Here is one of the primary lessons from the Book of Genesis — the world and Satan are trying to create a campaign of uncertainty in order to erode God's truth and make us believe a lie.
I've got a pen. I'm holding it. If I drop it what's it gonna do? Not too bad. One more time — I've got a pen. I'm holding it. If I drop it what's it gonna do? I've got a pen...
I could do that all night long. Let me take a survey real quick — how many of you out there believe that if I did that for the rest of this weekend, every single time that pen's gonna fall? I think that's a hundred percent.
Let me make sure we offer it the other way — how many of y'all don't believe that if I did this for the rest of the weekend that there's the possibility that one time when I release the pen, it might just float straight up and cling to the ceiling? Anybody believe that? I'm not seeing anybody.
You want to know why? Because you believe in objective truth. You do. But the minute you say "Well, that's science. I'm talking about morality." Oh that makes sense. So what you're saying is, "There is a God but when it comes to morality, 'I'm God.'"
There is a God and he's established right and wrong and up and down and good and bad, but when it comes to things that I'm uncomfortable with him making decisions over, that I'd like to make decisions over, well now you've crossed the line and I get to choose.
Guys here's the hard lesson of Genesis — that the world is trying to create a campaign of uncertainty to take the things that we know are truth and erode them from underneath but if you believe that pen is gonna drop every time then you believe there is right, there is wrong, there is up, there is down, there is good, there is bad, and you don't get to define what those are.
