Beware the false prophets
who invite you up onto the tightrope
promising you the net of forgiveness lies beneath you
ready to catch you!
This means they are still inviting you to
the old system!
of trying to earn your salvation
through your own merits
and borrowing the net
you don't make it!
The metaphysical implications are darker
than you may realize!
It means: "You are not good enough for God
as you are
here's a rule book
if you can keep to it or at least try. . .
God will take pity on your wretched soul!"
The 100% grace way means:"God loves you as is. . .
as you were created. . .
Which should make you
wanting to emulate
that great loving being
and pass it on
pass on the unconditional love given to you!
Give the love and acceptance
you have received
Be a joy in the heart of God,
not a sorrow
watching you struggle on the tightrope
with white knuckle grip on the rule book
or love for others.
