Description
 
This is the Second Edition of Father-Son Theology, it has been revised and expanded.

This book will help you embrace God as your Father and see yourself as a son/daughter of God. In other words, it will help you hear what God is communicating to His people at this time.

The concept of God as Father sounds simple enough, but the related truths are clouded by 2,000 years of Christianity being filtered through the lens of Western civilization. In Father-Son Theology, I have worked passionately to separate biblical Christianity from Western culture. That means:

  • Separating Christianity from the dualism that lies at the foundation of Western civilization;
  • Eliminating the influence of Plato that came into the Church primarily through Augustine and Calvin;
  • And embracing the Biblical/Hebraic concept of God.

In Father-Son Theology, I take a stand on several major issues, challenging doctrines that Christians have accepted as truth, without taking the time to consider the historical development of the related doctrines.

Just one example of a false doctrine that developed as a result of mixing the hedonistic philosophy of Plato with Christianity is the doctrine that God is so holy that He must separate Himself from sin and sinful people. This false doctrine came into Christianity during the fourth century and has led to a historic misunderstanding of what happened when Adam sinned and what happened when Jesus died on the cross. There was no gap of eternity created between God and man when Adam sinned in the Garden. Nor did Father-God separate Himself from Jesus when He hung on the cross and became sin for us. There is nothing in the nature of God that makes Him separate Himself from sinners. The best, most perfect, example of holiness that we have is Jesus Christ, and He did not separate Himself from sinners. In fact, He hung around them. In order to understand God’s holiness, we must relate it to His love--which causes Him to pursue sinners, not separate Himself.

There are other fundamental misunderstandings within Western Christianity that have profound implications on everything we believe. They distort our view of God. The Western Christianity that we have been indoctrinated into robs us of the supernatural dimension inherent in biblical Christianity. It distances us from the Kingdom of God. It yields a form of godliness that denies the power.

Currently, Dr. Eberle travels with Linda, his wife of 38 plus years, across North America, ministering at churches, Bible colleges, seminaries, and leadership conferences.
