Kathryn Lynn CieniewiczLove Is The Long Game
Salvation, justice, equality, the bible, and the unconditional transformative always good Love of God, in this insightful interview, Kathryn talks about her spiritual deconstruction and the journey of rethinking God. She brilliantly addresses the sin of certainty, her newfound feminism, and a Love that casts out all fear.
“The bible absolutely (can be) an idol, but even more than that (its) the idol of certainty.”
“If God is love, I couldn’t see him doing what I read Him doing in the Old Testament.”
“Does Love even need covenants?”
“Self-deprecation is not humility…You are here for the betterment of yourself and humanity, embrace it!”
“Shame is never attached to love, love is not attached to conditions, justice is restorative, not retributive. I knew this in my spirit but now I could go to God with it.”
“Love was speaking to me…Lies were replaced with truth.”
On God as perfect love.
“OK, you (God) are way bigger than the constructs I have been taught about you. I can have confidence that you’re good, you’re loving, I’m good, everyone is good, we’re OK, we’re gonna be alright.”
“It’s about finding a common ground and equality and walking arm in arm. Exerting control over another is not power. True power is about walking in the truth of who we are, and the truth of who others are. And that counts for gender too; who we really are as women who we really are as men. And if we are secure in that, there is no need or feeling of having to have control over that other person or gender.”
