PEOPLE PROJECT UPON THE GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT WHAT IS IN THEIR OWN HEARTS AND DISMISS THE LOVING KINDNESS THAT IS SHOWN BY HIM TOWARDS THOSE WHO DESIRE RIGHTEOUSNESS. Amazingly, Unbelievers, Who Express Discontent With Their Own Lives, Cannot See That The God Of Love Is Speaking Through The Pages Of The Old Testament. Unfortunately, while rejecting what they perceive to be the angry tyrannical God of the Old Testament, these malcontents do not want to accept the love of God that was explicitly displayed through the crucifixion of the Son of God, Lord Jesus Christ.

People tend to project. Self-projection is unbelievably common. Consequently, unbelievers unwittingly point to what is virtually a mirror of themselves. Consciously, they will deny this. They do not believe that they are morally inferior to the Omnipotent Creator. Unbelievers do not believe that they are merely born to die. According to their nature, they refuse to believe the truth that they are going to die—or, at least, are unwilling to address this fact.

Unbelief is a disease. Unbelief is a very deceptive disease to possess. Many call this sin. Professionals in the humanities do not like to use the word “sin”, they prefer disease.  After all, disease, really is derived from the word “ease”, and with the prefix “dis” added, the word “disease” means to be “not at ease”.  This is why people who suffer from unbelief are not at ease with idea that they could be loved.
Their problem is really an issue of righteousness.

Righteousness is the ability to be wise to what is right and, therefore, avoid doing what is wrong. Unfortunately, children are taught at schools that it is alright to be wrong, for everybody makes mistakes. The problem with this philosophy is that it corrupts the thinking of children and they become unbelievers in the reality that truth exists.

People who desire truth also understand that this is the right way to go in life and thus their thinking is orientated towards righteousness; not only in being wise in their thoughts, but also in their behavior.

Those who desire righteousness also realize the truth that they are unrighteous. Therefore they will seek out the means to empower them. Interestingly, Jesus said,
  • Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (Matthew 5:6)
Unbelievers do not want to be satisfied, because they only understand dissatisfaction. This is why they keep pointing to what they believe are the unsatisfactory actions of our righteous Creator, who judges sin for the evil that it is, because it creates unsatisfactory relationships. Love, on the other hand, is all we need. Even insects sing about it. Unfortunately, unless they know the Creator of Life, they cannot find it.
  • In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
Unbelief comes about because of sin. Sin is the violation of love. People who find violating love’s requirements acceptable, have difficulty grasping that they can be loved. The alternative is not something anyone ought to countenance—an eternally growing emptiness within is probably worse than becoming a black hole. At least, that is the fate, I was shown that I averted after I had accepted God’s gift of love for me.
