God Is Not A Killer
John 10:10 NASB 10 "The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.
Ted Turner, the founder of the CNN TV network, tells how he turned against Christianity because of bitterness against God in his younger days. After the death of a family member, the preacher told him that "God took them," and he became bitter over it.
Ted Turner is not alone. Millions of people are mad at God because they believe He has done something wrong -- which He has not!
God is not going around killing people, or stealing from them, or destroying their lives. That is the work of the devil.
God is not guilty!
The greatest deception in history has been the devil convincing people that the things he does are done by God. The devil wants us to believe that God acts like the devil.
But it is a lie!
Of course, to pull this deception off, the devil had to get preachers to spread his lies. No one would believe it if the devil personally preached it.
But just because someone who is called a preacher, a reverend, a pastor, a priest, a bishop, a prophet, or any other title, says something is true -- does not make it true. To find out the truth we need to go to the Bible and study it for ourselves.
Depending on so-called "experts" can lead you astray. Read and study the Bible for yourself.
JAMES 1:17 NLT 17 Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God above, who created all heaven's lights. Unlike them, he never changes or casts shifting shadows.
SAY THIS: Whatever is good comes from my God, Who never changes into being bad.
