Morgan Freeman is doing a TV series on finding God. I find that amusing that a man who is an atheist is trying to show people how to find God. He is traveling all over the world looking at various religions to see where to find God. Why do I find it amusing?
We know there is a God. Just a study of what we know of this world and His creation is logical proof that things did not just spring into being, or some cataclysmic crash in space could not have brought about all the complex workings of our world and the flora and fauna in it. The human being is the most complex with all the systems in us from the smallest atoms to the largest organs, and how they are designed to work together.
So this leads us to find out who is the Master designer, Creator of all this beautiful complexity? Morgan's script says Quote: "Morgan seeks to discover who God is - and how he, she, or they have evolved over history."
Number one, our God did not evolve. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow~ He is GOD! He is the Alpha and the Omega. I wrote a book that walks through this discovery process that Morgan claims from his atheistic viewpoint to be searching out. My book helps people discover how to actually know and have relationship with the one true God. There is only ONE, you know. Or perhaps you have not yet discovered this, in which case, I invite you to read the book Cast Up A Highway. It is truth spoken simply and it is easy reading.
A few things we know about this one true God is ~ He does not sit in outer space as an uncaring observer. He created us to have a loving relationship with us that goes both ways. He is a Father who loves us all. We do not have to earn His love; He cares for us deeply and demonstrated this by sending His Son Jesus to earth to become a man. As a man He accomplished two things: First, Jesus taught us about our mutual Father God. Secondly, He redeemed us. From what? Sin.
God created us pure and sinless but with a free will. He wants us to love Him willingly not as robots. However, God has an enemy who goes by many names: the devil, satan, lucifer, father of lies, the great deceiver, destroyer, etc. The enemy hates God and all God’s creation, and that includes us. The enemy deceived Adam, first man and his wife Eve, into betraying God. As descendants of Adam and through his blood line we inherit this sin nature and all the the evil developed by their treasonous act.
Its pretty obvious by observing our world today that we have a sin nature. God, being all knowing, knew this would happen, so before He created us He had a plan of redemption for us. That plan was Jesus, and Jesus agreed to the plan, because of His great love for us. Jesus as man and God could pay the required debt for man’s betrayal of God, and the sins that proceeded from it. Jesus is the key. Innocent Jesus was cruelly tortured and murdered by agonizing crucifixion on a cross. He endured all this for us, because He knew it would free us from satanic enslavement. Yes the strangle hold of sin bondage was broken by this innocent man/God’s punishment. You see, it was actually punishment that we deserved for our sins, but Jesus paid the sin debt for us. So when we accept Jesus tremendous gift, we are freed from the devil’s tyranny in our lives. When we ask Jesus to be Lord of our lives, we are made new, as reborn to God’s nature. So our inclination is to love and be obedient to God’s laws, which were created in perfect justice and mercy, and are not to restrict us from fun, but to become the best, happiest people we are designed to be. God knows us completely. Since He loves us, He wants us to be full of joy (which is more complete than a temporal happiness). It is the reason He has laws in place~ so we can fulfill the potential He originally designed in us.
God is love. All the goodness and true love that we see in the world~ as a perfect example: Mother Theresa's love for the extreme poor~ all this love actually pours out of God into us to flow through us to others.
Stay tuned for more of the True God.
