2 Questions to Consider:
Can we find what we are looking for in anything other that God?
Are the objects of trust better?
Do we think He cannot do what He promises?
Our fulfillment, purpose, and meaning in life
Do we think we can get away with it?
The danger of using God as a “token of religion”
I am a Christian, but I am going to do what I want
Do we really think God will allow such hypocrisy?
