A Slippery Slope Indeed

I read three interesting, and seemingly, unrelated stories (so far) this week.

One was Al Mohler’s take on the Newsweek assertion that Bible is (apparently) irrelevant to and at the same time, not against the homosexual marriage argument. I must confess I have not read Newsweek in some time, but I’ll take Dr. Mohler’s word for it.

If you’ve not read it you can find his article here

The basic premise of the Newsweek article seems to be that the Bible is old, outdated and we are much smarter than the people in the Bible. So smart and sophisticated we do not need a “Word from the Lord.”

The second story was about a push from the American Humanist Association which asks, “Why believe in a god?” It calls folks to be “good for goodness’ sake.” So, if we head down this slope, we see not only have we become so smart, we have now developed our own innate, rational, and immutable sense of goodness.

You can read more about that ad campaign here – http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,450445,00.html

The truth is we cannot be good without God, because without God there is no goodness.

For those who outright reject God’s Word, neither goodness nor morality has any basis whatsoever. The greatest evidence of that is found in the evolution debate. Now, Pres. Bush has said that you can mix the Bible and evolution.

This is not a new argument, and it makes no more sense now than it did when first posited. Either the Bible is true or it is not. Either God is, and does what the Bible says He is and does, or not. But, it can’t be both ways. When God’s word is watered down to a point of human rationale and universal agreement it ceases to be God’s word.

A slippery slope indeed.
