been thinking a lot lately, and more so after some comments today, what
a complicated mess we have made the gospel, what a horrible burden of
half truths and complicated theolgies that all contradict each other. A
huge quagmire of methods, principles, doctrines, and of course every one
is right ;-) But if a child can't understand it, its just all crap!! You can read the bible like its an intruction
manual and study every little nuance of Greek and Hebrew, but so what?!
It was never meant to be an instruction manual on how to "do
It took many years for me to realise that its
just Jesus, Jesus plus nothing. Father's unbelievably outrageous love
for us that defies all logic and cuts through all theology. I don't care
if I never hear another doctrinal statement in my life. I have the
complete life of the truine Godhead living in my right now. He loves me
to bits and never lets me forget it. The more I realise that the more
that love just comes out of me, I can't help it. And it doesn't matter
what doctrines I believe or don't believe because I can trust Him in me,
I can trust Him with every thought that runs through my tired brain.
God IS love, nothing else, it all comes from there. I am finally
realising what it is to truly love God, because he is loving me first. I
will only operate from that place now, even if I stumble because my
mind is still being renewed, I will not take my eyes and heart off Him. I
won't look to doctrines and principles and fads for help. Just Him,
Jesus plus nothing!!
