On Fighting Dogma–The church for far too long has thwarted peoples’ gift or view because of fear of whatever, today realize you are not stupid, your idea is not stupid your gift is not stupid


And behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

Matthew 3:17

 Albert Einstein said, “Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Often we are judged in life by others from some invisible standard that says this is normal and we must function in this world according to this standard. Each of us are unique and have a different way we see things and the gift of that view that is bathed in the love of Christ must be given to the world. The church for far too long has thwarted peoples gift/view because of fear of whatever, today realize you are not stupid, your idea is not stupid your gift is not stupid. The way I have always seen things has been a little off according to the church or ministry folks, but I know that I am the beloved of God, this is all I am focused on. God told Jesus in Matthew 3:17, “You are my boy, I love you and I am soooooo pleased with you!”
