WITHOUT LIMIT IS JESUS AS YOU
Indeed. Many live like peasants instead of kings and priests because they have trusted people who have lied to them. People believed the world was flat out of ignorance. Other resisted truth because their status was joined to old ideas. Why let truth get in the way of your influence, status and career? Why question our sense of entitlement to live the way we do? Why not just destroy the earth?!
Not all are blind leaders of the blind. But many who are sighted and can see the truth because they value it as life itself can be cast as disloyal, subversives and defective in character by the marketers of religion. Jesus prophesied this. We promote religion rather than life when our identity in a religious culture and its beliefs is more important to us than our relationship with Jesus. We spread gangrenous flesh when we compromise truth so that the ability of people under our influence to reach their full potential as sons and daughters of God is compromised.
‘If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea’ Mark 9.42 NIV. Little ones can be trusting gullible, brainwashed people.
In The Undoing of Adam, C Baxster Kruger writes, “The Christian God is interested in relationship with us, and not just relationship, but union, and not just union, but such a union that everything He is and has—all glory and fullness, all joy and beauty and unbridled life—is to be shared with us and to become as much ours as it is His. The plan from the beginning, in the Christian vision, is that God would give Himself to us, and nothing less, so that we could be filled to overflowing with the divine life.”
This is the gospel in fullness and completeness. No money-changing here. No quick footwork designed to create the illusion that our is Christ’s gospel. No abridged gospel to satisfy the merchants of the law because the law that is for sinners. Christ’s gospel of the Kingdom is for the sons of God and the Multipliers of Life.
‘We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me’ 1 Tim 1.9-11 NIV.
* A christ who lives under the law and supports the law is a false christ.
+ There is much to be said for bringing heaven to earth by miracles and signs. But heaven invading earth means the end of capitalism and the spirit of Egypt pretending to be the Kingdom of God.
# The law of the spirit of life is relationship. It is belongingness in Christ. The cosmos holds together in the person of God. To be in Christ is to be in harmony with the trinity and with the right functioning of the cosmos.
