Advent Grace


Advent is the time of the Church year when we remember Jesus coming as an infant in Bethlehem’s manger, a feeding trough, to feed the world with God’s love for all. Advent is also the time we look forward to Jesus coming again as the King of kings and Lord of lords; bringing the fullness of God’s Kingdom of Love, for all. Many people believe when Jesus comes again, there will be hell to pay; saying things like, “You better be ready, or else!” If you have that view, I welcome your thoughts of why, and, the opportunity for me to offer a different view; one of God’s complete love, for all, when He comes at His final Advent. Please leave your comment to help us begin this conversation.


The God of the Old Testament vs the God of the Old Testament.


Is the God of the Old Testament ‘different’ than the God of the New Testament?

 That is a good question. Many people view, believe, the God of the Old Testament is wrathful, vengeful, fearful, etc.; and believe the God of the New Testament is more loving, forgiving, accepting, and welcoming. I believe there is no difference. I view God as the same God of love, for all, throughout the Bible. To show that different view of God, please let me know which stories of the Old Testament you believe depicts God as fearful, wrathful, etc. In turn, I will offer a different viewpoint.
