Welcome to Darash Chai
In the beginning there were two trees in the Garden of Eden. One, a tree that brought life. The other, a tree that brought death. The serpent showed up and placed the focus of mankind on the tree that brought death. Is it possible that we as a race have been focusing on the wrong tree. We talk about good and evil, right and wrong. We discuss what is moral and what is immoral. All of these questions, however, were on the tree that brought death.
Perhaps it is time to shift our focus. To stop looking to the tree of death by asking the question of good and evil. Rather, let’s start asking the question of life and death. If we can shift our assumptions on this most basic of questions, we can change our entire paradigm. If we change our paradigm, we can change the world.
What will be the result? I do not know, but you are invited to come along and join us as we Seek Life.
- Ep 133: The Fifth Word – Deuteronomy 16:18-18:22
As we move through the “legal” portions of Deuteronomy, we have discovered that the order of the commands is not random, even though it might seem like it. Rather, these chapters of Deuteronomy serve as real world examples of just how we are to expand the 10 Commandments into our own lives and live them out. This week we begin the fifth Command. Honor your Father and Mother. On the surface this command seems extremely limited to simple family relationships, but as it is expanded in the course of Deuteronomy we discover that this command spans the entire spectrum of human authority structures. Structures that begin in the home.
