I just preached on Romans 1 last week and it was no surprise to see that the gods of our culture are no different to those 2000 years ago…
Aphrodite – the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and sexuality.
Nike the greek god of Victory
Hera the god of marriage and family.
Dionysus the god of wine and ecstasy.
Hermes looks after those who travel.
and so on…
We were made to worship. Romans 1 says not only do we suppress the truth about the real God, we then replace him with lesser things and serve created things instead of the creator. A sad but true analysis of Australia in 2011. Desperately searching for meaning everywhere except the one place we will find it.
