We have surrendered our lofty (high) concept of God, substituting it for a low Ignoble thought and concept of God. This low view entertained by most professing Christian of today is the cause of a hundred evils we see among the believers in the household of Faith.This low view of God entertained by most professing Christian of today is the cause of a hundreds evils we see among the believers in the household of faith
Pro 9:10. Skilled living gets its start in the Fear-of-GOD, insight into life from knowing a Holy God. (MSG) Psalm 50:21. These things you have done, and I kept silent; You thought that I was altogether like you; But I will rebuke you, And set them in order before your eyes.
A whole new concept of Christian life without any sense of the majesty and the awe of God.
What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. We can’t grow beyond our idea of God. Most people tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward the mental image of God they have. If we are able to extract from any man a complete answer to the question” what comes to your mind when you think about God? We might predict with certainty the spiritual future of that man.

The man who comes to a right belief about God is relived of 10,000 temporal problems.
