Am I doing it right?

I don’t even know sometimes.

  1. Does a person need to know about Jesus to believe in the Lord Jesus?
  2. What does it mean for the words of Christ to never pass away?
  3. What does it mean for revelation to be “authoritative?”
  4. Why is the New Testament way less concerned about the details of Eschatology than we are?
  5. Why are words so ancient taken literally today? “I do not permit a woman to exercise authority of a man.” Why does this have to reflect God’s “timeless wisdom?” Why can’t it just be a statement from Paul reflecting backwards and sexist cultures that Christ is actively renewing?
  6. What does it mean to “be saved?”
  7. Why do we imagine the God of love to be full of wrath? Yes; wrath is a necessary quality of love (as I think). But why do we imagine that God will pit his wrath against his love? “Because of revelation.” Oh really.

i don’t know, guys. But I take comfort that it was said, “Seek YHWH and live.”
