"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. The history of mankind will probably show that no people has ever risen above its religion, and man’s spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God. Worship is pure or base as the worshiper entertains high or low thoughts of God. For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he in his deep heart conceives God to be like. We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God. This is true not only of the individual Christian, but of the company of Christians that composes the Church. Always the most revealing thing about the Church is her idea of God."
-A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy, 1
What is the chief end of man? To glorify God by enjoying Him forever. It is an understatement of epic proportions to say that there is no greater subject to study than the doctrine of God. The very heart and soul of theology—indeed all of life, meaning, and truth— is centered on the glorious Triune God of the Bible. The greatest need in the Church today is for its people to be God-centered. If we want to glorify God by finding all our satisfaction and joy in Him alone, we must become God-centered.
Beginning September 12, we invite the men of Five Points to join us as we plumb the depths of God's glorious revelation of Himself in His Word on the second Wednesday of every month at 7pm. We will band together to push each other Godward, for His glory and our joy. Through reading, memorizing Scripture, theological reflection and biblical discussion, we we will pursue our joy in God as we gather together to know Him in all of His glory and splendor.
This is no journey for the faint of heart as we will commit to our fellow Fraternal brothers in spurring one another on to find in all God all our joy, laboring for His glory in our study of this grand doctrine. The cost is $75, which will cover all materials for the entire year. Registration can be found here and more information can be found throughout the year here.
