It’s about Love, stupid!
A post by Neil Hart on Homosexuality, LGBTI lesbian and gay stuff and the Lutheran Church of Australia.
Quite a lot of comments on the blog recently. Some of it delved into centuries old theological controversy about antinomianism. If you dont know what that means you could google it but i wouldnt recommend it. You will get just as lost in the irrelavancies as they did in the 16th century when it all happened. But basically, it was all about the laws in the Bible. What do they mean for today? Do old testament laws still apply? Are there new testament laws? How do we understand them? Do they apply today?
And somehow, in the middle of it all, Jesus’ simple, unique, world changing message of love, which he both spoke about and lived, gets lost.
Maybe thats what i was trying to say in these previous posts.
Anyway, today I saw 2 things that lifted my spirits back out of the mud of theological irrelevancies and back to the heart of God.
One was the most recent comment by Tapio. I use it here without his permission. (SO? SUE ME TAPIO! My team of lawyers are standing by!)
And the second thing that lifted me? A cartoon from David Hayward at nakedpastor.com
Thanks David. Thanks Tapio.
Somehow…today feels pretty good :)
BTW David at nakedpastor.com has cartoons, art and books for sale. Well worth a look.
