People more than ever are living their lives by their own beliefs. That’s why I believe the Holy Spirit has me writing on this again.
To take the Bible and choose what you like about it and then discard what you don’t is a form of creating your own Gospel.
In fact, like I mentioned it before it’s like having a spiritual buffet. I’ll have a little of that, and that, oh I like that. Wait a minute, I don’t like that at all. I don’t even understand why that item over there is even in the buffet, it’s not appealing at all. Who likes that?
By the time 100 people choose to go through the spiritual buffet route, we have 100 different spiritual beliefs.
Is that a problem? Yeah, it is when we are supposed to serve a perfect God who gave a perfect Word to a fallen corrupted human race.
Proverbs 14:12 –There is a way that appears to be right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.
God wants us to serve Him. He wants us with a free will choose to obey Him. How can we do that?
Without a guide book how could we ever blindly follow and please Him? We can’t. We have to follow His commands and words to please and serve Him. Where can we find this Word? In the biggest most sold book of all time.
Not exactly a needle in a haystack is it? The most sold BOOK of all time.
So why do an abundance of people dislike the Bible. Cause it points out our faults. The Word of God warns of coming judgment for those who don’t want to ask for forgiveness and serve Him. It points out our faults. Its audience pertains to 100 percent of those who have lived on earth. The One who doesn’t need the forgiveness part is the One it’s completely about.
In America, for many years now, we have taught how to be a self serving, self seeking bunch. We have a very unsatisfied society. God didn’t make us to be self seeking beings.
Romans 2:8 – 8 But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
God really wants us to seek Truth and not our own beliefs.
Here’s a great domino effect that needs to happen. We seek God and what He wants for our lives and in return we will love and serve others in His name. Not in our name, in His name.
God wants to be God of our lives. That means we can’t be. If you haven’t ask for forgiveness of your sins and accepted God’s perfect sacrifice, don’t wait any longer. Jesus needs to be your Lord and Savior. He was involved in creating us and was willing to die for us. He is worthy.
