False view of Faith

Are You Ashamed Of Jesus? The Truth Might Surprise You!

Romans 1:16 states emphatically that a true Christian is NOT to be ashamed of the power of God revealed in our lives. But…..really how many of us actually live conscious of that fact? I’d bet good money that we don’t even think about the fact we live like we are ashamed every day, not willingly so much as selectively. We avoid situations that place us in the way of telling others about our savior before we actually get into them thus telling ourselves it wasn’t God’s will to speak to them. We justify simple moves to avoid the bigger issue of  spreading the Gospel of power.

“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.”

The power of God is ONLY REVEALED THROUGH US WHEN WE SPEAK ABOUT JESUS AND HIS GOSPEL. Not only that but the righteousness we THINK we have in Christ is directly tied to the preaching of that same Gospel releasing freedom into our lives, so if we become ashamed of that power in ANY WAY we by extension deny God’s power.

Romans 1:17  For therein (In the power of God) is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. “

Now…think about this very carefully, BOTH the righteousness and the power of the Gospel to save us from sin, are tied to NOT BEING ASHAMED of it. Doesn’t that indicate clearly that the majority of so-called salvation’s are hinging upon a proper understanding of this concept?

Romans 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;…”

 What is “Holding the Truth” in an unrighteous way? Could it possibly mean THINK YOURSELF to be saved while AT THE SAME TIME BEING ashamed of the Gospel. The two are oxymoron’s, one cannot be saved and ashamed according to scripture, they are mutually exclusive. Could this be the reason most religious people are deceived? Could it be the reason religions create false premises concerning salvation’s rules to cover for this obvious infraction against God?

The just shall live by faith and in order to live by faith,…God’s version of faith in Hebrews 11:1 you must not be ashamed of Gospel because it counter acts what true faith is! True faith cannot be revealed as the overcoming power it is, if you are constantly countering it’s power in you through your personal embarrassment of what it represents. Religious people only believe what their church tells them to believe, they are in effect trained to understand only a limited experience. Their faith is NOT BIBLICAL and thus not able to overcome the world system around them, which is why man-made religions cannot save us!

 Hebrews 11:1    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

True biblical faith CONTAINS certain ingredients that average everyday faith does not, it has substance and evidence contained within it ready to be released through our lives as we believe, that produces everything religion cannot but being ashamed countermands it’s effect. This is called being double minded in scripture.

James 4:8  
 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts, ye double minded. “

We can CURE our double mindedness by simply getting as close to God as we can, and as far from man-made ideas as possible. We then create an atmosphere where pure biblical faith can grow, sprout and reproduce itself in our lives. This is the true Christian faith in action not the fake religious version we all go to church and see. True Christianity is nothing like we see today, of course some things are but that is how we become deceived, we think we are serving God but all the while we are simply serving our own selfish needs, masking them over with religious duties.

Religion is the single most reliable source of Atheism in the world, why? Because it is a never ending well of excuses why God cannot be real. Religion gives lip service to everything real making it powerless before the world. Religion takes everything the bible says and diminishes it’s viable power through traditions created in the minds of mere men, totally powerless traditions!

Who can look at scriptures presentation of the power of God and think for even a second that Christianity as we witness before us is scriptural? What kind of deception is at work to make us excuse our weak kneed version of faith as the real faith of our fathers? How can we read of Jesus’ life in the Gospels, his healing of the sick, casting out of dark spirits, his renewing of the insane minds around him and think…..”Yeah…that’s the kind of power my religion emits around me!”

James 5:19-20  

 “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death,
and shall hide a multitude of sins.” 

Man’s religion is our greatest err from the truth we could have ever committed against God, we have settled for demonic counterfeits rather than biblical truth. We have replaced his power for a powerless pile of dogmas. Do we really think God could be pleased with our lack of power?

 John 4:13-14


“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this
water (The water of normal mortal life.) shall thirst again: 

 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I

shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be
in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Eternal life means just that, it is life that is SELF-REPLICATING, UNABLE TO DIE not simply unwilling to as the natural life of man is. This water from the well of God himself cannot be overcome, cannot be polluted by the world’s ways, cannot be what religion wants it to become…..weak and unobtrusive into the affairs of men!

God has provided us with a power so great that it’s painful to watch how the church has thrown away that power to BLEND IN WITH THE WORLD it’s supposed to be saving from it’s sin. Do we really believe that God will put up with us as mere shadows of what we are supposed to be?

John 6:53-58

 “Then
“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life
in you.  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal
life; and I will raise him up at the last day.   For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 
 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my
blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
 As the living Father hath sent me, and I

live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.  This is
that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and
are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.”

The Church’s power did not end in the forth century it was merely put to sleep by religious unbelief and only awakened periodically over the centuries in revivals that God caused to awaken his bride to be. But for us to believe we are his church we must believe his word to us, his true description of his body. That and that alone is our reflection not the weak religions ideas of what the church is! Human beings have a bad habit of accepting the easiest solution to a problem instead of digging for truth as 04-05-14 - 1God requires of us!

Think about it, would the God of creation really give up all he had to give up just to produce a powerless religion that believes in nothing and accomplishes nothing of import? Would Jesus really want what we know of as the Christian religion to take over the world? Come on people wake up, religion is the poorest excuse for faith and belief that has ever been invented. For heaven’s sake, it’s created more unbelief that all the Atheists combined over the century’s so why do we think for a moment that God is even in our worthless religions?

If we do not obey to the letter what Jesus commands we are not true believers, the truth cannot set you free if your view of it is warped from what it truly is. Truth is not really truth if all it is, is your personal opinion and not God’s word. The Bible is not a book of suggestions it’s a directional instruction for living life as God requires and e do not get a choice on that! Being ashamed of God is not a hard thing to do, it shows itself at every disobedience, every time your opinion trumps God’s direction, every little fear or pandering to the world’s ways creeps in……you are ASHAMED AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED of being ashamed because he gave more than any human being on this planet, past, present and future.

Kenneth Hagin’s Forgotten Warning

 

A warning that I missed from Brother Hagin, it is very refreshing to know he had it right then and it still rings true today!

CBN.com – Charismatic Bible teacher Kenneth Hagin Sr. is considered the father of the so-called prosperity gospel. The folksy, self-trained “Dad Hagin” started a grass-roots movement in Oklahoma that produced a Bible college and a crop of famous preachers including Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Charles Capps, Jesse DuPlantis, Creflo Dollar and dozens of others—all of whom teach that Christians who give generously should expect financial rewards on this side of heaven.

Hagin taught that God was not glorified by poverty and that preachers do not have to be poor. But before he died in 2003 and left his Rhema Bible Training Center in the hands of his son, Kenneth Hagin Jr., he summoned many of his colleagues to Tulsa to rebuke them for distorting his message. He was not happy that some of his followers were manipulating the Bible to support what he viewed as greed and selfish indulgence.

Those who were close to Hagin Sr. say he was passionate about correcting these abuses before he died. In fact, he wrote a brutally honest book to address his concerns.

The Midas Touch was published in 2000, a year after the infamous Tulsa meeting.

Many Word-Faith ministers ignored the book. But in light of the recent controversy over prosperity doctrines, it might be a good idea to dust it off and read it again.

Here are a few of the points Hagin made in The Midas Touch:

1. Financial prosperity is not a sign of God’s blessing. Hagin wrote: “If wealth alone were a sign of spirituality, then drug traffickers and crime bosses would be spiritual giants. Material wealth can be connected to the blessings of God or it can be totally disconnected from the blessings of God.”

2. People should never give in order to get. Hagin was critical of those who “try to make the offering plate some kind of heavenly vending machine.” He denounced those who link giving to getting, especially those who give cars to get new cars or who give suits to get new suits. He wrote: “There is no spiritual formula to sow a Ford and reap a Mercedes.”

3. It is not biblical to “name your seed” in an offering. Hagin was horrified by this practice, which was popularized in faith conferences during the 1980s. Faith preachers sometimes tell donors that when they give in an offering they should claim a specific benefit to get a blessing in return. Hagin rejected this idea and said that focusing on what you are going to receive “corrupts the very attitude of our giving nature.”

4. The “hundredfold return” is not a biblical concept. Hagin did the math and figured out that if this bizarre notion were true, “we would have Christians walking around with not billions or trillions of dollars, but quadrillions of dollars!” He rejected the popular teaching that a believer should claim a specific monetary payback rate.

to those who give in certain offerings. He wrote in The Midas Touch”

(Many evangelists who appear on Christian television today use this bogus claim. Usually they insist that the miraculous debt cancellation will occur only if a person “gives right now,” as if the anointing for this miracle suddenly evaporates after the prime time viewing hour. This manipulative claim is more akin to witchcraft than Christian belief.)

Hagin condemned other hair-brained gimmicks designed to trick audiences into emptying their wallets. He was especially incensed when a preacher told his radio listeners that he would take their prayer requests to Jesus’ empty tomb in Jerusalem and pray over them there—if donors included a special love gift. “What that radio preacher really wanted was more people to send in offerings,” Hagin wrote.

Thanks to the recent resurgence in bizarre donation schemes promoted by American charismatics, the prosperity gospel is back under the nation’s microscope. It’s time to revisit Hagin’s concerns and find a biblical balance.

Hagin told his followers: “Overemphasizing or adding to what the Bible actually teaches invariably does more harm than good.”

If the man who pioneered the modern concept of biblical prosperity blew the whistle on his own movement, wouldn’t it make sense for us to listen to his admonition?

This article by J. Lee Grady of Charisma Magazine will no doubt be doing the rounds but it is worth reprinting in a day when there is a lot of unquestioned practises around, especially to do with giving.
 
Before he died in 2003, the revered father of the Word-Faith movement corrected his spiritual sons for going to extremes with their message of prosperity.

Part 1 – The Doorway of Proving what we hope for :The Faith of God!

Rom 10:17
 
True faith comes from God, therefore it is empowered by the Words of God as YOU speak them in confession before God. As we learned earlier the Evidence we see in creation about God is ONLY REVEALED through the Faith that God gives you at the New Birth, it contains within it the PROVING of the evidence you now do not see. 
 
Beneath the SEEN WORLD is an UNSEEN WORLD where the the physical realm’s evidences are proven by the spiritual realm to be real, all of science is the outward evidence of the spiritual truth that PROVES it true, no theory of Man that cannot be proven by its counterpart in God’s realm is true.

It is its spiritual structure that HOLDS it together, keeping it from flying apart!
 
Heb 11:1  
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:3  
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Heb 12:2

Always remember that there are TWO kinds of faith, one faith is natural every day belief in what we do, sitting in a chair, walking down the street, natural faith is an assumption that what is will be, BUT God’s pure Faith goes one step further, his faith presents absolute proof OF WHAT HE ASKS YOU TO DO.
Real faith, present tense (Now) faith from God provides proof that the evidences we do see in the physical realm are real and will come forth as promised. God never says what his faith cannot produce therefore his promises in Christ are YES and Amen!
 Jas 2:26  
God’s faith just like natural faith REQUIRES an action to produce results, no matter how much faith we think we have, if we NEVER ACT UPON his instructions then no results will happen, like planting a garden, if you keep the seed in your pocket and never put it in the ground it cannot grow!
2Pe 1:5  
“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;..”
God requires us to know things, his faith in us is not a blind belief, http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002GWWD1E&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrlike mans religion is, but one of PURITY and KNOWLEDGE the proof manifest through our actions. We are a LIVING EPISTLE written in the heart, known and read by all men because we act like he acted while he was here, that’s what Christlike means. 
The Church has FAILED miserably before the world, we act like other men who copied other men instead of being HIS written word in our hearts, revealing the proof of God in the world!

1Jn 5:4  
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1596444312&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr“For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. “

Rev 14:12  
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
Gods Faith doesn’t work UNDER WAVERING, DOUBTFUL CONDITIONS, just think about this for a second, if you had kids that WAVERED and DOUBTED every thing you told them. Would your words mean anything to them? Would your presence matter to them? 
When you have confidence in someone’s word to you, you never doubt the outcome because you possess the proof internally, you trust emphatically that what they say is what will happen because you have experienced them personally. The longer you experience http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0007EHC5A&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrGod’s word and act upon it, the deeper the proof becomes, depth in God is revealed as your faith grows!

Psa 42:7  
 
“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. “

Joh 1:1  
 
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:14

Because we are dealing with not just a part of God but with God himself being planted in our recreated Human spirit, Faith is more than a belief but the result of belief, the proof, the evidence of Hopes and dreams, the very thing that holds every ATOM in the universe together resides in your heart waiting for you to act upon what God says.
This does not seem to be dealing with Apologetic issues but I assure you that these teachings are the very foundation of every thing we believe. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0830816496&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIf you do not understand what true faith is you cannot PROVE to yourself or anyone else that God is real if he’s not real to you first; that is just logical! The Atheist and the Agnostic are looking at a spiritual issue from the BACKWARD position, wanting proof that can ONLY come through personal experience, then turning around and refusing to act upon it to gain the proof. 
It is they who are trapped in a “God Box” never being able to leave the confusion of wanting proof of God and not able to act on it to get the proof they seek! It goes against everything in them to OBEY BEFORE RECEIVING THE PROOF but that is how God made FAITH to work, because in doing it that way it filters out the wavering and doubt our human condition is cursed with. SIMPLE OBEDIENCE to God, NOT A http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=193659417X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrCHURCH, NOT A MAN-MADE IDEA, BUT TO GOD ALONE releases the proof you seek, but you must first do the required action…..SALVATION!

The Bible: Circular Reasoning or Proof of God?

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0882709704&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThe problem with skeptics is NOT their natural skepticism which is good to have but the inconsistent and dishonest way in which they approach God and his word.

The statement “Christians can’t use circular reasoning by trying to prove the bible by quoting from the bible!”
This question which sounds reasonable to the masses who hate all things God, is lacking BOTH common sense and reasonableness  if you use proper logic! The Bible is a written record of what http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0529122170&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrhappened from the beginning until the future, it is God’s memory recorded in writing of the history of the earth. So to even think that its not O.K. to use it to prove the proposition that God exists is at best avoidance of PROOF.
It is like saying you cannot prove that the president lives in the White House by looking inside the White House to provide the necessary proof!

Is it wrong to read the Origin of Species to gain insight into Darwin’s mind or is that also circular Reasoning? 
The fallacy of petitio principii, or “begging the question”, is committed “when a proposition which requires proof is assumed without proof.    More specifically, petitio principii refers to arguing for a conclusion that has already been assumed in the premise, in effect “begging” any listener to “question” the basis of the logic.
Using the Bible to prove it true is a totally different thing because the Bible contains all the evidence needed to prove the proposition true, all that is needed is the FAITH of God to activate the mind to reason it out of the Bible.

Only in recent years has science discovered that everything we see is composed of invisible atoms. Here, Scripture tells us that the “things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
2. Medical science has only recently discovered that blood-clotting in a newborn reaches its peak on the eighth day, then drops. The Bible consistently says that a baby must be circumcised on the eighth day. 
3. At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant (1500 B.C.), the Bible spoke of the earth’s free float in space: “He…hangs the earth upon nothing” (Job 26:7).
4. The prophet Isaiah also tells us that the earth is round: “It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth” (Isaiah 40:22). This is not a reference to a flat disk, as some skeptics http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0805424628&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrmaintain, but to a sphere. Secular man discovered this 2,400 years later. At a time when science and FALSE  believed that the earth was flat, is was the Scriptures that inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world (see Proverbs 3:6 footnote). 
5. God told Job in 1500 B.C.: “Can you send lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, Here we are?” (Job 38:35). The Bible here is making what appears to be a scientifically ludicrous statement—that light can be sent, and then manifest itself in speech. But did you know that radio waves travel at the speed of light? 
This is why you can have instantaneous wireless communication with someone on the other side of the earth. Science didn’t discover this until 1864 when “British scientist James Clerk Maxwell suggested that electricity and light waves were two forms of the same thing” (Modern Century Illustrated Encyclopedia).
6. Job 38:19 asks, “Where is the way where light dwells?” Modern man has only recently discovered that light (electromagnetic radiation) has a “way,” traveling at 186,000 miles per second.

Science has discovered that stars emit radio waves, which are received on earth as a high pitch. God mentioned this in Job 38:7: “When the morning stars sang together…”
8. “Most cosmologists (scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation, in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth” (Time, Dec. 1976). 
9. Solomon described a “cycle” of air currents two thousand years before scientists “discovered” them. “The wind goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the wind returns again according to his circuits” (Ecclesiastes 1:6). 
10. Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power, and motion. Genesis 1:1,2 revealed such truths to the Hebrews in 1450 B.C.: “In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter] . . . And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters.” The first thing God tells man is that He controls of all aspects of the universe. 
11. The great biological truth concerning the importance of blood in our body’s mechanism has http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B001HFLU8I&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrbeen fully comprehended only in recent years. Up until 120 years ago, sick people were “bled,” and many died because of the practice. If you lose your blood, you lose your life. Yet Leviticus 17:11, written 3,000 years ago, declared that blood is the source of life: “For the life of the flesh is in the blood.” 
12. All things were made by Him (see John 1:3), including dinosaurs. Why then did the dinosaur disappear? The answer may be in Job 40:15–24. In this passage, God speaks about a great creature called “behemoth.” Some commentators think this was a hippopotamus. However, the hippo’s tail isn’t like a large tree, but a small twig. Following are the characteristics of this huge animal: It was the largest of all the creatures God made; was plant-eating (herbivorous); had its strength in its hips and a tail like a large tree.
It had very strong bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amounts of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river. He appears impervious to attack because his nose could pierce through snares, but Scripture says, “He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.” In other words, God caused this, the largest of all the creatures He had made, to become extinct.

Encyclopedia Britannica documents that in 1845, a young doctor in Vienna named Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was horrified at the terrible death rate of women who gave birth in hospitals. As many as 30 percent died after giving birth. Semmelweis noted that doctors would examine the bodies of patients who died, then, without washing their hands, go straight to the next ward and examine expectant mothers. 
This was their normal practice, because the presence of microscopic diseases was unknown. Semmelweis insisted that doctors wash their hands before examinations, and the death rate immediately dropped to 2 percent. 
Look at the specific instructions God gave His people for when they encounter disease: “And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself even days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean” (Leviticus 15:13). 
Until recent years, doctors washed their hands in a bowl of water, leaving invisible germs on their hands. However, the Bible says specifically to wash hands under “running water.” 
14. Luke 17:34–36 says the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will occur while some are asleep at night and others are working at daytime activities in the field. This is a clear indication of a revolving earth, with day and night at the same time.

People often wondered why the disease was affecting so many people at one time. They attributed these epidemics to ‘bad air’ or ‘evil spirits.’ However, careful attention to the medical commands of God as revealed in Leviticus would have saved untold millions of lives. 
Arturo Castiglione wrote about the overwhelming importance of this biblical medical law: ‘The laws against leprosyin Leviticus 13 may be regarded as the first model of sanitary legislation’ (A History of Medicine).”

“With all these truths revealed in Scripture, how could a thinking person deny that the Bible is supernatural in origin?”

There is no other book in any of the world’s religions (Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita, Koran, Book of Mormon, etc.) that contains scientific truth. In fact, they contain statements that are clearly unscientific.

“Faith in Christ is not some blind leap into a dark chasm, but a faith based on established evidence.” (Hebrews 11:1 )

The Bible is ANYTHING but circular reasoning, it is a witness to great things proven within its supernatural pages. 

The Bible: Proofs of its Supernatural Origin!

To deny this is to close one’s mind to facts that bother your theory of beginnings.

Part 2 -The Doorway to Belief: How FAITH Opens the Proof of God!

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0964261065&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrAs we learned previously, The Bible cannot be learned from, with “The Mind of the Flesh”mindset; meaning that the Natural Mind is blinded to anything spiritual…..period! The natural human mind cannot imagine the half of what God HAS DONE let alone what he will do BY FAITH!
The words of God are of spiritual nature so it is totally understandable and Logical that it must then be spiritually understood, opened within the spirit man to reveal its proof within you once you have obeyed God. 
This is what the Bible calls “The Renewing of the Mind” http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0890510032&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrrestructuring our thinking so that what God says makes perfect sense to our human mind, the problem is we have become religious rather than smart in our thinking!
 Romans 12
 1I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.
   
2Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
The total transformation of the mind through the Word of God, and remember the Words of God are the containers of proof, of http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002Z14MXI&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrevidence, of answers to our deepest questions. Once we renew our thinking and restructure our mind to think as God himself would think then the Will of God becomes second nature to us!
Man’s religion, his attempt to reach God aside from God’s provisions for Salvation and his CLEAR commands, are mind/flesh agreements that DISAGREE with God’s clear Commands. (Idol Worship is a clear case, praying to saints, confessing to men sin, ALL CLEAR DISOBEDIENCE TO SCRIPTURE
Religion is wearing a Fig Leaf to cover sin instead of allowing God to put the Blood of Christ there. People who are deceived by religion are as blinded by darkness as skeptics who don’t know the Lord at all and cannot see the truth before them, the only difference is that Religion has access to the truth in their laps or http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0830832351&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifron their coffee tables daily and Skeptics don’t. 
 WHAT IS BELIEF?

1. The mental act, condition, or habit of placing trust or confidence in another: My belief in you is as strong as ever.
2. Mental acceptance of and conviction in the truth, actuality, or validity of something: His explanation of what happened defies belief.
3. Something believed or accepted as true, especially a particular tenet or a body of tenets accepted by a group of persons.
This equally applies to science as it does religion, there’s no way around this. Scientists BELIEVE certain things based SOMETIMES on good scientific evidence and other times not so much, so for Atheist’s to say they are not a religion, a belief system is at best a denial of the obvious. 
 
I know they are not a religion LIKE a denomination but in basic terms ALL men worship something, god or God or Humanism or science as a concept to explain who we are, why are we here and where are we going? 
That is where the similarities end through, because without proof there is NO God, Atheists have no firm base on which to stand http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0520261879&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrsince the ALL NATURAL explanation of origins (Evolution) is naked of proof, only circumstantial evidence!
As I have said TRUE BIBLICAL FAITH according to Hebrews 11:1 is the real base on which all Christian evidence rests BUT it must be understood FIRST of all that the requirement of God is to receive HIS FAITH FIRST then all the evidence’s PROOF’S are revealed to the Mind!   

Hebrews 10:34 (Amplified Bible)

For you did sympathize and suffer along with those who were imprisoned, and you bore cheerfully the plundering of your belongings and the confiscation of your property, in the knowledge and consciousness that you yourselves had a better and lasting possession.”

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0690045654&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrFaith produces true Knowledge by stirring our Consciousness with “doubtless” confidence in God’s ability to fulfill what he has said to us, that goes for evidence for whatever we are desiring to get from him!

True Biblical Faith is the heaven sent SUBSTANCE of what we desire, physically or Mentally need to know or have. Faith given by God CONTAINS within its seed every thing needed to BRING that desire into OUR REALITY.

Just as in Science, you MUST STOP doing everything that will taint your results, your heart must be like a “Clean Room” in a Lab, pure from any desire that is Hypocritical to what you want to happen. If you desire Healing it would be a conflict of Interest to keep claiming your sick. Don’t deny the truth, but rather reinforce your true desire with scriptural backing, thus creating the end result as God framed the worlds.


A scientist doesn’t REHEARSE a wrong idea when he knows it won’t get the result wanted, he changes what he’s doing to match the wanted results, in the same way we must change what doesn’t work (Our Confessions to others and ourselves) and start confessing what God says about us, that’s how FAITH serves God’s purposes in our life.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0006UEVQ8&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrWhenever we excel in our desires we are experiencing prosperity from God and that is HIS PERFECT WILL FOR US! 

Hebrews 11:6 (Amplified Bible)

“But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

Did you see that, “whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists“, that is clearly proof of what I’ve been saying about the proper way to get your proof. First http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0007QQULK&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifraccept him by Faith then the proof that he exists follows, its not a blind faith without proof.

“Without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him.” God loves a FAITH following believer, and will ALWAYS answer their prayers of heart felt desire. Faith gets God’s attention immediately and HIGHLIGHTS YOUR NEEDS AND DESIRES.

Psalm 35:27 (Amplified Bible)

“Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”

Mark 11:23-24 (Amplified Bible)

“Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.
    
For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].


This is an exciting verse, or it should be for the skeptic, who is willing top follow the RULE laid down by God in his word, its a chance to PROVE once and for all if God is real or imaginary, but you must first follow what he’s told you to do. This isn’t hard, but the skeptical mind cannot be in obedience to what it rejects from the outset.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0892767286&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIf your in revolt to God in ANY WAY, faith CANNOT WORK, if you are not in total obedience to his requirements YOU HAVE SPOILED THE EXPERIMENT and have no right to criticize God from a scientific standpoint. A scientific mindset would never do what MOST skeptics do normally, rebel against the results because you don’t want to believe the alternative idea.
A true Scientist goes into an investigation UNBIASED trying to find Evidence of ether side of the argument NOT going into it with doubts of one side and belief of the other side strong, HOW could any result but the one expected ever happen? If you are like that your not serious about the results and are the biblical definition of a HYPOCRITE!
