Is God Evil? Is Jesus Evil? If He cannot have evil thoughts, does He determine evil?
Series The Book of Joel
We start the lecture revisiting the meeting of Abram and Melchizedek, who is Jesus Christ. But we go to the rapture first and current events with Russa and their plans after the Ukraine.
Our pastor purposely looks for things that are not usually brought up in this debate over the errors of Calvinism and Arminianism. Jerimiah 19:5 is where we left off last time, but we bring in pottery being changed by the resurrection. It has to do with the water pots in the first miracle where broken water pots are filled with His blood. See... advanced Bible teaching is easy to understand. Well... after you hear him explain that it will be. We move into the Passover lamb and why the legs were not to be broken. And why does the side of Christ have to be pierced? Who pierced Him? He did... because man cannot... He's God.
But today we focus on Jerimiah 19:5 and the Lamb slain of the foundation of the world. So, we establish that God had none of the evil in mind. He says it. He's not the author of all evil in light of what He says in this passage. If Jesus Christ has sin, He cannot be the Passover lamb of God because the Passover lamb can have no blemish. When did God have evil thoughts? Never and no way. There's Jerimiah 29:11, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil..." God does not think evil! There's much more to this discussion and the pastor gets riled up because of the ridiculousness of what Augustine and Calvin want us to believe about God. We have to get back to the Hedge in Job. Notice how Satan's lies are unfalsifiable. And we move on to the kiss.
Thanks for joining us. We will be meeting again on September 24.
