“There is a
God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man.”
you haven't learned to call it a "God-shaped vacuum," but Pascal, a
brilliant philosopher, noticed a common fact of existence—there’s
a spiritual dimension in each of us, waiting to be satisfied.
Everyone tries to fill this void; if not with God, then with
something else—relationships, money, career, GAP clothing—fill in the blank.
The insatiable, unsatisfied desires of our hearts reveal that we are
all missing God, even if we haven't labeled the longing like Pascal
did. Have you ever wanted to know God? For a moment at least,
consider the possibility that your spirit has always been
longing for Him.
Now the essential question is, "Do you know Him yet?" If not, maybe
“god” will satisfy my spiritual needs? Can I find god in a church
setting? If so, why does the church today seem so irrelevant?
cultural and religious atmosphere is not very friendly to
those ready to fill the "God-shaped vacuum" in their
souls. In reality, seemingly irrelevant church themes
(“atonement, sin, worship…”) combined with the
cultural ideal of tolerance (“everything is equally true”) is
enough to cause a lot of people to lose interest in really knowing
God for themselves.
However, many people are ready to
defy cultural apathy and religious irrelevance and keep
searching. If you are sincerely
looking for God, we at Cornerstone applaud you! And we have
good news for you—God is looking for you as well.
