Not understanding

by on May 26, 2015

Two guys stopped by the whiteboard. One had come by many times, and had received tracts, science articles, and talked with us numerous times and hearing the Gospel over and over. He rejects it every time.

His friend hadn’t been by before. As he started claiming to know things from science, I asked him, “How do you know that?” He would state something else, and I would ask him, “How do you know that?” After several statements by him, and me asking him, “How do you know that?” I asked him, “Could you be wrong about every thing you know?”

He said he could, and so did his friend. They readily admitted that they could be living in “the matrix” for all they knew, and they they knew nothing for sure. They could be in a coma dreaming for all they knew. Maybe their brains were in jars and they didn’t know it.

That’s true if they base every thing they know on their own senses and reasoning. Human senses and reasoning are fallible.

So, where do you find truth? How can you know anything for sure?

God gave us His Word, and it is the truth. The Bible can be trusted 100% without doubt.

Those who refuse it do so for several reasons:

1. They are willfully ignorant.

2. They are prideful.

3. They have a moral problem when it comes to what the Bible tells them.

4. They have been taught to refuse it.

Sometimes people have a combination of all 4, but most common is pride leading to willful ignorance, and having a problem with the morals the Bible stands for.
