Job 21: 14-15 ” Yet they say to God, ‘Leave us alone! We have no desire to know Your ways. Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him? What would we gain by praying to Him?’ “

So why is it that the world is not attracted to the things of God?  Instead of being drawn to Him, they’d rather say, “Go away!”  The answer can be found in Jeremiah 9:6 where it says, “You live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge Me, declares the Lord.”  Our carnal nature tells us we are independent self-made people who don’t need anybody’s help.  Couple that with all the world’s misleading and deceptive ideas and it’s no wonder we would have no desire to worship God.  Deception tells me I’m the center of the universe…the Truth bears witness that I’m not…and I don’t want to admit that.
