Fatal Flaws?

September 26th, 2005 Visited 1237 times, 1 so far today

It is frustrating to realize that there are those out there that cannot see the truth and proclaim falsehood and attacks in its place. All it takes in certain corners of the web is an article about a Denver tour that is bibilcally based for these people to spout off their mouths in defense of something they did not witness, did not test, and make fools out of themselves. It would be laughable, if not so tragic, that a person could post something stating how terrible it was that a child would not challenge her authority or teacher and yet they refuse to do the same. I’m waiting from the post of the person that went into studying the Creation model with an open mind and found it lacking on scientific grounds. But I digress.

This latest forum had a link to a set of pages that supposedly proved that the the Bible was not inspired by God. I would like to spend a few posts here and there addressing these “flaws.”

Let’s start with what this man calls the Bible’s Fatal Flaws:

Flaw #1:

DT 6:5, MT 22:37, MK 12:30, LK 10:27 Love God.
DT 6:13, PS 33:8, 34:9, 111:10, 115:13, 128:1, 147:11, PR 8:13, 16:6, 19:23, 22:4, IS 8:13, LK 12:5, 1PE 2:17 Fear God.
1JN 4:18 There is no fear in love.

Pretty simple one here. This man assumes only one definition of fear. I can fear or reverence my parents. I can know that they can send me to my room (or whatever punishment here). Yet I can love my parents.  Especially since if I have perfect love for God, I will be doing those things that would please him, which would result in my not having fear of Him.

Flaw #2:

PR 30:5 Every word of God proves true.
1KI 22:23, 2CH 18:22, JE 4:10, JE 20:7, EZ 14:9 God deceives some of the prophets.

In fact, the Scripture says that every word of God is pure. And also, the passages say that God put a lying spirit in prophets. Why? Since an Israelite king decided not to follow God’s clear instruction, God let him be deceived by people that wanted simply to make the king feel good. The problem with this “flaw” is that if God was so decietful, why did he send a prophet to tell the king what was going on? I guess you could be skeptical enough to think that “well, this is the only time that God actually told…” However, the truth is that when a test or temptation is presented, there’s always a way of escape provided.
Ahab chose not to listen to the true prophet, but to false ones.  Furthermore, God makes the statements that there are true prophets of God as well as false prophets, and how to know which is which…

    umm I had a hard time reading you. Do you believe the philosophy professor or the tour guide? I am inclined to believe the tour guide. I don’t believe in macro evolution, but instead only micro. There are so many little changes in species that do occur such as breed etc., but how often does a cat give birth to a dog? I think that I understood that you are on the side of creation but not for people that speak out against evolution as anything more than a theory. But from reading previous posts, I’d be inclined to think otherwise.

    Ahh that’s what I thought, but then I got confused when I read the post. Thanks for clarifying. I also agree that evolution is a religion, but how do you go about telling the science teacher at school that? So I call it a theory in most places.

    Have a great day!

    Oh and have you ever been to DrDino.com? It has some interesting information on why evolution is false. I forget the guy’s name but he is amazing in his fact collecting.

    I”m 100% behind a Young Earth and the Creation Model based on the Word of God. I’m sorry if I confused you. It was partly because I was frustrated with all the anti-creation rehtoric I was reading in this one forum.

    Evolution, however, is not a theory as much as it is a religion.

    The problem is in the symantics. I try to stay away from the terms micro and macro evolution for that reason. Natural Selection is ok, but micro lets people think that you’re ok with some kinds of evolution.

    Other than that, Ken Ham says that people should respond when a teacher says that this is the way that happened with the simple question: Where you there?

    I’m much more of a http://www.answersingenesis.org person than a DrDino.com person. 🙂

    Missed that article in my own city MIn 😀 Good catch. I agree that those who love to preach an ‘open mind’ are reluctant to even entertain ANY theory outside of the evolutionary one. Me, I’ve entertained both and Biblical Creationism explains origins best. But sadly, teachers, students and many aren’t exposed to both theories to make up their own mind.

    Both good ministries (AIG & Dr. Dino), but different styles…

    ***For the record, never get into a rubber band fight w/Kent Hovind (@ Dr.Dino.com), the man is deadly accurate. ***
