THE UNIQUENESS OF CHRISTIAN WORSHIP: WHAT MAKES WORSHIP CHRISTIAN?
By Ted Schroder, Trinity Sunday June 19, 2011
What is distinctive and unique about Christian worship? What makes Christian worship different from the offerings of other religions? How does our understanding of what we do in worship differ from non-Christians?
The difference is our understanding of God as Trinity. Because we believe that God has revealed himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that God has come in the flesh as Jesus Christ, and is present by his Holy Spirit, we approach worship differently from other faiths. This is how the letter to the Hebrews expresses it.
