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.

Predictable Accusation

"This is because it is impossible for God to lie--But he does lie by proxy: 'Chronicles 2 18:19... 14:8--9 'And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.' 2 Thess. 2:10,11 'And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.'" Froggie

When I said that it was impossible for God to lie, I thought of how atheists would predictably accuse God of sending lying spirits, etc.

There is a principle in Scripture that is very consistent, and you and I should get used to it, because God isn’t going to change. It is the principle that if you give yourself to evil, there comes a point where God will give you over to it. If you refuse to embrace the truth, God Himself will send you "strong delusion." Atheists will predictably say that they are therefore not responsible for sin, because God made them do it. That one doesn't even work in civil court.

The principle is seen in Romans 1, where the evil that is committed is so abhorrent, God gives them over to a "reprobate" mind. Some of you may already be at that point. No matter what is said to you, you deliberately misread the words, twist Scripture, and accuse God (who, in your mind, doesn’t exist) of sin.

All I can do is hope that that isn’t so, and keep pleading with you to take the log out of your own eye before you try and pick a speck out of God’s eye. That "speck" doesn’t exist. He is without sin, and all of His judgments are in righteousness, as you will see on Judgment Day. But then it will be too late.
