It Matters to God

"The one who desires life, to love and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. He must turn away from evil and do good; He must seek peace and pursue it." 1 Peter 3:10-11

It is often said -"It doesn’t matter how you worship God. God doesn’t care how you dress, how you wear your hair, or how you worship Him, as long as you worship Him. He doesn’t care where you go to church, what Christian doctrines you embrace or what customs you use to worship Him. There are many ways to a heavenly eternal life."

Does that sound familiar? It may sound logical to the human mind, but it is very far from biblical truth. In fact God commanded that we should be careful to do exactly as He says, neither adding to nor taking away. (Deut.4:2) God never gave anyone the right to worship Him according to the dictates of his own mind, but instead, has always demanded faithful obedience.

There are plenty of Christian teachers today who will tell you that the details of godly worship are unimportant. They will confidently declare that it doesn’t matter what you eat, whether you keep the Commandments, observe the Sabbath, keep the Feasts of the Lord or worship using customs associated with ancient idolatry. Many of the same false teachers who will openly denounce the Laws of God will call you a sinner if you fail to fulfill the Law of tithing. That is the one Law they will preach with vigor. These men are inconsistent at best.

"Woe to them, for they have strayed from Me! Destruction is theirs, for they have rebelled against Me! I would redeem them, but they speak lies against Me." (Hos.7:13)

How had Israel strayed from God? How had they rebelled against Him?

How were they speaking lies against God?

Israel fell into the sin of idolatry and began to acknowledge and serve other gods. They regularly profaned the Sabbath and the Festival Holy Days. And they repeated the lies of their false prophets who declared all is well when humble repentance was necessary to avoid the wrath of God. "His watchmen are blind, all of them know nothing. All of them are mute dogs unable to bark, dreamers lying down, who love to slumber; And the dogs are greedy, they are not satisfied. And they are shepherds who have no understanding; They have all turned to their own way, each one to his unjust gain, to the last one." (Isa.56:10-11) If it matters to God, then it must matter to us.
