Politics: Our “False god”

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 24, 2020

         IN MY DAILY BIBLE READING I AM AGAIN ENCOUNTERING THOSE MANY FALSE GODS THE ANCIENT ISRAELITES WORSHIPPED INSTEAD OF THE GOD WHO BROUGHT THEM OUT OF EGYPT AND PERFORMED MANY MIGHTY WORKS BEFORE THEIR EYES.

         IN MODERN AMERICA TOO MANY ARE WORSHIPPING FALSE GODS, INCLUDING I FEAR TOO MANY CHRISTIANS.

         ONE DOESN’T NEED TO SETUP A GOLDEN CALF OR ASHERA POLL TO WORSHIP A FALSE GOD. IN TODAY’S AMERICA, OUR FALSE GOD IS POLITICS. THE TV NETWORKS AND NEWSPAPERS ARE CONSUMED BY IT. IT’S ALL TALK RADIO HOSTS TALK ABOUT.

         HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THE VERSE THAT SAYS ANYONE WHO IS A FRIEND OF THE WORLD CANNOT BE A FRIEND OF GOD? AND, DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND. AND, PUT NOT YOUR TRUST IN PRINCES AND KINGS. MORTAL FLESH CANNOT SAVE.

         IS IT IMPORTANT WHO LEADS OUR NATION? YES. IS IT PARAMOUNT? NO. JUST AS WITH THE VIRUS, IT IS LESS IMPORTANT HOW MANY YEARS WE SPEND ON EARTH AND OF GREATER IMPORTANCE WHERE WE ARE HEADED AFTER WE DIE.

         LET’S STOP WORSHIPPING POLITICS AND TURN OUR ATTENTION TO THE ONLY GOD THERE IS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
