Yet isn’t God a God of Love? Let’s look at this closer. 1 Corinthians 13 is commonly known as the Love chapter, so let’s examine this chapter a little closer:
“13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, …”
God, who is a God of love, does NOT rejoice in iniquity, nor does He think evil, so where does that leave us? Read more…
Why is Hell Real?
Hell is real simply because God is real. God is Holy, Just and Righteous and He cannot allow sin, and thus sinners, into Heaven. God even goes farther though and says that He must punish sin. Hell is a natural consequence of the universe. It is the natural consequence of being made in God’s image and then in being eternally separated from God.
Hell has been described as separation from God. While this is true is doesn’t go far enough to describe Hell since it doesn’t go far enough to describe God. We were made in God’s image and we were made to worship, love and have a relationship with God. This is so much a part of our core nature that being without God is Hell. How is this so?
God is the God of all comfort. Hell is eternal torment. God is the Living Water. Hell is a place where the thirst is never quenched and is describe as a lake of fire. Read more…
Why was Jesus’ stance for women radical for it’s time? What did Jesus do to further the cause for Women and overturn stereotypes.
Part 2: God treats Women and all people with dignity
Scripture gives dignity to all types of workers, men and women, not elevating any honest profession above another. David was a shepherd and a king. Luke was a doctor. Lydia was a retailer of purple fabric. Daniel was a government worker. Paul was a tentmaker. Mary was a homemaker. And finally the Lord was a carpenter. Read more…
So Hell is real and is a bad place, but wouldn’t it be just as bad to go to Heaven where all they do is sit on clouds and play harps? The answer to that question is an emphatic NO! God create the world, all you see and can’t see in the universe, in seven days. Imagine then what it will be like to spend an eternity with Him. There would be new wonders everyday. Jesus put it this way,
John 14:2, “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
Jesus spent just seven days creating the universe, but He’s been in Heaven now 2,000 years creating mansions for us. Then just imagine how magnificent these mansions will be. We can’t. We can’t image that, but it’ll be mind blowing when we get there. Read more…
Blood in the Bible
Why is blood important, especially as it pertains to Jesus shedding His blood on the cross? What was with the Old Testament sacrifices? Why don’t they do sacrifices anymore? Have you ever heard anyone say that, “I am saved by the blood of Jesus?” We’ll discuss what that means and more specifically why it could be important to you.
