How do you view God.

Under Law living instituted in the pre-cross era, people's view of God was a God to be feared, served and obeyed or suffer the consequences.

Under Grace living instituted in the post-cross era, God's presentation of Himself to people is a God of love to be loved, cherished and befriended.

Jesus didn't come to earth to be served, He came as the express image of His Father, He came to have friends and to make sons and daughters, He desirers relationship and friendship not servitude or to be feared or to make His Father out to be feared.

  1. VAIN ATTEMPTS TO DISCREDIT GOD'S WORD ABOUT SALVATION

    Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (NKJV)

    Critics claim that since Jesus did not say he who is not baptized will be condemned; therefore water baptism is not essential to be saved. If a heart surgeon told you that if you have a heart transplant you will live; he would not have to explain to you that if you refuse the heart transplant you will die. Negatives are understood. If the electric power company informs you if you pay your bill the power will be turned back on; you do not have to be informed that if you do not pay your overdue bill the power will not be restored. Negatives are understood.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

    The apostle Peter did not have to say unless you repent and are baptized your sins will not be forgiven. Negatives are understood.
