Pick of the day: Don’t put words in God’s mouth
Did God say that? Over the past several years, it has become popular for people to put cute sayings and opinions on a church sign or elsewhere and sign God’s name. Suggesting, or pretending, that God said it.
It is usually done in good humor, but I wonder if God thinks it’s funny. People should have more reverence and fear than to do this sort of thing. God doesn’t need any help. Just tell the people exactly what he said. If you dare.
Here’s a good rule to go by. If you are going to blame God for saying what is on your sign, it should be a direct quote from the Holy Scriptures, word for word. And nothing more.
Like the Psalm that says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Now there’s a direct quote that God said. And that would certainly include America, a nation that is quickly falling from grace. And judgment is even now being served.
All this other foolishness just might be forgery.
