Perspective for the Sake of Releationship

Author's Note

 

 

 

 

 

This book is about perspective for the sake of relationship.

While the subject is the sovereignty of God, this is not a theological textbook written to prove or defend some thought about God. I have simply written to reveal what I am discovering in my personal relationship with God.

Yes, like all of us, I am a theologian. But I am not a systematic theologian with letters in front of his name, I am a relational theologian; a son, a husband, a father, a brother, a friend – I am loved and I love.

In this book, I have not written about Gods sovereignty through a rigid systematic lens. I have written through the lens of relationship. I don’t approach God through disciplines, ethics and the dogma of religious thought; I approach God as an adored son of my Father, a beloved brother of Jesus, an intimate friend of Holy Spirit.

And it’s all about family.

I am convinced family is the Kingdom Jesus talked about, the Kingdom He lived from, the Kingdom He revealed, the Kingdom He taught us to pray for and instructed us to establish here on earth as it is in heaven.

And you are a part of that family.

While I understand the premise of this book may cause many to feel tension, please know it’s my great desire that every word reveals my love affair with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit so that you might be encouraged in your own love affair. It’s my great hope that you might grow deeper in a trusting intimate relationship with God.

Last, the sovereignty of God is an infinite revelation. I am but a child with a finite tongue. There is nothing I submit as absolutely definitive in this book except, God is love, His love is always good, and we exist to grow sure.

I pray this book encourages you to grow sure.

God Bless

    June 2017 I just finished reading this book (after reading Prone to Love) and plan to re-read both, journal in hand. I am thoroughly blown away at what God has revealed through Jason’s writing. I feel as if I have personally been escorted back to the Garden where the original lie was introduced (control) and been given the eyes to see the deception and how it plays itself out in my skewed understanding of who God is. Mind blown. I barely have words to describe the joy and hope I have for deeper revelation and intimacy with God. For freedom in my life and the trickle down effect this will have in all my relationships. I grew up with a ‘control’ narrative so it was very easy to go with that narrative about God. It’s like the curtain has been pulled back on the Wizard of Oz. I was saved 35 years ago and have been interpreting Scripture and life through the wrong lens. Thank you, Jason, for having the courage to speak truth that will truly set those brave enough to question free. Rich blessings to you, brother!

      Yay God! Mary, thanks for sharing this. So encouraged by how God has used the books!!

      I too am on this revelatory journey into His love, into greater intimacy. He is such a good Father!

      If you have the time, I’d be honored if you would consider adding this review on Amazon. I believe your perspective will encourage others.

The Older Brother

Because he didn’t truly know his dads heart, he couldn’t truly know who he was nor could he understand how his dad could celebrate his brothers return. He was essentially saying, “Why on earth are you celebrating my brother? What’s he done for you lately?”

THOMAS JAY OORD / OPEN & RELATIONAL THEOLOGY

Thomas Jay Oord shares about open relational theology; how it connects with the way we live and matches our deepest intuitions. The guys talked about a relational God who is genuinely loving, looks like Jesus, and walks through each day with us, impacting and impacted by our friendship.

Thomas describes an uncontrolling, loving God, that harmonizes with scripture. In this podcast, he dives into the subjects of hell, prayer, and evangelism all through the lens of open relational theology.
