God is narrow minded! He believes there is only one Deity (Ephesians 4:5). All others are the figment of the believer’s imagination. God believes that He is the only Supreme Spirit (Ephesians 4:4). All other beings with a spirit exist because He is their Creator (Hebrews 12:9). He claims to be the only Lord of lords (Ephesians 4:5; 1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 19:16). God revealed one faith and He is the way, the truth, and the life by which mankind must approach him (Ephesians 4:5; John 14:6). He informs us that all have sinned and come short of His expectations (Romans 3:10, 23). There is one saved group that He adds folks to (Acts 2:47 NASV). He sent His Word to become a man, and that man, Jesus (the Salvation of Jehovah), would be the payment for our sins (John 1:1-14; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Isaiah 53:1-12).
On Pentecost, Peter spoke about Jesus being the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies. Some Jews asked. “What shall we do” (Acts 2:37)? Peter gave them instruction and encouraged them with, “Be saved from this perverse generation” (Acts 2:40). Those who believed Peter’s narrow minded sermon “gladly received his word” by responding to the apostle’s instruction of verse 38. God added them to the saved (vv. 46-47).
He created one man for one woman named Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. If Adam was mated to Steve, there would have been no children to survive their deaths, nor to repopulate the earth. Men don’t have babies. They don’t have the ability to bear that much pain! God told a man and a woman to repopulate the earth. That’s the way it began, and that’s the way it continues to be. God’s way or no way! He is narrow minded.
God is narrow minded! He expects His creation to honor Him. Man was given freewill. Yet, man used that freewill in an attempt to replace God. We’re still making that mistake today. Man dismisses God from his thinking. Man claims he was not created by Divine Intelligence, but we evolved out of nothing and in dying, return to nothing. So God was dismissed from our public schools. Then all government property removed mention of Him. Out of sight, out of mind was the theme. The modern world was not first in attempting such stupidity!
Ancient societies invented their own gods. Make it, created it’s religious lifestyle to live by, accept those rules as divine, and then worship it by dismissing all absolutes. Nothing new about that. Thousands of years ago, men were living by doing what was right in their own eyes, rather than submit to a narrow minded God!
The Sexual Revolution created “free love,” but was infected with AIDS and STD’s. Today, hate is stifling and lying is a way of life. But like medicine, it has its grievous side effects!
Man convinced himself that what he wanted is what matters. What someone else desires doesn’t. If their lifestyle conflicts with yours, destroy theirs to keep yours! Use people. Enslave people. Silence opposition. Self is god and selfishness is its worship!
What happens is that a godless society fosters a narrow mindedness upon all its citizens which must be accepted as normal, and the followers of a narrow minded God must be subjugated to silence and obedience because that way of life is anti-social!
Which narrow mindedness do you prefer?
