Liberty WRSP 420 Discussion 2 Answers
In John chapter 4, we find the familiar passage where Jesus talks with a Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. In verses 19-20, she states, “Sir, I can see that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshipped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” Beginning in verse 21, Jesus answered her, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. A time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth.”
With this passage in mind and based on chapter 5 of The Purpose of Man by A. W. Tozer, discuss “Religion versus Worship.” Include in your discussion externality of worship and cite 21st century examples of the same. Include in your discussion at least 3 citations from Tozer’s book.
