Here are some lies people believe about God:
1. God Is Of Only One Denomination
Many of us feel that we own the truth. Splitting Christianity into so many denominations can divide people more than necessary. 2 John: 9 reads:
“Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.”
2. God Is A Prude
No, your sexuality is not dirty or gross as some Christians would have you believe. If you believe God created us, then he created us to have and want sex.
3. God Hates Us
This is just plain sad. John 3:16 reads:
“For God so loved the world.”
4. God Is Of My Political Party
This lie gets pretty popular around election times. Many Christians believe that God supports their political party. Spiritual concerns are not the same as political concerns. God doesn’t endorse any particular government constructs such as capitalism or communism.
5. God Is Religious
There is a difference between man-made religion and the teachings of God. The Pharisees, a group of teachers during Christ’s time, were very religious. Christ said this about them:
“They pile heavy burdens on people’s shoulders and won’t lift a finger to help. Everything they do is just to show off in front of others. They even make a big show of wearing Scripture verses on their foreheads and arms, and they wear big tassels for everyone to see. They love the best seats at banquets and the front seats in the meeting places. And when they are in the market, they like to have people greet them as their teachers.”
6. God Thinks Less Of Women
God doesn’t think less of women. We made women subordinate all on our own. When God told Eve man would rule over her, it was a prediction, not a curse. He knew people were going to subordinate other people.
