I’d Like to Meet I have already met: God
In this techno-savvy age of computers, everyone has a “space”. Both young and old seem to indulge in this form of communication, and at the height of the information board, the person’s “profile” that lists several things about them.
Name, age, location, education, favorite likes, dislikes, books, and other questions are boldly proclaimed across the world wide web. There’s been much discussion about the safety concerns, or lack thereof in many cases, of sharing so much with the unknown. Now, with private “friend” invitations, access can only be allowed to those we “know”…so the communication waves continue, sharing photos, stories, lists, comments and so on.
In many cases, these web pages are much like blogging, minus the uncontrolled advertising. However, I have to give a big sarcastic chuckle when I read a profile that says, “Who I’d Like to Meet: God“, and yet their home page reeks of sinful indulgences.
Blaring rock music, lust-filled web design images, uncontrolled and innapropriate advertising banners, others listed as “friends” who boldly proclaim profanity, rebellion, and share stories of their latest sinful pleasures.
–And yet, they want to “meet God“?
I dare say they have not even begun to realize that the fulfillment of their wish might not be such a joyous occasion!
Why would God want to “hang” with pictures of drunken college kids who do little but lead others far from righteousness? Why would God want to hear noise termed as “music” because that is what’s popular? What would God say about the language that is being openly used and accepted as “cool”? Why is it that we’ve fooled ourselves into believing that it’s okay to overlook the obvious, all for the sake of fitting in?
How would God react to these “adults”, who know better, and many of whom have professed a personal relationship with Him, when they are so weak in spirit and cannot resist the least temptation to participate with such evil?
They don’t want to meet God. The one true God, that is.
They meet their gods everyday, and enjoy the temporary pleasures of sin. Their gods encourage them to stay away from what is right and good, and rejoice when another “little” step is taken further in the wrong direction.
Pretty soon, they are convinced that no harm can come from participating in unholy acts. —Then…it becomes easier and easier and easier to ignore the wrong. Eventually, the line is crossed, and there’s consequences too great to pay.
They don’t want to meet God.
