For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.(Ephesians 2:8-9) ESV
People seem genuinely surprised when we point out to them that, according to the Bible, there was a body of water present before creation. It’s was the deep.
Some folk are deeply concerned to learn that there was never, ever, nothing. Atheist science trolls (ASTs), however, have quick reflexes and they immediately respond by saying:
So where did the deep come from?– Atheist Science Troll
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
Or at least they used to. These days they don’t say anything at all because they’ve learned by now that every time they oppose us (that’s me and the Holy spirit) they expose their own ignorance. In the old days… theologically conservative Christians used to say something snippy and then go quiet. These days they’ve been warned to stay away and not to make any trouble. Every time they oppose us they expose their own ignorance.
Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: the gospel is still the gospel. Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and no other name will do.
This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”(Acts 4:11-12) KJV
And you definitely don’t need to join a cult, you need to get yourself to church. We’re not even fussy about what denomination, so long as they preach Christ crucified and risen again.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.(Hebrews 10:24-25) ESV
