Right questions and right truths a formula?

Are even asking the right questions and or considering the right truths somewhat of a formula? anonymous

Sure. The Positional Truth concept hinges upon such a view of rightness so that one's so-called spiritual growth is said to be linked to the purity factor of the particular truth. But our life is all about being alive, not about being right. Sure, we've been made right in Christ, but this rightness doesn't translate into correctness. The religions of Christianity are often built upon making sure to line up with God's truth (aka, Biblical truth). There is also a vast difference between trying to ask the right questions versus paying attention to the questions that are truly coming out of your heart. Of course, if you want to call the discovery of such real questions as being the "right" questions I won't get my panties in a bunch over it. :) Despite either our screwed up truth or our right truth we have been made alive in Christ. We live on account of HIM, not on account of our correct understanding!

Random Shovelquote: Realize the freedom (view all shovelquotes)

How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
