Spiritual Lessons From the Headlines -theoyl.com

January 15, 2016

My blogging friend J over at The Oil For Your Lamp has an excellent post up entitled “SPIRITUAL LESSONS FROM THE HEADLINES: Reason Behind Bill Maher’s Fear of Cruz Very Revealing.”

The excerpt here will hopefully whet your appetite and encourage you to read it all!

I saw this story today, and when I read it, I found that I better understand some of the the more troublesome aspects of the Old testament.  Bill Maher is famous for attacking God’s actions in the Old Testament.  He called God a ‘Psychotic Mass Murderer.’  Now, to be totally honest, I have never found a satisfactory response to the sort of attacks that Maher levels against God.  I reject them, but I have never been able to find a way to explain why they are wrong — until now.  After reading this story, not only do I have a satisfactory answer, I have that answer in the very person of the person making the attack — Bill Maher!

Bill Maher Explains in Blunt Terms Why He Finds Ted Cruz ‘Scarier Than Trump’

Before I explain the answer I found in Bill Maher’s latest outbursts, let me draw your attention to two particular things Maher said.  First, why does Maher fear Cruz more than Trump?

My comment there:

Wow!  Wonderful, wonderful post!
I didn’t watch the video (can’t stand Bill Maher!) but I do recall a Fox News reporter being released from his Islamic terrorist captors years ago – Steve Centani – who did exactly what Maher suggests and uttered those words in favor of the false and evil “god” of Islam.  The man sold his soul for his physical life, but if he never repents at the cross of Jesus Christ in this lifetime, then he will lose eternal life with God.

The words of Jesus in Matthew come to mind:

Mat 16:26

“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mar 8:36

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

I’m participating in Bible Study Fellowship this year and we are in the book of Revelation.  We learn that the unrepentant would rather have rocks fall on them and crush them to death rather than repenting of their sin to be saved!  The resistance towards salvation for their souls becomes stronger and stronger when they refuse to admit their sins, confess and repent at the foot of the cross of Christ, and ask for forgiveness.

It is interesting to note that the term salvation in Greek means:

“victory, wholeness, well being, and deliverance!”

Therefore, people like Maher reject the very provision that would give him all of these gifts from God!  Instead, he urges others to bow to a false god in order to lose their souls!  So sad, ignorant, dangerous, stupid, childish, demonic, dumb, disrespectful and hateful!  Leading people to hell via the public forum that Maher has is truly disturbing.

In our study on Revelation 8 this past week, one question in our homework asked what we learned from the lecture.  This is what I wrote:

“Our (my) choice in this life on earth is to either be deceived by the cunning counterfeiter Satan, or guided in the Truth by our Shepherd King – Jesus Christ!”

I love 2 Corinthians 4!  The entirety of the chapter speaks to this issue about Maher, especially these verses:

2Co 4:3

But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,

2Co 4:4

whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
