The “Eye of God”

Have you seen it?   Did someone send an email to you with the “eye of god.”

Have we lost our collective minds to think for a minute there is some magical power in the “eye of god”? Is this a desperate people’s way of trying to reach out to the Almighty and somehow make a connection?  Are we so famished for the power of God’s word and the intimate presence of his Holy Spirit that we choose to grasp at images and ascribe to them some mystical power?

No wonder there is no collective voice from Christianity. No surprise that even though it bristles the hair on the back of our neck, President Obama may speak truth when he says that America is no longer a Christian nation. 

Perhaps, like me, you read these emails and think…I’m going to delete it. Then you think, “what if it’s right?” It says “whether I believe it or not” pass it on.  If I don’t pass it on will people miss out on a blessing because of my failing faith in the “eye of god?”  Is it a source of miracles or merely a wish-machine?  The email uses both. Of course it cannot be both. Either it is a source of miracles or it is a wishing well where we cast a thought into the universe and hope for fulfillment.

Poppy-cock!  There is no power in a picture. God may indeed counsel us with his eye upon us (Ps 32:8) but to think there is some giant eye in the sky fulfilling those words is a bit immature. Jesus encouraged us to have child-like faith, not childish faith. 

Okay, I’m done ranting.  Decide for yourself.  Here is the photo and the email.

This photo has done miracles in many lives.  
Make a wish … you have looked at the eye of God. Surely you will see the changes in your

life within a day.

Whether you believe it or not, don’t keep this mail with you. Pass this at least to 7 persons.
This is a picture NASA took with the Hubbell telescope.
Called “The Eye of God.”
