TOBI Says, Who is the God of the Bible?
gods. The Roman empire had Caesar but they also worshiped a variety of animals and gods. The Greeks were philosophers that liked to debate life and the afterlife, but they also had a long list of items to worship. They were intellectuals, who asked many good questions, but could never agree on any answers. Atheists like Hitler and Stalin tried to drive people to follow them, but it was soon evident that they just wanted power and control. Men like Confucius and Buddha looked for peace. But though their ideas were good, it was just a good list of things to do. In the United States, many men have started groups and led followers on a path to heaven. None have worked.
What is different about Jesus, and the God of the Bible? Two things are different. First, Jesus does not ask you to work your way to heaven. All the other belief systems expect you to do the work to please their god. Jesus did all the work for you when He died on the cross for you!
But the second part is even better. The Bible says that, “God Loves You!” No other group or leader does that. Imagine that, God cares about you. His love is not based on how good you are. It is because of His love. The world bases their love for people and things on their performance. God loves you either way. In fact, He knows that you will be bad, and He still loves you. In the Bible, that is called Grace.
I cannot explain grace, but you can find out for yourself if it is true. You must be willing to accept it as a free gift. Check it out today.
