Seared Consciences

I’ve read a couple of AP newspaper articles with the titles, “Pope emphasizes flexibility over rules for modern families,” and “Pope insists conscious, not just rules, must lead modern families.” I can understand where doctrine, if it is a belief instituted by man and taught by the church, might evolve to accommodate modern families. However, any implication that the Bible must somehow conform to each new age, or modern family, is dangerously close to pleasing people, rather than pleasing God. To suggest that one’s conscious, rather than the Word of God and the Spirit, is more capable of leading modern families elevates man over God.  Paul said, “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron” (1 Tim 4:1-2 NIV).

-----In the early Nineteenth century, the name “science” was applied to deceit for slowly steering the Western world away from the authority of God’s Word. Today, even most Christians hold the Bible hostage to a carefully concocted brew of “scientific” fables. Each fable, with its feet “firmly” planted in a quagmire of assumptions was declared a scientific principle. And the great unwashed hordes bought these wholesale for supporting their broadways leading to destruction. So the more scientific deception became popular, the more it offered mankind’s release from the constraints of God’s Word. The “quest for the origin of man” has always been nothing more than the foolish flight from the authority of God. It’s embarrassing end will be its unavoidable stare into the face of the Judge. After all, God’s authority comes from His authorship of all things, even the pipsqueaks who think they can loose Him in their tiny imaginations.
