Leaving & Finding Jesus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With grace and humor, Jason juxtaposes an inclusive, reconciling, self-giving, unconditional view of God’s love against an excluding, hierarchal, punishment-focused, conditional view of God’s love. 

Jason introduces the book he is currently working on, Leaving (& Finding) Jesus, which challenges readers to stop building their faith upon the broken foundations of a transactional view of God, and instead, embrace the powerful understanding of reconciliation and self-giving love that truly transforms our lives and our world.

QUOTES

“God removed the veil, literally, figuratively, metaphorically; every veil that man’s fallen understanding, our religion of good and evil has put in place, every us and them, for or against, sin conscious veil of separation has been removed. Nothing separates us from the reconciling love of God!”

“We are either moving toward exclusion or inclusion.”

“We need to be having conversations about sin that are not sin conscious.”

“What would the world look like if sons and daughters operated in reconciling love, not counting people’s sins against them, not counting their broken ideologies, their actions against them…:

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

A Wide Open Love…

Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. Everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And the door will be opened for everyone who knocks.

The Skill Saw

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.

Why Mark Driscoll Is My Hero

Mark Driscoll notes in his letter that he desires to grow as “a loving spiritual father.” Mark seems to have had a revelation and decided to pursue the greatest calling on the planet. Like Jesus, he wants to reveal the Father. The world doesn’t need “angry young prophets” but “loving spiritual fathers” would transform it!

The Nature of Soap

Next to the toilet was a large barrel filled with clean-ish water. Floating in the water was a big plastic cup. The cup was for both flushing and bathing. Oh, I forgot to note, the toilet room was also the shower.

Image of the Invisible God

You are the fruit of His suffering; you are the glorious resurrection generation. You are His will done on earth as it is in heaven. You are His pleasure, His beloved.

With humor and authenticity, Lloyd talks about the finished work of the Cross, how Jesus fixed the problem of separation, and our invitation to awaken to our union.
