No Bull

Wouldn't it be great if we could bend and shape God into the kind of God that suits us best? That's what the Israelites did when they made that golden calf - or probably, it was a golden bull (Exodus 32). The project didn't turn out so well. No bull could ever represent our holy God. And yet, we too, try to find substitutes for God. That is a sin, worthy of death. Moses pleaded the case for the Israelites, or God would have killed them. Jesus pleaded our case, and we too have been rescued from certain death. We look at this amazing story on Sunday, August 21, 10:00 a.m.
