Passage from “The Last Tempation of Christ”

While I was writing The Camerado Chronicles  in the summer of 2004, I picked up The Last Temptation of Christ at a used book store, not knowing how deeply it would influence the rest of that project, nor the short story that would emerge directly from it. Here is the scene that inspired the writing … Continue reading

Conversation with a Friend

“Why doesn’t God just reveal Himself to us already?! I’m so tired of answering to this faceless, invisible being that gives us no clear instructions.”   I hear you. Alas, there is no mirror large enough To reflect the entire universe at once. Where would we put it?   “Ack! Why must you speak in these … Continue reading

METATHEOLOGY: A World Beyond Belief

“I have learned so much from God that I can no longer call myself a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of itself with me that I can no longer call myself a man, a woman, an angel, or even pure soul. Love has befriended Hafiz … Continue reading

A Prayer for the Sword-bearers (and a Message to the Defended)

I will start with three different viewpoints on the use of force to protect oneself and control others –three dramatically different perspectives that all seem to ring true. ARJUNA: Bhimsa and Drona are noble and ancient, worthy of the deepest reverence.  How can I greet them with arrows, in battle? If I kill them, how can … Continue reading

When I Was Saved

When I was saved, Jesus did not take me in His arms. He trampled me under His feet, a death befitting his greatest enemy.   When I was saved, Christ did not wash me clean with His blood. He smashed every bone of truth in my body– everything hard, rigid and brittle– until I ran … Continue reading

The Man in the Mirror

Why should I be concerned about my own salvation?   This is like a man who spends his life standing before a mirror, anguished, saying, “No, God, show me the real me. You’ve got it all backwards.”   My friend, turn away from the looking glass, and see the true, nameless Self. (I’ll give you a … Continue reading

Modern-day Pharisees

Modern-day scribes and Pharisees read the gospels and cheer– how odd.   Maybe they don’t realize they traded their crosses for robes when they claimed salvation as their exclusive property, when they wrote down their legalistic reasons why, and labeled all who dissent blasphemers.   Someone should warn them before they seize the Second Coming … Continue reading

Be the Manger

The virgin mother and her dutiful husband trudged through the night, following a star.   Poor, unloved by the world, they were led to the lowest place possible to deliver a child. Tradition tells us this was a real building, but no place could be lower than the heart of a man who thinks himself … Continue reading

Play Tag With the World

How many Christians still wield the sword like Peter in the garden of Gethsemane.   Dim is the mind which cannot distinguish the symbol from its source.   Maybe Jesus should come back and say,   “Do not think that I came to bring a sword to the earth I did not come to bring … Continue reading
