“The truth that makes us free is always ticking away like a time-bomb in the basement of everybody’s church. And that truth isn’t a bunch of ideas. It’s Jesus. Sooner or later, if we just sit still and listen, he’ll blow the lid off any prison we’ve built.”
– Robert Capon, The Mystery of Christ… & Why We Don’t Get It
All is Jesus.
We can’t escape him. We can’t rule him out. Our only option is give in and accept that all is Jesus. We can’t add anything to him. We can’t take anything from him. Our only option is to accept him as he is.
There’s only one problem with this, we don’t. We like to think we do, but we don’t. We, as humans, need shelter. We need structure. We need barriers and protection.
God doesn’t play well with our structures. He plays well with His structure. He gave mankind a structure that points to Him.
He is a ” jealous God”. He doesn’t play well with others. He loves us too much to allow us to depend on anything less than Him alone. Because believing in anything less than Him is a prison.
