A Nation Under God: Reflections from Jeremiah by Curry Pikkaart PDF

By Curry Pikkaart

One state below God. within the united states those 4 phrases – additional to the pledge in 1954 – became greater than arguable. they've got become battling phrases. the 2 extremes of the spectrum are polar opposites – the only prepared to do whatever to take away the phrases and the opposite prepared to do something to avoid that from taking place. And either are keen to spare no rate or adventure to make themselves heard and visible.
Yet beneath the entire clamoring and positioning there are major questions which are usually lacking from the controversy – questions that has to be addressed if the talk is to be in line with fact instead of mere opinion or powerful own emotions or biases.
What does it suggest to be a kingdom lower than God?
What does a state lower than God glance like?
Why might a country are looking to be lower than God?
What are the results of selecting to be a country less than God?
What are the consequences of selecting to not be a kingdom below God?
Where will we locate solutions to those questions?
There is a historical past from which we will research a few solutions to the questions and realize a few instructions for the talk. The Bible includes the original background of 1 country – Israel – who used to be chosen and referred to as to be a country less than God. It purely turns out logical then to rediscover what this Biblical heritage has to claim.
Israel chanced on the calling tricky and from time to time complicated. occasionally she longed to reside lower than God and occasionally she rebelled on the notion – she, too, skilled the polar extremes. So God gave a difficult activity to the prophet Jeremiah. He assigned Jeremiah – following years of Israelite uprising and fight – to confront the Israelites with their uprising and to name them again to dwelling less than God’s layout and rule. From Jeremiah, then, we will research what being below God – residing through His layout and rule – is ready. There are different elements of the Bible the place those and related questions are addressed, yet nowhere as constantly and forcefully as in Jeremiah. That’s why i've got eager about his message.
