Why we Worship


Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!

Why Scripture?


Jesus said that he and he alone is the way, truth and the life. No one could get to the Father except through him. But many try alternate routes. It is only an exercise in futility.

Stay On The Main Road

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. Proverbs 14:12

The whole concept of one way leading to God is repugnant to modern thinking. Individuality and freedom are valued above all else. And that mentality is ultimately devastating, destructive and tragic.

Listen to the wisdom of John Henry Neuman as he discusses the ways of a fool:

If you want to travel north and all the roads are cut to the east, of course i shall complain of the roads. I shall find nothing but obstacles; I shall have to surmount walls, and cross rivers, and go round about, and after all fail of my end.

Such is he conduct of those who are trying to achieve some meaning in their lives, pursuing their right to happiness, but refusing to take the well-traveled roads that lead there. They are trying to get to Mount Zion but ignore all the signposts and compass readings, and stubbornly avoid the trails as they bushwack their way through the wilderness.

Do you not see that they necessarily must meet with thwartings, crossings, disappointments, and failure?' They go mile after mile, watching in vain for their destination, but never sighting it. And then they accuse religion of interfering with what they consider their innocent pleasures and wishes.

But religion is only an inconvenience to those who are traveling against the grain of creation, at cross-purposes with the way which leads to redemption.

John Henry Newman quoted in A LONG OBEDIENCE IN THE SAME DIRECTION, page 117
