I got a reply on one of my recent devotions from a man who wrote that I was wrong for believing that a person is a fool just for simply believing there is no God. I don't generally respond to replies since they are just another person's opinion, and we all have opinions. But in that devotion, I did not write my opinion, I quoted the Bible. Psalm 14:1 says, "Only fools say in their hearts, 'There is no God'" The bottom line of the Bible is this: Do you accept Christ as Your savior? Just believing in God is not enough (actually, just believing in Jesus is not enough either). The Bible makes it clear in several passages that in order to be saved from Sin and to receive Eternal Life, one must make Jesus Christ Lord of their life. If somebody doesn't believe this, then what good is the Bible? I mean, if we are "allowed" to pick and choose what we accept as truth in the bible, then God's Word loses all validity. Whether we like it or not, we must accept the Truth, the WHOLE Truth, and nothing but the Truth. Jesus is the Truth! We can't break the Bible up into parts that we accept and parts that we don't. If we do that, then it simply becomes a guessing game. And I don't know about you, but I am a terrible guesser! Jesus is the Way, the whole Way, and nothing but the Way! Do you believe this?
Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me".
Father, I accept You as my Personal Savior. Remind me not to judge those who don't accept You, but please use me to help change their mind...and heart. In Jesus name, Amen.
