micah7:9:
This just maybe my folly, but why do you suppose great preachers and evangelists such as D.L.Moody,  Charles Spurgen, Calvin, Johnathan Edwards, who surely read the Word of God, that spoke greatly of God's love, chose to preach a message to millions of how that God of love would carry such a vendetta, that was so hateful.
How is it they chose a message of fear rather than love to win, as they said, souls?
I know why today that message is preached, contend if you will, but it is for money.

Thanks and Peace.  :Peace:

There is a verse about it somewhere in the Bible.
If you teach your children when they are young they continue to follow the teaching when they get older.
So those people you mentioned learned a certain view from their parents. Based on that view they follow certain education. If it's for example a Catholic school you can bet on it Trinity and virgin Mary are a fact. Nothing to discuss. No honest study. You simply won't get your degree on a Catholic uni if you don't believe in trinity and other stuff.
There is no searching. Just walking the narrow road of the doctrine...

micah7:9:
Yeah your correct, its just that these men really read the Bible, a lot, and still came up with such fearful preaching of a God of Love.
Is just a mind boggler for me that they would zero in on such a vengeful teaching to "save" souls to a loving God.  :sigh:

There's a tradition involved as WW says, through which men filter the scriptures and others beliefs.  It colors our world.

Also, I believe there's a blindness.  We're all veiled, some to more or lesser extent - as God sees fit.   :2c:

That said, I understand your difficulty believing it.  I have had those moments too.  :)

Hosea 4 : 6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest   "( or messenger of life, preacher of Life, Lee's in sert )"to me: seeing thou has forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

KJV.      the carnal has a lot to say, but the spiritual has more to say.   Lee
