JUXTAPOSITION / TOUR / CONSUMPTION / SUBSEQUENT.

This post is to provide a perspective of the direction that my blog will progress for an undetermined amount of time. The next several posts will include thoughts and questions on:

  • giving and the juxtaposed consumerism of the supposed celebration of Jesus entering earth in the form of man.
  • the neo-lecture given by Rob Bell as introduced in the post below entitled "THE GODS ARE NOT ANGRY TOUR."
  • philosophical wonderings that consume much of my mind.
  • life experiences and the subsequent production of community, journey, and revelation of truth.
Please excuse the effect that modernism has had on me as revealed by my use of bullets in the above list.

I can never forgive such a blatant conformity. It's so much more convenient isn't it?

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
