Religion Zingers                                                 

If atheist really did not care about religion and society they could not advocate
humanism; if they really had a don't-care attitude, they would remain silent; and if
they did not feel some guilt, they would not be so evangelical and aggressive.  
Just the obvious need to join communities of atheism demonstrates a reaction to
something of value, and in doing so generates their own value system that is a
religion.  The chip on their shoulder, like the gap in their soul and the lack of
religious dimensions of personality, demands that their individual unregenerate
character seek the justification of approval of a society while not so religious as
they claim, does by and large favor moderation, respecting a God, Bible, and
Christ about which they know little.  Also an American democratic society against
intolerance, whether that be on the religious or anti-religious side.  The real
religion of America is TOLERATION; and while evangelical Christians would have
to agree on their evils of religious history, at the same time the evangelicals
recognize something inherently wrong in their criticisms, zingers if you would,
toward any appearance of faith and religion.  To have you make positive
statements of faith in and on their communities reminds one of the sensitivity of
Muslims to the Prophet Mohammed.  If you evangelize in the slightest you are
proselyting, while if they advocate the influence and spread of the religion of
atheism they are only defending their rights to exist.  Like they demand a self-
group determination of their own religion, they also demand, like Muslims, a
careful choice of certain words; and the choice of those words themselves with
the values of meanings behind them, determine to the rest of society their
religion.  They abound in hasty generalizations such as the zingers which place
Islam and Christianity in the same category of religions to be fought against.  If it
were not for their objection to all religion, another hasty generalization, they
would make good Buddhist that accepts all religions and gods.  Like Henry Steele
Commager of the famous AMERICAN MIND well maintained a certain paranoia
among fundamentalists, so atheist go two ways in their thinking; namely, on one
side of their personality, it is a crusade to protect humanity from religion and
faith, while on the other hand they are busy aggressively spreading an alternate
path of salvation in creativity and education, even worldly success and a false
and superficial intellectual honesty.  They think these other religions are a bubble
that they can pop while they are blind to the venerability of their own bubble;
while never stopping to think that they are in a majority of unbelievers, a
horrifying opposite of one of the major tenets of their religion, “Thou shall not be
in the majority”.

                     Religion in the Bible {not in the Bible}

We conservative, evangelical and Bible believing Christians by and large do not
care about religion either.  Is that a shock to you?  Not if you consider that
“religion” except for a few verses in the Bible is a social concept not a Bible
concept.

1.  Acts 26:5 as the Apostle Paul in the first century of Christianity made a
defence of the Christian faith in comparison to the religion of which he was a
champion before his conversion.
“Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the
most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.”    (Acts 26:5)

2.  It was a previous religion that allowed him to persecute “the church of God”
(Galatians 1:13).
“For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion,
how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted
it...” (Galatians 1:14)

3.   James of the first church in Jerusalem had something to say about religion
that is impossible for atheist to practice because of their own religion.
“If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue,
but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.”  (James 1:26)

4.  That same first century Pastor defined “religion” for us.  See if that stacks up
against what you call religion, either your personal or of history.
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the
fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted
from the world.”  (James 1:27)

NOTE:  Perhaps it could be considered on the positive side of atheism for
humanity, that they are seeking a pure and unadulterated religion.  Well,
here it is:  (1) do good things for others even a cup of water in the name of
Christ; and (2) keep yourself unspoted in the world from all immorality,
unethical, and counter to the holiness of God.  You also see here the
objection of Bible believing Christians to much relgion in history that is not
religion according to the definition of our standard for relgion; and it would
have to be said that herein Christians and atheists share about the only
common ground possible.  Surely that horrifies you!  As a matter of fact, if
it were possible the criticism of world regions including that of Christianity
goes far beyond what you teach, in that long on the www.
biblecombibleman.com of SunGrist_Bible, the Falling Away doctrine of
churches and denominations has been preached to the extent of over 8  
years ago publishing and giving away free “What Churches don't want you
to hear”, that is, that churches and denominations especially in America
are leaders in the Falling Away because they have more to fall away from.  
{It is available free in PDF right now as 8 years ago, simply download and
save www.biblecombibleman.com/wcdwyth.pdf .}  Perhaps we should start
a new Google Plus community called Atheist and Believers United
community against the Falling Away.  Of course, that would perhaps not
work since you atheist like Senator Graham on politics are “agin”
everything positive and for action that is brought up.  That is another tenet
of your religion, and at some point in the Zingers a list should be made of
the rules and commandments of the Religion of Atheism.  It can be easily
be derived from the rules and guidelines from many of their Atheist
communities on Google Plus.  You can find it listed on the “Atheist Zinger”
page of www.biblecombibleman.com, or link to www.biblecombibleman.

      Christian Apologetics and Christian Evidences

Bare min, hopefully you sceptics, atheists, and doubters are beginning to say
something of the vast field of Classical Christian Apologetics and Evidences.  
Granted that there are many places to start and many approaches to make on
the proofs or evidences for faith in God, Christ, and the Bible; however the
presence of this Preacher/Technologist is to start with the Bible.  Here is a book
in the world, like a PCB found in the jungle by a native that demands a Designer,
a book claiming to be the Word and words from God the Creator Himself, a claim
on the lives of all humans created in the image of God, according to that book,
must accept or reject.  Now once you have made the positive choice in favor of
the proofs for the Bible as Word of God versus the proofs against, then the way
is clear for “he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a
rewarder of those that diligently seek Him”.  {You should be warned that along
with the comradeship of humanity comes a bias against God, sort f a built-in
rebellion, called sin.  If you are a son of Adam and Eve, you have inherited this
bias, a bias of both evolution in science and religion of which Millikan speaks in
his book on the subject.  Not matter how objective those of science and relgion
strive to be, there is a difference between absolute and ultimate truth.  
Unfortunately in spite of the superficial claims of the atheist to be objective,
intellectual, and scientific, like Irwin Linton, a Supreme court lawyer wrote in his
book, A LAWYER EXAMINES THE BIBLE, “I never met a person who expressed
doubts about Christ and the Bible, who had honestly read it for himself.  Yes, that
is about unscientific as you can get.}
 Of course after personal experience with the Bible, it proves itself to be from
the God our Creator who wrote it in the first place over thousands of years of
human civilizations and history and through 40 carefully chosen Prophets and
Apostles, after this personal experience, sort of like pragmatism in philosophy
and sort of like the scientific method of experimentation, then you are free with a
good foundation to accept both the God of that Bible and the Christ Who this
God the Father sent over two thousand years ago for your own salvation.  In
short the Bible is a good starting and ending place as a standard for all we
believe and practice.  How can we compare anything man has said or is saying
with the wisdom of God.  The wisdom of the ages even if not recognized as from
God and as such A STANDARD AND THE STANDARD.  You see everything you
as an atheist says we stack up against that standard, and most of the time
except on the evils of religion and organization, you fall very, very short of that
standard.

                    The Bible Standard on Conscience

Therefore pardon the Bible standard on the inherent personal and collective
social conscience in all humanity, the same humanity for which they claim to be
the crusaders and champions--{surely their religion includes the value system of
a human conscience}--
a.  Romans 1:19,20.
“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God
hath showed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation
of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are
made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without
excuse...” (Romans 1:19,20)
b.  Romans 2:11-16.
“For there is no respect of persons with God.  For as many as have sinned
without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in
the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just
before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.  For when the
Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the
law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which show the
work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing
witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one
another;)  In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus
Christ according to my gospel.”
