That line brought a smile to my face when I read it at the bottom of a page on an internet site advertising some books promoting a particular Christian denomination’s concept of God. It reminded me of signage I’ve seen often on the back of large truck, “This Sunday worship at the Church of YOUR CHOICE.” We, in America, have been so saturated with messages of individual rights, freedom, democracy, etc that we can’t see the obvious lie behind statements like these. Through this emphasis of individual rights we have inherently given ourselves the rights to create with our own little carnal minds carnal little images of ourselves and call it God. America is riddled with thousands of different denominations each presenting a different concept of God. And it doesn’t really matter which one you go to, according to the sign on the truck, just make sure you attend one on Sunday. That’s the American Way. Well, in the Old Testament, that was call idolatry. Today we can “Have God your way” just like your burgers at Burger King. I made a T-shirt years ago that had on the pocket, “Yahweh, not Your Way.”
America is going to pot. The land is riddled with idols everywhere, idols of the heart. And nothing but a huge spiritual tsunami will bring healing. And it will get rid of a lot of things we are clinging to for dear life. Get ready.
