The law Of God Part Two
If someone violates instructions like hacking a computer or abusing the road traffic rules he exposes himself to risk, failure or even death. The inventor of a computer is not responsible for how a user follows his set guide lines from a book of instructions. In the same way God is not responsible for any failures for our problems, troubles, illness or death. He can not be blamed for evil in the world, shortcomings or anything else in society. Everything is a result of individual actions, effects and decisions which sometimes haunt us all our life like an incurable sexual disease or an unwanted pregnancy. There is also choices of those who have authority or power over us, God might have still been in charge if we had embraced his statutes from the start. The Father tried to nurture his children and warned about consequences all the time providing his Word and ministered his Spirit to guide us.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
“For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.”
1 Corinthians 13:9-12
“For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.”
If God did not care for his creation he would not have offered solutions. But his love is simple and he wants the fallen to return to him, in this basic way mankind recognizes mistakes made and accepts the currency proposed by God redeemed by Christ in the blood of Jesus because death requires death. God offered the sacrifice of his son as the only payment and the ultimate solution.
In the spiritual world Jesus is recognized as the biggest authority even by Satan. If you return to God you actually embrace the Father excepting you have learned lessons of life through personal experience. God wanted mankind to learn by obeying him, not through bad experiences that may even take our lives.
God would have been accused if he did not try to guide humans back into his loving family. He gave us a detailed map and many beautiful signs sending his Holy Spirit to shine a light home.
God could be accused of all evil in the world if we would have been made robots obeying orders without question, but he created mankind with a big intellectual capacity to be expressive and reflect his nature. If God forced his creation to accept mandate and values we would have no right to express human opinion. But God has given us the capacity of decision-making and responsible choice or free will. Freedom of choice is a fundamental condition of love and you cannot force someone to love you.
Logic prevails that if you try to make friends a sense of trust will build over time like God did with mankind and with other created beings. God would have been in a situation to be condemned if he gave choice but did not promote condition to make informed choices, So he created preconditions for knowledge and information producing conditions to express our views.
In addition the creator teaches through scripture:
2 “From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.”
But Satan is proposing another system of values, goodness, justice, beauty, truth, and happiness for mankind shrouded in lies. God with divine wisdom did something important which Satan will never ever do. The Lord could have been accused regarding his integrity and morality. When God commanded people to do something he leads by example how can he keep the laws he fashioned himself if he does not respect them.
The creator proved his integrity and righteousness seeming relentless, tough, merciless to some, yet Satan never accused him of being wrong proving he was right to condemn what is unrighteous demonstrating his love for creation. God asked for love but he also gave it without condition.
“Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity.”
