“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
Genesis 1:1 ESV
I recently reflected on a quote that sticks deeply in my mind.
If you want to create your own rules, create your own Universe.
There are certain passages in the Bible that challenge my moral thinking. Wait a
minute. Have I created or the Creator? As the creator, do my judgments even
matter? Do I have the power to question God? Is God’s Word in the Bible to be
questioned, disputed, or challenged?
I have learned that when it comes from God’s Word, He is the creator so He is
always right. I am either hot or cold to Him as being lukewarm makes Him want
to spit me out of His mouth (Revelation 3: 15-16). There really isn't any mid-ground with
God. So, I take His Word at face value and embrace it regardless of
So, when people ask my opinion on hot topics like homosexuality, unmarried
sex, drug addiction, abortion, and the like, I simply refer them to scripture. I tell
them what I think doesn't matter. However, what God says through His Word
completely matters as He is the creator. Here's another reason why I love the
Bible. It actually frees me from so many hot questions. I just refer them to God.
So, next time you are questioning morality or being asked your opinion on a
moral question, use your trusty Bible to garner an answer. It will give you the truth
and reflect hard questions to God instead of yourself. God is the one who makes
the rules because He is the creator. If you don't agree, create your own Universe! by Kent Brosh a Kawaiaha’o Blog Contributor
