NO GOD, NO PEACE – KNOW GOD, KNOW PEACE
In the midst of all the chaos that darkens our country these days, peace alludes us. We cry out for peace, well some do, but there is no peace. So what’s the problem?
Perhaps the problem lies in recognizing Truth. Because until we know what’s true, we won’t have peace. To go even further with this thought, rejecting Truth has a predictable outcome. And replacing Truth with a counterfeit truth leads to destruction.
I believe it all comes down to this. Our country started out recognizing that God is Truth. God’s record of Truth, the Bible, was the foundation upon which our country was established. However, since then we as a country have drifted from what we knew to be true. The rejection of God and His word produces predictable outcomes. The Bible records the consequences of a land who rejects God/Truth in Romans 1:18-32. It reads like a commentary on life in present day America
Our country’s rejection of God/Truth begs the question, “Why would we reject a truth that was proven to be true by the odds of ten to the 21st power (1021) There were over 300 fulfilled predictions regarding Christ in the Bible. This mathematical computation was based on only 8 of those predictions being true. Just ponder that for a moment!
As a nation, and even as an individual, if we genuinely desire peace then we MUST turn to and embrace the Author of Truth. We are in the throws of the consequences of rejecting God/Truth. What more will it take to wake us up?
