The Torah is the foundation for all Scripture. A lack of understanding the Torah leads to a lack of understanding Scripture.
“Because He saved me, I owe Him my life.” “He’s been good to me. So, I owe Him ______.” Does this sound familiar? Then, keep reading.

Religion at its core is the packaging of what was sacred and intimate and creating a system of it. Religion will never have the power to heal, just as fig leaves will never have the power to truly cover.
Religion is a man-made institution that seeks to categorize and control people. YAH (God) never meant for us to have or follow a religion.
Wholeness is God’s highest call for us. The work He has begun is to that end.
Truth doesn’t change, but Personified Truth is always moving. We must be prepared to follow Him even if it doesn’t make sense.
