Two words summarize most of the teaching of the Bible, and if followed, lead to an incredibly fulfilling life. Yet, few people succeed in implementing this simple Biblical principle. Obeying these two words will save you from countless hours of mental and physical anguish and sleepless nights. These words are simply, "Trust Me". God values two things above all else in our lives- faith and obedience. These two things together are what define "Trust". Without faith, we can never please God and obedience is the action which demonstrates that our faith is real. Trust is simply faith acted out in obedience. Mankind's natural tendency is to trust the world and ourselves rather than God. That is why we are told to "Die (to yourself) daily." (I Corinthians 15:31) Furthermore, we are locked in an invisible spiritual battle of which most people are not even aware. We have an enemy who longs to destroy us and his primary weapon is to deceive us into putting our trust into something other than our Maker. Throughout our lives, we will be tempted to transfer our trust away from God and into material wealth, friends, our own accomplishments, or religion. Yet each will prove itself unsatisfying and we will look for some other source of meaning, purpose, and peace. Only a real relationship with the One who created each of us can fully satisfy our deep desire for meaning in life. So how do we hold onto this trust in God? One way is to maintain an unshakable understanding of who God is as our Creator. 1. God is not part of the created universe any more than a painter is a part of his painting. God made the universe, He actively holds it together, and He entered into it as Jesus Christ...but He is not trapped inside what He created. 2. Time is a part of the physical universe. Time is not a constant but varies with mass and acceleration. God is not trapped inside time anymore than a chef is trapped inside his souffle. As one prophet stated "God inhabits eternity." (Isaiah 57:15). 3. Since God is outside time, He instantly sees the past, the present, and the future. Even before the first molecule was created and time began, God knew every person, action, tear, and tragedy that would ever happen. Nothing surprises God. When the reality of these three truths really sinks in, you become free to completely trust God. You understand that He is in absolute control. Even though He chooses not to violate our free will, His ultimate plan cannot be thwarted and He has promised that He will not allow anything in our lives without giving us the ability to endure it. (I Cor. 10:13) Furthermore, we are promised that all trials and tribulations will ultimately be for our own good and for His glory. (Romans 8:28). Finally, God has the ability to take care of our financial, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs (Matt. 10:28-31). If He chooses not to give us what we think we need, this too is for our own good (Jn 16:33). If you only trust Jesus with your heart; you will live on an emotional roller coaster waiting for the next spiritual high. If you only trust Jesus with your mind; your faith will be dry and powerless. If you only trust Jesus with your strength; you won't be able to tap into His strength and you will ultimately burn out. Trust Jesus with all of your heart, all of your mind, and all of your strength.

I say, ask the Native Americans where that trust got them.

Lack of trust has allowed me to see what the realities are for non-Christians and the way they are treated by so-called Christians.

Not by all, but by many who believe in the convert or die Coulterist way of life.

Four words end with the same means, and don't require a whole book of stolen fairytales to convice you.

There ya go, Mark, casting them pearls ...
Unfortunately, people either believe or are deceived, and it ain't hard to tell them apart. The only thing that really convinces people is an experience with the Father himself. We can get their attention with signs and wonders, but they have to be open to a real experience with the Creator of the Universe to really grasp what it's all about.
Keep on believing!

just like the non beleivers to stoop to below the gutter because they can't change believers minds. LOL LOL The 1st ammendment gives us not only freedom OF religion, but freedom FROM religion. maybe some non believers should exercise their freedom FROM religion and not stoop to insulting believer's God or their beliefs.
 
but whatever makes you happy, it is entertaining to watch those that would cry out for tolerance to not tolerate opposing beiefs/opinions. LOL LOL no one is forcing belief in God on anyone. It is fun to watch the hypocritical behavior. It just shows how lacking their life is.

It appears to me that the atheists and wiccans are all about personal gain and selfishness. The Christians are about helping others to see the truth without even a thought of "What's in it for me".

how so, mark? i know i'm not on the pagan path for personal gain. i know many pagans that are only living a good life and expect nothing in return. most of us, in the end, are only wanting to look back at the end of our days and see that we lived a full and just life. we look forward to returning to the arms of the gods knowing that our life was just and brought gladness and joy to those around us. but i guess in a way you are right. we do want something out of our beliefs. we want happiness and joy.
