It has been the inclination of man, even before the Fall, to choose worship of anything other than Jesus Christ, the Only One worthy. Why else would Adam and Eve have chosen to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? Besides every sort of creature or cause, they will worship a man of God, as did the Pharisees Moses; they will worship worshipping, as do all religious people; they will worship doctrine, even true doctrine; and they will worship the Holy Scriptures, which testify of Jesus Christ. As they do all these things, they cast Him aside as less worthy.
Consider the alternative to worshipping the Bible: If in spirit and in truth, you worship the Author of the Bible, you’ll be delivered from idolatry and you will understand as never before the Scriptures you’ve worshipped, to the saving of your soul.
Is there any Scriptural evidence that one has only this lifetime to come into harmony with God? Would God damn forever someone who has never heard of the Lord Jesus Christ, having never been given opportunity to believe? Nowhere do the Scriptures support this doctrine. Indeed, they cry out against it.
Are transliterations wrong? Did Peterson compose The Message with a New Age agenda, purposely perverting the Scriptures to support paganism? What does God think and what does He reveal to us through the mind of Christ? How are we, in His sight, to view and use the Bible? These important matters are discussed in these letters, along with addressing the particular spirits and attitudes of our correspondents.
The new birth is one in which we are born of God, born again by His Spirit. Does God sleep? If He doesn’t sleep, and we are in union with Him, born of His Spirit, then how can we ever sleep? Yes, in body we sleep - our outer man perishes - but our new birth in Christ precludes death or sleep of the inner man.
