A few days ago on the Jim Baker show, Jim said God has shown me that great and terrible things are about to take place on the Earth, but I have prayed to the Lord that these things don’t come to pass.
Talk about a no lose comment. Essentially, either I’m a great prophet or God listens closely to my prayers. I don’t see the downside unless it’s a lie (my personal guess) and that God will surely judge.
Another pastor on a different show was saying God’s love is unconditional, all you have to do is … .
Now I don’t believe God’s love is unconditional. If he doesn’t care what you do, his love is really worthless. I think the comment just shows the stupidity of the people who profess God’s love as unconditional. They don’t want rules, and religion has become a dirty word.
I believe the speaker went on to say all you have to do is say this simple prayer. I just thought this comment was funny and wanted to point out the hypocrisy. His love is unconditional, but oh here’s a condition.
Between us the first condition is believe. John 3:16.
