CHAPTER 2 FORGIVENESS FROM THE CROSS AND TEACHING IN PARABLES: SUPPLEMENT: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CONSERVATIVE-REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN: JESUS IS A SMALL-C COMMUNIST

Saturday, July 01, 2006:

"Forgive them for they know not what they do."

Teach them what they do. He taught them in parables. Decipher the parables. Clear up the mystery. Solve the problem. Untangle the wrong from the right. Translate the language of the revelation into plain language. Convert the people. Bring them together as changing and changed people, adapting and adapted to the new purpose and as the instruments of the solution. Divert the flow. Alter the course. Turn around the money into the cause of Christ. Free the land of greed. This is radical change. This is the call of real evangelism. This is transformation. This is a new substance of one. The Holy Spirit turns us to change us to become one with God. This is potentiation. Just as the tiny mustard seed becomes a great tree, so to may we germinate from our newly reborn, inborn guardian spirit. This is genius. This is divinity. This is genuine. This is the real nature. This is the image of God, our progenitor. This is how we begin to appear and to take shape. We are as developing embryos and the world is pregnant.

The language of the revelation is metaphor and simile. Meta here means transcended, a higher state of being. The Greek root of the word that is "pherein" here means bring forth, just as being fertile and carrying a child in the womb to birth and then to grow.

This is not mere approximation. The purpose is exacting. It is the exact means to perfection. The means are perfect to that end. The aim is right on. It is the process of becoming a species absent malevolence, malfeasance, misappropriation, and all the rest of evil.
