Bible or Blight,
Christ or Confusion:
The Comprehensive Written Resolution
of Man's Intractable Problems
is Found Only in the Bible, the Word of God
A Pair of Volumes: Opus 128 and 129
Published by World Wide Web Witness Inc. September 2006
ISBN 09775556 6 6
It has seemed best to present a compilation of major topics which display the fact that the Bible not only answers the chronic irresolvable problems of secular and religiously lost man, but leaves nothing undone. In its perspective, on its premises, through its orientation, by virtue of its pronouncements and declarations, there is, as one would expect when God the Creator speaks, the creation of the answers to such problems. None fails, nothing is excluded that man needs, or that prohibits his thought or understanding.
Better yet, it becomes extraordinarily clear that the failure to find 'answers' in all the 'wisdom' and ways of scientific, philosophic and political man is for one simple reason.
It is that God being the Creator and Redeemer, the maker of mankind and the provider of the solution to freedom's misuse, has provided the resolution, and there being no other God or resolution, error crunches but in vain on its mouthfuls of foolishness, which it propounds as if it were God and not man.
Included in this ungodly turbulence is that foul and unsavoury abuse of liberty by which some men try to play God to the consciences of others by force, as seen in the Romanist Inquisition, Communism and militant Islam spectacularly over centuries, in a spectacle better never shown.
Man may want apologies from God, but it is repentance from man that God wants.
He is willing to act as teacher, saviour and Lord, which He IS; but mankind on the whole has other ideas. Without repentance from these things, and acceptance of the salvation that God in Christ has freely provided (there is simply no other- Acts 4:11-12, God or salvation), it is man who is in trouble.
It is not just from bombs, such as militant Islam likes to sport when it is offended or from expansionist modes following Hitler's earlier efforts, as in former centuries not seldom have been witnessed in their grisly deportment and distortion, that man is facing peril. It is from truth itself; and since He is personal, having man man in His own image, it is increasingly becoming a matter of becoming either a submit-to-me sort of pusher, or one pushed into distortion by such force, or one who in fact surrenders to God on His own terms. Even in more peaceable times, the basics have not varied. Even when the British Empire ruled, and could despatch force at will, the confrontation with truth was not different.
The world looked more comfortable, but the issues were no more so. Even a measure of outward conformity to God does not matter in truth. You are for Him or against Him, you receive His word or you do not, you accept the Christ for your pardon and place, or you ignore, deny, or toy with Him. But He is no toy. Unless, He declared (and as truth, it is not surprising!) that either you forsake all and follow Him, or you CANNOT be His disciple; and that if you do not believe in Him, that is ipso facto the condemnation. There is simply no other light, God or place for pardon. It is not matter of imagination, but fact, testable fact, changeless fact. We cannot, said Peter and John, speak but what we have heard and seen. Fact and imagination both have their place; but they should never be confused. Imagination divorced from fact quickly descends into lie. Even ignorance has ... limits!
What then of the proposals of men, as they were spiritually propositioning God ? They do not work, because they are wrong. The century has more power for man with which to show it. It is doing so eloquently!
These CANNOT, just as they do not work. The Biblical depiction on the contrary, provides the principial and the empirical mix to perfection as in all good science, of which this is the epitome, meeting all criteria of scientific method over time as nothing else does. Human substitutes for God's actual speech, these are presumptuous all, appealing to vanity, power, force, convenience, miasma and hope, but never to fact for they do not meet with it, never to logic, for they fail as invalid, one and all
(cf. SMR Ch. 10, pp. 1081ff., 829ff.,
Dancers, Prancers, Lancers and Answers Ch. 3, *1A, Lord of Life Ch 3;
Aviary of Idolatry; 1032-1088H; Delusive Drift ... Ch. 5,
News 44, 69, 97, 98, Tender Times for Timely Truth Ch. 8;
The Grating Grandeur ... Ch. 2; SMR pp. 925ff.).
The ONLY truth possible is that which is past all relativity in field of the absolute with the added ingredients of being the domain of the absolute GOD (not principles which merely describe), whose absolute wisdom absolutely knows what is good for slithering man, whose misuse of liberty as of love, is a testimony to the wonder of its creation. As with much that is very wonderful, whether orchids or skies or oceanic vastnesses, you CAN spoil it if it is a creation. Man is expert at this, and gaining in intrepidity to devastate the whole globe, as if Junior were given the run of the house.
It is understandable but not excusable. Given the position and post of being in the image of God, with powers of obstinate valour, limited but real powers of self-determination and of imagination to make of the former two, an explosive mixture worse than any atomic bomb, man can and does devastate conscience, taunt principles of truth, make up his own mind where he is wholly incompetent, play God with the hearts, minds and lives of others, and experience the judgment of God. He, although very patient is the process, does not for ever omit the answers apt for the simplicity of his folly, the artlessness of man's pretension to wisdom and the sheer fallacies of his wilfully misused logic, whether in religion, science, society or the individual, be it nation or person.
To all this, obviously, ONLY the Creator and Redeemer COULD have the answer. No one can TELL anyone else how or why to forgive, or rectify, or remedy. It is unbecoming and a sort of sinister extension of the mirage of autonomy, as if only hell can separate this vileness from life.
Actually, He has chosen to provide it. All things should be tested, as Paul declares in I Thessalonians 5. As we have seen over the last 127 volumes of this theological set, more especially one of Biblical Christian Apologetics, when you test the Bible in every department, ONLY victory, ONLY sufficiency, ONLY steadfast and indomitable truth results. Moreover, it is cohesive, coherent, systematically inter-related and prodigious in progression in thematic unity.
Whatever would HOPE to stand, this actually does; it stands with sovereign sufficiency and astringent realism. It has done so for nearly 3 millenia, despite the wildest, most violent assaults and attacks, by pen and sword, over that time.
In this selection, we shall be considering the testimony and nature of God, of man, of science with various examples such as physics, astronomy, geology, biology, and that ring-in, psychology, the nature of Apologetics and its method and reasons, of design, of myth, of freedom, of predestination and of duty, of responsibility and of vitality.
It is important to realise the facts. ONLY GOD could give the truth and actually God has given it, as shown both in principle logically, and in practice empirically. It covers matter, mind and spirit; and of course man. It shows the nature, purpose and presentation of God to mankind. Ignored, it leads to precisely what is happening and has been happening since before the Incarnation, during its historic time, and since it occurred. The Bible being the verified word of God is indomitable in its utterance, but God Himself is the source and is not merely indomitable, but the only Lord who is both infinite in power and wisdom, and in love. As the Bible depicts, it is love which allows liberty and liberty which beckons to damnation, but God Himself who has intervened, suffering that loss by purity undimmed, and breaking that penalty by suffering vicarious.
He has not done it for all, as a gift, or for none. He has done it for those who receive it. It is not a matter of paying for the redemption of the occupants of hell, for that is their domain; nor of limiting the scope to a select and superior few (cf. Great Execrations ... Greater Grace Chs. 7 and 9).
The principle of exclusion is clearly stated by Jesus Christ: it is this, that He, the light of truth, having come into this world, many prefer darkness. They can have it. HE for His part , would have all redeemed, but then, as so many false religionists do not know, love and force are incapable of co-existence, the latter as the ground or basis for the former . Love is free. Damnation has no cover. Life is paid for; but only to those who receive it. You can achieve rottenness for ever by doing just what some Utilities offer, when they seek a new contract: NOTHING.
However if you desire eternal life from the hand of the only One who has eternity, you need to TAKE IT. Knowing all, He has your name already; but knowledge such as this does not relieve you of responsibility, nor does your sinful heart relieve you of being a target for the love of God. He KNOWS you. However, to my mind, perhaps the most wonderful point of all, within the love of God, is this. He would LIKE to have you (Colossians 1:19ff.). You are not facing a mean-spirited God, but one who declares that HE IS LOVE. There is nothing that is not love about Him (I John 4:7). As always, there are results for garbage, but so far from having a select choice of the best, the matter is far otherwise for the love of deity (I Corinthians 1:27ff.); for it is not the 'worst' and less attractive but what is intemperate and inveterately irreconcilable, even before the profundity of the knowledge of God, that is despatched.
What is removed by its irresolvable denial from Him, it can only face judgment. Truth never resigns! Lies are barefaced confusion of reality and will. The former always wins. God has made what is to be what it is, and knows what He is doing.
Yet if you seek Him, He is seeking you; and if you draw near to God, He draws near to you. You will of course never find Him, or anyone else, where He is not! You have to seek Him where He may be found. That is in Jesus Christ, the way, the life and the truth (John 14:6), without whom entry is barred. You yourself do not leave your safe open! but do you also allow those in need who seek its contents to receive them ? There is a liberality about the love of God which is shocklingly wonderful.
It is what it is, as is He who He is. Seeking truth where lie rules is like seeking water in the desert, where there has been no rain for a millenium.
Comprehensively the word of God defies all that would defile it , by changing it or attacking it; and smiles. God laughs at the efforts to make Him a butt of man's brilliance, or a subject of man's disdain (Psalm 2 tells you about it in some detail, focussing on man's acrid but futile misuse of the Messiah, and doing so a millenium before it happened). God however has wept in Christ for the destruction the madness of man, spiritually, produces, induces and expands (Matthew 23:37ff., Luke 19:42ff.). He has done all.
It is simple; God or blight, Christ or confusion, comprehensive resolution of life's problems for the human race, or uncomprehending conclusion of life in misery, just, deserved, self-wrought, with just that dissavour of eternal contempt which it deserves.
In this compilation with additions, where a given chapter from any volume is apt for more than one category, it will be given notation as such in the Index, after the first use: except that where there is a difference in the total scope of a given chapter, with several member units, this procedure will not be followed. Thus each Chapter is intended to be either wholly or partly different from any other, whatever the multiplicity of usage. In addition, in ascertaining an approximate length for this work, endeavour has been made to avoid any double counting, so that one may have a reasonable idea of its size. Careful estimate of the size is some 5500 pages or 2.3 million words.
Note that there are many times more chapters than here presented, available through the Index system at Search and that as there evidenced, some specialist topics are treated in two, three or more volumes, in separate clusters.
