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!

Time Travel and The Omnipresent Nature of Love

What if today, while I write, I am also in the “cloud of witnesses” cheering on myself, my family, my friends, and the sons and daughters of God as we awaken to love? What if, while you read this, you are also seated in Christ at the right hand of my Father? (See Heb 12:1 & Eph 2:6) What if we have been invited to live from the measureless omnipresent love of God that dwells within us? What if every prayer, every promise, every dream, every hope has its beginning and end in the measureless, retroactive, proactive, reconciling, omnipresent love of God?

The Glory of God… Without Lifting A Finger

The romance is in the truth that God always loved me, before my co-operation or obedience. Long before I put my trust in Him, He was passionately in love with me. I have always been the apple of His eye! “I was in Him before I was in Adam!” And the incarnate Christ redeemed the glory that I already was!

STEVE MCVEY/ BEYOND AN ANGRY GOD

Scandalous multifaced fathomless grace, restorative justice, redeemed identity, our union with Abba Father and intimacy with our Triune God barely scratches the surface of this 40-minute power-packed interview with Dr. Steve McVey.

Rethinking God

Humanity had “God-boxes” and Jesus kept blowing them up. Humanity was convinced God was one way and Jesus kept contradicting those paradigms.

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…”

Kindness

It’s His kindness that exposes our arrogance and hypocrisy, that knocks us off our high horses; the same kindness that violently knocked Paul on his ass exposing his elite violent unkindness toward God’s beloved. And it’s His kindness that exposes our ignorance, broken ideology, and oppressive theology, that gently reveals resurrection life; the same kindness shown on a road to Emmaus when God hid Himself so His beloved could discover union.
