An unwanted conversation

MJBubba:

Ms. H.:
I will argue with anyone who purports to know.  No one does.

What proof or authority are you using to make this pronouncement ?

That  I will argue?  My personal authority.

I think when you use your personal authority regarding spiritual matters that you are putting yourself onto really thin spiritual ice.

That no one knows?  Oh, come on!!!Because no human that I have ever encountered, nor heard tell of, …

Of course you have heard tell; you have simply decided to reject the testimony of the witnesses.

…remembers where or what he or she was before birth.

Are you now talking of reincarnation? The spiritual confusion compounds.

Nor has any  human being ever returned from death  to tell us what that’s like.

That’s my “proof” that  no living human knows about God.

Once again you are rejecting the testimony of the witnesses.

Now, in the OT, you didn’t need faith: God would come take you on a picnic, like He did with the Hebrew elders on Sinai. He’d do tricks like he did for Gideon! He’d incinerate people, like Aaron’s sons— and animal carcasses, like he did in the contest with Baal.

You can scoff and mock all you like. There are eternal consequences.

But now, I think you’d have to agree, we see through a glass darkly.  We do not know.

Agreeing that our knowledge is limited is very different from insisting that we have no knowledge at all. I reject your premise that says the only acceptable witness testimony is your own.

You shall have no other gods

The world takes offense at God.   The Pagans hated the idea that their gods have no real power.   The Muslims and the Mormons are counterfeits of God.   Buddhists say that “God” is not a real person, but a spiritual amalgam.   Atheists are angry at the God they don’t believe in.

Communists, being Atheists, are angry at God.   So the latest outrage from China comes as no surprise.   The First Commandment is outlawed.   It started recently in just one church that we know of, but the Party statements indicate that this is a nationwide China policy:

One of the officials explained, however, that Chinese President Xi Jinping “opposes the statement,” referring to the first commandment.

“Who dares not to cooperate? If anyone doesn’t agree, they are fighting against the country,” the official warned. “This is a national policy. You should have a clear understanding of the situation. Don’t go against the government.”

The church was forced to take down the Ten Commandments sign that day.
