“You’re living at a time of extremism, a time of revolution, a time when there’s got to be a change. People in power have misused it, and now there has to be a change and a better world has to be built and the only way it’s going to be built is with extreme methods. And I for one will join in with anyone, I don’t care what color you are, as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this earth. Thank you.” Bookmark and Share Bookmark and Share



When I'd read the old testament, it'd be like viewing an ancient relic that had little relevance in the current. I thought of the OT as a narrative of things past, with principles we can relate to our present condition.

Fast forward to years later. This morning I opened to the book of Hosea, yeah, it exists. In checking out the summary statements, it was a call to repentance for a spiritually ADHD Israel. Sound like another people we know? Hosea depicts Israel as a broken people, though deeply and intently loved by God. In comparing Israel to The Church of the west, I see many parallels. God is sending out people to call us to look at Him and let go our debilitating ways.

The more I grow, the more continuity I see with those pages.
