Loving God By Loving Our Neighbor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bruxy Cavey, author, and pastor of The Meeting House, dives into relational faith, loving God through loving our neighbor, repenting with a hopeful future focus, how doubt is connected to our faith, how we are not people of the book (bible) we are people of the person (Jesus), and three perspectives on hell concluding with the fact that the New Testament church never leveraged hell to get people to make a decision to for Jesus.

QUOTES

“Jesus was no theologian He was just God who told stories.” Madeleine L’Engle

“There are people who will hurt other people to show how much they love God…they will boast in their love of God by doing damage to people around them…”

“A new command I give you, just love others as I love you.”

“No longer is it love God and love your neighbor, now it’s love God by loving your neighbor. That is our faith.”

“Meditation, prayer, bible study, going to church all play back up to the band…the soloist in the band of Christian faith is loving others really, really well. Even our enemies…we love our neighbors we love or enemies, there’s no one left not to love in the spirituality of Jesus.”

“More often than not He uses the word repent to change the way we think about the coming Kingdom. ‘The Kingdom is at hand, repent and hear the good news.’ He attaches it (repent) to what’s coming, not what happened before; to what we should be hopeful about not, what we should be ashamed about.”

“They worshiped him but some doubted…It’s this group of doubting worshipers that Jesus trusts the future of the church to.”

“We read the book, study the book, we love the book, we memorize the book, we meditate on the book, so that we can get to know the Person, not just so we can get to know the book. Unless we make that final maneuver to see Jesus as the Word of God, we’re doing it wrong.”

“Jesus is the authoritative inerrant, infallible Word of God and scripture is the inspired gift of the Spirit to lead us to Jesus.”

“Hell is never used by the New Testament church in their evangelistic presentations to try and get people to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.”

“Threats don’t help a love relationship… So even if hell does work (to get people to make a decision for Jesus) it works for the wrong reasons.”

“Christian faith, for me, is no longer a static location but a great spiritual journey…what matters most…is not where we are but where we’re going.” This podcast is a gentle invitation to discover a way of faith defined by love. Brian and Jason discuss navigating rejection, stepping away from literalism, and inerrancy in our approach to scripture and faith, and their personal journey of trusting that God is better than our best thoughts about Him.

BRIAN SIMMONS / THE PASSION TRANSLATION

“The bible, minus love, equals false teaching, false living, and fosters an anger in the soul of man.” Brian Simmons, author of The Passion Translation, talks about approaching scripture with a love theology, the oppressive impact of hyper literalism, women in ministry, equality, union, Jesus’ humanity inside the Trinity, the finished work of the cross, and the passionate, powerful, transforming love of God.

NAEEM FAZAL / REIMAGINING GOD

Naeem Fazal, founding pastor of Mosaic Church, and author of Ex-Muslim, talks about deconstruction or reimaging God.

He came and he walked beside us, He said, “I will never leave you, I will never forsake you; you are not alone, you belong.” When we discover this love, we are transformed and we begin to love like He does.
