My Views on God
I feel that if I should start from anywhere in my quest for self
introspection, then it should be from the beginning. Rather than go into
depth regarding my beliefs in writing, I feel as if it will be more
impactful to make short, simple statements that reflect my beliefs. I
will produce four short chapters below from The Gospel According to
Lisa regarding the subjects of:
1) Evidence as to why I believe in God
2) Authority to speak on behalf of God
3) Gender in the eyes of God
4) Familial obligations.
Hopefully these statements will give all of you more insight as to why I
believe the way I do and why I make the choices that I do. Finally,
please remember that these are my beliefs and opinions and may not
represent yours. They also definitely don't represent the
politically correct. :)
The Gospel According to Lisa
1 I believe in God.
2 I believe that man is created in the image of God.
3 I believe that God organized this earth and all things on it for
the benefit of man.
4 I believe that God did indeed give man dominion over all the
5 I believe that God is as interested and involved in the people
populating the earth today as he was in ancient times when He called
prophets and guided His people through troubled times.
6 I believe that Abraham was a literal figure of our earth's past.
7 I believe that Abraham spoke with God.
8 I believe in the God who spoke with Abraham, which means I
believe in the same God as many major religions of the world.
9 I believe that God blessed Abraham with a birthright that
promised Abraham and his seed a host of temporal blessings, the right to
obtain spiritual blessings, endless posterity, and chosen lands on this
10 I believe that the posterity of Abraham began fighting over the
right to the birthright and its accompanying blessings beginning from
the first generation when Abraham begat Ishmael and then Isaac.
11 I believe that Isaac inherited the birthright from his father,
and Jacob inherited it from Isaac as stated in Genesis.
12 I believe that Jacob's 12 sons and their posterity who became
known as the House of Israel are literal and that evidence of this is
seen today, especially with the Jews.
13 I believe that the Jews are direct descendents of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob, and I believe that the Jews were and are a chosen
people of God.
14 I am not Jewish.
15 I believe that the birthright promised to Abraham was passed
down to Isaac, Jacob, and then to Joseph's seed through his son Ephraim
as stated in Genesis.
16 I believe that the posterity of Joseph is a chosen people along
with the Jews.
17 I believe that the posterity of Joseph is spread out across
multiple races starting with the posterity of Ephraim and Manasseh as
stated in Genesis and not confined to a single race as is the case with
18 I believe that the posterity of Joseph and the posterity of
Judah have blessed the lives of God's children on this earth immensely
through innovation, discovery, invention, technology, medicine, literature, music,
education, and government.
19 I believe that the posterity of Joseph and Judah are demonized
and accused of exploitation by people who fight against the God of
Abraham and feel threatened by His supreme authority.
20 I believe that the current strife and chaos seen in the world
today and significant events throughout history are directly traced back to Old Testament days and the continued
fight over the birthright of Abraham.
21 I believe that to be chosen does not mean that one is perfect
and free from sin.
