Reasons for God: No Excuse!

This is a series on apologetics dealing with the revelation that God has given to all people in creation, providence, history, experience, and their own conscience, as helps to lead them to repentance and faith in Christ but leaving them without excuse for their unbelief. This series is in many ways a Scriptural refutation of natural theology and the Arminian based view of classical apologetics that places high value in the Theistic arguments as reasons to believe. They are not! It is only the faithful preaching of the Gospel that can bring a person out of their bondage to sin, idolatry, and false religion. In Romans 1:18-21 Paul says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all godliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse; because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened…” Theistic arguments have no power to bring a person to faith in Christ expect when they are used in conjunction with the faithful preaching of Christ and the Gospel. Apologists and theologians are stupid and ungodly to think that Theistic arguments have any power or influence to bring a sinner to saving faith in Jesus Christ and the truth of the Gospel. For there are billions of people in the world who believe in a false god in bondage to some cult, false religion, or deviant form of Christianity. The problem with them is not that they don’t have enough arguments for God’s existence, they already believe in God. The problem is that they believe in a false god, a false Gospel, a false Christ. But studying the traditional Theistic arguments and many others are of great value to believers for growing in the knowledge of God and in learning how to defend the Gospel from Scripture with a full armory of divine truth. This series is in the making and when finished would consist of a book of approximately 400-500 pages.
