All the Wrong Worship


Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in thee.  ~Augustine

If I see her image on Yahoo News one more time when I log into my email I am going to explode.  The sickening fascination with Angelina Jolie is maddening.  I can’t imagine that I am the only one who doesn’t care about whether Jolie and her jet-setting husband prefer a bidet to compliment their traditional toilet.  It’s insane. 

Worship at the alter of Hollywood is unprecedented.

We worship our bodies, our sports, our entertainment, our money, our hobbies, our pets, our houses, our sex, and even our kids, before we do God.  Man and all his trappings get our attention over a loving, holy, and all-powerful God.    

Disease of every sort and every ailment known to man abounds—with the worst being a poverty of the soul that only the worship of God can satisfy.

So God said, in effect, “If that’s what you want, that’s what you get.” It wasn’t long before they were living in a pigpen, smeared with filth, filthy inside and out. And all this because they traded the true God for a fake god, and worshiped the god they made instead of the God who made them—the God we bless, the God who blesses us. Oh, yes!

Worse followed. Refusing to know God, they soon didn’t know how to be human either—women didn’t know how to be women, men didn’t know how to be men. Sexually confused, they abused and defiled one another, women with women, men with men—all lust, no love. And then they paid for it, oh, how they paid for it—emptied of God and love, godless and loveless wretches.  ~Romans 1:24-27, The Message
