• Samuel at Gilgal

    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

All of History

John PiperJohn Piper:

“All of history is moving toward one great goal, the white-hot worship of God and His Son among all the peoples of the earth. Missions is not that goal. It is the means. And for that reason it is the second greatest human activity in the world.”

  1. Nonsense. People are moving away from the delusion, most of them are still too afraid to ‘come out of the closet’ for fear of reprisals by believers, who are capable of anything. Christianity is a beautiful scam that pays well, doesn’t it Sam!


    • Your comment begins very appropriately with the word “Nonsense”, because everything that follows is exactly that! You are simply throwing muddy accusations with the hope that something will stick to justify your faulty generalizations.

      You speak of “fear of reprisals by believers, who are capable of anything” – however, the Bible tells us that all men are sinners and are capable of just about anything. Anyone may claim he is a Christian, but true Christians follow the way of Christ that is found in the Scriptures.

      Christianity is not a scam, but the Bible warns Christians about those who would use the church for fraudulent schemes:

      (Matthew 7:15 ESV) Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

      (1 John 4:1 ESV) Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

      (Matthew 7:21-23 ESV) “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

      I am speaking to you plainly, because “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes …” (Romans 1:16 ESV) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 ESV) The standard of Christianity is Jesus Christ, not just anyone who may claim to be a follower. There is salvation and eternal life in no other name but Jesus. I pray that someday you will come to the knowledge of this truth.
