The fallacy that an open mind is a good thing is simply that this mind has no guidelines, and no standards. An open mind accepts all that is acceptable to others regardless of consequences.
Man in his fallen state, and for reasons that are not worthy of his motive, has devised an elaborate surveillance system all over the world with listening mechanisms to spy on the inhabitants of earth in every conceivable area of life. If man can circumvent planet earth with such devices that track movements, and can listen to almost every human being, why then, cannot the Creator of heaven and earth do the same, and much more. So why should we think any less of the capabilities of the divine Creator of heaven and earth.
When considering the peace of God, it is expedient to have His peace within. This is a peace that the world can not give, for the world has not known the true peace of God since the fall of man. When one is saved in Jesus Christ they receive the peace of God. We, as Christians, by faith have made our peace with the Almighty; therefore, . . . . . .
The world has removed God’s judgment from their vocabulary just as they have removed the word ‘sin’ and replaced it with the word ‘mistake.’ You do realize that you can rectify a mistake, but sin is a transgression against God, and man cannot rectify his sin by himself; it has to be through . . . . . .
Approval and acceptance of sin only brings more sin, evil, and death upon mankind. Acceptance only strengthens the resolve of evildoers to commit more evil.
Man didn’t originate ‘the law.’ Do you possible believe that it was man who could think on such a high moral plane as ‘the law’ or what we refer to as the 10 commandments?

4, 6 and 13 in Scripture Rebellion Every chapter in Scripture is saturated with numbers, sometimes they form a repeat pattern, and other times they, at first reading, appear to be unconnected, and sometimes you will not even find a written number, but it’s there in the time, in the…
The Worm and Adam But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. (Psalm 22:6) The worm has no power of it’s own to become a butterfly. It is the power of God that transforms it to such beauty. And when we…
The first death was recorded in that God clothed man with the skins of an animal. The sin of one caused the death of another: an innocent died for the guilty, and this by the hand of God Himself.
We are continually surrounded by the witness of death, both natural and unnatural — the end of all nature and men is death. We shudder at our own demise and many attempt to find ways to postpone the inevitable end. Mankind aches for not merely long life but within man there is a deep intrinsic need for life eternal.
What was the motivating factor that drove Cain to violently murder his brother? We are informed from previous verses that the conflict between these two brothers was not merely a disagreement between two, but it was the conflict of Cain with God — Jehovah. Some have considered this to be the first ‘religious’ dispute which led to the first ‘religious’ persecution. Indeed, that is partly true, for on Cain’s part it was about ‘religion’ — man’s religion versus God’s way and God’s Word.
