ice cream theology
Now that my wife and I have lived one year in the city of Chicago and four years in the west suburbs … there is one thing I know for certain. The location of the best ice cream shops. I just listed 13 total. In addition, most of them usually have a “flavor of the week”.
I believe it is perfectly OK to promote ice cream with passion. So if changing the “flavor of the week” every week satisfies the customer … especially me … hey … do it. Regarding ice cream … there are no rules.
Lately however, I have seen the same approach to spiritual matters. Some call it religion.
One week this is the favorite and most popular way to believe. Next week, make a few adjustments, then add a new twist to your “belief system”. How are the Hollywood stars or famous athletes worshiping these days ? Let’s give that a try. The “be good-do good” religion is really popular in the cool circles. Let’s jump on board.
The only ingredient in ice cream that really matters is milk … leave milk out and it simply is not ice cream. The only ingredient in a relationship with God that really matters is Jesus Christ … leave Him out and your worship is worthless. Is this my opinion ? No. This is God’s plan and He promotes it in a book. Regarding eternal spiritual values … God make the rules.
“… God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
1 John 5:11-12
