The sins of others are easier to see than one’s own, so let me explain some of mine.
When I first became a Christian I thought that God knew everything and that He was in control. Well, I told myself that He did, but I did not know as much as I thought I did.
I was and am right about God, but I did not know or understand myself very well. I had not spent much time thinking about what God says in His Word, so I did not know much about either one of us.
I, like most new Christians, began to think that God chose me to change the world and make it a better place. It seems that way, because if everyone was a Christian the world “would” be a better place. However, as I gained a bit more understanding I came to the realization that if God wanted something changed He would change it and He certainly did not need my help.
So, you ask, what is it, that is my fault? If you live in the United States and you are aware of what the government is doing to the citizens and have thought about it, you can see that we have a Muslim President and it is his plan to destroy this Country.
Now, you may disagree with me about the President’s faith, because he claims to be a Christian. However, he has made the statement that Islam is a beautiful religion! No Christian could say that. Islam is a religion that denies the Son of God: A religion of death that has no Savior. There is nothing beautiful about that and anyone that makes that claim doesn’t know the first thing about Christianity.
So, again, you ask, what is it that is my fault? Well, as I thought about what God said, I see that He says, “The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Rom 13:1), but I have always been told that the people chose the president (authority). So because I did not understand I voted! I put my trust in man (the candidate) and myself (to have the ability to choose the right candidate). God says that we should not trust men. (Psa 146:3 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.) Now, I might have asked God to guide me, but the truth is that, if He did, I would have always voted for the winner, because that is the one God chose. That is if He had truly guided me, but I usually voted for the loser!
You see, if you believe what the world believes, then we have a Muslim President, because I did not vote and it is my fault! However, the truth is that we have a Muslim President, because the people wanted a man to guide them and wanted to choose that man themselves, therefore they deny the power of God to choose. I do not mean that they can stop God from choosing, but they show their lack of faith that God would choose the right man. Because of our lack of faith, we got what we deserved.
God calls us children and we act like children. Children that think we know more than our Father.
