The god of religion is not the same God in the Bible. Here are a few things that I was shocked to find out about God, that made me really love Him:

  1. He doesn’t really care what you eat (Eating KFC may shorten your life, but bigger issues are at hand) 1 Corinthians 10:31
  2. He isn’t obsessed with your money (I mean, He loves the poor and wants you to give, but He isn’t out to grab all your savings) – Luke 11:42
  3. He isn’t too impressed with all of the man-made laws either (like washing your hands, I mean that’s great, but He really cares about your heart ) – Colossians 2:8
  4. He knows that each person has sinned at some point in their life, even the Pope. (What a relief, thank God He made a way to forgive me) – Romans 3:23
  5. Instead of giving you a list of ways to change and become a better person, He wants to make you completely new.  (Whew, a new start is better than I bargained for) – 2 Corinthians 5:17
  6. He knows what it’s like to be a human, be tempted etc. and He has compassion on you while you are struggling and facing life – Hebrews 4:15
  7. He doesn’t expect you to live your life like a boring, blah, unpassionate, emotionless person– Luke 19:40
  8. He hates divorce, fornication, adultery and all these evil things that destroy families – 1 Corinthians 6:9
  9. You don’t have to be smart for Him to use you – 1 Corinthians 1:27
  10. When He says you are His child, He means it – Romans 8:17
  11. He cares about things like your relationships, your job, your school work, your family, your hair – Matthew 10:30
  12. He knows the world is in a mess:the government, Ebola, Insurance companies, so He just made a way that you can go to heaven instead. – Philippians 3:20

It seems to me that many people judge God without getting to know Him.

If you got to know Him you would really like Him. He is cooler than you think and thinks differently than you would think. He makes so much sense, scientists cannot argue with the stuff written in His Word. But, it’s up to you… will you give Him a chance, or go with what “they say.” How would you feel if people judged you based on what “they say?”
