This clip from SG-1 is classic ‘What Hollywood believes.’ “Yes, it doesn’t matter what you believe in – just as long as you are very serious and devout about it – that is enough to ‘get you there!”Unfortunately this is just not true. What matters must be the OBJECT of our faith; can they/it actually fulfill their/its promises?
We have a deep longing to be justified so we invent our own beliefs that seem right to us. Unfortunately, if we venture below the surface and really consider our ‘seems-right-to-me hope structures’, we will find gaping holes, bottomless pits and flimsy rope bridges ready to snap under our weight.
Jesus described himself as a rock. Building our life on Christ is the only sure foundation. The bible alone is sufficient for truth about Christ. We can’t just make up a god to suit ourselves – God has revealed himself in the bible.
