FAST FOOD FAITH


“Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58


Deconstruction.


I’ve been hearing this word a lot lately from famous Christians who have taken a step back from their faith and are analyzing all the areas they may not agree with.


It breaks my heart to think that they are led to believe they can take apart pieces of foundational truths and do away with what is too hard for them to believe.


Almost as if they have a menu of Christianity and can pick and choose what they want in their happy meal:


Let’s have “nice” Jesus - hold the turning-the-tables-in-anger moment. Add in some Bible scripture - but leave out the hell parts. How ‘bout some God in the Garden of Eden - but not the part where He kicks Adam and Eve out. Because “my” God wouldn’t do that. And to complete my Happy Faith Meal, throw in Eternal Life but remove the Eternal damnation part.


This is Burger King y’all…“Have it YOUR way.”


Don’t get me wrong, it’s good to ask questions. It’s good to know what we believe and why we believe it. But there’s a dangerous path we take when we skip the narrow road to try and make our own. (Matthew 7:13-14)


Where do you find yourself?


Are you standing in the line for Fast Food Faith or are you willing to give up convenience and cheap replacements for the real thing?


We need to be asking ourselves these two questions:


How do we see God?


and


What is our faith founded in?


1. HOW DO WE SEE GOD?

Do we have a healthy view of who God is? If we don’t see God fully for who He is, then we are unable to see ourselves as who we really are.
