Some Things God Does Not Know - Westside Church of Christ

Some Things God Does Not Know Psalm 139:1-6 Introduction One of Gods traits is His omniscience: Psa. 139:1-6; Prov. 5:21; Rom. 16:27; 1 Tim. 1:17; Lk. 12:6-7 But, did you know there are some things God does not know? Not challenging Gods omniscience, but there are certain things, due to their nature, God

does God does not not know. 3 Any Sin He Does Not Hate Why does God hate sin? He knows it causes us to lose quality of life: Psa. 38:3-8; Judges 17-21; 1 Jn. 5:3; Jn. 10:10 He knows sins consequences: Isa. 59:1-2; Rom. 6:23 He knows the terror of hell: Matt. 25:41; Mk. 9:42-48; 2 Cor. God does not 5:10-11a; Heb.

10:31; Matt. 4 Any Sin He Does Not Hate Many men deny the existence of sin; instead sin is classified as a disease. Men have a penchant for classifying sins (e.g., Roman Catholic: venial vs. mortal sins). Bible

makesGodno such does not 5 Any Sin He Does Not Hate God always hated sin: Adams sin: Gen. 3 Davids sin: 2 Sam. 12:1-14 Wisdom Literature describes Gods attitude toward sin: Psa. 5:4-6; 45:7; Prov. 6:16-19 God

hates sin! Do we?! God does not 6 Any Sin He Does Not Hate God even hates small sins we sometimes think are trivial: Gal. 5:19-21; 1 Cor. 6:9-10; Matt. 5:28; 1 Jn. 3:15 What attitude should we take toward sin? Rom. 12:9; Psa. 119:104; 101:3;

8:13; 1 God doesProv. not 7 Any Sinner He Does Not Love Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:4-5; Titus 3:3-7 As intensely as God hates sin He loves the sinner: Ezek. 33:11; 1 Cor. 6:9-11 God wants all to be saved: 1

Tim. 2:3-4; 2 Pet. 3:9, 15; Heb. 7:25 Jesus gave three vivid pictures God does not illustrating Gods love of the 8 Anything But the Gospel to Call Sinners to Salvation The gospel is Gods only means to call sinners to salvation: Rom. 1:16-17; 2 Thess. 2:13-14 Through

the gospel message we gain salvation from sin and restored fellowship with God in the church: Eph. 1:3-13a, 22-23; 4:4; 5:23 We must never tamper with the God does not 9 Anything But the Gospel to Call Sinners to Salvation Indictments of the Social Gospel James P. Needham THE SOCIAL GOSPEL is a philosophy in

religion that the church should concern itself with worldly problems rather than spiritual ones. It is more in ecology, biology, psychology and sociology than in theology. It is more concerned about preserving the whooping crane and alligator than about preaching Christ the emancipator. It spends more time fighting God does not earthly pollution that MAY damage the10 Anything But the Gospel to Call Sinners to Salvation Indictments of the Social Gospel James P. Needham THE SOCIAL GOSPEL is more interested in feeding the body than in nurturing the soul. Its goal is education, not salvation; recreation, not sanctification; fraternity,

instead of eternity. It concerns itself with the new morality rather than with immortality; birth control rather than selfcontrol; ministering to the inner city God does not rather than seeking the heavenly city;11 Anything But the Gospel to Call Sinners to Salvation Indictments of the Social Gospel James P. Needham THE SOCIAL GOSPEL philosophy is more interested in helping men make a living than in helping them make a life. It is more concerned with civil rights than with spiritual fights; civil laws rather than spiritual flaws; revolution rather than revelation; civil disobedience rather than spiritual obedience; communism rather God does not than faith, repentance

and baptism. 12 Anything But the Gospel to Call Sinners to Salvation Indictments of the Social Gospel James P. Needham THE SOCIAL GOSPEL is a lame duck spiritually because it is without the power to fulfill the lasting needs of the human race. It preaches Christ as a great social reformer, rather than as a Spiritual Savior. It limits His work to earthly benefits for mankind; and Paul said, If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men God does not 15:19). most miserable (I Cor. Social13

Any Better Time To Obey the Gospel Than Now God has only promised one opportunity for salvation: TODAY! 2 Cor. 6:2; Jas. 4:14; Isa. 1:18; Eccl. 12:1 We cannot be complacent about our salvation: Rom. 13:11-14; Jn. 9:4; 1 Pet. 4:17-18 God does not 14 Anyway to Deal With Sin Except Through His Son Cannot

save ourselves no matter how good we live: Acts 10 & 11; Isa. 64:6; Titus 3:3-5; Jn. 3:3-5; Gal. 3:26-27 Salvation is only found in Christ: 2 Tim. 2:10; Acts 4:12; Jn. 14:6; Jn. 8:24 In this regard Christianity is exclusive and intolerant: Jn. 3:36 To preach the God does not politically correct 15 Anyway to Get Gospel to the World Except Through Us Gospel

is Gods power unto salvation, but God depends on us to take it to the world: Rom. 1:1617; 10:14 Not just the duty of gospel preachers: Acts 8:1 Dont need a grandiose plan with centralized organization and God does oversight: Acts 8:1not 16 Anyway to Get Gospel to the World Except Through Us

Each of us needs to prepare 2ourselves Cor. 5:10-11a: For we must for the work of teaching all appear before the judgment others the gospel. seat of Christ, that each one may

Grow as a Christian: 2 Pet. 1:3-11 receive the things done in the Greater zeal to share gospel: Matt. body, according to what he has 16:26; 1 Cor. 9:16-17 done, or approach: bad. 11 Gainwhether knowledgegood for right

Knowing, therefore, the terror of Acts 2 vs. Acts 17 Realize the Lord, we persuade men; Gods definition of success: Cor. 3:5-9 God does not 1 17 A Life He Cannot

Change God is the potter and we are the clay; we can be a vessel for honor if we submit to Him: 1 Cor. 6:911; Acts 18:8; Jas. 1:21 God can save anyone: Acts 2:41; Mk. 15:14; Acts 9:1; 1 God does not Tim. 1:12-13; Matt. 11:28-30 18 One Problem He Cannot Solve God has the ability: Jer. 32:17

God has proven He will go to any length necessary to help us: Rom. 8:32, 37 These are the questions: Do we have enough faith? Eph. 3:20; Psa. 37:5 Will we accept His will? Matt. 19:9; God does not 6:10; 26:39 19 One Man Who Can Save Himself

Paul is crystal clear: Eph. 2:810; Titus 3:5 Many have tried to save themselves, but all have failed! Adam and Eve: Gen. 3 Cain: Gen. 4; Heb. 11:4 Jews: Gal. 2:16; 5:4 Can only be saved if we receive does not message: 1 and obey a God foolish 20 One Burden Too Heavy For Him to Carry Gods promise: Matt.

11:28-30 Our role: 1 Pet. 5:6-7 Glory of His promise: Heb. 4:16 God does not 21 11 One Question He Cannot Answer Gods ability: Isa. 46:9-10; Rom. 11:33

Our obligation: Jas. 1:5-8 Faith to accept no as an answer: God does 2 not Cor. 12:822 12 One Storm He Cannot Calm His ability: Mk. 4:39- 40 Our

25 Conclusion And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of what God does not know One Habit He Cannot Break: 1 Jn. 4:4 One Tear He Cannot Dry: Psa. 55:22; 56:3-11 One Who Loves You More Than Him: Jn. 15:13-14 Remember Point #4: God does not God does not
