All that speaks to us of God is meant to bring us to talk to God
Exodus 19-21/1Corinthians 1-3
20:19-20 And they said to Moses, “You tell us what God says, and we will listen. But don’t let God speak directly to us. If he does, we will die!” “Don’t be afraid,” Moses said, “for God has come in this way to show you his awesome power. From now on, let your fear of him keep you from sinning!”
3:18-20 Stop fooling yourselves. If you think you are wise by this world’s standards, you will have to become a fool so you can become wise by God’s standards. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say, “God catches those who think they are wise in their own cleverness.” And again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are worthless.”

Can God see?
Does He know?
NT Flash Points
The Law – love
One, not Ten
Replace argument, debates, factions, cliques
With living together, building together, loving one another, becoming one??
Is this a religious fantasy?
Or the gift God has given us?
Of course, the gift of God is something foreign to us, beyond our ability!
Man’s attempts at recreating that gift have and will always implant a time-bomb that will destroy its disciple and their family for generations
Holy Spirit is the gift AND the facilitation for that new creation in you to grow up and take over
