The Why of the Gospel

There is no such thing as an atheist. Every person on earth believes in a god. Some believe in the God of the Bible, but most believe in themselves.

While they may have a special name for their god, ultimately they are their own god. Every belief system, be it Hinduism, Islam, New Age, Wicca, Spiritualism, Buddhism, Animalism, and even Atheism, is simply a deifying of the human being. We are the answer to our own problem of evil, hatred, and sin in the world.  As Mark Twain said,
“God made man in his own image, and man returned the favor.

In the first chapter of Romans, Paul lays out for his readers the problem of humanity. He describes the exchanges that man has made to replace God with his own desired religion and the fallout of those exchanges. Join us as we continue our series, Romans – God’s Gospel of Grace and Truth.
