God’s Sovereignty – He can do whatever pleases him

I don’t understand the logic of those who reject Christianity because they think that God is not good, fair or just. Or that Christians are hypocrites. First of all, God (Jesus Christ) created the universe and and everything in it (John 1, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1), and therefore, He has the right to do whatever He wants with and to His creation. Imagine that you created something – maybe a computer program (I am a programmer). Since you created it, you have the right to do whatever you want to it, including destroy it or parts of it. We as God’s creation do not have the right to question Him about how he is running His creation. How absurd is that? As Psalms 115:3 says “Our God is in heaven; He does whatever pleases Him”. He can do whatever He wants and no matter what we think about it, that doesn’t change the fact that it is true. We either play by His rules or we lose the game. We can’t back out and refuse to play the game. By doing that, we automatically lose. The fact of the matter is: God exists. And furthermore, we are accountable to Him for our actions (Romans 14:12 – So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God). Don’t be foolish and reject God because you think He is not good or fair or just. From your limited human perspective, you can’t possibly know whether the ultimate effect of any particular situation is good until long afterward. Whether Christians are hypocritical, judgmental or otherwise not Christ-like, has no bearing on whether Christianity is true or not. Just evaluate the evidence. Look at the evidence for Christ and the historicity of the New Testament. Place your trust in Him – He is faithful. Romans 10 says “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame” and “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”. Do it today – don’t be foolish!
