Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

Hath not God Made Foolish the Wisdom of the World?

Stephen Hawking is said to be one of the most brilliant men in the world. And the news is piping up about his new book The Grand Design. In it, the "most brilliant man" says that gravity can and will create the world - out of nothing.
LONDON (Sept. 2) -- Entering the ongoing debate between faith and science, renowned British scientist Stephen Hawking claims that modern physics has now proved that God played no role in the creation of the universe.

In a new book -- "The Grand Design," co-written with American physicist Leonard Mlodinow -- the theoretical physicist sets out to demolish Sir Isaac Newton's claim that an "intelligent and powerful Being" must have shaped the universe, which he believed could not have emerged from chaos. Hawking and Mlodinow rule out the possibility of divine intervention, saying that new theories have made the idea of a supernatural creator redundant.

"Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing," the pair write, in an extract published in today's London Times. "Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going."
See the article here. The absurdity of such a thing is so profound that I cannot even express it. Gravity only exists in the presence of something –or more specifically, in the presence of matter as God created it. Technically speaking, matter could exist in a different form and not have gravitational pull (think of the random universe that would be), and thus the law of gravity would no longer be a law. In other words, the law of gravity is relative. It is not an independently existing law that is in operation no matter its surrounding, but rather it is created by one specific surrounding – matter as God created it. In nothingness then, gravity not only ceases to exist but actually cannot exist as there is nothing to produce it. So if we asked Mr. Hawking the question, Which came first the chicken or the egg? His answer is that the chicken hatched from the egg it itself laid. Mr. Hawking’s view is impossible for the plain reason that he has the creation making its own creator - gravity is created by matter but is said to create the matter that creates it. A chicken really cannot hatch from its own egg. Just doesn’t work. My heart aches for this man who's physical body is wasting away yet he is now dedicating the end of his life to proving that God does not exist and grasping at the most absurd theories to do it. He is willingly suppressing the truth in unrighteousness and having know God he has become vain in his imaginations, professing himself to be wise, he has proven himself a fool and has not glorified God.

1Co 1:18-21, 25-29, "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe...Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence."
