Fools Will Waste Your Time.
How Much Do You Have To Waste?
"For I know your manifold transgressions, and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right. Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." Amos 5:12-13
The Godless poke fun at faith because they are without it. They are the blind man mocking color.
They cannot understand the spiritual realm, because, like dead men, they cannot interact with the living. Their blindness makes them slaves of their own lusts and passions. There is no hope of escape except by the very faith they reject. They think by their much speaking to prevail over the Sovereign God of Creation. They proceed like a blind man in heavy traffic. There is no fear of God before their blinded eyes. There is a saying that goes, “Don’t argue with idiots. They’ll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” The Word of God says, “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.” In other words, "argue with a fool and you become a fool".
Fools bray like a donkeys because they are wise in their own conceit. Let them alone. Don’t dignify their questions and statements with anything but Truth. God will see to them, and when He does, they’ll rue the day of their birth. Some think by mocking faith they are somehow superior. Others seek a sign. A lot of man’s religions are just organized cultism and greed, but “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this; To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep [yourself] unspotted from the world.” The only way you can stay unspotted is by the Holy Spirit’s power and guidance which you will not have unless you “pray without ceasing.” Satan’s goal is not to defeat God for he cannot, but to destroy the object of His love. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” Let the fools prate. Their end is near. Give the Gospel to those who will receive it and leave the rest to God. Our job is not to save sinners, but to preach the Gospel. “Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” “God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
If when you think that all seems lost,
Take time to stop and count the cost,
Our Savior paid upon the Cross,
And count, for Him, all else, but loss. ~CGP
His Love for us conquered death and gave us eternal Life. Fight a good fight. Finish your course.
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." Romans 8:1-2
