248 God’s Basis for Condemning People

Intro

When God was not yet flesh,

man’s opposition to God

was based on if he worshiped

the unseen God in heaven.


Verse 1

This measure was not practical,

for man could not see God,

nor did he know how God

looked, worked and spoke.

As God had not appeared to man,

his belief was vague,

without notions against God.

Man imagined much about Him.

No matter what man’s belief,

God did not condemn man

or make great demands of him,

as man was unable to see God.


Chorus

God condemns man

based on his intentions and actions,

never for his thoughts and ideas.

If God condemned man for

his thoughts and ideas,

no one would escape the wrath of God.


Verse 2

When God works in flesh,

all behold and hear Him,

all see His deeds in flesh,

then man’s notions become foam.

Those who’ve seen God in flesh

won’t be condemned if they obey.

Those who willfully oppose Him

shall be called opponents of God.

These are antichrists, enemies

who stand against God.

Those who have notions but can obey

will not be condemned.


Chorus

God condemns man

based on his intentions and actions,

never for his thoughts and ideas.

If God condemned man for

his thoughts and ideas,

no one would escape the wrath of God.


Verse 3

Those who stand against God incarnate

shall be punished for not obeying,

their opposition stems from

their notions of God.

They knowingly destroy God’s work.

They don’t just have notions,

but act to disrupt God’s work,

thus they will be condemned.

Those who don’t willfully disrupt God’s work

shall not be condemned,

for they can obey and stay away from

disruption and disturbance.


Pre-chorus

People like this shall not be condemned.


Chorus

God condemns man

based on his intentions and actions,

never for his thoughts and ideas.

If God condemned man for

his thoughts and ideas,

no one would escape the wrath of God.
