Which God do you speak of?

The one that the false believers believe in? Or the one that the uber-precious KNOW is the true one?

God Chose to Give Us Free Will

July 22, 2008

by Shawn Brasseaux
Published in The (Opelousas, Louisiana) Daily World

When God created Adam and Eve, He instilled a free will in their innermost being. God gave them advice, not to mention giving them the opportunity to believe Him or to choose their own way. God did not force them to follow His instructions, as they both made conscious decisions—they chose the latter and ate (we now suffer those consequences).

We are all capable of making rational, intelligent decisions on our own: God could have created programmed robots, but instead has given us minds to use. We can choose to constantly avoid God, or we can choose to be submissive to Him. We can take God at His Word by placing our faith in everything Christ did for us at Calvary, or we can reject it and suffer the consequences. Either choose eternal condemnation in hell, or choose eternal life in heaven.

When the lost unbelieving world stands before God in eternity, they will be there because of their unbelief in God’s Word. They chose to ignore His Word and scoff at it, time and time again. God presented them with truth, but they scorned It every time. “Christ tasted death for every man”(Hebrews 2:9). Every single person reading this has an opportunity to be cleansed from their sins. I present the only two choices: (1) you can believe and trust entirely in the Grace Gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4: “Christ died for our sins, His blood was shed, He was buried, and He rose again,” or (2) you can do things your own way.

Consider what God said in Proverbs 14:12: “There is a way which seemeth right unto man [like meriting favor and working for salvation], but the end thereof is death [going to hell].” You can be defiant towards God, like the majority of the world, and be sent to eternal doom, or you can you come to God by way of the cross, as a lost sinner in dire need of precious salvation, being eternally forgiven all your sins. How amazing! I cannot force you, so you will have to do this out of your own volition. You choose. (I strongly encourage you to follow the advice of the omniscient God.

We are all without excuse, as we have all heard God’s truth numerous times (Romans 1:20; Titus 2:11,12).

Romans 1:

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

 

It's YOUR choice where you spend eternity. Either by receiving the free gift provided by the finished work of Jesus Christ or rejecting it.

I've never thought of Ardbeg as demonic spirit, but that's exactly what it does to me after 3 or 4 hours in its company. Get thee in front of me & we'll soon see who wins that battle.

Just another bit of info here.

“A Christian Wouldn’t Do That”

By Justin Johnson

There was a man who has never entered a church building. He drinks alcohol with every meal. He has representations of false gods on his wall and believes various superstitions. 

He struggles with pride, treats his wife bitterly, and is very materialistic. 

There is another man who gathers regularly with other believers, prays multiple times every day, loves his wife, and spends most of his time and money in pursuit of spiritual things. 

Which one is the Christian? 

Would you be shocked to discover it was the first man? 

“But!” you say, “A Christian wouldn’t do that!”

Salvation is Belief not Behavior

Being a saved person and a saint of God is not a product of a person’s lifestyle. In fact, salvation is not a product of any effort of your own. It is what God performs upon you through Christ’s finished work. 

Since Christ did every necessary work for the salvation of your soul, it is free. There is nothing else required for you to be a saint of God. Christ is your righteousness.

A saved servant of God should not live the lifestyle of the first man, but the first case describes a man who heard the gospel from a stranger just two days ago and has trusted that Christ did every necessary work for his salvation. 

There is no meeting for Christians nearby for this man, and he has only been able to read in his Bible to Genesis 34 in the past two days. He knows a few saved people, but they live a wretched lifestyle and justify their sins by their liberty in Christ.

You say, “A Christian wouldn’t do that!”

But they do, all the time. 

Doctrinal Maturity is Needed to Change Behavior

Remember the Corinthians were called saved saints of God by Paul, but they lived the most reprehensible disrespectful lifestyle of any group Paul addresses. Paul calls them babies (1 Cor 3:1). Their position in Christ was right, their behavior was terribly wrong. 

What the first man needs, as do all babes, is to mature in the doctrines of grace. 

Paul says, the doctrines of grace teach us to live a mature life of godliness, sobriety, and righteousness (Titus 2:122 Tim 3:16).

The effort to walk in right doctrine is not to earn salvation, but for the sake of Christ, the unbeliever, the naysayers, and for the first man who needs a godly example to follow (Phil 3:17). 

Another Example

The second man describes a devout Buddhist. Though outwardly spiritual, he does not believe in any single deity, and believes his neglect of the body is part of the noble pursuit of happiness. 

He has no faith in the gospel, and does not think that Jesus is the only way to God. Surprised? Here is more proof that salvation is not a product of behavior but of belief. 

His lifestyle also aptly describes false Christians that fill American churches. They meet with other “believers”, offer prayers, tithe, care for other people, and count on their good works to be justified before God. 

They are as unsaved as last week’s leftovers, because salvation is not based on the outward appearance but the inward faith. They have no faith in the Christ’s finished work, even though they put enormous effort in pursuing spiritual things (2 Tim 3:7). 

These so-called “Christians” participate in ministries all over the country and do not know or believe the gospel of grace of God. 

What a Christian Should Do

There are so-called Christians who judge salvation by a person’s lifestyle (Titus 3:5). They are wrong to do so. 

There are saved people who justify their own sinful behavior with liberty (1 Cor 6:12Rom 6:15). They are wrong to do so. 

There are “Christians” everywhere who participate in ministries but deny the gospel of the grace of God (2 Cor 11:13). They are wrong to do so. 

What’s that you say? “A Christian Wouldn’t Do That”

Find out for yourself. You might be surprised at what some so-called Christians believe. 

Do the work of an evangelist. This would be the right thing to do. 

“But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” – 2 Tim 4:5

I know it's all pie in the sky man made nonsense, and it's all about faith - But if "God" created the Universe, The Cosmos, Everything that has ever been or everything that ever will be. . . . why did he have his only son horribly mutilated, tortured & then murdered on a wooden timber cross to forgive mankind of their sins, instead of just well forgiving them.

Could never understand that - load of nonsense !!
