Make & Model

God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on petrol, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself. Mere Christianity. C.S.Lewis

I seem to recall Golden Fleece, Tiger in your tank Esso & Ampol growing up as a kid. The unmistakable smell of leaded petrol, and man’s inventions change but man remains the same, in need of the saviour God. Yes we imagine we can go it alone, all those people, a man-made religion with a tweek here & there & everything will be OK, no need to worry & the faith of materialism & all aboard the big red bus of personal freedom, tickets please. 

There are a lot of servo’s out there, various fuels & car manufacturers too, strict instructions, authorised dealers, safety warnings and the like... Avoid catastrophic engine failure. Only God’s promises will endure.We are made by God, in His image & are not a freak of nature of no set purpose.
