“15 See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16 For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, 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.”
God doesn’t hate, and there is right and wrong. Imagine if there was no right and wrong. Chaos. There’s no other end possible in reality. In theory maybe, if we humans all act with a common interest, if we all have common boundaries that we naturally agree to, if we all see things the same way, if we all have each others well-being as per first priority. That isn’t the world we live in though. We are diverse, we have conflicting interests, we don’t have common boundaries.
God can tell nothing to become a universe and it does, tell a mountain to move and it does, but when He tell us to do something we say no – and He let’s us! That points to the special place we have with Him, add well as the gift of free will.
The challenge is that we will be held accountable some day. We have the information available to learn the path He wants us to take, how’s we should live in the world, and we choose to believe it’s not really there. It’s like gravity. It doesn’t matter what someone believes about gravity. Someone can sincerely believe that gravity doesn’t exist, really believe it with all their heart, mind, have proof that it doesn’t exist, etc., but they aren’t floating off. Gravity doesn’t care what they think. God doesn’t care what we think either. He’s given us the path, the way forward, and we’ll answer to those.
We are not God, even though we may act like we are god of our life. We’ll answer for that.
God so wants us to know Him, to understand how wonderful He is, how beautiful He is, how powerful He is, how pure, how intense His love is.
God doesn’t hate, and there is right and wrong. God’s right and wrong are the only ones that matter. “For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live…”
