Why God is NOT more tolerant than He used to be

This week we will continue with the “Lies About God”.

This week, Lie #2 – God is More Tolerant Than He Used To Be

I’m going to make this so clear, so plain, so down to earth that even a child can understand it.

Point 1: 1 + 2 = 3

Do you SEE this?

Do you UNDERSTAND this?

Do you BELIEVE this?

Really does not matter whether you believe it or not

IT IS TRUE!!!!!!

You can choose not to believe it

You can tell others it is not true

You can believe 1+2=4

You can reject 1+2=3

BUT 1+2=3 Does now… did yesterday… will tomorrow.

It is mathematically impossible for 1+2 to equal anything except 3.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?????

POINT 2 The wages of sin is death

Do you understand that?

DON”T ANSWER YET!!!!

WHY??? Why are the wages of sin death?

“Because God said so.” WRONG!

It was true BEFORE God said so…. It is an eternal law

Why is it true…… follow me!

Sin + Holiness = WRATH/Punishment/death

Do you see that?

Do you understand that?

Do you believe that?

IT IS TRUE

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

YOU CAN’T CHANGE IT

The only way to change the result of the equation is to change one of the parts of the equation.

If you change the 1… or the 2, then the 3 will automatically change.

If the 1 becomes 4, the 3 becomes 6

In the biblical equation, sin + Holiness = Wrath…. If you can change the sin or the holiness, the wrath will change.

Can we change the sin?

NO!!!!!

All have sinned…. You can’t change that.

You can say you have not sinned

You may believe you have not sinned

Others may help you accept you have not sinned

YOU HAVE SINNED……. ALL have sinned.

All= every created being with a free will who have lived long enough and has sufficient ability to understand the choice = people… ALL PEOPLE

YOU can’t change the all.

Sin- many want to change sin by calling it something else

Mistake, shortcoming, personality flaw, misunderstanding, moment of weakness, etc

Some want to change it by reducing it…. Deciding it is not a sin.

BUT YOU CAN NOT CHANGE SIN

SIN IS SIN

ALL HAVE SINNED

Just like with the mathematical equation where you could not change the 3, you could not make it more or less….

You can not change the WRATH…. The wages of sin

You can deny it… choose not to believe it, rationalize it away, deem it unfair, condemn it as barbaric, pronounce it unloving.

The only thing left to do is to change the Holiness.

1 + 2 = 3 You can’t change the 3 You can’t change the wrath

You can’t change the 1 You can’t change the sin

The only thing left is the change the 2 THE HOLINESS

THE ONLY WAY GOD CAN BECOME MORE TOLERANT IS TO BECOME LESS HOLY!!!!!

Here is the big question…. Is God less holy today than he was in Moses’ day? NO

Is God less holy today than he was in Adam’s day? NO

Is God less holy today than he was in eternity before any creation? NO

Is God MORE holy today than in Moses’ day? NO

God IS NOT…. CAN NOT BE more or less holy than before.
