The Unthinkable Made Known: A Reason for Thanksgiving

  • Published in Blog

Jesus once said about a group of people “they know not what they worship” (John 4:22).  I think this statement holds true for many people.  So many don't really know the god, or even much about him, that they claim to worship.  If a person doesn't know the god they are worshiping, how can they know what pleases him?  Even greater than that, what is this god like?  What is he not like?  Can you even know him?  These are questions that every worshiping person should ask.  If these questions have no answers in the soul of the worshiper then worship will be completely arbitrary to the worshiper.  At best, their worship will be unpleasing to their god.  At worst, their god doesn't exist and it's all just a figment of their imagination.

Friends

Friends... The word may bring a smile to some or a tear to another.  What does God think about friends?  Are our friends God's friends or God's enemy?  I believe many people have friends that are not really friends at all but really dragging them away from God.  First of all let me say that there are friends and there are acquaintances.  My definition of friends in this post would be someone you bare your soul with, not just those who you speak to every so often.  I guess the word I would be looking for is one that you joined affinity (A natural attraction, liking, or feeling of kinship. According to dictionary.com). I'm talking about the one who you freely talk about anything with.

Humanist or Christian?


Men have always imagined that whatever they perceived as truth is the truth even when it wasn’t.  At one time men thought it was true that the world was flat.  The Bible was always true in showing that the world is round (see Isaiah 40:22) even though men believed it was flat.  Also, men imagined that the entire universe revolved around the earth.  They were sure that all of the stars, the sun, and everything else known to man revolved around the earth.  History has repeated itself.  Even with all of the scientific discoveries, men are deceived in thinking that the whole universe revolves around them.  The heart of the Bible clearly shows that all things revolve around the Son, not man.
