Bill Maher does it again! He demonstrates why he is the attack-dog of the hard left. In one of the most blasphemous diatribes of recent memory, Maher offends the sensibilities of the billions of people who take the Scriptures seriously. Bill Maher was appalled by a recent poll that showed over 60% of Americans believe in the story of Noah. In response he said that God is a genocidal baby killer (watch the video below).
WARNING: Obscene and Offensive Language
Bill Maher is consistent in that he routinely displays his poisonous vitriol and his arrogant animus towards people of faith. For the Christian it’s a no-brainer. Either we side with Bill Maher or with Jesus Christ. Christ himself refers to the story of Noah as a historical fact. (Matthew 24:37)
People of faith perceive the story of Noah as an accurate and just account of God’s wrath against a rebellious creation. Yet, in the midst of judgment there is grace. God had every right to destroy every last human being, even as he had the right to kill Adam and Eve for the first act of treachery. But God, who is rich in mercy, preserved Noah and his family, and even the lower creatures, through the watery trial.
God preserved Noah so that through his progeny the promise made to Eve would be fulfilled: that her seed, Jesus Christ, would crush the head of Satan. Though it looked as if Satan had won, and all mankind was virtually wiped out, God sparred a guilty human race. The story of redemption was alive and it came to full fruition in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Noah’s story teaches us a few things: man is guilty, God is holy and yet He is merciful. This accurate view of reality offends the Bill Maher’s of this world.
When confronted with the story of Noah, people of faith can either agree with Christ or assume that they know better. If Jesus Christ is who he said he was (and he is) then, as the Son of God and God the Son, his assertions carry the day.
Bill Maher has a worldview that cannot account for the existence of God, much less God’s intervention in history. Based upon Maher’s unbelieving assumptions, his opinions make sense. But the Scriptures call a person with these types of assumptions a fool.
It’s ironic that Maher accuses God, who Maher does not believe in, of violating his moral standard. But because he does not believe in God, Maher has no basis for morality. Apparently Maher does not see the utter futility of his feigned moral outrage.
Ever the showman, Maher just likes to shock people no matter how irrational he sounds. So the far left will grant Maher the applause of fools while he heaps up for himself judgment and condemnation before Almighty God. In the end, God judges Bill Maher, not vise-versa. Laugh all you want, but rest assured God will not be mocked.
