Twisted Theology

It seems to me that the different outrageous comments that I have recently received were made by two or three different individuals. It is this exact mindset that perpetuates childhood sexual abuse. Their mindset almost condones it. Their mindset lived out, causes much pain and destruction. I do not care how many scriptures they quote, I will never again be swayed by their twisted theology.(Although, for a time, I must admit I was.)

I don't drink Kool-Aid anymore.

We are to apply scripture with context and by the Holy Spirit. Not use it as an excuse to avoid the hard work of facing the reality of ones sins and their real life earthly consequences. What happens in the spirit realm is separate from what needs to happen in the physical. In the spiritual realm,I am redeemed. In the physical,I am a sinner that lives daily with the struggles of my sin nature.

It's frightening to know that there are segments of "the body of Christ" that would overlook childhood sexual abuse and perpetuate more abuse.

Always a problem with "Reformed" or other hardcore "Bible Based" preaching/teaching/following.

Jesus said he would send us a counseler. We need to listen as well as we read. Truth contains paradox is one of my favorite things to keep in mind.

As time has gone by, my "Doctrinal Statement" has gotten smaller and more concise. Jesus. I have many things I hold as conviction that I would not use as a qualifier/test for someone else.

Make the REQUIRED list of things to agree about very small.
