Two Altars (2008)

Which altar are you worshipping at today?

While Ahab was King, the prophet Elijah prayed that God would bring judgment on Israel that would lead to repentance. This culminated in a showdown between two altars. The first: the altar of God. The second: the altar of Baa (i.e. the god of prosperity). Many Israelites prayed, wept, pleaded, and offered the sacrifice on the altar of Baal. But, there was no answer. Finally, God’s fire came down on his own altar.

Many Christians today are worshiping at Baal’s altar, and not God’s because they’re more interested in lifestyle than Jesus. Are you one of them?
