10 But the Lord is the true God;
he is the living God, the eternal King.
When he is angry, the earth trembles;
the nations cannot endure his wrath.
11 “Tell them this: ‘These gods, who did not make the heavens and the earth, will perish from the earth and from under the heavens.”
There are means on how to find out if gold or diamond is real. For gold, these measures include visual inspection for markings using a magnifying glass and checking for discoloration, bite test, magnet test, density test and nitric acid test. On the other hand, to know if a diamond is fake or real, experts advise to assess for high refractive index, reflection of various shades of gray, weighing the gem, using UV light, performing fog test, using x-ray or jeweler’s loupe.
Some individuals believe in “to see is to believe”. They live by sight and not by faith. Since it had been ages when Christ existed as a man here on earth, they opted to worship other gods which they could touch, see and feel. Some make carvings of their gods. Others worship nature, the trees, the rivers, the oceans, the rocks, the wind, the sun, etc.
If real gold and diamonds have certain measures to be identified, let us find out if the god we worship is the real one by these measures:
- Living God. A real God sees, hears and feels. Other gods may have eyes but cannot see, ears but cannot hear and because some gods are inanimate objects, they cannot feel what we feel.
- Record and proof of existence. The Bible tells us about what had happened and what will happen to Earth. It is the oldest book ever existed that was transferred from generation to generation. All the things, the stories and the lessons written in it had occurred while the remaining prediction will soon be executed. Some of the places and proofs were discovered by historians and archaeologist.
- Only a God who is supernatural can execute miraculous things. Healing a person with terminally ill disease, raising the dead and parting the sea are just some of it.
Were the other gods able to perform one? Be wise. Examine if you are worshipping a true God or a fake god. There is only one God in this world, the God that we shall serve, the God who is above it all.
