Our small group from church is now in Chapter 9 The Divine Conspiracy. Dallas Willard will be giving sound wisdom on what it means to be a disciple of Christ. But before diving in, he warns us of four objectives which are NOT primary in becoming disciples. He lists 1) external conformity to the wording of Jesus’ teachings about how to respond in certain situations, 2) profession of perfectly correct doctrine, 3) faithfulness to activities of the church and 4) seeking special states of mind or ecstatic experiences all as non-primary. While none are bad in and of themselves, they just do not create the kind of transformation that God wants for us. Stay tuned for what does.
