Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

The Skeptic's Game

"According to the Christian Model, Hitler, as far as anyone knows, could very well be in Heaven right now, enjoying the fruits of his last minute redemption."

There’s a game that’s often played by skeptics. They create hypothetical scenarios so that they can (in their own minds) justify rejection of the gospel.

A drug addict is dying because of a disease that is related to his addiction. But when a faithful doctor takes the time to point out the evident symptoms that are all over the addict's flesh, he responds by saying that the hideous spots are normal, and that all his friends have them.

The doctor pleads with him to listen, and says that a large drug company has developed a cure for the fatal disease. To which the addict says, "What if an elephant fell from the sky and swallowed it before I could get to it? Huh doc. Huh! What about that? You and your stupid pill! I don’t believe the drug company even exists. You idiot. Rather than talk about this so-called disease and your brainless drug company, I want to talk about the age of this medical building."

Why would he acts in such a way? The answer is obvious. He loves his addiction. That’s why he has disdain for the faithful doctor, and the drug company he represents:

"And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed"(John 3:19-20).
