Exuberant and extravagant. Calling to and about God is the antithesis of almost everything going. What crazy madness must all the sing-to-Jesus seem. Yes and some a bit wacky and muds the waters with bystanders. Not genuine expression but show-time and whipped up frenzy. Although, find some decent and passion? Lost in God. And . . .
God's claim to justice comes through a determination not to violate our freedom to choose. The cost in what happened at the cross. Jesus' living and choices bringing about a capacity for us to receive just-positioning. Towards this unimaginable epic and a man dying -- the battle for people. Every individual and those yet to . . .
Instructions are 'keep on the day-in, and pray-on'. Ought to be all and enough to consume and captivate. What about wants or even needs? Something to happen, or a provision (or not) to come?

Lenin's 'best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves'. Never been more crucial and destructive than among so-called 'faith teaching'. The antidote to the only true threat to evil. Because -- how can we wiggle out the outrageous claims of Christ? Oh, I know, say all is foreknown, then and at best, . . .
Meeting God in the next body once this one dies will be traumatic beyond comprehension. The holy heat of love ripping through in the unstoppable destruction of all but that which is new and alive in us. Gifted eternal life, depending on Christ inside thereby renewing, we're able to stand. We're not living on but die again, . . .
Writing 'Church-going is a paddling pool in the sunshine' is incorrect. Bambozzled to forget there's a Persecuted Church. No YT videos etc and few outlets to unsettle our familiar focus. The comment was about UK/US and like 'goers' and impressions conveyed? Of course, there's suffering but the general put on . . .
