God Killed A lot of People. Here’s Why We Can Still Trust Him

In the Old Testament God had many people killed. Men, women, kids, homosexuals….He oftentimes spared no one. Examples:

THE FLOOD – God wipes out nearly all of humanity, sparing only Noah, and his family.

SODOM AND GOMORRAH – Genesis chapter 18 records the Lord and two angels coming to speak with Abraham. The story ends with an entire city wiped out and burned up.

THE AMALELITES – 1 SAMUAL 15:3 God says “Go and attack the Amalekites! Destroy them and all their possessions. Don’t have any pity. Kill their men, womenchildren, and even their babies.

Can we trust the Old Testament God? We can if we understand Him through the lens of the New Testament God. Same God, only we see the story unfold as we see God’s heart is to save all of humanity.

What if not killing these people resulted in 100% of humanity perishing forever? Would you prefer that a few died, so that MANY would live forever, and prefer that all of humanity lived a short earthly life yet had no hope, and beyond roughly 75 years?

Watch the above video and you decide.

Mike Cynar was raised in a church setting where he frequently noticed that many attendees would eventually drift away. The church labeled these individuals as ‘back sliders’ or ‘fake Christians’ just looking for ‘fire insurance’. However, Mike realized the issue was rarely with these individuals but instead with the church’s message itself. The teachings heavily emphasized behavior improvement and one’s flaws, with only a fleeting mention of one’s identity in Christ. It felt as though every sermon was tailored to the church of Corinth, who as we know or committing sins that even unbelievers don’t partake in. This trend was noticeable not just in one denomination, but across Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal, and many other churches. Upon understanding the true essence of the gospel – that our righteousness comes from Jesus’ actions, not our own – Mike was inspired to liberate believers from lifeless sermons and reconnect them with the genuine teachings of Jesus. He believes that one can nurture a vibrant and growing bond with Jesus, unhindered by rigid religious practices. And thus, “Jesus Without Religion” was born.

It turns out that it is grace that leads to repentance. And if our heart is to get others to walk in the Spirit and live a godly life, then the best approach is not a beat down sermon, but rather to remind other that it is only when we understand our true identity in Christ that we will live it out. Yes, it’s true, if you’re convinced that God thinks you’re a dirty sinner, you will ultimately continue a lifestyle that mirrors that view, but if you truly believe that even on your worst day, you are called holy, sanctified, justified, and will be presented blameless in the end, well, it turns out this is the secret to living out on the outside what has been worked in to the inside.
