God Said Man Said

Can You Answer Three Questions?

Some have e-mailed bitter messages to us brimming with condescending rhetoric accusing GodSaidManSaid of narrow-minded ignorance. I must note here that what they accuse us of is often the case and is in reality true. If one is walking in the truth, he must of necessity be narrow-minded. If 2+2=4, then it is flatly false to state that 2+3=4 or 2+1=4. Truth is one-singular-and if compromised, it is no longer truth. Truth knows no opinion. So then, one who walks in truth must by definition be narrow-minded.

Can You Answer Three Questions?

Article#: 719

GOD SAID, by the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ in John, Chapter 8, Verse 32:

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

And then he said, in I Thessalonians, Chapter 5, Verse 21:

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

MAN SAID: What is truth? Man said that truth is relevant to the individual and has no certain position. Academia asks questions such as "if a tree falls in the forest and no one is present to witness it...does it make a sound?"

Now THE RECORD. Some have e-mailed bitter messages to us brimming with condescending rhetoric accusing GodSaidManSaid of narrow-minded ignorance. I must note here that what they accuse us of is often the case and is in reality true. If one is walking in the truth, he must of necessity be narrow-minded. If 2+2=4, then it is flatly false to state that 2+3=4 or 2+1=4. Truth is one-singular-and if compromised, it is no longer truth. Truth knows no opinion. So then, one who walks in truth must by definition be narrow-minded. Jesus said in Matthew, Chapter 7, Verse 14:

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

One recent web site visitor sent us a laundry list of accusations and challenges. One accusation, for example, challenged the Biblical position of an Earth just over 6,000 years old. His claim and implication was that the age of the earth was easily traceable far beyond 6,000 years. Most letters of this ilk accuse with broad strokes and seldom point to specific problems for which they can produce proof of Biblical error. It reminds me of a statement made by the Apostle Paul when he was being accused by the Jews. Acts, Chapter 24, Verse 13:

Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.

I asked the web visitor (that I am referring to in this feature) three basic questions. I explained that once he answered the three questions, we would go on to address all of his arguments.

Much of what is classified as truth and much of what is classified as common knowledge are simply not true. It is much more common for man to walk in lies than truth. It's a simple matter of kinship. In the Garden of Eden, our great. grandmother Eve believed that God's truth was a lie and Adam followed her lead. That very day the light of the spirit of life went dark in them. Consequently, all their offspring were born in spiritual darkness. The Bible says that unregenerated man, even though he is alive in the flesh, is in fact dead in trespasses and sins (Ephesians 2:1).

Most who challenge assume that the Bible is wrong, not because they have proof to the contrary, but because they have been exposed to a cacophony of (supposed) expert voices, speaking to the contrary. Invariably, the challengers are incorrect.

The three questions posed to the web visitor were as follows:

  1. What is truth?
  2. What is proof?
  3. Prove that Earth is older than 6,000 years of age.

The vast majority of those who challenge this web site can't answer the above questions. If I can't define truth or proof, then how would I know it if I were exposed to it? Until these questions are solidly answered, one will be bounced to and fro by the accumulated weight of "expert" voices.

The purpose of this web site is to, as said in scriptures, convince the gainsayers. The purpose of this site is to build faith in the hearts of the saints. The purpose of this site is to win many souls to Jesus Christ. The purpose of GodSaidManSaid is to equip the saints with powerful soul-winning information and build their confidence in the inerrency of the word of God. We will contend for the faith.

So then to the accusers, let us start the debate by answering three simple questions. Those who cannot prove the truth of their positions should vacate them. By the way, the three questions above are surely answered on this web site.

Carnal men can't know the truth because of their inherited blindness. It's time to have blind eyes opened. It's time to be born again. It's time to get a new father, a new name, and a new beginning. Find the truth-find proof-click on to "Further With Jesus" on this web site.

Once truth and proof are given dominance, the beauty of clarity of mind and purpose blooms.

GOD SAID, by the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ in John, Chapter 8, Verse 32:

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

And then he said in I Thessalonians, Chapter 5, Verse 21:

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

MAN SAID: What is truth? Man said that truth is relevant to the individual and has no certain position. Academia asks questions such as "if a tree falls in the forest and no one is present to witness it...does it make a sound?"

Now you have THE RECORD.
