For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. Heb 4:2
Years ago a coworker told me that when he stood before God, they’d both share a beer, talk about things, and all would be okay.
Someone on Facebook recently reminded me about this when I read a similar status about meeting God but until then he would do whatever he wanted and enjoy this life.
It’s strange how so many sit in church, hear the same message, and walk away with different thoughts and ideas.
When I sat in math class all of us learned the Pythagoras theorem – that among the three sides of a right triangle the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. It is written as a²+b²=c².
No one called it the Galileo Theorem or the Newton Theorem.
We did not change it to c²/b²=a² and say, “it’ll turn out okay!”
Math has basic characteristics that cannot change. Two plus two equals four and never equals anything else!
So what makes so many believe that God allows us to alter and change His word?
I do not understand all the different ways of math and I recently watched the moved Hidden Figures, about the first black women at NASA. I did not understand the math used but by faith I accept the women (and men) did! After all, they did send John Glenn into space.
The engineers did not stop there. Within the same decade new equations put Neil Armstrong’s footprints on the moon.
Perhaps you don’t understand all about the Bible. By faith you accept that it is true and you never stop learning and you never change His word or His math – the God Theorem: 1 cross + 3 nails = 4given!
