People love God and seek to do His will. But, for a myriad of reasons, they do not understand always just what His will is. If they did know, their approach to the worship of God might be a little less casual than as it is now.
This book is a rational attempt to document what is referred to in the Bible as worshipping “in truth”. The approach is first to convince the reader that the Bible is the true word of God; that it is infallible; and that it is the only source of God’s message to man that we are ever to get. With that accomplished, the scriptures are used to describe God’s attributes, often by showing how God dealt with the various characters and peoples in events recounted in the Bible. Still using only scriptures to develop the narrative, it goes into God’s selection of a particular people to prepare future Christians for the fulfillment of His plan for mankind. The need for salvation is revealed, and Jesus is presented to deliver salvation, to the eternal exaltation of Jesus. The conversion process whereby one goes from lost sinner to saved saint is described. The importance of worshipping God and Christ through the vehicle of the church they established is proclaimed. The various attributes of the church described in the Bible are explored in depth. Finally, the reader is led to the conclusion of which church he believes best satisfies the pattern set forth in the scriptures.
Scriptures is the key word. Nothing is stated except in scripture form, and opinions are avoided to the maximum extent possible. The Bible speaks quite plainly on every issue that is important to man’s salvation. This book attempts to let the scriptures speak for themselves.
