RUBE: A person who is not very intelligent or interested in culture.
Awkwardly simple and provincial.
Not wise in the ways of the world—Boy that one is right on!
Lacking complexity! Their main problem? The inability to think outside themselves or to attempt complex thinking.
How about naive, simple?
I watched a video on Netflix yesterday which was in the documentary style, and based on a book which came out in the early 90’s I believe.
Anyway, the book and video were: A Case for Christ, by former atheist, Lee Strobel.
I read the book during my shift from liberalism/new age [satanism] to conservative Christian. I had forgotten some of the great parts of Lee’s similar conversion from aggressive atheist to [guess what] conservative Christian.
I had forgotten some of the things which convinced and changed Lee, a very experienced and well known investigative reporter, and well educated and placed skeptic.
Seeing this video on Netflix reminded me of how really uninformed, brain dead or stubborn or just plain foolish [in both the Biblical and common sense] you have to be to be an atheist.
The video had one thing the book could not have; interviews. Only a couple of “man on the street” types of quick interviews but they were classic for their display of shortsighted ignorance. One guy who was not a believer, said something ridiculously stupid which sounded like; “Well I just don’t believe in miracles.”
I wonder if the atheist realizes that just one inter-dimensional [spiritual] event or one super-material [supernatural] event in the history of the universe blows the walls off of the atheists house of cards. Just one “supernatural” event in the history of the world is a crushing blow to atheism, because it opens the doors of the real universe. The real universe is the unseen universe. I was listening to a physicist the other night and he confirmed something I wrote months ago. Of course I do know what I am talking about but it is nice to hear public confirmation. The universe probably consists of at least nine dimensions.
The Old Testament and New Testament are science and history, not a fairy tale. The existence of God is not a religious thing it is a scientific fact. We are not talking religion we are talking science and history and that is what convinced an aggressive atheist like Lee Strobel.
The atheist in their aversion to the Southern Baptist or Judaism or Islam is in denial of the science and history. If living with the false beliefs of the 18th or 19th century does not make you a rube I don’t know what does.
“The Case for Christ” Science and History! [along with some other disciplines]
Never forget, in this blink of an eye we are living out of billions of quadrillions of years, this short life is a test. It is a test being given under the adversity of a universal war.
And NOTHING matters except your answer to this one question: “Who do you say that I am?”
AGAIN! NOTHING in this short test matters EXCEPT YOUR ANSWER TO THIS ONE QUESTION: “Who do you say that I am?”
That is what this life is ALL about. And the atheist is stuck with 18th and 19th century liberalism. [SMILEY FACE 🙂 GOES HERE!!!]
The following quote applies today EXACTLY the same as when it was first written, because the work of God is as current today as it was 2000 years ago.
“Hence, we determine with certainty, that religion is that great business, to which all men ought to attend; and that blessing, after which all men should seek, whatever else be neglected, superseded, or postponed.”
Now, the One whose precepts include; “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” wants us to be “productive.” BUT, you better know what is important! Covering your own rear end should be one of your priorities and obviously the atheist does not get it!
No Matter What! You had better have the correct answer when you are asked: “Who do you say that I am?” We all have everything we need to have the correct answer to that question!
“The Case for Christ!”
