Signs of the Times

Ray L. Henthorne in Front Rank St. Louis, Missouri

Have present-day Christians lost God from their vocabulary and faith? Sometimes it seems so. Sermons are preached that recognize no God beyond Jesus Christ. Prayers are prayed to Christ [Jesus], and he is the object of worship. Perhaps this is a heresy of our times, and it is a dangerous one. Too many Christians have substituted Jesus Christ for God.

Jesus is the Son of God. He is Lord and Saviour. He is the revealer of God. He performed a unique role in the plan of God. But he is not God....Jesus worshiped God. He prayed to God. He called men to a right relationship with God. We ought to do the same. If we have substituted Jesus Christ for God, we have done something that neither God nor Christ [Jesus] intended.
