"WE WILL NOT SERVE THY GODS"

A vast opportunity is open to every follower of Truth to prove the omnipotence of God, good, and consequently the powerlessness of evil, the supposed opposite of God.

The Hebrew youths Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego, in the burning fiery furnace and Daniel in the lions' den demonstrated the superiority and triumph of spiritual over material so-called power. In answer to Nebuchadnezzar's arrogant challenge of God's ability to save them, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego simply said that God was able to deliver them from the fire and from the king's hand. "But if not," they calmly continued, "be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up" (Dan. 3:18). Irrespective of any danger, unswerving obedience to God, the divine Principle of the First Commandment, was the law and the rock of their life. Serving only the one omnipotent God, good, excluded from their consciousness every possibility of evil and the fear of it.
