SAFE CHURCH POLICY

FORSTER DISTRICT BAPTIST CHURCH

Periodically our Church runs special programs that attempt to make sharing our love and faith with our neighbours and our community easier.

 

It was a long time ago that Benjamin Franklin penned

“It is indisputable that God loves us and wants to make us happy.”

 

So much has changed since that time, but GOD has not.

He still exists, in fact he never went away.

He still loves us and always has.

He still wants you to find him, he has not hidden himself away

He still wants to love you

He still wants to share his happiness with you.

 

Today we can be blinded to seeing GOD by

 Some short sighted scientific beliefs.  

Big Bang Theory, String Theory with Multi-dimensional Universes,  even Darwin’s Theory of Evolution are just that, theories.  

They may be true, but they are only observing the effects not the cause of creation.   Above all there is no scientific proof that God does not exist.

Weather you believe there is no God or you believe that God is real you are expressing a faith not a scientific fact.  Even Atheists therefore are people of faith, they believe that there is no God despite any scientific proof.

God is not anti-science, He is revealing more of himself and his creation in every scientific discovery.  Remember many scientists still believe in God.

Other events also can close our mind to looking for and finding our creator.

Our own pride or wisdom, it is easy to think that belief is only for the feeble minded, we think that we are too smart to have to believe in God.  

Voltaire, one of the most significant of the philosophers of the Great Enlightment wrote      

 "What is faith?     Is it to believe that which is evident? No.    It is perfectly evident to my mind that there exists a necessary, eternal, supreme, and intelligent being.   This is no matter of faith, but of reason.


Personal issues we face can also cloud or willingness to consider the utility of having a personal faith.  Our own busyness, wealth or personal success, we got where we are without GOD so we think that we can do without GOD.

Our Anger our Grief or feelings of loss,

“If there is a GOD why would he make this happen to me?”

This image of GOD that he is responsible for everything (bad) that happens to me is the exact opposite of the myth above.  

Neither of which are true

GOD does not promise to make us all healthy, wealthy and wise nor does he make us sick, poor and helpless.

 He just wants to share HIS love with us. 

If you have any of these issues we have some

resources that we would like to share with you. 

If you have any feedback on how we can make our new website better please do contact us. We would like to hear from you.
