O'Brien: pagan Christianity

Wednesday, November 21, 2018
    Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
    —2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 (NIV)
    When we put our confidence in our human formulations regarding how God acts in the world, it’s easy to start thinking in terms of how we can be sure he’ll behave the way we need him to. Anything that hinders us from recognizing that God acts freely out of love for his creation is dangerous, pagan Christianity.
    ... Brandon O’Brien, in a Christianity Today editorial, Sept. 3, 2010 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 29:13; Hos. 1:9-10; Matt. 15:3-9; Mark 7:6-13; John 3:16-17; Rom. 9:15-18,22-24; 2 Thess. 2:3-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may Your will eternally prevail over mine.
