Human God!!!

This New Year we talked about some few months ago has already reached its middle, but I still know that the year is loaded. 
So bring your friends along on the blog and let’s Reason Together. This time around looks like am going to talk much from the religious angle for a while ‘cause, there is a great need to start everything we do with God, fill our sub-conscious mind with the thoughts of God, doing things as he will wish us do’. Then after this am going to let you into a new dimension or series in our Checkpoint section, where I will dwell immensely on Mind Stimuli and fear. Exposing the mind’s most powerful stimuli and the acts of fear mentioning some areas where fear tries to set in into our good mind. After that, other things, health, comics, Novel for lessons section with Shakespeare.

Just bookmark and also subscribe to the blog via email and get glued to it. Don’t forget you can contact me ANYTIME via that email you see on that side bar or with the contact box down the blog page. 
So today’s post is asking me, you, him, her, ours and yours a very sensitive but salient question, Do we really need to pity God?
In the Holy Scriptures, in the book of Joshua when he (Joshua) was about to die in the last chapter, he called the children of Israel together. He gave them choices to make between serving God and serving Baal.

Let’s read Joshua 24>>
11 And ye went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.
 12 And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
 13 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
 14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
 16 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods.

The opportunity to choose was given to them. However we need to understand that man is a free moral agent, so even if Joshua would have detected to them which to choose, they are still humans and at liberty to choose to disobey the order and still serve whom they want to serve.

Now, before this time God had given them the Ten Commandments to follow. The commandments were there for them to follow, but they didn’t at first but served Baal. Reading the book of Judges you get to understand better.

Now the question, do they really need to serve God. Yes, they do. And the next question is ‘Why do they need to serve God?’ And the answer is not farfetched, ‘for their benefit’.
There is no need to ‘PITY’ God whatsoever in keeping to God’s commandment as some might think. This is because, there is no commandment given by God to man that has a single effect on Him. He remains God, whether you choose to obey or not. There are those that go about with ‘let me do this one for God’s sake, so that God won’t be angry’.

You want to pity God? Don’t.

Really, he gets angry not because of him but because of you. He loves you. He never seeks your harm. He wants you to be a good person.
Check this example, at Leviticus, God commanded some meat not to be eaten but in the book of Acts and Timothy the Bible admonishes that all meats are clean when prayed over. Why? Is that not contradictions?

No, not at all.

The commandment ‘Not to’ was given at that time to this people because there was nothing like hospital, medicine to treat different kinds of disease that might arise due to intake of some foods but later as time goes, there was improvements in science by the Greeks. So, side effects that might arise due to some food intake at that time could be taken care of.
So in your life as a Christian, are you trying to just make God not to be angry at you by cunningly obeying His words? Have a rethink!

Happy Soaring!!!
