THIS WEEK IN WORSHIP

 April 27, 2014

Our Bodies Are Good

Gnosticism is an insidious heresy which, in its various forms, has staying power in the church. Central to gnostic thought is assertion that creation is not good and therefore could not have possibly been created by a good God. Rather it was an evil demigod who created the heavens and the earth. For the gnostic, the goal of the life of faith is to escape and transcend creation in all its physicality, including our grotesque bodies with their myriad needs and desires. Jesus, for the Christian gnostic, offers a means of escape. On the other hand, the Bible affirms a good God and a good creation. As we begin our series on sexuality, we affirm and celebrate a good creator, and the goodness of creation, including our own bodies.   —Phil Waite
