Handling the Word of God

Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

(2 Corinthians 4:1-2) NKJV

We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) have developed a paradigm which allows us to use physical evidence and empirical observations to confirm the truth: Jesus Christ is the light.

Hold Fast

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

( Hebrews 4:14 )

So supposedly I was destroyed by a YouTuber. The funny thing is I don’t feel destroyed. I feel exactly the same as I did before I had even heard of that particular YouTuber. Do you know why? Because I wasn’t destroyed. What happened was that someone disagreed with me and made a video about disagreeing with me.

There is a simple reason why this is not a problem: my work is based upon the Word of God. I started with a simple premise: God cannot lie. If God cannot lie, but the Bible and science appear, at least superficially, to tell completely different stories about the origin of the earth, then science is always wrong. It doesn’t matter how many YouTubers want to go on record as saying the opposite: that science is right and the Bible is wrong. It’s sadly irrelevant. It’s sad because they have taken a stand which puts them in opposition against God, but that’s their problem, not mine.

The passage which I frequently refer to as being a Biblical expression of the truth that God cannot lie is in Paul’s letter to Titus:

Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

( Titus 1:1-2 )

It is interesting that this is stated again with even more veracity in Hebrews:

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

( Hebrews 6:18-20 )

Two immutable things?

  1. Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil,
  2. Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

It is impossible for God to lie, therefore we have hope that the soul will enter into the veil, because Jesus Christ has already entered.

So Titus and Hebrews both tell us that it is impossible for God to lie. It’s interesting that atheists love to spout their superficial propaganda that if God cannot lie then he obviously isn’t omnipotent. What they haven’t grasped is that God had to created a physical system in which lying was possible in order to manifest free will, but he is outside, beyond and not limited by this system.

This gets me a little closer to the issue of the day: lying.

The YouTuber who supposedly destroyed me made a video so long and tedious that I only made it through about 1/3 of it, and that was a struggle. I have been pondering whether or not I owe it to him to watch the whole thing? On one hand, if I don’t watch it then I can’t respond to it point by point, and I won’t know if there is anything substantive in it which may have merit. This also gives him cause to say something along the lines of me being scared and unwilling to face the reality of his intellectual superiority.

The fact is I’m not scared enough to force myself to watch the video, because there’s nothing to be scared of. God cannot lie, it is impossible for God to lie. God had to create a whole creation just to make it possible for US to lie. Therefore the Bible is true and popular science is wrong. So here’s what I decided: The YouTuber who supposedly destroyed me may be the first but he will not be the last. I would imagine that if God allows the social media reach of Matty’s Paradigm to increase they will become fairly frequent. So how do I plan to handle this? Given that nothing any of them can say can change God, His Word, or the truth? I took another quick look at the video to collect some data:

  1. In the video the host described my blog as stupid at the 15 second mark,
  2. The host starts lying at the 1 minute 42 second mark.

I think I’ll watch any commentary video about me up to the first lie. That’s all.
