I settled into my nice business class seat with some people here in the church and the flight attendant comes through the aisle and she hands all of us our very own leather kit. Is that cool or what? I open it up, it has a little toothbrush, small tube of Pepsident toothpaste, some cologne, some eye blinders and some nice Lufthansa socks. I though I was in heaven. What a deal. Everything in a nice, neat little package.
I have tried to do that in my life with God, put Him in a package and say OK, God, you’re right there, I have everything figured out, everything is cool. I will kind of walk away from you. One of the popular boxes that man has put God in is something called pantheism. Pantheism says that God is a part of everything. God is grass. God is trees. God is flowers. And we are part of God. Thus if we are part of God, that means there is no way I can make mistakes and sin and separate myself from God and I don’t really need a savior. That is pantheism. You see the omnipresence of God says that God is everywhere, not God is in everything. So pantheists try to limit God, to put Him in a nice little kit.
Also we devise a system called deism. Deists say, yeah, God got the universe rolling, He got it spinning and then He kind of turned His attention elsewhere. I see God’s power but there is no way I can get into God’s presence. Pantheism and deism are responses for people being uncomfortable with the omnipresence of God.
This is a very difficult subject to grasp and get a handle on. It is kind of like air and water.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: C3 Global Aid
