Based on our studies we must first begin by approaching this as a Duality. Consisting of one side good, and the other side bad. Power and powerlessness. Fortuitous and the opposite as unfortunate. Sterile and fruitful. Of course, yes I have not presented these dualities in correct context as in the presentation (title), the title poses a negative first and then the positive. Let us go on……
Remember; Dualities began in the Garden of Eden, how so? With the duality of the knowledge of good and evil.
First, we must see, understand, hold fast that; Ill-conceived worship not only is spawned out of guilt, IE the service of guilt but has no option but to pay tribute to the Human Conscience, therefore……
Ill-conceived worship does not aspire to the throne of God. God is impervious to ill-conceived worship.
It conveys to the true God but one thing only; Our condition, our need. That we don’t, not only “Get the picture”, but are under the thumb of the “Fallen Nature”. In need of Redemption, and that Redemption my friend is provided at the Cross of Calvary. The Son of God, Jesus Christ.
Worships mankind (humankind). It is, in essence self-serving. IE a device fabricated by the human mind (conscience in this case) to secure some ease for the conscience. A pat on the back ministered by devious means. It has been described by the Theologian as “A separate Altar of Worship.”
This is our enemy friends, and this also is why “religion”, rightly so, is under attack from many corners of life.
It also is “Esclavitude” (Spanish word); Slavehood.
The Spiritually estranged watches the ill-conceived worship of his fellow man and though at first, he might conclude “This is a good person”, sincere, well intending, down the road, he might want to expose such a one. Um…….
This above can occur after too much frustration endured from transactions with this individual. For example; Family might experience this.
Now to put this into perspective……
We require seeing that the Void is at the bottom of this; Man being a fallen creature, Voided, not fit for God’s original intent has resorted to inventiveness, his own devices. And so it is that the “Human” conscience creates manifold acts, rituals with add-ons which function in appeasing guilt for trespasses.
All this makes it taxing for us to ascertain the difference between true worship and as to whether or not there can be a True God. Does God exist or not, is God Real?
But God is real!
God does exist. We just have to learn the difference, begin by isolating the “Human Conscience” as opposed to the “God Conscience”; Phil 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus….
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Yes, it is possible that the above doth confuse thee further. But, listen…….
Look at it this way…..
Jesus knew, for all intents and purposes that as the Son of God there was nothing which would be withheld from Him. His father’s love would cover Him. “I got this Son, I got this…..”
While on the Cross; “I got this….” Boom, resurrection came next…..along with exaltation, seated at the right hand of the Father.
Don’t try, attempt to do it on your own, don’t allow a conscience of guilt to promote works of guilt, feeble which attempt to topple down the Kingdom of God, the Stronghold of God. Obtain True Worship, as He describes it in His Word, The Bible. Listen……
The God Conscience is a beautiful thing, and it can be yours. Faith, believing can cause you to soar, but on God’s terms, and not the terms of your human conscience, but the Liberty in Christ. Let God be God.
Remember; He got this…….
