Theological Perspective 3 The Christian is called to adore God in an enlightened way. Jesus said “God is spirit and those that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). The use of the imperative ‘must’ indicates our obligation to discover more about what Adoration is and how best to fulfil this commandment to adore. Fr Thoma…

I saw one of its heads appeared to have a fatal wound but it had healed and after that the whole world had marvelled and followed the beast… then I saw a second beast emerging from the ground…. It was able to win over the people of the world the per…

Cl…
 
Biblical Perspective 5 “Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law but to complete it.” Matthew 5: 17-18. What does Jesus mean by this? Fr Thomas looks closely at the vocabulary used for Adoration in the Gospels and the number of times the words denoting it occur and in which passages. The cleansing of the Temple by Jesus indicates his ange…
 
Biblical Perspective 4 “Thus says Israel’s king and his redeemer, the Lord Sabaoth: I am the First and I am the Last: there is no other God besides me.” Isaiah 44: 6 In the book of Wisdom the idolatry of the pagans is described as foolishness: “Yes, naturally stupid are those who are unaware of God….” Wisdom 13: 1. “From heaven the Lord looks forth…

They have been quick to leave the way I marked out for them; they have made for themselves a calf of molten gold and have worshipped it….” Exodus 32: 7-8.

Biblical Perspective 2 “I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt. You shall have no other Gods except me.

However, Moses has onl…
