[quote=jjwilkman]i need some one to explain this to me, i don’t understand. how can a God of Love do this in the Christian era. i have said things that i haven’t to been able to comply with, does that mean that i will be struck down by a bolt of lightning???
this passage is completamently incomprehensibly to me.
I’m assuming you are talking about the sins of Ananias and Sapphira…
Their sin was in appearing to look like believers by ‘tithing’, but in fact, in their hearts they had denied God. This message is telling us that you can do everything you can to appear to be believers, but you need to be believers in your heart. In other words, love your God with your entire mind, heart and soul.
Does that help?
