I nearly always worry when I write about current events. I try to be careful, lest I unintentionally misrepresent facts about the event. I also worry that a reader will misunderstand my what I have written. My goal on any topic is always to speak truth and point people to God’s word. It is always right regardless of popular opinion. For today’s email, I have included my sources. So check the sources if you want. You will find that what I have written is correct. We live in a world that has gone crazy.

“The Story of God” is one of the highest rated programs ever on the National Geographic Channel. It is hosted by Academy Award winner, Morgan Freeman.

Freeman says he has hopes that the series will unite people of different religions (Source: The miniseries follows Freeman to twenty cities in seven different countries in a quest to find answers to the mysteries of faith.

The actor said, “We’re not as different as we might think we are, we’re all seeking the same thing and asking the same questions, and basically coming up with the same ideas about who we are, what we are, and where we are going.”

The series has been described as Morgan Freeman’s personal journey of faith. While that may sound good, it is not likely that his journey ends up at the same place where you might be. Why not? Because we are not “all seeking the same thing…and coming up with the same ideas about…where we are going.”

Freeman, like so many of the Hollywood elite, is a product of the age of relativism. Relativism is the belief that all beliefs are the same; that truth is whatever we say it is; that there is no such thing as absolute truth or right and wrong. In religion, it is the belief that “all roads lead up the same mountain.”

In an interview with, Freeman was asked, “Did we invent God.” His reply, “Yes.” He went on to say that there is no hard evidence for God. “I think we invented God. So if I believe in God, and I do, it’s because I think I’m God.”

That’s what he said. “I think I’m God.” Makes me wonder…Is Freeman related to Shirley MacLaine?

Do we live in a world gone crazy or what?


It just might be the case that “The Story of God,” at its best, is going to be a distorted story. Dare I say, that it might not be the truth about God!

If you really want the story of God, you have to look in the place where God has revealed himself. While He has revealed His existence and power in the creation (; ), His will can only be known through special revelation. The sixty-six books of the Bible contain all that we can know about God’s will. The Bible, then, is His special revelation where He makes known His character, His mind, His will and His counsel for mankind.

Without the Bible, we know nothing of the story of God as it applies to our lives.

Read your Bible. It’s an idea whose time has come! (Actually, it’s an idea that has been around for a long, long time. But we seem to have neglected it.)

Blessings to you.
