Watching the launch video, of DrSusanT introducing the Church of Holy Rebels, you may have questions:
- Exactly what do you mean by “rebel” — the Facebook “page guardians” labeled “Church of Holy Rebels” as inflammatory. Yep, that is correct. I had to appeal that decision and it took somewhat of a “rant” to get that accomplished. That is an example of what a rebel does–when angered or “riled” up about an injustice, a rebel does not take “no” as the final answer. A rebel will ask questions of authority and will not “go along to get along” when injustice, inconsistency, unethical, or immoral actions or behavior are happening with them or with others.
- Then exactly what do you mean by “holy rebel”— this would be that the Divine One, the spark of the Eternal One resides within the rebel and inspires the holy rebel to feel or exhibit anger or a strong reaction to injustice, inconsistency, unethical or immoral actions or behavior just as the ancient and modern day prophets did and still do today.
Caution: Being a Holy Rebel for the cause of Christ–loving and serving all people as Christ loved and served all people is sometimes feeling and exhibiting anger and strong reactions to injustice, inconsistency, unethical or immoral actions or behavior. This can be costly, dangerous. Holy Rebels know and experience the Divine and Eternal One as demanding a lot from us–the gospel of Jesus the Christ is a Hostile Gospel–it calls us to always question the status quo–the way things are.
Stay tuned…more to come…
