Why was Jesus necessary?

Jesus was necessary because mankind, as a result of Adam’s sin/disobedience, fell under the curse of sin as children of Adam. Our sin created a chasm, a divide, between mankind and God because our God is perfect holiness, righteousness, justice, and God will not permit sin to dwell in His Kingdom and God will not permit sin to go unpunished and without judgment (Revelation 21:27; Ecclesiastes 12:14); therefore, without a Mediator for our sin, mankind has no hope of life in Eternity but only death in sin and death in Hell (Acts 4:12).

As a result of our sin, we enter the World spiritually dead (Ephesians 2:1; Colossians 2:13) and our bodies also die physiologically/physically because of sin (Romans 6:23; 1 Corinthians 15:22). God the Father, to indicate how serious sin actually is, mandated that ONLY sinless, perfect, blood would be acceptable as payment for sin (Leviticus 17:11); unfortunately, the blood of animals could NOT take away sin (Hebrews 10:4-6); therefore, God Himself left eternity and entered Time through the womb of a virgin (Philippians 2:8; Matthew 1:23). It was necessary that Jesus be born of a virgin in order to avoid the seed of Adam through Joseph, because it is the seed of Adam, the man, that transmits the sin-nature to all of mankind (1 Corinthians 15:22).

Jesus is the ONLY One who is both “sinless” and therefore “acceptable” to God the Father as a sacrifice for sin; for this reason, God gave His only Son to die in our place so that we could receive Jesus’ perfection, His righteousness over our life and by doing so, we can find forgiveness of sin and life in Eternity with God the Father (2 Corinthians 5:21). Without Jesus as our Lord and Mediator for sin, mankind has no hope of life in God’s Kingdom (John 8:24).

How can one receive forgiveness of sin and life in Eternity with God the Father?

It is by repenting of our sin (turning away from wilful sin) (Acts 17:30), believing in our heart, confessing with our mouth that Jesus is God who died to pay our sin-debt and that He was resurrected for our justification…it is by believing and confessing Jesus as our Lord that we find righteousness (a right standing) with God the Father through the forgiveness of sin (Romans 10:9-10; Romans 10:13; Acts 2:21). There is no other way to find forgiveness of sin and life with God the Father but through faith in Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior; no one else was qualified to pay the price for our sins but Jesus Christ, alone (John 14:6).

Millennial’s Advocate for Communism – Why?

America has fallen under God’s wrath for our shedding of innocent blood; some 61-million babies, God’s children, have been slaughtered by abortion subsequent to Roe v. Wade (1973). Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) – Same-sex Marriage, was the straw that broke the camels back concerning God’s anger toward America and we have lost our children…they have been taken away from us and given to another people i.e. Progressive-Socialists and Evolutionists i.e. Atheists, who have trained them in the ways of the Satanic in our institutions of higher learning (the public education system) throughout America (Deuteronomy 28:32).

As a result, brainwashed-clueless, historically ignorant, godless, Millennial’s and Gen-Z servants of Satan are entering the voting booth in exponentially increasing numbers and they will ultimately destroy America’s Constitutional Republic. We see the underpinnings in today’s Progressive-Socialist Party i.e. the Democrat Party who is, as I type this, instigating a coup de taut against President Trump in Congress via impeachment.

America is reaping what She has sown and we, the Boomer-Generation, have no one to blame but ourselves for allowing Socialists-Atheists-Secularists-Globalists to rape the minds of our children through Darwin’s evolution insanity and revisionist history.

Manpons-LGBTQ and God’s Truth

My first assignment as a young police officer in Houston, TX was the Montrose which is one of the largest homosexual communities in the Nation. It was rather common knowledge that homosexuals used devices called “butt plugs” to block the fecal matter from flowing-out of a damaged anal sphincter muscle due to repeated homosexual anal sex; therefore, “Manpons” are not something that is farfetched. When you allow another man to tear-apart your anal orifice through defiled homosexual sex, you reap what you sow…God is not mocked. The anus was “created” for expulsion not intercourse.

It is written in God’s word…

For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. Romans 1:26-27 (NASB)

Veterans Day – A Message to the Progressive-Socialist

A message to the Progressive-Socialist on this Veterans Day Holiday (2019)…

God Bless our Veterans and Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

To every Progressive-Socialist Snowflake falsely claiming the title “American Citizen,” I wanted you to know, on this Veterans Day Holiday, that your support and advocacy for Socialism-Leninism/Communism-Marxism i.e. Progressive-Socialism represented by the Democrat Party defiles you as one who defecates on the grave of every American man and woman who fought and died to defend America and our allies from the demonic perversity that is Socialism-Communism.

The Progressive Socialist is not a thankful or appreciative individual but they should be very thankful that I am not in a position of authority concerning their status as a citizen of the United States. Socialism-Marxism-Islam are enemies of America’s Constitutional Republic – America’s representative democracy and if I were in charge, every Progressive-Socialist traitor in the United States would lose their citizenship immediately and be provided one-of-two-options concerning their future:
1) Incarceration for life for treason.
2) Deportation without appeal or the ability to recant and remain.

The Progressive-Socialist in America is representative of the most bloody (abortion-child mutilation), sexually perverse, historically ignorant, Darwin deceived – godless, sissified-spoiled, generation to have existed in the 243-year history of the greatest Nation God has given mankind i.e. the United States of America.

The Progressive-Socialist will be the death of America and because of their defiled and demonically-based ideology under girded by ignorance-aberrant lust-selfishness, our posterity is destined to suffer horrifically; this, because cowards and corrupt men and women in our Federal-State-County-Local Government did not have the courage, tenacity, love of Country, to crush the head of the demonic snake – Satan represented by Progressivism.

Atheist mocks “belief” in God as a “concept”…a discussion…

Atheist mocks “belief” in God. Okay, let’s discuss that…

Atheist, Mark D, stated: “Can belief give rise to God’s existence? Yes, because God is a concept and concepts are thought based. When someone says that they believe in God, what they really mean is that they believe in the concept that they have formed in their mind. The existence of God outside of the mind is not something that can be determined by human intellect. The God that Christians, Jews, and Muslims worship is invented. It is a product of human thought that has no basis in fact and no confirming empirical evidence. What they worship is not God, but themselves. What say you?”

Response to the Atheist…

Once again, Mark is a voice for Satan. The Christian has not invented God but the Christian has observed the supernatural evidence provided us by the Moon, Stars, Sun, the complex human genome and logically, reasonably, empirically, inferred/deduced by said evidence that design is in play; therefore, a Designer is mandated (Romans 1:18-32).

An honest person will pursue the evidence in Nature provided them and search for the Name, the identity, of the One who designed our supernatural Universe and brought life into existence. Science and historical science, evolution, have NOT a clue concerning origin of matter and life. The Vedas is laughable; the Quran is plagiarized from the Jewish Torah by the false prophet Muhammad; the Egyptian Gods and Greek mythology, well, these are simply a very bad story; therefore, when one finally opens the Holy Bible, they find the Signature of our Creator in Chapter-one-page-one and that same Creator is confirmed over-and-over-again throughout the Covenant of Law and the Covenant of Grace.

When one seeks-out the Truth and possesses a contrite, humble, honest, heart, they will discover that Christianity is the only coherent worldview with corresponding truth that defines origin-meaning-morality-destiny and directly answers with logical consistency, empirical adequacy, experiential relevance. When one truly trusts in Jesus Christ as Lord, the mysteries of the Universe, Life, Time, Eternity, are answered. There is ONE God and ONE Mediator for sin, Jesus Christ.

“There are honest doubters and dishonest doubters. An honest doubter is willing to search out the truth and live by the results; a dishonest doubter doesn’t want to know the truth. He can’t find God for the same reason a thief can’t find a policeman.” Adrian Rogers

What is Authentic Christianity?

Christian? What defines a true Christian? Unfortunately, most Atheists don’t know. Let’s discuss that…

“for God is not a God of confusion, but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints,” 1 Corinthians 14:33 (NASB)

“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NASB)

Introduction

Having debated the Atheist ad nauseam, I am often confronted by Atheists who lack knowledge relevant to true, Biblical, Christianity. The Atheist oftentimes incorrectly identifies a groundswell of religions, cults, sects, falsely flying under the banner of Christianity as actually being Christian; the Atheist does not understand that these pagan cults and religions reject the core tenets of the Christian faith and Scripture and are therefore, at best, a Christian-cult.

In addition, the Atheist is quick to accuse Christianity of atrocities over the Centuries subsequent to Messiah’s Ascension, but when challenged, these atrocities were not Christian oriented at all, they were deeds performed in the name of Roman Catholicism or by men and women who “claimed” to be Christian but their actions were a direct contradiction to their profession. Jesus has told us that we would know them by their works; that a man or woman can be identified by the way they act (Matthew 7:15-20). So then, what is a true Christian?

Subsequent to the death, burial, resurrection, of Jesus Christ-Yeshua, self-serving, greedy for money and power, men and women throughout the Centuries following that cataclysmic event have sought to re-define the Person and Deity of Messiah-Jesus and His purposes relevant to Time and Eternity.

These self-indulgent men and women polluted and convoluted the Truth of Jesus Christ, the simplicity of His message, the Gospel (Good News); The Gospel, a written Covenant of Grace between God the Father established by the work, obedience and sacrifice of the Son, Jesus Christ-Yeshua at the Crucifixion and said Covenant having been Sealed and Guaranteed as binding by God the Holy Spirit and articulated-chronicled within the written word of God as inspired by the Holy Spirit (John 3:16: Ephesians 1:13-14).

Who is a “true” Christian according to the written word of God?

The Authority of God’s Word

1) A true-authentic Christian is a man, woman, child, who sincerely believes that the Holy Bible, the Scriptures, the written Word of God, is the Holy Spirit inspired mind of God penned on parchment by specific holy men of old who were chosen to chronicle and safeguard those words by inspiration of the Holy Spirit; the Christian believes that the Original Scriptures are the absolute perfect Truth, inerrant, irrefutable, words of God to mankind given as a gift, a love letter, to human KIND from our Creator so that every man, woman, child, can personally know God the Father, God the Son – Jesus Christ, God the Holy Spirit and God’s perfect will for Time, Eternity and our individual lives.

The Christian believes that the same God who created Time, the Universe, the complex human genome, is perfectly capable of articulating, chronicling, protecting and transmitting His written word down through Time so that His creation can know Him, love Him, commune with Him, forever.

The Confession

2) A true, authentic, Christian is one who has agreed with God the Father that they’re a sinner (Romans 3:23) and has agreed to repent, turn-away from their sin and sincerely believe in their heart, confess with their mouth that Jesus Christ is the Eternal God who died to pay their sin-debt, a debt that they could not pay, and that Jesus Christ was resurrected for their justification leading to eternal life in the Kingdom of God subsequent to death of their body constrained by the Realm of Time (Romans 10:9-10; John 8:24; Philippians 2:8; 2 Corinthians 5:8).

The Guarantor of Relationship

3) It is the true and authentic Christian that has received the indwelling Holy Spirit of Promise as the Seal and Guarantor of the Covenant of Grace with God the Father as established by grace through faith in Jesus Christ-Yeshua as Lord for the mediation of sin (Ephesians 1:13-14; Acts 19:2; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; 2 Corinthians 5:5; Ephesians 4:30).

The Exclusivity of Jesus Christ as Lord

4) A true and authentic Christian believes and understands that there is absolutely NOTHING they can do to earn or deserve the Gift of Salvation that provides a pardon from death in sin and the second death in Hell. The true Christian knows that there is no work, no philanthropic endeavor, no personal sacrifice, that can earn God the Father’s forgiveness of sin (Ephesians 2:8-9).

A true Christian knows, believes and understands that Jesus Christ, through His suffering and death at the Crucifixion, performed the work of Salvation on our behalf i.e. Christ died to provide mankind a pardon from sin and death in Hell (2 Corinthians 5:21).

The true and authentic Christian believes and understands that ONLY by grace (unmerited favor – that which cannot be earned by human effort) through faith (trusting-believing with a sincere heart) that Jesus Christ – Yeshua is God who died to pay our sin-debt; only by believing and so confessing can a man or woman find forgiveness of sin leading to Eternal life with God the Father in the Kingdom of God (Romans 10:9-10).

Caveat: Does water Baptism save?

The Christian understands that the act or work of water Baptism does NOT save anyone but that water Baptism is obedience to the command of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20) and that water Baptism is a demonstration to the World that the Christian has placed their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

The Christian understands that water Baptism represents the death-burial-resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and represents our pledge before man and God to walk in a new life, the new birth, received by our confession of Jesus as Lord before the act of Baptism (John 3:3; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; John 3:36; John 3:18; John 14:6).

Obedience – Validation of Salvation

5) The true and authentic Christian understands and believes that though they cannot work them self into God’s favor relevant to salvation/the forgiveness of sin, the Christian understands that “subsequent” to having entered into a relationship with God the Father by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, alone, the Christian understands that works – obedience – servitude to God is essential because it is the works-obedience of the Christian SUBSEQUENT to salvation that provides validation of the authenticity of the Christian’s relationship with God and the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit (James 2:26; Ephesians 1:13).

Justification and Sanctification

True and authentic faith/salvation i.e. “Justification” will be demonstrated by the process of “Sanctification” as the Christian walks daily, matures daily, by the tutelage, intercession, wisdom, discernment, of the indwelling Holy Spirit (1 John 2:27). Sanctification, the incremental maturation process of the Christian, is achieved by diligent, fervent, study of the written word of God via the tutelage of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 2:15; 1 John 2:27).

Disdain for Wilful Sin

The true and authentic Christian no longer desires to live in willful sin against God neither in word, thought or deed, but the authentic Christian seeks to live a life of obedience to God’s will and always, continually, seeks to please and honor God the Father through obedience to His written word, the Scriptures and His Living Word, Jesus Christ. (James 2:14-26; Galatians 5:16-23; John 1).

The Struggle between Two-Natures

6) The true and faithful Christian understands that even though they have been “born again” by the Holy Spirit as a result of their belief-faith in Jesus Christ as Lord, the Christian is aware that in the new-nature imparted by the indwelling Holy Spirit they will struggle with the old sinful-nature that remains behind due to the body of death that constrains-houses the spirit of man in the Realm of Time (Romans 7:14-25); therefore, the true and authentic Christian strives for excellence and perfection in their daily walk with God (Galatians 5:16).

Security of the Believer

There is also an understanding that sin is ever-present and in the struggle between the new-man v. the old-sin-nature the Christian knows that unintentional sin does not threaten the security of their eternal relationship with God (John 10:27-29). When the Christian does sin by omission or commission, they are to seek forgiveness for that sin – NOT to reestablish their salvation which is secure in the Holy Spirit forever (John 10:27-30) – but the Christian seeks forgiveness in order to reestablish and reaffirm intimacy with God the Father as the Christian knows that sin fractures intimacy through our conscience and it is intimacy-joy-peace-contentment with our God that is paramount and cherished above all else in the life of the faithful Christian (1 John 1:9; 1 John 2:1-2; Romans 5:1).

Summation

So then, we see that a Christian is one who has repented of sin, believed in and confessed Jesus Christ as Lord, exclusively, for the forgiveness of sin; we see that salvation manifests not by works, not by deeds, not by Baptism, not by men, not by Church membership, not by family affiliations, not by indulgences, not by birth, but ONLY by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord – exclusively.

What is False Christianity?

Anything, anyone, who denies the sole-sufficiency of Jesus Christ-Yeshua as God for the forgiveness of sin, that person is NOT a Christian. Any “religion” or “sect” or “cult” or “denomination” that denies the SOLE-sufficiency of Jesus Christ as Lord for the forgiveness of sin is NOT Christian.

There is a plethora of counterfeit “Christian” religions in the World and there are “many” counterfeit Christians in the World (Matthew 7:22-24) and anyone who adds anything to or detracts from the purity, simplicity, of the Gospel of Jesus Christ that demands the sole-sufficiency of Jesus as Lord for the forgiveness of sin leading to eternal life, that person or institution denying the Deity of Christ (John 8:24) or adding works, behavior, deeds, money-indulgences, the Mass, Baptism, the pagan Doctrine of Tongues, to earn or confirm one’s salvation, that person or institution is NOT of God and they are NOT Christian but they are heretical and damned lest they repent of their false doctrines of denying the exclusivity of Messiah-Jesus as Lord (Matthew 24:36; 7:15-20; 2 Timothy 4:3-4; Acts 20:28-30; 1 John 4:1-6; 2 Peter 1:12-21; 2 Peter 2; Ephesians 2:8-9).

A few examples of Cults and Religions that fly under the banner of Christianity but are NOT Christian

1) Roman Catholicism: Catholicism is a “works” salvation, a pagan religion that rejects the simplicity, exclusivity, of Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior, Redeemer. Catholicism has never been Christian. Catholicism was founded by Constantine in 312-313AD via the Edict of Milan by merging Babylonian Paganism/Roman Paganism with elements of Christian and non-Christian (Apocrypha) doctrine in order to make the pagan religion palatable to the masses.

The Mass; The Sacraments; Transubstantiation; Purgatory; The Rosary; Statues in Worship; The Perpetual Virginity of Mary as the Goddess of Heaven; The Idolatry of Mary Worship; calling Catholic Leadership as “Father;” confessing sin to a Priest; The Magisterium; Indulgences; these are NOT Scriptural and undermine the purity and simplicity of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord; thereby, leading the innocent millions/billions in the way of deception and hopelessness. Tragically, the Catholic parishioner never knows for certain if they are saved or condemned due to false Catholic Church doctrine and Church tradition of men.

“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.” 1 John 5:13 (NASB)

2) The Church of the Latter-Day Saints – Mormons: Mormonism is a works salvation – Christian cult. Mormonism teaches doctrines that are in direct contradiction to the essentials of the Christian faith. Mormonism denies the true nature of God, the true nature of Christ, and the true nature of salvation.

Mormonism teaches that the forgiveness of sin is obtained by obedience to the laws (works salvation) and ordinances of the Mormon church. Mormons will claim they are Christians because they say they follow the Jesus of the Bible, in reality, they are following a false Christ. Jesus is not the brother of the devil as Mormonism teaches. Jesus is the second Person of the Trinity. Jesus did not atone for our sins in the garden of Gethsemane as Mormonism teaches; Jesus died to pay our sin-debt at the Crucifixion (1 Peter 2:24; John 3:16).

Mormon’s, in their book “Doctrines of Salvation,” vol. 1, page 188, claim that there is no salvation without accepting Joseph Smith as a prophet of God. Joseph Smith is the founder of Mormonism. Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6 (NASB) See: (https://carm.org/mormonism/is-mormonism-cult)

3) The Jehovah’s Witnesses: A works salvation-cult that denies the exclusivity and deity of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Jehovah’s Witnesses reject the doctrine of the Trinity and claim that Jesus was not divine and that the Holy Spirit is an “active force” and not a Person of the Trinity. Jehovah’s Witness’ organization distorts the essential doctrines of Christianity by denying the deity of Jesus Christ, His physical resurrection, and salvation by grace through faith, alone.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses, to support their false doctrines, has altered the Canon Bible to make it agree with its changing and non-Christian teachings. The Jehovah’s Witnesses consider themselves to be Christians because they believe they are serving the true and living God yet they deny the Trinity, the deity of Christ, the person-hood of the Holy Spirit, Jesus’ physical resurrection, and salvation by grace through faith, alone. See: (https://carm.org/is-the-jehovahs-witness-religion-christian)

Jesus said that unless you believe He is God, you will die in your sins…

“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.” John 8:24 (NASB)

4) Pentecostalism – Charismatic non-denominationalism: Though these charismatic Churches do follow Christian doctrine rather closely, far too many make the heretical error of teaching the cultic practice of ecstatic utterances or speaking in an unknown tongue. A pagan practice that finds its pagan roots in Delphi, a town in ancient Greece across the bay from Corinth. The pagan activities-traditions-practices in the pagan temple located in Delphi obviously negatively affected the Christian Church at Corinth.

Intoxicated oracles-utterances offered by a pagan priestess in the Temple of Delphi carried-over into the Christian Church at Corinth creating much confusion and division. Charismatic denominations today teach this pagan practice of speaking in an unknown tongue thereby morphing themselves into a pagan cult; these charismatic Churches err doctrinally when they require their parishioners, even children, to speak in an unknown tongue, unintelligible gibberish, to authenticate their salvation and prove the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Such pagan oriented practices place tremendous burdens on sincere seeking men and women and children, burdens that God the Father NEVER intended for them to bear and when these parishioners are honest with themselves and admit they don’t actually speak in an unknown tongue, confusion, doubt, worry, fret, consume them because they never know for sure if they’re saved or condemned to Hell. This is heresy!

Conclusion

Jesus said:

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NASB)

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6 (NASB)

The Apostle Paul, by inspiration of the Holy Spirit said,

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (NASB)

The simplicity of the Gospel must not be defiled by men. It is God the Father who has given the Son, Jesus Christ, to die for the sins of mankind and only by trusting in Jesus as Lord can mankind find forgiveness of sin and life in Eternity in God’s Kingdom. Nothing more, nothing less than Jesus, alone, will find righteousness (a right standing) with God the Father through the forgiveness of sin!

Atheist – Morality – Nietzsche?

Atheist mocks Christian morality by suggesting Nietzsche has a better way. Let’s discuss that.

Atheist, Mark D. stated: “Friedrich Nietzsche argued that there were two fundamental types of morality: “master morality” and “slave morality”. Master morality values pride and power, while slave morality values things like kindness, empathy, and sympathy. Master morality weighs actions on good or bad consequences, unlike slave morality, which weighs actions on a scale of good or evil intentions. Shouldn’t Christians be concerned that they have adopted a slave morality, given the fact that a morality based on consequences has proven throughout history to be more beneficial than one based on intentions?”

Response to the Atheist…

Mark, you will NOT find truth or life by groveling at the feet of Satan and his representatives in time exemplified by demonic-men like Nietzsche, Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, Dillahunty. Mark, you’ll only find death and Hell in servitude to these fleshly demons.

Mark, the atheist, seeks his wisdom from an atheistic demon named Nietzsche, a self-proclaimed anti-christ. Mark suggests there is a “master morality” and a “slave morality” and then equates Christian morality to a “slave morality” where behavior is evaluated on a scale of good or evil intentions. Mark, I ask you, who defines what is good or evil? Men or God?

Source of morality for the Christian…

Sadly, Mark and an overwhelming number of Atheists have absolutely no idea what defines a true Christian. I will elaborate on this subject in another Post if time permits. Christians have ONE-form of morality i.e. the objective moral law which has been written upon the heart of human KIND by our Creator at conception (Romans 2:15). It is the Christian, by the power, wisdom, discernment and influence of the indwelling Holy Spirit that seeks to do good; to love and honor their fellowman; to love God – Family – Country and to honor God through obedience to His written word and His Living Word, Jesus Christ. Christians seek good because they are “born again” by a Good-God and have internalized His Nature via the indwelling Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14); therefore, Christians don’t evaluate behavior/morality based on one’s intentions but by what our Creator has said and obedience to His Law infused within our inner-man at conception. Christians seek moral good because their new nature via the Spirit desires good and the Christian seeks to honor and please our God who is the definition of “Good.”

Source of morality for the Atheist…

The atheist, on the other hand, espouses an alternate form of morality i.e. Moral Relativism, a rejection of God’s morality by aligning with a demonically-based ideology that promulgates the demonic-secularist paradigm of “if it feels good, do it”; Mark, this form of “morality” is not based on consequences; Mark, moral relativism espouses NO consequences for behavior, the moral relativist insists that there are no ramifications for sin; every man and woman is free to do what is right in their own eyes (Judges 17:6); therefore, murder/mutilate your baby in the womb if the child is inconvenient; enjoy and engross yourself in vile sexual immorality void shame, embarrassment, blushing i.e. homosexuality-lesbianism-bestiality-pedophilia-transsexualism; laugh and mock at the idea of a Biblical family unit promoting a stable, moral, law abiding, society espousing sustainable mores, norms, values, under girded by a belief that all men and women, from the womb to the tomb, are of value because they are created in the image of God; Atheism espouses “just do as you please” because in Atheism and its demonic tenet Nihilism, there is no God, there is no justice, there is no meaning in life; nihilism is king and one’s genitalia is to be worshiped and pleased at all cost.

Conclusion

Atheism is an untenable ideology of the demonic involving spiritual death culminating in death in sin and death of the body and soul in Hell in futility. Atheism is likened to a metastasizing sociological cancer that destroys the mind, body, soul, of a society and the individual in both Time and Eternity.

NOTE: In the attached MEME describing the Atheist, “Gentiles” in this context represents the unfaithful, the unbeliever, the Atheist.
