– We don’t need God because we are an ‘advanced civilization’ now
– We don’t need God cause we have enough really smart people
– We don’t need God because we can legislate and teach tolerance for all people and religions
– We don’t need God because we have figured out how to get the world created without Him
What a joke I think for people to think we have ‘progressed’ beyond the ‘need’ for a God. A) we haven’t progressed anywhere and B) its not that we need a God, its that there IS a God whether we like it or not and we need to decide whether we’re going to be on His side or not.
Israel, of all countries just decided not to include God in a memorial prayer. Its little things like these that start the slide. We in Canada removed God from a lot of our schools, took prayers out, removed references and plaques. We’ve done nothing but distance ourselves from what is seen as an old fashioned custom, a deity that has no place or purpose in our modern lives.
We as a people have rationalized away every purpose for God, as if we’ve figured out how to replace Him and do everything ourselves. We think we can solve world hunger with technology, cure disease with the latest and greatest research, prevent wars with legislated tolerance and generally work things out ourselves.
This isn’t new, all through the bible Israel and other nations have known God and decided they didn’t need Him anymore. And He says ‘fine, I”ll let you do it your way’. And He steps back and watches us mess everything up, so much so that we come to a point where we have nothing left to do but repent and turn back to Him.
