Is Life Today Different than Life Thousands of Years Ago? It has come to my attention that there are people who make an assumption that life today is different than it was thousands of years ago. These people use this as a presupposition to reason that the Holy Bible is not valid today because it was written about life thousands of years ago. Now at first thought, this seems like a rational postulation and that life thousands of years ago was different than life is today. Let’s look into this hypothesis of life thousands of years ago and today being different and see if it is a valid starting point to argue the assertion that the Holy Bible is outdated and not applicable to life we (you and I) experience today. Well, in fact, life thousands of years ago is no different back then as it is today. Life thousands of years ago is no different than life today because people thousands of years ago wanted food, drink, to be loved, riches, jobs, freedom, encouragement, to be heard, hopes to live a long and healthy life, etc. Pressures from day to day living were prevalent thousands of years ago as it is today too. People thousands of years ago had pain and suffering as we do today and in many cases, even more pain and suffering than we do today because today we have much better medical knowledge than back then. People also thousands of years ago died like people die today. With death of a loved one thousands of years ago the grief, pain, and suffering felt back then is the same grief, pain, and suffering one feels today when a loved one dies. Thousands of years ago some people followed the one true God of creation and others did not just as today some people do and some people don’t today. Back then, their means of life, day to day pressures may have been somewhat different than today as the technology we have today they did not have however, life thousands of years ago was and is the same as today in that they had to provide a means of living for their families and encountered day to day pressures which acted upon them back then as the day to day pressures act upon us today. Thus our findings are that life today and life thousands of years ago are not different. Therefore, the teachings within the Holy Bible about life are just as valid today as it was for life thousands of years ago and will still be valid thousands of years from today because the Holy Bible is timeless with regard to living life on earth. Think about this for a moment; Atheists use books written...
At times I doubt yet Absolute Truth is always Absolute Truth Atheists often accuse me of never considering that I am wrong in my belief that Jesus Christ is God’s only begotten Son who was born a virgin, lived a sinless life, suffered and died on a cross for my (and your) sins, and then rose from death so that I too will rise from death to be with God in heaven when I accept Christ Jesus as my savior. Atheists tell me that they have the impression that I merely “assume” that I am right, and that I have, “THE TRUTH.” This leads to many atheists calling me arrogant and holding that in respect of the core elements of my belief system, that I am right, everyone else is wrong, and nothing will change my mind. These atheists in time then come to ask me, “the key question” which is: “Are you willing to admit that you might be wrong, that there is a possibility that God may not exist and that the Bible is just a book written by man and uninspired?” The atheists asking me this “key question” state that they used to be “Christian” and most often they say that they were a “fundamentalist Christian” or as they say it, “a fundy.” These atheists or “former fundy Christians” as they call themselves make the assertion that I and other true followers of Christ Jesus must never doubt because if we do, we would become as they are a “former fundy” because as they say, “Doubt is seen as the enemy and so a thick wall of delusions is built in their minds based on unsupported “facts” (lots and lots and lots of them), half-truths, and the like in order to defend the position.” They also state that we true followers of Christ Jesus must never question, “THE TRUTH” because if we ever “sit down and consider the things atheists discuss” we would become a “former fundy.” These atheists are incorrect in that once absolute truth is found that it cannot be questioned but because it is ‘absolute truth’ each time you honestly seek to discover absolute truth, you come back to the same ‘absolute truth’ because it is the ‘absolute truth.’ You see, absolute truth does not ever change over time into something different. Absolute truth is always and has always been and will always be absolute truth the same as it was, is, and will always be. Absolute truth is absolute truth for everyone. Absolute truth is always absolute truth for everyone. In fact, these “former fundy” atheists many of whom state that they were educated in private Christian schools don’t seem to realize that as a follower of Christ Jesus, we are instructed within the...
