We all know there are different sides of a story, and that it is so very important to get all the information that you can to make sure you know as much as you can before making a decision. The problem is we don’t always do what is needed to make sure that we make that informed decision. We either just take what someone says and just run with it, or we read something written and just take it as truth rather doing more research to make sure we can make that informed decision.
This is n’t anything new. This was going on when Jesus Christ was teaching and certainly after Jesus went back to be with the Father. Some of the biggest arguments brought forth today are from people that have been given misinformation. Jesus never wanted people to be misinformed, He gave us everything that we needed to find the way to Him. The problem is people would rather just take what someone says rather than research it to make sure that it’s the truth.
It’s so easy for me to tell someone something and rather than for that person to go and do some research on the subject, they just start repeating it. Many people will tell you God doesn’t exist or that you don’t have to believe in Him to be ok or that as long as you don’t kill anyone you’re ok. Just because someone tells you something doesn’t mean that they are right. I even told you when I first started to post that I encourage you to go and look up what I say. Because the last thing that I want to ever do is to mislead people. You have to be willing to research things. You have to be willing to study and look deep into things, you can’t just take someone’s word for it.
1 John 4:1-6 puts it this way.
1Dear friends, do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us, but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
There are many things around this world that are trying their hardest to pull you away from God’s Love, and the sad thing is a lot of people are allowing it because of a slew of reasons. Satan is using many different tactics to get people to turn away from the Loving hand of God. The sad part is people are doing it because they are uninformed. The Lord tries everything that He can and gives every single person every opportunity there is to come to Him, to have that loving relationship with Him. All they have to do is believe. You have to be informed and the only way to do that is to open up His word and ask Him to show you His Love, to show you who He is. Jesus Loves you and wants to be with you. It’s all up to you to seek him out. He’s listening for you to call out to him and the moment that you do, He’ll be there. Don’t allow things in life to get in the way of your relationship with Him. Don’t allow people to get in the way by what they say to you or how they treat you. God is there for you. He’s listening for you to call out. His heart breaks when His children choose not to call out to him. He’s trying everything that He can to get hold of you. The question is, are you listening to Him or are you listening to the world? I pray that you will choose to listen to Him over the world. He offers life and life eternal. The world can only offer you moments, but those moments are temporary. Jesus wants to give you life and life for eternity. What the Lord gives, no man can take away.
