220px A W TozerLEANING TOWARD HERESY

When large numbers of adherents in the Christian churches come to believe that God is different from what He actually is, that concept becomes heresy of the most insidious and deadly kind! When the Christian church surrenders her once lofty concept of God and substitutes for it ideas so low, so ignoble as to be utterly unworthy, her situation is tragic indeed. Into the life and the practices of the church comes a whole new philosophy; and the sense of the divine Presence and the majesty of God is no longer known. Although "morality" is no longer a popular word in our world, it is apparent that such low and unworthy concepts of God's Person actually constitute a moral calamity for professed believers in great segments of Christianity. The records of both sacred and secular history show that low views of God will surely destroy the appeal of the Christian for all who hold them! To all sinners, Jesus said, "You must be born again-from above!" He knew that the gods begotten in the shadowy thoughts of the fallen sons and daughters of Adam will quite naturally be no true likeness of the true and living God!

Verse

The mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken... thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself Psalm 50:1, 21

Thought

The records of both sacred and secular history show that low views of God will surely destroy the appeal of the Christian for all who hold them!

Prayer

Lord, I will except no substitute. You are the one and only God, and my Lord. Keep us from trying to make our image of you fit our own whims. Remind us just who you are.
