Whatever Happened To Love – De La Moya
The Secret Meaning of the First Verse of the Bible
YOU are the church, and God sees YOU as holy, righteous and perfect! Religion is a shame based behaviour modification system. Modern “Christianity” is religion presented in a variety of attractive varieties, all of which rely on fear of loss and hope of gain in one form or another, as their millennia old tools of negotiation.
How many denominations of Christianity are there?? Does it really even matter? It only takes two to be a scandal! What is the scandal? Simply put, multiple thousands of Christian sects all claim that the selfsame Holy Spirit led them to highly divergent positions from which they would happily kill each other over doctrine alone. 200,000 denominations would make it no more scandalous and 2 would make it no less!

As a biblical scholar, after I have uncovered a particularly unsavory truth about the biblical text, I am inevitably asked, “So are you saying you don’t believe the BIBLE?” And here is my answer.
“I believe the Bible…
enough to seek to understand not only what it says but what it means.
enough to study the context of the text.
This Week’s Powercast
Christianity is many to one, but the gospel is one to many!
Wow! What a powercast this week we had. We opened the mailbag to Doug Salonen and Dan Randolph.
The star of the show however, was Michael Lilborn Williams, as we reverse engineered 2 Timothy 1:12 and he unpacked the context paragraph by paragraph.
This was indeed one NOT to miss, ad to tuck away amongst your specials. It will make a great outreach tool and we are going to showcase the main message on the front page at www.gospelrevolution.com for quite some time.
Some time back, I was attacked publicly after two decades, by a former confidante and preaching/teaching traveling companion, Jim Richards. Jim would say that he did not identify me specifically, but those who knew me twenty years ago and have followed the evolution and progress of the Gospel Revolution and Mike Williams Ministries, are in no doubt as to whom Jim Richards is referring.
While I am at a loss as to just why Jim published this now, 20 years since I last saw him, we have reproduced his diatribe directly from his own website, and answered it sentence by sentence, in a 31 podcast series starting here, by the series title of “The Grace Imposter.

What do you feel is more important? What you think about God? Or what God thinks about you? When I ask this in most religious settings, I get the response that what we think about God is most important. After I tell folks that they are wrong, I offer them the proof, by explaining to them that on what they call “Judgement Day”, their religion teaches that they will be at the mercy of what God thinks about them. God has already passed judgement on this world and everybody in it. 2 millenia ago at a place called Calvary. And in Jesus, God judged you to be holy, righteous and perfect in His eyes.

“Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others…he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” Robert F. Kennedy

If I could have convinced more slaves that they were slaves, I could have freed thousands more – Harriet Tubman.
The two worst addictions I ever had – Cocaine and Religion! One took all my money, destroyed my relationships, filled me with fear and paranoia, shut down my ability to hear from God, and the other was a white powdery substance. – Beres Bartlett
“There will be a day when humanity looks backs at religion the same way sane people now view slavery, treating women as chattel or gay people as being mentally ill or sinful. And they will ask, “What were they thinking?” And the answer will be that the religious were still eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil instead of drinking from the River of Life.” – Glenn Klein
