“The BBC teased religious…… leaders by asking them if they believed in the literal truth of the great Bible stories. I would like to ask BBC chiefs and the rest of our secular establishment if they believe in the literal truth of evolution. Evolution is an unproven theory. If what its fundamentalist supporters believe is true, fishes decided to grow lungs and legs and walk up the beach. The idea is so comically daft that only one thing explains its survival—that lonely, frightened people wanted to expel God from the Universe because they found the idea that He exists profoundly uncomfortable.” – Peter Hitchens
from the feature page of the International Express (UK), on 5 January 2000:
Peter Hitchens is right “that lonely, frightened people wanted to expel God from the Universe because they found the idea that He exists profoundly uncomfortable.” And the eternal consequence of such folly is really tragic.
The news that we bring condemnation to ourselves by violating the perfect law of God is offensive. But once we sully righteousness, it is no longer righteous. We cannot clean ourselves up, or restore our own righteousness.
There is good news, though. And that, too, is equally uncomfortable. It is that God Himself has provided a Way to enter into His very presence. It is via imputation… a propitiation… a heavenly exchange… wherein our unrighteousness is taken and nailed, once and for all time to that shameful tree. And Jesus’ righteousness covers us for all time.
I realize that some here cannot understand this, and tragically, will choose to remain in that frightened, lonely place… and are bolstered by sheer numbers of companions. To those… destined for tragedy, we labor on… praying that God’s grace is received. But when crossing to eternity, knowing the same did not repent (even if our own close relations…) we will look upon hell and proclaim “hallelujah and amen!”
But there may be one that, by God’s grace, can hear and responds! And when that happens on this side of eternity, we too, exclaim “hallelujah and amen!”
Jesus still proclaims… Whosoever will… Come!
