There’s a common misconception that both Christians and non-Christians have when approaching the Bible and it is this: the Bible was written for us. Yes, for me. It was written as a How to Lead a Good Life book, it was written so that we can criticise it, it was written so that we could have something to hate, it was written entirely and exclusively for our benefit.
Yes, yes, yes I've not updated my blog for over a week. I'm really busy with essays and other stuff as well.
And my workload is not getting lighter soon so it may be another week before I update this again.
But I'm working on a piece on biblical man and womanhood. So that should be here soonish.
I choose a really bad time to run a good ads campaign. If you are because of an advert I'd encourage you to look around and make yourself at home. Have fun!
This question crops up from time to time and is, naturally, totally the wrong question to ask. Because what the question really means when people ask it is: ‘Why do I have to bring myself down to worship God?’ or in some cases I get the impression that people are asking: ‘why doesn’t God worship me?’
But despite it being asked from completely the wrong motives I think I’ll go ahead and answer it anyway:
“Day and night they never stop saying:
‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.’
Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Revelation 4 v 8 – 11
