The Wicked Boast

Comments Off on The Wicked Boast

The psalmist asked some of the same questions we ask today about wicked people and God’s people.

  • Why are the wicked prospering?
  • Why are Christians being oppressed?
  • Why are people so boastful of wicked things?

The point he was trying to make was that the wicked do not believe in God, whether they admit it or not. (Psalm 10:1-11) Their greed and evil ways drive God right from their heart.

My assertions about those who do not believe in God are these:

  • They suffer from laziness – Most who do not believe in God have not honestly studied the Bible
  • Their ego is in the way – It is difficult to conspicuously change one’s mind
  • They are immersed in self-pity – Most people know when they are doing bad things

The attack that Atheists bring against Christians is intellectual, the implication being that only the uneducated believe in God. To get to that argument, those “educated” people have to ignore logic and evidence outside the Bible that God exists.

So where does atheism come from in those “highly educated” people?

They are wicked.

They love the darkness that covers them and embrace the evil in their heart. (John 3:19)

The import result of practicing good habits is the momentum we get as a reward. The body gets stronger, the mind gets stronger and the spirit gets stronger. It becomes easier and easier to maintain all three of these parts of ourselves as they improve.

Isn’t this a major teaching point all of the major New Testament players were trying to make? (Galatians 6:7)
