Lavish expressions of Christ’s love?
May 30, 2011
My friend ERIC has written an excellent article entitled “excess or adoration” in which he questions when it is ok for Christians and churches to buy expensive gifts as lavish expressions of Christ’s love. Eric writes,
So my question is this — is there room for material signs of worship? Think of the story of Mary anointing Jesus’ feet with expensive perfume. What is it her critics cried — shouldn’t you have given that to the poor! Oh, and that lone critic was Judas. . . . I think most of the modern critique of Churches is fair — I’m just trying to make sure I’m not in the company of Judas if someone really is worshipping God with a right heart.
So, why not read Eric’s post and let him know what you think.
