We Spanked God

Biblical Thoughts

by Mike Tovar

'Rock' yourself, not me or others. That's the message of this booklet. Because, as Jesus said to me also, unless you willingly break yourself on the rock massif that I am, I will come around and crush you to smithereens. There is what's called a letting process, which is now, where God is giving us a generous space to "work out your salvation in fear and trembling". It's said that peace is not the absence of war but the presence of God. He's actualized in Jesus Christ. And, seeing what I also am capable of on this nice planet, I'm very glad for the chance. You know, we said once or twice as overconfident youngsters, Someday we're going to have to get high on life. Right on, brother, but only in that name above all names, in which every knee shall eventually bow, willingly or unwillingly. Read on, stranger. Let's get to know each other.
This booklet's pages are one-liners as biblical truisms, followed by a short prose summary of Judeo-Christian doctrine, and end with a personal note to my child with universal application. Jim Elliot's famous final words are listed last for his martyred virtuosity. This man cannot re-read his own words without either weeping or laughing. People need that as God only knows. Therein is this letter's orientation to what is called the great commission of Jesus Christ. Like the lawyer Jesus mentioned, you may not want to contract but for expediency. The truisms are written delicately yet definitely. Of orientation, I am qualified to articulate these truisms. Per my brief biography, I began confessing Jesus Christ in 1975. Knowing to not be as Jesus proscribed, "many masters (teachers)," I know the data with experienced discernment. Well schooled, with a semester of college at Goddard then a lifetime of common labor, my childhood with U.S. embassy parents in Southeast Asia added a global perspective. I've Irish wit and Spanish fervor plus a long familiarity with death honed to it. With a special concern for children as observed by all my parentage from early on is this poetic biblical apologetic. God knows those who are his and fairly meets us where we are, be it in the conscience of an Ojibway asking God to protect him from his worst enemy, himself, or those two guys in the temple that day who Jesus pointed out. My comprehensive work helps God do this.
