Why the cross?

 2 Cor 5:21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (ESV) Have you ever wondered “why the cross?”  If you grew up in a western evangelical church you were probably taught something about a “payment to and angry God” and…

Are you up to the task?

Have you every known someone who was one of those “my way or the highway” kind of people.  I don’t mean it as a judgment but an observation.  In the Navy I had the “privilege” of working for some that were very much the “my way or the highway” leaders.  You can get away with…

Inside out

John 14:20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. In the last few posts I’ve tried to reveal our upside down thinking.  In our fallen way of thinking we perceive a g.o.d. that is not the Abba that Jesus reveals.  Nobody knew…

Fiery Wrath of God!?

I don’t know if you understand how much our way of thinking and processing has been hijacked.  Really.  Our insistence on good-bad fruit and socratic methods and Aristotelian cosmology and Neo-Platonism concepts have so messed up our heads we can’t really “see” apart from His revelation.  This is what John calls the darkness: John 1:5 The…

Progressive Revelation

The Master Plan

In the last post I hopefully laid some foundations for reframing our perspectives.  To know God and walk in the gospel and experience the saving power of our inclusion we need a cold bucket of water dumped on our broken thinking.  When we look back over the last 2000 years, in the western church, we have…

Mess Makers – The great I am NOT

In “Undeniable Incarnate Inclusion” I tried to capture just a glimpse of what the incarnation means to us.  That is actually a funny way of putting since the incarnation means everything to us.  There is a definitive before and after.  We are in the definitive “after.”  We are one with Jesus.  We are included in…

Undeniable Incarnate Inclusion

Before the incarnation we had no internal intimate union with the divine triune Perfection. Now we can know God like Jesus and experience God like Jesus and be loved by God like Jesus and be an anointed son like Jesus. This is what Jeremiah was talking about. Heb 10:15 And the Holy Spirit also bears witness…
