WORLD HAS MOVED FROM THEISM TO HUMANISM TO DATAISM

This article from a well known Financial Magazine shows us how quickly the world is moving away from belief in God and therefore a healthy fear of God.

The world has moved from theism to humanism to dataism, so says the best crypto brain from Silicon Valley and Wall Street,  James Altucher.

It all stems from the biggest shift in money since coinage was invented 1,000 years before Jesus was born…

In short, we’re moving as a civilisation from a philosophy of theism, to humanism, to data-ism.

What do I mean by that?

Take medicine as an example…

500 years ago, when you were sick, you’d pray to God to be healthier. In some societies, you might sacrifice an animal.

That’s theism.

Which eventually turned into humanism…

That’s when you would go to your doctor, tell him your symptoms — and he’d give you a diagnosis. He’d maybe tap your knee and check something, or do surgery.

Point is, you depended on humanism, a belief in your doctor and his medical training.

Now we’ve kind of evolved into data-ism with our health.

We use a Fitbit. We get bloodwork. We have robotic surgery. We can change coding in genes now to strip out deadly diseases!

In the medical industry, everything has moved from a belief in God to a belief that data will cure us.

Just look at how much you could have made buying the right pharmaceutical stocks… a pharma company named Biogen has seen its stock go up 10,000%…

I would suggest this article is just another confirmation we are in the Biblical “last days”. As I have mentioned many times, in previous posts, there are far more prophesies of Jesus Second Coming than there were of His first coming.

 

 

WORLD VIEWS THAT ARE SHAPING OUR WORLD

Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla, thinks another mass extinction is coming. And he’s dedicated himself to saving us.
Musk is correct in that there was a mass extinction in the past but it is not what Musk and most of the scientific community believes. Based on belief in  evolution, they believe 251 million years ago, the Great Permian Extinction wiped out around 96% of Earth’s species. The correct Creation/Biblical view is God caused mass extinction just 4,000 years ago with a worldwide flood. Billions of dead things (fossils) buried all around the world is the stark evidence of this event.

Jesus warned us that in the “last days”  “You should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgement and destruction of the ungodlyBut do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:2-8 
Notice the reference to the fact that “with the Lord one day is a thousand years” is directly after he says, they will deliberately overlook His creation and the flood. I believe this is a direct reference to the days of creation being a template/picture of the age of the earth at the time of the His second coming. It confirms the age given by the genealogies given in the Bible in both the O.T and N.T., thousands not billions of years.
Musk recently granted Rolling Stone an exclusive interview where he discussed his troubled childhood, his fear of never finding someone to love him… and Earth’s imminent doom. If only, someone had told him the truth about His Creator. The Father who loves Elon enough to send His Son to earth to die for him so he can be born again, born of the Spirit into a renewed eternal relationship with his Heavenly Father.
One can only surmise how it would have changed Elon’s life. His accomplishments have been impressive.
Tesla, his electric car company, and Solar City, his solar energy company, both reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and make the air cleaner to breathe.
He’s also developing the Hyperloop, a mass transportation system that shoots pods through a tube at 800 miles per hour, thus reducing traffic and travel time.
Then there’s his honeycomb of underground tunnels – outfitted with electric skates – to relieve traffic congestion.
However, it’s interesting that Musk’s biggest concern is technology. From the Rolling Stone interview:
“Climate change is the biggest threat that humanity faces this century, except for AI [artificial intelligence]. I keep telling people this. I hate to be Cassandra here, but it’s all fun and games until somebody here loses a fucking eye.”
Musk fears artificial intelligence could enslave all of humanity. Perhaps he fears a Matrix or Terminator style future.
And that’s one of the reasons behind his company SpaceX– a private space travel company: when the stuff really hits the fan, you can hop on a rocket and leave Earth.
As Musk tells Rolling Stone:
“And if we were a multi-planetary species, that would reduce the possibility of some single event, man-made or natural, taking out civilisation as we know it, as it did the dinosaurs…
Unless you’re a cockroach or a mushroom – or a sponge – you’re fucked. It’s insurance of life as we know it, and it makes the future far more inspiring if we are out there among the stars and you could move to another planet if you wanted to.”
Without God and the Good News of Jesus, Elon is right we are f____. How important it is you have a right world view based on the inerrant word of God.

MOVIE “THE ATHEIST DELUSION” – DESTROYS ATHEISM WITH ONE SCIENTIFIC QUESTION

Evangelist Ray Comfort’s “The Atheist Delusion” movie, claims that it’s able to “destroy atheism with one scientific question.” It is set to premiere at the Ark Encounter, a life-sized Noah’s Ark theme park in Kentucky.

“From the start, we were concerned that people wouldn’t take seriously a movie that ‘destroys atheism with one scientific question.’ But it does exactly that by scientifically confirming the existence of God. Having a respected, scientifically based organisation like Answers in Genesis being willing to premiere it is such an honour,” Comfort said.

Thousands have already viewed the movie within the first two days of its pre-release as a paid download, but on October 22, its official release date, it will be streamed live from the Ark.

Comfort said, “This film isn’t likely to convince the average proud and closed-minded atheist.” But hopefully, countless others who are open-minded, will be convinced by seeing the irrefutable proof for the existence of God.

The best-selling author and filmmaker, whose movies have been viewed by millions, added, “We would love for millions more to watch ‘The Atheist Delusion,’ and invite Christians to host the live-streaming event from their church or home. The world premiere will be highly evangelistic, as well as thoroughly encouraging, equipping, and inspiring to seasoned believers.”

My ebook Living Eternal Now – Empowered by the Holy Spirit will be available on Amazon as a FREE download from June 1st to 5th, 2016.

If you don’t believe God exists, the Bible is God’s Word, that God loves you and that He has provided a way for you to restore the lost relationship with Him, then you need to read my ebook “Living Eternal Now – Empowered by the Holy Spirit”.

You need to be born again by the Holy Spirit. You then know God is real and you have eternal life. The world becomes a different place, you notice the beauty of God’s creation in a new way, your priorities change. His priorities become your priority. The Holy Spirit living within your spirit (your body becomes a temple of the Holy Spirit) produces the fruit of the spirit in your life: love, joy, peace, faithfulness, goodness, gentleness, kindness, patience and self control. As the Holy Spirit enables, many of the nine gifts of the spirit will become evident in your life. Each one of these gifts are major power gifts, and they are all direct, supernatural, miraculous manifestations direct from the Holy Spirit: 1. Word of Knowledge, 2. Word of Wisdom, 3. Gift of Prophecy, 4. Gift of Faith, 5. Gift of Healing, 6. Working of Miracles, 7. Discerning of Spirits, 8. Speaking in Tongues, 9. Interpretation of Tongues.

Your life is transformed and God will use you to build His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. You will truly enter into the joy of the Lord knowing you are a child of God, loved by your heavenly Father.

HOW ENGINEERS ARE COPYING GOD’S DESIGN

Take a look at this promo video of Dr Stuart Burgess (Professor of Design Engineering at the UK’s Bristol University) speaking on the complex design evident in the universe and the absurdity of believing it could have arisen by random chance, i.e. without a designer.

It demonstrates that good science emanates from knowing this Cosmos is designed by an all powerful creator. Its complex design and laws can be explored by our minds as we are made in His image to be creative and to investigate what He has given us dominion over.

Scientists who believed in evolution thought that most of the information on DNA was evolutionary junk. The ENCODE PROJECT demonstrates that none of it is junk. It is all designed for a purpose. It’s complexity beyond our understanding. With the Encode Project, like so many others, belief in evolution resulted in poor science.

AGE OF THE EARTH

There is a great article in the latest issue of Creation magazine Vol 38 No 1 2016, entitled The Z Factor. It is about how a university geology lecturer’s last obstacle to believing a literal Genesis – “What about coal?”- was overturned in an instant.

hammer and rocks

He understood, the above picture revealed that the evolutionary millions-of-years ‘swamp forest’ story telling about coals origins cannot explain the Z-shaped and forked coal seams that are in abundance. They can only have formed through the action of rushing water.

For this Christian geology lecturer, this one picture was sufficient for him to realise Noah’s Flood was the causal factor in coal formation all over the world. “That’s it! That’s it! Noah’s Flood explains coal, the fossil bearing rocks. I believe everything now – the whole Bible. The universe is only 6,000 years old. What a wonderful day this is.”

It is important to realise that Z shaped and forked shaped coal seams are not the only features in coal deposits that defy evolution’s long age “swamp forest” storytelling. Others, include trees penetrating vertically through multiple layers of coal seams with their roots broken off, huge coal seams stacked on top of one another with a regular repeating sequence of rock layers in between, and the fact that coal seams contain much vegetation (like pine trees) that doesn’t grow in swamps!

For this geologist, evolutionary indoctrination about coal needing millions of years to form in forested swamps had been his final obstacle to believing the whole Bible. Do you believe the Bible, from its Creation account to its revelation of a new heaven and a new earth after the White Throne judgement of all mankind?  If evolution is a stumbling block for you, then can I suggest you get the video, Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels by 9 PhD scientists – available on http://www.creation.com.

 

LIVING ETERNAL NOW – AVAILABLE AS eBOOK ON AMAZON

Daily prayer as we meditate on HIS WORD develops our relationship with GOD and our ability to hear HIS voice. Jesus said my sheep hear my voice, not can or should hear my voice. They do hear HIS voice.

I first started this website (blog) in December 2012 and now have 173 posts up on the site. When I had put up post 150, God told me, it was time to reach a broader audience with HIS message that JESUS sacrificial death has provided the way back into a relationship with the Father and moved us from death to life – eternal life. The book just released on Amazon is the result.Amazon image of LENIf you have appreciated the website then may I ask you to get the message  out about the book. One of the good things about eBooks is the ability to continually update them. The last chapter in the  book is Discerning the Times (like the men of Issachar who understood the times and knew what Israel should do). This is one section of the book that I will constantly update. Another benefit of my eBook is I have been able to put links to the videos and articles that are mentioned in the book. A click and you connect to the video or article on the relevant site.

I would appreciate feedback on the book. If I can be of help, to answer any questions you have about the content as it relates to your own life, please send me an email.

Both of my eBooks are available now on Amazon at AUS$6.95 and US$4.99. My first book was Build a Kingdom Business – Empowered by the Holy Spirit.
