There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.
For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
1 John 4:18
I haven’t been able to be online much because every single source—left and the right—pushes fear.
People either do not know God or take a too literal and dogmatic view of 2,000-year old interpretations.
People know the religion about Christ’s suffering but not the actual teachings of Jesus.
I realize the further I go into my individualized relationship with God, the more alienated I’ll be.
TDS will hate me for not obeying.
MAGA will hate me for not being angry.
Christians will hate me for being “unscriptural”.
And so on. But that’s okay. Because I know deep within my heart/soul/life I am devoted to God the Father, Jesus as his Son, and the brotherhood of mankind.
It’s not about sacrifice, suffering, or fear-mongering—those were insertions and infiltrations of the gospel.
Our job is to reform the word—“drain the religious swamp” so to speak—and share it to all who have ears to hear.
Let’s take it easy.
Because God Wins.
