The book is God's word to man. You can get rid of the book but you still have the Great Pyramid of Giza telling you the same thing, you can get rid
of the Pyramid, and you'll still have the stars telling you the same story....you can't do anything about the stars....isn't it easier to keep the
Children trust....Jesus wants trust. How can you trust someone if you don't know them? Being good to people, living by the golden rule makes for a
nice world...but it don't get you to heaven.
Getting to know someone is how you develop relationships...if you ignore the book and just live by the golden rule you are living unto yourself not
God ! In Romans Paul speaks about asabeon...non-God-awareness, which God hates because the people who prefer to remain ignorant of the all powerful
God think that they're wise in their philosophies but they are actually morons, worshipping the created things rather that the creator.
People can't have their cake and eat it too, they want God on their terms. He must live up to their standards or they won't have Him at all. They
really don't believe that He is who He says He is or they sure wouldn't put Him on trial all the time. Yes He's a God of love but He is also a God
of hate. He is a God of peace and a God of wrath. He is a God of grace and a God of judgement. You can't disect Him and just keep the parts you like
and throw away the parts you don't like. He's the boss, He does the choosing, He does the throwing away. He doesn't mind people questioning Him,
but to disagree with His nature and His decisions and live in non-God-awareness one day too long and He'ss turn you over. He will remove from you the
God-receiver and you will no longer have the desire to know Him, you'll be eternally cut off from Him....see, He's the boss not us.
