Letter: Taking God's word as truth
In my 77 years, as I've looked to and fro I see something that alarms me.
There is a song that expresses these sentiments. "I love those dear hearts and gentle people in my home town. They read the Good Book from Fri till Mon, that's how the weekend goes."
What alarms me is that although people still read the Good Book, some do not take God's word as truth. They ignore God telling us, "I solemnly warn everyone who hears the prophetic words of this book: if any add anything to them, God will add to their punishment... and if any take anything away from the prophetic words of this book, God will take away from their share of the fruit of the tree of life and of the Holy City..." Rev. 22: 18-19.
I'll use abortion as an issue — there are some who think they know if an unborn child's life can amount to anything. I cannot even see to the end of the day; my life could end on Highway 23. Who can claim they know 20 years into the future? Could they have aborted the woman or man who would find the cure for cancer?
When did our people and some churches decide they know better than God?
Please give some time to think about these things.
