I'm pretty sure that John the Baptist preaching repentance marked the existence of the Kingdom.
They call what I am speaking of "imammentizing the Eschaton" a great "heresy" according to Church decree. In other words, do not DARE to declare, as Jesus did, the coming of the kingdom of heaven, lest everyone fall victim to a "moral reletavism".
Not sure what you are talking about. I'm the only other person posting on this thread today so I have to assume you mean me.
Who do I think I am? (I know you think this and judge me).
Who do I think I am? (I know you think this and judge me). I am the bride of Christ, and while I haven't always been the best and most loyal of wives, nevertheless, I am his beloved and am given access to whatever I need to know. The how and why of this is a mystery to me, maybe it's because, as a prodigal son, he who's been forgiven more, loves more, and because God can bestow his riches on whoever he likes. That said, I will and can do better, but that is nobody's business but me and the Lord's as my husband. It is for no one else to judge, although i should point out that while I'm a straight man, all Christians, as receptacles of the Word, are to Christ, as women to their husband, and that integration between our masculine and feminine aspects is vital to our growth and maturity in Christ and the kingdom life.
