Also, God is not the creator of evil--the evil in this life is not because God wanted us to suffer. Evil is the absence of good--the absence of God. In this existence of free will, when people chose other than God and His ways, the absence of God creates the evil. For example, God's way is "Thou shall not murder." If somebody chooses the way that is not God's way and they murder--evil then occurs. We are actually a people that love justice when we see it here on earth, but for some reason, people don't want that same justice from God. If a mass murderer went to court and the judge said, "I'll let you off just because I feel like it" people would be outraged. We have a sense of justice--evil should be punished and should not be allowed to prevail. But when God acts in just ways, people say He is not being fair. Justice demands that evil and sin pay a price. But alas, even in His justice, God is merciful. For what did He do? He sent His son, Jesus, to pay that price for those guilty of sin and evil and he offers them not just a "way out" of sin but He offers a gift that actually transforms them--frees them from the bondage of sin and slavery to evil and empowers them to do good and live righteous lives.

As far as hell, it is the place set aside for those who of their own free will, made the decision that they did not want to have relationship with God through Jesus. It is the place of the "absence of God." If a person doesn't want to know God in this life, then why would they commit to an eternity of being with Him in heaven? Hell is a person's choice to say "no" to God's invitation of relationship with Him. But a reason it is so bad, isn't because of fire, if there is fire, but its because when people see God as He really is, they are sad and regret that they can't spend forever with God. What people miss, is that they often have a very skewed view of what God is like. They get their ideas from all kinds of places, but if people could really see what God is like, they would not say no. Not to a perfect God who loves perfectly and wants to bless unceasingly. God is the great reward of heaven--not the place, itself. Which is quite hard to imagine, by the way. If you think of the most extremely beautiful and perfect place, that is dull in comparison to how amazing heaven actually is--and that is dull in comparison to just being with God! This metaphor is lacking, but imagine being in relationship with the girl of your dreams--she's the perfect woman--literally--and in every way. And she is the most beautiful woman on earth--and she loves you. You could stare at her for hours--just being with her is all you need. You don't care if you are in a mansion or a tiny house--being with her is the gift. Small example of the awe and beauty of God.

It is mankind that creates slavery, not God. God did not create slavery, it was human beings. Jesus came to earth to embody God to show us what God is like. Jesus said that He and the Father were one--that if you have seen Jesus--you have seen the Father. Jesus got very mad at the religious people of His time. He told them that they made up all these religious rules and made the people like slaves. Jesus came to set the slaves free. An even deeper form of slavery was that people were enslaved to sin. No matter how hard they tired, they could not help but to sin. They were enslaved to sin and they were also enslaved to Satan. This is why Jesus came--to set all of creation free from this slavery. He was as a ransom and paid the debt for sin. He was as a Victor and defeated Satan and the Kingdom of Darkness. He did this so that people could be truly free. Each person has a free will to choose to respond to God's invitation or not. Those that do respond, acknowledge that they cannot "buy a ticket" to heaven or get there by good deeds. They know it is through the sacrifice of Jesus and by His gift of grace that they can have eternal life. Jesus came not to condemn the world, but to save it. And so those that receive this gift through Jesus, are reconciled to God. The relationship between man and God was broken by sin but Jesus is like the bridge that makes a connection. Worship is lifestyle. Religion can make worship seem like "have-to" and "ought" and "you better or else" kinds of tasks--but this is not God--this is once again, mankind. God desires relationship. When one encounters God, the response is automatic worship, God is so holy and "other" and awesome and beyond description. To worship is to love. It actually means "to attribute worth." God is worthy of worship because He is good--perfect. When I sing Him a song--that is worship. When I talk to Him (prayer), that is worship. When I laugh--that is worship. When I help a friend in need--that is an act of worship. When I write a story or draw a beautiful piece of artwork--that is worship. All I do, I do unto His glory because He is the creator of all that is good.

Ephesians 4: 31-32
Do not be bitter or angry or mad. Never shout angrily or say things to hurt others. Never do anything evil. Be kind and loving to each other just as God forgave you in Christ.

Why do we sleep through church, but stay awake through a 3 hour movie? Why is it hard to pray, but easy to curse? Why is it hard to post a religious bulletin, but easy to re-post the mean ones? Why can people worship a celebrity, but not God? Going to ignore this? Afraid to get laughed at? The Lord, himself, once said "If you deny me in front of your friends, I will deny you in front of my father. "Re-post if you're not afraid to show your love to Jesus.
