“The gospel is not an invitation to accept Jesus into our hearts, it’s a proclamation that Jesus has already accepted us into His heart.” Like a kind father, Don Keathley Don touches on the goodness of our Father, Jesus as perfect theology, grace, our union, our identity, how to approach scripture, and the lie of eternal conscious torment.

“Behavior follows identity. The key to everything is identity. When we come into an understanding of divinity as identity; that we really are partakers of the divine nature; that just opens up the door to wholeness.”

“A holiness lifestyle is a natural response to wholeness.”

“If all died in Adam, then all certainly have been made alive in Christ.”

“I don’t consider myself a universalist but I do consider myself an inclusionist. I believe we are included in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus.”

“The gospel is not an invitation to come and accept Jesus into your heart, it’s a proclamation that Jesus has already accepted you into His heart.”

“In my experience, people have never heard the gospel, they’ve heard a transactional message where salvation is a transaction, they’ve heard a decisional Christianity. They have never heard the good news, they have never heard the gospel that they are already accepted they are already included, now awaken to who you already are.”

    I have only just found Rethinking God with Tacos and I’m afraid that as a Brit and a vegetarian, the drooling over tacos is a bit lost on me. However what I do love and resonate with are your guest speakers and I was so blessed to hear Don Keathley on your show. Don’s teachings have changed my life and the fruit is freedom, love and mercy. The Gospel !
    May you guys be blessed in all that you do and thank you for bringing these Life speakers all together in one place. I’m working my way down the list 👏👏👏
