God Is Still God!

It doesn't matter if you believe or not. It doesn't change the fact that God is God. He is sovereign, He is omnipresent, He is omnipotent. More than 2000 years ago, men tried to kill Him, because they didn't like what He said. You see how well that worked for them! Yes, He died, but He rose from the dead, and is still with us.

Christians are accused of being intolerant when we express Biblical truth. We are told we are one sided, because we think only God's word is right. One thing you can't ignore or destroy is God made a one sided world from the beginning. The world operates on one-sided-ness every day. Two plus two equals four. It will always equal four. An orchestra is filled with many instruments, each with their own sound. They are played according to a set of musical laws. If each played instrument played whatever, it wanted, it would be noisy chaos. All aeronautical engineers build aircraft with a single set of aerodynamic laws. You can say that's not right all you want, but it doesn't change it.

A dress and heels don't make a woman, if God designed you as a man. Having sex change surgery doesn't make you a woman, if God designed you as a man! You can argue, debate, and justify it, but it doesn't change who God designed you to be! Believing God somehow made a mistake in creating you 
is a lie from satan.  If God wanted you to be a male, He certainly didn't mistakenly create you a female and then tell you to change it.

God knew who and what you would be, by His plan, long before your parents were born. That eliminates the theory that He made a mistake designing you. I know those who are gay or transgender believe God made a horrible mistake, and that they know better than God. If they believe satan's lies, it gives them a license to sin. It's someone else's' fault. We have all done that at one time or another, but if we belong to God and follow Him, we learn, we turn from that behavior, acknowledge it is sin, and take responsibility for our actions.

Satan loves to drive a wedge between humans and the God who created them. Some will say the Bible isn't true, God is all about love. Yes God does love you, but if you don't get right with Him, and quit going against His word, you will suffer the consequences. He is a loving God, but He is also a just God. You can argue about the Bible all you want, it doesn't change God's word. Some say man wrote the Bible. Yes they did do the physical writing, but God did the dictating. When you read the Bible all the way through, it builds on itself, it proves itself, and prophecies at the beginning are fulfilled hundreds of years later. How do a few men manage that. 

If you don't believe it, or live it, it is still God and only God's Holy word! He doesn't need you to help Him explain the Bible. He wants your love, your faith, and your obedience, given freely as your choice. If you don't know God intimately, it is easy to let satan deceive you.

What I say next is not to be mean, judgmental, or intolerant. It is the opposite. I have the love of Jesus in me, and I want that for you, if you are not there. If you aren't following God, by having a personal relationship with Him, you are lost. That allows you to live outside God's word. That breaks my heart, because I was there once. I believed satan's lies. I even worshipped satan. 

You may not believe in God. You may think you are fine. I did. You may even go to Church, you are a nice person. You even do nice things for others. But you also may not know who God really is. You don't know His personality, and maybe sin is no big deal to you. If I sit in Church every week, that doesn't make me a Christian, any more than sitting in a gym makes me an athlete.

Whether you believe me or not, God's word says in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." Jesus says that because He died on a cross, so His blood could cover my sins, your sins, so we could fellowship with God. It is your choice to choose how you will live. There is no gray area. It is either black(satan) or white (Jesus). Your choice does affect your eternity. Everyone faces eternity, but where you spend yours is your choice.

Remember, just because you don't believe the Bible, or God, it does not change His sovereignty. You can call me judgemental but it will not stop me from praying for you. It will not change my mind. God remains the same, His word remains the same. As a Christian and an American, I can not let a few tell me that their skewed ideas are right. 

I am no ones' judge. God has that job. He will judge everyone someday. My sins are forgiven, I am assured of Heaven, but I will still be judged for what I said, did, or didn't do. God will only allow so much evil before His righteous anger kicks in. God is, and always has been in control. Even if you don't believe that, it's still true! God is God!
