Beneficial Isn’t Always Good.

When I ask people who don’t believe in God to define what “Good” is I usually get something like this. “Good is that which helps most people live a good life. Something that benefits the species and keeps the species going.” For the most part that’s an okay definition. Though it’s too collective and subjective. Their definition wrongly equates “beneficial” with “Good.”

Let’s go into the hypothetical for a moment. Imagine nuclear holocaust happens. There is only one man and one woman alive. In order to keep the species going they must reproduce. Problem is that the woman doesn’t want to have sex. Would it be “good” for the man to rape and impregnate her to keep the species going? After all atheistic humanists contend that the purpose of life is to reproduce so the species continues.

One could make the argument that it would be beneficial to the species to do everything it takes to keep the species going in the above scenario. A sick argument. But one could make it. However, I do not believe that it would be objectively “Good.” It violates too many inherent values. The right for a human to live their own life as they choose. The value of the individual life. That which is objectively Good is not always beneficial. That which is beneficial is not always objectively Good. True Good I believe comes from God. Just like objective Truth. There must be a standard for Truth and Morality. I believe God is that Standard.

Britain Killed Baby Alfie.

It is a very sad day today. Little baby Alfie has died. The little boy who fought so hard to stay alive was murdered by the British government when they denied his family to take him to Italy for treatment. First Charlie, now baby Alfie. Say a prayer for those families today. Say a prayer for Britain today. The British people are subjects to a Nazi style government.

#alfieevens. #prayforalfie. #alfiesarmy.

Pray for Alfie.

This is Baby Alfie and his mother over in England. Alfie is sick and his parents put him into the hospital and the hospital is refusing to give him treatment. As of today Britain’s government has mandated Alfie’s life support to be unplugged. They have also demanded Alfie not be given food or water. The parents have appealed but the government (on multiple occasions) has shut them down refusing to help. The Pope has given Alfie Italian citizenship and has everything in place for him to get treatment in Italy. Britain has refused to let Alfie leave. They say he must die. It has come to the point that the parents have pleaded for 6 hours for the doctors to just give him water! The parents have been giving baby Alfie CPR to help keep him alive! What is happening to our cousins over the sea? This is governmental mandated murder. Pray for baby Alfie, his parents, and the citizens of Great Britain because they are all under the thumb of a tyrannical government. Pray that they can throw that government off of them.

Episode 21: Humanity’s Value

In today’s age, with what’s being taught in our schools about the origin of life can we honestly say that human beings are of value? If we all evolved from pond scum what right do you have to say that your life has any meaning or purpose? If God didn’t create us or give us value is there truly any meaning to what we do beyond the subjective and the temporary?

I understand, many of those questions are uncomfortable. But they must be thought through nonetheless. In today’s episode I try to talk through those questions and expose the fact that if evolution and atheism is true then our life is worthless and meaningless. However, if Christianity is true our lives are priceless and of the upmost importance.

The Heart of Gun Owners.

For many gun owners there are three things they are very familiar with. Responsibility, terror, and sadness.

Gun owners are responsible people who respect the constitution and the gun itself as a useful and deadly tool. They recognize that a gun has the potential of being deadly and because of this they take every precaution to secure it and keep everyone safe.

They are filled with terror. Now, when I say terror I don’t mean the same terror as crazy terrorist Muhammad. I mean ‘reverent fear.’ Gun owners are terrified that there may come a day that their life, or lives around them, are threatened and they will have to use that gun to protect people. No lawful gun owner ever chomps at the bit to use their gun on another human being. The thought that one day they may be forced to do that in self defense scares the Hell out of them. But, the fact of the matter is that reality shows that people are evil and there may come a day that good people may have to defend Life with a gun. This fact leads into the third and final aspect found in the gun owners heart. Profound sadness.

When a person buys a gun their reaction isn’t always, “oh hell yeah no one’s going to mess with me cause ‘Merica!” Many times, the thoughts going on in their head before, during, or after purchasing a firearm is, “God, it’s sad that this is necessity in our world. But, I know I have the right and responsibility to protect myself and those around me. This is necessary. I just hope I never have to use it on anyone.” When a gun owner thinks of reality and the fallen state of Man he becomes profoundly sad that a gun is necessary in our world. Nothing would make a gun owner happier than if Christ were to come back, set up an earthly kingdom, every human was perfect, and that they could then “beat their guns into plowshares.” But, the fact of the matter is that that hasn’t happened yet. People are still attacking each other, wars are still being waged, murder is still happening (and rising in countries with strict gun laws), rape happens, and governments still exterminate their people. All of this is part of reality and it must be understood and accepted. The gun owner does that and it makes him sad because of the state of humanity.

Because a gun owner recognizes reality they gain responsibility, terror, and profound sadness. So, the next time you hear someone say, or elude to, “gun owners are the problem.” Or, “the NRA is a terrorist organization.” Just remember, no law abiding gun owner ever wants to use their gun on anyone. But, they know that, because of the way things are, they might have to in order to defend Life. Gun owners are good people. Try to get to know one and ask them, “what made you decide to buy your first gun?”
