More Thoughts from A .W. Pink

One reason why Christ was despised and rejected, was because He denounced religious traditions. Despite the Fall, man is essentially a religious creature. The peoples of the world pay homage to gods of their own devising; and there are few things on which they are more sensitive--than their religious superstitions! He who condemns or even criticizes the devotees of any religious belief or practice--will be greatly disliked. - A. W. Pink

What an amazing statement, and in a sense it is prophetic, in that today the greatest crime is criticizing another persons religion or religious beliefs. I mean today this criticizing is seen as intolerant. It was not long ago that Mitt Romney was calling Evangelicals intolerant for calling Mormonism a Cult... which it is, and has always been seen as, and will most likely always been seen as.

I mean it almost seems like we live in a world where I could say that my Wii is God and I could get a religious holiday just for it...

If you got hundreds of thousands of people to literally bow and worship the Wii, you MIGHT be able to get away with asking for a religious day off for it, out of your own stored leave time. To make it a true national holiday, you would need enough religious supporters (and sympathy from other religions) to control the popular vote.
