They Found God

The role of the Church is to lead people to God. The role of John the Baptist was to point to Jesus, to be a signpost.

A certain Rabbi once shocked his congregation by saying that Moses was not really much of a leader. They really woke up when he made this statement, which is unthinkable to any Jewish audience. The Rabbi went on to explain that if, when Moses led the people out of Egypt, he had turned right instead of left, we would have the oil and they would have the desert.

But Moses was a good leader; he knew what he was doing. In fact, that's the beauty of the Old Testament story about the Exodus; Moses led the people into the desert and that is where they found God.
