God is good... all the time! We say it, all the time, but do we really mean it?
Yes, God is good, most definitely, and in this 4th episode of God's Kingdom Purpose for Man, we'll prove it!
We'll dig deep into how the problems of life, pain, and suffering do not originate with God or His will for us.
We'll also examine how our false beliefs, corrupt understanding, and lack of faith have lead us into believing lies about our good good Father in Heaven.
In the end, you will understand (and hopefully believe) that you cannot have what heaven has unless you think like heaven thinks.
So, you wanna move mountains? Sure you do. Who wouldn't?
But, the Bible says you need mustard seed-size faith to do so. And for that, you need to really believe that... God is good, all the time.
It all starts here!
P.S.: If you haven't listened to the first episode of this Epic teaching series about God's Kingdom Purpose for Man, you'll want to start here: Episode 31

Give your faith a much-needed reboot into Kingdom 2.0.
"As believers, we are called to a renewing of our minds which will lead us into transformation."
"When we fail to move mountains in our own lives, it is not because God has failed us, it is because we have failed God… though our own lack of faith."
"Only right thinking can bring right believing. And only right believing can make us say to mountains: 'move out of the way'."
"The belief that God causes or allows all the suffering in world has made hundreds of thousand of atheists and agnostics."
"The responsibility for pain, suffering, and death in the earth is not the will of God or the results of God’s actions."
"Before we point accusing fingers towards people like Bart Ehrman or even Richard Dawkins the atheist for defective thinking, let’s consider our own thinking towards God - as believers."
"We, as believers exercise perverse thinking all the time - we just don’t know it. We disguise it as being ‘spiritual’ or humble."
"We cannot have what heaven has, unless we think like heaven thinks."
We have made the grave theological mistake of equating the sovereignty of God and everything happening in the earth realm as being ‘His Will.’
"God doesn’t will the ill in your life."
"We must always keep the Bible in context unless we are guilty of assigning things to God which are not true."
“If it be your will.” We think ourselves spiritual when we pray that way. However, we are only being faithless in the Father’s goodness.
"A mustard seed is all you need."
- Sebastien Richard
"How can we expect anything good if we are not fully convinced of His goodness?"
"How can you possibly receive from God any good thing, if you do not really believe it is His will to give you good things?"
"It all starts with understanding that God really is good. Change this in your life, change this in your thinking, and right away, your life will change. Do not be conformed, but be transformed!"
