Romans 12 verses 1and 2. Paul an apostle of Jesus Christ worte to the churches while he was in prison:
I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God; and so on.
Unfortunately, people are rejecting God’s command and end up trying to appease God in any way apart from His way. I have seen on TV that some people are beating themselves until blood gushed out of their bodies to appease their god. Others gather themselves in extra large crowds to worship their god in so called holy places. Others accept poverty and whatever suffering come to them as what their god ordained for them and several more rituals and beliefs others perform to appease their gods.
Friends: I want to remind you once more the real “God is not mocked”. There is no way the creator of the world will bend to suit any man. It is man to siut Him and He has made provision whereby man can be connected to Him.
The God who created the universe is Love. If people use the brain that they were given at birth and think properly, they must be able to question the agenda of their religious establishments. They must be able to feel that there is no love in following their futile religion and no matter what they do they are still feeling empty.
People could live in only one of two ways on earth. Right or wrong. (Righteous or unrighteous).
God who created the earth is not able to have unrighteous people in His Kingdom hence His provision of cleansing for our sins. A phenomenon in all human beings. Not one of us is sinless, hence for any of us to get to God, we must go through the cleansing Blood of Jesus Christ. God on earth in a human body. We must be able to humble ourselves, acknowledge our sins and REPENT, resulting in transformation and renewing of our minds as Paul has suggested.
A Holy God cannot tolerate SIN therefore He has no choice but to destroy SIN. He hates to see suffering and death but is unable to do anything about it because He gave man a freewill to choose their destiny. Hell or Heaven. He gave man a book of guidance, as well as His Spirit. There is nothing more he can do, it is up to man to determine his destination.
As a fellowman I am going to urge you to let go of your earthly views and seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and surprise yourself of the blessings you get when you follow Him.
