Understanding the Basics...Part 14

Things no longer taught in our Churches and Synagogues....

~written from the common sense perspective of The Winds of the Soul~

by Dr. Gregory C.D. Young, Ph.D./D.Phil.(Oxon.)

to the book

What immediately comes to mind as to why we seem so slack, is that repentance is initially very uncomfortable and unattractive to us as a whole, especially for those of us that have had little experience with hardship, loss, and the trials of life.

It's likely to be depressing when we begin to add-up all the missing parts of today's offering of Judeo-Christianity.  As we have seen in this series, there's much that has been taken away from us, subtly dismissed and misunderstood, making the immediacy of the Gospel become foreign and beyond our reach of understanding, something promised but rarely experienced.

On the weekly broadcasts of the radio show "Winds of the Soul" now listened to worldwide on KAIJ shortwave (and simulcast on www.kaij.us), I've been speaking a lot about the path of repentance, and how few of us really understand it.  Moreover, as a central theme of the Gospel, it's worrisome that so few Judeo-Christians are even bothered in obtaining an understanding and practice of what Jesus Christ has commanded.

What immediately comes to mind as to why we seem so slack, is that repentance is initially very uncomfortable and unattractive to us as a whole, especially for those of us that have had little experience with hardship, loss, and the trials of life.  We are, after all, a society which is becoming more and more of one that "just wants to have fun," demanding immediate satisfaction, while being quick to denounce any form of realty testing that would interfere with our desires for pleasure. 

Seen from this perspective, "repentance" is just too immediate and intrusive, requesting us to take the uncomfortable road of examining and admitting our mistakes, and changing our ways.  We just can't be bothered.

Taking their queue from all of this, many churches today have created the "big-tent-bandwagon" of instant repentance, offering "quick-fix" scenarios of repentance-made-easy-alter-calls, wherein a few tears and a moment's softening of heart, in an atmosphere made to dramatically bring attention to one's personal exposé at times revved up by manipulating self-effacing masochistic appeal, is all one needs to guarantee one's own own salvation... or at least that's what they're currently being sold.

For many, too, it seems that when critical confrontation is ever attempted, no matter how constructive, it's immediately frowned upon and quickly labeled as being too negative, too judgmental, too confrontive, upsetting the peace in their personal lives.  Unfortunately, these are unwise stewards.  These experience humiliation if confronted and criticized, but because of their pride, never know the alchemic sweetness nor strength of humility.

It's much easier to put it all off for tomorrow, or even fantasize that we don't really need to repent, or that we can do it quickly without much study or contemplation, it being something that other "bad" people need to do, but surely not ourselves who are professing Christians. 

So we give ourselves a pass, and learn to associate with those that are of our ken and persuasion, being most satisfied of who we are and what we've become in this world, believing further that God is surely most pleased with everything that we've done, and prayfully grateful for our conclusion.

But such nuances have always been self-delusional, not to mention pretentious..., a sure abhorrence to God.  Buy yourself a "pardon" is now akin to the ancient practice of purchasing Catholic plenary indulgences, whereby sins are supposedly remitted after monies are paid.

Accordingly, we don't talk much about our faults today, not constructively anyway.  Speaking about our sins is never welcomed.  The social taboo starts within our churches, which, though professing forgiveness, are the first to socially ostracize those willing to confess their sins openly, believing that somehow innocent ears will then be infected by such admissions from those fallen from grace (did I miss something----aren't we all "fallen?"), as if confession would thereafter encourage and legitimize the sin.  What nonsense is that?   

For many, too, it seems that when critical confrontation is ever attempted, no matter how constructive, it's immediately frowned upon and quickly labeled as being too negative, too judgmental, too confrontive, upsetting the peace in their personal lives.  Unfortunately, these are unwise stewards.  These experience humiliation if confronted and criticized, but because of their pride, never know the alchemic sweetness nor strength of humility.

Like those leftist environmentalist who deceptively demand that forests should not be managed (i.e., clearing of biomass and underbrush via thinning, controlled burnings, etc.) which misdirection subsequently leads to uncontrolled super-fires that needlessly destroy forests, wildlife and homes, those too who refuse to address the underbrush in their own lives, or in the lives of others, become a hazard and a danger to be around as well. 

If we don't take the responsibility to clear our own underbrush (i.e., the mistakes and sins of our lives), we just add to the problem, and encourage others to do the same, excusing our sins through the mistaken cover of "generosity" and for the sake of "peace." 

No matter how much we wish, erroneously believing that this is what the Lord has commanded will only prove to our own undoing. The Lord has come to deliver us from our sins, not to offer forgiveness while we stubbornly protect our sins from being exposed.  But to this specific form of blindness the Lord has already warned us:

Luke 12:49-51   49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

Matthew 10:34-40   34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. 40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

 This is what most of us want to turn away from.  This is what is so immediately unbearable.  The discomfort of seeing our sins as they really are is as when we are suddenly exposed to the Light of Day after being in a closed darkened room.  The Light, and its intensity, hurts our eyes, and it takes some adjustment to get used to it.

Here, stated for all to see, is the fact that His Light is given to not only reveal our sins to His Judgment, but to deliver us from those sins altogether, separating us from them and their roots.  And that act of separation and disengagement, though ending in joy, will likely begin in division.  It won't be initially peaceful nor particularly comfortable, the Lord warns, as the discovery and purging of sin will be upsetting and painful.  And therein our mettle is to be tried----trying us as to whom and what we love more. 

But there are many of us who unwittingly, and for the sake of "maintaining the peace," do not want such an intrusion in our lives.  We wish to believe that there's another way, something not as disrupting or poignantly harsh, something more measured and kind we plead, even though it is we ourselves that have called for the kind of lesson we are receiving.

I think we all can understand this to some degree.  In our ignorance of His Ways, we wish for things that are easier and less challenging, for sure.  Indeed, it's difficult for any of us at all times to see the Hand of a Loving Father in the midst of our troubles, and refuse to see that at times a Father must be strict and unbending for the welfare of His child.  Certain lessons must be learned in certain ways.  Anything less, and we're just getting in the way of His Instruction, or prolonging the pain within our lives and others by attempting to attenuate His Refining Fires.

Unfortunately though, there are some that refuse the Lord's lessons, even going so far as to naively maintain that all forms of confrontation and exposure are evil or contentious, and cannot (or will not) abide a conversation about the matter.  So defensive, it often takes an intervention of some severity to finally, if ever, get through to them. 

These fail to see that such a stiff-necked posture then places them alongside the paths of darkness, not Light, being summarily and unwittingly in agreement with Satan, who seeks to keep their sins hidden or so redefined as to become invisible within their lives, rather than become separated from them respectfully.  These who refuse to let their lives be so challenged, serve their own arrogance above the Light, mistakenly refuting the call of His Light within them, and only end in securing the fetters of Hell around their own feet.  

And to make that understanding most salient to our hearts, the Lord states that His Light at these specific moments of our life (i.e., when a sin is being exposed), will not be something that we experience peacefully, but rather painfully.  Indeed, the exposure will wrench our gut, as He, our Savior, is at war with our sins..., and temporarily with us if we try to maintain them or excuse them to any degree within our lives. 

This is what most of us want to turn away from.  This is what is so immediately unbearable.  The discomfort of seeing our sins as they really are is as when we are suddenly exposed to the Light of Day after being in a closed darkened room.  The Light, and its intensity, hurts our eyes, and it takes some adjustment to get used to it.

Similarly, when the reality of our sins become exposed, we feel the pain and shock of the Light, wanting to hide from the insult or exposure.  Our pride immediately rises, on queue as it were, to protest and excuse our behavior or misconduct.

Perhaps for this very reason, the idea of "repentance" has been confused with "punishment" for so many, those childishly holding that it is unfair that consequences are inseparably connected with their causes, and moreover that it is particular unfair that their choices alone should rigidly determined which results will be reaped, being unable to rearrange these determinations to otherwise suit their mistaken expectations. 

 

 

Our next reaction is to believe that we're being wrongfully attacked and to defend ourselves at all costs.  Of course, this is not the case at all.  No one is trying to hurt us.  Rather, it is an abrupt discovery as to which side of the line between Good and evil we've lately been drifting, as well as being given a "wake-up call" that our choices in life each carry with it irrevocable consequences based upon those choices, consequences that are not re-definable or interchangeable, no matter how much we would wish it otherwise. 

Perhaps for this very reason, the idea of "repentance" has been confused with "punishment" for so many, those childishly holding that it is unfair that consequences are inseparably connected with their causes, and moreover that it is particular unfair that their choices alone should rigidly determined which results will be reaped, being unable to rearrange these determinations to otherwise suit their mistaken expectations. 

Perhaps then it's not a surprise that today, the righteousness of repentance and the prospect for change that it offers, has been supplanted by the liberal indulgences of the "thumb-sucking self-esteem club," where true repentance has since been demoted as being unfashionable, unnecessary, unneedful, obsolete..., even passé.

Making matters insanely worse, such self-absorbed madness is now being predominantly sown as the primary learning strategy in public grade-schools across the U.S., and becoming fully ripened and harvested as the guiding life-principle used from Hollywood to the U.S. Congress, wherein honest feedback always takes a backseat to the habitually chronic and inane preening of one's ego.  To no ones surprise, then, repentance is not a popular agenda. 

Sadly, the qualities and reality skills of sober self-observation and self-questioning, of the kind of self-reflection wherein our "selves" become objectively scrutinized and tested have been tossed aside. Tossed aside for the ease of letting everything slip, remaining in denial of our true duties and responsibilities, learning to be accountable for nothing. 

To be fair, I think everyone wants a quick way of doing things, especially when those things may involve pain and sorrow, such as repenting from our sins.  But today, the proffered religiously correct process of repentance has become so groomed and automated, so dumbed-downed, feckless, sycophantic, and phony, that you wonder how it is that some people can actually believe it's working. 

Moreover, most of us tend to be so prideful that when we repent (if ever), we do so at such a speed that we miss the major lessons on the way.  We "repent" just to get it off our plates, so to speak, quickly trying to put our "disgrace" behind us.  We're willing to experience only the slightest veneer of pain and sorrow before we conclude that we paid our dues, and it's time to move on....

And from this, and to our families detriment, our children then learn that they don't need to go any deeper as well.  Any wonder why our culture today is so averse to admitting wrong?  Again, we take our queue from our churches, which instead of protecting the decay of national morality, have become bastions of political correctness and excuse, rarely talking about repentance and the depth of the process it involves.

Except for a superficial analysis, we are not generally willing to spend the time and learn as to why we sinned in the first place, or see how our sins not only affected ourselves, but also others.  We don't stay around long enough to examine the ripples on the pond and all the Lord would have us know about the harmful events that wrongfully sprung from our misbegotten actions.  Ours is a flirtation with repentance, and nothing more..... 

And from this, and to our families' detriment, our children then learn that they don't need to go any deeper as well.  Any wonder why our culture today is so averse to admitting wrong?  Again, we take our queue from our churches, which instead of protecting the decay of national morality, have become bastions of political correctness and excuse, rarely talking about repentance and the depth of the process it involves. 

We are all in denial and refuse to do anything about it.  Being "wrong" or "shady" is now considered fashionable and cool, especially if you can get away with it.  Hollywood thrives on our acceptance of same. 

In the least, quick-fix-repentance is a willful fantasy of self-indulgence without accountability.  At the worst, it is a cruel and failed promise of a shortcut to salvation, which simply leads one to hell.

If we're honest, most of us still see the process of repentance as simply the burden of admitting that we are wrong, subsequently being labeled as "stained," ignominious and despicable, in part because of perhaps having witnessed the social ostracism and snubbing that occurs by so-called CINO's (Christian In Name Only) when others happen to be honest enough to profess their sins.  Given such real and ongoing examples of rejection in our churches, is it any wonder that we are not gladly entering the path to repentance or readily disposed to confess our sins openly?

In reality, none of us ever learns how the stain of our sins is to be removed by Christ.  The promise is there and remains true to the Lord's Word, but few of us have ever experienced the cleansing and renewal that Christ offers. 

 

Contrary to the popular view, true repentance is anything but the superficial quick-fix that so many desire.  Instead, it is childlike, and therefore a deeply and wholly honest event, involved with coming to the knowledge of the Truth.

Further insight reveals something rarely ever taught in our churches about repentance, namely, the unsung triumph of the Lord being then enabled to teach us of how wrong and ugly sin is in the process, providing us Heavenly insight and wisdom as why sin is to be avoided and never desired. 

Repentance is meant to yield the fruit of a higher understanding of what we did and why we did it, yielding a gratefulness that His Grace within us is sufficient to not only forgive us of our sins, but teach us how to overcome the temptation of sin for evermore.  It not only involves the awareness of having sinned, but almost as important, acknowledging the wrongness of sin and all its treacherous tentacles that have latched onto us in the process.

Contrary to its critics, repentance is a real work.... A work of contrition and sorrow-finding that's lowly and humbling, to be sure.... an initially disquieting and disturbing work of the soul that is lonely, though it promises the comforting company of Heaven.  It is a work where each of us are charged with the irrevocable responsibility of being self-accountable, the inseparable "other side of freedom" that few liberals and/or progressives wish to explore.   

This is something that is generally far too uncomfortably invasive for most of us adults today..., yet again why the Lord has stated that we must again become as a little child believing in Him..., knowing that as adults, we were less likely disposed to take the real and fulfilling journey of repentance.

Such a renewal begins in approaching His Spirit so that He may teach us to abhor the sins we have committed, and witnessing thereafter, through His Revelation that takes place in us, that we no longer want or desire anything that has to do with the sins of our past.  This is not magic, though it seems so at first.... It's Spiritual. 

It's as if the Lord is saying to us, 'All right then, since you have sinned, it will now be necessary to teach and educate you as to why such a sin has fooled you into believing that it was desirable in the first place.' 

This is the opportunity to learn how deceived we really were, and how the deception actually took place, showing us the means whereby Satan works within us when we are least aware.  Without this exercise (and its a painful exercise to go through indeed) we are never assured that our old sins won't quickly return as tomorrow's ongoing foibles.  But through this exercise, we are pried free from the tentacles of sin, like an ugly wart finally being removed from our person.  And thereafter, now free, the sin can be rightly condemned and thrown away..., but we are saved, no longer to be defined or associated with the sin itself.

Contrary to its critics, repentance is a real work.... A work of contrition and sorrow-finding that's lowly and humbling, to be sure.... an initially disquieting and disturbing work of the soul that is lonely, though it promises the comforting company of Heaven.  It is a work where each of us are charged with the irrevocable responsibility of being self-accountable, the inseparable "other side of freedom" that few liberals and/or progressives wish to explore.   

Jesus Christ truly wanted us to be so self-involved in our daily walk with Him, and not so self-absorbed as to dismiss the need for critical correction and constructive self-discipline.  He wanted us to daily examine ourselves reflectively to see if we were still on His Path, to be meek and lowly in heart, to prove our "selves" continually so as to not be misled or pridefully overcome; remembering that He came to save us from our sins, not save us in them.

  

2 Corinthians 13:5 5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

 

Such an adventure---and truly it is when we begin again to gather the children we used to be back within us so that His Spirit originally endowed to those parts of us when we were children may be perfectly restored to our awareness with fidelity---is life changing.

This is a critical point, yet another crucial connection in the Gospel that has become lost and neglected by the church today.  Wanting to be "Good" is the power endowed within us which sustains us through the process of repentance itself.  It is not enough to simply get in line so as to go through the motions of repentance in rote like fashion thinking that something positive will occur at the other end.  Without this foundation, repentance is impossible. 

And if we don't do this, if we don't willingly accept this responsibility, we are, according to the Apostle Paul, "reprobates...." wretched, ungrateful and unprincipled people who know not their Creator.

More importantly, according to the Gospel, the role and activity of repentance, as defined by the Lord, must be invited.  It cannot be forced upon the human mind.  It cannot have any sway within a person who is coerced or manipulated to repent by any degree or by any manner. 

Although many in the church use Hell-fire and damnation as a threat meant (perhaps) to first place us into a position (read: pushed) in which we are to consider our own personal standing..., in the end, and in order to be truly effective, repentance cannot be compelled, nor forced by any means upon another.  It can only be "prescribed," as encouraged by the great Physician's Hand. Whether we ultimately take His Advice, is really up to us.

Accordingly, repentance must be sincere, honest and contrite, and above all, must be personally and deeply desired by us, just as we would in wanting peace and prosperity to bless our lives.  Without us inviting the process.... it just won't begin in His Name nor end in our being forgiven.  Point aside, that is what I believe "hell" is for.... where the opportunity of remission of sins through the blood of the Lamb is summarily rejected, leaving one with the ghastly task of paying for their own sins by themselves.

In fact, by definition, repentance involves the unique expression of our free agency.  It is our daring and courageous choice of wanting to be better than we are----wanting to be "Good" after the way of the Father and the Son----that leads us to take upon ourselves the task of Spirit-guided soul-searching introspection and heartfelt self-examination and contemplation. 

Personal repentance, therefore, must spring from and be specifically directed by this underlying pervasive motivation, namely, to be "Good."  It's not enough to simply say "I'm sorry, and I don't want to do bad," but must be furthered by a heartfelt and sincere desire of wanting to do better, replacing the "bad" with something "Good," and doing everything in our own power to do so, which means actively pursuing the goal with our whole heart, mind and strength.

This is a critical point, yet another crucial connection in the Gospel that has become lost and neglected by the church today.  Wanting to be "Good" is the power endowed within us which sustains us through the process of repentance itself.  It is not enough to simply get in line so as to go through the motions of repentance in rote like fashion thinking that something positive will occur at the other end.  Without this foundation, repentance is impossible. 

An example at this point may help us visualize the importance of this idea.  In team sports, we often have coaches to help guide our play, correct our errors and help us play better.  Yet without a love for the sport, the coaches' criticisms and drive for us to do better, along with all the additional exercise needed to improve our play, cannot be sustained for our betterment.  We'll quit before the task is completed, generally finding it too hard for us, or at least not worth all the extra effort and pain.... and many do just that... quit before the goal has been reached.  Most simply, we cannot sustain our activities solely on the desire of another, or without finding our own desire and inner strength to succeed.

But with a heartfelt desire born from within our own "being" to become good at a sport, to play better, and the personal commitment to correct our actions through continuous practice in order to reach that goal..., then all the work entailed, including the coaches perfecting direction and hard criticism, is seen proactively and helpful in getting us to our goal.

Similarly, without such a personal reason for repentance, we'll never survive the "cut," and never finish the journey.  Wanting to be "Good," as Jesus and His Father is "Good," must be the fundamental reason for Heaven-directed change; it must be the foundation of our repentance.  It is the strength which allows the Lord and our Saving Alchemist to change the possible souring weakness of humiliation into the sweet strength of humility within us.

In this regard, true repentance is something that is wonderfully and fantastically more than the simple admission of sin and wrong-doing.  Indeed, more than anything else, it is a work of Heavenly change.

By the Grace of His Spirit (and the contest that is then allowed), we are invited to not only see the error of our ways, but see why the beauty of Goodness trumps the evil in our sin.... each and every time.  It ushers into our darkened minds the inevitable vetting of the truth before our very eyes.  It shows us without question that the evil inherent in our sins is more ugly, more deplorable, more noxious than we have ever understood.  It shows us what Satan is afraid to show us, exposing the real consequences hidden in the darkened backroom of Satan's lies. 

And in that Light, it offers us the chance to change our allegiance, change sides for our improvement, becoming realigned with something far better.  Few of us desire things that are immediately ugly or repugnant to our eyes.  But sin masquerades its true likeness into something that beguiles us into believing that it's desirable, when in reality it is not, if we are so willing to be instructed....   It is within this light that our first impressions and alliances can be rightly changed for the better, defrocking the sin of its masquerading nature and learning to see through its beguiling deception to its true underlying ugliness.

Unlike Satan, the Lord invites such a contest, one which squares off and saliently contrasts the Good against the evil.  There is nothing hidden in this process, as Satan demands.  Everything is to become fairly and rightly exposed.  Such a proving is demanded within His commandment of repentance, allowing His Spirit full access to our hearts and minds so as to flood the playing field with Light and discernment. 

The Lord knows that if given just half a chance, we would readily and willingly concede that Goodness is far more desirable than anything else in the Universe, and then turn away from each and every sin like the leprous plague it really is. 

Once so exposed, we then are given the opportunity to cast our vote again, another chance to decide who we wished to be, another choice to determine our future. It is possible, through the blood of the Lamb, to become forgiven, and for us to start again, to become better than before, without the taint of yesterday's sins and burdens.  By His Grace, we can change.  If I may state figuratively, "Yes, there is a Santa Claus!"  Glory Hallelujah!

And looking back upon our life's path we will discover that we are no longer the person that committed those past sins..., no longer the person who can again commit those past sins..., no longer the person who wants anything to do with those past sins, praising Him: "Free at last.... Free at last.... Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" 

His Wisdom and Sacrifice has made us grow up.  By His Grace we have changed, changed into the manner of person He would have us become.... Changed to magnify His Will in our daily walk.... Changed to help others along the way.... offering (not forcing) this understanding to their minds...
