The View From 1776

The Worshipful Spirit

Religious worship is more than going through the motions.  Your heart and soul must be engaged.

  1. Jesus said, "You must be born again." ("Born from above.")

    If we are not, then we are being merely 'religious.'
    We are still centered in a carnal ego. Since He is the actual center of all things, our ego is misleading us.

    Jesus said, "You must be born again." We cannot have a spiritual life unless and until we are born of His Spirit.

    Flesh is flesh. Spirit is spirit. The Lord, Author of Liberty and Freedom, will not force or coerce. Each one must choose.

  2. "We have the gift of an inner liberty so far-reaching
    that we can choose either to accept or reject the God
    who gave it to us, and it would seem to follow that the
    Author of a liberty so radical wills that we should be
    equally free in our relationships with other men.
    Spiritual liberty logically demands conditions of outer
    and social freedom for its completion." Edmund A. Opitz
