Nature’s Witnesses, Part 2 – “Natural Beauty”

To read Part 1, click here…January 25th (Atheism Exposed, Part 1: Nature’s Four Witnesses)

.

.

.

.

In that wonderful book, Pilgrim’s Progress, there was a character, named “Atheist”.

And this man (as this picture depicts) was a man with bad eyesight (blinded by the god of this world)

.

And the artist of this picture was not too gentle in his portrayal of Mr. Atheist. But in a day and age in which militant atheists are forcing their hopelessly miserable ideology on us, and upon our children, it takes some restraint to keep from mocking their blindness, and folly.

.

And it must be remembered that only God can open the eyes of the blind.

.

And so, the atheist, like all the rest of us sinners, is completely at the mercy of God’s grace.

LOOSE ENDS OF ATHEISM

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PProg_54_p127_AtheistFellIntoAVeryGreatLaughter.jpg?uselang=deFor those of us who have been atheists, we understand that there is  a need to explain away the unexplainable.

.

As a young atheist, we had certain “monkey wrenches in the works”, so to speak: loose-ends which needed to be tied up, in our minds.

.

Things that didn’t quite set right with the godless tenets of atheism, and really couldn’t be explained according to this godless philosophy.

.

.

.

.

.

.

BEAUTY & POETRY OF NATURE

.

Now one of those loose ends of atheism is the, “the beauty & poetry & symmetry of nature”.

.

Yes, the beauty and poetry of nature is a big problem for the atheist. The beauty and poetry of nature just doesn’t quite harmonize with the “Big Bang”! The chaos of the pre-bang eternity-past, just doesn’t quite harmonize with this law-abiding universe which is filled with beauty and symmetry and poetry!

.

And so, many atheists try to convince themselves that beauty is just something that we have merely adapted ourselves to. In other words, there is no real beauty.

.

But over the millions of years, we just sort of adapted ourselves to nature: we just decided what was beautiful to the innately neutral things of nature.

“THROUGH FEAR OF DEATH ALL THEIR LIFETIME”

Hebrews 2:15

.

And so, this idea works, pretty much, for the atheist.

.

And let’s face it! Most atheists don’t like to think http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PProg_54_p127_AtheistFellIntoAVeryGreatLaughter.jpg?uselang=detoo deeply about such things, because such thoughts tend to make us nervous. Atheism is a very unsettling ideology, or religion, or philosophy, or whatever one may wish to call it. And thus, the average atheist is a prisoner of his own fears, to a great degree.

.

Listen… “through fear of death (the people of the world) were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” Heb. 2:15.

.

Yes, this world is held captive to the fear of death, even though few will admit it.

.

And the closer the atheist gets to the grave, the more that this hopeless philosophy begins to crush out the joy of life for the atheist.

BEAUTY UNDENIABLE!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:South-American_butterfly.jpg

.

Now, back to this idea that nature is neutral.

.

For many atheists, this so-called neutrality of nature is good enough, when one attempts to cobble-together this…uh…philosophy called atheism.

.

The atheist can justify all this beauty and poetry of nature by saying, “Oh, it’s just our adaptation to nature: our survival instincts have assigned what we believe is beautiful!”

HIDEOUS UNDENIABLE

.

But the obvious problem with that, is that this tenet of atheism so-called, “the neutrality of nature”, doesn’t explain those things in nature which are obviously hideous looking!

.

And after some time, the atheist must come to the point, that the beauty and poetry of nature is merely one of those anomalies of life which cannot be explained! It’s just unexplainable!

.

It’s one of those loose ends, that cannot be tied neatly up! They simply cannot explain it according to evolution and atheism and the so-called “big-bang”!

.

And so, this is one of those things which the most ardent defenders of this iron-citadel, known as atheism, must either defend by using vague and confusing quasi-scientific babble, or merely close our eyes, hold our breath, and hope it just goes away!

10,000 TEACHERS IN CHRIST

1st Corinthians 4:15

.

.

But the fact remains, that nature has many things beautiful, and many things, not-so-beautiful! And that’s part of the poetry of nature!

.

Therefore, nature becomes our schoolmaster, teaching us lessons about good and evil!

.

Behold the Dandelion! This little flower of the field looks so bright and so pretty. But after a short time, when the hot Sun arises, this pretty little flower dies, and turns into lifeless spindles. Yes, this too is our instructor, teaching us of the shortness and meaningless of life without God.

“All flesh is grass,

and all the goodliness thereof

is as the flower of the field:

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth…

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:

but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Isaiah 40:6-8

.

So here we see that God compares the grass to mankind, and the little wildflowers to man’s shortlived glory.

“OR SPEAK TO THE EARTH AND IT SHALL TEACH THEE”

Job 12:8

.

And so, for those who have been given a love of the truth, nature is a wonderful teacher!

.

And nature was created by God, to be appreciated on several levels: on the level of the simple beauty, but also on the level of the wisdom which nature teaches.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sandylion.jpg

Thus, nature itself is a witness of, not only God’s beauty, but also of God’s wisdom.

.

But also, nature teaches us the great lesson, that God loves good, but hates evil.

.

And so, as we look at the various aspects of nature, we can see God’s Law, written in the tiniest atom, to the greatest star!

.

But those who are living in denial of this truth, must squint our eyes, and try to rationalize these things, in order to retain this losing philosophy, called atheism.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Give me a greater appreciation for not only nature’s beauty, but also for the many lessons that can be learned from nature. But above all, give me a love and sympathy for those who walk in spiritual darkness, of this, the Devil’s world…

“CORDS OF VANITY

.

“Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:” Isaiah 5:18

.

Valley of Decision Constellation Group

 

.

 

Look at the slope of this third mountain (Babylon Mtn. on right), and notice that it goes straight down to the Dragon Constellation. This slope belongs to the constellation commonly called Pisces“. Doesn’t it almost look like the Dragon is towing this Mountain? It almost looks like the Dragon is transporting this “False Mountain” from the south… from Hell! And he has pulled it northward…next to these other two mountains. This would almost seem like a comical idea…if it weren’t for the destruction and death and woe caused by Satan for many-a-millennium. Just listen to this verse…

“Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:” Isaiah 5:18.

SATAN’S CART-ROPE

.

So God has created this constellation group to picture for us this fearful concept of Satan pulling this mountain of sin, called Babylon: and it comes from the south: the south symbolizing the lowest Hell! And Satan and his followers work hard to create this world of darkness and deceit, pulling it as by cords of vanity and sin. And this Mountain of Babylon represents Satan’s kingdom: the kingdoms of this world, over which he rules and reigns. And though Satan tries hard to keep a very low-profile, one can look in any direction and see the sin and the results of sin, which he has deluged upon this unsuspecting world (“And we know that we are of God, and the WHOLE WORLD lieth in wickedness.” 1st John 5:19).
