Why Didn’t I think of This

Hey dude, aren’t you Saul of Tarsus? Yes, I mean no, well I use to be, I now go by the name of Paul the Apostle of grace.
Are you still into that Jehovah religion thing? No, not really, I’m into Jesus now, and man talk about a huge demographic this is, its total virgin territory with so many pagan Gentiles ripe for the picking.
Yeah as a matter of fact this revelation thing that I received from Jesus, I’m now working on condensing this encrypted mystery gospel into a formula based thing called, ‘The Grace Walk’. Wow, that sounds cool, is there money to be made in this stuff?
Loads of it man, hand over fist money, I just have to fine tune this message and set it up whereby those who are ‘saved’ they can read only what I put up on my blog, but for those who will support ‘my ministry’ with a monetary gift, and that will be determined by how much they can get by how much the commit to financially. Yeah I can see the dough flooding in now, easy street here I come.

See the deal is, as long as they don’t know that they have free total access to all that God has for them individually, then I will convince them that their continued growth will be a moot point without hearing my special revelatory insights, but of course this is going to cost them big time.I’m hoping that buying into this set up will provoke those on the fringe of Graceland to see how foolish they are thinking that they can have a vital relationship with God apart from what I know and have to offer them.
Anyway, I need to focus on getting my next blog-podcast up and running, I have laced these with some powerful enticements to cause them to dig in even deeper so that might feel they are the choose few…damn this Jesus message, grace walk thang is so slick.

Has the Mystery Gospel been condensed, reduced into a ‘Grace Walk’ message, no longer needing to rely upon the Father of our spirit to enlighten us? Technology is so cool isn’t it, now we can learn what Paul did, only we can shorten the tedious and painful process by cashing in on those great books etc that are available from those who have decrypted this extremely difficult message and broken it down into laymen terms.

Wow. Good.
Glad Paul wasn't like this.
Too bad some are, today.
Mammon is such the enticer, used by the enemy. It never ceases to seep into every crack.
The thing is, however, we all choose to fall prey to it's lure.
Or not.
Thank goodness there are those who won't give it an inch.
The Gospel does not need to be sold, in any way.

Keep up the excellent posts.

Thanks Amy

Yeah, Rich, you capture some thoughts that have patiently been brewing on my back burner. It's just as easy and deceiving to cash in on this "grace walk" as it is on the "works walk." All the same, it's still one of US at the forefront, instead of Jesus, Papa, or the Spirit.
Those are good words that very cleverly make the point. Thanks!!

free spirit,

Father keeps having to remind of in light of my little parody here, and He is in charge no matter what I do not see or think I see.

Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel,
13so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else,

14and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear.

15Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will;

16the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel;

17the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment.

18What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice

I so want to KNOW Him in the midst of this Disneyland carnival whereby at every corner someone is trying to give me their 'free' gos-pills!
