Assurance Outweighs Insurance

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

I can't but think after reading the headlines past couple of days, of how thankful I am of God's perfect Word. No one can sue Him because His perfect Word doesn't agree with their personal lifestyle.  

God doesn't change. He is perfect. The idea of changing or omitting Gods word to fit today's generation is completely backwards. It is we who need change. That change can only come from our hearts through our accepting of God's son, Jesus Christ, and Him only. 

We can sue governing bodies and reword statutes to make us feel better but anything contrary to God's word is wrong/sin. 

I suggest that instead of accepting everything and everyone as good, we instead take a stand and compare it to God's standard. Until we do that, our world will continue to mire itself in its humanistic state. 

We all will have our day in court. Bottom line, God is right and we are wrong. I hope that before your day before the perfect counselor you will repent and turn from your ways and be cleansed/saved through the blood of His son, Jesus Christ. 

 You may respond with your rebuttals, all I'm saying is Gospel (Good News).

I, as all of the citizens of Hamilton ... (click for more)
