“To commit one’s life to the Jesus Reality is far more than an intellectual undertaking. While the Reality of Jesus is a perspective, it is not a worldview in the sense of a particular cosmology, or a body of doctrinal knowledge requiring assent. Rather it is a Word that addresses our lives and speaks to our human condition. It demands that we examine our own hearts, take inventory of our human failings, and open our lives to forgiveness and grace. It breaks the illusions of our self-importance and self-reliance, and calls us to recognize the Spirit reality that already exists in our midst and already lives in our hearts.” 0 likes
“Reality does not force itself on anyone...But just because the Word as reality does not force itself on the world does not mean that the choice one makes in relation to this reality is without consequence...John declares that Jesus, as the revelation of reality, is not one reality among others, but Reality itself. To miss living in this Reality is to miss life itself.” 0 likes
