All the commandments are challenging to us sinners. In the first commandment we saw that God will not share his glory with another. In the 2nd commandment we read and hear that we must worship the true God truly. We do not get to decide how we will approach God in public worship. Our public worship is regulated by God’s law in a way that the rest of our life is not. If we fail to make this distinction we risk, on the one hand, antinomianism and on the other we risk legalism. The second seems to be a particularly difficult commandment because we seem to be surrounded by violations of one sort or another and their prevalence seems to make our confession of God’s Word implausible. There are good reasons, however, why we should stand fast and recover the biblical teaching and practice. This is the fourth installment in this series that began with Heidelcast episode 77.
Here’s the episode:
