Francois Du Toit | The Mirror Bible

I am often asked what I am reading. Over the last year, I could have answered with many amazing books like McVey’s Beyond an Angry God, Vallotton’s, Destined to Win or McKee’s, Story, but I have given one reply, The Mirror Bible.

I have spent many mornings laughing and crying my way through the thrilling gospel of Jesus written down by my new friend Francois Du Toit.

Francois breathtaking paraphrase translation and brilliant commentary on the New Testament has been a constant empowering companion. The revelation of God’s grace is stunning and pure. The scriptures insight into my oneness with Christ is transformational!

We are co-revealed in Christ! Co-crucified, co-included in His death and resurrection, co-buried, co-quickened, co- alive, co-seated “with Him in His executive authority in the Throne Room of the heavenly realm” (Eph. 2:6 Col 1:1-4 The Mirror).

I recommend the Mirror translation to anyone with a heartbeat. Blessings!

    The Mirror translation is a Blasphemous joke and I pray for the salvation of Francois and all who have been deceived by his teachings. While very appropriately named as it deifies man and asks the reader to merely understand that you are already a good person, needing nothing more than to “realize” they are a good person to be in God’s good graces. Stick with the the KJV bible for accuracy, if you struggle with its High Late Medieval English, use a modern version to help you understand its words. Long story short Man is a FALLEN creature who needs Christ to Save him. Man is DEAD in his sins, Blind to all goodness and it is only through the works of God that man is drawn to him so that Christ’s righteousness may be counted towards him. Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. incase you become confused with corrupted scripture.

      Hey Joel, do we know each other? I have a lot of Joels in my life 🙂

      Thanks for your thoughts. Praying joy and grace and wonder over you today!

      I know well the gospel you are preaching. I grew up in its shadow.

      I imagine you and I can agree that salvation is discovered in and through Jesus and what He did on the cross.

      But I think we disagree regarding what Jesus revealed at the cross; that all creation was being reconciled in Christ (see 2 Cor 5:19). I think we disagree regarding how finished Christ’s work was, the goodness of our Father, and how inclusive the gospel of salvation is.

      I’m not gonna try and twist your arm into valuing different translations, I trust Holy Spirit in you.

      Personally, I love the KJ, the NKJ, the NIV and more. And also, I love most paraphrase bibles, especially The Mirror Bible. I have discovered Jesus in all of them.

      I pray the love of God chases you down, I pray that you would discover that neither death nor life, nor angels or devils, that nothing can separate you from His great affection.

      Bless ya man
      Jason

    The “I Am” message delivered so eloquently by FDT in “Image Bearers” kept me from abandoning Christianity altogether, after more than 50 years. Now, I can’t stop smiling.

    What a joy to hear the authentic. Gospel! Why do we insist on legalism and religion. Have we even read the Bible, we have been so indoctrinated….. how sad. But Holy Spirit is awakening those ‘who have ears to hear!’ Hallelujah!

    Hello Francois, I so appreciate the Mirror Bible and you books. Many of the Christians I like to listen to or read are now talking about reincarnation. I really struggle with the idea but I realize I don’t know everything and some books of the Bible have been hidden but the idea of comming back multiple times until we become Pure/Christlike enough seems punitive to me and seems to contradict the truth that we are made in God’s image and redeemed/awakened to that truth in this post cross time and space. I would really appreciate you thoughts on this. Do you give any consideration to the thought that reincarnation might be a truth planned, used and blessed by God. I know you are very busy and sought after but maybe you have already written on this subject and can send that to me. Thank you.

SURE IN LOVE

SURE IN LOVE

Our Heavenly Father is always good and doesn’t desire desperate kids. Any relationship where kids are desperate for their Father is dysfunctional. Jesus revealed what it looks like to live sure as a loved son of our Father and gave us access to this same sureness.

I CALL YOU FRIENDS

I CALL YOU FRIENDS

“I no longer call you servant, I call you friend.” This is the invitation Jesus gave us. There is no servant master language in heaven. Obedience is the invitation to discover God’s heart until ours beats in rhythm with His.

FAMILY IS THE LONG GAME

FAMILY IS THE LONG GAME

Jason focuses on the power of an encounter with God’s love and the impact thankfulness has on our lives. The message was taken from Luke 17:11-19

Jesus, Baseball, and Shame

Here’s the thing, if we believe God is about control, it affects everything. Every experience and encounter is filtered through the insecurity of our relationship with a small God. A control-based perspective of God is evidenced by the subtle anxiety we experience in our heart when the furnace breaks down, to the blatant sense of righteousness when a rapist gets the death penalty.

A Hard Teaching?

‘You do not want to leave too, do you?’ Jesus asked the Twelve.

Simon Peter answered, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that You are the Holy One of God.’”

Flipping Tables

So, Jesus flipped tables—not in the spirit of retribution but as a revelation of reconciling love. Jesus flipped tables in the authority of, “Father, forgive them; they know not what they do.” Jesus flipped tables in the power of “God in Christ, reconciling…oppressed and oppressor.” 1 Jesus was outraged by injustice, so He flipped tables in the justice of a “Love (that) keeps no record of wrongs.”

Flip Your Lid with Kim Honeycutt

I had the incredible honor of conversing with psychotherapist Kim Honeycut for her podcast.

Below is a synopsis of our conversation. It was a good one!

Jason Clark is a pastor, writer, producer, and many more titles. He is also a cisgender, white male who was removed from a church because he had different ideas about the Bible. This is his story about leaving and rediscovering Jesus.

Dream Like An Old Man: Part One, The A-Team

Over the last twenty some years I’ve had some rather rude awakenings. Yeah, I’ve traveled to new places and I’ve confronted Bad Dudes. But that’s pretty much were the similarities to an episode of the A-Team end. You see, the bullets were real and they didn’t miss. I’ve been shot, many times – and it was no mere flesh wound either.

FRIENDSHIP WITH DEREK & JASON

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What, you too? I thought I was the only one.” C.S Lewis
From Romans Road to The Emmaus Road, Derek and Jason celebrate and revisit 2023 while dreaming dream into 2024. Two friends tell stories, reminisce, and wonder at the goodness of God. From reformation, restoration, reconciliation, righteousness, peace, and joy to community, kindness, and transformation, the guys share some of the ways they have been rethinking, particularly around a deeper understanding of friendship—friendship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and friendship with each other. Eventually, as always, the guys talked about Love, the heights, depths, lengths, and widths.
