Your Anger Strengthens My Faith

I’ve been called an ignorant moron before: I can take it. In fact, such attacks aimed at my faith in God, and my hope in eternal life, only serve to strengthen me. The anger only serves to confirm what I already believe.

I was looking at a post on Facebook, which concerned a whale skeleton found in the middle of the Egyptian desert. It isn’t the only one found in such circumstances. The picture above is a secular representation of the end of the Triassic period, because even secular science now admits to enormous, earth-wide catastrophes.

The post was not shared by any Christian or remotely Biblical group, but was apparently interpreted by some commentators, as I would also interpret it, as further evidence for the Flood, as recorded in Genesis 6. Other comments-roughly half of them-were from people angry that anyone would suggest such a thing, and poured scorn and vitriol on Flood believers, in a hateful way. I had to correct one hater, who had, in his zeal for hopelessness and to correct the ignorant Bible believers, stated that he wasn’t interested in any of the “deity’s”. It’s “deities” I said.

The general response to believers in the Flood was, “Just believe the science and don’t be such a stupid moron”.

I could go into the science of finding whale skeletons in the middle of a huge desert-I’ve done that plenty of times and probably will again. But what I noticed here is how angry some people will get at the mention of the idea that there may be truth to Biblical Scriptures. Why? What is it that stirs such anger, rage and bitterness against Judeo-Christian faith (not any other) when there are babies being ripped from wombs by the thousands, and presidents and government feathering their nests at our expense? What is so terrible and hateful about some people finding truth and hope in a Creator? Here’s the answer:

For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.  (2 Corinthians 2:15-16 NKJV).

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil (John 3:19).
