Author's Brief Testimony
takes a long time to understand the Scriptures
recorded in the Holy Bible. Not many
who call themselves Christian believers desire
to spend any amount of time studying the Bible.
Too many are ungrounded in the truths and promises
of the word of God. What about this Bible?
To you Is it history or fable? Is the Bible
partly true and partly fable? Is the Bible
the Word of God and relevant
to life in the 21st Century?
The apostle Paul was academically brilliant, and well situated in his Jewish religion. Yet, after his encounter with the living presence and power of God, he declared that scholarship, philosophy and theology does not lead one to knowing God. Neither theology or human knowledge is a sure pathway to knowing God. Truth and wisdom is a Spiritually derived gift. Spiritual life is outside of religion. For it is only God himself who through the revelation of the Holy Spirit imparts to human beings the necessary understanding and revelation of the Mysteries of God. (Read 1Corinthians Chapters 1 & 2)
are many sects and denominations who do not
hesitate to call their practices "religion"
while other groups, notably the evangelicals,
like to say that the version of Christianity
they practice is not religion. But you will
see as I explain in the course of these writings,
that we can indentify many attributes of Christian
tradition that remain entirely that, religion.
RELIGIOUS ATTRIBUTES INDEED HINDER THE MANIFESTING OF GOD'S KINGDOM
Although Christianity is the outgrowth and fulfillment of Judaic roots there is little acknowledgment of these foundations In the following chapters, we will take some time with these topics.
PERILS, PITFALLS, PROBLEMS OF RELIGION
The principle lesson premise of these writings is that there is more. There is always more to be known and to be experienced. And these experiences are entirely Scriptural consistent with apostolic teachings found in the Bible. The more freedom and liberty is given to the Holy Spirit, the more spiritual life and growth will be "experienced" when those believers gather together. More discipleship serves to activate the 'gift of God' within individuals so that they may bear evidence of The Kingdom of God does the work of the Kingdom until He comes.
Traditionalism in Christian meetings does not perfectly address the great commission, discipleship or freedom in worship. Negative attributes of the Religious paradigm described throughout these writings are the elements which impact faith in negative ways and in fact can actually keep individuals from ever experiencing the life of the Kingdom of God or God's Gift of salvation.
order to escape the restraining power of religious
paradigms, it is time to rethink Christian
religious traditions. We will examine these
in chapter topics in the list above.
