio provides me with all the thoughts I could possible use.
January 17, 2017 at 09:58
Lol, my web browser does that…;)

Good analogy. This sounds very similar to something the apologist Cornelius Van Til once said.
January 18, 2017 at 06:24
I might have been him. I was listening to some preaching on the radio, and the preacher quoted it, and he didn’t say who it was. Might have been. I was a little different, I sort of paraphrased I think. Cant write thing down while I’m driving ya know.
January 27, 2017 at 10:09
