Evil is good? Good is evil? (11/24/2013)
From: David Foss

Galesville, Wis.

What is an uninformed religious type? A person who has Biblical knowledge, but lacks all other knowledge? Is a person called uninformed because he or she knows nothing about unscriptural doctrine?

Is it true that the worldís dictionaries donít have the correct meaning of words in them? The meanings in these dictionaries are just what a few individuals think these words mean?

Is a medical dictionary going to give the meaning of stool as such: a simple, armless, backless seat; a toilet seat; stool pigeon; an artificial duck, etc.? Of course not! Is such a dictionary going to say this about the word heart: emotion (poured out his heart), compassion (she has no heart), enthusiasm (they may lose heart), middle (the heart of the city), etc.? We wonder what a medical dictionary would say about the word cult. Perhaps its meaning would be leg-of-lamb.

Why are there those who get upset at those who love God? Those who are His children? If we are saved and are being criticized, we should be rejoicing and leaping for joy. Matthew 5:10-12. Luke 6:22-23

Nearly everyone, except those who fear hell, realize that hell is not an unperceived place. The Bible does not say that believers will be sent to hell when they die. According to Godís Word, only unbelievers will be sent to hell.

Godís doctrine is not cruel. By dying on the Cross of Calvary, He has given everyone a way to escape the eternal punishment of hell. God is a loving God, but He is also a God of judgment. I Corinthians 5:10, Luke 16:22-31, Mark 9:43-48

God doesnít fail anyone; we fail Him. We are responsible for our eternal destination, not God. We can choose either heaven or hell.

We can agree that most of so-called Christendom are relying on the traditions and deception of man for their salvation, but belief in traditions and falsehood will only lead us to one place - hell.

Biblical Christians do not tremble with fear, not even in death. II Corinthians 4:16-18; 5-8 There is not a person on earth who could successfully use Godís Word to prove that God says there is not a literal hell. This is absolutely unprovable. Of course there are tons of secular books a person could use - wrongfully - to refute the Word of God. I Timothy 6:1-5 II John 9-11

Does the Bible teach that hell is a nonexistent, unimaginable, painless place? No. Luke 16:22-31 According to Scripture, hell is a very perceivable place. Mark 9:43-48, Matthew 25:30, 41

It is utterly foolish and damming for anyone to accuse God and His children of being full of stools. It is God who talks more about hell than He does about heaven. Others may use such satanic words and say that cultic and paganish doctrine is full of stool, but such gross vulgarity is not going to win any cultic or paganish member over to Jesus Christ. All is not lost; God can forgive anything, including hateful vulgarity.

If we are of that persuasion - one who believes in the infallibility of Scripture - we should continually praise the Lord for His mercy and grace.

We hope no one will reach the point in his or her life in which this person will decide never to accept Jesus Christ and His Word. We hope and pray that the comments people hear from Biblical Christians will touch them with their need of a Savior.

Ponder I Peter 3:11-17, Jude 11, I Timothy 2:3-5, II Peter 3:9
