Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. -- Hebrews 12:28-29 (ESV)

Note the emphasis on acceptable worship. acceptable worship has reverence and awe for God. It is so serious that the writer of Hebrews has to remind us that the God we serve is a consuming fire. Maybe we ought to remember that before declaring that God is jealous for us or that He longs for our affection. Maybe we would do well to dwell on that before singing to the creator of the universe that He craves communion with us or that His devotion for us is wilder than the oceans. Perhaps we ought to have a sliver of respect before declaring our God to be reckless, insatiable, unappeasable, ravening, wolfish, and greedy. Perhaps we ought to be mindful before chasing after that which would consume us for such blinding arrogance and stupidity.

When asked about the criticism over reckless love, the writer from Jesus Culture arrogantly defended it claiming he was not saying God was reckless but that His love was and pointed skeptics to Luke 15. Sorry but you need more time studying God's word and less time writing heretical garbage for your own glory and fame. Luke 15 has the three stories about God's love. First is the 99 and the one and nowhere does the text indicate that God was reckless in his love for the one. He always knew where the 99 were. They were never in any danger from Him seeking out that which was lost. God can hold the 99 in the palm of His hand and still seek the one that is lost. The lost coin just shows the diligence of God in seeking. Nothing reckless about it at all. The last story is the prodigal son. God does nothing reckless in waiting and scouring the horizon for his lost son. Certainly, His decision to welcome him home and rejoice is not in line with the carnality of man, brilliantly displayed by the true prodigal -- the son who stayed home with him. That is not reckless. No aspect of God is reckless. Similarly, no aspect of God is insatiable. You may think this is no big deal but just remember that you might be able to see past the nonsense easier than your kids. Or the youth at your church. Jesus Culture is led by Walker-Smith, who openly brags about a demonic encounter she could not and still cannot discern. She and her compatriots were taught by Bill Johnson, one of the most egregious heretics on the planet. Our desire to avoid them and mark them for the body should be both reckless and insatiable.

Reverend Anthony Wade -- September 9, 2019
