Atheists and Their Death Bed… Phil Kulis

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Culture, Hell, Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2019 by paulthepoke

When men feel that the day of their death is far off, they find it easy to adamantly maintain that there is no God. They may indulge in all kinds of sophistry in order to promote their unbelief. But its very interesting to know what some famous skeptics have said on their deathbed, just before dying.

Caesar Borgia: “While I lived, I provided for everything but death; now I must die, and am unprepared to die.”

Thomas Hobbs, political philosopher: “I say again, if I had the whole world at my disposal, I would give it to live one day. I am about to take a leap into the dark.”

Thomas Payne, the leading atheistic writer in American colonies: “Stay with me, for God’s sake; I cannot bear to be left alone, O Lord, help me! O God, what have I done to suffer so much? What will become of me hereafter? I would give worlds if I had them, that The Age of Reason had never been published. 0 Lord, help me! Christ, help me! …No, don’t leave; stay with me! Send even a child to stay with me; for I am on the edge of Hell here alone. If ever the Devil had an agent, I have been that one.”

Sir Thomas Scott, Chancellor of England: “Until this moment I thought there was neither a God nor a hell. Now I know and feel that there are both, and I am doomed to perdition by the just judgment of the Almighty.”

Voltaire, famous anti-christian atheist: “I am abandoned by God and man; I will give you half of what I am worth if you will give me six months’ life.” (He said this to Dr. Fochin, who told him it could not be done.) “Then I shall die and go to hell!” (His nurse said: “For all the money in Europe I wouldn’t want to see another unbeliever die! All night long he cried for forgiveness.”

Robert Ingersoll: “O God, if there be a God, save my soul, if I have a soul!” (Some say it was this way: “Oh God, if there be a God, save my soul if I have a soul, from hell, if there be a hell!”

David Hume, atheist philosopher famous for his philosophy of empiricism and skepticism of religion, he cried loud on his death bed, “I am in flames!” It is said his “desperation was a horrible scene”.

Napoleon Bonaparte, the French emperor, and who, like Adolf Hitler, brought death to millions to satisfy his greedy, power-mad, selfish ambitions for world conquest: “I die before my time, and my body will be given back to the earth. Such is the fate of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ!”

Sir Francis Newport, the head of an English Atheist club to those gathered around his deathbed: “You need not tell me there is no God for I know there is one, and that I am in His presence! You need not tell me there is no hell. I feel myself already slipping. Wretches, cease your idle talk about there being hope for me! I know I am lost forever! Oh, that fire! Oh, the insufferable pangs of hell! …Oh, that I could lie for a thousand years upon the fire that is never quenched, to purchase the favor of God and be united to Him again. But it is a fruitless wish. Millions and millions of years will bring me no nearer the end of my torments than one poor hour. Oh, eternity, eternity forever and forever!, Oh, the insufferable pangs of Hell!”

Charles IX was the French king who urged on by his mother, gave the order for the massacre of the French Huguenots, in which 15,000 souls were slaughtered in Paris alone and 100,000 in other sections of France, for no other reason than that they loved Christ. The guilty king suffered miserably for years after that event. He finally died, bathed in blood bursting from his veins. To his physicians he said in his last hours: “Asleep or awake, I see the mangled forms of the Huguenots passing before me. They drop with blood. They point at their open wounds. Oh! That I had spared at least the little infants at the bosom! What blood! I know not where I am. How will all this end? What shall I do? I am lost forever! I know it. Oh, I have done wrong.”

David Strauss, leading representative of German rationalism, after spending a lifetime erasing belief in God from the minds of others: “My philosophy leaves me utterly forlorn! I feel like one caught in the merciless jaws of an automatic machine, not knowing at what time one of its great hammers may crush me!”

In a Newsweek interview with Svetlana Stalin, the daughter of Josef Stalin, she told of her father’s death: “My father died a difficult and terrible death. God grants an easy death only to the just. At what seemed the very last moment he suddenly opened his eyes and cast a glance over everyone in the room. It was a terrible glance, insane or perhaps angry. His left hand was raised, as though he were pointing to something above and bringing down a curse on us all. The gesture was full of menace. The next moment he was dead.”

Anton LeVey, author of the Satanic Bible and high priest of the religion dedicated to the worship of Satan. One of his famous quotes is, “There is a beast in man that needs to be exercised, not exorcised.” His dying words were, “Oh my, oh my, what have I done, there is something very wrong…there is something very wrong….”

It does not have to be…

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…

Straight Talk, Creation v. Random Chance… Rodna Epley

Posted in Creation, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 31, 2019 by paulthepoke

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Francis Crick (Scientist, Biologist, Physiologist and outspoken Atheist (1916-2004) who is credited with co-discovering, along with James Watson, the double-helix structure of the DNA strand, made the following statement.

“Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved.”

Really? A Darwinistic Evolutionist telling the science community that they must constantly remind themselves that the things they see are not created but have evolved. So why do scientists purposefully go against what common sense tells us is true about life? Everything that has life in it reveals that only a Designer could make such complex mechanical systems.

Reminds me of what Paul the Apostle once said a couple thousand years ago…

Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

And what the said Apostle John about Jesus…

John 1:3-4 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

How about atheistic scientists stop reminding themselves to continually hold a presuppositional view that is philosophical in nature and stubbornly wants to deny God. The evidence continually reveals a Designer in literally everything living that is studied under a microscope or in a lab!

Who can watch this video and still believe there’s no Designer behind life? Randomness didn’t create the complexities of life. Randomness could create nothing but chaos.

Atheists Have Lost Their Mind… -Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , on January 24, 2019 by paulthepoke

Atheists constantly demand proof for the existence of God. They insist you deliver God in a box before them so God can beg them to believe. Here’s the problem with “proving” the non-material.

Atheists claim to have a mind but can’t produce evidence of one.

They may say, “I think, therefore I am.”

But that doesn’t prove their mind exists because they can’t prove the existence of a thought. They can’t produce information without a method of transmission for information, yet the method of transmission is not the information itself.

They will say, “I spoke” or “I wrote” or “I acted”.

But those are not mind or thoughts themselves. Those are sounds, writing or action which is the method of transmission of the information that is mind. Those are the evidences that a mind created those things.

They can’t point to a place within or function of the brain and say “that is the mind.” They can’t comprehend the non-material so according to their own beliefs their mind which is non-material doesn’t exist. The mind is not a product of the brain, the mind operates through the brain. “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

God is known by the words spoken and written, and the actions which are the magnificent Creation and His interaction with it.

Atheist Envy… Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , on January 16, 2019 by paulthepoke

With atheists, it’s never about wanting to understand God. It’s about wanting to be like God.

Proverbs 14:30 A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.

Envy is ugly. Envy says, “I want what you have. But because I can never have what you have, I will destroy you and your ability to have it.” It’s not enough for atheists to realize they’re not God. They have to try to tear down those who believe in God.

Envy is behind the oldest lie in the book; “You won’t really die,” and “you shall be like God”. You’re wrong on both counts. Someday you will die, and no, you won’t be like God because you are powerless.

Understand this atheists. You who can’t comprehend the microcosm, the macrocosm, eternity, consciousness or Life. You don’t have a big enough brain to understand who or what God is.

You want God brought down to fit inside your tiny little brain because you lack the ability to expand your mind.

If God could be defined and fully comprehended by mere human beings then He wouldn’t be God.

Romans 1:28-32 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

The Religion of Scientism…Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2017 by paulthepoke

John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There are lots of things I don’t understand about the cosmos. But in all my years of reading what “scientists” say about the cosmos, it hasn’t instilled confidence in Scientism. On the contrary, the high priests of scientism mathmagically conjure up dark matter and dark energy. They claim it makes up 96% of the universe. Scientism has yet to say what or where it is. Especially now they’re finding out that dark matter doesn’t exist. Their God denying belief system appears more and more absurd.

Scientism attributes randomness to the cause of life. Yet, scientism can’t explain how unconscious, inanimate matter becomes self-aware, aware of other matter, and aware of a supposed goal and purpose beyond matter (that is, self-improvement for its own sake). Neither can scientism explain irreducible complexity. This doesn’t instill confidence in scientism.

When the high priests of scientism have continually changed their estimate of the age of the universe by exponential factors to shoehorn their belief system, it doesn’t instill confidence in their belief system of scientism.

The_Scientific_Universe

Meanwhile atheists rail against those who believe in God and say they “reject science”. No, believers don’t “reject science”. Science is a method of investigation, not a belief system. Those who believe in God reject scientism which poses as scientific. Scientism summarily rejects anything whatsoever to do with the non-material, which is just as real as the material. It is the atheistic scientism types who are the ones rejecting reality.

The atheists accuse those who believe in God as believing in the “God of the gaps”. The areas of knowledge and understanding do not explain away God.  Scientism thinks God only exists beyond the areas “conquered” by scientism in the minds of believers who are presumed to lack scientific understanding. They believe as science advances scientism will eliminate God.

But that is the furthest thing from the truth. The truth is the explanation of all things confirms God. Their profession of the “God of the gaps” beyond the frontier of understanding actually proves God.

The atheistic advocates of scientism don’t have the answers. They’re just angry with a God they say doesn’t exists. They’re desperately trying to prove wrong the inevitability of their choice for eternity.

Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Trend Update: Bible Confirms Archaeology, August 2017

The Bible, 66 Books, 40 Authors…

August 8, 2017: This is a trend that has occurred in the last week or so. Archaeology digs around the Promised Land continue to unearth a wealth of information. The conclusion, the Bible is an accurate source of historical information.

Here’s to all the critics who say the Bible is just a little book of stories, a work of fiction. It has been a rough week for secular scholars, archaeologists, scientists, and atheists. Below are links to a list of recent articles noted in the news.

Trend Update: DNA Links Canaanites & Lebanese, August 2017

Posted in Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2017 by paulthepoke

Deuteronomy 20:16-17 But in the cities of these peoples that the LORD your God is giving you for an inheritance, you shall save alive nothing that breathes, but you shall devote them to complete destruction, the Hittites and the Amorites, the Canaanites and the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, as the LORD your God has commanded…

The cultural and scientific experts and atheists have a field day with these verses. “God is a mean old vicious ogre who is committed to genocide. What kind of God is He? I don’t want anything to do with this kind of God.” And on and on and on…

The problem with God is He has the audacity to tell the human race that He is in charge. Culture and law are on His terms, not humanity’s. There is one way to do things, His way. God is authority. God will say “NO!” And God will define the consequences and execute accordingly. The peoples above were not interested in God’s law or worshipping the Hebrew God.

Exodus 20:3 You shall have no other gods before Me.

Proverbs 10:16 The wages of the righteous is life, the income of the wicked, punishment.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Who are we kidding? To this day, those who do not believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob could care less.

 

The Canaanite genome was sequenced from five buried bodies near the town of Sidon, Lebanon. This is the same ancient Sidon from the Bible. Canaan also happens to be the father of Sidon.

Genesis 10:15 Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn and Heth…

Sidon is located on the middle coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

Genesis 10:19a And the territory of the Canaanites extended from Sidon in the direction of Gerar as far as Gaza…

 

Per the American Journal of Human Genetics, modern day Lebanese share 93% of their DNA with the ancient Canaanites. The 5 bodies were estimated to be buried approximately 3,700 years ago. If the dating of these 5 bodies is correct, this would place the Israelites in captivity in Egypt. The DNA was compared to 99 modern day Lebanese citizens. The timeline fits.

In a stunning turn of events, Scientists were wrong in their assumptions and expectations in comparisons of the two groups!

The following is an excerpt from National Geographic: While the researchers were surprised at the level of genetic continuity between ancient Canaanites and modern Lebanese after some 4,000 years of war, migration, and conquest in the area, they caution against drawing too many conclusions on ancient history based solely on genetic data. 

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/07/canaanite-bible-ancient-dna-lebanon-genetics-archaeology/

http://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-canaanite-lebanese-genetics-20170727-story.html

With the DNA findings, scientific/cultural experts and atheists were quick to point out, “These disproves the Bible! The Canaanites were wiped out in the Bible. And they are still here in modern day Lebanon.”

A couple problems here… One, these “experts” have not read the Bible. Two, ancient Israel was disobedient to God’s command in Deuteronomy 20:16-17. Scripture bears witness to Israel’s disobedience to cleanse the land. Israel used the Canaanites as slave labor. After 400 years of bondage in Egypt, it was time for another group of people to work for Israel.

Joshua 17:12-13 Yet the people of Manasseh could not take possession of those cities, but the Canaanites persisted in dwelling in that land. Now when the people of Israel grew strong, they put the Canaanites to forced labor, but did not utterly drive them out.

Judges 1:27-28 restates the above passages from Joshua.

The Canaanites of the Bible were real people. And they are significant genetic relatives to modern day citizens near Sidon, Lebanon.
