As a believer, the fact that there is a God, that He is my Creator, and that He alone determines the absolute truths about right and wrong, are so clear and so obvious to me that I have a hard time understanding how someone could not see the same thing. Forget about all of the theology, the religious ordinances, I am just talking about the fact that God exists and that I have an obligation to recognize that.
The simple fact that we exist screams out to me that there is a Creator. To believe otherwise requires so much faith in the feeble knowledge of man that it becomes a religion of its own. It is a religion born out of the desire to feel good about living a life that you know is against the will of God. There can be no other reason for rejecting what is so obvious. It certainly is not based on objective science.
So how did man fall so far from worshiping God and what are the consequences of that rejection? That is the topic of our lesson today.
