Performing Autopsies on Christ?

Submitted by theshovel

What many Christian leaders have done with the truth of Christ is akin to performing an autopsy. They’ve taken that which is alive and have killed it, laid it out on a slab and cut it open … all in the attempt to figure out what makes it tick. Doing so allows it to be categorized and defined. Is it any wonder we would have to make applications for such teachings? After all, what good would this kind of teaching be without practical steps? If that which we’ve accepted as teaching has no real power in and of itself, perhaps it’s time to check its vital signs. We may be trying to resurrect what God already put to death in his son.

“… laid it out on a slab and cut it open … all in the attempt to figure out what makes it tick…” <theshovel

the typical knee jerk reaction of the nature of man toward that which he does not recognize or understand about … yep, you guessed it … aliens.  lol  truly, alien is what we are in this world.  from and according to their darkened understanding, everything about us is suspect and curious and not to be trusted. 

it is a real sad thing that christians are so misled early-on and deluded into not even knowing who they really are, to the degree that they adapt to a false identity and a misrepresentation of their own true selves in Christ. 

yet the Spirit of GOD is faithful to those who are HIS regardless of how things appear.  thank GOD that our temporary delusions do not change the fact of our true identity.  in the midst of the delusions the facades are shown to be as they truly are, as HE reveals HIMself to us more and more.  :)  sometimes it is quite a bumpy ride!

Dave, I'm with you on that..I mean, if it takes a little brown to give my arms and back a rest from shoveling…I will take it. Merry Christmas.

Hi Jim, I have been through a lot the last few months. I woke up one morning paralyzed on one side of my face and thought I had a stroke. I went to the emergency room and they said I had Bell's palsy. I was treated for lyme disease and shingles. It's been a long recovery. Thank god I am about 95 percent back and have had almost made a full recovery.

 In this world we will have tribulation, but be  happy because Christ has overcome the world.

Sometimes it is hard to be happy.

I totally understand the difficulty in keeping happy. ;)

I have become delusional because of this , instead having life inside of me I feel like I have death inside of me. The people who supposedly believe they are really close to God and can show me the way ,with all the body parts that they have extracted out of the corpse, they have infected me.

They seem to have it all together and are on a higher level because of the piece of paper in a frame on the wall. “If you do  this, you will be closer to God. You also can learn how to dissect Jesus”.

 I am asking God to heal me and get this infection out of me before it kills me.

not to worry … things are not as they appear.  GOD knows the reality of the heart that man only thinks he sees and knows.  the New Creation of GOD in Christ has the heart and mind of Christ and is growing in the very Nature of GOD.  things are not always as they appear outwardly.  the Hope we have inwardly is Christ Himself.  it is a miracle and is not acceptable by that which is of this world and devoid of GOD

higher levels?  GOD HIMself is our level that we have been born into and it is HUGE.  we are free to roam all over HIS level.  none are better or worse in Christ.  :)  those who would make claims to either better or worse, higher or lower do not know the Reality of the New Creation of GOD.  their words/claims are empty and devoid of the Life of GOD

be encouraged in HE WHO has made you New!  :)

Hello Arnold, it’s good to hear from you again.

The infection you refer to may seem as real as real can be, but is only an illusion … a deception. Do not own it, for Christ has already removed it far from you.
