- The God You Know Determines The Places You’ll Go!
Misconception #1: God Is Unreasonable.
“‘…You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden — except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.’”…“‘Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?’” Genesis 2:16-17 & Genesis 3:1b

“The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.” Psalm 145:9
Misconception #2: God Is Unreliable.

“Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.” James 1:17
