In life we tend to avoid the hard and difficult questions that no one has an answer to. For example who is God? Where did he come from? Does God really care about us? Who is man? And what is truth?? We can spend countless hours and millions on research to try and find out the answer to these simple yet profound questions yet we would never get anywhere close to the answer. If we knew everything we wanted there would be no desire to learn about God because we already “know” everything. In this course my eyes have been opened to some really hard questions about my society and the world I am living in and it really, truly makes me think were do I fit in and am I trying to make a difference? Truth- (In the modern dictionary) - The true or actual state of a matter or conformity with fact or reality. Truth- (Bible) A proven sincerity, verity, honesty and righteousness. John 14:6 “I am the way, the Truth and the Light…” See the difference?? In the world view truth is whatever you want it to be, but to us Christians Truth as it clearly states is God. Now that would confuse anyone by just looking at it, but Jesus wouldn’t have said this if it meant nothing. Our society is so wrapped up in the fact of “I am a free person I can do what I want” and people are too afraid to think what might actually be out there that is bigger then us. This is scary because we are no longer in control and we tend to love being in control. Truth simply is God. No way around it straight forward, in your face if you want. I know for a fact God will be there for me and always has always has been. I think one reason society have some what an “issue” with God is because they cannot wrap their head around that an all consuming God up there in the sky somewhere knows everyone by name and loves everyone and everything! I mean im even so overwhelmed that my creator would care about little old Nicole!! Who is God? Now a typical response to that would be God is Truth…Right? But what is truth and why is God that? With one question more are asked!! How is that possible/ I think God doesn’t want us to know everything! I mean like in my first statement, if we knew EVERYTHING there would be no desire or purpose to drive us to get to know our amazing creator who watches over each and everyone of us! Without that purpose driven life we would just be ‘stuff’ in the universe floating around with nothing holding us solidly. What is right? What is wrong? To us Christians these are easy questions to answer, because in the Bible it states there what is the right thing to do and what is the wrong thing to do. But for people who are unaware of our amazing God they just go by on what they feel and what the government says all because it ‘feels’ right. If we all went by on what we felt was right and wrong well in essence there would be no right and wrong. The world would be just this muddle of list souls trying to find something to rely on, and I truly believe God knew this would happen and in a way ‘kept in touch with us’ His spirit was on earth in the old testament and in the new testament he sent His Holy Spirit to keep us with Him. He is just such an incredible God. We are all aware of the cosmic battle between man and sin is an everyday battle that each one of us faces. In Galatians 5:16-17 it says “I say then: Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do the things that you wish.” This one scripture just sums up most of what I have said. God wants us to stay on His path (Even though it is extremely hard) and fight against the flesh for when we do this we get to know our Creator, Best friend and God. Christianity is more then a religion it’s a relationship between man and his creator!! It’s a special bond God wants to have with us! But first we must learn how to do...
