Instagram preachers, Choose-Your-Church™️, televangelists flying private planes… In today’s society, we have our choice of exactly how we want to engage with God. We can have as little (or as much) of God as we want to. It sometimes feels as if life is billed to the masses as a great vending machine: insert the right sequence of coins, and you can have anything you want. The problem is, we are poor. We are born without any ability to pay. So, we learn from a young age: we steal those coins from others. We bury what coins we find. It is no wonder the world is so evil, dark, and mean. We live our whole lives to feed the machine, the machine of selfish desire.
