I think there is a place reserved for deep friendship that requires a shared commonality of mind, heart or experience. Spirit is a reality touched and shared by those who are attuned to the same truth. Life can be enjoyed from many angles and a bond of fellowship can be woven through many endeavors or loves but faith holds a unique quality of togetherness that goes beyond much else that I've ever experienced.

Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? – Amos 3:3

About Eric Blauer

I am Frederick Christian Blauer IV, but I go by Eric, it sounds less like a megalomaniac but still hints at my Scandinavian destiny of coastal conquest and ultimate rule. I have accumulated a fair number of titles: son, brother, husband, father, pastor, writer, artist and a few other more colorful titles by my fanged fans. I am a lover of story be it heard, read or watched in all beauty, gory or glory. I write and speak as an exorcist or poltergeist, splashing holy water, spilling wine and breaking bread between the apocalypse and a sleeping baby. I am possessed by too many words and they get driven out like wild pigs and into the waters of my blog at www.fcb4.tumblr.com. I work as a pastor at Jacob's Well Church (www.jacobswellspokane.com) across the tracks on 'that' side of town. I follow Christ in East Central Spokane among saints, sinners, angels, demons, crime, condoms, chaos, beauty, goodness and powerful weakness. I have more questions than answers, grey hairs than brown, fat than muscle, fire than fireplace and experience more love from my wife, family and friends than a man should be blessed with in one lifetime.

  1. So, what does it mean to be “attuned to the same truth”?

  2. For me that means following Jesus.

  3. So, what you really mean is “attuned to the same belief(s)”? Otherwise you seem committed to the idea that there are different truths that people can be attuned to with respect to the same subject matter. Or, is this what you actually believe?

  4. “For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.” -John 1:17

    I think the Biblical scriptures teach that people will be judged on the light they have. I have found light for life in Christ.

    “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” -John 1:14

    I share the same goal as Paul expressed:

    “My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” -Colossians 2:2-3

  5. I appreciate the verses, but I don’t feel like you are answering my questions. Are you a relativist or did you mean “belief” where you wrote “truth”?

  6. All truth is ultimately meant to lead to Christ.
    Something that is true can be in any place or religion.
    But all light is intended to lead one back to the son.
    Truth is a person…he is Christ.
    But reflection of truth can be found in many places.
