Religion & Spirituality
Many churches are struggling with a worship disorder.
Even contemporary churches. Raised hands and emotional responses are not the measure of true worship, according to Tracy Meola. In Worship (Dis)order, Meola explains
Christian worship didn’t begin with the church in the book of Acts
Music and the arts are expressions of worship, but not worship themselves
A little-known parable in Hebrews 9 points us to the way God wants us to experience worship with Him
The Old Testament tabernacle serves as the pattern for New Testament worship. Within the tabernacle we experience God’s holiness, mercy, forgiveness, and, ultimately, His restoration.
When we worship from God’s point of view, He is glorified and we are changed—but without the often-used gimmicks and hype that draw people to themselves rather than God.
