Topic: Biblical Passage: Judges 17:1–18:31
When a product declares to be "just like the real thing"... you know its a substitute. Many times in life we accept a substitute because its less money like a generic brand. Sometimes we accept a substitute because we have to - your elementary school teacher had a baby and so you get a 3 month substitute. Unfortunately, many people are willing to accept a substitute in their worship. Religiosity or Spiritualism is a weak substitute for an authentic faith in the Living God. Regarding TRUE AND LIVING FAITH through Jesus Christ - there are NO SUBSTITUTES.
