As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."
Thoughts for Today:So what about the Tibetan monks who live their entire lives in celibacy and simplicity? Surely they are seeking God. No they're not, the Bible says none seek after God.
What about Shirley MacLaine? Her inner search continued in her book Dancing in the Light about which she wrote: "I like to think of Dancing in the Light as a celebration of all my 'selves.' It was a fulfilling and satisfying exploration of the promises I made to myself in Out on a Limb. In it I look with pleasure, humor and some contentment upon my experiences as a daughter, a mother, a lover, a friend, a seeker of spiritual destiny and a voice calling for peace in the world." Surely she is seeking God. No she's not, the Bible says no one seeks God.
Then what are they seeking? Perhaps inner peace, maybe a transcendent form of consciousness, even an emotional experience -- but they're not seeking God. The history of religion would say man is out seeking God -- therefore religion in general must be man's search for God. The Bible says it isn't. Man hasn't found out very much about God on his own -- the reason: Because he's been going in the wrong direction -- away from God.
Questions to Ponder:Have you been seeking God on your own? Have you been attracted to the latest New Age books which promise a higher learning or consciousness? Do you think any of this will help you to find or understand God more fully? The Bible tells us "No". The Bible contains all the information about God we need to know. Do you seek God? Then read His Holy Word.
