I love this
//By the kingdom of God we mean the government of God, the politics of God, the alternative arrangement of the world that comes from God. In his practice of radical hospitality Jesus was announcing the arrival of a new way of arranging human society…The cross is beautiful because it is the place where sin as a singularity is absorbed, forgiven, and transformed into reconciliation.//
I am a grateful alcoholic!! How do you reach the bottom? Let an addiction that becomes God to you suddenly not work!! taking It to the Limit I lost everything and I wanted to die!! instead that thing that had become a monkey on my back left me betrayed, abandoned and abused. At the point where there was nothing left and I was drinking and using up my life with a substance and Criminal behaviors that cut me off completely from Humanity I found I had to be completely humbled and acknowledge the loss of everything. I really should be dead!! It was precisely at that point that I realized there was an escape that turned out to be a new way of arranging my life according to love, Justice and Truth!!!
