Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
OMG - did you sense and understand that?!
This is Christ's News Team: Local managers/overseers, reporters/prophets, and editors/elders at God's service. For the God of loving communication has a fierce way of providing it.
No stone/emotion/thought/betrayal left unturned; no inside scoop barred from exposure; and no complacency left unchecked. This is a crackerjack team of publishers of truth.
They are only mystical in the sense of trying to solve, not propagate, the mystery of God. They are only ascetic in the sense of doing without in order to get within. They are only spiritual in the sense of dealing with human-reality fully.
Nothing esoteric about Christ's staff or their practice of keeping true to the factual experience. But can Friends handle the truth as coming from small public-broadcasting agencies? For these people are just like you and me, yet without the ego-driven need for success; just average individuals who add up to a wealth of investigative experience.
They respect "Democracy Now" but call for "Kingdom Now".
So why the resistance of Quaker professors: Not one of which likes reading/hearing about what has already been accomplished by Another, and that is offered free and completely for all that are attuned; not one of which can resist overstating their field's contribution to Quakerism; not one of which can appreciate what comes graciously to the human heart, rather than arduously, if naturally, to the human mind.
Extra, Extra - be all about it! Christ's news is scarcely being covered, because the staff is existentially out to lunch.
