In the Removing Cultural Blinders- Rules and Relationships Podcast we discuss the ideology of looking at the Bible through the lens of the western culture’s idea of Rules and Relationships
In the book Misreading Scripture Through Western Eyes, we at the Bible and Coffee Podcast have had to view certain stories from a whole different perspective. The chapter on rules and relationships is another mind-bending idea that maybe the western culture has it all wrong when it comes to our relationship with the Father.
On this podcast, we discuss the gut-wrenching idea that the Authors present in this book. Does the covenant when we break the rules or when we sever the relationship? If the tipping point for all of our standards comes from rules how can we create a relationship with the Lord?
How do I follow God’s rules?
We go deep into the discussing rules of God. What are the rules? Did God give us a standard to live by? We answer all these questions as we discuss the Greatest Command
He answered, “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27 NIV
Amy and I fight our traditional pasts as we talk about how much easier it is to follow rules than it is to create a deep meaningful relationship.
