Which Jesus Do You Follow?

I have heard said, “God is a loving God, He would never send someone to hell.”
Is this the God you follow? The Jesus you know?

A Jesus. A God who is loving and kind and a God who would never send someone to hell would never judge because he is so loving….

We have turned God into a “loving” God only. We’ve taken away the justice of God. The jealous God. The God that requires ALL of us. We have turned that God away from our:
  • Our politics – our government
  • Our religion
  • Our quality of life
  • Our sexual identity
  • Our very breath
God warns His people. He gives us directives to live by. But we pick and choose. We read that book and choose what we want to live with and ignore the other parts -  it is more comfortable to  for us.

How do you look at the Bible? 
  • Promises?
  • Prophesies?
  • Teachings?
  • Stories?
  • Warnings?
  • God’s Word as a whole complete book? As His infallible Word?
In only presenting God as love, we remove all fear of Him. We remove all Accountability. We present only a part of Him.
In a world that abuses love in every way:
  • By throwing it away
  • By perverting it into any “thing” we want it to be for pleasing self
  • By believing love is only sex
And then we present God as only a “Loving God” – so what is to be expected? We turn a “loving god” into anyone – into anything we want him to be. Then God becomes as perverted as our beliefs on love are.

We must present Jesus as our only answer and present Him in the Truth as it stands –  in the Bible.

To think His Word has changed throughout the years is not correct. It stood firm when He wrote it through men and it stands firm today.

2 Timothy 3:16 NIV
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
