Marketplace of Faith

  /   Monday November 18, 2002  

A conversation I had last week brings to mind a problem with many Americans when it comes to faith. The problem manitfests itself in various forms, like the following:

I used to be [insert religion here], but I didn’t agree with them.

I am looking for a church that teaches what I believe.

You need to decide what you believe.

We live in a marketplace society, and we treat our faith the same way. We are looking for what we want rather than what God wants. Rather than trying to find out who God is, we want someone to tell us what we’ve already decided we will believe. In doing this, we become designers of our own personal God.

However, a God who is the product of our own “values clarification” cannot be the God who created us. Such a God must be greater than we are. We owe it to him to learn who he is and what he wants. This should be handled with prayer. We should be forever asking God to allow us to know him. If you sincerely seek the truth, you will find it.
