I recently made a post on social media about Jesus being my Happy Juice! The post stemmed from a reel that depicted the difference between a person without Christ in their life and the person with Christ in their life.
For the most part, the post was liked (now upwards of over 600). But social media is an open forum for anyone to express anything, and so I do not get easily offended when my religious spiritual view attracts negativity. It’s my belief and I’m okay and understand when others don’t agree with me.
I have learned over the years not to take negativity personal when it comes to talking about my relationship and love of God. I’m not offended when people call me one of those Jesus freaks because mainly I am — I love me some Jesus and can’t get enough of him. Unfortunately, such people blindly believe they are attacking me personally when in reality — they are attacking the very deity of God.
When people don’t know the truth, because they have never heard it, you can’t get mad at them. We do God a disservice when we argue and debate his divine majesty with those who have no knowledge or chose to reject the concept of ONE GOD.
I understand this mindset. When people search for meaning in this life and how to emotionally, mentally & spiritually deal with the reality of a world filled with hurt, losses, and wickedness, they will grasp hold of what makes sense to their carnal minds.
God, the Creator, gets blamed a lot for the wickedness in the world when the reality is that MAN’s SIN NATURE is at the very CORE of the evils in the world. People don’t want to be ruled by a book they believe 1) was written by men, 2) is incomplete and missing other chapters, and 3) has been used as a tool to enslave people.
The unseen contradiction in these thought processes is that people don’t want to be told they have to follow anything that makes them look at their sin nature. People don’t want to sacrifice or give up their human nature rights to gain access to heaven. People believe they can govern themselves but don’t know their conscience is just a byproduct of the act of sin in the garden of Eden (from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil).
Instead, their expectation is that God MAKE PEOPLE ACT RIGHT and not allow sin to operate in our world. People want God to give everyone a free pass into heaven —he’s supposed to be a loving God, right? And here is the unseen contradiction of what they miss in their conscientious mindset — that’s exactly what God does — under the banner of FREE WILL!
This is what the scriptures call foolishness and Proverbs guides us on how to respond:
4 – Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
5 – Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit
A day is coming when the unseen contradiction will reveal its visible reality.
