Chris232-----again, I understand what you're saying but just because a certain person or a certain religion who leads us towards God and then commits a terrible act doesn't mean that God is a bad God. Don't let someone else's or certain organization's downfall stop you from reaching out towards God. Too many times people will put their trust in a certain per or organization and if it wavers it crushes the people to the point where they don't follow God any longer---well, the question is: what was it that they were putting their faith into in the first place----a person?---an organization?---- a church?--- a religion? or God Almighty?
Look you guys; we both know we can go round and round on these things and I have to admit I always get sucked into it---I can't help it. I'm sure I will again at another time as well.
In a nutshell---There is a battle going on right now for the souls of men who're are still alive---YOUR soul!!! God's plan is that you become saved and have eternal life. Satan has a plan for your life too! A plan that stretches for as long as you are alive.....and he comes with many faces, and says there are many roads to heaven, but he's a liar and master of deception...He's already doomed to hell and wants to take as many as of us as he can with him and he will do anything he can to keep us from God and being saved. He's the bad boy and you can rock with him if you want and MOST don't even realize it. Probably one of satan's greatest accomplishments is that people don't even believe that he exists! Another one is that as long as you are a good person you will go to heaven....those are lies from what Jesus called the "father of lies"...the devil. God want's you saved and to have a relationship with Him for eternity! Who could ever love you like that??? Only God Almighty and that's Who Jesus really is.
