    The Worship Principle
    Royce Logan
    The Worship Principle takes the Christian and the non-christian down the narrow path of explaining why God created man and woman and what our purpose is for being here. From the principle that we were created for worship, all other truths and understandings of the Christian faith come to life with meaning and purpose. Love, relationships, joys, pleasures, healings, and even prosperity all come from the realization that the one thing God wants from us is worship. Once we understand this principle of the Christian experience God will open up the abundance of life we have been promised.

    Chapter 4
    Man’s Separation from God


    Before man’s first act of sin, the eating of the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, man was spiritually pure. There was no evil in the soul of man. We know what happened to Adam and Eve in the physical world when they sinned. God drove them out of the Garden of Eden partly as punishment, so that they would no longer enjoy the ease and pleasures of this Paradise God had created for them, but also to keep them from eating from the tree of life. God even placed a guard, an angel, in the Garden of Eden to keep Adam and Eve from the tree of life because He could no longer trust man to be obedient. We had failed in our worship of God.
    In the physical, God was able to forgive Adam and Eve. He is the author of the physical. He can do whatever He wants in the physical world. That’s why He clothed Adam and Eve before He sent them out from the Garden of Eden. He did what He could for them in the physical. He forgave them in the physical and He clothed them because He had compassion for them. Adam was ashamed and hid himself from God. God accepted Adam’s regret. He forgave them in the physical. Adam and Eve’s forgiveness in the physical was because of their shame and their regret. God is the author of the physical and could therefore set the penalty they owed for their sin in the physical and the penalty was the loss of Paradise. By removing Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, they paid the penalty for their sin in the physical.
    Spiritually, however, Adam and Eve had no way to atone for their spiritual sin against God. God could forgive the spiritual sin but He could not take away the penalty for the sin and be done with it because God is spiritual. God is everlasting and unchanging. God would have to compromise Himself to change the nature of sin, the penalty of sin, or the results of sin. It would be like one of us condoning murder. If our best friend or child committed murder we could decide in our own minds to forgive them for the act of the murder, but we could not take away the penalty they would have to pay for the murder. Even if we had the power to take away the penalty for the act of murder, we would have to compromise our own values and the values of our culture to do it. We would have to compromise ourselves.
    You might ask, “Well, isn’t God also the author of all that is spiritual too? And if He is, can’t He do whatever He wants in the spiritual realm just as you say He can do anything He wants in the physical realm?” I can’t answer this because it’s like asking which came first the chicken or the egg. What we know about God from the Bible is that He always was and always will be.

    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelations 1:8 (KJV)

    God is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He always was and He always will be the Almighty. God is spiritual. Did He create Himself and all that exists in His presence which is spiritual? The best answer we have to the question, “Did God create Himself?” is no. There was no beginning to God and certainly no end. He always was and always will be. Therefore, there was no creation of God. The point of this is that God created the physical world. He is the author of all that exists in the physical realm. Therefore, He can move mountains and part seas. What He can do in the spiritual realm we don’t know. Perhaps He can do anything, and I would expect that He can. But, because He is spiritual, He would have to change Himself, but God is unchanging. For I am the LORD, I change not; Malachi 3:6 (KJV). God will not change His spiritual realm because He would have to change Himself, He would have to compromise Himself to do it.
