So reading a little online today I ran across an article that really put this battle of good and evil into perspective for me as a Christian – http://tgrule.com/2013/04/20/is-pope-francis-laying-the-groundwork-for-a-one-world-religion/
Don’t know if he is a believer or not but I read the article and sat back and sighed, this is what my fellow Christians must have felt like when the naysayers were against them starting the church, or when others had them beaten or scorned or killed, the overwhelming feeling of how can I fight such large odds stacked against my every thought, my life, my values and everything I choose to believe. I can’t, but then I turn and find strength in the Bible and the words of MY GOD the one and TRUE GOD.
1 John 4:4
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.
I know that the Lord is great, that our Lord is greater than all gods.
And whether you choose to believe there is only ONE GOD, The creator of all things and HIS SON Jesus Christ, who died for our sins so that we may follow HIS way to the Father, and the Holy Spirit who abides in the believers or whether you believe in other false gods, things or maybe you don’t believe in any god, and only see science as an answer. I leave you with not only the thoughts above but also with this question, if you are right and I am wrong does anything happen to me? BUT on the same thing if I am right and you are wrong does anything happen to you? Yes, you will abide forever in the lake of fire, or hell. I for one would rather be a follower than to end up with no hope in a future away from the pain and suffering of this world. And for those of you that say heaven doesn’t exist, I will ask this of you prove to me that it doesn’t. Man’s brain is wonderful, and knows the theories and math, science behind things here but heaven is not here, so how can you tell me that it isn’t real. The most recent of these theories is the grand design, but there is no Designer mentioned in this theory. Yet they want me to believe that I ( a complex living, breathing, thinking, blob of chemicals just happen to be put together in just such a way that I am me and no one else, or anything else ) really do you see how that could not happen randomly. So to me there has to be a Creator, or Designer. I can see that my blogs are going to start taking on some new perspectives. Research underway. If this has perked your interest in any way I would be grateful for comments. But play nice or you will be deleted.
