Are We Tourists in the Presence of God? Visiting Only for Short Moments?

Everyone likes to visit the mountains, and many think that they would like to live on the mountain, but few know until they live there that life on the mountain can be subject to extreme weather conditions, more so than in the valley.

In the valley, the weather seems to be more pleasing. That is why so many people prefer to live in the valley and not the mountain. Large, exciting, metropolitan cities are built in the valley, not on the mountain top. The valley is where we have all of our shopping centers and entertainment complexes.

Like tourists, we like to visit the mountains on occasion, but perhaps we do not want to live there.

Are we like that with the presence of God? Are we tourists who like to visit, take a few pictures, but after a short time, return to our home the valley? We like the clean air, appreciate the quiet nature, and enjoy the view, but when it comes to what we are comfortable with, do we prefer to return to our lives in the valley?

In this short video, we dig – yes, we actually dig – a little deeper.




Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
