Warnings from Paul

Have you ever took the time to research all the different religions there are in the world? The number is growing everyday.  Reasons for this range from following in parent/relatives footsteps to even popularity.  On top of all the religions in the world there are many people that don’t even believe in a God and claim to rely on science itself.  I could go on and talk about all the different denominations and what they believe in, but that isn’t the point.  The point is that a lot of people lose sight of who God is.  Have you ever been in a conversation  with a person who thinks he/she has it all together and tells you how things run in the world?  I know I can relate to that personally.
Biblically speaking so did Paul as he warns the Churches of Galatia.
Galatians 1:6-10: I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ.  You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all.  You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.  Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you.  I say again what we have said before: Of anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.  Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God.  If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.
Paul, an apostle was not appointed an apostle by any group of people or any human authority.  Paul was called by Jesus Christ himself and by God the Father, who raised Jesus from the dead.( Galatians1:1)
What was then is still today.  There are places you can go today where pleasing the people instead of God is the only reason why they stay open.  There are places that twist the Truth, not only twisting the Holy Bible around, but also their own religion around to fit their needs.  It is also true for many non-Christ followers that focus on science, yet it was early scientist such as:Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, and Galileo who thought their belief in God made it easier to do science.  All these different practices constantly change. Playing the favoritism card and changing their own beliefs day by day.  I agree that today is not the same as yesterday, but God’s word always stays the same.  He knows every situation you have been in and will be in the future. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.(Revelation 22:13)
No matter where you are in your life know that God is waiting on you to call upon him alone. No human can say or do what God has already done for you.
God Bless
