What do you know?
But in this country we have a right to worship as we please. I may not like that thing you worship meaning that I will not persecute you for believing as you do. In my mind and my heart I may think that you are a part of a cult, that your thinking is flawed and that you have loss touch with reality but I will allow you to do what I believe is wrong. Even if it is my own child. And no matter how much it may hurt me emotionally and know matter how many tears it produce. I must let you practice what you believe.
You are not the first to reject the true. The absolute truth about a living God that is concerned and loves you despite the fact that you have turn your back on him. An example of a man that turn his back on God was Paul their are few of us who do not know Paul’s story and his conversion. If you are one that does not know Paul’s conversion story then this is what you should do. Read the conversion of Paul article on BibleGateway.com Acts 9 – IVP New Testament Commentaries . After reading this you will undersand something about God’s grace and mercy you will know if God can forgive Paul he most certainly can forgive us.
Another person you should know about is King David an Old Testament King that loved God and he committed many sins but God Grace was with him. Know something about King David.
I could have told you about these men and could have pointed them out in the Bible so you could have read about them there. But I believe that the first step to knowing about God is taking the time to finding information and looking for yourself. If you do this then and maybe then you will process the events that take place in the lives of others and examine yourself. For example David was so outraged by Nathan Story that he wanted the rich man to die, but what David heard was the truth about himself. And when we hear the truth and learn the truth we should not destroy the messenger. But we should embrace God with love for opening our eyes and repent of our weakness and sin so we can received God’s grace and mercy.
