Its tricky being a Christian these days.I don’t have answers for everything. There are so many issues facing us as individual Christians and the Christian church in this day and age, and I can’t say with 100% certainty that I KNOW what God’s stance would be on every issue. Some are crystal clear, some are murky. I just don’t know.
But I do know these things to be true:
- The Bible is the living, breathing Word of God. It is God-breathed, Holy Spirit inspired, and His merciful gift to us.
- That God is the same today, as He was yesterday, and will be tomorrow. The God of Abraham is the same God of today. He is unchanging.
- And because of that, God, like His word, is unable to evolve. God IS Love. He is PERFECT Love. Therefore He is incapable of evolving into more love. There is no room for God to love us any more than He already does.
- A lot of sins, including the very first sin, started because the question was asked. “Did God REALLY say that? Did He REALLY mean you can’t do that?” So when those questions start getting thrown around, I want to duck and cover.
“In Essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.”PS I’ll be back later tonight with my thoughts on Chapter 7 of the Sacred Marriage study.
