I am enjoying this class experience very much (does it strike you how often movie media rips off the great themes of the God Story?)!
This week we will cover sessions 5-7 (pages 20-30) Death Trap Abyss/Blood Covenant/Crossroads
What does the Good News mean with no bad news? The God Story teaches that there is a chasm between God and mankind, and only ONE way to cross the bridge of light. Understanding the abyss can be motivating to spiritual process. Not for the purpose of “scaring the hell” out of people, but to paint a faithful picture of what is at stake.
This then leads to a reasoned look at the Blood Covenant in order to understand where the shedding of blood (so not PC) fits into the Story. This brings about a collision between life and death – where the Son of God enters to stand at ground zero. Hence, the Crossroads of Life and Death!
