Exactly the right questions to be asking, and I’ll admit I don’t necessarily have all the answers. But I am working on a post soon that I think will address a lot of these same doubts and questions that have been bouncing around in my head! After all, what does it really matter to have this feeling of being drawn towards Christ, and to be drawn towards love, if that loving impulse isn’t expressed in a life lived in accordance with Christ’s teachings? Why that gap?
It’s certainly something I have reflected on deeply, and continue to reflect on. As noted above, I will be sure to write something on it soon!
