Olympians Rage in Vain

Psalm 2 opens with the nations raging, the peoples plotting, and the rulers of the earth conspiring against Abba (God the Father) and Jesus his Anointed One (the meaning of Messiah and Christ). Even today these Olympians attack the integrity of church buildings, Christians, and especially the Bible (vs. 1-2). They experience the liberating Word of God as a challenge to their false self-centered freedom of doing whatever they want to do regardless of the consequences (v. 3).
