— because truth has consequences —

Eternity's largest battle is not between good and evil, but between truth and lies!

Lie #11: There is no God.

Here is a quote.

"Let me put it in an entirely different way. If I take the tools, the pre-suppositions that are adequately explained in one worldview and use them in another, am I being scholastically honest? If I in the course of my functional living use one set of pre-suppositions but tell everyone about a different worldview that cannot explain and support them am I being real and true? If I teach in the classroom a worldview that swipes the real tools of another worldview and do not tell you where they came from did I really educate you, or did I indoctrinate you?

"Some of the worldviews we briefly examined were incomplete, or could not account for, or explain the basis for the ordinary presuppositions by which we operate on a daily basis. All of the pre-suppositions I gave you and more are accounted for in a Creation worldview. They not only make sense but find their fullest use in the Biblical or Judeo-Christian worldview using Biblical creation by a Creator as stated in Genesis chapter 1 verses 1-31 and His pledge in Genesis chapter 8 verse 22 to uphold all things by His power. Let me read a brief quote to you from David R. Reid [In The Beginning, David R. Reid, http://www.growingchristians.org/dfgc/beginnin.htm, accesed July 6, 2011]:

"In spite of attacks by the unbeliever and the ridicule of the skeptics, the first verse in the Bible still stands as the most clear, concise and beautiful statement of "how it all began." And there has never been a better, or more logical or reasonable explanation of what is, than Genesis 1:1. No hypothesis, philosophy or religion has come up with a more feasible alternative. Throughout man's history various ideas have been proposed - and 'pushed.' From ancient Babylon's 'Enuma Elish' (a polytheistic creation epic, characterized by the grotesque, the mythological and the absurd), to modern science's concept of eternal matter, man has attempted to explain the nagging question of origins in ways other than the biblical account. However, when all the differing theories are 'laid on the table,' there is no opinion or option which can claim more evidence or require less faith than to believe the simple scriptural statement: 'In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.'" Genesis 1:1; Psalm 24:1; 33:6, 9; 50:10-11; 95:5; 102:25; Acts 7:25; Hebrews 1:10; Job 38:4; Colossians 1:16; et cetera.

God declared the outcome of the separate days of creation saying: (I)t was good. Gen 1:4, 10, 12, 18, 21 & 25
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. Genesis 1:31-2:3
Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever. Psalm 146:5-6
