One of your better arguments Clown. Basically said, God allows mockers to continue in their foolishness, and even helps them along in their intellectual misadventures. Reminds me of a joke I heard once.Those who are looking for contradictions may therefore say,Seethe Bible is full of mistakes! and choose to reject it entirely as being untrustworthy. However, those who trust God have no problem believing
The godly base their confidence on two truths: 1)all Scripture is given by inspiration of God(2 Timothy 3:16); and 2) an elementary rule of Scripture is that God has deliberately included seeming contradictions in His Word to snare the proud. He has hidden things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes(Luke 10:21), purposely choosing foolish things to confound the wise (1 Corinthians 1:27).
"An sophisticated long-haired city slicker decided to take his new BMW for a ride in the country one day. He pulled into a country store to ask for directions. He regarded the old merchant with a hint of smug contempt and asked for directions to a store that had a wider selection of goods. The man behind the counter was happy to oblige.
He said, "Why sure. Leave here and drive 14 miles to the next river crossing. Turn right and cross the bridge. Follow the road up over the mountain and you'll come to a fork in the road. Take the right fork, and you'll drive another 22 miles through some farm land. At the next four corners, you'll see a sign pointing you to the Humble Inn and Country Store. They will have everything you could hope for."
The young city slicker smiled smugly and departed. He drove the 14 miles to the river crossing. He drove up over the mountain and came to the fork. He followed the right fork and drove another 22 miles through rolling farm lands. He came to the four corners and followed the sign to the Humble Inn and Country Store. As he pulled up in front of the store and noticed the man who had given him directions locking up for the day.
He got out of his car quickly and said "Hey, why did you send me on a wild goose chase for?" The older merchant looked at the younger man and said, "You didn't think what I had was good enough the first time you were here, and so I thought maybe you needed a second chance to change your opinion of what we have here at the good ol' Humble Inn."
