If God is love then why did He tell the children of Israel, “Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man” (Numbers 31:17). This verse along with many other verses out of the Old and New Testament atheist use to supplant the love of God for their own misguided interpretation. Furthermore, they have concluded that all religions are evil being the cause of numerous wars and atrocities inflicted upon their fellow man. Then atheists typically conclude their argument by stating if God is love then why does He allow all the evil in the world. As we near the end of time atheists have become arrogantly emboldened while most believers remain silent. I often wonder if this silence is caused by fear or the believer’s lack of biblical knowledge. Let’s remember dear children that He who is in us is stronger than he who is in the world. (See I John 4:4) It’s past time to take our stand against the foolishness of this world by wielding the sword of the Spirit with all truth from His anointed Word.
Dear friends, I make no apology for believing in the Word of God as both authoritative and sufficient for all of life and godliness. I am a Bible believing preacher because I am convinced that it changes lives. I have seen it happen in my own life and I have also seen it happen in the lives of others. It is a great joy to see people saved. It is even a greater joy to see them grow in their spiritual walk with the Lord.
His Powerful Word is all we need for Life and Godliness (v3)
The church lives in the age of information and worldly wisdom. She has drifted away from preaching God’s Word alone. It is no longer seen as sufficient to meet the needs of modern man. God’s divine power is all we need for life and godliness. This is the same power that created the universe and everything in it. It is the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the grave. It is the same power that brings life to those who are dead in their trespasses and sins. But how do we get this power?
