There was some in the store the other day and they made a statment that really surprised me. They stated that "God never takes away, but only gives." Now that sounds great. I quoted Job to them (the LORD give and takes away). And they stated that "Job was in a depressive and sarcastic mood when he spoke these words." Can someone help me out on this one?
Well I guess you could answer that sure He only gives:Peace to the righteous,Turmoil to the wickedEternal life to the Children of God,Eternal death to the Children of the Devil.He doesn't take away life from those who seek and he doesn't take away judgment from those opposed to Him. :-) [i]edit[/i]Ask them this, "Does He [i]take away[/i] sin?"
Sometimes His best gifts are the things He takes away.
God never takes away, but only gives."
You can't take away what you are willing to give. What do I have that the Lord God hasn't given. we come into the world with nothing and the Lord willing we leave with eternal life. Is every question an opportunity for us to cross swords? Yes iron sharpens iron, lets look into the word for answers that will give us peace of heart and Gods glory to shine out into the darkness. What more can God give he so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. I choose to follow in the steps of my hero and give glory and praise to the Father of Heaven and earth.
