To the shape of GOD

To all the shapes and sizes of GOD made in HIS image To all evil, vile as a veil separating us from GOD To GOD calling our switched off hearts and to voicemail prayer-lines. To all the unknown sins that GOD must forgive us for not knowing To knowing everything because GOD made sure of that To all the times we've grieved GOD By lowering the volume of HIS voice in us To all the mistakes we've made tying to edit the stories of us which GOD HAS written To all the plot-twists of our lives that GOD laughs over

Answering the Question of HOW: A Letter

For the Christian, “how” addresses the process in its entirety and even though we can affirm that we would not know everything and the mechanisms that bring them, we are left to contend with the very crack in our faith when asked the process of it all. But not the Christian alone. Ask how the big bang happened...oh-yes, we are getting somewhere. You'll be asked how GOD happened, too, and then we can all begin to scratch at the very feebleness of our wits. But one of us would be closer if we took opposing sides – that's for sure.

A REPLY TO THE LEGION

There is this fear of the followers which guides them to protect the opinion of their leader. "The leaders has to be right,'' says the follower. If the leader is sane then we are sane for following a sane person. If the leader is foolish, then we are all fools one way or the other. The follower falls prey to defending the leader because in so doing, the follower is defended. If you strike the head, the body does fall and so the body defends the head one way or the other. If you want to dispatch the sheep, hang the shepherd. It happens to the best of us, when the integrity of the head is at stake, the body either defends the head or seeks ways to self-preserve the rest of the members. The best of humanity knows this: attack the problem and the symptoms shall flee. Elijah knew this when he challenged Baal through the Carmel Mountain contest.

THE TEACHER’S TRUST

If we don't say these things the way we should – the way that pleases GOD and exalts HIM above our intentions, we shall be judged. If we are not teachers when we should be, we shall be judged and if say we are teachers when – indeed – we should not be, we shall be judged for that which we were not made to defend seeing that we have abandoned our job for the protection of the interest of heaven upon the earth.

Separation of Faith and Works: The Manifestation.

Faith which is heard should be seen as much as it should be heard. Seen by others who have not heard and confirmed by others who do as they have heard. Faith is strongest in its confirmation from many points. In order for faith to achieve completeness, faith should never be separated from our actions.
