Fixing Society

The unbeliever often tries to project his or her goals onto God. Sometimes, Christians do the same. They forget that the word, “Church,” means “called out.” We are called out of the world. Whoever is a friend of the world is an enemy of God. The world can’t be reformed anymore than the flesh can be reformed. This old world is stored up for fire. So is the flesh.

God’s goal is not to fix the old system. God’s goal is to destroy this current system and set up a new system, the Kingdom of God. Jesus told Pontius Pilate that His Kingdom is not of this Kosmos, which is a Greek word that means “ordered system.” If God’s goal had been to fix this old dying system, it would be fixed. God’s purpose is that we be conformed to the image of His Son. He has told us that there would be some time that would pass before the fulfillment.

Although the observable physical evidence supports God’s existence and His Truth without the mental gymnastics that the Atheists and Evolutionists find themselves tangled in, the reason that we believe is not based on physical evidence or human argument. It is based in the power of God Who speaks to us. Faithcomes by hearing and hearing by the word (utterance) of God. God speaks. God speaks to every person. Whoever will listen receives the faith that is of God. This is a supernatural belief that is not human-generated. It is a gift. That faith is the belief that what God has said is true and a trust in God that results in God’s grace flowing in and doing the works of God. Before a person is born again, there is a history of hearing God’s voice. No one can come to Christ unless the Father draws him or her. A person is born again the moment that he or she hears God’s voice and receives faith to believe in Jesus as Savior from sin. In the same way, it is God who speaks and says that the Bible is the Word of God without error. When we hear His voice, then His faith comes, the supernatural belief that the Bible is the Word of God without error. Once God opens our eyes, we see that the Bible is the only source that is both internally and externally consistent. We cannot possibly believe unless we are having an active interaction with our Maker. Some Christians are not aware enough of their own experience to know this. That’s why we have all the previously-mentioned reasons for believing the Bible as the Word of God. (some caveats about hearing God’s Voice)

Interestingly, explanation given in the previous paragraph does not depend on circular reasoning/poor logic. It depends on God. This is the kind of faith that is what is really operating. It is based on revelation. Now, a naturalist will attack the whole idea of revelation claiming that revelation cannot be verified.
