This article could be used by those wishing to teach others and by individuals learning for themselves. There may be other scenarios of religious reality but this gets to the core of it.
Think about this a moment. Can you imagine anything worse than being eternally separated from God? Imagine an eternity of suffering and rejection away from the love and grace and joy and bliss of heaven. What tragedy is worse than rejecting forever the opportunity to live in a pain-free, tear-free environment where all past mistakes and sins are forgiven (Rev. 21:1–5)? Then have to live in God’s jail for eternity because did not choose Jesus or did nothing. That would be a self-inflicted tragedy.
Common sense and God’s inspired bible tells anyone that there can only be one all powerful God and that he has not created any other inferior gods to take away the love, devotion, and adoration He so richly deserves from His children.
The man made gods can do nothing more than that which man is capable of doing on his own. There are over 1200 different religions in the United States alone. How many does that make that are false religions with false teachers and false gods? All but “1”, the one that God sent His Son to begin.
Think about it for a minute! Long before any other god or religion was thought of, the living, loving God of Scripture was creating establishing and judging not only the people of the earth but setting up His rules of good behavior for them to live by. He has chastised some and caused the death of some of those who rebelled against Him for long periods in the past. God and His Son Jesus inspired all the 66 books of their inspired and inerrant Bible. He gave mankind the ability to think and learn, to provide for himself, and to pro-create. God gave man the right to make choices. God gave mankind every animal and every seed that is on this earth so His children and all of the animals could have multiple choices of things to eat. But most importantly God gave us His manna (His Word written in Bible form). Now, it is man’s time to learn and apply that which the God who made him and sustains him has set down. Those who rebel against the will of God will be judged for their rebellious choices and in God’s time be sent to the Lake of Burning Fire to live for eternity. Those who desire to follow God’s word and do not rebel and have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be kept and accepted as a child of God and will live with Him in His heaven for eternity.
Think about this: how many years do you have left to live on earth? How many years will you have to live in either God’s heaven or God’s hell during eternity? This is really “Religious Reality!!!
If you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please consider doing so soon. Not having God for eternity will be painful to the mind and to the body. Only God may offer any human being on earth the peace and tranquility that everyone would like to have in His heaven. However, you must accept Jesus Christ before you die or before God sends Him to gather all of God’s children. This includes those who die of sickness, all accidents and war.
This is what non-Christians and religions other than Christianity do not have. They do not have Jesus Christ (who is the power of God), who created the church, and gave Jews and Gentiles in His church the hope of glory. They do not have the love of Jesus Christ. But they could have it if they wanted it.
God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?
Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
Prayer: Father in heaven, hallowed is Thy Name. I praise You for Your Son and the Holy Spirit. I praise You for Your grace in sending us Your wisdom about “Religious Reality.” I praise You for Your caring, Your loving kindness, and Your generosity. Only Your graciousness and love could forgive the sins of mankind and still allow him to become a Son or daughter of Yours. Please bless those who have read this article for they too seek Your righteous truth, love, wisdom and understanding.
May God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights, our safety nets and our inspiration for loving ha in all of Your kingdom. Father into your hands I commend my spirit. Not my will, but yours be done. Please come Lord Jesus.
I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit,
