ec1dot29 - Just God Being God
It’s been said that the God of the Old Testament is mean and cruel while the God of the New Testament is gentle, loving and kind.
A loving God that rebukes and destroys - seems like a recipe for some confusion and a fantastic topic for Another Empty Conversation
Hebrews 13:8 says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
James 1:17 says that there is no change or shifting shadows when it comes to God
When it comes to the idea of God being different in the OT and the NT, who will you choose to believe - your own limited perspective of the Scriptures or what the Scriptures actually say?
We rush to judgement - especially when new information makes us feel uncomfortable. But knowing God and understanding his character is a lifelong pursuit. Be careful making shape declarations without much study and prayer.
The time has arrived for Another Empty Conversation - a show that lets you eavesdrop on a conversation about faith and following Jesus. We talk about our faith so you can talk about yours.
My name is Josh and I welcome you to Empty Conversation episode 1dot29 and our discussion centers on a common complaint. Why is there a stark contrast between the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament? I think this is a case where perception does not meet up with reality.
But before we get to the EC crew just a couple of reminders:
New series is on the horizon! Have you stopped to ask yourself “what does it mean to be a Christian?” Well, if you haven’t you can ask the question right along with us because we will spend five weeks talking about different aspects of being a Christian that include church, rebellion, mastering, serving, studying, and living and dying.
This is a “can’t miss series” and just to make sure you don’t miss anything make sure you sign up for email reminders at www.empty.church/what
