There Was a Time...

There was a time when there were no religions:  Only God walking with mankind and mankind with God in Spirit and in Truth.  God made man in His image, which included man receiving freewill.  There was a time when there was no war or murder, no rape, no malice.  There was a time when love ruled as the golden rule.  And there was a time when mankind, in our freewill, decided to give God the middle finger and do things our way.  The world has been mucked up ever since. 

And so we choose to place the blame on God for the conditions we're all in - if we even believe He's there anymore - and in our freewill, our rebellion, we continue down the same dead end road of "do whatever you wish." 

There are two fathers:  1) The Heavenly Father - the Father of Lights (James 1:17) and 2) the father of lies (John 8:44).

Heaven is the residence of the Father of Lights; His children long to be with Him and He welcomes them in with opened arms in the form of a cross.

Hell was made for Satan: the adversary and enemy of God.  And by choice, the children of the father of lies - those who love not their true Father - are dying to reside there too.

Perhaps, instead of placing the blame on God and being mad at Him, we should be mad at mankind: Ourselves.  We've been reaping the hardships of our rebellion since mankind first turned away from the Truth.  Perhaps it's time for the prodigals to come home.  The Door to heaven is always opened for anyone who would knock.  Matthew 7:7 & 8, John 14:6

Who Am I?

I suppose I'm a bit like this guy named Paul, who once wrote: "The things I want to do - I don't do, and the things I don't want to do - I do." This guy, Paul, really struggled in life - He even said he was the "chief of sinners". He was also a follower of Christ. 

So, I guess I'm a bit like him: A "bad Christian" as opposed to a "good Christian," because we both struggle in life and are totally dependent upon a Savior. Try as hard as I might to be perfect, I'll never make the cut of the "elite" who have it all down pat. Some call me "hypocrite," some call me "sinner," some call me "guilty," but God calls me "son." And thank God: He is the only judge.

The Blog of Life...

Blogging is a bit like life: You have an opportunity to make a brief statement while just passing through.
