“If The Lord Is God, Follow Him…”

1 Kings 18:20-22 (New American Standard Bible)

21Elijah came near to all the people and said, “(A)How long will you hesitate between two opinions? (B)If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people did not answer him a word.

When the prophet Elijah made that bold declaration on Mt. Carmel, it was in response to rampant idolatry and the rise of the false prophets of Baal. The effect of that declaration was God’s destruction of 450 false prophets and the unquestionable reminder that He IS God (read the entire 18th chapter of 1 Kings for context).

In an age of rampant apostasy and heresy, we’re faced (yet again) with that same juxtaposition – except some of the “alleged” prophets of God (pastors) are straddling the fence…just in case this “God thing” doesn’t work out.
