Radix Fidem Curriculum 06

7. Restore the Heart of the Gospel

Again, we are not promoting our organization. If this presentation calls your name, the first thing you should do is spend time alone with God. Take the time to move the core of your conscious awareness from your head to your heart. Stop trusting your intellect so much, and subject your mind to the leadership of your heart. That’s the same as saying learn to live by your convictions, not your reason.

We don’t need another Christian denomination. Radix Fidem can provide that service, but that’s not our intent. This is not a call for you to join our group and follow our rules. We see no need to seek control of the process and its outcomes. We have full confidence that God working in your heart will lead you where He wants you.

Instead of a discrete organization, we would rather see a fellowship arise, an informal association of believers who agree that we need something different from what we already have. We need more believers who live the heart-led way, regardless of all other human affiliations in their lives. We need to share our support for this different and very ancient approach to discovering and living our faith, our convictions and our commitment to Christ.

We envision a parallel society, a secret nation of hearts that cuts across all the human institutions and identities. There’s nothing stopping you from starting your own organization, but our experience indicates that this requires great care and consideration. It’s too easy to take things in the same directions that have already failed. We are happy to spin off all kinds of fellowships with their own names, but we warn you it won’t be easy.

Instead, we would rather this remain just an informal association of private individuals who share the same driving force. It’s a spiritual family identity that has no meaning to this world. We aren’t even trying to influence things. What we hope to see is the rising presence of people who walk in the Covenant of Christ according to His own ideas about what it should look like. Don’t join our Radix Fidem covenant unless you sense the Lord demands that of you.

Let your convictions lead you.

    I am very glad to have been able to download this. Time to share after i have reviewed it several times. It helps me to have our beliefs “spelled out” in a written format. You are more gifted to do that than I. And your gift is a blessing to us

    Thanks Linda, and Happy Mother’s Day. I wrote that and I still have to spend time memorizing it well enough to use it myself.
