Day 262- Economy God

I spoke with an old friend today that told me that he has struggled through some rough times recently. He told me that through "luck" he had been given many opportunities that have allowed him to purchase a house and many other material possessions during a struggling economy. To turn things to a spiritual conversation, I said "You call it luck but I call it blessed. If God exists, then he has been very good to you." He responded, "Well I don't know about god, but if the economy bounces back then I should be in good shape." Throughout our conversation I attempted to discuss the things of God but he would not reciprocate. In this postmodern world where people deny that truth even exists, remnants of modernism still exist. My friend today carried the modern mindset that the supernatural does not exist. He was quite satisfied with his economy god because it had been so good to him recently. So much so that he didn't have time to entertain the one and true God.
