I was driving down the road today and saw a church sign that said, "With God's love the world could change". I have been thinking about that statement and I have come to the conclusion that, that church really doesn't understand what this world needs. The Bible already says, "For God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes on him, should not perish but have everlasting life." Maybe it was an error in what was actually put on that sign, but I think a more correct statement would be, " If the world would accept God's love it could change". God has already promised his love, and given us the gift of eternal life we just have to accept it. Barack Obama believes that logic should go before "religion", if religion is all you have then you have nothing to begin with. The bible says we should put God first, we are to love him with everything we have, our whole being. If you are doing that then it won't be a problem putting God first. Our president also has likened himself to Abraham Lincoln, I dare say he nothing like him. Lincoln was know for putting God first, he would not start a battle on the sabbath, he prayed in solitude to ask for wisdom. He was humble, when the civil war was won and the north was celebrating, they asked him for a celebratory song request and his request was. Dixie. His life exemplified Christ, we need to go back in the history of our country and our holiness heritage if we really want to get back to basics. So many are going to lose out because they think we need to be progressive and have a message that the world is comfortable with. We need no other message than the Bible, God's Holy Word. I just want others to relized that Jesus is all we need. He is our saviour, our comforter, our rock. He is everything.
