Shallow Christianity

Genesis 28:20-21 “And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, {21} So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:”

Though Jacob was a patriarch and a saved man, his life is recorded in great detail to serve as an admonition and warning to us (1 Cor 10:11). In his old age, he reaped a harvest of heartache because of the seeds that were sown in his youth. His life was “The Soap Opera of the Bible.” The shallowness of his faith and dedication can be seen in his vow at Bethel. “If” God would be with him, keep him safe no matter what, provide him food and clothes, and bring him back in peace to his father’s house, “then” the Lord would be his God. Jacob then left the Promised Land and spend more than 20 years making decisions that would affect the rest of his life. This message, preached July 22, 2012, discusses five characteristics of a shallow Christian, in light of Jacob’s vow.
