-More people trust Google than God!


-More people trust Google than God!  So found one recent survey. “I saw that. I was very grumpy about it. Google always gives me the wrong answer. They`re out to make money out of us” said Archbishop Justin Welby when this finding was put to him in an interview. But surely the finding is unsurprising. People have always tried to make a god in their own image. At one time people made idols. More recently it was a “Pik `n` Mix” god, now it`s cut and paste: only technology has changed not the human heart. When God made his masterpiece-us before we turned against him and went our own way- he made us in his image. God`s intention was that we should be like him. A likeness that includes being morally aware, able to communicate and free to choose. But we chose to ruin it. However God did not leave us to stew in our own juice, instead he sent his only son Jesus who is “the exact representation of his being” and ”the image of the invisible God”. Jesus said he was the way, the truth and the life; a claim God validated when he raised Jesus bodily from the dead. Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our wrong doing. If we admit to God that we are in the wrong, thank Jesus for dying for us and become his disciples, then he puts his Spirit within us and begins to remake us in his image and we discover how trustworthy God is.
