One fascinating fact about many of the religions of the world is their unpredictability. New Agers believe that everything is god and god is everything. The source of authority is what you experience. You may believe one thing to be true today, but then an experience tomorrow will change that truth. And what you believe to be true will not be true for me. For New Agers, truth changes.
Buddhists believe that salvation is in karma. Kenneth Latourette, a leading church historian, explains this: "Karma may be described as the sum of an individual's thoughts and actions in all his previous incarnations. In each incarnation, he modifies his karma for either good or bad... The ultimate aim is... to escape from... the appalling eternal succession of births and rebirths."
How different this is from God's simple, unchanging plan! We know where we stand, what we must do, and the result – an eternal, unalterable place in the family of God.
The God of the Bible is the unchanging Supreme Being. He has never altered His character or purpose. That is what I love about our wonderful and marvelous God.
When I get up in the morning to pray, His response will not be different from when I pray to Him at bedtime. When I confront a difficult situation, I have calmness of heart because I know His unchanging Holy Spirit is present to guide me. The Bible presents the God we worship as One who is the same from eternity to eternity.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
When you awake tomorrow morning, remember that God is exactly the same as He is today, and will be the same in 10 years, 10,000 years or 10 million years. You can stake your life on it.
