The idea of free will popped into my head when I read that and I thought, “I should rear end them and when they start freaking out I should just tell them that I am a messenger from the Lord and that God has chosen not to bless them because of their disobedience. “
Maybe they wouldn’t call the cops then.
All of that crap that people use to try and spread the “Gospel” makes me sick. It's just another example of people trying to control and manipulate others with the "God's gonna get you" mentality. I think God's going to get those people one day.
Years ago after having a very interesting and ”sinful” night in Athens, Georgia I had to drive back to Atlanta the next morning for some appointments. As I was driving I kept on seeing all of these ridiculous billboards, here’s an example:
I want to make a billboard that says “Stop judging everybody and go love your fucking neighbor.” - GodWhen I really think about the whole "Obey God and He will bless you " message, I realize that it's really selfish. Are these people only "obeying" God so He will bless them? Or do they actually love God. Maybe they're just fucking terrified of the man up stairs. What a horrible way to live regardless.
I'm going to go ahead and say these people are wrong because I have proof! By no means am I a perfect example and I'd have to say that I probably don't obey God the way the church would want me to, but for some reason He still chooses to bless me, my friends and my family. The funny part is, a lot of my friends don't even believe in God...
And if you disagree with me, you're wrong.
