Scripture tells us that "they will know us by our love" Nowhere does it even hint at building anything, crosses, church buildings and such included, will please God, nowhere.
But that is what religious church people do. Of course the vast amounts of money they expect to receive from the religious church attendees would not color their thinking? Or would it? I seem to remember another amusement park or two.
Do you have any idea how many people could be brought to Christ with $100 MILLION dollars 100,000,000.00 dollars. If that money was used by the people who donated to this monstrosity to feed, clothe and meet the other needs of people in their community. Or it had been used to build housing for HOW MANY? people?? You can feed 100 people for a week for less than $100 dollars with a filling and nutricious meal of beans and rice.
The real ark of Noah is sitting in Turkey and one day God will allow it to be open for all to see but this monstrosity is a money making endeavor to make religious people feel good . Instead of getting out and doing as commanded by scripture, they are made to feel like they have done their part when in fact it is an insult to the ONE who DIED for them
STOP sending God's money to those that use it for such foolish endeavors as this and GET OUT AND USE IT TO SHOW THE LOVE OF GOD TO YOUR NEIGHBORS IN NEED, God does not care for nor did Jesus die for such, He died that none should perish.
The world, including yours is falling apart, people are in dire need of a savior and if you don't bring Him to them in you neighborhoods to show your love for Him, so they know Him through your love to them, They may never meet Him.
I don't know about you but when I stand in front of the judgement seat of our Lord I do not want to tell HIM , well I gave money to build the graven image called the ark2.
Which do YOU prefer to reply Lord, my neighbor had no food so I shared mine with him, or my neighbors needed help to pay their rent and I shared my blessings with them or a family had no place to stay so we took them into our home and helped them to find a place of their own. or BUT, Lord I gave generously to the ark project?
THEY SHALL KNOW US BY OUR LOVE, BUT ONLY IF THEY GET TO SEE IT PERSONALLY WILL IT TOUCH THEM DEEPLY.
