Welcome to “Pursuing Biblical God,” a conversation about spirituality from a biblical perspective. Here’s some thoughts to get our party started:
- I’m spiritual, but not religious.That’s a trendy thing to say, but I mean it. The Pharisees were very religious; I am not.
- All things are spiritual.I reject the modern separation of reality into spiritual and secular realms.
- Not all things that are spiritual are good. At best, some spiritual ideas serve as distraction; at worse, destruction.
- I don’t have all the answers; I have mostly questions.I shun formal theology because it’s boring and impractical. I embrace paradox—and the Bible is full of wonderful, delightful paradoxes.
- I avoid the of label Christian; I am a follower of Jesus. Nothing else matters.
What makes me qualified to embark upon such a grandiose endeavor? Only that I am on a journey in pursuit of the God who is revealed in the Bible, the God who created time and space, the God who yearns to be in relationship with me—and I with him. I’m in love with creator of the universe and savior of the world and invite that you join me on this greatest of life’s adventures.
