Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Christopher Hitchens: The Fool Says In His Heart There Is No God Psalms 14:1

Posted by Job on June 12, 2007

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ ”  Psalms 14:1

Why does the secular media love Christopher Hitchens and his new book, “God
is not Great, How Religion Poisons Everything.”  The Devotional today is NOT
a book review, the only book I review is the Bible.  The Devotional today
isn’t even about Christopher Hitchens, the British-born author, journalist,
and political commentator.  It is about the secular media’s love affair with
anyone who will boldly state there is no God and lambaste people of faith.
There is an insatiable appetite in the marketplace to eliminate God, dismiss
the Bible as Truth, and thoroughly reject faith in Jesus.

Of course the first logical question is why?  The answer is no more
complicated than the fact that the masses who have made the choice to live
in open rebellion to God do not want to be held accountable for their
choices.  Since they cannot see a person called God despite the overwhelming
evidence of His existence and presence, they have gone through the tortured
mental exercise of simply denying there even is a God.  In their drive to
live without being held accountable for their actions and choices, they have
taken the position that there simply is no God.

Once a person makes that foolish choice, you can easily see how rejecting
the Bible, rejecting Jesus Christ, embracing a theory like evolution, and
supporting others who are involved in every type of sin imaginable follows.
Obviously if you deny there even is a God, it makes it easy to dismiss the
book God wrote, the Bible, as simply a book “written by men” or a million
other idiotic responses you will get from people who have rejected the
Absolute Truth of God’s Word.  As I share with you often, the number one
reason people choose to reject the Bible is because it is the very Truth
that judges them.  Once again, those who choose to live in rebellion to God
and His Truth do not want to be held accountable for their actions.

How does a ridiculous “theory” like evolution become accepted by the
mainstream culture as the explanation for man’s existence?  Men can say they
never have seen God, therefore there is no God.  However, they are still
left with the little problem of explaining how we came to be.  So they have
turned to this laughable notion that we evolved from a drop of pond scum, to
a monkey, and voila, here we are!  LOL!  Of course they can never tell you
where that drop of pond scum, or where that first cell came from, or the
“big bang” that some claim started it all.  In the end, those who embrace
this “theory” are left flopping around like a fish out of water.

Sadly, when people choose to reject God they end up aligning themselves with
others who have also rejected God.  Again, this is how you end up with a
society that supports the slaughtering of innocent babies.  This is how you
end up with a society legitimizing and accepting the unnatural and unhealthy
sexual perversion of homosexuality.  Jesus said you can’t serve two masters.
Those who reject God and His Truth, have chosen to serve sin and follow
satan.  The Bible proclaims in the Book of James that, “You adulterous
people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God?
Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.”

THOSE WHO DENY THE EXISTENCE OF GOD, THOSE WHO REJECT THE TRUTH OF GOD’S
WORD, THOSE WHO REFUSE TO GIVE THEIR LIFE TO JESUS BY FAITH, ARE AN ENEMY OF
GOD!!!

Satan is the “prince of the power of the air” for a short season.  He has
dominion over the airwaves.  Why do you think you see a steady diet of sin,
of blasphemy, of the lies of the world, of anything that will lead people
away from God, Biblical Truth and faith in Christ 24/7/365 on TV,  the
radio, the movies, the Internet, and every form of media there is?  This is
why when an avowed atheist like Hitchens writes a book declaring God is not
great and tries to make a case that religion is the cause of all of man’s
and the world’s problems, the media falls over itself to put him on.

Let me help Chris.  God IS GREAT!  God is the Creator of the heavens and the
earth and all that exists including OUR CREATOR!  He is right that religion
does poison everything, since Christianity is not a religion, it is a faith.
The false religions and cults of the world are simply man’s spiritual
rebellion to the God of the Bible and His Truth.  The poison is actually the
sin that infests every aspect of our existence due to man’s rejection of God
and Biblical Truth.  That is why the only hope for man now and for all
eternity is faith in Jesus Christ.  He and He alone is the only answer.

I love you and care about you so much.  Sadly, Christopher Hitchens will
take his last breath one day soon and at that moment stand before the very
God whose existence he denies.  Sadly, at that moment he will be judged for
his sins and cast into the eternal fires of hell from which there will be no
escape.  That is the fate which awaits all of those who die rejecting Christ
as their Savior.  God loved His fallen creation so much that He made a way
for man to have an eternal relationship with Him by sending Jesus to die on
the cross as payment for man’s sins.  It is God’s desire that none be lost,
that all repent and be saved.

However, God gave Christopher Hitchens and all men the free will to make
their own choices.  They are free to love Him and live for Him, or reject
Him and even believe He doesn’t exist.  Each person has to make this choice
for themselves during their brief life, nobody can make it for them.  I pray
today that Hitchens will come to a place in his life where he will open his
heart to not only the existence of God, but God’s love for Him and the fact
Jesus died for his sins so that he would not have to spend eternity in hell.
Pray for him today, since God has given him a great gift to communicate and
he could become a powerful man of God and advocate for the Christian faith.

I will pray today for those people in your life who like Hitchens, have
chosen to deny the existence of God, reject the Bible as Truth, and have
refused to surrender their lives to Christ.  I pray that they will come to a
place in their life where God will be real to them, where His Word will
become the Truth they live by, and they will accept Jesus into their hearts
and lives by faith.  That is why it is so critical to preach the Gospel
without compromise and to reach out into the marketplace since that is where
the lost live.  That is also why we must find ways to bring the message of
God’s Truth and of Christ’s love to the secular media since that is the
communication tool the enemy uses to lead people away from God and to hell.

The fool says in his heart there is no God.  Most of those fools do come to
a place, maybe only once, when they are ripe to hear the Truth and the fact
there is not only a God, but a God who loves them!  It is at that moment
when the hardened hearts of men soften, they fall to their knees, and cry
out for Jesus to save them!  I see it happen every day here at Liveprayer.
Why do you think the fire burns within my belly to wake up each day and do
all I can to reach the lost and hurting?  It is God’s desire that NONE BE
LOST, that ALL COME TO REPENTANCE!  I possess the words of everlasting life,
how can I sit back and watch people die and go to hell without doing all I
can to let them know that Jesus loves them and wants to give them life, and
life everlasting!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller

    Sir, your impassioned speech is saturated with fanaticism, NOT LOVE. Predicting a firey end to Mr. Hitchen’s days because he does not share your beliefs is NOT CHRISTIAN TOLERANCE. Please thoroughly examine your own words before you release them! There is a very scary EITHER-OR to your speech; recognize that if issued in Arabic, your words would have sounded very much like some Extremist Islamic ‘our way or no way’ propaganda. What advances Christianity in our modern world is a strict adherence to offering and expressing love (love = 100% TOTAL acceptance of others) in as many situations as humanly possible. Anger towards this perceived media trend or no – you should hold back your knee-jerk reactions and attempt to emulate the late Mr. Rogers’ loving, God-fearing attitude towards others – rather than spouting off this emotionally-driven, finger-wagging hate speech.

  2. C Williams: So what, are you saying that Psalm 14:1 isn’t in the Bible or something? And as someone who watched Adrian Rogers for a good while now, I can assure you that he knew that Psalm 14:1 was in the Bible and believed it, just as he knew that John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (translation, Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven) and believed it.

  3. Michael Stand said

    We know what the bible says sir. Those are God’s words which we simply, are to obey. He didn’t state his words to endow us with his power. Just because God said something and we believe it, it doesn’t give us the right to use God’s words, our belief, to condemn others. John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Do you understand this? If you really understand this, then be a humble servant and stay out of God’s way as he does his work. You sin sir. God is trying to bring people to the light and you are working against God as you push many away. Stop the arrogance of your condemnation and humble yourself to God’s power.

    Religion is a cancer of programming. Religion should be forgotten…humanity isn’t six anymore…walk as the creator, you are god! what good have you created for someone else today? 🙂

  5. Pastafarian said

    You are wrong. People who reject religion do not do so in order to sin. They do so because they are logical and can see with plain sight that the existence of a magical creature that lives in the sky whom (if the creature exited) is unjust, homophobic and irrational bully is far to obscured to believe to be true. Without a shred of evidence to support a claim like this why would people believe? Why don’t you believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster? There is just as much if not more evidence to support his existence than your Gods so why did you choose yours? The answer is you didn’t you were likely brought up by a Christian family in a Christian country whom put their faith upon you during your upbringing. If you had been brought up in Ancient Greece do you think you would be following your one God or Zeus and the like?

    Atheists and Agnostics are just as likely or even less likely to commit “sin” as you are. This is because you and people like you will act upon religion regardless of how they truly feel as they believe it to be “the word of God”. Just look into the crusades, witch burning, paedophile priests etc. This is not to mention the child abuse you bestow on young members of the community who are told if they don’t follow these guidelines they will be tortured forever with hellfire. Your religion is just a form of control and just like the tobacco industry, catch them while their young via their “original sin”.

    Besides if I did commit a sin I would have the balls to acknowledge that is what I have done. That is what accountability is instead of claiming forgiveness from someone I can’t even prove existed. Is that just or is that accountability? Is that acceptable? What if you committed murder and the Judge let you go free because Jesus died for your sin? Is that just? No it isn’t.

    You can keep your God if that what he stands for.

    Peace

    Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” 1441, ex cathedra:

    “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only those who abide in it do the Church’s sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia productive of eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

    Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council I, Session 2, Profession of Faith, 1870, ex cathedra: “This true Catholic faith, outside of which none can be saved, which I now freely profess and truly hold…”

    This means the Catholic Church not the Vatican II false “church” under Antipope Benedict XVI.

  8. John Kaniecki said

    Rob,

    Hi hope you are well.

    So the Catholic church with it’s innumerable evils is the only way to salvation? Never mind the inquistion, the crusades and the persecution of those doing ‘great evils’ like translating the Bible into the common language.

    Never mind that the majority of Catholics never attend ‘church’ except on Christmas and Easter. Never mind the church teaches you can live however you please and in the last final minutes, confess your sins to some ‘father’, and poof your going to heaven.

    Never mind that the Catholic church contradicts so much with the Bible that it makes the sacred Words a mockery.

    You take the Catholic church, your ‘mother of God’ and all your saints. I’ll take Jesus.

    Love,

    John

    Wow, lots of hatred and self-righteousness on this website (in the article and the comments), I hope all disciples of Christ will learn from this and be wary of places that don’t promote the true love of God.

    “Wow, lots of hatred and self-righteousness on this website (in the article and the comments), I hope all disciples of Christ will learn from this and be wary of places that don’t promote the true love of God.”

    Daniel, the self-righteousness belongs to the atheists. Christians receive their own righteousness from the living God. The truth offends, but for a reason – to convict one of their sins. Hitchens, Dawkins et all are empty headed fools. They are not “intellectual giants” as the secular media portrays them. They are prideful, empty-headed, accusing, profane, Christ-hating mental midgets who have mocked God and reduced Him to a “wizard in the sky.” The rise of the “intellectual” atheist is merely a sign of the times, although denying the existance of God and accusing religion of perpetrating the world’s ills is hardly an intellectual achievement. Hitchens has even asked Christians to stop praying for him, lest his cancer be miraculously cured and the Believers claim it to be so. He would rather die in his sins rather than go to “a glorified North Korea where the Dear Leader is worshipped forever.” His own words! I rather fancy that once Hitchens breathes his last, two minutes after stepping into eternity he will wish he had never been born. But for him, the worst will not be over. He will come to the sudden realization that there is indeed a God, and one that will judge all mankind, including Hitchens and others who mocked and rejected the Cross of Christ. He will answer not just for himself, but for the millions he led astray in his futile war against Almighty God.
