The True God
| It is interesting to
learn that wherever man is found he is a worshipping creature. Somewhere
in his past the concept of a superior being existed. But everything called
"god" is not a god at all but a substitution for the one true
and living God of heaven that made all things (1 Th. 1: 9). The Psalmist
wrote, "For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made
the heavens" (Psalm 96: 5). Prior to that he wrote, "For the
Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all
gods" (Psalm 96: 4). Man has good reason to respect the true God of
heaven because He is man's Creator and will be his Judge through Christ
(Acts 17: 31).
With the abundant and indisputable evidence of the reality of God (Psalm 19: 1) and the testimony of inspired men regarding Him, how foolish it is for frail men in their haughty human wisdom to declare "there is no God" and thereby proclaim themselves to be fools (Psalm 14: 1).
