I Think...

The Guardian Unlimited reports:

No religion and an end to war: how thinkers see the future

Really? No religion? The Opiate of the masses gone? Just like that?

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. (Psalms 2:4 NKJV)

There is just too much here. Where do we start? First of all, what does it take to be a thinker anyway? I am; therefore, I think? (Apologies to Descartes) Do they think better, or smarter then the rest of us? Or, do they think they are better or smarter then the rest of us?

Science might be able to replace religion. Why not? There are many people who use religion to avoid having to answer to The one true God. The infamous "they" distort or ignore His Word to justify their own way. which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. (2 Peter 3:16 b NKJV)

I'll grant that "religion" is man made. God wants a relationship with us. Am I splitting hairs? Maybe? Most religions are man's attempt to reach up to God. But God has already reached down to us.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 NKJV)

These "Thinker's" don't just want us to drop religion. They want us to forget God because they don't want to believe in Him. And, they don't want anybody to remind them of Him

The fool has said in his heart,"There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. (Psalms 14:1 NKJV)

I am thinking that they should try to convince me that there is no God

"Come now, and let us reason together," Says the Lord, "...

(Isaiah 1:18 a NKJV)

And in their attempt, perhaps they will come face to face with God and drop this foolishness.

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. (Romans 12:3 NKJV)
