1. Many decisions are made in life - by 21 we make 3 "biggies"
2. Joshua stressed: (Joshua 24:14-16

YOU decide for yourself.
I have already decided.
3. Read Psalm 115:1-8
God is just an Idea of the mind (Concept)
A. God = all that is good, beneficial to mankind
B. This view of God:
Rejects the existence of the God of the Bible
God is "whatever" you want him to be
Bible is not inspired of God
All rules are subjective, not right or wrong
Man himself is God. (Humanism)
Humanist manifesto, (#1, 1933, #2, 1975)
Humanism says man has "outgrown his need for God."
Rejects: God, Bible, Salvation, Heaven, and Resurrection
Holds to: Evolution, Situation Ethics
Nature is God (Pantheism)
Don't need church, singing, communion, etc.
Just walk in the woods, birds, lake, and fish
Does not deal with origin of man, destiny of man
"Almighty Dollar" (Materialism, Things)
I Timothy 6:9-10
Appetites, Desires, Lusts of the Flesh
Philippians 3:19 "whose god is their belly"
Romans 16:18 Not serve Jesus, but own belly
Recreation, Entertainment, TV (Pleasure)
Galatians 5:17 Not do the things that you would
Teenage pregnancies, abortions, sexual transmitted disease
Set our standards by what is seen on TV, movies
John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, the life;
Matthew 7:13-14 narrow and broad way
Now is the moment of decision
Who will you serve? Who is going to be your god?
