The iGod

God made man in His own image, and man hastens to return the compliment. (Voltaire)

(…) I don’t think we have a generation that does not believe in God as much as I think we have a generation that believes in a god of their own making. We could call this the “iGeneration.” It is the generation that has their own god – an iGod, if you will. He is God on demand, God as they want him to be, God as they have fashioned him in their own image.

In Kyoto, Japan, the Thousand Buddha Temple displays 1,001 likenesses of Buddha, each a little different from the others. Presumably, a person could find the Buddha that most resembles himself or herself and then worship it. That is what a lot of people do today when they make statements such as, “I don’t believe in a God of judgment,” or “My God would never do thus and so …” or “The God I follow is not like that.” … (Greg Laurie,  The iGod)
