Even though God created mankind, He and man will always see things differently. For example, man is always fighting over skin color and nationality, whereas God said that doesn’t matter (Acts 10:34-35; 1 Samuel 16:7). Men will not think favorably toward a church that has only a few members; but God doesn’t see it that way (Matthew 18:20, 7:14). Man thinks that if he does a portion of what God said and leaves the rest undone, that the Lord should be pleased; but God won’t be (Matt. 7:21-27; 1 Sam. 15:1-23). Man thinks he can redefine marriage with the same sex, but God who is the Creator of marriage, disagrees (Gen 2:18, 21-25; Proverbs 18:22; 1 Corinthians 7:1-4, 11:8-9; Matt. 19:4-6).
Man believes he can worship God as he pleases, but God said men must worship Him in spirit and truth (John 4:24; Romans 12:11; John 17:17). Men think they can divorce and remarry for any reason, but God said fornication is the only reason (Matt. 19:9). Man thinks it is okay to have sex outside marriage but God doesn’t (Hebrews 13:4). Man calls correction “judging,” whereas God calls the action warning a lost soul (Jude 21-23). I shall now cease to give examples because man doesn’t have a heaven to give you or a Hell to send you to. Peter said, “it is best to obey God and not men” (Acts 5:29).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
