Humanity has the divinely-granted skill to create masterpieces of art, technology and architecture without being aware of the Guarantor. Only awareness of and obedience to God Almighty can build the masterful life Jesus Christ modeled while among us.
Author Bruce Catton proved himself a skillful historian in producing a great trilogy of the Civil War. And as an equally ignoramus of reality by saying humanity must “begin believing in ourselves once more.” He expressed caution in believing faith can move mountains. After all, that would involve God’s participation. But he had no doubt that faith in mankind can raise humans to mountain-moving achievements.
Mr. Catton is a man familiar with sums but insists that 2 + 2 equals five. Mankind MUST NOT continue having faith in ourselves while eliminating God in Christ for a very simple reason: we ARE NOT worthy of assuming such trustworthiness. –End Part III-
