Favorite Verse:  “Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.  For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness of from God that depends on faith…” (Philippians 3:8-9)

All Things

Unity: Final Thoughts (6)

06/19/2019

As I wrap up, at least for now, some thoughts on “oneness” and “unity,”  I find that such is anchored in two things: 1) paradigm, and 2) personal intent.  Having a theological paradigm which lends itself toward a healthy view of God and subsequent love of others is critical.  But without an honest personal desire […]
