Churchers' usual comments are often that we need to get back to the Bible.  That's partially true.  It would be the Bible that holds the genuine article about Jesus the Lamb.  God gave us the Word to learn of the Who that He gave us.  The problem, that we obviously experience, is that within the call to get back to the Bible there has been a major hijacking.  We have gone back to Religious Law and not rebirthed to Life Freedom.  The regulatory fearful would always prefer law over walking out into the Great Unknowing of spiritual potential and possibility.

Jesus is the Gigantic Train Wreck to man's habit; religious or un.  Jesus, not the Bible, hung on a Cross and paid the price.  The Bible is so valued because of such revelation regarding the Son.

As we surely want to increase and improve as students of the Word of God, may we be found to be obsessed with the lifestyle of Jesus and not mere proof-texts to confirm our stances.  Within the spiritual flow of earthlings there are those who love to help the hurting and, then, there are those who would rather just be right.  There is nothing more right than watching Jesus defend the public reject and then you and me trying to follow that ministerial pattern.

As the Word of God builds our faith, may we find that the target has always been to know Jesus rather than knowing Bible....You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that bear witness of Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me, that you may have life.  I do not receive glory from men; but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves (John 5:39-42).

It's an interesting thing in that as we transition from getting back to the Bible to getting back to Jesus, moods improve, effectiveness escalates, and the community is relieved of our religious holier than Thou facial expressions.
