10. The ASA


10. The ASA


Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
1 Cor 1:20

So if the war is not against flesh and blood (mere mortals), then who is it against?

Since this is a Bible study, let’s focus on the biggest enemy of the Bible itself.

Who, or more specifically, what is the Bible’s biggest enemy?

Naturalism.

Huh?

I know. Stupid, boring-sounding word. But naturalism is like the Gatling gun in The Last Samurai.


If you are not invincible to its bullets, you will be shot down, and there will be no getting up.

So what is Naturalism? Naturalism is the presupposition / belief that nothing supernatural exists; anything and everything can be explained by natural forces. So no God. No miracles. No nothing outside the ordinary. Thus, the Bible can be regarded as an ancient text of archaeological value, it holds no credibility as a historical document, and is relegated to mere literature, full of the fanciful imaginations of unscientific man.

Technically, naturalism isn’t the enemy, but the enemy’s weapon of choice. With this weapon, the lords of the unseen world target Western civilization (namely North America and Europe).

Naturalism is spouted and propounded by the educated, namely Secular Acadamia, whose #1 agenda-driven mission is to demolish the Bible’s credibility…not just on religious grounds, but even as a trustworthy historical text. Thus, the ASA denounces anyone—layman, scholar, scientist, historian—who would take it seriously (let alone actually believe in it and the supernatural) as “ignorant, stupid, or insane.”


I will refer to this weapon from here on out as the ASA (Agenda-driven Secular Acadamia).

Don’t let them tell you what to believe. Be a rebel. Examine the evidence as you go through this study, and decide for yourself what you will believe.

Swordcraft Tip: Highlight 1 Corinthians 1:20 in your designated spiritual warfare color.
