He That Believeth

"When a man ceases to believe in God,
he doesn't believe in nothing. 
He believes in anything."
-G. K. Chesterton

            John, in 1 John 5:1-6 quoted below is speaking to believers. Those who believe are born of God, and they believe they are born of Him. The author above is telling us that an atheist is a person who claims to believe in nothing. 
            I know that a person who claims himself as his master has a fool for a follower. He will believe and follow in the big bang theory, in evolution, and anything else unimaginable with no proof of concept. He likes theories. 
            I spent twenty-five years of my life placing scientific theories in my mind, and so long as it had a scientific basis, I believed it whether it was theory or fact. (Though I don't think I would have ever believed in Oprah's religion, yet her new religion is just a work-over of the old "New Age" which is a rejuvenation of the Biblical Baalism.) 
            You see these people are without a doctrine. Without a Bible, without a Sunday School Teacher, and without a Preacher, how are they going to know? Not having a good Biblical grounding is nothing. Then anything goes. 
            When anything goes, then everything or nothing happens. There is no control, it is total lawlessness. We can find horrible, undefined happening next door, or just down the street. 
            We must believe in something, and our Jehovah the God of Heaven and the Father of our Saviour Jesus Christ is real. There is no theory in the Bible.

1 John 5:1-6  Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.  (2)  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.  (3)  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.  (4) For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.  (5)  Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?  (6)  This is he that came by water and blood,even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
