In reference to C. Bennet’s letter of August 20, 2011, entitled, “Jesus just wants money,” I want to respond because of my love for our Father God and to share His good news.
Bennet had one thing right, “the only person (created being) who is real and not a fake is the devil.” But he also said, “God causes people pain and suffering” which is contradicted when he said, “god does not exist.”
The Bible makes it clear. Genesis l:l-31, “In the beginning God ... God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” I John 3:8, “He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.”
Jesus doesn’t need our money — he owns it all, Psalm 50:10. We are all sinners, but, thankfully, salvation is a free gift. Romans 6:23; “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Each person has the choice to accept or reject this gift.
There are frauds and connivers in every walk of life — even in the church. However, the “church” has been, and is, one of the major humanitarian aid donors in the world — providing assistance to those in need.
People aren’t perfect, but God is. We need to look past people and go to the source of our faith, the Holy Bible and our Heavenly Father. He hears and answers prayer.
