Our Phlegmatic Façade

As we move now half-way through our Ten Tenets, the next tenet we want to keep in mind in our apologetic is, in some significant ways, central. So, it is fitting that it appears at the “center” of our list. Tenet 5 is this:

All people know the true God, and that knowledge entails covenantal obligations.

It will be obvious to routine readers of these articles, but, just in case someone is coming into this discussion de novo, we should remember the relevant text of this tenet:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth 1in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident 1within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not 1honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened (Rom. 1:18-21, NASB).
