VII. Where Do We Go From Here?

You may have noticed that the key concept of “living on the net” is not necessarily found in so many words in Scripture. I will admit to that and I view this as only the beginning to this idea. It is fascinating and it has broad applications, but it also has its dangers. As with any teaching there may be seeds of heresy within this one. I am not advocating a free-for-all bashing of all theological systems, nor am I suggesting that my way is the only right way. I know my personal failings and my lack of understanding of the Cosmic Order much too well to say that. The key to everything is that we need to be humble in the way we approach the Unseen and keep our study of it to the one place and the one authority that has anything to say about the Eternal World – the Holy Bible.

That said, all theological systems that are even remotely based on the Bible will have some Truth in them somewhere, simply because they have taken the Bible as their basis. This Truth can be as obvious as marble walls in a building, or more hidden like gold in a gravel bank. Sometimes the system even makes the Truth found in it as worthless as rice kernels strewn in a puddle of motor oil, but the Truth is still there.

For that reason let’s respect our Christian brothers and sisters and love them with all their flaws and weaknesses. Let’s remember our own limitations and that our true worth comes not from our system of theology but from the fact that we are Children of the One Living God who has chosen us despite ourselves and has adopted us into His Holy Family.

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. (Jude 24-25 — NIV)
