In the beginning, God created the world.  In the beginning, Satan had a Plan to wreck that world.  In the beginning, God had a Plan to counter Satan's Plan.  That counter Plan was Jesus.  But Satan also had his counter Plan to Jesus.  He laid out that Plan in the three temptations of Christ.  Jesus flatly rejected those temptations, but Satan didn't take that loss lying down.  He withdrew until a more opportune time.  From the beginning of the Church Satan's had a Plan.  That Plan was to prostitute the Church to his form of power.  Through its history the Church has struggled to resist that temptation.  The result has been a Church divided between God's Plan, and Satan's.  But it's time to come out of that and back to the original Plan of God.

What does it mean to be a disciple of  Jesus; to hear, know, and follow the voice of the Good Sheperd.  Can we really come to know God intimately through the Spirit within us? 


J. Randall Ory is currently in the process of writing his second book, as a follow up to "PROSTITUTE," giving insite into how Contemplation can help individual Christians grow into relationship with Christ.


What is the cross to  Christianity?  Why does Jesus make his clarion call for all followers to take up their cross, if they want to follow Him.  Is suffering the key to new life in God?  J. Randall Ory explores these questions in the upcoming third release in the "Church Renewal" series.
