Kids Shouldn't Talk Like This to Their Fathers
"Kids Talk to their Fathers" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
If you convert the words of praise to God into normal relational language, most of it doesn't make sense.
Barth argued that worship is a product of the Fall and indicates separation. Before the Fall we walked together with God in the garden in intimate fellowship. But the Fall thereafter required language that reflects catastrophic detachment.
Is that how we want to live today?
