Sermon Illustrations


Years ago I lead this bible study for a group of men, it was a great to study with these guys. We had this one guy who every time he saw something in a passage that did not correspond to his philosophy of life he would say, “That’s not my god, he would never do that, my god would never act that way”. I would always respond, “Your right Tom, your god would never act that way, but that is because your god is not the God of the bible, it is the god of your own imagination. All Tom was doing was refusing the authority of the Scriptures over his life, so he could continue to justify the sin in his life.
