The Church today views God Like the Hebrews under The Old Covenant. From the paradigm of the Law, they see Gods love as conditional, God changes his mind, God is not limited by Covenant, God is in Control of good and evil, God gives blessings & life and then takes them away. God condemns and punishes humanity; God is a respecter of persons. The Hebrews had an excuse, the Spirit of God was not joined to their spirit therefore they could not comprehend and see through the eyes of Grace the spiritual concepts Jesus came to reveal about the true character of God. The Church today has no excuse for viewing God through the paradigm of the Law. Fifty million babies aborted every year, millions of women and children sold into sex slavery every year. Millions of children born into areas of drought and poverty that are literally starving to death but here in America our TV Preachers and Bible Teachers have the audacity to tell us God is in Control of Everything that happens in the world. Not only is he in control but also has planned these events in our lives. The Laodicea Church teaches their prosperity message while 70% of the worlds population lives on less than $10.00 a day.

(The Thoughts or Feelings, Mind) 16 Nevertheless When It (The Thoughts or Feelings, Mind) shall turn to The Lord, (Jesus) The Vail (The Inability To See The End Of The Mosaic Law) shall be taken away. 17 Now The Lord (Jesus) is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, There Is Liberty. (From The Mosaic Law, The Yoke)
