As a writer, I make many mistakes. I make punctuation and spelling errors. I make content errors. I write things that aren't clear. I write things and then wish I hadn't. Sometimes my editors catch the errors before a piece is published. Sometimes a friend will spot a mistake in a blog post and I can go back in a fix it. But when something is published in a book, it's not that easy to go back and change it.
So when a reader kindly pointed out a concerning statement in my book, A Heart Set Free, I decided to write this blog post in an effort to point it out for other readers. It's in the chapter titled, "Jesus and the Psalms" where I write about how the Psalms point to Christ. On page 74 it reads, "While during the Old Testament era, the Psalms were sung to Yahweh, God the Father, it is appropriate for us as Christians to sing and pray these Psalms to Jesus the Son." Some might read the statement and think that I am saying that God the Father and God the Son are not one. It could be read as non-Trinitarian. This was not my intention and I apologize for the error. The section should have gone on to say that as Yahweh is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and because the Psalms are ultimately about Christ, and because Jesus is the second person of the Trinity and is fully God, we can sing the Psalms and laments to him.
