The Moral Argument for God’s Existence.

  An atheist might say you can be good without believing in God. However the question isn’t can you be good without believing in God but can you be good without God? Here’s the problem if there’s no God. What basis remains for objective good or bad, right or wrong? If God does not exist objective moral values do not exist. Here’s why. Without some objective reference point we    really have no way of saying something is up or down. Gods nature however provides an objective reference point for moral values. It’s the standard which all action and thoughts are measured. However, if there is no God then there is no objective reference point. All we are left with is one persons view point as opposed to some other persons view point. This makes morality subjective not objective.  It’s like a preference for vanilla ice cream. The preference is in the subject not the object. Therefore it doesn’t apply to other people. In the same way subjective morality applies only to the subject. It’s not va

Once Saved NOT Always Saved?

We all have our moments of weakness. However, moments of weakness is not the same as a life style of unrepentant sin.

In our every day lives as followers of Jesus Christ we have good days, ok days and bad days. Good days are when we get through a day and don't blow it. We don't lie, steal, curse, lust or flip someone off, either physically or mentally. Ok days are when we maybe have low blood sugar, haven't gotten enough sleep, physically sick or emotionally drained because of the circumstances of life and we blow it. We get unnecessarily angry at someone. We tell a lie because it's easier then telling the truth at the time. We aren't kind when we should be. We just don't want to be bothered by others even it mean helping them out. Bad days are when we willful just sin and we know it. We are on the Internet and we start visiting site we know are inappropriate. We engage in a conversation that's nothing more then gossip because it's about a person you just don't like at the time. Or you take something that you know is not yours and it looks like it really doesn't belong to anyone else but you take it anyways. Maybe you just flip out on someone while you're driving.

These are moments of weakness that a true follower of Jesus will usually ask forgiveness for when the Holy Spirit convicts them. We don't at those moments lose our salvation. Nothing in scripture would suggest this. However, we do see that when these moments become patterns in the life of someone that confesses Jesus as Lord and Savior. Galatians 5:19-21 (NIV) The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. (also Luke 12:40-46) This is where there is no seeking of forgiveness, where there is a mental attitude of justification, where there maybe false humility with no repentance, and this becomes a pattern of their lives, if they were to meet Jesus in this state Jesus would assign them a place with the unbelievers.

The difference between those with weak moments and those with an unrepentant lifestyle is one has enough oil to meet the bridegroom and the other doesn't because one lives for Jesus and the other lives for self.

Luke 12:46 (NIV)
[46]  The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

Matthew 24:50-51 (NIV)
[50] The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. [51] He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Being ready as a believer is not about not sinning. It's about not given up living for Jesus.

2 Timothy 2:10-13 (ESV)
[10] Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. [11] The saying is trustworthy, for:
 If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
[12]  if we endure, we will also reign with him;
 if we deny him, he also will deny us;
[13]  if we are faithless, he remains faithful—
 for he cannot deny himself.
