Are we All the Same to God?
July 28, 2023
I can remember for most of my life, I thought people that weren’t in our denomination (same religion as ours) were worldly and ungodly people because that’s what we were taught, and I believed what I was told. But is that a true statement? What does the Bible say about it?
Here are just a few examples of what the Bible does say regarding this matter;
"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart,…........... Ecclesiastes 3:11
We can see here that everyone has the world set in their hearts.
"For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not." Ecclesiastes 7:20
"Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?" Proverbs 20:9
We can see that there's no one here on earth, that is not a sinner, worldly or ungodly. We are all on the same level.
Peter said; "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:" Acts 10:34
"For there is no respect of persons with God." Romans 2:11
Both Peter and Paul said that God accepts any person; it does not matter what denomination a person is in, or how ungodly and worldly someone thinks that person is.
"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly." Romans 5:6
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
Jesus Christ died for ungodly/worldly people. Jesus said he came for the sinners, not the righteous.
God did have a special group of people at one time, the nation of Israel, but Israel is a fallen nation now (Romans 11:11) God doesn’t have any special nations or groups today. Now we all have to come to God as individuals.
Jesus Christ didn’t die to establish denominations. Jesus Christ died so that all men could be reconciled to God the Father.
"Even the righteousness of God which is by FAITH of Jesus Christ unto ALL and upon ALL THEM THAT BELIEVE: for there is no difference:" Romans 3:22
As we can see, being a part of a certain religion/denomination group has nothing to do with a person being reconciled unto God.
Gods will for today is this:
"Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." 1 Timothy 2:4
Let me close with this thought, if you haven’t already trusted in the shed blood, death, burial and resurrection of what Jesus Christ did on the cross for all your sins, please friend, do so today before it's too late. (It’s a FREE gift! Romans 5-6)
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
....... behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)" 2 Corinthians 6:2
"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise," Ephesians 1:13
