SERMON SHORT FOR January 31st, 2021
Luke 7:1-10, Micah 4:1-5, Psalm 133
Another entry in our “I’ve always wanted to hear a sermon about …”
“I would like to hear about non-believers and what God has planned for them.”
There have been billions of humans experience life on this planet. Will only a select few see eternal bliss and all the rest suffer in agony and punishment forever? How is that of any value to the creator? How can a god who plans this still claim to be a loving God?
I find in the Bible that God – the one with the authority to actually decide, is pretty open to everyone. Jesus’ message is of love, peace, unending forgiveness and joy. I cannot reconcile a God of love and a creator that condemns parts of creation to eternal torment.
In a contest between the two concepts – Love Wins.
