In The Image Of God

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:27 BSB

The meaning of the word humanity comes from being made in the image of God. The word “image” does not reflect appearance—to physically look like God. However, we have the ability to express various emotions, creativity, authority over creation, the ability to create another human being by bringing together a husband and wife, to have compassion, love, construct objects, etc.

God created humanity to live forever, which is the spirit of men, but not the physical body we inhabit today because it has been infected with original sin. The person will live forever, either in heaven or in hell. It all depends on their choice, if they have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior or if they have rejected Him (John 3:16-18, Luke 16:19-31).

Our purpose was and continues to be to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ who created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1).

everyone called by My name and created for My glory, whom I have indeed formed and made.

Isaiah 43:7 BSB

You are precious in God’s eyes, and He created you for a purpose.

I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this very well.

Psalm 139:141 BSB

The Father wants you to believe in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ so that you won’t go to hell but be with Him in heaven forever.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and welcome you into My presence, so that you also may be where I am.

John 14:3 BSB

Don’t Drink Spiritual Water From Another Source

13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. 14 But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a fount of water springing up to eternal life.”

John 4:13-14 BSB

Jesus spoke to a woman—part Jew, part Gentile—who thought she and her ancestors were worshiping the true God (vs. 20). Jesus brought her back to reality and plainly told her that she had no clue who she was worshiping (vs. 22). The reason is that God’s Word (the truth) was given to the Jewish people to make a covenant and to build a strong relationship with them. But, the gift of God’s Word and God’s relationship with them wasn’t only for the Jews, but it was to bring about the Savior, who would open up the door to heaven (through the cross) for everyone, both Jews and Gentiles, who would believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior.

In verses 13-14, Jesus was teaching a spiritual reality with the water from Jacob’s well. Jesus told the Samaritan woman that if she drinks from that well, she will in no doubt get thirsty again. However, if she drinks from the water that Jesus gives, she will never get thirsty again.

The application is that if you drink water from another source like Islam, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, New Age religion, the Occult, Spiritualism, etc., other than from the truth, Jesus Christ, you won’t be able to obtain eternal life. Every other religion cannot satisfy one’s thirst for the truth. The truth about God and the afterlife—can only be known through the Scriptures. Any other spiritual source apart from the Scriptures will only bring you into deep darkness.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 14:6 BSB

No other spiritual water can quench your thirst by giving you eternal life. Jesus is the only one who paid the price for your sins. The price tag for sin was the death of a sinless life. Jesus, the righteous and sinless one, paid it in full. Don’t wait for tomorrow what you can do right now. Ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of all your sins and to save you, and He will (John 3:16-18).

When The Devil Agrees With Your Christianity

A satanist said: [Emphasis added for clarity]

“There is a wave of Christians, people that I have met on this app, and I have found favor among them. Progressive Christians are what the world needs right now. We both agree that religion needs massive amounts of change between your flawed Bibles asinine [stupid or silly] ideals and just outright misinformation. We’ve [the satanists] had enough. So, in a Lucifer gang, first I’m here to thank you Christians, progressive Christians, for your assistance [helping the devil accomplish his plans] in this fight against misinformation.”

A satanist praised the progressive Christian community for aligning themselves with Satan, the prince of darkness, without being aware. Those who adhere to progressive theology—thinking it’s from God—are not purposely believing in satanic teachings. However, through the enemy’s deception, their theology strays very far away from sound doctrine, what the Bible teaches, to satanic doctrines.

Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron. -1 Timothy 4:1-2 BSB

Here you have a worshiper of Satan thanking progressive Christians. If the devil thanks you, I know for sure that’s not a good thing, putting you in serious trouble, spiritually. You are in desperate need of evaluating your spiritual walk and what you believe in if you consider yourself a progressive Christian.

What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? -2 Corinthians 6:15 BSB

The word “Belial” refers to Satan, Strong’s Gr. #955.

What is a progressive Christian? It is a Christian who tries to integrate the culture with the Scriptures. That would include abortion, homosexuality, socialism, social justice [replacing it with biblical righteousness], rejecting the Bible’s inerrancy, etc.

What do you believe about God and the person of Jesus Christ? Are your beliefs biblical? There’s only one way to find out. Open up your Bible and see if what you believe to be true agrees with the Scriptures.
