Many who claim unbelief in God continuously give the most ludicrous reasons for their unbelief.
Scripture teaches and Christ Jesus demonstrated to us a God who is good, compassionate, loving, forgiving, merciful, righteous, holy, full of power and authority. Yet, those who twist scripture to justify their own desires would have you believe that God is none of the things mentioned above – instead, they choose to ascribe malevolent characteristics to Him in order to reason against the reverence and worship of Him.
“The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” Psalm 145:8
“He [Jonah] prayed to the LORD, “Isn’t this what I said, LORD, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that You are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity.” Jonah 4:2
Even if God was none of the above and all the things these people say He is, they are still without excuse or reason for not worshipping or praising Him, simply because He IS God, and He made them.
God IS who He IS. He’s not who you wish Him to be!
God IS your Creator. You didn’t create Him, and neither did you create yourself or anything else for that matter. It’s not up to you to pick and choose in order to satisfy your foolish pride.
God IS your judge. Your stupid judgments of Him mean absolutely nothing.
So what if you don’t like the doctrine or idea of hell!
So what if you do not know or understand the reasoning behind God’s righteous judgments! Who are you to think that you can stand in judgment over the Supreme Judge of the Universe!
Who are you to label his righteous judgments as genocide. Is this your creation? Did you set the laws that govern both the spiritual and the natural in place? Can you even govern your own mind?
So what if you don’t understand how and why God does things.
So what God doesn’t conform to your ignorant standards!
He IS God and you are NOT! It’s not up to you to decide whether or not He’s worthy of praise and worship!
Know yourself and know your place in this universe.
“O Lord, I know that the path of [life of] a man is not in himself; It is not within [the limited ability of] man [even one at his best] to choose and direct his steps [in life].” Jeremiah 10:23
