God Would Never Do That posted by John Sorensen on Mar 16, 2016
How often have you heard someone say, “God would never do that!”
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. I remember Dr. D. James Kennedy, the founder of EE, telling the story of reading to a woman from the Bible what God said He would do to the guilty and her response was, “Oh, my God would never do that!” After some effort to persuade her otherwise, he finally said, “Ma’am, you’re right. Your god would never do that. The problem is, your god doesn’t exist except in your own mind. You’ve created a god in your own image, according to your own liking, and now you have fallen down and worshiped him. And this is idolatry.” Now, it may seem harsh, but creating a god in our own image is one of the most prevalent sins of our day and we need to stress the true nature of God – not only that He’s loving and merciful but that He’s also righteous and just. I hope this will help you when sharing your faith. To watch a video that illustrates God’s nature, visit our website at ShareLife.today.
