Genesis – including the creation account – was written by Moses. It was the beginning. If we don’t believe it, then we’re calling it a lie. And once we begin to call God a liar, how can we all of a sudden claim to believe anything at all that He says? If we can’t accept the things are are plainly visible, how can we begin to accept the things that aren’t visible at all – let alone the things that will happen in the future?
So – what we end up with is a whole bunch of Christian denominations arguing over whose version is correct (and also first – even though none of these denominations (obviously) existed back in Moses’ time! They take their focus off the main thing (God) and appear to non-church people like everything they stand for is just made by man and doesn’t really mean anything.
But – what if the situation is entirely from within ourselves?
What if something happens in our own little “world” – with no influence from outside – really messes up everything we thought we believed in? What happens when we’re left only asking God – “Why”?
We keep asking. We keep getting silence. We reach a point where it’s just too much.
You know how when you read those parts of the Bible you tend to skip over them? You probably just skipped it now. … if they are mentioned again, it probably says something about their heritage anyway. And failing that – if you really want to know who someone was, just Google them. What’s the big deal?
Oh – by the way – that forgiveness thing. It’s good for anything we have done. Literally – anything. There’s nothing, no matter what some may say, that won’t be forgiven. Some would say if you’ve done certain things – you can’t be in “the church”. Well – maybe not in their “church”. But in Jesus’ church – sincerely ask for forgiveness from Jesus – and you will be forgiven.
