I did it again, i stirred up some trouble to get some reaction. Recently I received a tweet from zack moody
saying “Worship must be based on truth. Not what we want God to be.” I responded to this by saying “what happens if the truth is what we want it to be and not what God wants it to be? How do we find truth?” I asked this question in passing, seeing what he would say. After some thought he decided to write a blog post about the question asked. Go and read what he has to say here
Much like zach, I have a hard time responding to this question as well. I struggle with this because often times I think a lot of our truth is defined by what we want it to be. I think this is one of the major struggles we bring into the text, trying not to bring our own filter or “eyes” into the text.
So I bring the question to you this week,“what happens if the truth is what we want it to be and not what God wants it to be? How do we find truth?”
By the way, I really do not like the smashing pumpkins, they just came up on pandora, thumbs down added.
