While I firmly believe that the Scriptures are the only foundation for understanding God, I am not foolish enough to deny that perspective carries a great deal of weight in our viewpoint of God. And each generation, even people within the same generation will see God from different perspectives.
A friend recently sent me this video and the following text:
“This song is what made me realize about the generational differences in being a Christian…this is a song of this generation, who loves God and wants to know Him. They are not motivated by fear of Him, nor are they moved by the rules and warnings of their grandparents’ generation– as a matter of fact, they view them as man-made and hypocritical, maybe even ugly.”
