Read whatever doctrine of Scripture you will, and it will leave you as poor and empty and unreformed as it found you, unless it has turned you wholly and solely to the Spirit of God.  Delight in whatever passage of Scripture you can find and your delight will be nothing unless it has strengthened your union with and dependence upon Him.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    Law is wrong. Look at the covenant between God and Israel: in return for faith, we are promised land, abundant harvests, and victory over those who would harm us. Look at David, who danced and sang; look at Solomon, who enjoyed great wealth and a fanciful number of wives. How can you claim that God wants us not to care about this world at all? God wants us to make this world into a good place by being good people; not to deny this world in hope of being given a better one. God wants us to grow up to become responsible adults; not remain spoiled children forever, demanding a new toy because of a failure to properly appreciate the one we were given.

    Eh?  I’m not following your thought here.  This passage says absolutely nothing about not caring about this world.  Care to elucidate?
    Law is talking about the inside–that one cannot just read the Bible intellectually.  You have to take it in and live it!  And living it would definitely entail singing and dancing before the Lord, and generally having joy in the journey of life.  It would also make us do our best to help our fellow man and this earth we live on.
    I don’t see what you’re protesting?????????
