3 ວິທີທີ່ຈະປະຕິເສດພຣະເຈົ້າ

ທ່ານປະຕິເສດພຣະເຈົ້າຂອງວິທະຍາໄລ? ເຊື່ອ​ຫລື​ບໍ່, ນີ້ເປັນຄໍາຖາມທີ່ສໍາຄັນສໍາລັບການທັງຫມົດຂອງພວກເຮົາທີ່ຈະຄິດກ່ຽວກັບການ. ມັນເປັນທີ່ຈະແຈ້ງໃນພຣະຄໍາພີວ່າຊີວິດນິລັນດອນແມ່ນ freely ກັບຜູ້ຄົນທີ່ເຊື່ອວາງໃຈໃນພຣະເຈົ້າແລະເຊື່ອວ່າພຣະອົງຂ່າວດີ, ແລະພຽງແຕ່ການຕັດສິນໃຈດໍາເນີນການກ່ຽວກັບຜູ້ທີ່ປະຕິເສດພຣະອົງ. ແຕ່ວ່າບໍ່ມີວິທີການຫຼາຍກວ່າຫນຶ່ງມື້ເພື່ອປະຕິເສດພຣະເຈົ້າ. ທີ່ນີ້ມີສາມທີ່ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າພົບເຫັນຢູ່ໃນພຣະສັນຍາໃຫມ່.

1. ປະຕິເສດວ່າພຣະເຢຊູເປັນຜູ້ທີ່ພຣະອົງກ່າວວ່າພຣະອົງໄດ້
“ຜູ້ທີ່ເປັນຄົນຂີ້ຕົວະແຕ່ວ່າຜູ້ທີ່ປະຕິເສດວ່າພຣະເຢຊູຄືພຣະຄຣິດ? ວ່າແມ່ນ antichrist, ຜູ້ທີ່ປະຕິເສດພຣະບິດາແລະພຣະບຸດ. ບໍ່ມີໃຜທີ່ປະຕິເສດພຣະບຸດກໍມີພຣະບິດາ. ໃຜກໍຕາມທີ່ສາລະພາບພຣະບຸດມີບິດາ.”

1 John 2:22-23

ມີຫລາຍຄົນໃນໂລກຂອງພວກເຮົາໃນມື້ນີ້ຜູ້ທີ່ຄິດວ່າຕົນເອງເປັນປະຊາຊົນວິນຍານຫຼືແມ້ກະທັ້ງສາສະຫນາແມ່ນ. ພວກເຂົາເຈົ້າເຊື່ອວ່າມີພະເຈົ້າ, ແລະພວກເຂົາເຈົ້າພະຍາຍາມເພື່ອບູຊາພຣະອົງໃນວິທີການຂອງເຂົາເຈົ້າເອງ. ບາງທີພວກເຂົາເຈົ້າເຖິງແມ່ນວ່າພະເຍຊູເປັນຄູສອນທີ່ຍິ່ງໃຫຍ່ຫຼືສາດສະດາຈາກພຣະເຈົ້າ. ແຕ່ຖ້າຫາກວ່າພວກເຂົາເຈົ້າບໍ່ເຊື່ອວ່າພຣະເຢຊູເປັນຜູ້ທີ່ພຣະອົງກ່າວວ່າພຣະອົງເປັນ, ພວກເຂົາເຈົ້າໄດ້ປະຕິເສດພຣະອົງ.

ເຫັນພຣະເຢຊູພຽງແຕ່ເປັນຄູອາຈານສົມບັດສິນທໍາທີ່ຍິ່ງໃຫຍ່ແມ່ນຍັງປະຕິເສດພຣະອົງແລະເພາະສະນັ້ນຈຶ່ງປະຕິເສດພຣະເຈົ້າ. ພຣະເຈົ້ານໍາພາເອົາໃຈໃສ່ຂອງພວກເຮົາກັບພຣະເຢຊູເປັນຜູ້ຊ່ອຍໃຫ້ລອດຂອງໂລກແລະພຣະອົງບໍ່ໄດ້ສະເຫນີໃຫ້ພວກເຮົາເສັ້ນທາງທາງເລືອກ (John 14:6, ກິດຈະການ 4:12).

ດັ່ງນັ້ນການປະຕິເສດພຣະເຢຊູໄດ້ປະຕິເສດພຣະເຈົ້າ. ແຕ່, ເປັນ John 1:12 ກ່າວວ່າ, "ທຸກຄົນທີ່ບໍ່ໄດ້ຮັບພຣະອົງ, ຜູ້ທີ່ເຊື່ອໃນນາມຂອງພຣະອົງ, ພຣະອົງໄດ້ໃຫ້ສິດທິໃນການກາຍເປັນເດັກນ້ອຍຂອງພຣະເຈົ້າ.” ທຸກໆຄົນສາມາດເປັນລູກຂອງພຣະເຈົ້າ, ຖ້າຫາກວ່າພວກເຂົາເຈົ້າຈະເຊື່ອວ່າພຣະເຢຊູ.

2. ບໍ່ຍອມຮັບພຣະເຢຊູຕໍ່ຫນ້າຄົນອື່ນ
“ສະນັ້ນທຸກຄົນຜູ້ທີ່ຮັບຮູ້ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າກ່ອນທີ່ຈະຜູ້ຊາຍ, ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າຍັງຈະໄດ້ຮັບຮູ້ຕໍ່ຫນ້າບິດາຂອງຂ້າພະເຈົ້າຜູ້ທີ່ຢູ່ໃນສະຫວັນ, ແຕ່ຖ້າຜູ້ປະຕິເສດຂ້າພະເຈົ້າກ່ອນທີ່ຈະຜູ້ຊາຍ, ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າຍັງຈະປະຕິເສດພຣະບິດາຂອງຂ້າພະເຈົ້າຜູ້ທີ່ຢູ່ໃນສະຫວັນ.”

ມັດທາຍ 10:32-33

ດັ່ງນັ້ນບາງທີພວກເຮົາສາລະພາບວ່າພຣະເຢຊູເປັນພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າໃນຫົວໃຈຂອງພວກເຮົາ. ແຕ່ພວກເຮົາຍັງສາມາດປະຕິເສດພຣະອົງໂດຍການມີຄວາມລະອາຍຂອງພຣະອົງຕໍ່ຫນ້າຄົນອື່ນ. ໃນປັດຈຸບັນ, ພວກເຮົາໄດ້ທັງຫມົດຊ້າທີ່ຈະຍອມຮັບຄວາມເຊື່ອຂອງພວກເຮົາກ່ອນທີ່ຄົນອື່ນ. ພວກເຮົາດໍາລົງຊີວິດໃນວັດທະນະທໍາທີ່ເປັນ hostile ເພີ່ມຂຶ້ນຕໍ່ສາດສະຫນາແລະໂດຍສະເພາະຄົນຄຣິດສະຕຽນ. ຄຣິດສະຕຽນແມ່ນ painted ເປັນ morons ຜູ້ທີ່ເຊື່ອໃນຮັກ, ເປັນອັນຕະລາຍ, ແລະ tales fairy bigoted. ນີ້ບາງຄັ້ງກໍສາມາດນໍາພາເຮົາໃຫ້ນ້ອຍລົງກັບຄືນໄປບ່ອນ, ແລະປະຕິເສດທີ່ຈະຮັບຮູ້ພຣະເຢຊູກ່ອນທີ່ພວກເຮົາຄິດວ່າຈະເຍາະເຍີ້ຍພວກເຮົາ.

  1. Guestreply

    I truly believe Jesus is God’s son sent to this earth to redeem every one who is lost. But that being said, I am kind of a shy person around other people, and I get awkward in social occasions that don’t involve conversation about Jesus and the Gospel, let alone the conversations that do involve talking about Jesus because I guess I am afraid of the consequences. How can I overcome this fear? Some verses that will help?

    • Flacoreply

      I truly do understand what you mean when it comes to those times when the conversations seems to turn anti Christian or religious because I tend to get that a lot being in the military. In fact just the other day it happendA captain spoke to me about Aliens creating humans on earth and his belief about them. If you’r not familiar with this view it comes on the History Channel a lot (Ancient Aliens). Though this view is very interesting to me, I do not believe it myself. Anyway, I tend to do ok jobs when it comes to speaking for our Lord. Sometimes I’m nervous, sometimes I’m not, but the important thing is to speak. Let it be known what you believe. Courage is doing something even though we are afraid. To be totally honest, in the end this guy made me look pretty stupid. I choked a lot, I forgot a lot of information I have in the back of my head, and went totally blank. I felt stupid and I’m sure I looked stupid. ຢ່າງໃດກໍຕາມ, I did my best and he knows exactly what I believe despite me being able to make a great case for it. This I believe is part of being a Christian; Persecution. I felt harassed and rediculous, but if the chance came again to speak about God I would do it all over again for the Kingdoms sake, but i’ll be ready next time no doubt lolhopefully. It’s all about living for God, and in Christ we see that in living for God we will be persecuted and harrased. The important thing is to stand up for God. I imagin God loves to see a scared little boy attemt to speak for God in a confrontational situation, then see a major theologan shut down every one in his path. I wonder what Jesus looked like to others when he was on the cross. I think stupid would fit right, because he claimed to be God, yet others saw that he couldnt even help himself off the cross. He looked stupid to others just as I had looked stupid to others in my conversation with the Captian, but I wonder what the Father thought of Jesus on the crossproud I assume.

      • Aleishareply

        Hi this comment really ministered to me here in December of 2014. I just asked God to forgive me and to help me to not deny Him and if I ever have to prove He is LLord I don’t care how stupid I look as long as my Father is proud, I LOVE YOU JESUS.

  2. JacobPreply

    Thank you very much for this post! It was very encouraging and uplifting. I enjoyed the insight from the comments too! God bless you all! Praise Christ King of Kings Lord of Lords! <3 Honestly I have been struggling allot. A lot of times I feel like I'm too bad I won't get any better and I don't really believe with all my heart all my soul and all my mind. I get upset cause I don't put him first a lot. If I did I wouldn't give in to lust. I know I love him tho. I am thankful! I know he loves me! I know he forgives even my sins. I don't understand why. I'm very shy and fearful. It's very hard to talk and show that I'm proud of believing in God I already feel like I'm gonna be ridiculed or they won't care to hear or talk about God. Sometimes I think because I get ashamed. I'm not ashamed of Christ. I'm ashamed that I don't have all the answers and I can't explain all the details that I don't know enough. And I'm ashamed I'm not going to represent Christ well. So I get scared and get quiet. I'm sorry I'm making such a long comment. But I guess I'm just saying I needed the encouragement! That I'm not alone! Christ forgives! I honestly think I am a bad Christian and sometimes doubt I'm saved. A lot lately cause I have been using drugs and been lusting alot and I feel like I have fallen. Like because I'm using drugs again and lusting even tho I want to stop truly, does that mean I'm not saved anymore?

  3. Ritareply

    I couldnt stop My tears when i read whats written because i might have denied Jesus without meaning it and iam truly sorry Cuz i love Jesus and i believe truely in Jesus and God and i Will never again deny or be ashamed in anyway. I have never been ashamed of Jesus its just that à LOT of people make me look stupid when i talk about My belive in God and make me feel iam dum or something and that make me not wanting to talk about My belive in Jesus. Thats wrong i Will never do that again i prayed to God and Jesus for forgivness and from now i Will change and i wont deny him in anyway. I love you Jesus and God thank you for iam Christian and iam so proud. Thank you Flaco and jacobp what you both wrote touched my heart deeply. Rita

  4. Latoyah Austinreply

    @JacobP: I’m not sure if anybody else answered your ending question there or not. ຢ່າງໃດກໍຕາມ, I felt led to respond: doing drugs, lusting, pride, etc are habits that come from our sinful nature. They are sins and sin, simply put, is anything that separates us from God. When Jesus died on the cross, He saved our souls. John 3:16 comes to my spirit. ດັ່ງນັ້ນ, you are saved Jacob. ຢ່າງໃດກໍຕາມ, the work is not done b/c now we must invite the Holy Spirit to re-birth usas Jesus told Nicodemus, we must be born again. Romans 12:2 tells us to not be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. And Galatians 5:16 says that if we abide in the Spirit, we shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. ດັ່ງນັ້ນ, ຢາໂຄບ, we are saved; however, we must now allow God to change our old sinful habits, ຄວາມປາຖະຫນາ, and mindsets through His Spiritthrough His Word. We are sanctified, cleansed, and washed by Christ (the living Word)- reference to Ephesians 5:25-26. Moral of the story is JacobP: Yes, you are saved. And Jesus loves you deeply. ຢ່າງໃດກໍຕາມ, the sin in your life/our lives separate us from Him in those areas. We must allow His Word to renew our minds daily and to transform us into His image. We want to be followers of Christ, not just through word and deedfrom our hearts. Can God clearly see you hunger and thirst for righteousnessdo we truly want Him? …I really hope this helps one of my brothers or sisters.

  5. Kerryreply

    My dear friends in Christ,
    I pray things are going well for all of you. It brings me joy to see many express the difficulties of life and the daily struggles to overcome. I am also happy to see others encourage with scripture and love to aid those who struggle. I’ve thought of several points one can use while in a group to maybe help out the insecurity we all share. Look at it this way: we all have a belief system inside us all. To express what is reallyin youtakes courage but when it comes to people slandering you forwhat makes us unique”, is not truly your problem. Do not be afraid to say that your speech offends the God I love. Keep it simple. We can not all be like Paul, but we can be like Andrew. I’ve found the source of love, ພຣະເຢຊູ. I’ve found what makes me have peace: ພຣະເຢຊູ! Maybe when others see you at peace and not participating ingossipwill change even one person. Remember that the praise we really seek is Jesus’, not mans> Keep up the fight, it never gets easier. Lets all of us walk together , fighting the good fight. To God be the Glory!

  6. Katiereply

    @latoyah Austin what you wrote is very true! God does love us and we are saved. @jacobp But we must first confess with our mouth our sins to Christ (this is done through repentance) and then turn from our wicked ways (Ezekiel 14:6). Change does not happen over night and repentance is daily/constantly ,but when we open our hearts and make ourselves available to God to change us He will. I pray that the Lord will meet you right where you are in this walk and that you will begin to hate sin as Christ does. I declare boldness over you that when the test of defending Christ comes around again you will be empowered by His spirit to speak boldly! And help others around you to come to know Christ (you can related to those who have been where you were). God is a strategic God and he does not make mistakes, where things go wrong is when we think we are god and try to make our own decisions/choices in life. I hope you see this and are in a better place now. Also read the bible, God gave us instructions on how to live The New Testament (everything after Matthew) is a great place to start; let it sink in and get understanding before moving on to the next thing.

    I have to ask Jesus to forgive me , i have rejected him in more ways than one out of ignorance, feeling unworthy for forgiveness when it’s not about how good i am, but the blood that Jesus shed was more than enough.

  8. Timmiereply

    Thanks for this. I am always looking for new ways to deny god and this article was a big help in providing me with new blasphemous options. The wholeGod is just another ridiculous myth born of a bronze age society that had no clue as to how the universe actually works.speech gets old after a while. For a time I mixed it up with theThere is no evidence outside of biblical texts for the historical existence of Jesus Christ despite the exceptional job the Roman Empire did at keeping records.and theNo one has to go back to the city they were born in for a census and to pay their taxes. The Romans would have wanted to know where people were living now and wanted the tax revenue there. The trip to Bethlehem is a literary device developed after the fact so that Jesusbirth site lined up with previous prophecy. ນອກຈາກນີ້ຍັງ, the Romans have no records of any such census or taxation.speeches but even those get tired after several dozen times of repeating them to people who can’t be bothered to think for themselves for ten seconds. So once again, thank you for providing me with new and inventive ways to deny the existence of you invisible sky daddy. I fully appreciate it!

    Hi ladies! ພຣະເຢຊູເປັນພຣະຜູ້ເປັນເຈົ້າ! Jesus has turned my life around, I am no longer a masturbater, cutter(self-harm), bully, hater, and everything I disliked of myself. It takes a lot for some people to say about what I said, Fortunately, for me It didn’t because God have forgiven me of these sins and I am not ashamed to tell anyone because it didn’t take anything at all for me to say it and I don’t want my secrets to be a stumbling block to someone. I would like for people to continue with the Lord no matter what it takes and ask him to deliver you from any sins and that you will become the will of the Lord! ຂອບ​ໃຈ, God for your mercy and grace! This topic (3 ways to deny God) was very helpful because I searched up on google onhow can I acknowledge Jesus morebecause I want people to know Jesus is Lord over everything and I want to do more and more for the Lord and this is one of the best ways. I am not ashamed of the Lord and I will serve him for the rest or my life until I turn back to dust. Have a great day and I hope this post helps someone out there! There is power in the name of Jesus, thank you Lord!

    In response to Jacob. I just want to say and I don’t have the written scripture available to me at this moment. But it seems as if you are torn between the Holy Spirit and the things of this world. I’m not picking on you this is just what is mortal beings of Gods creation all experience. There is a passage of scripture where a man ask Jesus of what he must do to be saved and Jesus told him todeny yourself, take up your cross , and follow me.Brother, that is heavy! I do know somewhere in the book of Mark Jesus also saidthat if you do not take up your cross and follow me that you are not worthy of me”. Do I feel like doing that? In my mortal nature I do not. As I have learned of the scriptures and have a clearer picture about the love of God and the sacrifice he made in creating us and then allowing us a freedom of choice of choosing Him and his way or not and then having his Son that lived a mortal life with us for atone only to have him tortured to death because of those times when we don’t follow God, then I believe it is worth it for me to follow what He commanded. Since I have taken the instruction from Jesus and applied it to my daily living I no longer feel a victim of this world and life. I feel I have purpose in living and that I am an important part of this life though it may seem small. God has blessed me with learning and I’d like to say to the intellectuals that science DOES prove a divine Creator. This Creator is not limited to the limitations of a mortal body as we are nor is God creation itself. Let’s take a look at Einstein. Sadly he could not conceive that a divine being could create everything that exist, yet Einsteins findings proved that all matter is made from energy. Energy is not a substance but it is a force. So how then can a force be uniquely be formed into substances and some of those substances become a living creation. There is the proof that there is a God of the universe and we are not alone left to suffer and die in vain glory. God has high expectations of us. This life is a test and we must pass the test with the instructions He has given us.
