CAPTION: Jul 09 2017: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
“I am calling for a global code of conduct that promotes integrity in public information,” writes UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
This sounds noble since everyone wants integrity. However, in such a fractured world, you have to ask, whose “integrity” are we going to use as the standard?
Guterres further explains:
“The war on science must end. All policy and budget decisions should be backed by science and expertise.”
Is he talking about the “science” that gave us the theory of evolution, which gave us humanism, which gave us atheism, which led to the elimination of the Bible from our school systems?
Is he talking about the “experts” who tell us that atheistic socialism can be made to work even though it has a zero historical batting average? Or the “experts” who tell us that homosexuals are born that way? Or the “experts” that tell us that the Bible is just a book of old legends?
Everybody agrees that the world is broken. But they have tossed aside the operation manual and are scrambling around looking for “science” to repair it. Well did the apostle Paul warn us about “science falsely so called” in 1 Timothy 6:20-21: “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: which some professing have erred concerning the faith.”
We also have our share of “profane and vain babblings” that are most difficult to avoid these days. But those “babblings” are lies of Satan created to bring on the darkness of the last days that is prophesied in scripture. And the UN Big Brother wants to shut down every opportunity to get the truth out against those lies.
Jesus said that a darkness will come when no man can work, but we have enjoyed a few hundred years of broad daylight for the gospel. Nevertheless, the warning still stands as an urgent reminder to redouble our efforts to fulfill the Great Commission and go and preach the gospel while we still can.
Chick tracts are designed as little preachers. They begin with an engaging story and end with the challenge of the gospel. They are a short sermon so as not to bore the reader, but they place a vital decision squarely on the heart: choose eternal life in Christ, or suffer the punishment of hell for rebellion against your Creator.
Judgment is certain. We will all stand before our Creator sooner than we think.
