Hebrews 11:6 NIV
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

"God is too nice or loving to do such a judging or harsh thing"

What does God fearing mean?

Deut 8:6 So keep the commands of the Lord your God by walking in His ways and fearing Him.

Jn 9:31 We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He listens to him.

Acts 10:22 They said, “Cornelius, a centurion, an upright and God-fearing man, who has a good reputation with the whole Jewish nation, was divinely directed by a holy angel to call you to his house and to hear a message from you.”

An Unlikely Heroine

From Drawing Near by John MacArthur


By faith Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient, after she had welcomed the spies in peace" (Heb. 11:31).


Rahab illustrates the depth and breadth of God’s amazing grace.
Our final Old Testament hero of faith is an unlikely addition to the list. Not only was she a prostitute, she also was a Gentile—and a Canaanite at that.
The Canaanites were an idolatrous, barbaric, debauched people, infamous even among pagans for their immorality and cruelty. Yet in the midst of that exceedingly wicked society, Rahab came to faith in the God of Israel.

Joshua 2:9-11 records her confession of faith to the two men Joshua had sent into Jericho as spies: "I know that the Lord has given you the land, and that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And when we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath" (emphasis added).

Rahab demonstrated the genuineness of that profession by risking her life to hide the spies from the king of Jericho, who sought to capture them.
Because Rahab lied to protect the spies (vv. 4-5), some people question the validity of her faith. Surely genuine believers wouldn't lie like that—or would they? Abraham did. Sarah did. Isaac did. Jacob did. But the important thing to understand is that God honored their faith, not their deception.
As with all the heroes of faith before her, Rahab's faith wasn't perfect, nor was her knowledge of God's moral law. But because she trusted God, she was spared during Jericho's conquest, then given an even greater honor. She became the mother of Boaz, who married Ruth, the great-great-grandmother of David, thereby becoming an ancestor of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt. 1:5).

Yah yes- if there is a god why does he let there be so much pain and death in the world?

I would respond with- if god is righteous why is not all of humanity under condemnation for their sins? I’ll give you a hint, they are. This is the whole reason we need the work Christ did on the cross.

Apologetics / Is God is too nice or loving to judge or do something harsh?

I ran across this post on another board and thought I would like to see the thoughts from you guys (get this question all the time, "If God is so loving why doesn't He stop all the pain and starvation in the world?")

Quote from: MercyandFaith
I often hear this theology promoted by some people that "God is too nice or loving to do such a judging or harsh thing" (in reference to some form of judgement or harsh thing happening).


My question is:
Considering that God once ordered the Israelites to commit genocide of the Amalekites, and stated in Scripture that people will go to hell (or the lake of fire) should they die unsaved, and once ordered the Israelites to stone their rebellious sons to death.............How exactly can you say, "God is too nice or loving to judge or do something harsh?" If He's already shown Himself capable of ordering genocide, ordering parents to stone rebellious sons to death, etc., why COULDN'T He do something harsh or judgmental?

The rewards of liberation theology are here on earth, not in heaven.

Sad that politics have become a religion.

Bible Study / IF THE TREE IS GOOD THE FRUIT IS GOOD.

IF THE TREE IS GOOD THE FRUIT IS GOOD.


 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? "So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. By their fruits ye shall know them. (Matt. 7:16, 17, 20) If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be warmed and be filled," and yet you do not give them what is necessary for [their] body, what use is that? (James 2:15, 16 ) Say to the righteous that [it will go] well [with them], For they will eat the fruit of their actions.(Isa 3:10) Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; (1 John 3:7 ) Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. (James 3:11-13 ) Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. (1 Pet. 2:12 )  Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;  (2 Cor 9:10)  "Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; (Matt 3:8 ) Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. (Matt. 12:33 ) A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. (Matt. 12:35 )
