Today’s Reading: Psalm 14:1-4 Version NIV
Many people have chosen to live as if God did not exist. In an attempt to hide or justify human evil, many say, “If God existed; he would not allow the horrible things that happen out there.”
This concept is very old. David already mentioned it in one of his Psalms: “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.”
At the bottom of our hearts, we know of the existence of the eternal God and that is what we desire. From here begins our dilemma: How to get to God, how to escape death? Human beings are ingenious. From this ingenuity arise religions, priests, temples, altars, offerings, and even a kind of fetish. These religious structures create a big gap and generate superstition, deceit and oppression. All of these can and should be eliminated.
God is one and the mediation between God and man is not through things, or special humans. Confused we continue with so many cults, sects and religions. Nevertheless, we can thank God, because his desire is to save all his people through Jesus. Yes, Jesus is the only mediator between God and men.
