hello I’m Dr Tony Evans with the urban

alternative and I’m standing here in the

midst of the Majestic Rocky

Mountains in every direction you look

the handiwork of almighty God is Crystal

Clear Psalm 14:1 says that the

fool has said in his heart there is no

God in other words to be an atheist you

also have to be a fool whether an

academic atheist or a practical

atheist the concept and

idea of a personal

God you can’t

escape I mean uh who is God he is the


uncreated Creator sustainer and ruler of

all things he is inescapable

the further you get from God the more

chaos you invite in life in family in

culture when you see what this God can

do with the word of his

mouth then you and I should come to the

conclusion he really does know what he’s

doing how to do what he wants to get

done and how to do it

well we’re living in a world today that

has kicked God to the curb oh yeah we’ll

use him for invocations and

benedictions as long as he stays out of

the stuff in between we don’t want him

to manage all of life but he’s an all of


God until we start taking god seriously

that’s what the Bible means when it

talks about fearing God until we stop

marginalizing him wanting his name

wanting his nomenclature but not his

principles not his policies not his

perspectives not his governance we just

want the name so we can have a little we

can have a little religion and feel

better about ourselves we will not be

able to

address the issues that we face in the

world in which we

live the god of creation stands ready he

stands ready to help he stands ready to

heal he stands ready to transform he

stands ready to uh bring things back in

order but he’s only going to do it on

his terms that is he doesn’t exist for

us we exist for him and until we decide

to exist that way we won’t be doing much

of an existence at all we’ll just be

here doing the best we can the Creator

God who is transcended in other words

words he he exists outside of time and

space is also imminent he wants to be up

close tight and personal he wants to be

in your face he wants to be surrounding

your decisions he wants to be defining

what life is what identity is what

family is what meaning is what purpose

is what hope is what dignity is what

Destiny is and what eternity is

of course that’s why he sent his son the

Lord Jesus Christ to get rid of the

problem that would keep us from him the

problem of sin and the good news of the

Gospel is anybody who places faith alone

in Christ alone for the Forgiveness of

sins and for the free gift of eternal

life he will wipe their slate clean it’s

called being born again start their life

over again and give them an eternal

reason for existence he will give them

heaven in the future and his help in

history and time so I invite

you to not marginalize God again the

further God is from an environment

whatever that environment is no matter

how small or how big then the more

chaotic that environment will become as

the Bible says in Romans 1 because they

no longer wanted to retain the knowledge

of God beginning in verse 18

he says in verse 24 26 and 28 God turned

them over God turned them over God

turned them over it meant he let them

live with life with a Divine abandonment

I’m going to let you see what life is

like when you exit me out of it but the

good news is he’s ready to come home

he’s ready to bring it on in he’s ready

to let you see let us see let the

society see let the world see what life

can be like when he’s back in control

but you know what he’s offering that to

us today we better grab hold of God

because if we miss grabbing hold of him

there’ll be nothing left for us to hold


to I welcome you back to the god of the

universe who can create all this and he

can straighten all the stuff out in
