God told Adam in the Garden “THE DAY you eat of the fruit you will surely die” the text literally means “The Day” and Literally means “Die - Physically” But he didn’t let them… God said if someone killed another they should be killed but he didn’t kill Abel he only sent him out as A fugitive and a vagabond and even kept anyone from killing him… God completely looked over all of Abraham’s lies and called Him Righteous… God let Jacob steal the birthright with lies and deception… God told Moses He was going to kill all the Hebrews at one time - but He didn’t after Moses spoke with Him,… God sent an Angel to kill the prophet Balaam but caused the donkey to speak instead… God took an adulterous murderer and made him king of Israel,… The bible list a lying prostitute as one of the people of great faith in Hebrews… God chose a bunch of regular everyday sinning mostly uneducated men to be the Apostles of Christ… - and didn’t pick any from the clergy of that day… God overlooked them all forsaking and denying Jesus Christ at the end when He needed them most… - they all did, not just Peter… God chose a blaspheming murderer of believers to bring the Gospel to the world… and write two thirds of the New Testament… - the Apostle Paul… WHY??? BECAUSE GOD “IS LOVE” AND LOVE IS “MERCIFUL” TO ALL!!!! AND GOD WANTED TO SHOW IT!!! I’d say he proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt, wouldn’t you? Don’t let anyone tell you what you have to do or be to have a relationship with God or even do great things for Him!!!!
