While we mock God by re-defining His most basic human model---marriage between one man and one woman, we are also creating our own "new gods".
At a recent BET "Soul Train Awards" special, actor Jamie Foxx told the crowd to, "Give honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama."
Left wing activist, artist Michael D' Antuono, is showing his painting titled, "The Truth," which features Barack Obama with a crown of thrones on his head, in a position that reminds one of the crucifixion.
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights said, "What makes this display so interesting is the flat denial of truth by so many artists and academicians, as well as their irrepressible hostility to Christianity. Yet when it comes to their savior, President Obama, they not only pivot, they proselytize."
Romans chapter 1 defines our times. "Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God," instead they, "becoming futile in their minds," tried to make God into an image "made like corruptible man" and they "exchanged the truth of God for a lie."
Yes I know, these are a few extreme expressions some will say. Most people don't really agree with these kinds of statements.
Perhaps, but they certainly reflect a growing propensity to mock God and to assume the role of God, when we are not God.
And therein is the crises in America and our communities. It is not primarily a fiscal or political crises, but a spiritual one.
This is a time to stand for Truth. Thanks for standing with us.
