You Can Know What God Wants

Just read this from a doctor who will remain anonymous,

As I see it, very little truth of any kind comes out of churches, local or global. How could it? The central business of churches, religious guidance, is based on the mass delusion that the church knows what "God" wants. But how can anyone possibly know what "God" wants or doesn't want? To repeat: how can any human person possibly know what "God" wants or doesn't want?

And is it not the height of egotism for one human being to imagine that he or she knows the rules of the universe (if there even are such rules) and so can explain them to others? What nonsense!

And, if there really is a God who hears prayers and answers questions by speaking to my small, still self, why would I not want to find Him/Her myself, apart from what anyone else might believe? Why would I not want to find out for myself what "God" thinks is right and wrong?

While there are many churches which have little or no truth, there are many that do. It depends on the specific church, the pastor, priest, and the people in the church.

The real question though is, can anyone know what God wants? Absolutely! God has revealed Himself (truth) through the prophets, the Bible and through His Son Jesus Christ.

"God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high." Hebrews 1:1-3

Jesus claimed to be Truth, "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." John 14:6

The good doctor was right, God wants you to find the truth for yourself. If you sincerely look for the truth, you will find it. Jesus promised this when He was accused of having His own teaching that was not from God,

"If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him." John 7:17-18

Are you willing to do His will? If not, you will never know the truth!

God wants you to find the truth! He loves you and wants you to find Him!

"You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
