Revolution, not rebellion
I do not know what is going on, I just know that the clock is neutral and time is not. And that with all big movements, there are good, bad, neutral, half-good and half-bad. There is a righteous anger, and there is rebellion. Allow me to describe:
Revolution is the fight to keep ‘these least of God’ alive, and not being persecuted, killed or physically or mentally abused.
Revolution is to love all people, not evaluating their worth or non-worth.
Revolution is to defend the people, by any peaceful means.
Revolution is to say yes or no to gay marriage in a neutral State, rebellion is to arrange these marriages in church.
Revolution is to say God loves gay people, but it is rebellion to have gay marriage in church.
Revolution is to defend people in one country, rebellion is to force equal laws on all countries dispite their history and tradition.
Revolution is to move from traditionalist to compassionate, rebellion is to move from conservative to lawlessness.
I could take revolution, but rebellion is the denial of all good things.
Because we all have been enemies of God, we cannot have subjective morality and practical Marcionism.
The revolution Jesus made, makes and is going to make
Jesus made a revolution of love that is love.
A party of the people in the desert in OT made a rebellion at the water of Zin.
Say most of the revolution is true, and none of the rebellion is good.
We are not making a revolution against the law, but against the false use of the law.
We are not making a revolution against the law, but against the pharisees,
We are not making a revolution against the holiness, but against lack of compassion.
We are not making a revolution against God, but revolution WITH Christ.
So, I lay down all my false conservative images of God, and all my false liberal images of God, and I honour He who lives, whom I meet in Word, Communion and Baptism. He who I grow to know in Spirit and Truth. In him who conquered the pharisees by love, but never tought anyone to break the least of the commandments.
That is revolutionary love.
