Dictators use the term “false news” to jail and execute journalists. Journalists risk their lives to speak the truth. Our constitution upholds freedom of speech as a right in this country. We need to protect our constitutional rights or we will end up like these other countries.
If we are to be made into his own image, then the question is:
“What IS his image?”
This is where the true battlefield lies. If God “appears” angry, and ready to kill as fast as some do and as fast as some want, it is because his image has been distorted due to propaganda, lies, untruths, and half truths. This false picture of God allows some to justify their hatred toward various groups in humanity, resulting in religion of the worst kind. A religion fueled by anger and self righteousness.
But Jesus said, “If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father.” John 14:9
“I only do what I see the Father doing.”
“Jesus sent about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil because God was with him.”
This is our mandate then: To be transformed into the very image of Jesus Christ in order to present the same love he had for lost humanity. Anything less, is missing the mark.
Get back to Jesus. Read what he said. Do what he did. Get back to simplicity and away from foolish arguments that use your time. Remember his commands to love your neighbor as yourself even as God has loved you. John 15:12
Lay at the feet of the devil all the pain that warped you as you were growing up through the hands of people. Ask the Lord to shine a light on your subconscious feelings that control you and make you do things you don’t understand. Give a name to the emotions He shows you and you will be free. It really is that simple.
“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.”
Darlin’ all the world’s vanity,
is more than I can take…
Darlin’ all His majesty,
is stealin’ me away
