Love and Religion

 

 

 

 

God being Love is so revolutionary that we religious folk still get uncomfortable with it!

“Yes, but, He’s also Holy!

Yes, but you know, He’s also Just!

Religious folk too often tend to be arrogant and judgmental folk, dealers in shame; their own and others. Religion (the knowledge of good and evil) deals in superiority and inferiority which are both shame-based.

Our freedom from shame and religion will only be found in a revelation of the Love of God.

Love is irreligious!

Love is shameless!

Love is so transparent!

Love is so forgiving!

Love is so empowering!

Love is the TRUTH that sets us free…

Freedom from religion and shame (the good or evil paradigm) empowers us to set others free; because Truth sees others through the lens of love! Truth only works through Love!

God is Love, no buts. And Love is the lens of Truth through which we are seen by Him and the ONLY source of our freedom!

Religion and shame only empower the lies of separation and worthlessness. But Love is how God knows us and sees us in our created value, our union, not the lie of our sins and failures.

Love sets us free to be everything God created us to be.

Religion and shame have no power to accomplish that!

So, speaking the TRUTH in LOVE is NOT shame-based. It’s NOT about exposing and confronting your brother’s sin!

It’s about helping your brother or sister get a revelation of their true value and helping them see the truth about how our Father sees us!

God is Love!

Mercy triumphs over judgment!

Yeah, God!

How to Read the Bible (Part 2)

Jesus is my lens, my true narrative. His perfect love is my conviction. His goodness is my faith. Every question I have, every relationship or circumstance, every scripture, including the tension Job represents, is measured against the measureless revelation of Jesus.

JOHN MACMURRAY/ IF YOU LOOK AT IT AS A RELATIONSHIP…

“…Jesus defines eternal life as a relationship. My entire education had defined eternal life as believing the right ideology… All I knew was, God was better than I thought he was and there was no way I’m going back…”

While I think the prophetic has a noble and appropriate place, I think we are too easily led astray from the joy that is “today.”

A Prayer For Our Economy

Last night I had the honor of worshipping and praying for Charlotte and our Nation with radical revivalists.

2020

Earlier this year I noted in a Newsletter the pioneering nature of our ministry and nothing’s changed. We have one passion, to reveal that God is love, looks like Jesus, and He is always good. It is our heart that everything we create is catalytic for an encounter with His great affection. We are daily dreaming and leaning into this grand dangerous, beautiful discovery of His goodness. And we are shouting it from the rooftops along the way.

A Message From My Father

I love you when you mess up; I love you when you come running back. I love you when you reject my grace; I love you when you embrace my goodness. I always love you. Do you believe me?
