A strange idea coming from our background of mythological reasoning has infused into our worship and appreciation of God. As a result, our worship deeply reflects this thinking that God is too superior to be accountable. It also affects our interpretation of certain aspects of the bible and our faith life. Up to a point were people believe that whatever happens in life (particularly bad stuff) cannot be questioned because it is by God’s hand.

Training and exercise

And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty.
