A Pinch of Salt - God is GOOD

The GOOD News: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him. THAT'S IT IN A NUTSHELL.



THE whole chebang IN A NUTSHELL

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”


"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news."


Nuggets in a Nutshell


300 Individuals Unearthed so far From a Shallow Grave

A charismatic 'pastor' convinced and coerced devoted followers, in the name of God, to suffocate their children and starve themselves to death in preparation for the imminent return of Jesus.

They are dead; he is in jail allegedly preparing to absolve himself of culpability. Upon his arrest he shouted, "Praise Jesus." More bodies are expected to be found and exhumed from these shallow forest graves (more details here).

Here is one of the reported scriptural commands of this so-called Good News International Church, which was being used to qualiify these murders and suicides as sacred acts: you must die to self to be alive with God! (This is a typical kind of thing CULTS do to CONTROL the innocent, fearful, desperate, trapped, and needy). It is the kind of perversity parroted in ignorance and-or for thievery, rendering individuals haplessly vulnerable to evil.

Such unconscionable catastrophes draw attention. There is an even greater tragedy unburied all around us. This very kind of corruption disables countless individuals rendering each a walking dead, bumbling under dangerous doctrines & toxic beliefs ripped from scriptures, deprived of the vitality of a soul alive, limping across earth shut off from the fresh breaths of the goodness of life, CONFUSED, all done in the name of God.

Wake up! Arise. Step into the light.

Are YOU in a CULT and DON'T KNOW you are? 
Are YOU recruiting into a CULT and not aware you are? 
Are YOU coercing others to follow YOUR BELIEFS?







Here is The biblical GOOD News: God so loved the world, he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him. THAT'S IT.



My Dear,

if you take my words to heart,
if you set store by my commandments, turning your ear to wisdom,
turning your heart to understanding, yes, if your plea is for clear perception,
if you cry out for understanding, if you look for it as though for silver,
search for it as though for buried treasure,
then you will understand what the fear of the Lord is, and discover the knowledge of God.
For the lord himself is giver of wisdom, from his mouth issue knowledge and understanding.


A Sparkling Gem

"‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” JESUS the CHRIST

A snippet from scripture:
I am that I am; m-hm, I will never leave you nor forsake you.


{ We've only known God to be Awesome Good. FULL STOP. That's the story we share. There are many other stories. God's kingdom is rich and diverse and spectacular. We share OUR story. And listen to others. And are enriched. And applaud. }



Nicolette Sowder

"Give me the wild children with their bare feet and sparkling eyes. The restless, churning climbers. The wild ones using their outside voices, singing all the way home. Give me the wonder-filled, glorious mess makers dreaming of mountains and mud, aching to run through a field of stars."


Dr Robert Singleton, MD

Isaiah, the Prophet

"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners."

Bishop Gene Robinson

"It's funny isn't it? That you can preach a judgmental and vengeful and angry God and nobody will mind. But you start preaching a God that is too accepting, too loving, too forgiving, too merciful, too kind . . . and you are in trouble."

Desmond Tutu

"You may be surprised at the people we find in heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.."

- Not for The Prize -

There is a prize. Many perform for the prize. Some folks become religious in hope of access to heaven. That's the prize. Some folks become religious to escape hell. That's the prize. Some folks become religious bargaining for a better chance. That's the prize. Some folks become religious in fear of God's wrath. That's the prize. Some folks become religious for membership into the club. That's the prize. Some are simply enthused for the competition. They do it for the prize. This list is not exhaustive. There is a prize.

Many are consciously not in it for its religion. Therein is a prize. Yes, there is a prize, but some are not in it for the prize. Regardless, there is a prize. Whether that prize is a crown, or jewels, or incorruptible treasures, or an irresistible promise, or riches, or showers of favor; there is a prize.

Which is better? This is not a better-than-ism reveal.

Yes, there is a prize.

For whatever it is worth, I'm not in it for the prize; I AM in THE FAMILY, all rights granted preserved.

No claim of this being better-than those other incentives. I have never been in "it" for the prize. There was no compare and pick. Belief. Just knowing my blood-line, just being FAMILY, oooh-weee, the Great Creation - In Likeness & Image - Not substittuted - Born of - wow! Redeemed. Sparkles. Now that's not the full of it, but I'll pause. FAMILY.

Horror humans do to other humans and to this home of ours (the planet with which we are entrusted), whatever that human's purpose or push or disposition or intention might be. It's tragic.

That cannot be ignored, but back to The FAMILY dynamic, the poetry of the breath of life.

I never needed a bait. Never needed an enticement. Never needed a scare. From the get go - belief - this being, this becoming, as a blood-born-member of THE FAMILY, my journey shot into orbit so extraordinarily enlivening, NO PRIZE has yet commanded my attention or consideration.

I am noting an emphatic differentiation, not at all highlighting any bit of better-than-ism. Creation is fruitfully diverse. Gloriously so. You see, there is a welcome awareness that each and every person comes to the moment, to the cross, to the crossroads, to the light, arriving from their own home of experience and with their own baggage of belongings and with their own intention, and NONE put together is the same as yours or mine. To thus presume your wonder-moment, your miracle, your transformation, or anyone else's, or mine, must be the blue-print for any other person's profession or accounting is an arrogance, a hubris, a thievery, to which I am purposed not to subscribe. Life's diversity is extravagantly enriching. And aren't we enormously grateful? Isn't it something to behold folks living out their lives in the midst of so many different circumstances, some rising like a phoenix, some soaring, some flying, some just winking at you with an oh-well; ahh, humans being and becoming? Ooh! That's awesome.

Dear God, grant me victory today over all that assails. Help me square up to even the greatest challenges and claim authority over them, unafraid. Amen.

_ Joshua Dubois

The Bible



"It was not enough to come and listen to a great sermon or message every Sunday morning and be confined to those four walls and those four corners. You had to get out and do something."

- John Lewis
