Report #31 – The UnderDog Says:

A Popular Opinion on God

Recently ‘Holly-Weird’ actor Brian Cox (Lead actor on the Successions TV show) came out and said, as reported by The Gateway Pundit,

“…the Bible is one of the worst books ever… [people] believe it because they’re stupid…[the Bible] is not the truth, it’s a mythology.”[1]

Most Popular

Mr. Cox went on to say people need something, but not the ‘lie’ the Bible has to offer. He also considered it nonsense that Eve could have been created from Adam’s rib in the book of Genesis.

Gee, if you believe God created the entire universe, than it is simply to believe he could make a woman from Adam’s rib.

Brian is a 78-year-old man who has been in the Hollywood spotlight for decades. In his 2021 autobiography “Putting the Rabbit in the Hat,” he felt the need to elevate himself by putting down other significant men in his industry. These included Johnny Depp, Michael Caine, Richard Harris, Quentin Tarantino, Edward Norton, Daniel Day-Lewis, David Bowie, Jonathan Pryce, Gary Oldman, Michael Gambon, and Steven Seagal.[2]

Is the person we should take advice about the Bible from? By his estimation, all people who believe the Bible are stupid, or using a less offensive word “foolish.” Believe it or not, that makes total sense. That’s right, the Bible is foolishness to those that don’t believe because they do not have the ability to understand it. They are missing something:

1 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV) The person [national man] without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.

A Mini Parable

Picture two people looking at a mountain. Only one has strong binoculars and says to the other, “Can you see the bear on that Mountain?” The other replies, “No I can’t see a bear, I don’t believe there is a bear, and you are a fool for trying to tell me there is.” The first-person hands his binoculars to the other, he sees the bear and exclaims: “I was blind, but now I see!”[3]

It is the Holy Spirit, (God, in Christ in us)[4] that gives us the relationship with Christ and opens the eyes of our understanding to the Bible and other spiritual things.

There is No God

People without God’s spirit frequently think the Bible is foolish and in doing so, they become a fool. They don’t believe in the God of the Bible and there is a verse that supports this:

Psalms 14:1 (NIV)…There is no God

Of course, I conveniently deleted the beginning and end. It’s fake news. Here is the whole verse:

Psalms 14:1 (NIV) The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.

Not only are they fools for not believing in God, but they are corrupt, vile, and they do no good. So, people who don’t trust and disagree what it says in a book they don’t read, should not be surprised when they are sent to a place, they don’t believe exists!

Nice Christians Get Along With Others

I remember seeing something close to this on the internet:

Be wary of any belief system that causes division between you and other Human Being. (Author Unknown)

If your belief is unpopular, abandon it. Just get along with others and don’t let your faith separate you from the crowd. This is MASS RULE THEOLOGY requiring people to shift their believes to the trends of the day. The very core of Christianity causes divisions with the popular opinions of the world. Jesus said:

Matthew 10:34-35, 39 (NIV) 34 “…I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law…39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

Jesus is unpopular, I am sorry to tell you. Although his burden is light compared to others,[5] faith in Him is strange to the world and they will resist believing and hearing about it. You may be offended by this statement, but you should understand the god of this world (Satan) manipulates the opinions of the day. The true God’s opinions do not agree with his. We as humans must choose which one to believe.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (KJV) 3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Science Vs. Christianity

Today, nearly half of all American do not attend church.[6] Part of this is due to people not being able reconcile what they see as scientific fact and faith. But faith and facts are intricately entwined with one another. If God created the world, then He created science. They two do not disagree with one another.  If they appear to, it simply a misunderstanding or a lack of information (Let the naysayer questions begin!).

St Augustine, (That guy that used to live in Florida) wrote how reason puts man on the road toward God and how faith informs and elevates reason. “I believe, in order to understand; and I understand, the better to believe” (Sermo43:9)… Reason is the vehicle, which, if driven correctly, takes us to the door of faith.[7] Logic brings us to faith.

A Leap of Faith

Think about jumping out of an airplane without being attached tandem to another person. You can take as many classes with as much detailed information as possible. You can absorb as much knowledge as you can about the correct form and equipment. The bottom line is, however, no matter how much training you had, it still takes faith to jump out of the plane.

It is the same way with God. If God created the world and all that is in it, then He created logic.  There is no logical thing, or scientific fact that would contradict the Bible since he is the author of the Bible. We should remember that the Bible is a complicated book.[8] God had to hide and conceal many things.[9] Logic brings us to God.

Religion Vs. Christianity

Another thing that keeps people from understanding and believing in Christ is the confusion between Religion and Christianity. They could not be more opposite. Religion is man’s rules and regulations, the opiate of the masses Karl Marx said. Christianity is not a religion; it is the way of a loving father with His children. Everyone wants a loving Father.

 Christianity vs. the ‘Christian’

Looking at people who profess to be Christian as the standard of Christianity is dangerous. People are people and we are all aware only negative news about Christians makes it into the media. For this reason, many Christians stop going to church and many people decide not even to entertain Christianity. When you look at people, you will ALWAYS be discouraged; when you look at Christ, you will NEVER be discouraged.  By the same token, Christians are warned in the Bible to act Godly since others will be looking and evaluating us.

We need to be good representatives of Christ for ourselves and for others. Even something as simple as what we eat may cause others to fall.[10] We should always be aware we represent Christ, not with a false façade, but as true believers not harming other’s opinion about Jesus. We should not only be witnesses of Christ with our words, but with our life.  Unfortunately, some Christians fall short of this and those looking at them could be lost.

Don’t be LOST, be FOUND in Christ!

  1. Great Article, it’s year six for me reading the King James Bible (KJB) cover to cover in one year. On top of that I study almost daily, host a weekly in home Bible Study and go to a local ‘church house’ on Sunday’s. Not bragging it’s just that the Lord Jesus Christ gave me the free gift of salvation and a new heart. It’s all Him. No works on my part just belief, plus nothing. I was a horrible rotten sinner, running away from God at 17 until my late ‘50’s.
    Mr. Cox, here’s the Biblical ‘F’ bomb for you: FOOL! Rom 1:22 and many other places. If you live like a fool and do not change you’ll die a fool and be judged, according to your deeds, by a Pure, Holy God and cast into the Lake of Fire Rev 20: 7-15. All for refusing His free gift of eternal salvation offered by the Lord Jesus Christ, I Corinthians 15:1-4. This is a no brainer.

  2. Very good article but it really needs proofreading! “National” man? Instead of “natural”. Just one of many goofs.
