A Perfect God

” This little cheap god we’ve made up is one you can pal around with-“the Man upstairs,” the fellow who helps you win baseball games.  That god isn’t the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  He isn’t the God who laid the foundations of heaven and earth; he’s some other god.”

“We educated Americans can create gods just the same as the heathen can.  You can make a god out of silver, wood or stone – or you can make it out of your own imagination.  And the god that’s being worshipped in many places is simply a god of imagination.  He’s not the true God.  He’s not the infinite, perfect, all-knowing, all-wise, all-loving, infinitely boundless, perfect God.  He’s something short of that.  Christianity is decaying and going down into the gutter because the god of modern Christianity is not the God of the Bible.  I don’t mean to say that we do not pray to God; I mean to say that we pray to a god short of what he ought to be.  We have got to think of God as being the perfect One.”
