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!

David experienced the valley, but the valley was never God’s heart for him. Death is never the focus with God. He is always and only about resurrection.

Tell Her How I See Her

I took a breath and was about to pray for all the needs she had just brought to my attention when God interrupted me. Speaking to my heart in a strong commanding way He asked, “Jason, what are you doing?”

What is Hell?

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