That They May Be Without Excuse!

God is ever evident, while the best of men are quite limited! Watching major TV analysts, who are skilled, highly trained professionals, batter one another over some moral issue or legal procedure, it breeds skepticism that a man like Moses could lift a staff over the Red Sea and make dry land appear (Exodus 14:10-16) until...I take a breath of fresh air, and realize over 7 billion people all around the earth are doing the same!! Such a known phenomenon makes Moses’ act into a miniature moment and quite believable! Not man, but our Maker, has both the authority, power and solutions (Matt. 28:18; John 6:63). 

When scientists with multiple academic degrees question the Bible, and make mockery of its claims for miracles (like making the blind to see; stilling a storm; raising the dead, etc.), it surely breeds doubt in folks with limited education until—one notices the sun arise each morning and observes the moon and stars each night. Then one realizes that such mindboggling power is daily projected for all to see (Read Psalm 19:1-3). Belief in God and His Word becomes quite natural! 

When humanistic philosophers and mental giants affirm that there are no absolutes (each situation must dictate the human response), and there follows a trail of injustices and uncertainties, lowly, untrained minds with no real solution for the domestic, social, and governmental unfairness, some are challenged to accept the New Age Philosophy that there are no real rules or absolutes, until...one realizes that every dooms day disciple is subject to one absolute rule—Gravity! Without that rule each “New Age” neophyte would become a human missile, flying off into space without a space ship to protect him nor a tracking station to direct him! That one rule makes it natural and sensible to accept the Truth that Jesus Christ is Lord and in Him all things “hold together” (Colossians 1:12-18). Just pause and look! The Lord’s rules are evident and active all about us by night and by day! 

Paul had it right when he boldly stated that he was not ashamed of the Gospel, for by it all can be saved; the righteousness and wrath of God are therein revealed; and folks like us are “without excuse” (Romans 1:16-20). Our need is to believe and obey (I John 4:14; II Cor. 5:21; Acts 4:12; Heb. 5:8,9).
