If someone were to ask me the impetus for the biggest changes in my spiritual thought, I would respond with a philosophy about the Trinity. I always believed in the Trinity, but as I thought about what that meant in my belief system, everything changed. Instead of a simple, monotheistic “Jesus” who was an imperial ruler over my life, I began getting mysterious glimpses of the Triune God. I saw God the Father, the provider. I saw Christ, the son and Messiah, the one who walks beside me. I saw the Spirit, who flows through me. I saw relationships and communion, not dictatorships. I saw glimpses of an ultimate reality where communion is complete, and we are all in one. I began getting glimpses of how this mysterious philosophy effects my life. Instead of separate categories of people, I saw all in communion with all. Instead of strict differentiation between Heaven and Earth, creator and creation, I saw glimpses of a single Kingdom.
Another change happened as I saw the logical conclusion. I saw that same sex relationships in communion are equally as valid as opposite sex relationships. I saw that the differences between male and female will be no more, and that those who question their sexual identify may actually be a perfect example of the perfect Kingdom. In this Kingdom, communion always wins over differences, and we will all be one.
Rob Bell said “Love Wins”. I say something similar, “Communion Wins”.
