America Exists Because of the Bible

1.8 billion people around the world revere the Bible as the word of God. Despite centuries of non-believers who have attempted to find fault with its teachings--casting doubt and suspicion on Christianity overall--the Bible has remained the best selling book of all time.

Yet most academics dismiss the importance of the Bible in the foundation of modern moral and philosophical thought. According to author Robert J. Hutchinson, critics are distracted by alleged historical inaccuracies, scientific contradictions, or supposed textual variants--and they miss the larger significance. In his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide(TM) to the Bible, Hutchinson explains the mistake that so many atheists and academics make in ignoring the Bible's unique ideas about science, law, and universal human rights, ideas that permeate our culture.

In this latest installment of the New York Times bestselling series, The Politically Incorrect Guide(TM) to the Bible refutes critics' attempts to diminish the holy book's historical and philosophical significance. Hutchinson uses evidence straight from biblical passages to show how its themes and ideas are essential to our daily lives.

"The ideas contained in the Bible led to many of the things we cherish most in Western civilization, including the recognition of human rights, freedom of religion, limited government, even science," reveals Hutchinson. The Politically Incorrect Guide(TM) to the Bible busts the myths promoted throughout history by atheists and liberals.

MYTH #1: The Bible stifles scientific progress

Biblical religion was not the enemy of science, but rather the intellectual matrix that made science possible in the first place. Without the key insights celebrated in the Bible, which spread throughout Europe, science would have never developed.

MYTH #2: Religion is a threat to liberal democracy and political freedom

Secular intellectuals take full credit for the concept of limited government, while in fact the origins of liberty and a belief in limited government lie in the values and ideas found in the Bible.

MYTH #3: Modern morality does not come from the Bible

Atheists like Richard Dawkins are largely ignorant of the influence of biblical law on the development of both Western morality generally and the law specifically. Biblical commandments contain concepts of justice, mercy, concern for the poor, and equality before the law that were unprecedented in their time.

MYTH #4: Slavery was virtually mandated in the Bible

Slavery was first officially banned in Christian Europe, and almost all abolitionists who actually risked life and limb to end slavery were devout Christians.

Why are people gay?

If homosexuality is a sin (i.e. an intentional, moral deviation from God's ways), why do people become gay? Many "gay" people claim that they did not choose to become gay. However, there are plenty that do acknowledge that they did choose to be gay.

There are several reasons:
Confusion. This is the fastest growing reason for becoming gay, due mostly to societal influence and the homosexual agenda. The truth us, EVERYONE has homosexual thoughts, however, NOBODY is born thinking these thoughts. Indeed, most of us experience it pretty early in life. Now, there may be just as few "straight" people who will admit that they've had homosexual thoughts before as there are "gay" people who admit that they chose to be gay. However, it is what it is. You can either conclude that because of this, ALL people are born gay. Or you can conclude that NOBODY is born gay. Either way, the confusion factor comes into play when young people have these thoughts and immediately tell themselves: "Gasp! I'm gay!" and begin to affirm that as their identity.

Most people, when they think of perverted things, such as having sex with a family member, or having sex with an animal, or having sex with a small child, these thoughts are repulsive, vile and disgusting. Yet, for some reason, in a few people these thoughts are not rejected, they are focused upon and meditated upon, becoming an obsession until the thoughts are manifested out in the form of behavior.

The same thing occurs with the perversion of homosexuality. For most people, they have been instructed by their parents that all sexual sin, including homosexual sin, is immoral, and therefor should be avoided altogether. Thus, when these homosexual thoughts come, they are quickly rejected. However, that is occurring less and less these days, because people, not having a solid foundation with their parents (specifically their fathers, and especially their Heavenly Father), are simultaneously being taught that "It's natural, it's OK..." and so instead of rejecting these perversions, they embrace them. For many, their decision to bond their homosexual thoughts to their identity is then (often times) rewarded (via extra attention they'll receive when they "come out") and thus, psychologically, they have "learned" that being "gay" is good, it works for them.

Abuse. I believe that the number one reason for homosexuality stems from sexual abuse. In boys, if they are abused as children, (as many, many studies have shown) they are likely to abuse others in the same way. This patten of perverted dysfunction bleeds out into other areas of life such as intimate relationships. Many people don't have a positive model for successful relationships, and therefore only KNOW HOW to relate to others in a dysfunctional manner.

Addiction. As far as I know, this is a less researched reason, but I mention it more so because of my personal experience. Every "gay" person I've ever known has been addicted to both drugs and alcohol. I believe this is the catalyst that numbs their inhibitions to the point where they can ignore their consciences' and reasonings. The decision to transition from 'homosexual thoughts' into 'homosexual behavior' causes tremendous inner turmoil. By numbing the senses with drugs and alcohol, the perversions are often manifested and, sobriety becomes a bitter, painful experience.

Is there a cure for gayness?
Yes, a very simple one. Keep your pants on.

Is homosexuality a sin?

God has already answered that question Himself:

Leviticus 18:22

"Do not practice homosexuality; it is a detestable sin.

Leviticus 20:13
"The penalty for homosexual acts is death to both parties. They have committed a detestable act and are guilty of a capital offense.

Romans 1:26-27
"That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men and, as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty they so richly deserved.

1 Corinthians 6:9
"Don't you know that those who do wrong will have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, who are idol worshipers, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,

1 Timothy 1:5 - 10
"The purpose of my instruction is that all the Christians there would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and sincere faith. But some teachers have missed this whole point. They have turned away from these things and spend their time arguing and talking foolishness. They want to be known as teachers of the law of Moses, but they don't know what they are talking about, even though they seem so confident. We know these laws are good when they are used as God intended. But they were not made for people who do what is right. They are for people who are disobedient and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who murder their father or mother or other people. These laws are for people who are sexually immoral, for homosexuals and slave traders, for liars and oath breakers, and for those who do anything else that contradicts the right teaching that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.

So yes, homosexuality, according to God and the Word that He has given to all of us, is clearly a sexual sin.

So why all the confusion?

Matthew 15:9

Mark 7:7
'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far away. Their worship is a farce, for they replace God's commands with their own man-made teachings.'

1 Timothy 4:1
"Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from what we believe; they will follow lying spirits and teachings that come from demons.

Ephesians 4:17
"With the Lord's authority let me say this: Live no longer as the ungodly do, for they are hopelessly confused."

The Church has made this world better

Wherever the Gospel is preached, it is a certain, verifiable fact that the society is improved: economically, morally, relationally, academically, socially, and of course, spiritually.

I am always perplexed when pseudo intellectuals start spouting their doctrine about "all the damage the Church has done to the world"... They cite the Crusade wars, oppression, etc. as they point their fingers at the Church. But if you were actually going to study reality, you would see that, while the Church is certainly not innocent, the Church has done a remarkable service to this world. God has used His people to BE A BLESSING, and that's just something you can't take away.

Look at these lyrics from the band "Newsboys" in the song "Wherever we go":
Wherever we go, the dumb get wise
And the crime rates drop and the markets rise
It’s a curious thing
But it’s just our thing

Bullies make nice, crooks repent
And the ozone layer shows improvement
It’s a curious thing
And it’s humbling

Wherever we’re led
All the Living Dead
Wanna leave their Zombie Minds
It’s a touching scene when they all come clean
God help us, we just love our job

Hands up
Holler back here
Let’s throw this party in gear
We brought the welcome mat
Wherever we go, that’s where the party’s at

Hands up
Holler back now
We don’t claim any know-how
We’re giving God all that
Wherever we go, that’s where the party’s at

That's just a partial listing of the lyrics. The song is amazing and I'm so thankful that the light of God's truth shines through the darkness of lies in this song.

There is no such thing as a random number.

Now, I've opened many a discussion with that statement with physicists and mathematicians, but they don't seem convinced. We just can't comprehend the non-pattern. There are surely more advanced beings in the universe that can understand random numbers, imaginary numbers and irrational numbers.

But still...there is no such thing as a random number.


My light burns out.
The stars will die eventually.
Even the Vast Universe will collapse and fade away.

But you God, are Everlasting.
And can anyone take that away from you?
