Flipped PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Flipped free pdf We all have stories in our heads about God, humanity, life, and the meaning of it all. One of the most common--and misleading--stories is "If I'm faithful in doing "this, "then God promises to do "that."" Jesus didn't believe it and neither should you. God does not insist that you play by the rules before he will respond to you. A careful reading of the Bible will free all of us from trying to make a deal with God, inviting us instead to live in God. How would your life change if you flipped your understanding of God? Doug Pagitt takes a new look at provocative statements made by Jesus, Paul, and the prophets. Jesus turned the tables on religious assumptions every time he began with "You have heard it said, but I say to you..." Paul quoted a pagan poet when he revealed the truth that we live, move, and have our being in God. Come along on a journey of discovery and change, leading to a flip in your view of where God is and where we are in relation to God. Set aside the rules of religion and know the freedom of living in God.
