The question for all religions has always been - How can I be right with God?
The heathen religions, the cults, and even scores within professing Christianity believe that one can be right with God by obeying the law or doing some form of good works, while being a good person. Many add ceremony and rituals to their belief system of good works and deeds in order to be right with God.
True Christianity is the ONLY religion whereby one is justified by God through faith, meaning belief in Jesus Christ alone.
The Gospel plus works, deeds, ceremony or ritual is another gospel, a false gospel, a damning gospel.
There are many verses that are very clear that one cannot be justified before God by anything man does, for example:
as it is written,
“There is none righteous, not even one;
There is none who understands,
There is none who seeks for God;
All have turned aside, together they have become useless;
There is none who does good,
There is not even one.” Romans 3:10-12 NAS
Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. Romans 3:19-20 NAS
But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:21-23 NAS
For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law. Romans 3:28 NAS
The pseudo scientist has a burden he can't carry, the burden of his sin.
He imagines he can rid himself of his guilt and God through science but the more he discovers the more he realizes that it is an insurmountable burden.
All have sinned and the wages of sin is death!
The perfect and Holy God, creator of heaven and earth became man. He lived a perfect and sinless life and bore the penalty of death that His law demanded for sin.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 1 Timothy 3:16 KJV
And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 1 John 3:5 KJV
But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe Galatians 3:22 KJV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish , but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV
I know enough about Mr. Bennett to be confident that he believes that Christians just refuse to accept a "science" that he believes refutes the Bible and Christianity.
God is the author of all truth. True scientists just discover and prove the word of God.
The fact is no "scientists" has, nor ever will, refute the word of God!
I can top you Mr. Bennett.
If you have a Supplemental NUTRITION Assistance Program card the candy bar is free!
Want a complete meal? Then throw in a Coke and a bag of chips,
they are free also, IF you have the FREE card.
Did you ever notice how fat the FREE card users are?
Have you ever seen a FREE card user open up a bag of chips at the checkout line for her troublesome child?
"Cook: What to do about the Nazis"
"Pay them not to come"
With Mr. Cook, I most often only need the caption or the first sentence or two.
No, we have a national Socialist party now because we pay them with other people's money to become a Socialist. Liberals love other people's money. They vote to take other people's money. They want more and more Socialist programs funded by other people's money.
And then when there is opposition from the other people whose money is taken from them by the Socialists/Liberals, the hate speech arises.
We have had a huge party of National Socialists for quite some time.
Socialists/Liberals are such hypocrites!
Mr. Bennett puts out his hate cartoons, then many Socialists/Liberals come here and attack everyone they believe who is not a Socialist/Liberal with hate and potty speech.
Then if the opposition doesn't show up they just turn on each other and devour one another all hours of the day and night.
Hate, vulgarity, slander, name calling, all manner of potty mouth hate speech 24/7.

If I have to wear a face mask for the rest of my life, I will prevent myself from getting that which you suffer from.
I don't want it.
Keep it to yourself.
You have said many times that you don't want it:
"I rejected your brand of Christianity years ago. Nothing is going to change that."
"I do not fear the Lord and nobody is ever going to convince me to fear God's "wrath."
"The very fact that Jesus was given birth, and came out as little helpless small baby is enough to refute the claim that Jesus is God."
" Jesus sinned"
" Jesus cannot be God"
You have stated numerous times that you don't want it:
"The Bible never has been the word of God and you will never make it so"
"The idea that we are to accept a mass-murderer as an object of worship doesn't reflect well upon Christians at all. If he murdered nearly every human on the planet, God is far more heinous than Hitler. Yet Christians are to willfully worship him without question. Why?"
It is apparent that some practitioners and proponents of Socialism don't see the hypocrisy of criticizing other Socialists.
From some of the comments this morning, it's apparent that a few have no clue whatsoever what spawned this cartoon.
conservative doesn't seem to keep up with current events at all. He's always off the mark when it comes to holding his own in this forum.
You just don't get it either.
