Not in Man-Made Temples

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Paul told the Athenians that God does not dwell in man-made buildings. Why, this statement would manage to get most of Christendom stirred all out of sorts; but it’s true: God does not live in man-made structures of any kind – period.

Would Paul count our contemporary Christianity – with its proliferation of “Houses of God” and “Sanctuaries” – among the likes of the pagan temples of Athens? Are not these Christian “Houses of Worship” just as pagan, and as heathen as those of Athens? Would he speak the word of rebuke to us as well?

Yet there is really good news in all of this. God does not live in humanly devised architecture. We do not need to “go” somewhere to “meet” Him. For truly,

In Him we live, and move, and have our being (:28).
