Judge not lest you be judged

Jesus reveals the Father.  Jesus shows us the nature and character of God.  Jesus is God and is the way to God.  Jesus is the truth about God.  Jesus is the life of God expressed in the perfect human form.  Jesus is the Love of God expressed in perfect harmony with the triune nature of…

Why the cross? – part two

In the last post I talked about how Jesus “became our Sin” on the cross.  Hopefully I at least introduced a new way of seeing what “becoming our Sin” really means.  I tried to show how the power of Sin is the “Sin” that Paul is talking about.  This “Sin” is our lost identity, our…

Pearls before swine!

Mat 7:6 “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you. (ESVST) What is that all about?  Let’s take a little walk, shall we? Years ago I was on a test flight in a Super Hornet (F/A-18E), where we…

The Fiya of Hell! or not?

Shocking title, right?  Depending on where you came from and what kind of religious experience you may have endured, this phrase “fire of hell” can really get you going, or not.  The more I come to know Jesus the more I “giggle” at the misuse of this concept.  The more I am aware by the…

Re-Framing

“Christianity is not a religion; it is the announcement of the end of religion. Religion consists of all the things (believing, behaving, worshiping, sacrificing) the human race has ever thought it had to do to get right with God.” (Robert Capon) In these last few posts I’ve tried to contrast a before and after kind…

The Fallacy of Separation

Where we start often determines where we finish.  The end is predicated on the beginning.  Our perception is based on our experiential understanding.  In our human wisdom we base much of what we know to be true on our perception.  We will immediately reject something as “false” based on our “grid.”  Our “grid” is our perception…

Who is the judge, really?

God has always been with us. He has never been apart from us. His everywhere is so unmistakable and incredible that to put Him elsewhere is unimaginable. How could the one who holds all things together be apart from what He holds together. If He is actively participating in the maintenance and sustaining of His…

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…

Wrong Obsession

Why are we so obsessed with hell anyway? I believe our sin obsession is tied to our hell obsession. If we believe sinning puts us in hell, then we need to stop sinning or find some way to have our sins covered so we don’t go to hell. We need to make others afraid so…
