Are you a mystic?

“Perhaps the gut issue is not how much theology we have studied or how much Scripture we have memorized. All that really matter is this: Have you experienced the furious longing of God or not?

“This very question provoked the brilliant Karl Rahner to prophesy: 'In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic (one who has experienced God for real) or nothing at all'

“In times of persecution, theoretical Christianity will collapes”— The Furious Longing of God, pages 125-126

<idle musing>
That is the final excerpt from The Furious Longing of God. I hope you were challenged, even offended, by what he has said. Anything, as long as it made you re-examine where you are and where you are headed in your Christian life. May you experience Christ in you, the hope of glory!

The book will be released sometime in March of this year; visit you local bookstore and ask for it. It is published by David C. Cook; the ISBN is 978-1-4347-6750-9.
