The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod on the sabbath Morning, 5th of July, 2009. Elijah calls all Israel to Carmel. Here we have Ahab; a graceless king who is blind to the fact that he is the troubler of Israel; a noble preacher, an example to all preachers; who fears only God and declares the truth, alone, in the face of a murderous enemy. And, an idolatrous, halting, people who had forgotten The Lord Whose Name was once their glory. This sermon is a solemn word to us, as a nation; to our leaders and our preachers and indeed to each and every one of us. How long will ye halt between two opinions?
The text is 1Kings 18:21… And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
If the LORD be God, follow him
