Why Do We Refuse to Believe God and the Bible? Random Thoughts and Ramblings for My LORD Jesus Christ by Jerry May 19, 2014

Matthew 19:4-6 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.

Why do people not want to acknowledge what the Bible says?

I think there are several different reasons and I’ll start with the most popular.

People think that other people who go to church and that read the Bible are boring and that they [those who do not] are having so much fun that they don’t want those other people to ruin their fun.

The second one that I have could be said about the  Bible as a whole. I know that I have heard all of my life that Jesus is coming back, Jesus is coming back. I know that a lot of other people have heard that all of their lives, too. I think that a lot of people have quit believing and don’t think that what the Bible says is true, that its just a big fairy tale. But I want to say that the Bible is true, He is coming back, like a thief in the night!

The third one is like the Bible says – that men and women are so lost that they lust male after male and female after female. God didn’t make them that way but the sin and un-forgiveness in their heart has made them that way. 

But the good news is that we don’t have to live in sin anymore. God made a way of escape for us by sending His Son to die for our sins if we will repent and believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He did die for our sins. It’s as simple as that.

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.

    1. Hi, Kip, again – thanks for the heads up! I still don’t know how to change that only a preview is available – if you know where I can fix it, I’d love the info 🙂 Also, I did check to see in the Reader if I clicked on the “read full post” link if it would work. It appeared to, but, go figure…. We’re still new to this whole blogging thing so any advice is welcome!
      I checked out your blog and it read a post or two and will follow your blog – you’ve got some good stuff there! God bless you and your journey, brother!
      Sincerely, Angela
