Worldly Cosmology Conference

I just went to a conference about Biblical vs Pagan Cosmology.

It certainly explained a lot of what otherwise makes no sense. I for one could not figure out why the wicked are not just wicked, but patently stupid.

Turns out their world view is to blame. They do not believe in principles and methods that would have steered them away from the tar pit of stupidity they have fallen in.

Here are some thoughts I came up with about the conference. If you want to hear the audio recordings from the conference goto this link:

Facts + logic = truth

All facts are God’s facts.

All logic is God’s logic.

All truth is God’s truth.

The truth is always abstract. Facts are mere ineffable data points until explained with logic.

The Gospel is an abstract concept. “Come, let us reason together: though your sins be scarlet & crimson, they will be white as wool and snow.”

“Abstract” does NOT mean “egghead bullshit with no connection to the real world.”

God loved Jacob because Jacob appreciated the value of abstract concepts, or at least certain specific abstract concepts that God considered important.

God hated Esau because Esau had nothing but contempt for the value of abstracts, until it was too late, even though he sought repentance with tears.

Romans 1:22-32

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another *; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

It is a waste of time to appeal to unsaved people to live morally and spiritually.

Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

I Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
