How to make God disappear

October 1, 2008

On Jibsheet, I have posted about the bail out and consequences.  My point in that post is that events in life are to remind us that we need God.  When bad things happen, they remind us that there are consequences to our actions.  This leads to repentance, and a desire to do things God’s way.  When there are no consequences, then we don’t get reminded about God, we don’t repent, and we don’t desire to do things God’s way.  In child rearing, there are not nearly as many parents today who are willing to have their kids suffer the consequences of their action.  Should it surprise us, then, that there are fewer and fewer people (of all ages) that don’t believe in God.  We are slowly removing Him from everyday life by removing consequences from every day life.  This is not good.
