False Gods

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 6, 2018

         FOR YEARS I HAVE READ THE ONE-YEAR BIBLE. IT ALLOWS ONE TO READ THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES IN 365 DAYS AND THE AUDIO VERSION NARRATED BY TOM DOOLEY IS ESPECIALLY UPLIFTING. IT IS ALSO A COUNTERWEIGHT TO THE THINKING PATTERNS OF THIS WORLD, WHICH IS PASSING AWAY IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T BEEN PAYING ATTENTION.

         YESTERDAY’S READING WAS IN HOSEA, CHAPTER ONE. THE MINOR PROPHET SPEAKS ABOUT ISRAEL’S UNFAITHFULNESS TO GOD. THE METAPHOR USED IS THAT OF AN ADULTEROUS WOMAN WHO SEEKS AFTER FALSE GODS.

         AS I CONSIDERED THOSE VERSES I WAS REMINDED OF THE NUMEROUS FALSE GODS WE WORSHIP, ESPECIALLY THE GOD OF POLITICAL POWER WHICH, LIKE THOSE FALSE GODS OF ANCIENT TIMES, CANNOT DELIVER. THERE ARE OTHERS, LIKE MONEY AND PLEASURE, AND ONE MIGHT SAY THE UNKNOWN GOD OF INDIFFERENCE. SO MANY NO LONGER SEEM TO FEAR GOD AND THINK IF HE EXISTS HE WILL LET THEM INTO HEAVEN BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE. WE HEAR SUCH EXPRESSIONS AT MANY FUNERALS.

         QUESTION: WHICH GODS DO YOU WORSHIP? I’M CAL THOMAS.
