Age of Reason vs. Age of Revelation    



  By: Dr. Jake Jacobs
   Published : January 12, 2018


Over and over again in the Scriptures the one true and only God is called "the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the God of Israel." While old and new atheists alike throughout the ages have said they hate all gods, it is ultimately the God of the Scriptures, the God of Israel that they attack and attempt to disavow above all others in their polemics.

This brings me to a favorite guru of many of the apostles of atheism, Englishman Thomas Paine. Thomas Paine's Common Sense published January 10th, 1776 is considered a classic work that profoundly influenced American patriots in 1776 to fight for life and liberty against the tyrannical King George III.  Although not a Christian but a deist Paine uses Christian language and argumentation in his polemical work as he recognizes that the vast majority of his audience in America are Bible believing Christians.

While Thomas Paine said that he believed in God, his "God" was the God of reason not the God of revelation-the God of the Bible. This is why Atheists yesterday and today love Paine's Age of Reason because in it he attacks very explicitly and specifically the God of Revelation-YAHWEH-God, the God of the Scriptures. 

Probably the most prolific response to Thomas Paine's Age of Reason was the founding father Elias Boudinot's Age of Revelation where he beautifully defends Christ, authentic Christianity and the revelation of the God of Israel to the Hebrew prophets and Jewish Apostles in the Holy Scriptures.
