Do you know God?
Someone I had a conflict with made the following statement. It was in regards to a person going from a former biker to a drag queen.
“Natives believe God makes or changes men and woman for a purpose and that even if we do not understand it there is a purpose ! pray that our creator helps you to accept this person”
My reaction at first was to tell her she was full of crap.
But I want to examine what a statement like that really means. Because of my stand I was called legalistic.
God in His Word tells us that when people do certain things it’s considered an abomination. I realize that in todays society in many places everyone wants to ignore what His Word says, but it’s still there!
No where does it tell us to follow what God says until you don’t agree, then change what He means. What God tells us is that if we choose to ignore Him, we are separating ourselves from Him. I am someone who believes that the Bible is God’s complete guide to understanding Him. There are different forms of Blasphemy and when you say that He really doesn’t mean what He said, your saying He’s a liar. That none of it matters so we can make up our own rules. If God says it’s an abomination then that is what He means.
Does it mean we hunt people down and hurt them? No, it means we don’t condone or accept any behavior that is considered morally wrong or offensive to continue. Example: committing arson, murder, etc.
I have become so tired of seeing people who want to change God’s word because it’s easier than following what the creator says. The women who made that statement more or less let me know I didn’t really know God and I would answer for it one day.
But in all fairness I said this first. ” How dare you accuse God of changing someone to be wicked. People do it all by themselves, and if you think that is from God you don’t know Him”.
Please understand that it is possible to know God. But we can’t begin to know Him until we read His book.
