Glow in the dark cats. What's next?

What are we to think of scientist who have cloned cats to glow-in-the-dark? In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. By Him was all things created! Man has decided that he has the power to create things. The more man feels this, the less likely he is to feel a need for God as he will see himself as god. The Mormons teach that we can all become gods. They teach that if you live a good life, get married in the Temple and have several children, that you can become a god of your own planet. Why wait? Why not become god of this planet? That seems to be the thought going around these days.

Why not be god?

Because there is not one person who is good. Every person is full of sin. Not just one sin, but completely wretched in God's sight. We are all guilty of being liars, thieves and adulterers. We have all failed to put God first in our life, thus meaning we have created a god to suit ourselves. We have not always done what our parents told us to do, thus dishonoring God. We are guilty of breaking all Ten of the Ten Commandments. Regardless of whether you are a Mormon, a Jehovah's Witness or involved in another one of many cults, regardless of whether you are a church-going Christian or one who "believes" but does not feel it is necessary to go to church, we are all headed to hell because of our sins.

What can you do?


It is not what "we" do. It is what God has already done for us. He sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins. He took the complete wrath of God while on the cross. Remember that Jesus was 100% God and 100% Man. Many religions do not understand this truth. But the Bible does not lie. Jesus fulfilled all of the prophecies that spoke of Him in the Old Testament. (by the way, there is nothing in the Old or New Testament that foretells of another prophet coming in America!)

We must put our faith and trust completely in Jesus of the Bible. Not of a Jesus created by Joseph Smith or others. But by the Bible! Mormons teach that the blood of Christ is not sufficient to cover ALL of our sins. The Bible teaches something completely different. Jesus is the ultimate sacrifice. His blood covers the sins of all people. There is nothing we can do apart from the shed blood of Christ to enter heaven.

We need to repent of our sins and be obedient to the Word of God. We cannot and will not ever be a god ourselves. You are believing a lie if you think you can. Or, hey, maybe you can create glow-in-the-dark humans so you can always keep an eye on them at night!!
