Sourced by Reason

I recommend that we listen to the wisdom of Dr. William Lane Craig.  Could it be that there is no unprejudiced reason for the position of atheism?  Consider the following two snippets from the Holy Bible.

22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’  John 15:22-25

AND

15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.  1 Peter 3:14-16

In my search for logical evidence of Christ, I found vast resources that are openly available for all to review.  In particular I would like to introduce Dr. William Lane Craig.  Prominent atheists have suggested to their followers that they should cease any debate with him.  It seems that these opponents are not able to falsify Dr Craig’s logic and now prefer to avoid him altogether.  YouTube is a great resource for some of his works.  His website location is ReasonableFaith.org.

I lean toward the idea that all judgments for or against a belief in Jesus Christ are rooted in partiality, holding each of us to personal accountability.

 

Prayer Strategy #1 – Ongoing Status Reports

Welcome to HeavenlyRealms.com, my living story.

In my post Passionate Christians Live Intentionally, I have publicly committed to regular prayer in 2020 after articulating my onboard Christian roadmap.  I work for the Lord now.  Genuinely I am a good person but obviously I could be better.  Some of these battles frankly have gone on for years.  Prayer strategy #1 is meant to assist a veteran of spiritual warfare like myself.  Perhaps you could benefit from this initiative as well.  My strategy is that I am required to conduct status report meetings with my Lord daily.

I refuse to avoid this daily meeting even when I mess up.  I am clearly sovereign and acknowledge authority over these problems.

In my weakness there will likely not be more than one or two issues in the hopper at any given time.  The objective is to successfully correct discrepancies before taking on new assignments.  Under current operations let us follow a trajectory rather than pretending that perfection is at all reachable.  As such we should willfully prioritize our social conflicts.  According to my understanding of the Judeo-Christian Bible, all of us are already endowed with everlasting futures.  I have decided personally that any problems nurturing spiritual death outweigh those that prematurely push my transition from one layer of abstraction to the next.  I begin this strategy today, April 7, 2020.

Passionate Christians Live Intentionally

Welcome to HeavenlyRealms.com, my life story.

Passionate Christians Live Intentionally.  This is my activated motto and obvious tagline for HeavenlyRealms.com.  We have been told that all are sinners and fall short of the glory of God.  This in my opinion should therefore be a directive for all who claim to revere holiness in the Word.  Imperfection is not tantamount to hypocrisy but include personal apathy into this equation and our shortcomings clearly degrade the example we set before us.

I am a highly challenged sovereign person.  I am sure you are too.  Each person I love is also sovereign.  All free-spirited persons in humanity possess epistemological authority.  Since I have settled the great conundrum that underscores all thought I must be an example, though ridicule and demand is certain.  Welcome to my life, it can be yours too.

2020 – Easing toward open display and respect

  • Strengthen my relationship with the Lord through routine prayer.
  • Study Holy revelation regularly, adopt and share.
  • Be a change agent by example.
  • Let selflessness benefit others.

Flight from Atheism

Welcome to HeavenlyRealms.com, my living story.

Flight from Atheism

Few atheists will totally abandon Love’s objective value proposition.  Doing so darkens the sovereign mind to unacceptable levels.  I for one have been extremely disappointed with its limiting performance.  Thankfully the fruitful scripture of Holiness is there for all to test.  It is the spiritual pen of satisfying artistry.  God is an artist.

John 10:10 (NASB) says “… I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”  I can see this motion.  Now proof of atheism does not exist, but Joy is a very real experience capable of demonstrating this artistry of the Lord.  I therefore submit to the work of Jesus Christ.

Science is philosophically chaotic and realistically limited, yet many people will not recognize a Heavenly authority unless forced to do so by a scientific proof that is impossible to acquire.  Free from coercion, I willfully believe in Holy Scripture so that I may experience life more abundantly.
