At the top of God’s “don’t do” list

In the pluralistic culture of 21st century America, we are told to respect all religious beliefs. Having faith in something — anything — is the important thing. The object of that faith is really beside the point.

Point out that a Hindu is lost and needs to come to faith in Jesus Christ and you will likely hear something like this…

“Hey, he’s seeking God in his own way. At least he’s not out stealing and murdering.”

The implication is that stealing and murdering are much worse offenses than worshipping a false god. But, as Phil Johnson points out at the Pyromaniacs blog, that idea just ain’t biblical.

Once again a 21st century American worldview is at odds with a biblical worldview.
