About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

A recent headline in a national newspaper read, “NYT could try a little humility . . .” It made me wonder whether replacing “NYT” with “Christians” might be appropriate as it concerns our attitudes and interpretations . . . at least now and then. What could be a way forward in both loving the truth and humbly doing so?

When we read any part of the Bible it is important to know where the section we are reading fits within the biblical storyline. It is similarly important to know if what we are reading is discussed anywhere else in Scripture. When we read about creation there are a lot of things that we could talk about, but I want to focus on one thing that is crucial to understand that concerns both the storyline of the Bible and a theme that is found the beginning and end of Scripture. The creation narrative in Genesis 1-2 is bookended by the new creation narrative in Revelation 21-22.

“Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest? All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be.” (Isaiah 66:1-2)

In the ancient world, temples were built to serve as a kind of “house” in which the deity would dwell and in which sacrifices to the deity would be offered. Indeed, even in Israel, King Solomon built a temple that would serve as the sign of God’s presence among his people and be the place where sacrifices were offered.

There are few things more enjoyable than a good Reese’s cup. The chocolate and peanut butter just make sense. Many things in our world just seem to fit together and make sense.

This seems to be, in a larger sense, the drive of mankind. How do I make sense out of this world? God planned for our world to make sense out of relationships. These relationships are both vertical (with God and man) and horizontal (with each other). This brings the richness of life that makes sense of the world. The simple words of Jesus, summing up all the commands: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39)
