Through my eyes or His?Its time to shift to the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.In His eyes ARE many things.In our eyes we carry the painful reality of a "gospel like "pattern that shows us a way that robs us backwards,forwards and around.I guess if it didnt really seem real we wouldnt be calling it "gospel like".I think it [fake message]has gone unoticed way to long and we DO NOT make enough of a stink about it as we should.This fake message destroys.It reinterpits our whole outlook.It makes us dumb,cupped up,and not asking any questions for fear of punishment.Lets break it wide open!Hold nothing back,be honest,be as open as you would like to...lets see the real thing,the real Jesus we all knew was really there for us since from the begining! Iam growing more suspicios of my Bible...it might not be the legalistic guide to life i thought...the pendulim is swaying,its moving the other way..look its moving !

Wow, Adam, what words of life and freedom!!!  Yes, yes, we should be very suspicious of all this "gospel like" message we find in the religious world!!  And isn't it amazing that something as simple as gut-level realism and honesty?  Religion hides in the shadows, but the real life of Christ in us does indeed smash it to pieces!!

Yes, Richard, I most definitely agree with you, for I love seeing Sherri's postings here as much as anybody else does.   

I am thrilled with all the life that is flowing so freely here.  It impacts us all in a big way!!
