Does God follow his WORD? Or is it --- do as I say and not as I do?
Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Job 2;3 And the LORD said unto Satan: 'Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a whole-hearted and an upright man, one that feareth God, and shunneth evil? and he still holdeth fast his integrity, although thou didst move Me against him, to destroy him without cause.'
From what I have read in scriptures, God does not follow the advice that he gives in his WORD. The above shows him overcome by evil and replying with evil.
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
If we are to emulate God as scriptures say we should, should we too ignore his WORD the way he does?
At the end of days and in many biblical stories of the past, God is overcome by evil and responds with evil while telling us we should respond with good.
Which example should we follow; what God says or what God does?
I think that if God is saying, --- do as I say and not as I do, ---- that that is an immoral example that only a satanic demiurge would say. Yet it appears that that is what God is saying.
Should we follow God, --- or his advice and WORD?
They are not the same. One is good the other evil.
"There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death."
"What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever."
While you are here on Earth breathing His air, eating His food, and enjoying His creation you can repent.
"Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell."
