My heart aches ...

My heart aches just thinking about God's heart right now. What I'm about to share will rip at your very souls. At least I hope it does.

Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort (Way of the Master) challenged two atheists on Nightline on ABC. You can watch the show at 1p.m. online tomorrow, Wednesday. It will also be aired on television that night at 11:30p.m. However, it was a 90 minute meeting and Nightline will only show 30 minutes because that is the allotted time for the show.

Here is the link http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/story?id=3148940&page=1.

Anyway, what grieves my heart is this ... The two atheists started "Blasphemy Challenge". Basically they, Brian and Kelly, ask people to send them video denying The Holy Spirit. They said and I quote "We wanted to do it in such a way where we stripped the power from religious institutions that instill fear in people," says Brian. "And we did that by blaspheming the Holy Spirit, by showing that we are not scared of this unforgivable sin."

Oh my ... Oh my ...

I can't even put into words what I am feeling. I have not gone to see the website they set up. I am almost afraid my ears would catch on fire! I can only imagine what our Father is feeling right now. How He must ache with sorrow. He sent Jesus, His only begotten Son to die for them, all of them, all of us, and they mock HIM! They laugh and scorn Him. Just like they did thousands of years ago. And yet He longs for them to know Him. To call upon the name of the Lord. To repent and acknowledge His is Lord ... before it is too late. Perhaps it may be. God does clearly say that is the unforgivable sin. Matthew 12:31

I can't believe the nerve of this honestly. I know God warned us that this stuff would be happening the closer we approach Christ's return. I know that things are being set into place but it still hurts. It still stings my heart and brings tears to my eyes.

I can't help but tell the precious Trinity how much I love them today.

I understand the psalmist when he wonders "How long will the enemy mock you, O God? Will the foe revile your name forever? Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them!" Psalm 74:10-11. I can't stay there too long because God's ways are not mine. His ways are always right and true.

All I can do is grieve with Him ... love Him ... share Him ... live for Him ...
and resolve the fact that this is just the beginning.

This has been buzzing around the internet for a while now-- at least since last Dec. It is indeed disturbing. The Point has a fantastic blog about it, and I encourage you to read it. It is somewhat soothing...

Read it and tell me what you think.

The comment section cut off the last part of the web address- so it won't work if you cut and paste. Just go to http://thepoint.breakpoint.org/
and enter Blasphemy Challenge in the search. Make sure you choose to search The Point, not the web.
