Seeking, Schmeeking

19 Apr

You will never hear us talk to believers about seeking God. Jesus said seek and you will find. Period at the end of that sentence… When you got saved, you found the Kingdom He told you to seek. make such a virtue out of seeking. We think that God is somehow impressed when someone is “hungry” for spirituality. Even if that hunger is completely misguided, we think that it is still somehow noble to be a seeker. “Joe does a lot of drugs and meditates to the Dalai Lama everyday. At least he’s a seeker!”

Jews are seeking. Muslims are seeking. Seeking is still human effort. We have a wealth of seeking language. Very little finding language in the church… Christianity is the only religion that can scandalously boast that we are no longer seeking, but have confidently laid hold of God. It seems such an arrogant boast! I have all of God! This is the stumbling block of the ages.
