Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
A variety of religious thought called Deism compared God to a clock-maker Who created the device we call the cosmos and then simply allowed it to run according to its internal forces. This sounded like good scientific reasoning, according well with Renaissance man. They were also saying that God did not step into the here and now with insight, rescue, comfort, chastening or guidance. This is completely against the Bible view.
The above single verse speaks out loudly. There is nothing good that can be initiated without God. No righteousness. No cleanliness. No praise. No dialogue. He is involved with it all. Today.
He is certainly more than the remote inventor.
