Does God Know What is Better For Us?
I hear many Christians tell that;
‘I cannot follow the commandments like He wills; you cannot follow the commandments like He wills. If we could, the Ten Commandments would still be the covenant by which our salvation was based.’
Why do Christians insult God like this?
This statement is in other words saying that God does not know us.
A physical doctor knows our insides and our limits,
A psychologist knows our mentality and our limits,
What do you think God knows?
God created us. And He is with us. God knows what we’re going to do before we do it. How in the World can someone claim that God gave us something to do that was beyond our capabilities? That is calling God unknowing or incapable to measure correctly, or unforseeing.
The modern Christians claim that the Laws are impossible, that the commandments of God are too difficult. This goes directly against what God in the Bible says about the Commandments.
In the Bible (Deuteronomy 30:11-18 [English-NIV]), we read;
“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it? Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.
For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long…”
God knows our limits and did not foolishly give us too much!
It is the Devil who causes some to be lazy and think that abstaining from certain things is too much and beyond our human capabilities.
God knows human capabilities, we do not. God gave humans commandments; it is not up to humans to say God gave too much.
Humans should be thankful that God even guides with righteous healthy laws. For example fasting:
“O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard (against evil).”
God knows our limits and does not over do it as Christians Complain. God does not want us to suffer and asks us to do things that help humanity as a whole. One of the many benefits of fasting is piety. Personally, when I fast, my sympathy for the poor is heightened. As a result, when ever (or most of the time) when I see a homeless person in the street in need of money, I give (with the statement “don’t buy beer with this”) I give because through the Fasting I empathize with this person and the suffering this man or woman is feeling. If everyone felt this suffering and could relate to the starving world wide, then this would help humanity as a whole.
I am not sure if this is right but I heard that someone starves to death every 3 seconds.
All those Billionaires, do they have piety, do they think God’s commandments are too much to follow?
