Greg Boyd at his best!
What does it look like to be entangled with Jesus?
I have a theory… Heaven is right here on earth… right now, you know, like in different time dimension. Or maybe in the non-temporal dimension. Hey… it’s just my theory. “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,”Ephesians 2:6”
This is one of my favorite messages from Greg Boyd. If you’ve never listened to him, please give it a shot. You may think he is crazy at first but hang in there… it will be worth it. I first heard of him when I read “The Case For Christ” (great book!). Boyd was one of the theological professors that author Lee Strobel interviewed in his quest to prove that Jesus was just a myth, legend or at most, a great teacher and mystic.
I found the interview interesting enough that I searched for more information about Boyd on the Internet. I learned that he had started his own church in Saint Paul, MN by the name of Woodland Hills Church and had a website. His sermons were (and still are) available for download. I started listening to him. That was back in 1999 and I’ve been hooked on him ever since. You can go back to his first recorded sermon in 1993 if you like. Actually, I love to go back and listened to some of his older sermons from time to time. He is really brilliant but also scatter brained at the same time… kind of like the absent minded professor. This sermon, in particular is probably not the best one to start out on because you have to really hang in there for a while to start understanding what the heck he is talking about. You have to be willing to hear him all the way through till he gets to the point. But it will be worth it to find out how you are entangled with Jesus. I think Greg Boyd is a modern day prophet. His perspective on Jesus is revolutionary. I dare you to listen to this message all the way through.
