The Way You Think Vs the Way You Are | Church 3/17/24

Did you do the assignment? No one has love. You are alone. God’s mind is clear and present. God’s love is understanding, not emotional.

Church with Jesse Lee Peterson, Sunday, March 17, 2024 

||  See clips, links, and notes below. 

Nobody really did the Assignment, so we’re all re-assigned for this week: Get rid of your heroes. Trust no one. So we discuss the Biblical Question: Can you see the contradiction between the way you think vs the way you are? 

No one loves anyone. Jesse gives examples (including Biden’s wife). You’re all alone — even given “friends,” marriage, etc. People discuss stress and letting go. 

A mother joins us with daughters who’ve attended for some time. Why did God give us a mind? God’s mind is clear, and God’s love is understanding. The human mind is dark, and human love is emotional / hate. 

New Biblical Question: Do you have morals and values? If so, where did they come from? 

ANNOUNCEMENT: Women’s Forum third Thursday of the month, 7 PM at BOND in L.A., March 21, 2024
