THIS IS A “MASK FREE” ZONE!
Which means, we check our masks at the door and walk in the reality of a life of faith that is sometimes, messy, disappointing, not easy to understand and FILLED with questions.
A SLEDGEHAMMER ZONE!!
We break down the walls of pretense and hypocrisy that, so often, is the face of our experience with religion and people of faith. [This is not a slam. I highly respect leaders in the faith who have paved the way and held my hand to lead me through some very tough waters] This is simply to echo the statement of Paul in Galatians 3:1-3 THE MESSAGE:
“You crazy Galatians! Did someone put a hex on you? Have you taken leave of your senses? Something crazy has happened, for it’s obvious that you no longer have the crucified Jesus in clear focus in your lives. His sacrifice on the cross was certainly set before you clearly enough.
Let me put this question to you: How did your new life begin? Was it by working your heads off to please God? Or was it by responding to God’s Message to you? Are you going to continue this craziness? For only crazy people would think they could complete by their own efforts what was begun by God. If you weren’t smart enough or strong enough to begin it, how do you suppose you could perfect it? Did you go through this whole painful learning process for nothing? It is not yet a total loss, but it certainly will be if you keep this up.”
I’m talking about busting to pieces, the lies we believe and tell ourselves about our experience with God that keeps us in a place of striving to earn His love and acceptance instead of walking in the freedom He purchased for us through His Son, Jesus.
I’m talking about breaking down the walls that separate us from other people of faith and oftentimes from our intimacy with God, because we feel pressured or compelled to live up to a faith ideal that looks nothing like the life of faith lived out by the great cloud of witnesses in Hebrews 11.
