There is great irony in the fact that in the age of the influencer and in a global climate of outrage at abuse the only influencer we haven’t listened to, or taken seriously, is the most abused and violated identity of all. The only influencer who actually matters. God. Who better to know what life needs, than God. Or life itself, if you prefer.
Religions weaken and limit God's right to authority and sovereignty over his own life. They have greedily divided God among themselves, guaranteeing he would be kept at arms length from the abusive world we have created. Conditional expression is the way of life that honours God. It honours and acknowledges all God's direct messengers, but honours Jesus as the true living Word of God. the embodiment of what honouring God should look and feel like.
Inside is a series of questions for Catholic educators, priests and bishops designed to put the true nature of their faith to the test. It makes for an intense reflection. But God's life is at stake so it is probably worth it.
In a world that has valued personal and economic profit over keeping the life we belong to sacred, God's own word cannot be given away. Believing in God does not equate to caring for God. In terms of our collective behaviour and actions, God has been treated as nothing. And our actions was all that ever mattered.
