If Christ is not in the Church, how does it differ from " the world " ? It will still assimilate its members, but it will not make them persons bearing the family likeness of the first-born son of God. Wherever the Church has lost the saving influence of Christ, it has lost its saltness and is a tasteless historical survival. Therewith all theological doctrines about it become untrue. Antiquity and continuity are no substitute for the vitality of the Christ-spirit. Age, instead of being a presumption in fa... 

"The radical Christian Right calls for exclusion, cruelty and intolerance in the name of God. Its members do not commit evil for evil's sake. They commit evil to make a better world.

I have seen that it is not man who is impotent in the struggle against evil. but the power of evil that is impotent in the struggle against man. The powerlessness of kindness, of senseless kindness,.... 206 AMERICAN FASCISTS is the secret of its immortality. It can never be conquered. The more stupid. the more senseless, the more helpless it may seem. the vaster it is. Evil is impotent before it. The prophets, religious teachers. reformers, social and political leaders are impotent before it. This dumb. blind love is man's meaning.

The movement offers, in return, the absurd but seduc~ tive promise that those who are right with God will rise to become spiritual and material oligarchs. They will become the new class. Those who are not right with God, be they poor or Muslim or un~ saved, deserve what they get. In the rational world none of this makes sense. But believers have been removed from a rea1ity~based world. They believe that through Jesus all is possible. It has become a Christian duty to embrace the exploitation of others, to build a Christian America where freedom means the freedom of the powerful to dominate the weak. Since believers see themselves as becoming empowered through faith, the gross injustices and re~ pression that could well boomera

Did only I not understand this? The Republicans are waging a Christian holy war, holy Crusade, against the rest of us. Think about it.


Radical evil of the right finds no threat from the tepid good of the left. Sanders represents the only slim threat.

Those in the movement speak of "liberty," but they do not speak about the traditional concepts of American liberty-the liberty to express divergent opinions, to respect other ways of believing and being, the liberty of individuals to seek and pursue their own goals and fonns of happiness. When used by the Christian Right, the term "liberty" means the liberty that comes with accepting a very narrowly conceived Christ and the binary world· view that acceptance promotes.

Jesus gospel was buried dead within years 2000 years ago. Rauschenbusch brought it to us again and within decades it too was buried. But here it is.



Brief update regarding mom and the boys.


She and I have been engaged in major work every day. She while totally consumed by earning an income and taking care of her boys. While remaining substantially unhealthy unable to find an affordable medical regimen so far. Can we get Beyond this? Time will tell.

Last you heard from James on this subject Mom and he had been conducting a flurry of documenting the situation so that others could become engaged which so far has not materialized much. Sadly. 

But also, James was pushing for too fast an implementation of detailed work. The first stage is to see if we can get Mom back up toward full function with a health regimen. And if it is possible it may take some weeks.

Only then should any of us look for substantial detailed work to take place.

I was sent to make you one human family, cured of vile selfishness. You have chosen to worship Mammon. Now meet your maker. Jesus

You have to be prepared to die before you can begin to live.. Fred Shuttlesworth.



My place last night. And they would be glad to have me stay for a while.


In this upscale town on the bay She commented to me as I drove by a week ago. And we had a nice brief chat. Towards the end she pointed to her house across the road. , we have a guest Cottage come stay in it. Turns out, She's slightly crazy that way. . The soul in us is crazy.
Yesterday afternoon I arrived for the night. She and her husband and I, well, I found it a absolutely wonderful exhilarating evening over a pasta dinner.
Stay longer. They reiterated it.
I recounted how I finally understand why Mother Teresa would never eat. Any place but at one of her orders. Even if she had been talking at a banquet, for example.
It is a largely fun, stimulating struggle, to keep the soul in charge. But the head and the flesh are relentless. Given the slightest opening, the slightest encouragement, they begin stealing attention. And I do not prefer it when they have attention.

As I departed our dinner, she said, now I hope you don't do a Mother Teresa and sleep on the floor. I had already mention that was likely. It is so odd, but the thought of spoiling all those sheets and creating all that work. Is so distasteful to me. It was a very pleasant vacation on the floor to have plenty of room to sprawl. , a solid floor, a safe quiet space, in such a beautiful area. With such nice friends..

Seriously, what more could Trump and his mob do to wake up Americans and the world? You cannot awaken the Dead.


REVEALED HERE. HEAR ME. Jesus, the most important figure in human history, Thousands and thousands of research hours, and finally emerges in this book. Theology for the Social Gospel, Walter rauschenbusch.



I cannot overstate what a revolution, Revelation, is This book. not possible.

Inarguably most consequential figure in human history, be he fact as is nearly certain, or fiction.

Lifelong the central figure in James life. The Rosetta Stone that could only be seen vaguely and distorted through the church and Christianity. Some have brought shame is much closer, Leo Tolstoy, in particular. As he did with Gandhi and Martin Luther King jr.

But after all that This book is an utter revelation. And it is this author, Walter rauschenbusch, That was the spark that ignited Martin Luther King jr. That certainly says something, correct?

Rauschenbusch, theology, the fall.

"It is important to realize that the story of the fall is incomparably more fundamental in later theology than it was in biblical thought. The conspicuous place given to Genesis in the arrangement of the Hebrew canon, itself concentrated the attention of later times on it. The story now embodied in Genesis iii was part of the Jahvist narrative, a document of Ephraimitic origin dating back to the ninth century B.C. The original purpose of the story was not to explain the origin of sin, but the origin of 40 A THEOLOGY FOR THE SOCIAL GOSPEL death and evil. There are scarcely any allusions to the story in the Old Testament. The prophets were deeply conscious of the sins of men, but they did not base their teachings on the doctrine of the fall. Not till we reach post-biblical Jewish theology is there any general interest in the story of Adam's fall. Even then the story of the fall of the angels in Genesis vi attracted more interest. In the synoptic sayings of Jesus there is not even a reference to the fall of Adam. In the fourth gospel there is one allusion, (John viii, 44). Jesus, of course, had the clearest consciousness of the chasm between the will of God and the actual condition of mankind. The universality of sin was a matter of course with him ; it was presupposed in all his teaching. But he was concerned only with those sources of sin which he saw in active work about him: first, the evil heart of man from which all evil words and actions proceed ; second, the social stumbling blocks of temptation which make the weak to fall ;.... 

Social Gospel, rauschenbusch, on the Supreme Joy.

"Our duty to the Kingdom of God [Creating it on Earth] is on a higher level than all other duties. To aid it is the supreme joy. To have failed it by our weakness, to have hampered it by our ignorance, to have resisted its prophets, to have contradicted its truths, to have denied it in time of danger, to have betrayed it for thirty pieces of silver, — this is the most poignant con- sciousness of sin. The social gospel opens our eyes to the ways in which religious men do all these things. It plunges us in a new baptism of repentance..... 

I expect that soon I will be blocking all who are not my friends in deed and or withdrawing from Facebook entirely. Wakeup time .

If you consider yourself a friend, of James, And you respect him, then you need to consider this....


Note: James intention regarding all this is to help a great Soul get their head above water and likely to keep it above. That way. It is not an attempt to provide material Nirvana.

James finds it very difficult to understand himself. Let alone anyone else. And it is probably the same with you, No?

It is at crisis points that we have the chance to learn such things more deeply.

James, and any that think they are his friend, are at such a crisis point. Crisis meaning, opportunity on a dangerous wind.

James life, as it should be with all of us, is devoted to the unleashing of the human soul, the mammalian brain, the seat of all goodness in we the most powerful creatures in the universe that we know of, and the source of all joy.

He has found the Pearl worth any price personally, a soul of great goodness that is going to be snuffed out if help does not arrive. And he has devoted much of his time, near all of it in recent weeks, to trying to determine if this Soul can be saved.

This Soul being an absolutely heroic, brilliant, strong, good... Tenacious parent with two special-needs sons that is in the final stages of drowning, Where James would have drowned long long ago.

James sees tremendous hope but not unless he really does have friends in More Than Words, in deed that will give some time and possibly Financial Resources, For a detailed quantified plan that is being developed.
In very high level overview. It is shaping up something like this.

It is game time. You need to search your soul. Do you have a lot of respect and confidence for James? Are you his friend? Indeed? If there is anyone for whom the answer is yes, yes, and yes, Then you need to contact James on messenger or email. Tell him, James, when you have the plans, James, I want to see it. At that point, James, I will decide if there is anything else that I can do. Email. Start underscore loving at yahoo.com.

PS. If James and this heroic parent finalize a plan in which James has some confidence He will be investing everything he has in time and treasure up to and even including the liquidation of his current mission, If that is needed, as it is likely to be if no other help arrives.
