It seems like most of the definitions of God on this website are negative. That is because none of the people who wrote those definitions know who God really is. Whenever they have a problem, they blame God. They see God as a self-centered being who does not care about the troubles of us, His children. That is because truly knowing God is actually quite difficult. So, a vast majority of people quit on God - God does not quit on them. And since a big chunk of the population does not believe in God, then all of their trend-following friends follow along in hating God for whatever foolish, selfish reasons. The truth is God is real. God is more than we will ever be able to understand of fathom, for that matter. For this reason, most people don't believe in God. "No being can be that amazingly awesome and cool!" they proclaim. However, He is! He is the Creator of the universe and everything in it. He has no beginning and no end. He is the King of all. Whether you want Him in your life or not, He's there because He loves you. He loves you because He is love. He loves all, even you - even if you hate Him or you don't believe that He is there. God is everywhere at once, and He is everything you will ever need. You can listen to my words of reason and truth, or continue in your ways. If you reject these words, you will, stand at the gates of Hell, and you will repent. You will be sorry. You may not want to follow and have faith in God. You may say, "I'll have fun here on Earth, and pay for it later." Well, to have fun for a few decades is not worth feeling the farthest emotion from fun for eons - for eternity in Hell. And, face it, if you become a true follower of Christ and a true servant - it won't hurt in the long run. You might as well do something with your small blink of an existance here on Earth. If you follow God with all your strength, soul, and mind, you will stand in front of the gates of Heaven and be ever thankful.
Thought you might enjoy this interesting prayer given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people.
When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:
"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of speech and _expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!"
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively. The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India Africa and Korea .
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, "The Rest of the Story," and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called "one nation under God."
If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends. "If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything."
Think about this: If you forward this prayer to everyone on your email list, or trenchmate list in less than 30 days it would be heard by the world. How many people in your address book will not receive this prayer....do you have the guts to pass it on? I just did
