Contemplative Monk : Intentional Spirituality Transforms

Church House Rules



I encounter so many legalists fighting over Church House Rules, who’s right, who’s wrong, who’s in and who’s out.

Now, I find God’s grace and wisdom everywhere I turn. I take the Franciscan view that all creation is the first gospel pointing us to God. So I see science as an ally of my faith. I see God has not left himself without a witness in every tribe, and culture, and religion on earth, just not the whole shebang. So as I encounter legal eagles devouring whom they may…

Here’s My Witness

Jesus fulfilled the whole law, all 613 commandments, he summed up the law in two, Love God and Love Your neighbour as yourself, which are apart of the 613 he fufilled, and then Jesus gave us only one new commandment to replace it. “A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so also you must love one another. By this, all men will know that you are My disciples if you love one another.”¬†¬†Love in the same way is the proof, not the law. The law is created in its limitations, superseded by the grace of God. Love wins!

If you want to keep the law, have at it, But as for me, I choose Jesus.
