Do not 'charah' – 'to burn or be kindled with anger'. What (do you) do, when faced with conflicting thoughts within the Bible? How can we be angry and not sin?
Read 'through' Jesus. This carries the theological day. What Jesus say/do? Fit into.
Restating first-Seed principles. Believe we can write, speak, visual-arts… sing, whatever go-public etc, and be heaps more than the sum of those reading, hearing, seeing… feeling, what's going on. Etc.
Need to pray – more important in the main – than all other human activity. Beyond essential upkeep only prayer makes, the most changing differences we need. Opinions differ. The premise, the world can: Be different again. Improve. Matters?
Lot argue, 'will anyway...' for better or worse. Beyond significant influence, through our vain interference. A spinning-top. Round and round and…
So pass the comfort and kicks and be done with.
Or, doesn't in some deep wavy-way, actually exist, anyway? All a-going down into/back into a sludge. Or morph-on next age. And exist-on, a given
Jesus showing the real, proclaims the way we can be – is for hope. Uncomfortable, not all certain along the way. In hope… God made. We can do = this could… should, happen. Don't, well – doesn't.
Ought to prophecy or try. And be more done with, think-writing letters to fans. Better a short paragraph that engages the powers than a pontificating page. Can I pray as go? Truth is, not so (easily). Therefore, if requires brevity. Gotta amen.
One misunderstanding in life is believing everyone's a Christian. Long-held tendency, in reaction to being around St Inepts. Evangelicals and most-all 'post-' varieties being – discerned thus – La La.
Do I write this, comparing myself and self-righteous? No. No, no. Been as/even/more annoying. AWOL into crazy waters. Did less than those holding some ground on a local, with a family – having friends.
Because of this personal analysis, I despair. Yet in church circles, find every last best about and encourage, with all my might. This and self-esteem blues.
Me fish outa…
Skirting around writing:
Christians are supposed to be hated. According to Jesus, this the equation. Such love, openness, kindness, generosity, peacemaking, evangelism, activism against empire, prophetic leading… the Cross of Christ – should cause reaction. Psychotic, complacency or with good reason (If the Bible seen/is 'all fairies' etc)?
But it's not this. Deeper. Sub or unconscious, is where the claim God's Spirit, combined with the witness works. Here action. Therefore told, don't fret. This happens. We're bound to be evil-done against. This is what evil – was never... 'for'/not intended – does:
Attempt to destroy the face of God is love. Somehow – in a deception – circumvent judgement. The only way to achieve, is have the world 'go-along'. Misery likes company.
This why the wind-up. Good-er in heart will be seen for what is. Usually have 'God-fear' and a fair due respect. Lack frustration. Rather move toward God, as in Jesus, than fight-against.
Not so case with a lotta truthers. Believe got the line on 'this-God and squad stuff. Babylonian myth-making Illuminati co-opt.' Knows it. They do. All but sufficiently liberal or stridently trad-evangelicals are… St Inept. 'They' in their mind, speaks for themselves.
Reckon the name and very concepts. Still grate and rile. Because? Communication beyond words.
Frustration-making is like wallpaper. Every turn. For church and the 'truth' camps. Both – should – aspire revival. Have global hopes. Adds struggling.
Great eh? Can't find compadre(s)? Anyone on the cause and Jesus-first?
And those on truthing but ain't in/to Christ – should, if Jesus correct and touch into me, not warm along. Aside from my not-likeables, to the degree I'm getting it together – conviction. So saith claims.
Peace-making always has me assuming 'people of peace' until otherwise discovered. And even then 'lack faith' this isn't the case. But ain't the way. Why should I doubt Jesus? Whatever of God in me, should upset. Or draw towards. Either/or – not a commendation.
Course. Religio strut and speak, is not a stumbling block of Christ but blind faith. On this, those on the liberty cause, I find listening to some Jesus-talk in awoken company, truly painful.
Bit of a chest-clearing post this. Why Christians so whacky? Sounding guff.
However long I've got in this world. Maybe find some way to eat and a roof-up. If led, would withdraw, completely. Maximum monk. And go out warring in word and loving deeds.
('pity this busy monster, manunkind' by E.E. Cummings and 'a good universe next door; let's go' comes t'mind). A better place to be called in. Listened to fella called Brother John on the net the other day. Endearing. Put-out an “honest... anyone got an opportunity I can take”. Empathised.
Have my place here and opportunity knocks (thankful as) but when not-a-working. Gotta pray.
Rapping up. Dream last night and this m'proclaimer; The Way of Love and not a fret about opposing peep. The disparaging to the cross. And now, no fret.
God be with me. Reclaim your ground. In me I invite. Come in and deep God. As already are. Open eyes and power through. Amen.
