What is the ‘creature’ man ‘worships and obeys?
A ‘creature’ which means, ‘anything that ministers to man’s comforts’, so yes, man does turn from the God within to worship things that make him comfortable in this world. And yes man does ‘worship and serve‘ himself first.
The ‘truth’ is, we do worship the ‘creatures,’ our ‘desires’ of this world.
And what is the ‘truth’ of God?
The ‘truth’ is,
God is the ‘first and only‘ Creator/Cause.
The ‘truth’ is, without God, nothing is.
The ‘truth’ is God does not know evil, because He called EVERYTHING He made GOOD.
The ‘truth’ is, there is not evil…if God made ‘everything’ good.
So nothing can change any TRUTH of God into a lie.Period.
The ‘lie’ is,
God did not make all things.
The ‘lie’ is that God never made ‘everything’ all good.
And the ‘lie’ is, God will punish us if we disobey.
Why would God punish the man he called ‘very good?
The ‘lie’ is, God can be found in books, or religions, or through man. God can ONLY be found ‘within you.’
One of the biggest of all ‘lies’ is that evil is something real, caused by a devil, and God had no power or no desire to stop it .
The biggest ‘lie’ is, there is another cause beside God, and ‘it’ created evil. But how can this be true if God is the ‘first’ and ‘only’ Creator/Cause, and God created everything Good?
The ‘lie’ is we have to wait until we die to ‘see’ and ‘know’ God face to face.
It is a ‘lie’ because,
Are you trying to ‘turn the truth of God into a ‘lie’ by putting your creature ‘desires‘ first?
And isn’t that what we all do, satisfy our ‘desires.’ Just think about it.
That ‘truth’ is, there is only the ‘first’ God and HE alone will fill all your ‘desires,‘ and once God fulfills a ‘desire‘, you never have to have that ‘desire’ again, for whatever God gives, is forever.
And it’s only your ‘belief’ in another Cause than God, that keeps your ‘desires’ coming and going.
If you KNOW the ‘truth’ about you and God,
From all YOUR ‘desires.’
And you will no longer be a ‘creature’
You are NOT the ‘creature,‘ you are Gods perfect ‘image and likeness.‘
