WE HAVE OUR BEING IN HIM In him we live and move and have our being.

Should we try to make a life out of doing rather than being, we will rob ourselves of life because we live in a construct. We have made for ourselves a cage of belief rather than a life that is in Christ – the kind of life that Paul calls Christ our life and the life in God that Jesus calls the way, the truth and the life by naming Himself as this life - a state of being.

Caged in our Mindset

The Way, the Truth and the Life is Jesus Christ.

Everything is possible in Christ

The non-dualistic life is the life Adam and Eve had before the fall. It’s the life of oneness with God. Oneness is the life that every Believer inherits now when we believe we do. Union with God is the difference between life before the cross and life after the cross. With many people it’s the difference between living in God and living in the law – or living from the fall and living from the resurrection.

Dualism is an orientation that flows from the culture of the knowledge of good and evil: Separation from God.

If our epistemology* is woven from oneness with God we will know the new birth as what it is - Christ as us. If we have captured ourselves in the law and the law is the frame by which we interpret our life in God, the result will be that we will construe spiritual life as religion and ‘doing things’ to undo our separation from God. (The futility of this is that since the cross we are one with God).

Iit's about being

THE. LAW MINDSET

Those who are an embodiment of the law, always end up defining things of the spirit by formulae. In the Spirit, life, righteousness and human graces are simply an expression of you – of yourself in God.

YOUR EPISTEMOLOGY

Your epistemology will define whether for you Godliness is a state of doing or a state of being. What you think knowledge is will determine whether you think you belong to the Body of Christ because you found a ‘proof text’ or if you belong to the Body because you live in oneness instead of the separation that is the law. Thomas Torrance writes, “Epistemologically, the problem to be faced in ancient or modem times can be posed in this way. In the analytic tradition of thought there takes place an abstraction of Jesus Christ from the matrix of natural or inherent relations in which he is found, and then an abstraction of the external appearance of Christ from the objective frame of event and significance with which he is bound up in the Gospel". (The Mediation of Christ)

* What knowledge is, how we know and how we acquire knowledge.
