What if every one of us is really made in the image of God? What if His DNA is flowing through every person? What if we have never left oneness with our creator? What if the problem of humanity is not that God, because of our sin, is distant from us, but that our sense of shame and focus on our selves has convinced us of this lie (I have to hide; I'm not good enough, not worthy)? What if this perceived distance is what kills us spiritually, unplugging us from the source of life? What if Jesus' message is that of the loving Father who just wants to share everything with us, and not that of the untouchable, highly exalted king, way up there on the throne, somewhere in heaven, wherever that is...? What if Jesus' life-giving spirit is awakening/bringing back to life our spirit, dealing with our shame, and opening our eyes to the truth that we're one with the one who created us to be one with Him (not seperate; not up there and down here; not servant and king; not big God and little human)? What if so many of our 'worship songs' are full with lies about God being distant?
