How many of these faulty arguments can you find today?

  

Self-refuting statements
You will probably most typically find them in the media, or secular college/school campuses. Pay attention and see if you can hear any of these, or similar ones, throughout your day! 
“Don’t judge me.”-The person saying this is making a judgement. 
“There are no absolutes.”-Are you absolutely sure?
“Everything is an illusion, nothing is real.”-So that statement is an illusion and I shouldn’t trust it? 
“I want to rid myself of all desire.”-So…you desire…to not have desires? 
“There is no truth.”-Is that statement true?
“You can’t know truth.” -How do you know that?
“You should doubt everything.” -So I should doubt what you just said?
“You shouldn’t force your morality on people.” -You are forcing your moral view, that I shouldn’t force my moral view, onto me. 
“You shouldn’t try to convert people.”-Then why are you trying to convert me to the position that it is wrong to convert?
“You should be tolerant of all views.” -Then you should tolerate my view. 
“It’s true for you, but not for me.”-Is that just true for you, or for everybody?
“All truth is relative.”-Is that a relative truth?

Common misunderstandingsĀ 

  
“I don’t believe God would send anyone to hell. Doesn’t the Bible say God is love?”
Yes, 1 John 4:8 says God is love. However, God is also;
Just (Deuteronomy 32:4)

All powerful (Psalm 33:9; Isaiah 40:28; 46:10)

Omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12; Jeremiah 23:24)

All knowing (Romans 16:27; Hebrews 4:13; 1 John 3:20)

Sovereign (Romans 16:27; Hebrews 4:13; 1 John 3:20)
And much, much more…
To limit God to just one quality and ignore the rest of His attributes, is idolatry. By elevating God’s love and ignoring His other qualities, you are forming a god of your own image to fit your own needs. You are picking and choosing which qualities of God you like and discarding the ones you do not. You have made up in your mind a god that does not exist. A god that does not convict you of your sin. A god that allows you to live however you want without any guilt. 
So yes, God is love, but He is much, much

more than just that. He is a righteous, holy, perfect, all knowing, infinitely powerful, all wise judge. And because He is a good judge, and not corrupt, He will not allow evil to go unpunished. But evil is not just murder, rape, robbery, ect…It is lying, lusting, taking the Lords name in vain, stealing… So if you haven’t already, repent of your sins and put your faith in Christ alone for the forgiveness of your sins.
