THE god OF THIS GENERATION?
by A.W. Pink
The "god" of this twentieth century no more resembles the
Supreme Sovereign of Holy Writ than does the dim flickering
of a candle the glory of the mid-day sun.
The god who is now talked about in the average pulpit,
spoken of in the ordinary Sunday School, mentioned in
most of the religious literature of the day, and preached in
most of the so-called Bible conferences is a figment of human
imagination, an invention of over-emotional sentimentality.
The heathen outside the pale of Christendom form gods
out of wood and stone, while the millions of heathen inside
Christendom manufacture a god out of their own carnal minds.
In reality, they are but atheists;
FOR THERE IS NO OTHER POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVE BETWEEN
AN ABSOLUTE SUPREME GOD AND NO GOD AT ALL!
A "god" whose will is resisted,
whose designs are frustrated,
and whose purpose is checkmated,
possesses no title to Deity, and
SO FAR FROM BEING A FIT OBJECT OF WORSHIP,
MERITS NOTHING BUT CONTEMPT!
