The Bible: “I Don’t Believe It!”

“Thy word is true from the beginning”
–Psalm 119:160

“thy word is truth.”
–John 17:17

“Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.”
–Psalm 119:142

One of the bedrock beliefs of Christianity is that God’s Word is the truth, the WHOLE truth and nothing but the truth.

Therefore, it is always surprising to hear one of the church folk exclaim–when informed that of something in the Bible with which they don’t agree–“I don’t believe it!”

The proclamation–or words to the effect–is so common as to elicit resigned YAWNS from the believer–instead of outrage.

MORE: I Don’t Believe It!

The following example was given about five years ago.

EXAMPLE #2 – A new person was introduced. The introduction went something like this:

“This is Joe So-and-so. He was a regular here five or six years ago and now he’s come back!”

Jim So-and-so continued:

“I was a born again, tongue-talking, Holy Ghost-baptized believer. But I was a backslider and couldn’t stay out of the bars. But it got old and now I’ve seen the light and I’m back!”

It was not mentioned that “backsliding” is a concept foreign to the New Covenant. Backsliding is only referred to prior to the once-and-for-all sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the subsequent indwelling of the Holy Spirit in believers.

When 2 Peter 2:20-21 and Hebrews 10:26-29 was brought up (“if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins“), Jim So-and-So loudly exclaimed

“Well, I certainly don’t believe that!”

“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.”
–Hebrews 6:4-6

“For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.”
–2 Peter 2:20-21

“For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?”
–Hebrews 10:26-29

NOTE: God’s mercy is NOT to be trifled with. This is is such an important truth, it is included not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES in the New Testament: so there will be NO MISTAKE; NO EXCUSES. And it is not only a single verse, it is several verses ALL making the same declaration: man walks away from the only salvation available to him through the mercy of Jesus Christ AT HIS OWN RISK.

And we do know that some will walk away.

“Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.”
–Matthew 13:5,20-21

But again, when someone declares the Word of God to be false (particularly a church-goer), it pretty much ends the discussion.

One sure way to identify and mark the counterfeit Christian (tare) is by the pretender’s disagreement with what is written in Scripture.

This disagreement is many times expressed as an exclamation of disbelief.

“I don’t believe it!”…is practically the opposite of Christianity.

“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

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
