Trinitarian Worship

Posted by

I think the greatest danger to Trinitarian worship in at least American evangelicalism is the oft-cited "Jesus-only" phenomenon.  Instead of worshiping God, we say that we are "worshiping Jesus."  Now, we should worship Jesus, but not only God the Son.  Therefore, I think much progress can be made simply by emphasizing that we are brought to God the Father, through God the Son, by the power of God the Spirit.  If this framework for our thinking and speaking sufficiently penetrated our speaking, preaching, singing, and liturgies, then enormous progress would be made in many of our churches.
