The Islamic, Zen, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, and Anybody JESUS.
The other day I made a New Friend in Saudi Arabia and it has prompted me to meditate harder in an area I was already flowing in.
Our form of Christianity in America and therefore how we reflect JESUS to the world is to over the top, in your face, bigger is better.
Everything about Faith in America is a Circus with various ringmasters, introducing ever more elaborate acts. Its all sound and fury, shock and awe, intended to say in its own kind of way “who’s your Daddy?”
Now in a world where people walk a little more humble buy several magnitudes to the power, we need to seriously challenge and deconstruct how we Market JESUS.
So I have a Question that I hope will lead to some creative Spirit led thinking.
That question is what does
I want to look at all the ways we tell people how to become followers of JESUS, because and let me be honest here we are dropping the ball big time people.
Let me drop a few ideas into the lap of our consciousness and see what evolves.
What if we encouraged people to know a Father God who according to JESUS is a lover, but we let them do it in secret?
What if we taught them that loving each other in public was the only Confession they needed?
What if we only had to share the Sermon on the Mount with them?
What if we encouraged them to baptize themselves in the privacy of their own homes, whether that is Saudi Arabia or Tokyo Japan? Only with a great cloud of angelic on lookers, in the presence of the Living God?
What if we required no understanding of theology at all, just JESUS introducing them to a Loving God through the Spirit?
What if we did not demonize their Holy Books but told them Love is the only voice to listen to, and if they heard any teaching against love to pray for that person?
What if we built no more churches but became the Body of Christ behind the scenes like Dark Matter in the Universe?
What if we trusted the Spirit of the living God and de-institutionalize this thing called Evangelism?
What if JESUS is the Savior of the world and we have it all wrong, because we are trying to keep our church and theological systems alive?
What if we told people they could go to any place of worship and have a secret as Mary did, deep in their hearts?
What if this changed the world from the inside out?
More to come…
