One God,, One Lord

An idol is nothing in the world.  There is no God but one. For though there are those called gods many, and lords many; yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him, and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through Him.
-         The Bible – 1 Corinthians 10
In a world of pluralism (many paths to god), the Bible insists that there is only one God and one Saviour Jesus Christ  the Lord. I would have thought that advanced humanity  would have stopped worshipping idols that have eyes but cannot see, ears that cannot hear, mouths that do not speak!

In a world of historical  and archaeological verification, I would have thought that people would have noticed the superior credentials of Jesus Christ as Leader and Saviour. Rather than following men that are dead, and whose teachings are often confusing. Jesus, whom the critics fail to discredit, remains distinguished in moral value, in spiritual transformation and in divine claim – the Son of God. 
All who encounter Him ( as many do in reading His words, dreams, research, study, experiences), all bow before Him and worship Him.

Most people I encounter choose to stay in the dark, and do not want to know Him.  This may be due to religious upbringing, fear of the need to change, fear of others etc.  How tragic that for such is reserved the ‘outer darkness’ of eternity without God.

The promise of Christ remains true – “seek and you will find, Knock and it will be opened to you”
