The issue came up in the comments on this post about the fact that God exists to glorify himself.
I was amazed to be listening to the first message from John Piper our Pastor linked from his message (Piper that is) here close to us recently.
It addresses 3/4 the way through the EXACT issue of God existing to glorify himself. It helps sort it out. I'm amazed at the clarity!
It's tough, but good to my soul.
It speaks to EXACTLY what some concerns were expressed on the comments.....no kidding....EXACTLY!
WOW God you are so determined , aren't you!? Thanks.
