248 God’s Basis for Condemning People

Verse 1

When God was still yet to appear as flesh,

the measure of if man opposed God

was if he worshiped the unseen God in heaven.

But this was never a practical measure,

for man was not able to see God,

nor did he know the image of God

or how He worked or how He spoke.


Chorus 1

Since God had yet to appear to man,

man believed in God vaguely.

But no matter how man believed

or saw God in his imagination,

God did not condemn man

or demand too much of him,

for man was completely unable to see God.


Verse 2

When God becomes flesh and comes to work among men,

all hear His words, see His deeds in flesh,

and their notions of Him become foam at once.

Those who have seen God appear in flesh,

if they willingly obey, they shall not be condemned.

Those who stand against Him shall be God’s opponents,

they’re antichrists, enemies standing against Him.


Chorus 2

Those who have notions

but obey won’t be condemned.

God condemns man not for his thoughts

but actions and intentions.

If God condemned man

for his ideas and his thoughts,

nobody would escape the wrath of God.


Bridge

Those who stand against God incarnate

shall be punished for disobeying.

Their opposition stems from their notions of God.

They knowingly destroy the work that God does.

They’ll be condemned not just for notions but for disruption.

Those who do not willfully disrupt the work of God

shall not be as sinners condemned.

They are able to obey, from any disruption they stay away.

People like this shall not be,

people like this shall not be condemned.


Chorus 2

Those who have notions

but obey won’t be condemned.

God condemns man not for his thoughts

but actions and intentions.

If God condemned man

for his ideas and his thoughts,

nobody would escape the wrath of,

nobody would escape the wrath of God.
