The Incredulous Hulk Award!

I have been motivated by the first in the list of blog authors to create this “award”. This ‘award’ is to anyone that stubbornly refuses to honour God & to accept & thank Him for the forgiveness that He gave us in Jesus / Yeshua that restores fellowship & the literal ‘life line’ to Him. …hence these people willingly cut themselves off from the source of their life – which reminds me of the Darwin Awards – except, the people that receive the Incredulous Hulk Award (seemingly) don’t do so by accident. Also, for the record I’m convinced that there are deep flaws in typical evolution theory.

Christians should understand why people are blinded in this way & even though this may be a way to ‘playfully warn’ the unbeliever, we need to pray for them that they will be granted repentance & restored to life. …which they are likely to ridicule, …but that should also not be a surprise.

We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.  For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.  For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.  For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.  Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

So, without any further ado, the blogs / sites / people that received this award thus far:

  1. http://corruptheretic.wordpress.com/2012/05/10/heretic-mad
  2. http://wereallmadinhere.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/my-dreams also this link

If you feel that you want to ‘award’ this to someone else – go ahead, email them the link or something. If you want to reuse this satirical post on your blog, you should link back here or repost to make the meaning clear & the link posted should indicate the relevant blog post that most makes the reason for the ‘award’ clear.

Note that atheists or people of other religions you encounter may need apologetics (authoritative & compelling information to help you defend your faith or understand it better) to help them overcome some intellectual hurdles or answer some questions. I highly recommend Apologetics315 – go have a look at the site & listen to some of the audio there – especially if you’ve not been exposed to apologetics before.
