Who Knows the Mind of God?

Answer: No One.

The war between the evolutionary atheist and fundamentalist believers treads on the ground that both cannot explain in a way that is satisfactory to the other party. Many fundamentalists are against science, thinking it is against the Bible. But science is not against the Bible in any way. People’s beliefs are against the Bible, people’s actions are against God.

Remember Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”

Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Thus science has fulfilled this prophecy. No fundamentalist can deny that science has made this a reality in our time.

So to the fundamentalist who is fighting the war against science, it is a losing battle. Even when we speak of the Bible, knowing every word is true, surely you do not believe you understand every story told in the context of the reality of today. Surely when men put dates on things, it is merely a guess.

I see both as too rigid in their absolute beliefs. I will talk of a fundamentalist as I am one, but I will not say the Bible is wrong, rather men are wrong. No matter what, we have been told or required to believe or told how to think.  All of these things do nothing but confuse people.

Our reality, as I see it, is simple. I do not know the mind of God. Just as the Lord Jesus Christ said that no man knows the day or the hour when he will return.  Only God knows the time and the hour. There are many things that human beings will never understand. So to my point of view, I do not know the mind of God. But God has not told me to care about the beginning dates. He told me to love him above all things and to love neighbors as myself. He does not tell me to worry about the dates of time but to worry about carrying out his message of repentance of sin in my own heart. And to share the message with every human that would care to hear. Repent for the wrong things you have done.

I see great irony however in fundamentalists deciding what is a sin based on what they have been told by the society they live in. Fundamentalist creates sin out of their own misconceptions of moral behavior. Every fundamentalist knows the sins that are wrong stated in the Bible, murder, adultery, sodomy, witchcraft, etc. etc.

Yet I would say that 99.9% of all fundamentalist religious leaders and believers would say using the herb of the field, marijuana is a sin. People will use the quote about not being a drunkard or you may not wake up to answer my call, as their argument. To all the fundamentalists who have never used marijuana, it does not put you in a state that you cannot be woken from because you are too intoxicated. So you see fundamentalists attaching sin to actions they perceive to be sinful because society has been telling him that for years that it is wrong. Yet God has never called it a sin.

In Romans 14:20 “For meat destroy not the work of God, All things are indeed pure: but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.”

So there you have it. God does not judge but men do. If you are offended it is a sin for you. But to those who are not offended it is as God said.  Genesis 1:12 “And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

Men create the sin from their own beliefs and do not even realize it.

So too with science, it is turned into a sinful thing, yet God told Daniel, knowledge would increase. Science has increased knowledge without question. The prophecy has come true, many people will be coming and going in the latter days. You see that everywhere you go.

As the scientist sit and ignore the Bible because some people believe it to be literally true. The scientist themselves seem to not realize it has predicted the future they have created. Thus the Bible proves itself true over and over and over. Fundamentalist knows this and it simply reinforces their belief in the Bible. So should we deny what is obviously true? The Bible has predicted the future accurately.

When the Bible speaks of the time when people will not be able to buy or sell unless they have the mark. That time is just around the corner. Probably in my lifetime and I am running out of time fast. This inability to not be able to buy or sell goods has never been a reality before in human history. Yet day by day we move closer to the moment when only those with the right credentials will be able to buy or sell in a society controlled by technology. People today welcome such convenience.  Fundamentalist sees it as the will of God coming true. Scientists and people at large refuse to believe it even though the words have been there for 2,000 years for anyone to read and it is coming true. The world is moving towards a cashless society. Prophecy coming true.

No believers ignore these (science facts) as old stories, myths as untrue. But it is true and no evolutionary explanation can force anyone with an open mind to believe they know the mind of God and thus state they know the Bible is wrong and science is correct.

As a fundamentalist, we should be more concerned with the war in the hearts and minds of ourselves, our family, our friends, our neighbors. Because we know the Bible is right. We should ask all unbelievers to simply consider that the truth is not understood by them nor is it understood by fundamentalist believers. We do not know the mind of God. We do know the things God wants us to do. However, we do not know all the reasons why we as individuals are asked to speak or write, defend the simple truth of the Bible.

But the one reason we all know is We trust God, and the Lord Jesus Christ for they have shown us in words and actions the truth of their existence.
