Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
Walking the streets of Bandon I am alive in the inshining of Presence. The veil of outward forms (the things that mediate) are lifted and I look upon the unveiled face of Christ; no longer through outward layers placed before me by others. The conservative's static tradition and the liberal's shifting ideological, political, and intellectual, forms no longer blanket Presence. Through spiritual eyes, I gaze full upon the open face. Moment by moment I am renewed in the glory of the eternal visage and changed so that I am of the same image through the grace of inshining in all circumstances and all places. Oh, what thanksgiving for such freedom in the unveiled face; through direct faith in and experience of the life itself. Not in the outward theologies, practices, politics,policies, ideologies, and institutions erected by the mind of people mediating and covering the unmediated experience itself. (2 Cor. 3:14-18)
This is true peace, life, and religion, glory in the unveiled open face in all things. Seeing through spiritual eyes as the old self gives way to the inner self; gazing directly upon the visage of Christ's presence and thereby ever renewed and rejuvenated through the inshining of Presence. (2 Cor. 4: 16)
It is such grace to eat directly of the bread of Presence.
