I watched a video once of a group of Atheists tricking Christians to attempt to “open their eyes” to show how horrible God is. In reality the goal really seemed to just humilate these people and gain viewership in order to make money.
The trick was they told the unsuspecting Christians to read a verse from the Koran but in reality it was a verse from the Bible.
The wanted to show God in a horrible light. Many in the video were shocked by the truth.
I was very angry with the Atheists but then I realized God will take care of them. They’re just being foolish.
Forgive them Father for they don’t know what they’re doing.
Truth is shame on those Christians. They didn’t know the Word.
Shame on me. At the time I was just as ignorant as them if not more. I still have so much to learn.
And shame on me for even watching the video and giving them more views.
We must know the Word and understand it.
They were just taking selected verses out of context to manipulate scripture.
But aren’t us Christians guilty of that too? How often do we take a verse out of the Bible and run with it to fit an argument or belief? How often do you see a person take one verse and speculate on it to justify their own actions or beliefs?
You have to read the entire Bible. The whole Word and pray to understand it.
When someone tells me God is judgmental, cruel and unfair. I point out how he waited hundreds of years to punish nations who were immersed in sin. And all they needed to do was repent and He would have relented.
Try breaking one law and just tell the police that you’re sorry and see what happens. After you’re in jail, the same people that call God judgmental, cruel and unfair would tell you that you got what you deserved.
That’s just one example.
The Word of God is your armor, don’t leave yourself vunerable.
Remember satan quoted scripture to Jesus in the desert. Even the enemy knows the Word of God.
If you need a quick answer I would suggest Bible Study Tools.
For example, want a scripture on the immigration debate? See what God says by looking it up in the search and you will find out what the Bible says.
Easy just like that 30 verses about Immigration.
Are you up to the challenge to live in the Word? It won’t be easy. Many are so focused on changing others but reading the Bible might force you to change your own view points. Your views may differ from God’s.
Get in the Word and see what happens.
If you not only know God’s word but follow it, your life will be so fulfilled.
Have a blessed week,
