Today there are hundreds, if not thousands, of false ideas about God. Sadly, many of these ideas come straight from those who claim to be teaching Scripture. In no particular order, here are 10 of the most popular myths about God today.
Each passage can be read by hovering your mouse over the reference. However, I encourage you to also read the context in which the verse is found.
1. God predestined individuals for either heaven or hell (John 3:16; 2Peter 3:9).
2. God is tolerant of sin (Romans 6:23; Colossians 3:5-6; 1 Peter 1:16).
3. God is pleased with any kind of worship (Leviticus 10:1-2; John 4:24; Colossians 3:16).
4. God saves people when they pray and ask Jesus into their heart (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16).
5. God speaks directly and miraculously to individuals today (Hebrews 1:1-2; 1 Corinthians 13:8-9).
6. God is okay with denominationalism (1 Corinthians 3:1-4).
7. God used evolution, over the course of millions of years, to create humans (Genesis 1:24-31; Matthew 19:4)
8. As long as people are sincere, God is pleased with their faith (Proverbs 14:12; Acts 26:9).
9. God is so loving that He couldn’t possibly send “good people” to hell (Luke 18:19; 2Thessalonians 1:5-10).
10. God is whatever you want Him to be (Exodus 3:14; Isaiah 55:6-9; John 4:24).
