An Incense Offering

Come let us worship and bow down.  Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. Psalm 95:6

Truth is not merely propositional: He is a Person.

It is not popular to speak of heresy today but we must.  When we speak of heretical ideas we  fail to put them in the context of relationship; heresy tears at the integrity of relationship. Heresy is not merely a false idea, it is a lie about God and our relationship with Him. All heresies are deleterious and many are fatal because they alter the substance of the covenant and misshape the relationship we have with God

The basic heresies surround our understanding of who Jesus the Christ is (God-man) and the nature of the Holy Trinity. Many balk at the language of the Athanasian Creed that says… “whosoever will be saved must thus think of the Trinity…” but the issue is one of true worship, worshiping the true God, the Triune God, the One who is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The Trinity in unity and unity in Trinity must be worshiped.  If we do not worship this God we worship another one, a god of our own imagination and making, a  false god, an idol.  We then remain estranged from the Lord, His Church, and the means of grace, because the god we have chosen is not the One and Only Lord who can save.
