God, Part 3

In this episode of Heart Of The Matter: Full Circle, host Shawn McCraney delves deeper into understanding the true nature of God, exploring the concept of God as a perfect plurality of masculine and feminine traits. Shawn uses scriptural references and thoughtful analogies to illustrate his perspective, challenging traditional views of the Trinity. He emphasizes the importance of faith and love, and the unity of all believers, while introducing “A United Front,” an initiative aimed at promoting peace and unity among all faiths.

Introduction to FULL CIRCLE

If you have been with us on our FULL CIRCLE, we are focused on people who claim faith in God – out the gate – including people seeking to have faith in God. And while our reference is all based on scriptural evidence, we see the scripture as teaching a contextual picture of God’s genuine love for the creations made in His image.

Faith and Love

Embracing All People

We want to embrace all people in this vein, around the world, and set aside all denominational and even doctrinal divisions between us. In that vein, we preach faith and love and are here to help people walk in this – outside of all religious demands – at least outside religious demands from us.

Personal Beliefs

Yes, we step forward with faith in God who had a Son who gave His life for the sins of the world – but it is from this specific victory that we stand with all people of faith as the scripture plainly teaches that the world has been reconciled to the Father and all people are now free to believe – or not.

Teachings and Invitations

Do I personally maintain explicit beliefs? Absolutely. But they are my views, and I stand before the Living God maintaining them without shame. Will I impose them on others? Never. But on this program, we teach them so anyone seeking can test their validity.

Great News Network

Introduction to A United Front

So, in the face of all of this, we present to you the last expression of seven that we offer as part of the Great News Network – and we call it, A United Front.

A United Front

Where the Christian Peace Initiative is all about Christians (of every flavor and creed) agreeing to live in peace with each other, a United Front is for all expressions of faith – Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, Jewish and any other – to unite in faith and love and to choose peace and unity in this world over incessant fighting and prejudice.

Personal Experience

Attending Church

Well, I went to church last week. And it was utterly amazing. The congregation was open, without pretense, and the meeting was absent of all fig-leaf religiosity!

Twelve Step Meeting

They actually sang a song about breaking religion, and throughout the whole thing, all the speakers gave God all the glory and honor and credit. What I like most was that everyone – without exception – introduced themselves and openly admitted their main struggle.

Personal Reflections

Mary and I and our daughters rejoiced in the honest transparency of Mallory, her humbling herself before the Living God, and out of love for her family that she would openly discard all pretense of holiness and endorse submission to Her Maker.

The Real Make-up of God

Introduction

Okay, God – last part numbered III. Last week I introduced to you a summation of what I personally believe is the best definition of the Living God – Not a man-made Trinity. Not a Binity. Not Modalism. None of that clap.

Perfect Plurality

But “One God of Perfect Plurality.” Perfect plurality of what? Perfect Masculine and Perfect Feminine. I want to take some artistic license here as a means to better illustrate this – And I will use the color Red (HOLD UP) to represent the Perfect masculine. And then we will use the color Yellow (HOLD UP) to represent perfect Feminine. Mixed these two perfectly and what do we get? One Perfect Orange (HOLD UP).

Artistic Representation

Notice that in the Image of the Trinity God, (plural) would have made Man in His image, “three,” not Two? A male, a female and a female? No. A male, and a male and a female? No. Male and female created He them. In His image. One Perfect Plural.

God’s Expressions

Masculine and Feminine Traits

In the Old Testament “mostly-masculine” representation of Himself, we see thunder and fire on Mt. Sinai, the giving of the Law, warfare, severity, punishment, banishment, death, and other extreme masculine expressions while His feminine traits are not overly present or observable.

New Testament Representation

But in His profundity, this very same God, “so loved the world that He gave us Himself in and through the Man called, Yeshua of Nazareth, who was always in the service of His Father, who submitted with perfect deontological obedience to His will and ways and like the best women on earth, sacrificed His own life for us.

Feminine Traits in Yeshua

As mentioned last week, the Son’s “approach” (teachings and expressions) were far more feminine than masculine (though He also expressed masculine traits at times like clearing the temple tables and such). But it was in and through both of these expressions the knowledge of the living God is found.

Biblical Supports

Scriptural References

When it comes to how we choose to follow and honor the Living God, we approach Him with a more deontological mindset which can be summarized by saying, “If God wants it, I will do it.”

Duality in Creation

In Genesis 1:26 we read, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

One Perfect Plural

Do you see? Can you hear? The scripture goes on with Paul making a huge presentation – especially in Romans – between Spirit and flesh. Remember, he says in Galatians 5:17, “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”

Worship in Spirit and Truth

Recall that Yeshua says about His apostles, “the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” But just like the delineation between heaven and earth, dry land and sea, Yeshua tells His disciples, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

Conclusion

Final Thoughts

To worship YAHAVAH in “spirit and truth” is to know, see, and understand the Red and yellow as perfect Orange. To accept Him and His Son and to pursue them in spirit AND truth is life eternal.
