2 Samuel 6:6-7 6 And when they came to Nachon's threshing floor, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled. 7 Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Uzzah, and God struck him there for his error; and he died there by the ark of God. ___ Have you ever heard that line? Have you ever heard people try to justify all kinds of "worship" based on their ideas of a good heart. Is Christ pleased when people say that only the heart matters? When asked the greatest commandment, Christ said that it was to love God with all of your mind, heart, soul, and strength (not just the heart). This notion that God is only concerned with the heart is cruel. To encourage people to worship God in a manner that is not pleasing to him is many times deadly. It is a serious issue. There are many stories in the Bible where people were killed (by God) for offering false worship. I have often wondered if some of peoples problems can be related to their "worship". Arguments like the following used to justify any kind of "worship" are incomplete and demonstrate a deficiency in theological training: 1. I think it brings God glory. 2. People are getting saved. 3. Paul said to be all things to all people. 4. Music is amoral. 5. It is the only way to reach them. There are more of course.
