Some notes from N.T. Writes “Speaking of God in a confused world” MP3
Our world has been worshipping other Gods without naming them as such. Mammon, the god of money. Aphrodite, the god of erotic love. Mars the powerful war god, who says, go and drop a bomb and all will be well. We have offered to these gods sacrifices, because they have demanded them, and many of them has been, and still are human sacrifices. Regardless if we call these divinities gods or not, or realizes we are worshipping them or not, it is our absolute allegiance to them coupled with intellectual epicurism that allows us to ignore them, that lies near the root of much of our confusion.
