It's All About Billboards, Bumper Stickers, and a Book

Christians can't argue someone into a relationship with Jesus--though some comments at Out of Ur suggest otherwise. Christians can share their experience, explain their new view of the world. And it isn't new age double speak when David Fitch talks about "proclaiming the reality of the world."

My five-year-old daughter read a billboard this weekend for real estate. Their tagline:
"It's all about you."

A few minutes later we stopped behind a car with a similar bumper sticker. She read:
"It's all about me."
These sentences are lies. It isn't all about you or me. The world doesn't revolve around any of us. We aren't gods. And we can't define our own gods.

I've heard people ask questions like, Why worship the God who destroyed the world in a flood? Why worship the God who allows hell to exist? Why worship the God who gives us the freedom to reject him? Because he is the only eternal God.

Or as my daughter put it, "Those people are silly, Daddy. Don't they know it's all about God?"

(True story about C. J. from this past weekend in Galveston.)
