So what? Im not interested in God. Why should I be? Many people today have a lack of interest in and concern of God. Be it that this lack of interest comes through someone wanting to be politically correct so that they can supposedly get along with everyone around them or through their own selfish desire so that they can supposedly do what they want to do without any consequences, many people in the world today have great apathy towards God. Many people today hold that God is imaginary because He does not do what they request when they request it. These people hold that God does not exist and that only in people who are crazy are prayers answered. Many people today poke fun at and try their best to insult those who believe in the one true God. These people say that those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ are uneducated and believe in a book which was written by men who wanted to rule over people. Something for you to think about now and for as long as you live… no matter how long or short of a life you live on earth think of this from time to time before you die while you still have time to think about it. Through my faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God is my Savior, I receive God’s mercy and forgiveness of my sins by no means of my own. (John 3:16-21) Through my faith in God’s promises, teaches me to live my life – commanded to love others even those who hate me and name me as an enemy. (Matthew 5:43-48) My faith in God’s promises command me to forgo my selfish ways and to help those who are in need and to not be materialistic. (James 3:14-18) My faith in Jesus as my Savior, allows me to cross over the chasm between mankind and God made by mankind’s sins against God. (Ephesians 2:11-13) My faith in God thus allows me to be with God forever and ever having a loving personal relationship with God forever and ever. (1 John 2:17) Your faith in being God as imaginary leaves you without mercy and forgiveness of your sins with no way to ever fully pay for your offenses. (Romans 3:19-31) Your imaginary god teaches you nothing of love, compassion nor even tolerance of someone who has a belief different than yours. (1 John 4:8) Your faith in imaginary God teaches you to be selfish and to obtain as much as you can because whoever has the most at death wins! (Matthew 6:24) Your faith in an imaginary God never lets you fully understand nor feel true deep loving relationships; only material ones on earth. (1 John...
Who do you blame, God or Satan? So you are driving along and ‘pop’ a tire suddenly goes flat on your car and it is a new tire! Or, you are walking along and as you go under a huge oak tree, ‘splat’ goes bird droppings down the back of your neck. Or you have a nice comfortable chair where you’ve settled in to for a night of reading and the power goes off so now there is no light for you to read by. These were some very minor things to have happen yet they could be worse. The tire suddenly going flat could have cause you to loose control of the car thus you crash into something which seriously injures you. The bird dropping could have been from a bird with bird flu giving it now to you. The power going off could have been caused by a sudden summer thunder storm with powerful lighting that hit the main power inlet at your home which in turn burns your home down. Things like this and worse happen all the time to someone, somewhere, sometime. Things like this and worse happen to you and me too! When something goes wrong in your life, where do you place the blame? For what goes wrong in your life, do you place the blame on God or do you place the blame on Satan? Why would you blame God for something going wrong in your life? Think about it for a moment; why do you think God would cause something wrong to happen in your life? Wait, you quickly comment; “What about Job and all the turmoil he went through? Didn’t Job loose his children, servants, livestock, herdsmen, and home and suffer physical painful sores? Did not also Job lose all his possessions, his children and health because God let it happen?” Well, yes God did allow these things to happen to Job however God did not actually do any of these things to Job, Satan did. So you now add; “It is then Satan to whom I should blame for all that comes upon me in my life?” Or you state; “I blamed Satan all along for the curses that I’ve encountered in my life. There’s nothing new with this proclamation! All bad things come from Satan!” Well, let’s look at things in my life that may help bring to light whom we should blame or not for the troubles that come upon us in our lives. During my life I have had numerous experiences to which we can discuss who owns the blame. We are only going to touch on a few of them in this article because to go in-depth would take way too long for...
