God said - man answered

God said, “Do not eat of the fruit of the tree of good and evil.”

Man said, “No, we will eat whatever we please.”

God said, “I am your God. You will have no other gods before me.”

Man said, “No, we will worship whomever we please.”

God said, “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.”

Man said, “No, we will use it as another day to make money.”

God said, “Honor your mother and your father.”

Man said, “No, they are not the boss of me.”

God said, “Do not kill.”

Man said, “No, we will make that a woman’s choice.”

God said, “Do not commit adultery.”

Man said, “No, we will sleep with whom we please.”

God said, “Do not covet your brother’s possessions.”

Man said, “No, it is not fair that he have more than I.”

God said, “Love your neighbor as I have loved you.”

Man said, “No, my neighbor is different from me. I will hate him.”

God said,” I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

Man said, “No, we define truth for ourselves. We will live our lives our way.”

And then man removed God from the public square and from public discourse. Man decided that he was god and that God no longer mattered.

Soon man will cry out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken us?”
