Lazaroo – Tuesday, December 13, 2011

No comments, Dec 13, 2011

 

Unashamedly pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud to God:

“The temple I am going to build will be great, because our God is greater than all other gods.”
(2 Chronicles 2:5)

That statement wouldn’t be well-received today, Jesus.

Political correctness doesn’t mind that I worship “the god of my choice”

but it demands that I not compare my God to other gods.

Above all, I shouldn’t say my God is better than all other gods.
To the modern ear, that sounds exclusivist.

Come to think of it – it probably wasn’t well-received back then, either.

All those other gods had loyal followers.
They wouldn’t have taken too kindly to Solomon’s words.

So pretty much for all time –

to say that You’re greater than all other gods

is frowned upon
vigorously opposed

and in some places at some times
might even get me killed.

But I have no choice!
I have to say it!

because it’s true.
