If glorifying God is a way to express the prime of justice of humanity, then it seems there should be more written work on actualizing that pain. In the 20th century there was much focus on evangelism, and authentic evangelism is a means to glorifying God. But it is not the only means; people plan their entire lives around “soul winning.”
An entire generation of evangelicals focuses their efforts on the great commission lifestyle. I am not suggesting that this itself is wrong. But clearly it can be pursued for the wrong reason. It can obscure the deeper purposes.
If one aims at gloryfying God then one must think about how to do so in layers of existence:
- It can be done by presencing his image.
- It can be done by drawing others in to presence his image (evangelism).
- It can be done in creating works that presence his image.
- It may also be actualized with other expressions rather than this notion of “presencing.”
We need to engage in deeper thinking on this question.
