God Thinks Like We Do, Part 4 of 4

February 20, 2012
When we realize that God does not think like we do, we can begin to see Him as He is — the God Who is in control. In the race of life, we must leave behind our preconceptions and allow our thinking to be transormed by God’s revelation of Himself in the Bible. That revelation is all we need for this life and the life to come. Today: some final thoughts on how God thinks.

Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

There are just two ways to approach an understanding of God: from the bottom up, or from the top down. Only one way works. Either you accept His written revelation, or you invent your own idols, because we all worship something. Today: more on coming to grips with the true God, and on coming to grips with the way He thinks.

The mind of man is very inventive when the true God gets in the way. Want your own God? Well, you can have one! The idea is not new. Pagan tribes worship wooden carvings, while modern man worships his stock portfolio. Both practices are idolatry, which is the rejection of the true God. Today we will learn why God will not tolerate less than first place in our lives.

Modern humanity believes so strongly in its own intelligience that people invent their own gods. As you run today’s race of life, get ready for a paradigm shift. The Creator of the universe does not think like we do. He never has and He never will. This means that we need to get on His page, not the other way around.

Even those of us who live fast-paced lives should pause and ponder some mysteries. The suffering of God is one such mystery. In the wake of the terrible tsunami in Asia, we all struggle with the concept of human suffering. Today, we will try to understand the suffering of God, and why it brings meaning to our suffering as humans.

Some theologians hold that God is without passion, that He has no feelings and therefore, cannot personally suffer. While these theologians theorize, let us see what the Bible says, and find evidence that God indeed can suffer, and has suffered, and what all of that means to you and me. The implications are profound.

All of us are in a race to go somewhere or do something. Before you do, spend time to think some deep thoughts about God. Pause to ponder perhaps the deepest mystery of all. This profound mystery is the question of how God was affected by the sacrifice of His own Son. Was He passive or did He weep?

Many Christians say they love God, but how many say they fear Him? They have lost the sense of God’s righteous justice. As a result, they live as they like, claiming that Jesus will forgive whatever they do. After all, what is grace for? Get set for some powerful words to those who take sin lightly.

For too many of us, very little is permanent. Fads come and go. We forget that God never changes. His love never changes. His justice never changes. His opinion of our sin never changes either. Today you’ll hear more about the lie that God is more tolerant than He used to be — a lie we must all renounce.
February 8, 2012
In the Old Testament, sin was judged quickly and harshly. Nowadays it seems that sin goes virtually unpunished. Why? The answer lies in the distinction between God’s character and His administration of creation. Today we will learn why believing that God has changed is tantamount to believing a dangerous lie — one you cannot afford to believe.
February 7, 2012
Since many believe man evolved, they also think God has evolved. No longer mean, He is now a gentler, kinder God. And that is lie number two in our series about God: the lie that God is more tolerant than He used to be. Get set, because today, another myth is going to be debunked.
