“It’s Not All Up To God”

The New Testament tells us that Jesus went about “preaching the gospel” and telling people to “believe the gospel.”

But what was that message? And what does it have to say to hurting children?

This is a companion to yesterday’s post titled “It’s All Up To God!”.

The images used in this graphic page contrast two different worlds, yet whatever the gospel is, it must have a message to both worlds.

Whatever the Gospel is…it just can’t tell a starving child, “Your salvation depends on whether or not God chose you before you were born. It’s all up to God. As much as He would like to save everyone, You must be one of the fortunate elect for Him to save you. If you are, you will be saved!”

Whatever the Gospel is…it just can’t tell a starving child, “God wants to save you, but you did not get chosen. You must suffer not only now but for all eternity.”

Eventually the starving child may begin to think that God is cruel, and that God wants to save him or her, but He won’t.
