Our Sermon Section
By Frank and Mary Hoffman - 24 Jun 2012
In Reference to: 24 June 2012 - Belief is Passive - Faith is Active
Your first paragraph speaks to the main problem of this corrupt world. Unless we can learn to love in this perfect way, we can never completely live in the way that Jesus tells us to live.
We have always referred our works/faith relationship as being accomplished through the power/unction of the Holy Spirit.
We also don’t believe that we can separate ethics from God’s perfect love, for when we do, ethics become clouded with evil things/ways, such as in the case of the standard practice clause in animal agriculture.
This is why we have worked ecumenically and interreligiously to find common ground for ending the suffering and corruption in the world.
So, this leads us to ask, how do we expand what we are doing?
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
