A. Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever.
Recently, TableTalk magazine contributor Harry Reeder had this to say regarding what most modern-day churches now teach instead (through their sermons and lessons, not in traditional question and answer format):
Q. “What is the chief end of God?”
A. To love me and make me happy.
Great point, TableTalk! That is exactly what I am seeing everywhere I look! From the local neighborhood church to the Rick Warrens, Steven Furticks, and Joyce Meyers of the world, the message is the same…It’s all about me!! If you are in a church where the focus of the teaching is your fulfillment, your goals, your success, or your life, then beware! The church should be focused on Christ, not on self.
