This could not be avoided. Due to the fact that traditional Christianity has changed the meaning of the word “Faith” to render it a profanity, God has no choice but to fight back with some powerful words of His own.
God’s Faith-Bomb is going to hit us with all the ground-shaking impact of the Second Coming. This bomb from “above” will obliterate all the false ideas that have entered into our heads concerning the definition of true Faith.
Faith has come to be erroneously understood as mere belief that the Lord is Savior, and, the hope that this belief alone will indeed save us. Totally wrong!
The profanation of Faith involves the dirty thought that Christians are above the Law.
Yet, when the Lord was in the world, He described the secret to getting into heaven was “Loving the Lord above everything else,” and “Loving the neighbor as yourself.” All God’s commandments hang on these two spiritual activities.
True Faith is a verb. Faith provides humankind with actionable information.
However, traditional religion will counter and defend its false position concerning true Faith by saying that we are full of (Original) sin and that only God’s grace can cleanse us of this predicament. This cursed notion allows humankind to believe that it can escape introspection and the responsibility of free moral agency.
God’s F-Bomb reaction to Christianity’s false notion of immunity is the revelation that no sin can be removed that a worshipper does not identify within him or herself (then seeks the Lord to have it removed). To change one’s life requires changing what we do in life – not later in some heavenly realm, but NOW!
As I have maintained in past posts, heaven is not a place you go to, it is something you become (with the Lord’s help).
So “ka-boom” to the idea that salvation does not require our full cooperation. Religion is walking with God. This means living rightly, by incorporating God’s dictates and tenets into our lives (and removing hurtful and negative tendencies).
Faith is the knowledge of love, and therefore, love is Faith put into action. Mere head-faith indeed allows the Lord God to be present with us, but acts of selfless and mutual love is what conjoins God to our hearts and the life of our soul.
Faith has become distorted over time because false doctrines have been concocted and confirmed by the various subjective interpretations of the literal sense of the narratives in God’s Holy Word. To remedy this, God’s F-bomb will fall from the clouds of this doctrinal obscurity that hangs over our heads.
In Revelation, the Apostle John witnessed God’s F-Bomb coming out of the clouds, and exploding into the events leading to Armageddon. This divine F-Bomb will blow out all the doors of perception from false beliefs by releasing the hidden power of the deeper meanings contained within the literal sense of Scripture.
This ultimate event of “shock and awe” is to be played out on the battlefield of our hearts and minds. God’s F-Bomb will wipe out all our antiquated paradigms; changing the world as we know it. It will make all things anew.
Seeking the deeper truths within the stories of Scripture is the secret to setting this bomb off.
