  • DIVINE LOVE: (IT'S PROBABLY NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS) SERIES
     
    • LOVE IS TO A STANDARD
       
      • Is love counterfeitable? Can it assume a false color? Can it be misapplied? If so, is there really such a thing as "unconditional" love?


    • DEFINING LOVE
       
      • A look at divine love's true priorities compared to the love found in theistic humanism, with special exposure of the term "unconditional love."


    • THE PROPHETIC BURDEN FOR RIGHTEOUS LOVE
       
      • Consideration of the prophet's unique role in articulating and bearing reproach for the standard of righteousness to which all divine love is calibrated.


    • THE FRACTIOUS NATURE OF LIGHT
       
      • If, as John says, walking in the light is supposed to produce fellowship one with another, why is there so little fellowship among so many of us seeking to walk in the light? Might this also tell us something different about what it means to "love one another"?


    • DOES THE WORLD KNOW THAT YOU LOVE THE FATHER?
       
      • Has it ever occurred to us that Jesus never declared His love for the world.  If Jesus came to love the world, why did He never directly say so? Perhaps there is a context to divine love we have missed.


    • LOVE DEFINED: ENTRANCE INTO THE DIVINE UNION
       
      • Explore how divine love belongs to an exclusive union between the Father and the Son which we are graciously bidden to enter.


    • THE BOUNDED LOVE OF GOD
       
      • A discussion of the difference between the "exclusionary" and the "extensionary" love of God beyond the Divine Union, with special attention to understanding God's relationship to hate.


    • THE ENMITY OF DIVINE LOVE
       
      • Learn how it is finally impossible to apprehend the love of God without first apprehending the fundamental "animus" that separates us all from Who God IS.
         
         
    • THE SUFFICIENCY OF DIVINE LOVE 

      • The costs of living out of divine love are very high. Where are we to go or what are we to do when the costs of that love are greater than we are able to bear?


    • THE DESTRUCTIVE POWER OF LOVE & THE HARVEST OF ANGER   

      • A reconciliation of the destructive attributes of God within His fundamentally loving nature and that of the wilderness prophet. Answers for the tough questions--How can  a loving God destroy? Why must He destroy? How can Love be angry? What difference is there between the angry warring Jehovah of the Old Testament and the god of the modern jihadist? And how and why must destructive anger be demonstrated in and through the church?


    • THE REDEMPTIVITY OF TRUTH   

      • The concluding view of love as the necessary qualifier to the ministry of truth through its search for redemption in confrontation.
