Re: [CCF] Week 10 Announcements!Thursday, March 09, 2017
Thanks Yuka and Daniel for the updates.
I appreciate having been able to attend the latter part of the Ten C's series and to hear people's analysis. I also appreciated seeing support among group members. I had not planned to attend subsequent meetings, including the upcoming 'grace' meeting. In my opinion, grace and law have not been well delineated and joined in 'rediscoveries' since the Reformation. They were certainly awash prior to the Reformation, in the 'thousand years of church darkness'. I attached my analysis of a key grace passage, John 1:14 – 17. Perhaps you, John, or other people might enjoy its views. It is a significant, yet small part of what is available to consider in the Bible. If you or other people might have comments, such is welcomed. We must not allow ourselves to gloss easy answers which presume total knowledge. Challenge! Life is discovery, and the truth of scripture is bettered by following paths, like begin surprised on a hike that leads through meadows and glens. If society is to find a rational faith about the rational God, with scriptural mechanics that work, we must begin with its elements and make sure we do not assume that their configurations are correctly known. Blessings to all!!
