Saints, Becoming More Than Christians

 

 

 

 

 

The Bible uses the word, Christian, to describe followers of Jesus a grand total of three times. But there’s another identifier that fills the pages of the New Testament–a word we’ve mistakenly reserved for the halo-wearing elite, losing something profound in the process. Saints.

Identity, union, searching scripture through the lens of Jesus, and holiness discovered through community, in this podcast, Addison Bevere brilliantly describes that we are beloved saints.

QUOTES

“Saints are the people who wake up now instead of waiting till the next lifetime.”

“We are saints, together… Holiness is communal.”

“Religion is always the attempts of the lesser to control the greater.”

“We understand the law and the prophets through the lens of the Son, through the beloved Son…when we get that, the Law and the Prophets actually start to make a lot of sense.”

THOMAS JAY OORD / GOD CAN’T

“Given that we start with God’s power…we end up giving God the kind of capabilities that make God culpable; in other words, morally responsible for not only causing but allowing bad things…I think there are good biblical reasons to object to that standard view of Gods power.” Thomas Jay Oord

NAEEM FAZAL / REIMAGINING GOD

Naeem Fazal, founding pastor of Mosaic Church, and author of Ex-Muslim, talks about deconstruction or reimaging God. Naeem talks about the importance of being able to recognize God outside of our personal context, how to view sin, how to approach scripture, and a beautiful gospel that’s not just about a Jesus who saves but about a Jesus who is restoring humanity and all creation.
