Life is good! Who needs God? It’s a path that has been chosen time & time again, even by ancient Israel. God had warned Israel that this would happen, the deception of wealth & pleasure as a force is strong in the human heart. Deut 8:14-17.God often challenged Israel’s fake hearts as did Jesus & John the Baptist before the gospel was proclaimed to the Gentile nations.
Unbelief is a popular choice & a wide gate today. The contentment that comes from God’s provision & our assumed hard work as we turn our backs on the evidence for sin & fill our minds with wonderful storytelling about the past with impressive opinion & alleged facts has many spell bound.
Falling away from God is as old as the hills & those hills are not as old as many assume. http://creation.com/age-of-the-earth.& wealth is not all it’s cracked up to be either. We assume enough money will solve our woes & our intelligence will lead us to a brighter future but without Christ our hearts remain alienated from God & lost to its original intent. That’s humanities map & that’s humanities bearing, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.2 Tim 3:7.
We may turn our back on sin as if it isn’t there & so fool ourselves but God does not, no matter who you are or what standing you possess. That is the truthfulness of God.
