A question has risen from a professing atheist: “Does God lie? The Bible says that God protects believers from harm, yet in all truth, they suffer like any other person. Therefore, God lies. If God lies, then there is no God.”
We have received so many marvelous comments on this topic! I beg you to read them, each and every one. Wonderful verification for our belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; amazing testimony of our faith and trust in almighty God. We all have answered the question posed by this person. Also we have solidified any loose strings we may have had ourselves. So again, our answer to the question is NO! God does not lie. But there is much more to this subject–read and study your Bible.
To sufficiently answer the posed question in a short blog would be impossible. And I won’t belabor the point here. The crux of the matter is do we have faith in something greater than ourselves, belief in a higher power, a book of words spoken by a being who calls itself, the I AM? We as Christians, affirmatively shout “YES!” Atheists poo poo the whole concept of a God of the living, a God period. To that, we lift their souls up to God and leave it in His hands. He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands, you know!
PS: It’s important to study and believe the beatitudes, for they dig deeply into the well of sufferings. One will find the true meaning behind our struggles here. It’s all about spiritual growth, preparing for the kingdom of heaven. We will find that the greater the growth, the greater the joy and wonders that await us in heaven. I plan to dwell on this on my next post.
Thank you all for educating and edifying one another in this gathering. Wonderful union, the family of God! 🙂
