Debating an atheist on the street

Hello dear blog readers,

Just yesterday I happened to arrive a half hour early for a Bible study in town. Wanting to get some exercise I went walking down the neighborhood. The streets were long enough, so it happened to fill out my half hour. Right before I started I noticed a man about fifty leaving his house with his two ten-year old kids on bikes.

On my way back to the Bible study I was stopped by the man who I asked if I was the man with the car with all these -provocative- bumper stickers on them. Notably: “Gay genes don’t get passed on – homosexuality is a sin”, and: “Hosni MuBarack Saddam Hussein Obama bin Laden”.

I use these bumper stickers to get attention and make people think. Especially liberals, to challenge their reigning worldview.

Well, the man turned out to be a liberal atheist, so when I answered in the affirmative, he immediately opened fire on me. He demanded how I could put put such “hateful” words on my bumper sticker. I replied simply that that was what the Bible said, and that God created mankind male and female, and that homosexuality was an aberration of God’s original design. Gay couples break up at a larger rate than straight people, BTW. The atheist could not fathom that I would bring up such a thing as sin, yet people break the Commandments daily. It just didn’t occur to him that the two female Muslim members of the House of Representatives hurl insults at Christians, not even stopping at mocking vice president Mike Pence for his evangelical faith. Some atheists can be real fowl-mouthed and this atheist cussed my religion out at least three times during our fifteen minute verbal duel. In front of his own kids…

Things turned to matters concerning the truthfulness of the Bible. Using the knowledge that I had learned in apologetics class I made a point to the atheist that as skeptic, he knows nothing. If a skeptic is truly consistent, he will take his skepticism to the very logical end and doubt everything. Thus, the atheist knows virtually nothing. As Rene Descartes said, “I think therefore I am”. What Descartes meant by this is that an observer can doubt everything that he sees, hears or touches. The only one thing he cannot doubt is that his mind is somehow turned on and working. The only thing he knows is that he exists. Pathetic, as some atheists would say… The atheist is like a man who has locked himself out of the house of knowledge and thrown the key away. How so? Because this house is the house of God, and all knowledge starts with the fear of God. Only God can know everything. Only God can be objective. Only God knows and sees things as they really are. That is why we as humans can benefit from the truth that God imparts to us in His Word, the Bible. Atheists suffer in darkness, Christ followers have the light.

Things turned to the matter of abortion. The atheist brought up the worn out argument that it’s the woman’s choice. Not so, because you as a human were always you from conception. As such nobody has any right to interfere with the baby’s life from that point forward. Imagine, the womb is the most dangerous place to be in this world. More babies are aborted than soldiers on the battlefield. Without abortion, there would be half a billion Americans. In order to have a stable, future society, we need reproducing families. We cannot achieve this with homosexual couples, or with people who abort other Americans. Abortion is anti-American.

The atheist brought up the idea that “religion” is all about control, and that without religion we’d all be free. I reminded the atheist about his own religious beliefs, namely that he believes that nature is everything (which he accepts by faith because he can’t prove it). To me this smacked of the Communists endeavors some fifty-sixty years ago to liquidate religion in the former (and not-so-former such as North Korea) Communist countries. I told him that if we were to do away with all religion, we’d have to exterminate every single person on the planet, atheists included. Good show. How’s that for a self-goal.

And all I did was say that homosexuality was a sin…

Analysis of Hovind-Jones debate “Is evolutioncompatible with the Bible?” Januray 1, 2019

Analysis of the Hovind-Jones debate (Is evolution compatible with the Bible) on January 1, 2019

Michael Jones of Inspiring Philosophy interprets the days of Genesis 1 as part of a seven-day inauguration of the universe by God, whereby He sets everything into their proper function. God stepped into a chaotic universe, and made order out of it. You claim that Genesis 1 states that when God had started creating things (b’reshit), he set everything in the universe into its proper function (barah).

I cross-checked Genesis 1:1 with Exodus 20:11, which reads in English as follows: For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. It is interesting to note here that the verb denoted here in bold is not barah (which Jones claims does not mean to create), but asah, which means to make. Hebrew verbs can take up multiple meanings, and depend on context. Thus, Hovind’s interpretation is correct.

Let us look at Genesis 1 in Hebrew: B’reshit barah Elohim et shamayim v’et ha’aretz. I contend that this sentence does indeed mean that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Let us look at the word b’reshit. Jones claims that since the word lacks the definite article, thereby it means “in the time”, when God was creating the heavens and the earth, which does not mean an absolute beginning.

I still disagree. In Hebrew based on context sometimes the definite article may be missing from in front of a word, yet it may still denote a definite subject. I contend that b’reshit still means in the beginning, the absolute beginning. This is because Hebrew, as opposed to English not an analytic type of language. In English we have to declare the definite or indefinite article in order to exactly define a noun or a word. But Hebrew is a different language where this is not necessarily so. There are other languages where not putting the definite article still denotes a definite noun.

Hungarian is such a language. In Hungarian, Genesis 1:1 reads: Kezdetben teremtette Isten a mennyet és a földet. Literally: created God the heaven and the earth. Hungarian even has a -t suffix after nouns which, similar to Hebrew, denote that a noun is an object, like how in Hebrew the word et points to a noun which is an object. Hungarian and Hebrew bear uncanny similarities with one another.

Furthermore, another main problem I have with Jones’ argumentation is this: the title of the debate was Is evolution compatible with the Bible? I noticed that Jones avoided addressing the question. But this was the whole point of the debate. To me it seems that Jones took pains to disprove the young-earth six-day literal interpretation of Genesis. Now, that is one thing, and Jones did try to argue for this, but didn’t follow through in actually demonstrating that biological evolution, however generally defined, is compatible with the Bible.

One must agree, that in a general sense, evolution is, quite simply put, descent via modification. That means that if you have a long chain of organisms, A1, A2, A3, … Bn-2, Bn-1, Bn, where A denotes a species of one kind, and B a species of another kind, there will be somewhere in the middle of this chain a pair of individuals Am-B1 such that A begets B. Thus, we have an instance where kind begets non-kind, however, this contradicts Genesis 1 which states that fruits, grasses, birds and sea creatures all multiply according to their kind. Hovind did demonstrate that what evolution says and what Genesis 1 are in contradiction with each other. Jones ceded this point, thus Hovind won the debate.

Another passage from Scripture also proves this point even further. According to 1Corinthians 15:38-39, “But God gives it a body as He pleases, and to each seed its own body. All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.”

This means that all biological beings did not originate from the same original primordial cell billions of years ago. This means that God created different kinds of animals, fish and birds, with its own body, its own flesh. These kinds are separate from one another. Furthermore, God defined, created each body as He pleases, not according to a blind, materialistic process. How can you square an ongoing materialistic evolutionary process with creation within a set time-frame? Evolution is ongoing even now, yet God finished creating the universe in the past. Even Jones’ position claims that God first created, then inaugurated. It is clearly a contradiction.

Another major point that needs to be mentioned is that to me it seems that Jones was trying to demonstrate that God created chaos, at least in the very beginning, and that death and suffering were present in God’s good creation. But God is a God of love and of life, not of death. If death is natural, do you think that people will pass away and die in heaven? Is this a prospect one should be looking forward to? Did God really create the chaotic universe, which was without form and void? Is God sloppy? God’s work reflects upon His character. No, God is not sloppy, but then this implies that God did not create the universe, and therefore we’d be left with a dualist view of the world at best (where God and the devil are co-equal with each other, a rather horrible prospect), materialism at worst.

Because of these considerations there had to be a literal, physical fall into sin, which explains the origin of suffering and death, which is the reason Jesus came to earth, to save us from our sins.

A spiritual message from the book of Numbers

Numbers 21:4-9

And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people,and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord,and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us.And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that everyone that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

Many times in the book of Numbers we read about the complaints and the murmurings of the Israelites against Moses and God. As we can see here, they long to go back to Egypt, where they had food and drink enough to be satisfied. Instead, they are thirsting and hungering as they follow Moses through the wilderness. Some speak up against Moses and against God. They are discontent, they do not believe that God can provide for them. They have forgotten that in Egypt they were slaves and an oppressed people. They do not look upon the fact that God is leading them to Canaan, the Promised Land, a land flowing with milk and honey.

Therefore, the Lord sends fiery  snakes upon the people, who bite them and injure them greatly. This causes their murmuring to abate, and they repent. Moses makes a serpent of brass, and whoever looks upon it will be healed of their sin. All they have to do is merely look upon the serpent and they shall be healed. (they merely looked upon the serpent not to as an aid in remembering any one person like in Roman Catholic theology) Likewise, in the Gospel, all you have to do is look upon Christ, and you shall be saved. The story of the fiery serpent has a parallel in John 3:14-16:

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Let us remember, when Jesus says:“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)

What does this mean for us? We are the church which wanders in the wilderness. Though we may be oppressed,marginalized, mocked by every television show out there, and not have the niceties of the world, still, we have the Lord, Who is our greatest resource.He provides for us and gives us what we need, and lets us not be tempted more than what we can bear. God brought us out of sin (out of Egypt), and is leading us into His Kingdom (symbolized by Canaan). He has chosen us to be His people.He will be our God, and we shall be His people, and He will walk among us, even if it be by His Holy spirit here on earth.

Therefore let our souls not be troubled but let us have faith and take strength to walk the good walk with the Lord. Amen.

There aren’t any Nazis any more

You’ve heard it tons of times. More than you can even count. Liberals have attacked Donald Trump, conservatives and Republicans and called them fascists, racists and Nazis. Coming from Eastern Europe I have a concept of who Adolph Hitler and the Nazis were which liberal people don’t know about.

First of all, we have to finally lay to rest the outlandish idea Adolph Hitler and the Nazis were Christian. They were not Christian in any sense of the word. Early on the Nazis courted the Roman Catholic vote to gain power, I mean, they were politicians trying to curry peoples’ votes. However, later on, the Nazis turned on the Christian church and sent pastors to prison because they wouldn’t support the Nazi party. Pastors such as Bonhoeffer and Niemoller are such examples of Protestant pastors who were imprisoned because they opposed Hitler and the Nazis. Martin Bormann, Hitler’s secretary even got Christian pastors into hot water simply by mentioning to Hitler that they had spoken out against him.

If anyone says that Hitler was a Christian, it means that that person has never read Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf”, or “My struggle” in English. Even though Hitler may refer to God, or even to man being created in God’s image, Hitler refers to Fate (capital F) at least a dozen more times. “As fate would have it” was a common phrase that he used. One has to realize that Hitler, like all of us was inconsistent in his thought and writing at times.

Hitler actually preferred the religion of the Japanese and the Muslims over against Christianity, which he thought to be a weak, purile, useless, religion, and scorned Jesus Christ because he thought Jesus was being weak when He suffered and died on the cross. We can see how he in a sense emulated Mohammed, who conquered the countries of the Middle East by conquering the different countries of Europe. In a sense, Hitler was Europe’s Mohammed in the middle of the twentieth century.

This being said, are there really any Nazis around anymore? Are they present in large enough numbers so as to be seriously reckoned with? Can somebody at all state with a straight face that Nazis are infesting our society all around us?

The Socialist party of Hungary a few years ago declared as one of their campaign pledges that they were going to de-Nazify the upper echelons of Hungarian politics. A complete joke if you consider that Hungary had been a Communist country for 40 years and all traces of Nazism had subsequently been erased.

At the Nuremberg trials in 1946 20 of the top Nazis in Germany were put on trial, including such men as Hermann Goering, the second man of the Reich, Albert Speer, in charge of architecture and armaments, and the top generals, such as Alfred Jodl. Only three were acquitted, based on insufficient evidence, and nine were hanged (Goering committed suicide before his execution). However, we must also add that other top Nazis were hunted down, captured, and brought before trial, such as Adolph Eichmann in Israel during the 1960’s. Furthermore, the two Germanies, East and West held their own de-Nazification trials after the second world war, and executed lower ranking Nazis. Some Nazis who were acquitted during Nuremberg were re-tried and executed because the Germans had more information than the Allies who organized and held the trials. Today Germany is a very liberal country, and has very responsibly done away with whatever Nazism it had in its past, and has reimbursed the Jewish people for the Holocaust.

Yet, maniacally the idea that Nazis are everywhere perpetrates liberals’ monologs against the right. Today there are neo-Nazis in several European countries, and also in the United States as well. There are also neo-Nazis in Hungary, too, but their numbers are extremely low. There was an incidence when Hungary was celebrating March 15 (like July 4 in the US) at Kossuth square, the main square in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, in the 1990’s. I witnessed two columns of young men march past silently. It was obvious from their clothing that they were neo-Nazis. It was obvious from the expression on their face to me that they didn’t know what they were doing and why they were there. They looked lost. The whole incident took a minute as they marched past. Then everybody resumed what they were doing.

Bottom line is that neo-Nazis are nobodies. There are only a couple hundred of them in Hungary. People make fun of them, and call them skinheads. They even have a saying for them in Hungarian: “Tobb haj, mint esz” – more hair than brains. Neo-Nazis have been banished forever to the status of being something like a UFO-cult. There virtually aren’t any Nazis any more around us, so with that the hyper-active left can simply calm down and we can all move on and make America great again.

Thank you.

Make America Great Again! Trump 2020

During the 2016 primaries I was a Cruz supporter. I was a bit suspicious of Trump, maybe because he had supported Clinton before (although I realize Trump broadly supported a lot of people). I supported Cruz because of his supposed evangelical beliefs.

I was pleasantly surprised after Trump won the election. To me, he may have a rough exterior, but on the inside I think he truly wants to help make America great again. I am a discerning voter, and I do not go with everything he says and does, but importantly, Trump is a man who you can work with and make deals with.

These are the reasons I think Trump makes for a good president:

  • Trump annulled the mandatory health care insurance imposed by ObamaCare
  • Trump is standing up to our foreign enemies, as in the Middle East
  • Trump has taken steps to build the wall on the southern border (although another solution would be local militias)
  • Trump supports the church and our military
  • The Johnson amendment was greatly eased, but it could have been abolished altogether
  • Trump believes disabled children (Down’s syndrome babies) should have a right to life (even from conception, too)
  • Trump supports monolingualism (should be made de jure)
  • Trump supports gun rights and the Second Ammendment
  • Trump wants to lower our taxes
  • Trump has also done a lot to increase the number of jobs in this country
  • Trump took steps to force North Korea to become less aggressive using peaceful measures

What I also found positive is that Trump doesn’t accept a salary for working as president. Things are looking up after a disastrous eight years of Obamunism. Thanks to our president, and let’s all keep working hard to make America great again!

Democratic socialism is NOT the way to go!

Recently the Democratic party has just taken a more extreme step leftwards by espousing democratic socialism, a brand of politics espoused by certain Western European countries, such as France and Germany. Many young people are also calling for a Marxist revolution in this country, for a full-scale socialization of American society.

As a dual citizen who has lived in a former Communist country for eighteen years, and who knows about the devastation and destruction that Communism has caused in the nation of Hungary, I cannot idly stand by and watch as these young people actively promote a destructive and failed ideology. One thing is that these young people do not have a life history of their own to look back on. Another thing is that they have never ever lived in a socialist country themselves, so therefore they are oblivious to the destruction that they want to unleash upon their own country. It would be wise of them to stop and listen to someone who has had some experience in living under real socialism.

My name is Dr. Matthew Cserhati. I am 39 years old, and spent 18 years of my life in Hungary, from 1993 to 2011.

Let me characterize what Hungary was like after the fall of Communism in 1990. The buildings were old and dilapidated. The paint on the inside and the outside of some of the buildings were falling off. I remember attending a church service one time, and the paint started falling off of the walls on the inside of the church as though it was snow. It was a bit embarrassing. Elevators were decades old and some of them were pretty creaky. Half of the populace didn’t have a car, so people either had to take the tram or bus or commute by train. The tram could get really bumpy at times; sometimes people got rid of their kidney stones by riding these trams, they were so bumpy. During Communism they made poor quality Trabants, according to one anecdote one such car hit a post at low speed and fell apart. Train cars were covered in graffiti and grime. Some of the seats were ripped up so that the stuffing came out. Sometimes the heating didn’t work, which was a pain in the winter. Sometimes the doors were jammed open. The bathrooms in these train cars reeked from urine. Sometimes there was no soap or flowing water to wash your hands with. Hungary wasn’t even able to afford construction of its own subway cars. They had to be imported from the Soviet Union, with Cyrillic letters on them. Highway and metro infrastructure were sparser than in well-to-do Western countries. Comparing a highway map of Germany to that of Hungary shows that German cities were much, much better connected than the four (incomplete) highways connecting Budapest to four other major cities. Compared to other Eastern European countries Hungary was one of the mot well-to-do countries, but still lagged behind Western European countries, such as Austria by several decades. Highway infrastructure was even worse in Romania. In some Romanian villages houses didn’t even have toilets, you had to go to the outhouse in the back to do your business. In Communism the philosophy was to do away with private property and make everything common. In theory this may sound nice. However, this led to a large number of thefts at the workplace. People reasoned that, if everything belongs to everybody, then obviously I can take anything, since it also belongs to me. This is in reality a form of tyranny where the government puts to use your hard-earned money that you yourself earned. According to Abraham Lincoln, the man who grew the corn ought also to eat the corn.

After Communism, Hungary had a Socialist government for 12 years, from 1994 to 1998, and from 2002 to 2010. What happened during this time is that while it is true that the Socialists raised wages, people had to take the double whammy of higher taxes and also higher prices. To use a Hungarian figure of speech, what you gain at the port, you loose at the customs. Double-time. Not many commodities were available in the country. Many elderly people were even starting to starve, at times they didn’t even have enough money to purchase their daily bread. Health care was abysmal. Even though it was covered by insurance, there were months long waiting lines for even standard treatments. In order to get a more complicated procedure done, you had to go either to Bratislava or Vienna (a Western, non-Communist country) to get it done. Hungarian science and technology was also lagging in development. Hungary wasn’t able to do any leading science, but was relegated to “follow-up” science. For example, Hungary wasn’t even able to implement Next Generation Sequencing for a decade after this technology was first used in Western, capitalist countries. Socialism was so disastrous that by 2010, the Hungarian treasury had less money in it than at the end of Communism. Hungary went from having a leading Eastern European economy to one of the worst economies after eight years. Germany, a leading nation in the European Union was constantly upset with Hungary for constantly having to bail us out. This led to the landslide parliamentary election where the Civic party (FIDESZ) and the Christian Democrats won a landslide victory and a two-thirds majority in the Parliament.

Socialism is not the answer.

Vote Republican.

Vote Trump in 2020 and make America great again.

Letter to Brett Kavanaugh – overturn Roe vs Wade

Dear Justice Brett Kavanaugh,

Congratulations on your being affirmed as the 114th Supreme Court justice of the United States of America. I find the smear campaign that the left launched against you absolutely appalling, detestable, and deplorable.

We are at a historic juncture in history. With a 5-4 majority of conservatives on the Supreme Court we now have the opportunity to make history. This does not bear repeating. We now have the opportunity to undo the present deep tide of liberalism which is destroying this country bit by bit. We have a golden opportunity in our very hands to save the lives of millions of unborn babies. It is time to stop the senseless killing.

Some people claim that we cannot legislate morality. But, the fact of the matter is that at present we do exactly that. If were not to legislate morality, then we would have to do away with all of the laws in the country. We would have to be antinomian. In that case literally, all hell would break loose.

During World War II the United States would have done anything to stop a war which cost the lives of millions of people. Yet the number of innocent babies slaughtered by abortion over the course of 44 years is greater than the number of American soldiers lost in the American Revolution, the war of 1812, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Korean war, the war in Vietnam, Gulf war I and Gulf War II combined. Roe vs Wade has made it more dangerous to be in the womb than on the battlefield.

Just imagine – without abortion, today there would be half a billion Americans instead of only 325 million.

When will the killing end? How much longer will this total depravity be allowed to continue? Roe vs Wade must be overturned!

God has put you in a special place to help stop this continuous, senseless killing. Remember the words of Scripture from Esther 4:13-14:

And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

In these verses we read about Haman’s plot to destroy the Jewish people. Mordecai the Jew, the relative of queen Esther got wind of this plot and notified the queen. Esther, herself also a Jew was in a very special position to stop this evil conspiracy. She had the king’s ear and certainly could have interceded for her own people. Mordecai urges queen Esther to intercede for her people, since this is a one in a lifetime possibility to save her people from destruction. Note that Mordecai warns Esther that if she remains silent, God is powerful to save the Jews in any way He wants, but Esther and her house will perish.

Judge Kavanaugh – you are in the position of queen Esther. The situation cannot be more clear. With a majority vote the conservatives on the Supreme Court could vote to overturn Roe vs Wade and stop the killing. It is a golden opportunity, and a great responsibility. If you do not overturn Roe vs Wade think of what God will ask you, why you did not do so on Judgement day when you had the chance.

Do what is right. The Lord calls.

Remember the millions of aborted babies.

Stop the killing, and overturn Roe vs Wade.

God bless you,

Dr. Matthew Cserhati

Can a Christian lose their salvation?

Can a Christian lose his or her salvation?

Matthew Cserhati

Can a Christian lose his or her salvation? Is it possible for me to do something really disobedient or grow so cold so I just drop out of my salvation and go to hell forever? This hard question has caused much mental anguish to Christians, including myself at one point in my life. Let me attempt to give the listener some consolation if he or she is struggling with this very question.

Let me answer this question briefly and succinctly. The answer is a definitive NO. Let’s examine this question from a number of different angles. We know from the Gospels and the book of Revelation that the church is the bride of Christ. When we are born again, we become a child of God. We enter into a loving relationship with God Our father, the Creator of the universe.  The relationship between a man and his wife mirrors the relationship between God and the church.

Jesus Christ so loved His church that he laid down His life for us. Ephesians 5:25 says: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it”. We are one with Christ, the church is the body of Christ, and Jesus is head of the church. Furthermore, Malachi 2:16 says: “For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away”.

How could God, Who ordained marriage and by His very nature hates divorce, put away any member of the church that He sent His Son to die for? By His very own nature God cannot reject His own church and willfully throw His own children into the flames of hell forever.

The idea that one can lose their salvation presupposes that one can then do something for their own salvation. Meaning that in order to stay in salvation, one has to do something, since one has to do something in order to attain salvation. This is wrong, because it then means that salvation is works-based.

Ephesians 2:8-9 says “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

The concept of losing one’s salvation comes from Arminian churches which teach that you have to choose God in order to attain salvation. This is an active, conscious choice on the part of an unregenerate man. If you can choose God, it is logical that you can also “un-choose”, and therefore forfeit your relationship with Him, and be in danger of hell if you die.

This is not so according to the teaching of election. Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

God has ordained us from the beginning of the world to walk with Him and produce good works. Romans 8:30 says: “Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” This verse means that if somebody is elect (in other words, predestined), then all of the events in this chain will occur in his or her life: predestination, calling, justification, and glorification in Heaven. Nobody will dropout mid-way, the chain will not break, and what God has begun, He will finish on the last day. It is not a question of man’s will. You cannot lose your salvation.

Can you lose your salvation because of some sin or disobedience? Just think, God chose you before the world began. Knowing ahead of time, he chose you despite the fact that He knew already what kinds of sins you will commit. Jesus Christ died for all of your sins – past, present and future.

Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep in Luke 15 is so beautiful, in verses 4-6: “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.” Jesus is an ever-watchful Shepherd Who watches carefully over His flock, the church. Remember, He is the Good Shepherd. Jesus knows when and where any of His sheep might start going astray. He will go after every single stray sheep and bring it back to the fold. All the time, every time, because the Son of God is consistent.

Does this mean that we can live any which way we want? No, because if we live continuously in sin, we will feel uncomfortable because of it. A true believer will be bothered by his sin, but a non-believer will not. Salvation is meaningless to him. So, if you are listening to this video because this issue troubles you, fear not, because it is the Holy Spirit working in you to remind you of your sin and also to forsake it.

God bless you.

A reminder that atheism does not work

A reminder that atheism does not work


Greetings, American Atheists,

My name is Dr. Matthew Cserhati, of San Antonio, Texas. Please accept my gift to you of pastor Richard Wurmbrand’s book, “Tortured for Christ”. This book is a testimony by a man who spent 14 years in the Communist prison system in Romania. He writes about the horrors of the Communist system, about how the Communists opposed and oppressed anyone who stood against their totalitarian-based system.  In the Romanian Communist system common criminals (i.e. thieves) were treated harshly. Even more harshly treated were the fascists and other extremists of the previous regime. But those prisoners were treated the most harshly who were clergymen who belonged to a church or denomination. The tortures inflicted upon Richard Wurmbrand included such things such as being kicked in the face, having his throat slit from end to end, having his open mouth urinated into, being forced to sign a paper admitting that he was homosexual, and being kept in the dark for days on end.

Such things were done to prisoners in Hungary where my parents are from, and where I spent 18 years of my life.

Communism is appalling. It should never set foot in this country, and should be eradicated just like Nazism.

Communism was an atheistic religion.

The atheist religion is futile, since it does away with any possibility of attaining any absolute knowledge, in an attempt to be independent of God. Atheism is a religion, since its mantra states that nature is everything. If consistent, all atheists would have to throw up their hands and declare that all they know is that they know nothing. Atheists cannot be dogmatic that there are no dogmas. This is where consistent doubt leads to. Only belief in God allows one to be sure that one has any knowledge of any truth. This is because if God created everything, then God knows everything, and can impart this knowledge to His creatures.

Many evidences from nature disprove atheism, and proves what the Bible says. Science did not begin with Darwin, but rather, the modern scientific method was developed by theistic scientists. Matter simply cannot and did not cause itself. The fact that engineers create machines which are simpler versions of structures found in nature heavily implies that organisms themselves were designed and created. The fossil record consistently shows that there are large gaps in between different clades (i.e. vertebrates and invertebrates). There are literaly thousands of living fossils, which through their non-change disprove evolution. Red blood cells and organic materials on dinosaur bones (such as non-bacterial histone proteins) show that dinosaur fossils are young. Organisms are so complex, so as to necessitate multiple complex mutations to bring about a single, simple morphological structure. The mind, the emotions, the intellect could not have evolved from unconscious entities. Conserved genetic elements abound and are everywhere. The probability that the minimal organism with 1000 genes evolved is around 10-162500 (the sheer minimality of this probability shows that evolution could not have happened). A Science paper, albeit 21 years ago showed that mitochondrial Eve was a mere 6,500 years old. Human chromosome 2 did not evolve from chimpanzee chromosome 2a and 2b, and the difference between human and chimpanzee DNA is only 80% due to missing stretches of the genome between the two species. The very idea of human evolution has led to racism, Nazism, and the Holocaust (besides Communism as previously mentioned) based on the theory of multiregional evolution of erectines to modern humans in different parts of the world. Life appeared on earth very suddenly during the supposed Cambrian explosion, along with all known families of protein sequences. The widespread presence of monophyletic groups in nature support the Biblical concept of created kinds (see Genesis 1:14).


Evolution thus does not have the answers. It is basically an argument based on rebellion against God’s Word. As we have also seen, it has produced some of the worst fruits ever seen in history. The only solution is to repent and acknowledge God as Creator, and Judge Who sent His Son into this world to die for our sin born from our rebellion against Him. There is no such thing as independent truth, since all truth is God’s truth. Believe in Christ Who gave Himself for your sins. Repent and be reconciled with God.


And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. (Acts 17:30-31)
