This morning I noticed a post on Facebook. It was from a spiritual website and had 21 Bible verses to encourage people. I clicked on it, and found the site to be attractive and indeed inspirational. Because I am usually looking for such items to share on my own website and Facebook posts, I decided I would subscribe, thereby receiving daily items through my email address.
However, as I scrolled down, I noticed an alarming fact. This site was also offering inspirational items for those practicing Hinduism, Buddahism and Islam, among others! This troubled me and I immediately withdrew my subscription. This is exactly what our world is encouraging now. To tolerate all religions and all gods.
I worship the one and only true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. My Bible, which I believe is God's word to us and was inspired by Him for us to live by, says this:
And God spoke all these words:
'I am the Lord your God...
You shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them,
for I, the Lord your God,
am a jealous God,
punishing the children for the sin of the fathers...
but showing love to thousands
who love me and keep my commandments.'
If we truly desire to please our Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, then we need to be more discerning, especially in this time that we live in. The enemy, Satan, roams the earth, seeking who he may devour. He is trying to distract us from worshipping the one and only true God. It is NOT okay to tolerate other religions. It is NOT okay to look the other way. We need to refuse to endorse anything that promotes other gods.
Do you worship my God, or your god?
