QUOTES

“I want to separate western Christianity from biblical Christianity, what would we believe if we read the bible free of our western culture.”

“I saw the church all over the world, restructured. No longer pastor run but it was five-fold ministry. It was not hierarchal, it was community, the walls feel between genders but also between denominations, the body of Christ became the people of God..not just within a building but within a region.”

“There’s a lot of rethinking of the gospel, how we present it.”

“There is no distance between us and God the only problem in the relationship is on our side…The myth of separation. It’s just a myth. In Gen 2:17 where God said “Adam, the day you eat of it you will die,” and then John Calvin defined die as eternal separation from God. That was a terrible, terrible thought. That is not what die means. In the Hebrew it actually says, “dying you will die.” Adam didn’t die that day, nor was he separated from God. God pursued him. Adam tried to hide and that’s where the separation is, we try to hide. It’s never on God’s side, God’s heart is open to every human being…”

“We don’t use the cross to bridge the gap between God and humanity, He is right [here] for everyone.”

Romans 5:10 tells us, “The death of Jesus reconciles you; the life of Jesus saves you…You are not saved by the death of Jesus. It’s the life of Jesus that saves you…”

“You don’t get saved at the cross, you got reconciled. You get saved by receiving the life of Jesus.”

“All I have to do to reconcile you is to come and love you…I am the bridge, the body of Christ.” Linda

    Thanks for the interesting points of view, guys. This brings me back to my childhood a bit, as it’s very similar to the way of church I grew up in. I recognized a lot of the teaching. It’s hard not to throw the baby out with the bathwater during this de/reconstruction process, so it’s good to hear from all different people within the family and have food for thought. Thanks!

      I love the father and mother heart and the generosity of Harold and Linda. They both are wise and encouraging! We aren’t always on the same page but they display the Father’s love so graciously and generously and they make room for everyone at the table! Like you, I’m thankful for the whole family! And I’m thankful for the baby and the bathwater – how else do you get a clean baby haha!!

Whether you’re tired or wide awake, full or empty, lost or found, sick or whole, you are loved by Triune God who walks beside you, will never leave you, and invites you to awaken to His affection and love. “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, and goodwill toward men!”
