Where are God's people today?  Our hearts are turned to reason and not to God.  Our apologetic is unconvincing because we say that which we also do not do.  Men say, "Talk is cheap."  None-the-less none live differently.  "The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God.'" (Psalm 14)  So we live like God does not exist.  And we live foolishly as a result.  It is not a matter of the mind but of the heart.  We love ourselves instead of God.  We look to ourselves for what God alone can give us.  God is love.  When we rely on reason for guidance and not on love, we deceive ourselves.  The Truth is not in us.  We walk in darkness.  This is the reason God sent Jesus into the world.  In Jesus was life and the life was the light of man.  Our darkness cannot overcome this light.  But it is true that many did not recognize the light.  They were blind to that which could have given them life - blinded by their own self-centeredness.
