Lectures Versus Conversations

To begin with, it’s difficult to take up an offering for a conversation. But that’s not so bad, because lectures and lecturers don’t really lend themselves to the pursuit of truth. Truth is best found in Christ centered conversation, not man centered lectures, because Christ is the TRUTH!

Truth is a threat to lecturers because it tends to mess up their agenda. Once we come to conclusions, the pursuit of TRUTH comes to a grinding halt. At that point we just have a battle of agendas. Conclusions are dead-end streets where the pursuit of Truth is concerned. Eternity is the goal of Truth, and TRUTH is the object of eternity.

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, (conversation) we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:14-16 NIV

The first thing we need for such a conversation is:

Love!

P.S. For that we need a revelation of the Cross!

    OUR LORD JESUS said “I AM THE TRUTH, THE WAY, AND THE LIFE.” TRUTH that is absolute always resonates sweetly for GODS children in their spirit. another voice they will not follow.

    yes! IT is the music of the heavenly SPIRIT that shapes our every movement here as the LORD JESUS is worshiped willingly by HIS children.

    This is a tremendous statement: “For that we need a revelation of the Cross!” Why is a revealing of the cross of Christ nessarary for a conversation? First, we must be dead to our agenda in order to have a listening ear, which is half of a conversation. If we cannot hear, then we are merely talking to ourself, and this can never be described as a conversation. Second, love is the building block to the true interaction of Christ’s expression, the Word in conversation. This love is revealed ultimately and unmistakablely in the cross of Christ. This is the love who speaks to enemies, penetrating the hearts of stone and birthing in those hearts Life Himself.
