U.S. to Allow Seismic Airgun Testing for Offshore Drilling Exploration, Will Threaten Marine Life

The gospels, the epistles, are majestic revelations of who God is and the eternal purpose. The cross was the full summary of the Abba-revealing ministry of Jesus, and is the central means by which Christ casts down the powers exalted against love, frees the oppressed, identifies himself with human suffering, heals and transforms our natures, reveals forgiveness by purifying our conscience, and reconciles us to God and each other by revealing the non-retributive, non-violent, alluring, transforming, self-giving reality of who the Father is. This world-transforming power is realized by us going forth and exhibiting the same cross-like love and revealing God as the Lamb who was slain. This is how the kingdom comes. The resurrection was the vindication and confirmation of all of this, and the outrageous good news that the new creation, the restoration of all things, has indeed begun and its triumph was irreversible. The message is “Change your way of thinking and turn towards the Father, for we no longer have to be lost, Abba has been revealed in the Son, death is no longer the final word, and his kingdom that makes all things new is approaching!”
