What is Hell?

 

 

 

 

“Hell is not His punishment of sinners; it is the end result of our defiant rejection of the reality of our divine union. “You can’t break away from this divine flame of love. Hell is not separation from God; no one gets that much privacy.

“No, the more you resist his flame of love, your resistance is your own self-condemnation. He is not the enemy of the damned, but the savior of the damned. He came to save the world, but the world stood self-condemned already because of their very rejection of Mr. Life.”

– John Crowder

We are free to reject Him all we want, but we can’t stop Him from loving and pursuing us.

Jesus stepped down into the depth of our depravity. To the very bottom rung of the ladder – He swallowed up our darkness in uncreated light. He destroyed our decay, our depression, our decrepit state of separation in His own servant body on the cross. That, in a nutshell, was the point of the cross – it was about curing the human condition, not paying off an angry Father who was against us.

“I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom 8:39)

Isn’t that just good news!

Love you

Unraveling The Universe

When it came to a particular chapter in Prone To Love, one of my pastor friends raised an alarm regarding my thoughts about the sovereignty of God. I had written an entire chapter under the title, “God Is Not In Control” and that thought bothered him. He felt it was an incredibly flawed idea. He was also concerned it would cause distress and confusion in my reader. He suggested that promoting the idea that God is not in control would be the equivalent of “pulling the string that unravels the universe.”

What If…

What if we began to discover God as a measureless Love that has all authority and is the most powerful revelation on the planet but never controls.

What if we live, move and have our being to grow sure in Love and to become love?

He Loves Me Best / S&U Message

The title of my message was “He loves me best!” I hope to post it here in the coming days, but for a quick synopsis, check out this film that was shot last year to help promote my book Surrendered & Untamed.

A Boy, A Puppy, And A Greater Faith

I believe God is always saying one thing: “I love you.” And He always follows up with a question, “do you believe me?” What would our lives look like if we could answer this one question that God is always asking?
