Well, I’ve never looked at the Gospel THAT way before…

I’m not saying this is the best way to view the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I’m not saying this is a complete way to view the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I’m not even saying this is an accurate way to view the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

All I’m saying is that it has been really interested to think about things along these lines instead of the one I was given growing up.

These concepts have caused me to dwell deeply on the work that Jesus did, what it accomplished and how it is applied into our lives… my life.

The fruit in my life has been: searching scripture, inquisitive prayer, good conversations with trusted friends and consistent peace, knowing that God is not far away.

Feel free to disagree. I probably will disagree with myself at some point in the future. For now, it’s helpful, but it’s not the end of the process.

I have a lot to learn.

I’d love to hear other perspectives.

Be nice in Facebook threads and blog comments.

All?! Is that in Bible? HERESY!!!

“Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.”

-Romans 5:18

Hmmm… Alright, I’ll keep reading… but, for the record, I’m suspicious!

Matt 6:10

I’d like to point out that I’m not saying that all people will go to heaven. According to 2 Thess. 1:8-9 people are eternally separated from God, not because of sin, but because they refused to believe and respond to the good news of Jesus. Separation from God is a real thing that is coming for some, but what if it has more to do with faith than sin?

I apologize for the bad penmanship, surfer-dude language and unedited illustrations. When I wrote/drew this out, I had no idea I would make it into a blog one day.

I hope you’ve enjoyed a peek into my inner thought life/journal/deep musings.

    Love, love, love this! I love the message (which I think is quite accurate), the creativity, the humor, even the bad penmanship and the surfer-dude language! LOL! … You could turn this into a Christian comic, coloring book, or maybe a children’s book that would help kids (or even some adults) to better understand The Bible. How awesome would that be?! Create more! Do more! I believe that you could do great things with this concept by using it as a way to share other Biblical stories of The Bible. Please pray on that and see where GOD leads you! Thank you so much for sharing this! Best wishes and infinite blessings to you! 🙂
