INTRODUCTION (TO BE READ): SUPPLEMENT: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CONSERVATIVE-REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN: JESUS IS A SMALL-C COMMUNIST

 


INSERT FOR YOUR NAVIGATIONAL CONVENIENCE
Not Part of the Text


This supplement and the main volume (though to a lesser degree), are as journal entries.

The supplement is a collection of commentaries with dispersed sermonizing.

That sermonizing is for the sake of the dignity of humility and not for ostentation. It is to expose misdirection and not to harm. It is to warn to turn away from selfishness, greed, violence, and impure feelings. It is to call to turn to universal unselfishness: Mercy, love, peace, apology, forgiveness, atonement, redemption, and purity, collectively constituting the truth.

There is no arbitrarily enforced systematic approach or synthesis offered or intended. The writing style is free-flowing and what denigrators will dismiss as mere ramblings. However, there is nothing haphazard about it, and the larger pattern is discernable to the patient. "In your patience possess ye your souls." (Luke 21:19).

The reader is asked to suspend usual expectations and is required to structure much of the information within the reader's mind. In other words, we have not done all the work.

The reasons for this is not sloth. Such work lends itself to improving the kind of thinking conjoined with emotions (feelings, sensing) that is required to follow the dictates of the Holy Spirit to do greater righteousness and to, therefore, more avoid temptation to do iniquity. The main volume explains this in greater detail.

Words are only as able as the conceptualization of the reader. We work at opening and narrowing that conceptualization for the sake of our coming to righteousness. We ask you to read this work with that spirit in your heart.

This supplement and the main volume may strike many as too rebuking, too harsh; however, we too have been rebuked, and are rebuked. That's a good thing. There is no harm in it. The harm is self-harm in rejecting correct rebuking.

The huge evils in the world require even larger rebuking but from humility, for all have sinned.
