Listen now (26 mins) | How We Got Here: Using Jesus as a Means to an End
It’s so helpful how clearly you put into words thoughts I ( and imagine so many in this community ) have. I find it interesting how some who “look to Jesus as a means to an end “can view those in the “deconstructing” community as taking the easy way. When in reality it is quite the opposite. It’s easy to just say a prayer, assume you have this free ticket to afterlife and No longer need to care about this one.
I am not surprised that when I entered into this world of “deconstruction “that what I found was a community of people that went deeper into their faith, allowed themselves to start seeing.. all of it.. the beauty as well as the pain..the suffering .. the hurt.,.and that despite not knowing all the answers or having all the solutions have decided to not look away but commit to learn, grow, connect, and find ways to bring “Heaven to earth. “
