You may have heard some of these classic one-liners.
Same schtick, but with theology:
Maybe God wants to send us a message; to forgive our sins; for us to believe in him.
But perhaps these things are not God's priorities. Or they are means, not ends.
Let’s take a closer look at the questions and respond to these questions.
Is the problem that ancient writings lack the authority and accessibility of a monster crucifix orbiting the earth? Consider the likely result. How have people already responded to what they believe to be miraculous messages? For example:
Perhaps our comprehension and our obedience are important. But what if comprehension and obedience are not God's priorities?
Message, schmessage. Does God want to give us a message? God wants to give us Himself.
To be continued... badda boom!
At The Surge we love doing things together... that includes writing a blog! Here are a few of our main contributing authors:
Our fearless leader, Dwaine is the lead pastor at The Surge. His experience in counter terrorism with the CIA prepared him for ministry and he likes dogs and babies even more than E does.
E (short for Eric Reiss) is the Wingman at The Surge and likes dogs, music, Mexican food, his wife Karen and his little girl Evangeline... not necessarily in that order.
