Using My Religion

Dec 4, 2022    Pastor Paul Edwards

With the tragic outcome of Israel's battles with the Philistines, recounted in the first 11 verses of 1 Samuel 4 we are met face to face with the reality of what happens when we presume that the presence and protection of God will always be with us, even when we are unfaithful to His word.

Israel thinks that they can use their religion to control God, to make Him do whatever their sinful wills desire Him to do. They learned the hard way that God will not be put into a box.
