This is what Peterson says, “The common-sense objection to God dwelling on earth in a house of prayer, to God meeting us in a place of worship, has not been able to survive the evidence of experience and faith. After all, common sense is one of the least reliable tests of reality.”
I understand this to mean, that “common-sense” would dismiss the idea of God meeting us in a building. But the evidence of experience and faith defies this so called “common-sense”.
I then thought about the question, “Does anyone care, God?”. I continued “Does anyone care about God, God?”
As I looked at the verse and what I had written, a small voice inside my head said, “Are you listening”? “Do you care about God, Mark?”
