Losing Our Identity

In the world, people tend to identify us by our gender, nationality, profession or qualifications.  If we are ‘In Christ’ we become ‘Beloved Disciples’  and follow Him. We put Him on as a garment and lose our own identity.

As the anonymous writer of the 4th Gospel (later called John by Church Fathers) said in chapter one verse 11-

“He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”

Paul endorsed the teachings of Jesus but his writings are often confusing – sometimes he quotes both sides of the argument without quotation marks.  For an explanation of the confusing passages used to silence women – See : Silencing Women – Cartoon Overview
