The Creator More than 2/3rds of the world believes that there is a Creator… An entity that Created us including what we see above us, below us, around us … and as much as currently available technology enables man to see, feel or imagine… was created by the Creator. In English language we refer to that power as GOD.
GOD Just an English word… It refers to an awesome incomprehensible power… that is also the very embodiment of Goodness.
Since the late 20 th Century we have searched for life forms in the other planets of our solar system. UPTO NOW WE HAVE FOUND NO TRACE OF LIFE…! But if you take a sq. meter of soil from anywhere on Earth and you will find hundreds of life forms within it. In all good faith god created the Earth and gave humanity a place to live, let live and increase in number… THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE FILLED PLANET… Genesis 1 :28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground
BUT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING… INSTEAD OF LIVING IN ACCORDANCE TO GOD’S PLAN WE WENT AGAINST HIS PLAN… "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. 5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil”. Genesis 3: 4 - 5 THE VERY FIRST TEMPTATION… “… YOU CAN BE LIKE THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU…” … and humanity succumbed!
Oh yes.. WE CHANGED ALL THAT by diving headfirst in to Sin and by embracing the power of Darkness over the power of Light….! Gods’ plan was for us to live in absolute harmony…as AN ETERNAL BEING!
Greed… selfishness… Jealousy… Anger… Vengeance… Vice… Corruption… Deceit… has taken hold of us with a vice grip and Evil has become the way of the world. Traits of living in Darkness Traits of living in the Light Love… Selflessness… Forgiveness… Truthfulness… Caring… Sharing… Helpfulness… Honesty… Rarely seen or non existent today. WHAT DO YOU SEE MORE OF TODAY…?
The world has embraced Evil and Sin… Take a look back to our history and also around you – this present time in the 21 st century… You will see that our history, the present times - (and probably the foreseeable future) - plagued with EVIL & SIN. A humanity driven by Greed… war…anger… jealousy… vengeance… mass killing... Debauchery… Kings and Leaders who govern countries living in depravity…misusing the power that God has placed in them…most of them even resorting to carryout genocide and other acts of pure evil against fellow mankind.
Everyone wants more and more…we are never satisfied… We seek more and driven to seek more and more money and what comes with it. Getting more than what we need is NOT ALWAYS DONE THROUGH MEANS OF GOODNESS - if at all VE RY RARELY. These excesses are obtained MOSTLY through means that are OPPOSED TO GODS DIRECTIVES FOR MANKIND… RESULT = SIN & EVIL WIDESPREAD AND RAMPANT… Human activities are filled with Evil and totally OPPOSED TO GODS DIRECTIVES FOR MANKIND…
LOOK WHAT IT HAS BROUGHT US TO… Famine…Global warming… Environmental destruction…depletion of natural resources… pollution… habitat loss… climate change… A WORLD HEADING TOWARDS DESTRUCTION Greed Selfishness Evil Corruption
Humanity is embroiled in Evil and Sin … and as a result the world is going down a superhighway of destruction… The unfortunate thing is that THE WORLD that God created for Man will survive… But life as we know it will not be able to survive and soon MAN will be an extinct species that once lived on the earth!
The Unfortunate thing is that we as a humanity could have avoided this destruction had we formed our lives in accordance to Gods directives for humanity. The Good news is that as Christians we can be the beginning of the change… to bring Love, Compassion and Co-existence back to this vicious world!
Jesus summed all of Gods directives to two requirements… MATTHEW 22: 40 “ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments .”
MATTHEW 22: 37 -38 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. LOVE YOUR GOD ABSOLUTELY !
Matthew 22: 39 - 40 And the second is like it: ‘ Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments .”
If we followed these two very vital commandments would the world have come to what it is today?
MATTHEW 22: 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ Consider this… Love your God... Live a life in keeping with God’s Directives. In other words adjust your life to steadfastly live in keeping with the ten commandments
Jesus added this additional directive... He said Love your neighbour as yourself... The basis of living a righteous life filled with goodness... Love your neighbour... Live in Goodness...surrounded by goodness
Love your neighbour... Live in Goodness...surrounded by goodness If Christians lived in harmony and with love for one another, can there be Anger, Hatred, Jealousy, Vengeance, Greed, Killing, Destruction, War In the world today…
Since ancient times and right up to the present, humanity has chosen to live in-keeping with the Negative traits of the dark forces rather than live in the Light(making Gods directives our priority and lifestyle). Because we don’t fulfil this very important directive from Jesus and choose to live as name sake Christians, we see more of what we should not… EVIL and DARKNESS and a World on a fast track to hell.
If Christians lived in harmony and with love for one another CAN THERE BE: Anger, Hatred, Jealousy, Vengeance, Greed, Disregard, Destruction, War In the world today…
Because we don’t follow this vital directive given by Jesus and live as name sake Christians we see more of what we should not…A WORLD FULL OF EVIL & SIN … when God wanted us to have a world full of love compassion and co-existence
Around 2,000 years ago Jesus Christ - whom we believe in as Christians of every denomination - brought us a message of salvation. The most unfortunate thing is that even after 2000 years we still DON’T LISTEN TO THIS MESSAGE that Jesus brought to us.
