Imagine a stranger from a far off land like India “googling” your name on the internet…the stranger has never met you, knows nothing about you except for perhaps a few scraps of data that might be connected to your name. Then, armed with the information he’s gathered, he writes an expose and biography about you. Silly, huh?
OK, take the next step. “Google” the name of God. Then go through the links (in your spare time) and see if you can tell the difference by the mountain of writings between those who know God and those who don’t. Now, this may not be as easy as you think. What if you, yourself, don’t know God?
Here are a couple of places in this website that speak to the dangers of of the lack of discipleship:
Recently, a friend sent me a piece of correspondence entitled “the gospel according to Judas” that found its way into their home with a question, “Hey check this out. What do you think about this? Maybe it’s time for the old Bible to be updated!” The challenge is, why not? To the one who does not know God by virtue of prayer, intimacy, study, meditation, and obedience…how is one supposed to know whether or not the “gospel of Judas” is part of the Word of God?
Well, think about illustration of the expose about yourself written by a strange Indian…and then ask yourself…Do I know my Lord well enough to be able to discern truth from fiction?
Knowing God Every relationship known to man begins with a person coming to know the other. Knowing God requires the surrender of every understanding, every opinion, every preconception, and the willingness to subordinate one’s own knowledge to the wisdom and knowledge of God.
