Luminouré: Walking in The Light

This morning I find myself looking into the books of 2 Peter and 1 John seeking to embrace the truth as it is written rather than as it is thought in my mind. There is a crystal clarity that seems to emerge as I approach this book (the Bible) with an understanding that what it contains is a revelation of the truth that I still only partly know and believe. Furthermore, I am convicted by that which is written to testify of what is true and to reveal how I can know that I walk in it. Some of the...

Luminouré – Part Three: ‘Un-Knowing’

Emerging during the season of life I would describe as that of “un-knowing” all that I had previously held to be true, my Christian faith has languored under the persistence in this sort of state. In the process of change, it is sometimes essential to take apart what has been wrongly constructed, but the purpose of this deconstruction is so that something better might be put in place.My open mind toward knowledge and experience outside the bounds of childish constraints did not prove that I could know nothing, but rather that I knew nothing.

This light has already begun to burst forth in my heart and its rays are casting tender shadows whose height I cannot even begin to comprehend. There is much more here than I had previously imagined.

Contradiction of Tradition

I have often said that Christianity isn’t about doing certain stuff, but about going through life walking with God. At the same time, the only way I knew of going through life in a Christian way was by doing the Christian stuff.   It’s like often happens to me: I know what to do long before I find myself able to do it. Even though I understand this, it still feels like I am trying to push beyond some biblical barrier. The one thing that keeps me confident going this direction is that it has brought me back to my...

3 Instead of taking all the first born children, God took the tribe of Levi. The redemption was 1 for 1. 12 When Aaron and Miriam recognized that Moses’ marriage should have disqualified him from leadership, God did not rationalize their challenge. He simply said “He knows me.” 13 The people were supposed to find out what kind of land they would live in. They were to look at the houses, the land, and the trees. They returned with a report of the people who lived there Why was the land blessed when the people in it were not? 17...
