It was a depressing photo. An Army outpost in the middle of a barren middle eastern wasteland. There were sandbags piled up, a barbed wire fence and a small, hand painted sign: “God Hates Us All”. The message was clear, some in that camp had witnessed so much violence, pain and loss they could no longer bring themselves to believe that God had even an ounce of goodwill towards humanity. Tragically, those soldiers are joined by millions throughout the world who feel the same way – God hates us all!
Is it true? Are all the stories we’ve heard about a loving God just legends we were told as children? Or is the idea that God hates us all another one of those urban legends which has taken hold as a result of our increasing denial of the supernatural? If you are struggling with the questions, “Does God care? Why doesn’t He want me to have any fun? Can I ever please God?”, then join us for one of our weekend services. To deny the enormity of human suffering would be naïve, but to place the blame on God would not only be foolish, it would create total hopelessness.
Have you thought that maybe the suffering we experience in our lives is not because God hates us, but in a distorted, broken way, we hate ourselves? Regardless of where you are in your relationship with God, join us for one of our services. Together, let’s do some fact checking on what God is really like.
Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
