“Myths about God that Mislead Us”
Pastor Jamie Wright * MFC * April 10, 2005 AM
Myth # 1: God is UNFAIR! Col. 1:13NLT “…He has rescued us…”
“For God is not unfair. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other Christians, as you still do.” Hebrews 6:10NLT
Why does one person get healed and another dies? Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do good things happen to bad people?
Is God really unfair or is it a matter of our choices?
Myth # 2: God is UNFORGIVING! vs. 14 “…the forgiveness of sins.”
“The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against Him.” Daniel 9:9
Myth # 3: God is UNRECOGNIZABLE! vs. 15 “Christ is the visible image…”
