Why ‘Gosinnomore’? Part 1 – Everyone did what was right in his own eyes
When Adam and Eve were created, the Lord left a specific instruction for them in Gen 2:16-17 –
“You may eat freely from every tree of the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die.”
God wanted both Adam and Eve to accept in faith the Lord’s definition of good and evil and not choose to seize their autonomy and define good and evil for themselves.
But the serpent came along and put doubts into the mind of Eve. In Gen 3:1, the serpent asked,
“Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”
The serpent carried on by saying that “You will not surely die, For God knows that on the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Gen 3:4-5).
Both Adam and Eve were, in fact, like God because they were made in his image (Gen 1:26). Instead of trusting God, they took and ate the fruit for themselves.
From then on, they (and mankind) started to define good and evil in the manner that they seem fit.
When Moses arrived on the scene quite a few centuries later and God chose the nation of Israel to bring forth the reconciliation of mankind to him, God started instituting his divine laws into the Jewish state.
Yet, man continued to walk his own ways and whenever they moved away from God, they lived lives according to their own perception of right and wrong. This is best explained in Judges 21:25 when the verse says-
“In those days, there was no king in Israel . Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”
It was octogenarian Josh McDowell, a well regarded apologist of the Christian faith and author of the evergreen bestseller, ‘Evidence that demands a verdict’ and their subsequent revisions, who identified a new trend in the current generation. In the 80s and 90s, university students who challenged him on the Christian faith, would ask for proofs. It is not the same now. University students simply hackled him as a bigot even as he was presenting a case for Christ. The younger population has moved from facts into feelings.
Hence, we are witnessing ‘those days’ again happening before our eyes, with the words of the serpent appearing at the same time with
“Did God actually say.”
People, including Christians, are no more interested in what the Bible has to say but how they feel about what is presented before them. They have elevated themselves to a state whereby they live their lives based on their own perceptions of right and wrong – just like Judges 21:25.
So, they challenged concepts presented in the Bible and questioned whether these were correct in the first place. Here are some examples of what the world is telling us:
- Did God say that there are only two genders?
- Did God say that sex between a man and a woman can only occur within a marriage?
- In fact, did God say that sex has to be between a man and a woman?
- Did God say that Christ is the only way to God?
- Did God say that a fetus is a pre-born baby?
- Did God say that a man has to be the head?
- Does God even exist?
The motivation for the Gosinnomore team is to build a site dedicated to Christians who are prepared to say,
‘My views don’t matter. I want to be guided by what the Bible says.’
The Project Team has meticulously rearranged the teachings of the New Testament into the major elements of Sins, Behaviors, and Doctrines.
It will remove much ambiguity for believers.
Because of technology, we are now able to harness the experience and knowledge of Christians across the oceans to build a one-stop reference site for all to use.
