Names except mine, have been changed/omitted to protect the innocent…actually there weren’t any names
Greetings————— (was looking for your name but couldn’t find it)
My name is tony. I’m impressed by the novelty of your blog’s vision statement. Maybe it’s the clarity of the way you’ve stated it. Usually you find Atheists, Believers, “midstreamers”; But you are a sort of self-reconsructionist. I do applaud you. I think I somewhat understand your position fairly well because I have made it a point to do that very thing myself. Just so you know I’m not putting you on you can check the history of my posts and verify my statements to that fact. I am enjoying enormous satisfaction in undertaking that process and feel I’m at the very threshold of realizing my grandest vision.
I’ve come to just be absolutely gobsmacked by the sheer staggering volume of information that believers have become absolutely tone-deafened toward in scripture, almost blinded in the light. I’ve made no secret of stating that I’ve had to undress myself of just everything that I’ve been taught by man. Some of these are very respected men of the faith but if you think of it even the poster-boy of our reformation heritage Martin Luther himself although he made considerable contribution; he was not without his blind spots. Hitler used much of his anti-Semitic sentiments to fuel his persecution of Jews. I could go on for hours on these things, and never quite comprehend the scope of our baffling failings.
At the end of the day I have failed myself, and God’s mandate for me if I cannot produce the Lazarus of my generation for their faith to stand in the power of God. Faith comes by the word of God, but it ultimately must stand in the power of God, for his kingdom is not in word but in resurrection power. Answer the simple question: after you die, are you going to still be human: NO. We’ll be raised up as something different. God has said it to us in so many different ways you could make an alphabet soup of it: WE DON’T HAVE TO DIE TO ATTAIN WHAT WE WILL BE. THAT’S WHAT TRANSFORMATION IS ALL ABOUT (JESUS DIED ALREADY TO GET US BEYOND THAT POINT BY THE FAITH THAT PRODUCES HIM IN US). What we’ve been experiencing for the last 2000 years is shuffling around the same old furniture; the very definition of insanity: doing the same thing and expecting a different resuslt.
Jesus told us point blank: if you believe in me, that faith should be borne out by you doing the same works that I do; because it is no more you that lives, but me who is living in you…..WE ARE A CONTINUATION OF HIS MIRACLE-WORKING LIFE TO THE EXTENT THAT WE BELIEVE IN HIM. He also said if you believe in God, believe also in him (Jesus) who is the one doing the works in us. I can’t understand how for 2000 years we have failed that, and no one seems to question it more vigorously. As for my part, I have to give an answer for myself, so I cannot rely on other people’s excuse to get me by.
