Christianity’s Complete Disregard for the Plain Sense of Scripture is Nauseating

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on January 17, 2018

Third Day

Christianity is a mindless horde of man-followers and little else. Truth, viz, orthodoxy, comes from men who buy their credentials and license to rule over the salvation of others. Only orthodoxy is learned at seminary and passed on from generation to generation. Truth is communicated through pithy truisms, mantras, and contemporary music using singers who sound like they are being tortured while they sing.

This is why I have so few friends on Face Book. Even with the few that I have, memes and comments that blatantly contradict Scripture flow like the bowl movements of a newborn. For some strange reason, I am compelled to comment on particular ones that happen to catch my attention.

Don’t you know, people who are gifted musically are also spiritual authorities. Hence, the attached meme by the “Christian” moaners Third Day. Like I have said before though I am a pragmatic soul, there is a strange power behind true love because Susan and I ended up married regardless of our incessant fussing over this issue while we were dating. As one who was churched for over 50 years, she was incredulous that I saw nothing positive about church, and constantly pointed out the biblical error in the lyrics of her favorite songs. Once, she deliberately sought to antagonize me by suggesting that Toby Mac knew more about the gospel than I did which invoked hysterical laughter, and it kinda went downhill from there real fast. Of course, we are past all of that now and still friends on Face Book.

Sigh. Do Christians still have parts of their lives that are “in darkness”? Say, is there an area of your life in darkness that you would like the Lord to shine a light on? Where to start with this BS (boloney sausage)? First of all, if it is in darkness, how would you even know that it needs light? Well, I guess it depends on what exactly the meme means by darkness to begin with which is ambiguous like all other things church. However, I suppose we can be reminded that God’s elect only know one thing; that we can’t know. Nevertheless, we have areas that we know are darkness, and know that our only hope is for God to shine light on it, so, ya know, that we will then know it is light, or something like that.

This is why I always enjoy watching evangelicals witness to unbelievers. You can just see what they are thinking by the looks on their faces while these people are talking: “What the hell?”

I could go on and on, but I expend most of that energy ranting to Susan in the car even when she doesn’t turn on the radio. Suffice to say that the Bible presents light and darkness as two totally separate states of being. And, if a believer is walking “like” they are still in darkness, the Bible gives specific instruction on what to do about it which doesn’t include begging the Lord to do something about it and waiting to see if He wants to or not.

Here is an opportunity to look at yet another word or two that Christians are in total confusion about. But let’s not be confused about this: Christians are confused in regard to EVERY metaphysical word and concept in the Bible or elsewhere. For example, you will hear them throw around words like “grace” and “law” more often than they go to the bathroom; now ask them to define those words and behold the deer-in-the-headlights look, or the regurgitation of what someone else told them.

But we are talking about the words, darkness and light. A popular use of these terms among Christians is to prove from the first chapter of Genesis that every verse in the Bible is about Jesus. And, they believe that because they heard it at church. And here is what they heard: Paul stated in 2Corinthians 4:6 that God brought light from darkness which refers to Christ and the gospel. Only problem is that Paul wasn’t citing Genesis, he was citing Isaiah, and so it goes.

To whom shall we go to find truth? Christian musicians represent a plethora of different denominations. Which one of those denominations will be proved correct at the “final tribunal”? And if Christians don’t even know what any given Bible word means, why would we presume that they know what the true gospel is?
