I thought as our first assignment a spinoff of a review by Jeremy Myers of “Redeeming God Ministries.” He said among other things, “Truly, this is an insightful idea. I only wish that the author had spelled this idea out in more detail and had explained more of the tough texts of Scripture in light of her position.” I thought I had written enough that those desiring to work out other instances of God's appearing to violate everything He has told us about Himself could do so. But perhaps not. And perhaps some need more “fill in” to really come to a solid belief that our God is only beneficent. Are you willing to take on the challenge? With this as our directive, perhaps some will wish to write about one event in sacred history that has escaped our notice, and I am well aware that many on this email list have the intellectual capacity to explain it thoroughly and well. Those of you who might wish to take another direction are most welcome to do so. Here are a few of the “tough texts” that the reviewer might have had in mind:
11. You may think of something I haven't recorded here. Feel free to share it.
Remember, Jesus is the measure, the standard, the full revelation of the Father. That is the one point on which I think we can all agree!
Lastly, and this is the most important part. The whole point of this Facebook page is to get the message out. Michael has convinced me not to give the book away. People are accustomed to paying for something they want, and the price of the book, especially the condensed version, is not outside the pocketbook of most people. Sharing the postings on the Facebook site will be enormous. So share, share, share. When you read something that slants differently from the way it is generally seen, share it with your other social media friends. I can't emphasize this too much.
While I finally see my way clear to get this message out to a wider audience by implementing the strategy described herein, I am open to other suggestions that may enable us to find an even wider audience. In closing let me refer you to our fathers and the ancestors who have gone before us. Some of them knew this message; we have their letters and other documents to prove it. But they had no way to make the message “go big.” People, do you realize what a blessing the Internet is to getting this message out? They didn't have it; we do! As God is for us, and we have the Internet, we certainly can expect great things from our time here on the earth. Let's not waste it!
