The World Cannot Imagine an Infinitely Big God, So It Creates a Limited God

The problem with the world today is that it cannot imagine an infinitely big God, so it creates a limited God.  The world cannot imagine the beauty of God, so it settles for the beauty of the world.  The world cannot imagine that God is infinitely satisfying, so it settles for the finitely satisfying.  The world cannot imagine that God requires their love and not just their acknowledgement, so they do not love him and head down the path of death.  The world cannot imagine that true freedom is freedom for righteousness, so it considers slavery to sin to be freer.  The world cannot imagine that the steadfast love of the Lord is better than life, so it clings to death.  The world cannot image the hideousness of sin, so it takes sin very lightly.  The world cannot imagine the infinite stakes in life, so it takes heaven and hell lightly.  The world cannot imagine that to suffer for Christ is better than comfort for oneself, so it fails to risk.  The world cannot imagine that God will dance over the righteous, so it creates a God who is dispassionate about obedience.  The problem with the world is that it cannot imagine and that it does not wish to imagine and that it cannot listen and that it will not listen.
