Building altars
Perhaps the Greeks aren’t the only ones with an altar inscribed: “To an Unknown God”. Sometimes we can build a similar one in our own hearts – an altar we have created to a God who is made in our own image and likeness rather than the other way around. It can be a very subtle thing – we mould God to suit our preferences and desires and then we can live a life of self-satisfaction without any sense of guilt. That is why we need to be open to the Spirit of truth and to be able to reflect honestly on what is in our hearts.
