Psalms 53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. I met a man who stopped by while I was street preaching who was trying to tell my boys that I was lying to them. So I let him know that the Bible is true, there is a Good and he will be judged by God whether he believes it or not. So he tried to tell me a ludicrous explanation for the origins of Yahweh. I looked up his argument once I got home after reminding him that the Bible is God’s inerrant word and that he needed to repent for I do not wish this atheist to go to Hell. I am amazed at how little information you can use of historical fact to create a following and be viewed as an expert. Of course Mark Twain said an ex is a has been and a spurt is a drip under pressure. So a copper smelting site was found that the Edomite took over after the Egyptian left suddenly. Sounds like the time of the ten plagues to me. Well the Edomites destroyed the Egyptian idol of the smithy god and set up a tent over the sight. They found no idol nor name of a god yet assume this was a worship area. Then assume that the god they worship is the God of the Hebrews and that this is the Canaanite smithy god and then marry Jehovah to Ashteroth. Quite a leap of fancy to go from Edom to the Canaanite god which has a different name and blend the incoherent theology of the Canaanite with the carefully articulated majesty of the Jewish Scripture. But if a man wants to get out from under the burden of his sin without getting right with God, if he wants to evade the blood of the Cross they will grasp at any straw. So we have a man going to hell based upon spurious speculation and questionable conclusions equal to the fallacies of evolution. May God have mercy on his soul and Grant him repentance.
