Likewise, John! I value your thoughts and comments and know that you sincerely wish to worship God in the most Biblical way, and that is our common goal in this discussion.Originally posted by JohnV
Good answers, Andrew. I'll answer tomorrow. I'm a bit busy tonight. Its a pleasure discussing these things with you. Thanks for helping think through this.
I want to add that I am not up for another full-length discussion on this subject, since so much has been said before, and I lack both time and energy right now (there is much going on in my life), but if we can advance the discussion profitably in any way, then I hope we can continue towards that end. I may not be able to answer quickly though either due to time constraints.
I know this thread is supposed to be about Matt's articles, but it seems that we can't help but discuss the issues raised by those articles. This is a Puritan forum and we are speaking about Puritan worship and whether it is Biblical worship. To approach God with a right heart in the manner which he has ordained, this is the essence of Biblical Puritan worship, and if we can encourage one another in that vein as iron sharpens iron, to God be the glory!
