THE PARADOX

Some questions have tricky terminology: "Is the answer to this question NO?"

In this case, if you replied no, you would be stating that the answer is NOT NO.

If you reply yes, you are stating that it is NO, because you said yes.

"This statement is false"— if the statement is true, and the selection of “the statement is false,” thereby the answer has made the statement true.

Another example of vicious circularity is the following statements:

"The statement below is false."

"The statement above is true.”

Other paradoxes involve false statements or half-truths and the resulting biased assumptions.

For example, consider a situation in which a father and his son are driving down the road. The car collides with a tree and the father is killed. The boy is rushed to the nearest hospital where he is prepared for emergency surgery. On entering the surgery suite, the surgeon says, "I can't operate on this boy. He's my son."

The above are a few examples of the use of the paradox; the one of interest is false statements or half truths resulting in bias assumptions.

One of the ERRORIONIOUS examples today is the ASSUMPTION THAT ALL RELIGIONS ARE EQUAL.

The equalization of gods is absolutely forbidden by JEHOVAH for HE declares he is the only GOD. No nation can legislate and make a law to change that and any that try will have to face an angry GOD. In doing so they are acting as if they honor GOD by exalting false gods.

"For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?"

Though simply stated; man’s entire future existence revolves around these questions and the answers to them. To my knowledge there was only one man who actually fully faced this dilemma, for no one else had the potential of gaining the whole world, and that man was Christ.

Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; and he said to Him, “All these things I will give you, if you fall down and worship me." Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.’” Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him."

The answer Jesus gave was concise, all encompassing, and final. Most of us will never receive such an offer of that magnitude but will be offered a small portion of it. The captivating forces are known as the seven deadly sins of wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

These seven sins are the weapons of Satan’s warfare, designed to render the Christian useless in the kingdom of GOD. Who is subject to these sins?

Everyone who names the name of Christ, and if you are a believer it includes YOU. What to do; Ephesians 6 has the answer, Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, but it is a got to do it issue.
